At Colliers, we are a long-term partner, looking beyond immediate needs to build and grow our clients’ businesses.

What does it mean to invest in relationships for David Kotansky, Colliers’ co-head of Capital Markets, USA? David builds relationships with clients that go beyond business. He works to understand how they operate and their core objectives to find the right solutions. As someone who truly believes in getting to know clients as people, he hosts an annual overnight fishing trip for clients and fellow brokers where cell phones and work-related conversation is off limits! By gaining trust and confidence on a personal level, David has generated strong, long-term relationships with his clients and peers. Additionally, David invests in relationships by donating his time on several boards, including Portland State University where he hopes to encourage the next generation to consider commercial real estate as a career.

This series highlights stories from Colliers U.S. professionals that exemplify our values, displaying who we are, what we do and how we are different in order to maximize the potential of property to accelerate the success of our clients and our people.
