Avison Young, Canada’s largest independently-owned commercial real estate services company, announced today the opening of a newly-formed Washington, DC office, and that industry veteran Keith Lipton has been recruited as Managing Director.

The new American office, the first of several planned for the region, will be located in downtown DC. It will mark Avison Young’s second location outside of Canada and represent the next step in the company’s aggressive growth and expansion strategy.

Lipton, who also becomes an Avison Young Principal, was most recently Executive Vice-President and Managing Director of Grubb & Ellis’ Washington, DC area offices. In his new role, he will be responsible for building Avison Young’s DC metro region – Washington, DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia. Also joining the Washington office are Margaret Donkerbrook as Vice-President, U.S. Research, and Sarah Peyton as Regional Operations Manager. Both were formerly with Grubb & Ellis in Washington, DC.
