About

Professional Summary

The key to my success and ultimately my client’s success is empathy. I care about my clients.  I listen to their needs, goals and challenges. Together, we break through barriers, some real and some imagined, to find space that will accelerate their success.

I started my career in Property Management with KCS Development Company, where I set my roots in the retail industry. As a property manager, I was exposed to work that required both business savvy and integrity. Having been in shopping center management and development, my career followed the “retail” path into brokerage. The most rewarding parts of my job has been watching my retail tenants succeed. One of my first clients, Gordito Burrito, remains in business in the same location after more than 25 years.  I have helped LifeTime Fitness, a national Health and Fitness company, develop two of their top-of-the-line facilities in the greater Sacramento area.  Whether a local, regional, or national Landlord or Tenant, my approach of speedy communication, responsiveness and empathy -  paired with 40 years of commercial real estate knowledge, help me make informed decisions about my client’s business. 

I am a native of Sacramento and believe in giving back to my community.  I have served for five years as an Advisor to the Board for the Assistance League of Sacramento; a nonprofit volunteer organization, which enhances lives in the Sacramento region through community-based programs. I am a multi-year Board Member and Type 2 Certified volunteer with Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department Search & Rescue.
