About

Professional Summary

Over his thirty two year career, Dave has successfully negotiated countless lease and sale transactions on behalf of institutional investors, local entrepreneurial developers, high tech companies, and sole proprietors. Dave’s leasing and disposition experience involves both domestic as well as international assignments beyond his primary focus here in Silicon Valley. Most recently Dave sold a large project in the prestigious Moffett Business Park which is now being repositioned and redeveloped as a brand new state of the art high tech office development. In addition to his day to day leasing activities on both the Landlord and Tenant sides, Dave recently closed escrow on a large redevelopment motel site on North First Street in San Jose which will be converted to a new residential development.

Dave’s commercial real estate career began with Bishop Hawk, Inc., a small boutique firm where he spent ten years as a top producer and Managing General Partner. Dave joined Colliers in 1994 and became President in 1995 where he served for nearly four years building Colliers’ brand throughout the Bay Area and western Nevada by hiring top real estate professionals and opening up several new offices. Dave’s experiences in transactional brokerage, coupled with his tremendous success in building Colliers International locally to well over a $100 Million plus Commercial Real Estate Company, give him excellent perspective and intuitiveness when consulting his clients. Dave has been nominated as the co-industrial broker of the year by the Association of Silicon Valley Brokers (ASVB), where he is a member in good standing. Dave served on the Board of Directors for Colliers and was previously the Team Leader of the R&D Division in the San Jose office.

Membership in SIOR is by invitation only and earned by tenured performance in the industry and strict adherence to the highest standards of professional ethics. The SIOR designation ensures a level of brokerage expertise unmatched by competing brokers in local, regional and national markets.
