Professional Summary

I am responsible for the Landlord Services Group at Colliers Atlanta, directing the team representing owners and investors in the leasing of office space in the Market.

I have spent a significant portion of my career (19 years) on the development side of the business providing lead tenant leases for new office development in Atlanta, Birmingham, Nashville, and Charlotte.  I was also responsible with the balance of lease up and managing teams in each location. Since 2011, I have lead the Colliers Landlord Services team growing the portfolio to over 8.5 million SF of class A & B office properties.

Prior to joining Colliers, I was the Senior Managing Director of Leasing, Marketing and Property Management at Barry Real Estate Companies, responsible for the leasing and management of all Barry Companies Properties as well as approximately 3 million RSF of third party management and leasing assignments.  

I began my real estate career in 1983 working for Koger Properties. In 1985, I joined Portman Barry, representing approximately 1,500,000 RSF. I worked with Portman Barry through 1990, when I joined Grubb & Ellis and helped to start the National Corporate Services Group working with clients such as IBM, Wassau and the precursor to AT&T Wireless.   In 1985, I joined Faison as Leasing Agent for Northpark Town Center and quickly moved to oversee leasing of the 6 million RSF portfolio. In 1997, I once again joined Hal Barry and Chris Schoen to form Barry Real Estate Companies to lead the Leasing and Property Management efforts.  

In addition to the Atlanta Office Market, I have been very active in the Nashville and the Birmingham Office markets, over the past 15 years.  During my tenure at Barry, my team and I were instrumental in completing lease transactions that lead to new building development and the balance of the lease up of over 4 million square feet in Atlanta, Birmingham, Nashville, Orlando, Dallas and Charlotte.
