Colleen Austin joined the Victoria and Vancouver Island Cushman & Wakefield team as a sales and leasing associate in May 2013. Colleen has quickly established herself with major landlords and tenants as a specialist in the office leasing market, both downtown and suburban Victoria. She believes keys to success are being proactive when on the hunt for tenants, communicating well and ensuring clients’ needs are understood, and working hard.
Colleen comes from a background in the commercial furniture industry where she assisted large and small organizations to optimize their work environment using clever furniture solutions and efficient space planning. This familiarity with the design and construction of the office environment has been a significant value-add to her clients in real estate. Colleen is dedicated to being a thorough, responsive and knowledgeable asset to any organization she represents.
Colleen spent 6 years in the UK selling office furniture solutions in London, where she became the top producing sales person in 2007 and 2008. She returned to Victoria in 2009 with an new appreciation for this amazing city and all Vancouver Island has to offer, She now lives happily in Fairfield with her husband, who is a senior executive at a local tech company, and her two young boys.
