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.
