Colliers Reno Hires Experienced Multifamily Broker


Gerrit Hillebrand joins the Colliers Reno team from SVN

Reno, NV, June 9, 2021 - Colliers Reno is excited to announce that Gerrit Hillebrand has joined the team as Vice President, effective June 1, 2021. Gerrit will be focusing primarily on multifamily and land transactions, but his relationships and experience span multiple asset classes including industrial, office, and residential. Gerrit was previously a Senior Multifamily Advisor at SVN | Gold Dust Commercial.

Gerrit is the son of a builder and third generation real estate agent, starting his real estate career in Arizona where he worked with developers and investors on large scale residential properties. He relocated to Reno and has been building his land and multifamily business, spending the last decade specializing in off-market opportunities for his clients. Gerrit has more than 17 years in real estate and has seen his clients through the ups and downs of the real estate cycle. Gerrit prides himself on being a marketing and business development expert, understanding the true value in going above and beyond for his clients. In addition to his love of real estate, Gerrit has learned how to foster partnerships with a wide array of clients, has become proficient in negotiating complex acquisitions, and drafts strong contracts to protect his clients’ current and future interests.

“We are excited to have Gerrit join Colliers,” said Colliers Regional Managing Director, Randy Dixon. “He brings a strong commitment and expertise to maximize value for his clients, and he understands the value of collaboration and leveraging others to provide the highest level of service to his clients. He is a great fit to the Colliers team.”

Colliers Reno is delighted to welcome Gerrit to the expanding team. Gerrit’s role in the multifamily space will add yet another expert advisor to an already experienced office. As Reno’s population continues to grow, demand for multifamily development sites and stabilized apartment properties will continue to increase. Gerrit is already collaborating with some of the Colliers Reno experts and he is excited to leverage his contacts and relationships to help win more business.

“This is an exciting move, and I’m looking forward to contributing to the growth of our multifamily sector,” said Gerrit Hillebrand. “The reach of the Colliers network will provide new opportunities for my existing and future clients, and the door is opening to a significant shift in market share for the Reno office. I’m honored to join such an experienced and well-respected team.”
