About

Professional Summary

As a vice president with Colliers in Greater Phoenix, I specialize in tenant and landlord representation. My comprehensive commercial real estate experience includes working with national corporate clients, and single- and multi-location tenants. My extensive industry network and access to a wide range of market resources allows me to provide clients with critical information to address their commercial real estate requirements.

Taking a proactive approach, I quickly respond to client requests and react to market trends. In partnership with Lindsey Carlson, vice president, our team focuses on providing exceptional service and strategic solutions to our clients.

I pride myself on being a collaborative partner and actively listening to my clients. As an extension of each client's team, I guide them through the real estate process and develop strategies to improve business functions and minimize risk exposure.

With more than 18 years of experience, I have an impressive background in commercial real estate, which includes corporate real estate, green building and sustainability initiatives, and an extensive background in market research and property marketing.

Prior to rejoining Colliers, I was director of research and marketing for the Southwest Region of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank. In that role, I directed research, mapping and marketing for both brokerage and property management in the Phoenix, Austin, Houston, Dallas, Portland, Seattle and Las Vegas offices.

Previously, I was with Colliers from 2004 to 2009, and a member of Colliers' Corporate Solutions team.

Testimonials:

"Coming into a new market is a difficult proposition, especially when you know little about that market. CKR Interactive moved a branch into Phoenix with much help and hand holding from Ruth. She went out of her way to find us office space that fit our needs. I would highly recommend Ruth when you are looking for commercial real estate."

"Ruth acted as my tenant representative and did an outstanding job. First and foremost, I always felt the needs of my company were Ruth's primary concern. Ruth spent the time necessary to understand my company and our needs in leasing commercial real estate. She offers a unique combination of expertise and first-rate customer service that is becoming a rarity in today's marketplace."

"I have had the pleasure to work with Ruth on some special projects over the past year. Her high levels of organization and responsiveness has made her an asset to our project teams, as well as the various industry organizations she is involved with. Her network is expansive, and she is able to quickly draw on her resources to gather information as needed to get the job done."

"Ruth has a strong commitment to sustainability, and has aligned herself to be a go-to source through Colliers and her involvement with the Arizona Chapter of the US Green Building Council (USGBC), proving to be one of the best sources of sustainability in real estate."
