(DRE), is pleased to announce that Divaris Real Estate has been selected by CoStar Group, Inc., the leading provider of commercial real estate information, analytics and online marketplaces, to receive three CoStar Power Broker Awards. DRE received two Top Firm awards for both sales and leasing in the Hampton Roads region, while the Richmond office received a Top Firm award for leasing. These annual awards recognize the “best of the best” in commercial real estate brokerage by highlighting the firms and individual brokers who closed the highest transaction volumes in commercial property sales or leases in 2015 within their respective markets.
With the largest independently researched database of commercial real estate property information available online, CoStar can easily identify the top firms and brokers in each market throughout the U.S. and Toronto, Canada. All awards are based on transaction data maintained in CoStar’s commercial real estate database.
Divaris Real Estate qualified as one of the top commercial brokerage firms in Hampton Roads and Richmond based on total sales and lease transactions closed during the year. In order to be selected for this honor, DRE’s overall transaction volumes were evaluated by CoStar against other commercial real estate brokerage firms active in its region, and subsequently ranked among the top firms in the market.
“With such an active year in commercial real estate, CoStar is proud to honor the individual brokers and firms who perform at the industry’s highest level,” said CoStar Group founder and CEO Andrew C. Florance. “These industry leaders deserve to be recognized for their expertise, hard work and superior deal-making abilities.
