Cassidy Turley
Cassidy Turley is a privately owned commercial real estate services firm. It was launched on March 1, 2010 with the unification of nine regional firms across the U.S. Cassidy Turley has approximately 3,400 employees in 60 national offices and manages a property portfolio of 455 million square feet. In 2010, the firm completed transactions valued at $18 billion.


In 2008, four firms—Colliers Turley Martin Tucker in the Central U.S.; Colliers Pinkard in Baltimore, Raleigh and Charlotte; Cassidy & Pinkard Colliers in Washington, DC; and Colliers ABR in New York City—merged to form a joint holding company. The four firms, part of the Colliers International network, continued to operate under their names and brands in each market, but consolidated leadership, with Mark Burkhart of Colliers Turley Martin Tucker becoming CEO of the holding company.

In early 2010, FirstService Corp., the parent company of Colliers International, declared that Colliers and FirstService Real Estate Advisors would merge their U.S. and global operations. At the same time, the holding company of Colliers Turley Martin Tucker, Colliers Pinkard, Cassidy & Pinkard Colliers and Colliers ABR – along with Colliers Houston & Co. of New Jersey, NAI affiliate BT Commercial in Northern California, Grubb & Ellis BRE Commercial firms in San Diego and Phoenix – formed a new national company under the brand of Cassidy Turley. Soon after, CPS CORFAC in Santa Clara, CA announced it too would join Cassidy Turley as Cassidy Turley CPS.

Through the rest of 2010 and into 2011 Cassidy Turley grew, adding offices in Milwaukee, WI Denver, CO, Louisville, KY and Dallas and Houston, TX. The firm also formed an international partnership with GVA to provide services outside the U.S.

In September 2011, Cassidy Turley acquired the brokerage and property management business lines of Carter, a full-service commercial real estate services firm headquartered in Atlanta. Cassidy Turley also acquired FHO Partners, a commercial real estate brokerage and advisory firm in Boston.
