About

Professional Summary

As the Founding Partner of Colliers International’s Scottsdale office and Senior Executive Vice President for Greater Phoenix, I lead the Scottsdale office and serve as designated broker. Considered one of the leading commercial real estate experts in the Deer Valley and Loop 101 Employment Base and the Scottsdale Airpark, I specialize in the sale and leasing of office, industrial and flex buildings, land, and aviation properties.

I have completed countless sales of office and industrial buildings to both investors and users. I serve as a broker and advisor to developers and users in the purchase, sale, and lot layout of business, office and industrial land subdivisions. I also consult with and negotiate on behalf of owners, users and developers on build-to-suits

With more than 30 years of industry experience as a sales leader, developer and real estate consultant, I have developed and owned office and industrial buildings, aviation hangars, convenience markets, and lot subdivisions

I embrace the full service “Cradle to Grave” approach to commercial real estate:

  • Step 1 – Identifying the site and negotiating the purchase on behalf of the client
  • Step 2 – Using a team approach to lease up the property on behalf of the investor, developer and user
  • Step 3 – Selling the asset at the highest value in the shortest amount of time on behalf of the owner

I began working in the Scottsdale Airpark in 1981, and founded Classic Real Estate Corporation in 1983. In 1998, I sold 50 percent interest in Classic to Colliers International to expand its commercial real estate presence into the Loop 101 Employment Base (Scottsdale Airpark, Desert Ridge, and Deer Valley).
