As a commercial realtor at Colliers International, my focus is landlord/seller representation in the office, industrial, and land sectors. My formal training and professional career as a commercial landscape architect has provided me with a confident understanding in what lies under our work: the land itself. With that understanding, I can deliver the selling points and the potential of a property to tenant/buyer prospects.
My background in understanding site feasibility, permitting, and entitlement requirements for commercial land development has proved to be a competitive advantage for both seller and developer clients.
My experience is leveraged by the team approach that Colliers implements on our assignments. I feel fortunate to work with other knowledgeable professionals who complement my experience and allow us to deliver best in class service.
I am grateful to be working and living in the beautiful seacoast area of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, with my wife and two beach loving children. I am an associate broker in New Hampshire and Maine, as well as a licensed landscape architect in Maine (not practicing).
After building my professional career for 15 years as a commercial landscape architect in Boston, Massachusetts, and Portsmouth, New Hampshire, I shifted my focus from commercial real estate design to commercial real estate brokerage.

“If you are looking for commercial space in the Seacoast that is perfect for your business, Andy Ward at Colliers will really work to help you find the perfect location.
We are chiropractors and moved from Seattle to Portsmouth. Andy worked with us while we commuted and even when we were on vacation abroad. When we looked at spaces, he was focused and asked the right questions.
He found us the perfect space and really went above and beyond. Even now, a year later, Andy continues to check in.
We highly recommend Andy to any business owner looking for new space.”

"We engaged Colliers International to search for office space in Portsmouth, NH and Andrew Ward took the assignment. Andy listened closely to our requirements, took growth into account and arranged several options for us to visit. Once the property of choice was selected, his advice as a Tenant agent was invaluable.
Andy Ward is a knowledgeable and courteous professional, one that we could easily recommend to anyone looking for commercial property in the Seacoast area!”
Paula Marchio, Director, N.A. Sales
"We chose Andrew Ward of Colliers International to market and sell our commercial property on Lafayette Road In North Hampton, NH. While the location on Route 1 was excellent, the former owner had neglected to keep up with maintenance creating a more challenging sale.
Once the property was evaluated with a list of comparable properties established, a value was set and Andrew put together an excellent marketing package. He had a very appropriate, highly visible sign installed. The recommendations he made in reference to positioning the property were totally appropriate. He proactively marketed the property, directly outreaching prospects and kept us informed of all activity.
Throughout the entire timeframe, we felt we were in very capable hands. He successfully coordinated the necessary inspections keeping track of key dates and kept the process rolling.
Andrew developed a high activity level and created a multiple offer situation. This yielded the highest possible price with terms that met our needs.
We highly recommend Andrew to anyone searching for a commercial realtor to sell property. He works in a very professional manner and has a wonderful personality to go with that."
