Colliers expands NYC Capital Markets team with B6 hires – Trading Observer

Necklaces tapped Dylan Kane and Zach Redding of B6 Real Estate Advisors as managing directors of the company’s growing New York Capital Markets group, Commercial Observer may first point out.

Kane and Redding, who will be based in the firm’s Manhattan office, will focus on investment sale transactions as well as debt and equity financings. The addition of Kane and Redding brings the Colliers New York Capital Markets group to 12 professionals, up from just two in the summer of 2020 when Pierre Nicoletti took it over after arriving after a long stint at JLL. Nicoletti is now looking to double the squad by the end of 2023.

“In order to truly serve our clients across the full spectrum of financial markets, you need to have the right people on the ground,” Nicoletti told CO. “With the volume we’re doing, we need to put the right people in place.”

At B6 Real Estate Advisors, Kane and Redding completed several significant investment sales and financings across a number of commercial real estate asset classes. Some notable transactions included a $101 million sale of a mixed-use building at 576 Fifth Avenue and a $25 million refinancing of an office building at 2 Sound View Drive in Greenwich, Connecticut.

“The ability of a team to expertly lead the process of selling an investment while placing debt and securing financing is rare,” John Gallagher, Colliers executive general manager and New York market leader, said in a statement. “Dylan and Zach bring diverse skill sets to Colliers that are exactly the types of traits we emphasize at Colliers, and we look forward to working with them.”

In 2020, Redding was honored as the New York Real Estate Board‘s Most Promising Salesperson of the Year, and in 2019 he was selected by Commercial Observer as one of the Top 30 Sales and Leasing Professionals Under 30. He previously worked at Cushman and Wakefield and earned a bachelor’s degree West Virginia University.

“Colliers has a deeply experienced team in New York and a unique structure that enables and encourages investment sales and debt and equity brokers to work effectively together,” Redding said in a statement. “The highly collaborative and forward-looking Colliers platform will allow us to continue to grow our business and capture additional market share in debt and equity.”

“Zach and I are thrilled to join this prestigious capital markets platform in New York, and we plan to leverage Colliers industry-leading resources and global footprint to continue providing best-in-class service to institutional-level clients, on their way to becoming one of the most productive teams in town,” Kane said.

Kane was selected as one of the Top Mortgage Brokers 2021 by ConnectCRE and in 2019 was honored by Commercial Observer as one of the Top 25 Debt and Equity Professionals Under 35. Prior to working for B6 Real Estate Advisors, Kane worked at Newmark and Bank of America. He obtained his bachelor’s degree from Middlebury College.
