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.

PGIM Executive Forecasts Strong Multifamily Debt Market in 2018 | Dylan Simon -- Colliers International | Scoop.it
Dylan Simon's insight:

"And on an industry level, McRoberts is expecting another solid year in the world of multifamily, driven by millennials and baby boomers who continue to rent apartments.

At Microsoft, 'city' is in — even in the suburbs | Dylan Simon -- Colliers International | Scoop.it
Dylan Simon's insight:

Is Seattle’s Link light rail giving new life to the suburban office campus? Microsoft’s expansion in Redmond—the company’s “love letter” to our region in light of Amazon’s HQ2 search—is timed to the completion of Eastside light rail stations in 2023.

What’s the Verdict on Urban vs. Suburban CRE Investment?

What’s the Verdict on Urban vs. Suburban CRE Investment? | Dylan Simon -- Colliers International | Scoop.it
