Part of CBRE’s Industrial & Logistics practice in Denver, Mr. Bolt has participated in an industry-leading number of sale and lease transactions. Notable recent deals include the record-breaking 3.75 million-sq.-ft. sale of the PAULS national industrial portfolio to Clarion Partners in 2018 and last year’s $247.5 million sale of the Etkin Johnson Real Estate Partners’ Colorado Industrial Portfolio, which marked the largest industrial portfolio sale ever in Colorado.
“For nearly three decades Jim has played a leading role in Denver’s largest and most impactful industrial transactions—deals that not only shattered records but have helped to position Denver as one of the top-performing industrial markets in the nation. Jim is relentless in advocating on his clients’ behalf, and he is among the most well-respected in our industry,” said Pete Schippits, Senior Managing Director of CBRE’s Mountain States region.
