Investa recently appointed Colliers to market a Centennial Plaza from its balance sheet.  We chose Colliers because we were tired of the standard or traditional approaches being peddled by the Australian Real estate community.  In selecting Colliers, we were impressed firstly by the innovative and entrepreneurial approach of Vince Kernahan and secondly, by the pairing of two industry stalwarts, James Quigley and James Barber.  The combination of these three individuals, with the support of John Marasco and CEO, John Kenny, gave Investa great confidence in the Colliers brand.  We have been able to tap into Colliers’ transactions, research and valuation departments to ensure that we, as a vendor, have access to the widest range of market data and buyers.  Given the complexity of modern capital markets, we believe Colliers have proven themselves to be the pre-eminent institutional sales team.
