Expert Insights: Aaron Jodka


Diverse experience alongside a unique and global perspective

For comprehensive research that can keep pace with a rapidly changing market, advisors and clients turn to Colliers' Aaron Jodka.

As the Director of Research for U.S. Capital Markets, Aaron's experience runs deep. During his 15-plus years’ experience in this career, he's advised countless institutional clients across the country and the capital stack, delivering unique perspectives on market dynamics and investment strategies.

An integral part of the Colliers Capital Markets team, Aaron doesn't just analyze facts and figures; he uncovers the deeper story and unravels the connecting threads to accelerate clients' success.

Connecting Capital With Opportunity

In today's economic environment, investors need to react quickly, and data-driven insights are more critical to their success than ever.

Aaron is committed to arming our advisors and clients with the market intelligence necessary to make informed decisions. He delivers actionable insights spanning every major asset class by conducting a deep-dive analysis of internal, proprietary and third-party data sources. He also leverages the Colliers platform to collaborate with a diverse group of industry experts, developing strategic solutions tailored to each client and their needs.

"Our powerful platform provides seamless local, regional, national and global connectivity for our clients. From leadership down, our professionals are always a phone call or click away," he says.

An economist at heart, Aaron knows that real estate data can quickly turn stale. That means quarterly research reports alone won't always paint an accurate picture of what's happening on the ground. To keep investors ahead of the curve and on top of the latest trends, he regularly produces capital markets content, which includes contributing to the weekly newsletter, Colliers Quick Hits. These weekly write-ups deliver fresh perspectives on the trends and topics that matter most to investors. Aaron also authors Compass, an internal monthly release featuring the most accurate, up-to-date market activity, plus a variety of other forward-thinking thought leadership papers.

“I’m not just telling you what’s already happened. I’m filling you in on what’s happening now and what you can expect down the road to navigate future challenges. That’s the differentiator. That’s what sets us apart.”
