Avison Young has announced the addition of two experienced real estate professionals to its Montreal office.
Jean Pierre Gagnon and Robert Metcalfe have a combined 55 years industry experience and both join from global real estate firm CBRE’s Montreal office where they were vice-presidents specializing in investment property transactions.
Prior to joining CBRE, Ganon held executive, broker and appraiser positions in Montreal with Samson Bélair/Deloitte & Touche, and Altus Group.
"I'm also excited to be part of Avison Young's principal-led business model and its growing team of entrepreneurial real estate professionals,” he said. “This is a great opportunity to provide value-added services to new and long-term clients and a one-stop solution for investors in office, retail and industrial portfolios."
Meanwhile, Metcalfe was previously a senior appraiser and real estate consultant at Royal LePage Advisory Services in Montreal, which he joined in 1989.
"Jean-Pierre and Robert are valuable additions to our Montreal team," adds Mark Fieder, Avison Young Principal and COO, Canadian Operations. "Their experience as both brokers and appraisers will be instrumental in helping our clients adopt the best strategies when making investments and dispositions. They will also be an important part of our national capital markets team across Canada."
