Colliers International, a global commercial real estate company with offices in 62 countries, has opened the Colliers Valuation & Advisory Services Group (CIVAS) in Charleston.
Frank Hammond, president of Colliers International in Greenville, says that this service will provide “a wonderful enhancement of our services platform to our clients throughout the Upstate.”
Colliers is the largest third-party manager of commercial real estate in South Carolina with a portfolio exceeding 8 million square feet of office, industrial and retail properties.
CIVAS provides its clients expertise in the valuation of commercial properties with emphasis on financial analysis of income producing assets, including multi-family, hotel, office, industrial and retail properties in addition to land and subdivision valuation.
“Our valuation and advisory services are designed to deliver insight into a property’s fundamentals, its competitors and the overall market dynamics affecting value – now and in the future,” said Hammond.
Curtis (Curt) S. McCall Jr. will serve as the managing director of the Valuation & Advisory Services Group. McCall brings 25 years of experience in the real estate field as an investor, owner, appraiser and developer.
Jerry Gisclair, regional managing director, said “the addition of Charleston and the team’s expertise in South Carolina is a very important component of our growth in the Southeast. The area is strategic with the economic growth associated with the expanding port development and related manufacturing companies throughout the Carolinas.”
