NAIOP Colorado Awards of Achievement announced

CBRE Inc. brokers Geoff Baukol, Mike Winn and Tim Richey garnered top honors as 2015 Investment Brokers of the Year at NAIOP Colorado’s annual Awards of Achievement Thursday afternoon.

Baukol was recognized as the top individual investment broker, while Winn and Richey took honors for the leading investment team in 2015. The Winn-Richey team completed $1.04 billion in transactions – about half the volume that occurred in the Denver area.

A new category this year – Legacy Broker of the Year – went to JLL’s Barry Dorfman. Dorfmann, who co-founded the Staubach Co., now JLL, has completed 20 million square feet of leasing in Denver in his 30 years in the business.

Also, the annual Trailblazer of the Year Award was renamed in honor of the late Sherman Miller IV and went to Courtney Hasson of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank. Miller, formerly executive director of the University of Colorado Real Estate Center and longtime leader of Cushman & Wakefield’s Denver office, was honored posthumously with the President’s Award for Contributions to the Real Estate Community.
