  • Wow, what a year! Despite the challenges of another year of Covid, 2021 proved to be one of the most successful years for our team and CBRE as there was a record amount of global investment in commercial real estate (CRE), surpassing 2019.

  • Since its inception in 1990, the CBRE Golf & Resort Group has executed more than $2.5 billion in property transactions.

  • With all the mayhem COVID-19 caused, who would have predicted golf and second homes would benefit so greatly.

  • 2019 saw the sale of 5 prominent golf portfolios, developers invacation markets looking to sell and huge crowds at ski resorts.

  • How much longer will the recovery last? We saw recession predictors, but the U.S. remains strong and is attracting international investment.

  • The stock market reached all time highs and investor confidence surged as the recovery continued.

  • Love him or hate him, Donald Trump injected enthusiasm into the economy and the stock market took an upward swing.

“I was extremely pleased with the performance of Jeff Woolson and the team at CBRE with the marketing of Kingsmill Resort. The success of the project hinged not only on Jeff’s extensive experience, expertise and network of investors, but also his perseverance through a tough market. He communicated with me throughout every step of the process and ultimately found a single buyer for Kingsmill, a complicated mixed-use resort property. I look forward to working with Jeff on future assignments.
