Sean Baird

Dorothy has been in the student housing industry for 20+ years, having started her career in Gainesville, FL. Owners and developers consistently looked for her input on market conditions and suggestions on how to make their properties become most viable for the students. Prior to Dorothy joining Colliers International in 2012 as Managing Director of the National Student Housing Group, she was a Sr. VP with a national firm where she was instrumental in building a platform of student housing brokerage. Through these efforts, Ms. Jackman formed a group dedicated to student housing brokerage, training, mentoring and hiring other agents to work on the team. Her team provided early reports and data which were difficult to come by in the early years of student housing. As a result, her team was regarded as a resource, and it was through those initial efforts that the brand became prominent.

Her role with Colliers is to continue strengthening relationships with owners, management companies, developers, investors and equity providers in the industry. Ms. Jackman has presented and moderated at the most prominent conferences in the space and is considered to be one of the industry’s preeminent experts. Dorothy believes in making the client’s needs her focus and assisting them in achieving their goals is her main priority.
