He joins the firm after 10 years at JOSS Realty Partners, a commercial real estate investment management firm. As principal, head of acquisitions, Amin helped grow the organization from inception to over $1 billion of real estate assets and participated in $250 million of equity raises.

He also bought, financed, managed and sold over three million square feet of commercial real estate while executing core through opportunistic investment strategies in New York, Washington, DC, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Miami.

Before JOSS Realty Partners, Amin was deputy COO of US Investment Banking at Deutsche Bank and served in the financial institutions mergers & acquisitions groups at Lazard and Wasserstein Perella.

He arrives in the wake of a 12-person marquee team joining Colliers late last year. Led by Scott Latham, Richard Baxter and Yoron Cohen, and including professionals Stephen Shapiro and Jason Gold, that migration reportedly launched the firm into the region’s top tier of service providers on the capital markets/investment side of the commercial real estate business.

Amin brings over 15 years of investment management, capital raising, financing, joint venture, recapitalization, workout and advisory expertise to Colliers. He will tap this experience to expand the firm’s suite of capital markets and advisory solutions for investor clients. In addition to transaction origination and execution, Amin will oversee Colliers’ capital markets analytics teams focused on investment and recapitalizations here.

“Ameet is a significant addition for us as we continue to build a world-class capital markets team in New York,” says Joseph Harbert, Colliers’ president, eastern region. “His experience as an investor adds a unique perspective for our clients and furthers our ability to provide a differentiated level of insight and execution for institutional and entrepreneurial investors.”
