Cushman & Wakefield Atlantic Celebrates 40 Years

2024 marks 40 years that Cushman & Wakefield Atlantic has been servicing Atlantic Canada. We reflect on the journey that has brought us to this milestone. Since our inception, our firm has been a cornerstone of the commercial real estate landscape in Atlantic Canada, serving clients with dedication, passion, and expertise. Today, we proudly stand as one of the largest and most respected full-service commercial real estate brokerages in the region, with a legacy built on trust, client commitment, and exceptional service.

Established in 1985 as Maritime Realty, our firm has been at the forefront of the Atlantic Canadian marketplace, facilitating over 200 transactions annually. From buying and selling properties to listing and leasing services, our services cater to the diverse needs of our clientele, spanning across various industries and sectors.

Cushman & Wakefield Atlantic is licensed to Commercial Eastern Inc., an independently owned and operated commercial brokerage headquartered in Halifax, Nova Scotia. With offices strategically located in all four Atlantic provinces, we have established a strong presence and legacy throughout the region, allowing us to provide local expertise and strategic market insights. Individually we are good. Together we are great. Our team of over 20 professionals, comprising seasoned veterans and dynamic new talents, is dedicated to delivering better outcomes for our clients, which is what really matters.

One of the key pillars of our success has been our longstanding alliance with Cushman & Wakefield, a global leader in real estate services. Since 1996, this strategic partnership has enabled us to leverage international networks, resources, and best practices, further enhancing the value proposition we offer to our clients.

Our success is a reflection of the collective efforts of our team, the trust of our clients, and the strength of our partnerships.” – Bill MacAvoy, Managing Director.

As we celebrate this major milestone, we express our gratitude to our clients, whose trust and loyalty have been the foundation of our success. Whether navigating through market fluctuations, economic challenges, or industry shifts, we have remained steadfast in our commitment to exceeding expectations and delivering results that matter.

Looking ahead, we are excited about the opportunities that the future holds. Service—to our clients, to each other, and to our communities—is at the centre of who we are at Cushman & Wakefield Atlantic.

We are geared up to continue our legacy of success, driving growth, and creating value for our clients, and communities. Here’s to 40 years of success, and to many more to come. Cheers to our firm, our team, and our cherished clients across Atlantic Canada!
