Vice President & Managing Broker
Jason Winton specializes in the sales and leasing of all commercial real estate asset classes (investment, development land, industrial, office, retail, recreational & apartment) in the Mid Vancouver Island region north of Victoria.
Jason joined Colliers in Vancouver in 1995. In 2003 he opened up a Colliers office in Nanaimo to help bring professional commercial real estate marketing and brokerage to the region and since that time has been one of the top brokers in the Mid Island region.
He has facilitated the sale and lease of over $700 Million Dollars in Assets since 2008 over a range of asset classes, including land, hotel, office, industrial, retail and multi-family assets, many of which were large scale and complex. His achievements are a result of his acute understanding of the transaction process, strong relationships with industry professionals, keen understanding of the Mid Vancouver Island market as well as undivided dedication to client goals and success.
Clients include private equity, institutional investors, developers, local and offshore investors/developers and regional, provincial & national tenants

“The acquisition of Metral Station Shopping Centre, saw a number of issues surface over the course of the due diligence that were not really vendor nor purchaser driven but that needed to be resolved. The brokers at Colliers were front and centre in coordinating the resolution of these issues and their efforts were over and above what is normally expected of brokers in the purchase and sale of a shopping centre. We have worked with Colliers before on other transactions and look forward to doing so again.” Metral Drive Holdings Corp.
