Christchurch and Tauranga offices recognised alongside Rising Star David Burley
Colliers International’s nationwide reach has been recognised with three accolades at the 2018 REINZ Awards for Excellence.
The agency won three of the five commercial property awards at last night’s ceremony at the Cordis Hotel in Auckland.
Colliers International’s Christchurch business won Medium Commercial and Industrial Office of the Year, while the Tauranga business won Small Commercial and Industrial Office of the Year.
Auckland Investment Sales Broker David Burley was awarded Commercial and Industrial Rising Star of the Year.
“This is the second year in a row that Colliers has won all three of these categories, which highlights our nationwide dominance in commercial property,” says Colliers International New Zealand CEO Mark Synnott.
“Our strong performance at the awards is testament to our hard work, innovation and trusted long-term relationships with our clients.”
Synnott says it was particularly pleasing to see Colliers International franchises dominate the Office of the Year awards.
CPS Partnership Limited, trading as Colliers International in Tauranga, is one of the longest-established Colliers-branded offices in New Zealand, having joined the network in 2002.
The team of six salespeople is led by Director Simon Clark, a leading Bay of Plenty commercial property broker.
The office specialises in commercial, industrial and retail property sales and leasing, with particular strengths in the fast-growing Tauriko industrial area and Tauranga’s CBD and city fringe.
South Island Commercial Limited, trading as Colliers International in Christchurch, has been a member of the Colliers network the longest, having joined the brand 26 years ago.
Led by two of New Zealand’s most successful brokers, Managing Director Hamish Doig and General Manager Mark Macauley, the team consists of 14 brokers and six support staff.
The team dominates Christchurch’s commercial property market and is consistently a top-performer amongst Colliers offices nationally.
Rising Star of the Year David Burley specialises in the sale and leasing of commercial property in central Auckland.
Prior to joining Colliers, David had nine years of professional experience as an investment banker, consultant and commercial lawyer.
He has quickly established himself as an expert in the city fringe areas of Parnell and Newmarket.
In addition to the three wins, Shoneet Chand of Colliers’ North Shore office was named a finalist in the Commercial and Industrial Salesperson of the Year category.
