with the express intent of focusing on the marketing and
sale of small and midmarket companies located within the bounds of
Portland Metro. Roland Casad is the owner and Principal Business

business brokerage practice from the Business Sales Division of

nearly 5 years as an Associate Business Broker.

recruited to Coldwell Banker Commercial (CBC) from Shared
Communications Services (SCS - a phone services company that focused on
serving NW businesses) to sell and lease commercial real estate. But
soon, he gravitated to the Business Sales Division of CBC.
to working for SCS, Mr. Casad worked in state government service, most
often with business oriented agencies, e.g., Real Estate Agency,
Corporations Division, Executive Department, Transportation Department,
the Department of Economic & Community Development. Much of
this work involved legislative liaison, policy analysis, strategic
planning, and central budgeting for the Governor’s Office.

Business Brokers Association (IBBA, Ohio), the leading education and
professional association in the industry. Also, he is a licensed
