“We are extremely excited to be welcoming one of the Eastside’s most reputable tenant rep teams,” says Jim Bowles, Senior Managing Director with CBRE. “Not only is this a real coup for our organization locally, but will have a significant impact on the market.”
Both Durrell and Jochums have been consistent Top 5 producers during their 7-year stint at Cushman & Wakefield | Commerce.

He began his career with Colliers International in 1995 and was a graduate of the University of Washington with a B.A. in Economics and Political Science.
“Both Kip and Jeff’s attention to detail and insight into the industry and market will be a huge benefit to our current roster of clients as well as prospective clients,” continues Bowles. “Not only are they great brokers, they are even better people and will fit in well with our existing team of professionals in Bellevue.”
