Colin began his career with Avison Young in 2000 and has since become a Principal with the company. Colin’s work ethic and desire to deliver excellent client service has made him one of the top industrial brokers in greater Edmonton. Colin is a member of Avison Young’s Circle of Excellence (a distinction given to the top performers in North America).
Priding himself on an ability to combine a white collar education (BComm, University of Alberta) with a blue collar background (working in Northern Alberta’s oilfield), Colin enjoys finding solutions for his client’s real estate requirements with an understanding of how the work in the field translates into specific requirements for the facility. Having a keen eye for recognizing opportunities and a knack for delivering forthright, no-nonsense advice to his clients are some of the keys to Colin’s success.
Some of his more notable recent transactions include the sale of 150 acres to MT Investments, a 90,000 sf renewal acting for Shale Inland (Polar Pipe), 31,000 sf design build for Cameron Canada, a 60 acre land lease for KBR, DiCorp Properties (13 acres), FGG Inspections (9,389 sf on 0.87 acres), BGE Service and Supply (85,000 sf), Carillion Canada (8 separate land parcels) Brytex (50,000 sf on 21 acres), Custom Truck Parts (60,000 sf) Rosedale Transport (45,000 sf), CWS Logistics (63,000 sf) Great Western Containers (28,000 sf), Lonkar (19,000 sf on 6.5 acres), Dover Canada (124,000 sf) Dynamex Courier (32,000 sf) CoLinx (66,000 sf), Schlumberger Canada (multiple transactions), Sauder Industries (77,591 sf), CoLinx (42,000 sf) and Hunting Titan.
Being a father (to twin boys) has kept Colin busy outside the office. He enjoys spending time with family and friends and is always available to lend a hand to fundraising events for institutes like Norquest College and The Support Network.
