Professional Summary

I am a specialist in the leasing and sale of office properties, representing both tenants and landlords. As a senior vice president with Colliers International, I provide a full range of commercial real estate services, developing strategies and identifying opportunities that align with each client's business objectives. I am focused on providing exceptional service and strategic solutions.

With a deep understanding of the subtleties of the market, I use my knowledge and expertise to guide clients towards informed and strategic real estate decisions, while minimizing risk and maximizing value. Clients select me to be their strategic partner to help advance their business objectives through market knowledge, specialized expertise and a comprehensive portfolio of commercial real estate services.

I support office tenants by helping them select the ideal space that fulfils their real estate and business requirements. Through focused lease negotiations, I engineer a lease that provides a business with maximum flexibility and security. A tenant’s growth over time is supported—not constrained—by their physical space. Recognizing a lease is often the second-greatest expenditure for a business after payroll, I keep my tenants’ financial objectives in the forefront.

Landlords benefit from effective property positioning and leasing strategies designed to secure the right tenants, while building value. Whether Class A space in a downtown high-rise, suburban office development or historical building, I provide guidance to lease, manage and market office space. I serve as a single point of accountability and collaborate with Colliers specialists in a variety of service areas at each stage of the property ownership cycle.

As a skilled negotiator, I quickly grasp the challenge in any situation and identify and implement solutions. I am extremely focused, with an instinctive ability to understand and target the needs of my clients. Committed to being highly accessible, accountable and providing superior service, my goal is to always exceed my clients’ expectations.

With more than 16 years of commercial real estate experience, I have represented a wide variety of tenant and landlord clients. I ensure my clients have the tools and resources necessary to make educated commercial real estate decisions.

As an active member of Arizona Commercial Real Estate Women (AZCREW), I serve on the Board of Directors and as Programs Committee Chair. I am also a member of CoreNet Global.

“When we first met, I had been through two or three rounds of negotiations directly with the landlord and decided that I should involve the experts. As a result of your involvement as HSl's agent, we had a bottom line savings of $259,000, a changed base year of operating expenses, a return of our security deposit and other concessions we had not considered. The best part about this process was that your services as our agent had no cost to us. In addition to the cost benefits, you enabled me to preserve our most precious commodity—my time. I was able to focus on what I do best and let you do what you do best and I couldn’t be happier with the results.” —Cyndi Shepley, General Manager & VP – HSI a division of MICROS

“Aspen Systems engaged the services of Lindsey Carlson at Colliers to relocate our office. From the start, Lindsey was very professional and extremely competent. One of her greatest assets is the degree of efficiency that she delays in her service. The properties that we were shown precisely fit the parameters we had given her. Finding the appropriate property was our primary concern, but negotiation of a good transaction was certainly an important factor. In this area, Lindsey excelled. We were very pleased with the outcome and the overall experience. She has won our trust and confidence. It is with enthusiasm that I confidently recommend her services. I would not even consider looking elsewhere for any future real estate requirements.” —Lisa Lawrence, President/CEO, Aspen Systems
