Top Broker Honorees: Colliers International’s Bill Cooper

Colliers International’s Bill Cooper is an accomplished commercial real estate broker who helps a diverse group of clients, from start-ups to Fortune 100 companies, understand their business goals and implement successful strategies to meet and exceed those objectives. For the majority of his 15-year career, Cooper has advised clients with requirements in both western Washington and other markets across the globe.

The acceleration of the Puget Sound region, explosion of the tech market, and expanding global economy generated an even greater need for satellite locations for Washington-based companies, and the further growth of Cooper’s strategic real estate activities for multimarket portfolios.

Among his most notable transactions of the year was long-term client Edifecs’ extension and renewal of its 72,000-square-foot lease at Bellefield Office Park in Bellevue, WA. Cooper also represented Seattle-based, tax software firm Avalara in transactions totaling more than 120,000 square feet.
