For the second consecutive year, Andrew H. Roos was the top producing professional for Colliers International Tri-State.
Having completed approximately two million square feet of transactions since the beginning of 2010, representing both tenants and landlords, Roos also ranks among the organization’s top producing brokers globally.
As principal and vice chairman of the Tri-State operations, Roos completed more than 540,000 s/f of New York City metro-region real estate transactions last year alone.
Among others, he represented the United Nations on multiple transactions, and in partnership with Colliers International Tri-State president Michael T. Cohen, he arranged an 85,000 s/f lease at 685 Third Avenue on behalf of accounting firm Marks Paneth & Shron.
Throughout his career, Roos has been associated with the development, sale or repositioning of more than $1 billion of real estate transactions and the leasing of more than 40 million square feet of property.
Some of his major clients include the U.N. and many of its agencies, including the United National Development Programme, the United Nations Population Fund and the United Nations Joint Staff Pension Fund.
Major corporate clients have included the Bank of New York, Xerox and DuPont along with various professional services concerns.
“Andy Roos has risen to the top of his profession through a combination of sophisticated market knowledge, creative thinking and a steely resolve,” said Michael T. Cohen.
“He has achieved his greatest success to date in one of the most challenging real estate markets in recent history. Andy is also a dear friend. Sharing in his success is a joy to me both personally and professionally.”
“Completing two million square feet of real estate transactions over the past two years is a truly remarkable accomplishment, especially in today’s environment,” said Joseph Caridi, COO of the Tri-State Region.
“Andy continually delivers best-in-class service to his clients and defines what it means to be a professional. He represents the very best Colliers International has to offer.”
