My recent focus on urban land assignments has resulted in $1 billion of transactions over the past since 2012.
Prior to Colliers, I co-led the land and multifamily practice at CBRE South Florida. Additionally, I served as Chief Investment Officer for The Federated Companies, a national real estate investment group that developed and managed over 7,500 units of residential housing with an aggregate value of over $1.5 billion.
