NAI Global Expands to Colorado

Posted by on Apr 11, 2019

NAI Global, a leading commercial real estate brokerage firm, recently expanded its footprint in Colorado. Chrisland Inc., a boutique commercial real estate brokerage, investment and development firm in Fort Collins, joined NAI Global. The global firm plans to maintain local ownership following NAI’s mantra, “Lead locally. Act globally.” It will now do joint business under the name of NAI Affinity. While they’re known for real estate brokerage, NAI Affinity’s business does both brokerage and investments. Ryan Schaefer, co-founder of Chrisland Inc., will remain the CEO of NAI Affinity.

The firm is involved in many land deals, such as the 2534 master-planned community worth $20 million. The mass amounts of land available for purchase in Northern Colorado is appealing for global investors who don’t often see so much acreage available in one place. Further, these opportunities allow for Northern Colorado to be put on a global map in a way it wasn’t before. While local business helps NAI Global tremendously, NAI Global is also beneficial for Chrisland. Schaefer stated, “We will be able to expose our clients to investment opportunities we would not have been aware of before we joined NAI.”

NAI Global is a subset of C-III Capital Partners, led by CEO and Chairman, Andrew Farkas. The company has over 400 offices all over the world. Annually, NAI Global completes in excess of $20 billion in commercial real estate transactions. NAI Global has been working with many of the world’s largest multinational corporations for more than 30 years.
