Todd Cochran

Brokerage Vice President

Dayton

I am proud to represent Industrial landlords and tenants in the Greater Dayton market on behalf of Colliers.  I started my career in commercial real estate a few years out of college at a regional firm in Dayton.  There I began to learn what it takes to achieve the most success for my clients.  A few of the necessities are attention to detail, approaching each project with enthusiastic energy, truthfulness at all times and an exceptional work ethic.

As a lifelong Dayton resident, I know the market and people very well.  Strong relationships and market knowledge are two areas that require constant attention.  Colliers Research provides me up to date information on the overall market, but it is through my relationships and every day practice that I discern the micro-trends in the Dayton region.  Whether I am advising a landlord or tenant, I am confident I can provide the best information as they go through the decision making process, resulting in the most favorable transaction terms.
