John Johannson

Senior vice president

Colliers International Minneapolis-St. Paul




John Johannson was a college hockey standout for the University of Wisconsin before getting into the commercial real estate business. Today he’s known and respected as one of the best, most experienced retail real estate brokers. But he also has skin in the game as a developer and owner of his own portfolio. Johannson was a development partner with Minneapolis-based CSM Corp. on Central Park Commons in Eagan, a 434,000-square-foot retail center completed in 2017. The successful project, anchored by a Hy-Vee grocery store, is one of the largest local retail developments in recent years.
