Will Smith joined the Colliers International team in August of 2014. Will’s focus is tenant and landlord representation for industrial properties and investment sales. With over five years of experience with Colliers Nashville, Will has had the opportunity to work with countless owners and occupiers in the greater Middle Tennessee area, facilitating lease and sale transactions and acting as a trusted advisor for their respective or prospective real estate portfolios and lease holdings. His listing portfolio has included properties totaling over 2 million square feet in the Nashville market ranging from single tenant industrial buildings to greater than 500,000 SF distribution centers.
Will’s real estate career began after several years practicing as a CPA, where he learned valuable analytical tools and the importance of concise and effective reporting, which have been instrumental in his success in the commercial real estate profession. As a native to Nashville, he has experienced the successes and challenges of the city’s tremendous growth first hand and has a strong confidence in his market knowledge and ability to identify market deals for his clients.
Today’s real estate investors, owners, and occupiers rely on a broker’s ability to not only build and maintain relationships with others in the industry but to do so by acting as a market leader in knowledge of every aspect of the industrial landscape.
Will’s goal is to help his clients not only sell, purchase or lease properties, but to do so in a manner that is most beneficial to their bottom line and in line with their long-term strategic initiative, by providing relevant and specific information to their requirement.
Since starting his real estate career in 2014, Will has negotiated transactions that exceeded 1.5 million square feet, and had a combined consideration in excess of $50 million dollars. Some notable clients include CTDI, Jeni’s Ice Cream, Lennox, Builder Supply Source, Guardian Building Products, and Fortress Investment Group. Will earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (2011) and a Masters in Accounting (2012) from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. Furthermore, he has been trained in one of the most utilized underwriting software programs in real estate, Argus Enterprise. Will is actively working toward both CCIM and SIOR designations.
