Morgan Relyea Colt

Executive Director


As an Executive Director within Cushman & Wakefield’s Tenant Advisory group, Morgan Colt represents tenants in the acquisition and disposition of office space, with a focus on transactions that include leases, expansions, renewals/extensions, subleasing, built-to-suits, sales and sale/leasebacks. Taking into consideration her clients’ long- and short-term objectives, with proper attention to “exit strategy,” Morgan develops strategic plans based on current and future market conditions, identifying cost savings and flexibility using qualitative site analysis and detailed financial analyses, and by maximizing negotiation leverage.

Morgan has seven years of tenant representation experience at Cushman & Wakefield, after joining the firm in its Client Services Group. In this role, she was responsible for surveying markets and space opportunities for clients, which allowed her the opportunity to develop an in-depth understanding of the Houston office space market. She transitioned into brokerage and quickly worked her way up to Executive Director, applying her extensive marketing and research expertise and tactical negotiating skills to assist her clients in making informed and objective decisions on their office space needs.
