Dylan Simon -- Colliers International
I specialize in the sale of apartment buildings in Seattle and the greater Puget Sound region. I focus on the sale of both apartment buildings and developable land ranging from $3M to $100M. I am passionate about real estate investment and development, economics, technology and urbanism. Through brokerage I assist apartment investors and developers in achieving the highest possible levels of return and build an advisory relationship that lasts ownership life-cycles instead of just a transaction.

Amazon may have a different target for acquisition--another local giant: Costco.
