Associate Vice President
Stephen began his career in commercial real estate in 2001 working for JJ Barnicke (later re-branded as DTZ) in Vancouver. For the first 5 years of his career he worked in the retail sector representing either Landlord or the tenant in all major retail nodes throughout Greater Vancouver. He transitioned his business in 2006 to specialize in Development and Investment sales and worked in that sector very successfully for the following 10 years. While representing either purchaser or vendor Stephen has worked with almost every major developer in the Greater Vancouver market at some point and has facilitated sales valued well over 300 Million Dollars. With a shift in family life, Stephen re-located with his wife and 3 children to Kelowna in 2017 and joined the Colliers team in the Okanagan.
Past clients have included private equity, institutional investors, developers, local and offshore investors/developers.. With Stephen's extensive lower mainland knowledge, experience, contacts and his continued and ongoing presence in the Vancouver market, he is an excellent bridge between markets.
