With a core understanding in financial analysis, I brought my expertise and passion for learning to a senior Industrial Brokerage team at Colliers, specializing in the Fraser Valley. My core competencies include prospecting, marketing coordination, underwriting, market research, and land valuation. Through my analytical background, I am able to provide unparalleled solutions to multi-faceted real estate and business challenges that my clients face.
I initially joined Colliers International as a Real Estate Financial Analyst, providing support for the Industrial, Investment, Office and Retail divisions. I delivered detailed and accurate financial analysis through careful due diligence, market research and understanding of local planning policies. I was also responsible for publishing the LandShare Report. My specialties are the valuation and underwriting of income producing properties and sites with redevelopment potential.

Chris rejoined Colliers at the beginning of 2008, after five years as Director of Industrial Development for The Beedie Group, one of the largest and most successful development companies in Western Canada. Since returning to Colliers, he has been one of the top brokers in the Metro Vancouver Market.
Chris initially joined the real estate industry in 1994 and was one of the top industrial brokers in Metro Vancouver prior to leaving Colliers in 2002. During his tenure, Chris achieved a position amongst the Top 50 Commercial Realtors in Colliers Canada for production for consecutive years in 2000, 2001 and 2002.
As an Executive Vice President, Chris is highly focused and passionate about providing creative real estate solutions for companies in the industrial sector. Although based in Vancouver, his client base extends to major real estate markets across Canada and the U.S.
After 25 years in the industry, his role has evolved to where his focus is on becoming a trusted resource rather than a transaction centric service provider. Whether it be simply providing market intelligence on a regular basis or assisting with validating long-term business strategies, Chris is committed in being responsive and fully accountable over the course of any assignment.
Chris' experience at The Beedie Group is highly unique, where he was responsible on providing an “insider’s” perspective on all aspects of development, construction and analysis of income producing real estate assets.
During his tenure at The Beedie Group, Chris completed 47 design build projects totaling over 1.5million square feet and was involved in every key aspect of the design and construction process. Chris’ involvement during the site acquisition process included preliminary conceptual design and feasibility, coordination of cost estimates, as well as final contract negotiations and transaction structures. Chris also consulted on the renewal of major tenants within The Beedie portfolio, which had totaled over 6million square feet.
