Robert Rohrer, Jr.
Managing Director | New Hampshire
As Managing Director and Principal of Colliers’ New Hampshire offices, my responsibilities include managing the day-to-day operations of our firm and its continued growth and position within our marketplace. In this role, my primary goal is to provide a working environment that allows our brokers and staff to deliver to our clients the highest level of service available in our industry.
One way to meet the above goal is to “practice what I preach” by advocating for my clients to the best of my ability. That means putting my 25+ years of experience - including my understanding of the business, the people, and the market - to work on every assignment I undertake.
One of the great things about the commercial real estate industry is that no two deals are the same. I enjoy the challenge of being involved with complex, multi-layered projects that require me to continually build upon my understanding of the business. Strategizing and solving a real “game-changer” for a client is my favorite part of what I do. I am particularly interested in working on investment opportunities, development and redevelopment projects, and with assisting industrial and office users in finding the perfect real estate solutions for their business plan.
I am fortunate to work with a group of professionals who complement my knowledge of commercial real estate so that, working collaboratively, we are able to provide informed and innovative real estate solutions. This team approach means we work quickly and efficiently on a variety of assignments at any given time.
Prior to my commercial real estate career, I worked in Sales for Xerox Corp. and was an attorney (still licensed, but not practicing).

“I have been involved in many real estate transactions over the past 10 years, some complex and some not. Bob Rohrer and his Colliers team have been a valuable resource to me when I needed commercial real estate expertise. His creativity, persistence and ability to make deals happen have proved beneficial to my company/ dealerships.
Not only do I feel confident in Bob’s ability to represent my company but I also feel that he makes me a priority and puts my interest first. I highly recommend Bob and Colliers to you and know that you will be pleased with the service you receive.”
H. Andy Crews
“Bob Rohrer, from the Colliers International's Manchester, NH office, approached me with a unique opportunity a few years back. He had a tenant set to lease about half a 227,000 SF, vacant industrial building in Nashua.
Although a complex deal, which included attaining State-backed bond funding, Bob and his team assisted us in making the transaction work. Liberty Companies then hired Colliers to lease the balance of the space. Once accomplished, Bob and the Colliers’ Boston-based institutional investment team assisted Liberty in the sale of the asset.
Bob’s creative 'out-of-the-box' thinking, along with the team’s expertise were instrumental in helping Liberty attain its goals relative to this asset. I highly recommend Bob and the Colliers team for any of your commercial real estate needs.”
Mohsin Amiji, CEO
“Here we are on April 1 and I am sitting in my office at 20 Executive Drive! I want to thank you, Bob, for all your help as we have gone through the purchase and refit of the building. I know back in December when we first met, the timeline we laid out for you seemed crazy, but we did it. Thank you for hanging in there with us. Without your help, this journey would not have had such a happy ending.”
Richard J. Brownstein, Principal
Innovative Products & Equipment, Inc.
"As an attorney and business advisor for the past 30 years, I have worked with many real estate professionals in a variety of complex transactions. I would put Bob Rohrer at the absolute top of that list, and would not hesitate to work with him again.
Bob’s knowledge of the New Hampshire market, his integrity, intellect, and creativity in approaching a very challenging deal brought a level of expertise to our team that was invaluable. Thanks to Bob’s sound advice and hard work, we were able to structure and close a very successful deal for our client.
I would give Bob Rohrer my highest recommendation for any commercial real estate deal, and we were extremely fortunate to have him on our team."
