Years ago, I had an “aha” moment about my career while biking across the country. I was on a path to pursue a career in accounting when I realized that I had a deep-rooted interest in another field that I was more passionate about. My grandfather had worked in construction building luxury residential homes and large suburban developments, and I found myself fascinated by the process of creating homes for people where they would come to build a life and create lasting memories.
As an associate within Colliers’ Multifamily Advisory Group, I am fortunate to work with a team of professionals whose focus is middle-market properties across the country. I bring to the team my expertise of the Greater Columbus Region, and my primary focus is properties with 100 units or less with value-add opportunity. I bring to the team a holistic perspective of building and maintaining relationships with clients and prospects, because I understand that putting myself in their shoes is the key to a successful relationship. As I work to build Colliers’ multifamily business in Columbus, I am fortunate to be able to work with a highly collaborative, integrated team that is building value for our clients.
Prior to my current role, I previously worked as a multifamily brokerage intern at Colliers where I gathered and verified market information and organized a database that detailed the team’s transactions. Prior to Colliers, I served as a customs broker intern at Freight Expediters where I dispatched, coordinated and tracked shipment transportation across the globe incoming to the U.S.
