Executive Managing Director, GLA
As executive managing director for Colliers International’s Greater Los Angeles region, I am based in the firm’s Irvine office, where I provide guidance and leadership for our sales professionals and support staff across 10 Southern California offices.
With more than 15 years of experience in commercial real estate, I have a broad background in the brokerage business, including six years spent building and managing a boutique firm of my own. Throughout my career, I have represented private clients, general partnerships, limited liability partnerships, property syndicators, developers, institutional investors and real estate investment trusts. As an enterprising and hard-working person, I place great value in leading by example and ensuring that I am both available and accessible to our clients and professionals.
Prior to joining Colliers, I served as a regional manager for Marcus & Millichap, where I lead a sales force of more than 60 commercial real estate investment brokers and loan originators in Los Angeles and the Inland Empire. There, in addition to recruiting and coaching new and experienced agents through the brokerage continuum, I developed programs and strategies to ensure the overall success of the region.
Ultimately, I understand that the brokerage business is about people. As such, I am dedicated to supporting and developing our professionals to make the most of what Colliers has to offer to both build their business and best service their clients.
