“We are thrilled to announce the achievement of this milestone which has exceeded our goals across South Carolina,” said Lane. “Our success is due in tremendous part to our clients, an increasing demand for professional management of industrial investment properties and solid collaboration between our brokerage, project management and property management teams in each of our four offices.”

In 2020, the firm expanded its management service offerings to 13 new clients within the REMS portfolio, adding 54 properties that account for 9.2 million square feet of space. This additional square footage represents approximately 13% of Colliers Internationals’ REMS portfolio growth across the entire United States in 2020.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has created a greater need for our management services as landlords are navigating challenges they have never faced before,” continues Lane. “The Colliers REMS team has gone above and beyond to ensure that CDC health and cleaning guidelines are met every day and that our tenants continue to feel safe in their place of business. Our professionals have helped clients navigate the full cycle of events so that real estate remains an anchor of success amid the turbulence.”

Among Colliers | South Carolina’s managed properties, approximately 9.5 million square feet are in central South Carolina, 4.1 million in the Greenville-Spartanburg area and 2.5 million in greater Charleston. Across the state, the portfolio consists of 10.7 million square feet of industrial, 4.2 million square feet of office and 1.2 million square feet of retail properties.
