Avison Young expands US real estate business

Toronto-based real estate firm Avison Young has expanded its US capabilities by acquiring Atlanta-based brokerage Rich Real Estate Services, which will now be rebranded as Avison Young.

Avison Young opened its Atlanta office in 2010 and this acquisition brings 30-year veteran of the region’s real estate industry Kirk Rich into the business as a principal.

"We're thrilled that Kirk has brought his extensive landlord-representation experience and expertise to Avison Young," comments Avison Young president and CEO Mark E. Rose. "Kirk has become a commercial real estate industry leader by listening to clients as they explain their needs – and understanding all of their operational challenges. His extensive knowledge of local, national and international markets, along with his positive long-term global relationships, will be of immense benefit to our company and clients going forward."

Avison Young also acquired Atlanta’s Hotel Assets Group a week ago.
