I am the Senior Vice President and Market Leader of the Colliers International office in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. My background in commercial real estate started over 40 years ago and for the past 35 years I have specialized in occupier services, corporate solutions and I haver represented law firms in almost one million square feet of transactions.
I collaborate with my clients and establish a real estate needs assessment program. This program organizes the client's real estate portfolio, which in turn, helps lower their real estate operating expenses.
I have worked in the comercial real estate field for over ten years. My focus is primarly Occupier Services and representing office tenants through the leasing process. As part of my role, I also conduct market research and provide insight for quarterly market reports. I pride myself on my communication skills and ability to work for the tenant’s best interest. My detailed approach and strong work ethic has given numerous clients confidence throughout their real estate transactions. Prioir to joining Colliers International | Pittsburgh, I was an Associate Vice President at Cushman & Wakefield | Grant Street Associates.

"Colliers was invaluable in helping us with our office relocation. They were extremely professional, personable and dependable in all of our interactions. Edward Lawrence and the team helped us to find a great fit for our new space, providing helpful information and resources along the way. I would not consider another move without Colliers help."

"Edward and Paul worked with Venture Outdoors over the course of nearly two years as we investigated, researched and analyzed a myriad of potential space solutions. End result, we are now in a great space that meets our current and future needs. Along the way I would also consider them as having been a guide, an advocate, a confidant and an indispensable resource.

"Colliers helped Synergy Media Group locate and negotiate leased office space. We touched base with each other multiple times almost every other day for two months. Our Colliers' team answered their phone 95% of the time and on the times they did not, they called us back within 15 minutes. The Colliers team is an efficient work horse who really cares about their clients. I would recommend them to any company looking for commercial office space."
