Salt Lake City—March 20, 2018—Barb Johnson and Vic Galanis of CBRE were recently recognized by the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors® (SIOR) for their achievements in real estate transactions. They won the award for Largest Dollar Volume Transaction in the Member to Member Office Transaction category for their collaborative efforts in the lease of the University of Utah Health Care Clinic in downtown Sugar House. The 170,000-square-foot site will house a consolidated specialty clinic which provides world-class outpatient services to citizens across the Salt Lake Valley. The SIOR Transaction Awards honor SIOR members who have completed significant transactions in several categories within the award year.

More than 600 SIORs reported 2,000 SIOR Transactions in 2017, with a total dollar volume of USD $10 billion. That sum is just a fraction of the total business done by SIOR members around the world. Nineteen SIOR members were honored individually for their accomplishments in 14 different transaction award categories.

Upon being honored by SIOR, Galanis commented, “It is a privilege to be honored by such a prestigious organization.” Johnson further added, “This transaction was years in the making, but in the end we successfully helped the client achieve their location and expansion goals to best serve their patients along the Greater Wasatch Front.

Collectively, Johnson and Galanis have 50 years of experience as licensed real estate professionals. Johnson has been a member of SIOR since 2008 and Galanis has been a member since 2011. They are Advisory & Transaction specialists in the Salt Lake City office of CBRE with a focus on office and healthcare occupiers.
