TAMPA, Fla. (Oct. 16, 2012) – Nat Barganier, an award-winning commercial real estate industry professional, has joined Colliers International Tampa Bay as Managing Director, Investment Services, the company announced today.
Barganier previously served as Managing Director of Investment Sales at Newmark Grubb Knight Frank in Tampa Bay, where he was recognized as a Top Producer in 2010 and 2011. With more than 25 years in the commercial real estate industry, he has extensive relationships with special servicers, banks and private equity groups, along with deep contacts with institutional and private real estate owners.
