How Team Support and Mentorship Contributed to Nicole Tran’s Rising Star Award Win

Spirit of Colliers Rising Star Award Hero

Our Spirit of Colliers Awards celebration continues! Today, we’re featuring our Rising Star Award category and highlighting one of this year’s winners. The Rising Star Award recognizes individuals with less than three years’ experience working in the commercial real estate sector who embrace change and think differently, demonstrating they have the capability to lead our industry into the future.

Nicole Tran originally joined Colliers as a co-op student and has now been with the company for two years as a permanent Property Accountant in our Real Estate Management Services team. As she works toward her designation under Colliers’ CPA practical experience program, Nicole continues to develop upon her strong technical skills and grow her portfolio, with strong potential to advance into a leadership role in the future. “We are very lucky to have brought Nicole back as a permanent employee and look forward to her continued growth at Colliers,” says Anna Wong, Controller, Real Estate Management Services.

We asked Nicole how her team and colleagues have enabled her to win this award: “My team has been incredibly supportive of my growth as a property accountant, providing encouragement through mentorship and being approachable when I have questions. I am grateful for the support I’ve received to excel within my role and that these characteristics are being recognized by my peers.” We also asked her how this award may have reaffirmed her future personal and professional goals, and she told us, “Winning this award reassures me and gives me confidence that I am taking the right steps to develop my career as a property accountant and CPA. It also serves as a reminder that my colleagues believe in my professional capabilities, and my abilities as a person, and that motivates me to continuously improve.”

At Colliers, it is our culture that differentiates us. A culture built by people and teams who go above and beyond every day. Launched in 2021, the Spirit of Colliers Awards recognizes the outstanding efforts and achievements of Colliers teams and professionals who demonstrate our values and bring our culture to life. Our professionals are encouraged to nominate teams or individuals who demonstrate one or more of Colliers' values to accelerate the success of our clients, colleagues, and communities.
