Market-leading expertise and strategies
Our clients' success is our priority
“Clients are looking for great service and results—and that’s what we deliver.”—Bob Mulhern, senior managing director.
Good customer service is fundamental; however, we aspire to create memorable experiences.
From Fortune 500 brands and global institutional investors to family-owned businesses and private investors, we represent dynamic clients who seek us out for our expertise and unique attention to the overall client experience.
We forge long-term client relationships based on mutual trust and respect and reinforced by results that exceed our clients’ expectations.
By understanding and anticipating our clients' needs, we strive to make real estate a competitive business advantage and a strong financial asset.
Our clients’ success is not only our focus—it's our priority.
Strategic partnership approach
Colliers serves as a strategic partner to align our clients’ real estate and business objectives, while safeguarding their interests.

We provide a single point of contact and collaborate with specialists across our comprehensive portfolio of services to fulfill our clients' requirements.
As a strategic partner, we raise the bar in professional services, both in the business outcomes achieved and the personal experience delivered.
The foundation of our service is the strength and depth of our local specialists, who collaborate to offer market-leading expertise and an innovative approach to meet our clients’ needs.
Innovation and collaboration
Property marketing should be more than a laundry list of marketing tactics. All commercial real estate types need to make a statement beyond the steel in elevators. An inspired space speaks volumes about the company's identity and the culture it fosters.
Our team developed a go-to-market system we refer to as the ad agency approach to branding. We are much more than a traditional marketing department. We are marketers and creatives who provide solutions to help increase brand visibility and generate more leads.
Our approach blends the insight and imagination of incredible people who see endless possibilities. At Colliers, we don’t follow the market—we lead it. Our creative marketing team takes advantage of comprehensive tools and resources, with digital marketing being a key element, to create high-quality content that tells a story.

Community service comes from the heart, and we are proud to be an organization of people who show they have heart every day in every way.
