This series features the professional journeys of a wide range of professionals across Canada’s real estate development industry.

Meet Aman Bhatti, Director, Asset Management, Colliers Canada.

What was your post-secondary education path? 

I graduated from University with a Bachelor of Management degree with majors in Finance and Marketing. When I started post-secondary school, like many students, I was unsure of what my career path would look like.

How did you discover that Real Estate was an option? 

I was introduced to commercial real estate through a part time job in my last year of school and I began to consider it as a possible career option. Less than a year after finishing school, I joined Oxford Properties as a Property Administrator within their Retail group.

How did your career progress?

I spent the first ten years of my career working in enclosed shopping centres in a couple of different roles and organizations within the Property Management and Corporate Finance departments. As my career progressed, I ventured into the Asset Management space. I joined Triovest as an Assistant Asset Manager where I supported portfolios of institution owned office and industrial assets in Alberta and Saskatchewan. A few years later, I earned the opportunity to manage a portfolio of assets and was promoted to Asset Manager. 

I am currently with Colliers as Director, Asset Management. In this role I work closely with Leasing brokers, Property Management teams, and the client to strategize and create value for their assets.
