Professional Summary

As an associate with Colliers International in Arizona, I am a member of the top-producing team of Don MacWilliam and Payson MacWilliam. Our team specializes in industrial real estate sales and leasing in the Southwest Valley distribution market.

Services include tenant representation and agency listings from many major developers, such as CapRock Partners, Merit Partners, ProLogis, EastGroup Properties, First Industrial Realty Trust, Sun State Builders, Exeter Properties, Sun Life Assurance and Liberty Property Trust.

I work closely with clients to evaluate their short- and long-term objectives and align marketing strategies with their business goals to deliver results. My strong financial background enables me to calculate current and potential property values, prepare occupancy and operational cost analyses, and provide financial comparisons. My goal is to maximize the financial returns for our clients. Carefully guiding clients throughout the leasing, acquisition and disposition process, I ensure their best interests are represented throughout final transaction negotiations.

Clients and colleagues describe me as smart and analytical, with a disciplined and dedicated work ethic. My accountability, diligence, communication skills and creative problem-solving make me valued partner to our team and our clients.

During the past decade, our team has added more than 5 million square feet of user build-to-suits and more than 3 million square feet of speculative development product to the Southwest Valley distribution market. Our team has also increased the total distribution base by almost 10 percent in the past 10 years.

I have extensive experience in the mortgage and financial services industry. Prior to joining Colliers, I was a mortgage loan originator with Peoples Mortgage in Tempe. I worked with clients, underwriters and loan processors to select the correct mortgage product and complete mortgage loan processing and closings.

Previously I was a president’s club mortgage banker and solution consultant for Quicken Loans in Phoenix. In this role, I maintained the highest level of accuracy and due diligence during the loan approval process, leading to a top 10 percent loans closed rate. I consistently led the company in loans closed and conditionally approved loans.

At Quicken, I developed relationships with potential clients, educated them about the loan process, and provided constructive and timely solutions to build and maintain business. My success at Quicken Loans was demonstrated by promotions received in the fastest timeframe allotted. I was quickly promoted from an initial position as an untitled solution consultant to senior solution consultant, then to executive solution consultant, and finally president’s club mortgage banker and solution consultant.
