About

Professional Summary

As a senior executive vice president with Colliers International, I lead the Cooke Multifamily Team—one of the top multifamily teams in the nation. Our team members are Brad Cooke, Chris Roach, Matt Roach, Teresa Lowery, Ron Cameron, Thomas Brophy, Nicholas Solo, Aimee Healy and Kellyanne Kennedy.

With more than 30 years of experience specializing in multifamily, I provide the market insight clients use in their investment decisions. My primary focus is my relationship with clients. I understand the importance of every step from evaluation to marketing, qualifying the buyer, negotiations, due diligence, financing and closing; and am involved in every aspect of the transaction from start to finish. Through a hands-on personal approach, I provide unmatched service to my clients.

The ability to maximize value, minimize risk and accelerate velocity for clients is the driving force behind all my decisions. I leverage my knowledge and relationships for the benefit of my team’s institutional and large private capital clients.

In addition to my multifamily brokerage business, I served as Interim Manager and Designated Broker for Colliers in Greater Phoenix in 2005. From global conferences in Shanghai to daily interactions with more than 150 brokers and staff, I helped lead Greater Phoenix to become one of the top Colliers’ offices worldwide.

My brokerage career started in multifamily with an emphasis on development, property assemblage, zoning and construction. Early in my career, to accommodate the needs of clients, I started my own commercial real estate brokerage and mortgage broker firm and was the sole proprietor of these companies for 10 years. I was also the partner of Blue Ridge Park Business Park, where I assembled, zoned and planned the largest business park in Raleigh, North Carolina.

“In the end, this is a people business—not just a transaction business. Cindy has the best relationships with the active buyers and sellers in multlifamily real estate in the marketplace.

“Cindy was our lead broker for the sale of 5,178 units for $427.5 million which closed on June 1, 2007. She tenaciously followed the due diligence process on the 12 properties from beginning to end. When she sensed even the slightest bump in the road, she immediately attended to it. Cindy is the hardest working broker I have worked with in my 35 years in the apartment business and her results show it.”—Jerry Finney, Manager of Bascom Arizona Ventures, LLC

“Tough and also trustworthy negotiators, we’ve been on both sides of the fence with Cindy and her team—I have the utmost respect for their professionalism. Over the course of the past two years, Colliers has represented Hamilton Zanze and Company handling over 2,000 units and I can truly say her team has either met or exceeded our expectations. We congratulate them on their good work and look forward to working with them again.”—Kurt Houtkooper, Partner and Chief Investment Officer, Hamilton Zanze & Co.
