Under Dylan’s leadership, Colliers was ranked the No. 1 brokerage firm in the United States (2011–2012) by Commercial Property Executive magazine, and The Lipsey Company’s annual survey listed the Colliers brand as the second-most recognized in the world. In 2016, Dylan was recognized as one of Real Estate Forum magazine's ELITE 70.
