For healthcare commercial real estate experts Alexandra Loye, senior vice president, and Philip Wurth, executive vice president, there is always an urgency and immediacy to deliver actionable market intelligence and best-in-class, value-add services for their clients. “The Wurth-Loye Healthcare Real Estate Team at Colliers offers clients a holistic approach to healthcare asset management with offerings including acquisition, leasing services, tenant representation, disposition services and property management thorough Colliers Real Estate Management Services (REMS),” says Loye.
