Philip Garrett

Executive Vice President


As Executive Vice president in the Fairfield/Walnut Creek offices for Colliers, I specialize in the leasing, sales and development of Industrial real estate in the I-80/680 and Highway 4 corridors, as well as  certain core markets in the Bay Area. I do mostly repeat business and work closely with my clients to improve value and efficiency. I have been invloved in transactions in excess of $5 billion dollars in my carreer.   

Since Covid,  industrial real estate has exploded with the lowest vacancies and highest rents, absorption,  land values and cost of construction that we have ever experienced. The cost  to lease, develop, buy and own industrial property has never been more  costly or competitive. Experience and the ability to analyze data and cost components has never been more important.

I  was born in Oakland, California. I graduated from U.C. Santa Barbara with a BA in 1980. In addition to raising our 3 children and entertaining 5 grandkids, I am a  long-standing member of the Big Brothers of the East Bay and have remained active in my  little brother's life for the past 30 years. My favotite grandkid quote so far is "Papa, some of your hair is sort of all gone". My son Jack recently started working with me at Colliers.  I  enjoy  reading, traveling, swimming, and golfing when not spending time with family and friends. I presently reside in Walnut Creek with my wife  and best buddy  Paul.
