Colliers | Raleigh Hires Top Industrial Brokerage Team


RALEIGH, N.C. – (December 2, 2020) – A powerhouse industrial real estate brokerage team has joined Colliers | Raleigh. Industry veterans Larry Lakins, Hunter Willard and Andrew Young are well known as a top team in the Raleigh market and have decades of owner and occupier experience in industrial and flex property types across North Carolina. Together, the team brings more than 35 years of experience to the firm. 

Lakins and Willard will both join Colliers as a senior vice president and principal, with Young as an assistant vice president.

“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to join the new office on the ground floor,” Lakins said. “The new leadership and commitment to growth and excellence was an enormous factor in our decision. We are really looking forward to being a part of expanding the Colliers presence in this market.” 

The team, who primarily focuses on landlord representation, tenant representation and property disposition, was responsible for more than 2 million square feet of transactions over the last 12 months.

Scott Adams, regional president of Colliers Virginia and Raleigh, noted “Raleigh has taken off as an institutionally-demanded market for flex and industrial space, and no firm or team has led that progress more than Larry, Hunter and Andrew. Their tenacity to help owners and occupiers complete leasing and sales transactions of finished product and land is highly respected already, and we plan to tie them in more closely with our other top regional and national resources to raise the bar even higher.”
