CBRE announced that a team synonymous with office agency leasing in the Puget Sound region has joined its Seattle office. Laura Ford, Greg Inglin and David Abbott join CBRE as Senior Vice Presidents, and Katie Nagle joins as an Associate.

“We are thrilled to welcome one of the preeminent institutional leasing teams in our market, a strategic complement to our existing bench of top leasing talent, as well as our capital markets and property management capabilities.

Bringing over 20 years of experience, Laura Ford, Senior Vice President, is a recognized leader in her industry. Ms. Ford has represented more than 11 million sq. ft. of office space in Seattle and Bellevue, including many of the market’s largest Class A buildings.

She has been recognized as a NAIOP Office Broker of the Year, GlobeSt./Real Estate Forum Women of Influence, Connect Media Top 50 Women in Real Estate, and Washington’s Most Powerful and Influential Women award winner, among others.

Greg Inglin, Senior Vice President, is one of the most active office brokers in the Seattle region, executing 400,000 sq. ft. in transactions last year alone. Today an agency leasing specialist, Mr. Inglin’s career has spanned both landlord and tenant representation, as well as investment sales. At Colliers, Mr. Inglin was recognized among the firm’s top 10 percent of producers nationally and top 10 overall in the state of Washington.

He is an active member of the Commercial Brokers Association, NAIOP, the Urban Land Institute, and the Washington Association of Commercial Realtors, where he previously served as president.

David Abbott, Senior Vice President, is also regarded among the Puget Sound region’s top office agency leasing specialists. Mr. Abbott has completed hundreds of leasing transactions totaling more than 3 million sq. ft. in the past three years alone. At Colliers, he was named among the firm’s top 10 brokers in Washington over the last 10 years and top 10 percent nationally. He is a multi-year CoStar Power Broker honoree and finalist for NAIOP/SIOR’s Office Broker of the Year. Mr. Abbott is active in the Commercial Brokers Association, the Washington Technology Industry Association and NAIOP. He is a Seattle native and attended the University of Washington.

Katie Nagle joins CBRE as an Associate. She began her career in real estate at Kidder Mathews after graduating from Washington State University.
