Boston, MA Leading global commercial real estate services firm Colliers has recruited commercial real estate investment market leader, Matthew Sherry, to join its office as a managing director in the firm’s Capital Markets group focusing on investment sales transactions.
Sherry joins Colliers from JLL where he has spent the last ten years focused on the disposition of core trophy assets, as well as a diverse mix of urban/suburban, office, industrial, life science and land development assets, resulting in over seven billion dollars in total sales transaction volume. Recent major market sales include Waltham’s POST project at 200 Smith St. that sold for $320 million, Riverside Center in Newton which was acquired for $235 million and Rivertech at 129 Concord Rd. in Billerica which was acquired for $84.5 million.
Sherry’s move to Colliers reunites him with managing director Frank Petz and senior advisor John Nasca, with whom he worked in partnership at JLL prior to them joining Colliers in late 2019/early 2020.
With great excitement for the team’s continued growth, Petz expressed his enthusiasm for welcoming Sherry to Colliers. “There is no better partner than Matt. Adding him to our well-rounded team will continue enabling us to advance and deeply solidify the Colliers Capital Markets brand,” said Petz.
For Sherry, the move represents an opportunity to reunite in a partnership with Petz and continue to provide their clients with tailored solutions and senior-level focus.
He also cites the leadership team and the firm’s broader commitment to a balanced and collaborative culture as a significant attraction for his decision to move.
“I am thrilled to be joining the Colliers platform. It’s clear that there is deep investment – both locally and nationally – committed to taking things to the next level,” noted Sherry. “I look forward to re-joining Frank and returning to the strong dynamic we always had working together in years past.”
“Bringing Matt to Colliers is a tribute to our existing strength within the Boston market and commitment to strategic growth of our Capital Markets platform at large,” said David Goodhue, executive managing director and market leader of Colliers’ local office.
Colliers’ Boston office has recently developed a significant recruitment program, bringing in notable real estate leaders including Jeanne Pinado, John Butterworth, Kendin Carr, and Kevin Hanna, among others.
“We are excited to continue building a team that will compete at the highest level, without compromising the core Colliers culture and enterprising spirit that both our employees and our clients greatly value,” said Goodhue.
