Colliers International Office Opening
Seattle-based Colliers International today announced its re-entry into the Austin commercial brokerage market, after a several-year hiatus. The new Austin presence will be anchored by three of the city's top office brokers: Marc Vanderslice, Doug Jones, and Volney Campbell. Formerly with HPI Corporate Services, the team will extend Colliers' full-service professional services platform to the area, offering all lines of commercial brokerage and consultation.
Vanderslice, Jones and Campbell bring nearly fifty years of brokerage experience to Colliers, consistently ranking among the top five brokers in the city, according to the Austin Business Journal. The team has worked together for almost 10 years and their clients include some of Austin's best-known success stories, such as SpareFoot, 21CT, Q2ebanking, MutualMobile, and Spredfast.
"As the companies we serve have grown, it became apparent that we needed a global platform that would allow us to advise our clients in markets outside Austin," explained Vanderslice. "Colliers' strong presence and expertise throughout the world made it an easy choice for us. We are excited to be part of such an exceptional organization".
"The team's experience growing their previous company into one of the most competitive in the city makes them a perfect fit for the entrepreneurial culture at Colliers. They'll be great representatives of the brand in Austin," said Patrick Duffy, President of Colliers in Houston.
Colliers International currently has Texas offices in Dallas and Houston, with more than 90 commercial real estate consultants and over 160 total professionals. The Dallas and Houston offices have robust capabilities in both research and marketing and will support the Austin office during their initial ramp up.
