Colliers' Sayo Kamara named to Commercial Observer's 30 Under 30

Everything might be bigger in Texas, but Sayo Kamara decided that the deals he liked were sized properly in New York.

In December of 2015 Kamara was in New York on vacation when he landed a summer internship with Lee & Associates and he decided to take it.

“I sold off all my stuff and started from scratch,” Kamara said. “I waited on tables at night.”

After the Lee & Associates internship, Kamara, a University of North Texas graduate originally from Houston, landed a gig at Cresa before finding his way to Colliers.

“My first agency assignment was 48 Wall Street,” Kamara said. At the end of 2018 he represented the landlord, MacDonald & Cie, for the 7,150-square-foot space, landing the software company UrbanFT.

Since then, he’s scored a number of great deals like representing Brookfield Properties at 105 West 125th Street in the 23,000-square-foot deal they signed with the Children’s Aid Society to expand their footprint.
