Colliers Welcomes Liz Davis to Portland Office


Addition of veteran multifamily broker demonstrates firm’s commitment to continued growth

PORTLAND, Ore. – June 14, 2022 – Leading diversified professional services and investment management company Colliers today announced that veteran multifamily and land sale broker Liz Davis has joined the Portland office. 

“We are excited to have Liz on board,” said David Kotansky, managing director and market leader for Portland. “The multifamily sector is performing very well right now, and adding her to our team will help us continue growing our offering in this area.”

Liz has more than 25 years of commercial real estate experience and has closed more than $1 billion in transactional volume, primarily working with high-net-worth investors, institutional clients and developers. She was the broker of record for the $127 million sale of Yard Apartments in 2016 – one of the largest apartment sales ever in Portland’s urban core. Most recetly, she completed the sale of a 33-acre development site in Bend, which will become the city’s largest rental community with just under 600 units. Over the course of her career, Liz has worked with several high profile brokerages, including Apartment Realty Advisors, Institutional Property Advisors and Marcus and Millichap.  

“I’m thrilled to join Colliers,” Davis said. “The culture and platform Colliers offers are unmatched in terms of the resources and support they provide to brokers. I look forward to tackling new goals and helping clients set new records here.”

Liz’s addition to Colliers’ Portland office is the most recent in a series of growth moves this year. Five brokers joined the fhe firm in February, including leading office agency team Trevor Kafoury, Al Kennedy and Autumn Brice, industrial broker Tom Knecht, and multifamily broker Casey Winkler. 

“Colliers is deeply committed to continued growth in this market,” said Kotansky. “The team members we’ve added this year are a key component of this strategy, and will play a significant role in advancing our objectives.”
