Associate Vice President | Personal Real Estate Corporation
I have worked in Commercial Real Estate for over 16 years, all with Colliers International. I began my career working in our Vancouver office, but chose to move to Victoria and found great happiness and achievements here. I have successfully completed many investment and leasing transactions, working on both sides of the transaction. My extensive experiencing in leasing, representing both landlords and tenants, enables me to leverage that knowledge to provide sound advice for my investment clients as well. My paramount focus is to understand my client's requirements and provide them honest and trustworthy advice.
My experience has been varied in that I began as Project Coordinator in the Vancouver Brokerage Division, then spent time as a Business Analyst within our corporate IT group melding business requirements with IT development, and finally as a Commercial Real Estate Agent in Victoria, BC. The evolution of my real estate career has allowed me to understand and appreciate many aspects of commercial real estate and business. This carries through in my approach to business and putting my clients' needs first.

"The personable service from Colliers, specifically from the agent that helped us, was highly professional, very speedy, willing, able to help and support our business needs and exceed expectations." LlamaZOO.
“We have worked with other agents in the past with other companies. Anna in specific was excellent. She catered to our needs, found us the right place that works for us which was awesome and we are very happy and the business is doing good now.” Victoria Courtnall, Spinco.
"In 2014, Anthem’s Market Square asset in Downtown Victoria was suffering from chronic vacancy due to a sluggish market and stale leasing practises. We decided to bring in a new listing agent and selected Anna after interviewing a number of options. Through a combination of her intimate market knowledge and deal savvy, unrelenting approach to prospecting, and most importantly, her contagious and sincere enthusiasm for the people and work around her, she not only transformed Market Square into a fully occupied, vibrant hub for emerging and established Victoria companies, but quickly became an essential part of the Anthem team." Jordan Carlson, Anthem Properties
