Coldwell Banker Commercial Benchmark

Colin is the President of Coldwell Banker Commercial Benchmark and the managing Broker. Colin joined Coldwell Banker with 18 years of retail experience specializing in the sporting goods industry. He manages an office of 15 agents in Jacksonville and 8 agents in Ormond Beach that specialize in all aspects of commercial real estate. Colin, with his team of retail professionals, has provided his clients with numerous site selection and tenant representation services throughout Jacksonville, the state of Florida and the United States. His team has closed transactions in Florida, North Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Texas, Arizona, Indiana, Michigan, Nevada, Missouri, Ohio, and South Carolina using the Coldwell Banker Commercial network affiliation. Colin has opened numerous national retail chain stores, preformed site selection work for a regional climate controlled storage company and opened several sites for plasma collection related to the pharmaceutical industry. During the recession years of 2008 to 2012, he has specialized in the REO arena and assisted 4 banks in the disposition of their REO portfolio and understands how to work with the banks to preserve their capital related to their REO portfolio. As a result, due to the downturn in the economy, Colin has aggressively marketed and filled several large retail and office properties whose occupancy rate had dropped below 35%. Because of his strategy, he raised the occupancy levels to above 90 % in each location. This was done by instituting an aggressive marketing program that included aggressively marketing to nearby tenants to help fill the vacant space.
