Colliers' Southern California Sales Team Moves to Avison Young

A team of Southern California investment-sales specialists from Colliers International has moved to Avison Young, where they were named principals.

The three, Chris and David Maling and Patrick Barnes, who are headquartered in Los Angeles, collectively have 65 years of experience in helping clients sell their retail, office and industrial properties. During that time, they've handled more than $4 billion of deals involving properties in 41 states. They'll also work with Avison Young's asset-resolution practice group to expand the company's national distressed-asset sales practice.

Chris Maling, previously executive vice president at Colliers, joined that firm in 2011 after a 21-year career at Marcus & Millichap, where he became senior director of the company's national retail group. He joined the company during the heat of the savings and loan crisis in 1989. As such, he at the time focused on liquidating distressed properties and loans across the country.

His brother, David, previously was senior vice president at Colliers, which he also joined in 2011 from Marcus, where he was a director in the company's special assets group. Before that, he was an asset manager, first with Charles Dunn Co., then with Capital Growth Properties.

Barnes, meanwhile, had joined Colliers, where he was senior vice president, in 2010 from CBRE. He previously was a quarterback with the National Football League and played for the Oakland Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs, San Francisco 49ers and Cleveland Browns franchises. He also played in the Canadian Football League and NFL Europe.

He had played quarterback for the University of California football team and in 1996 was named an All-American. That year, he threw for 3,499 yards and 31 touchdowns.
