The experienced Tampa- and Atlanta-based team will focus on the sale of marinas and leisure properties nationally
Tampa, Fla. (Jan. 19, 2018) – Colliers International has added an experienced leisure properties investment sales team to focus on the sale of marinas, resorts and leisure properties nationwide. The Leisure Property Advisors team includes Matt Putnam, Managing Director, and Dan Grovatt, Director, who are based in Colliers’ Tampa office, and Andrew Cantor, Managing Director, who is based in Colliers’ Atlanta office.
The team joins Colliers from a national commercial real estate brokerage firm where they specialized in handling transactions involving marina, golf and resort properties across the nation. In the last two years alone, the group has sold twenty marinas and other leisure properties in the United States and Canada. Noteworthy recent sales include: a 5-marina portfolio on behalf of a major pension fund, Lazy Days Marina (Lake Lanier, GA), Blue Pelican Marina (Hernando Beach, FL), Sailing Emporium (Rock Hall, MD), and LaPrade’s Marina (Lake Burton, GA).
“We are very pleased that this team has decided to join the Colliers platform. They bring with them industry leading market knowledge and unmatched transaction expertise within the marina asset class. Colliers has had great success globally in growing specialty practice areas,” said Ryan Kratz, President of Colliers International Florida. “We anticipate the same success with the Marina and Leisure Properties practice area. In attracting three of the industry’s top professionals, we now have the expertise to help buyers and sellers of marina and resort properties nationwide.”
With the Colliers International marina sales team based in the United Kingdom serving Europe, as well as the Unique Properties team based in Canada, and now this US-based team, Colliers International will be the pre-eminent marina investment sales platform across multiple countries.
The team will be an exhibitor at the International Marina & Boatyard Conference (IMBC) on January 31, 2018 – February 2, 2018 in New Orleans, Louisiana, located in booth #202.
