JLL recently acquired Bill Goold Realty, a commercial and multifamily residential property broker in Vancouver. Bill Goold Realty, which includes founder Bill Goold and six brokers, has a market-leading reputation, the company says.
They completed more than 30 transactions valued at $335 million in 2015, the highest ever for the group. With services including sales of multifamily buildings and development sites, they sold more than $1.2 billion in commercial and rental properties across the Lower Mainland and British Columbia, including North Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster and Victoria.
“This partnership allows JLL to benefit from the network and reputation for integrity Bill Goold has developed over more than 25 years,” says Brett Miller, CEO of JLL Canada. “It also ensures our Vancouver and other Canadian offices, with Bill’s continuing involvement, will be able to bring opportunities to global markets and attract more investment to Canada.”
Goold will lead JLL’s multifamily investment sales practice in Vancouver, and Bill Goold Realty’s Ray Townsend will lead day-to-day operations.
