The CoStar Group (NASDAQ:CSGP) individually recognized five MacKenzie associates this week as 2008 CoStar Power Brokers; Tom Fidler, John Harrington, Debbie Haney, and John Schultz for retail leasing activity, and Scott Wimbrow, SIOR, for office leasing activity.
The annual award distinguishes the “best of the best” in commercial real estate by spotlighting brokers who closed the highest transaction volumes in commercial property sales or leases for the year.
“CoStar Group is very proud to recognize the commercial real estate brokerage firms and individual brokers who truly excelled and achieved remarkable sales and leasing success in 2008 despite the difficult economic circumstances,” said CoStar Group President and CEO Andrew C. Florance. “We congratulate MacKenzie on its impressive professional accomplishment.”
Gary T. Gill, President and CEO of MacKenzie Commercial Real Estate Services, LLC, attributes the company’s continued success to its commitment to building long-term relationships with clients and partner organizations and the enhanced value of a multi-disciplined team in a challenged economy.
