This annual award recognizes the “best of the best” in commercial real estate brokerage by spotlighting the U.S. firms and individual brokers who closed the highest transaction volume in commercial property sales or leases for the entire year of 2012 in their respective market.
Rikkers qualified as one of the top commercial brokers in the Office Leasing category. In addition, both Apter and Rikkers qualified as two of the top commercial brokers in the Retail Leasing category. In order to be selected for this honor, Rikkers and Apter were measured against commercial real estate brokers active in the region by CoStar Group and subsequently ranked among the top brokers in the market.
Among Rikkers’ significant transactions that closed in 2012 were Navitus Health Solutions, Luminex Corporation and Sub-Zero. Apter’s significant transactions include A Woman’s Touch, Associated Podiatrists and Navitus Health Solutions.
“CoStar Group is very proud to recognize the select few commercial real estate brokerage firms and brokers who performed at the industry’s highest level and achieved remarkable sales and leasing success in 2012,” said CoStar Group Founder and CEO Andrew C. Florance. “These top performers truly represent the best of the best in commercial real estate, and they deserve to be recognized for their proven deal-making abilities. We congratulate Tim Rikkers and Matt Apter on their impressive professional accomplishments.”
