About

Professional Summary

During my 25+ year career I have been involved in the research, asset management and sales of primarily institutional apartment properties located throughout the United States. 

My extensive sales track record, coupled with a background in quantitative analysis and real estate finance, affords me the requisite skills to assist you in achieving both your short-term and long-term investment goals.  My role as a Partner in the Apartment Advisory Team (“AAT”) is to provide underwriting analysis, market knowledge, and due diligence processing to each of the transactions that AAT facilitates.  Immersing myself in the market, I dedicate time each day to researching the national and local multifamily sector.  Speaking with local owners and managers in our market, and staying up-to-date on prominent issues such as interest rates, rent control, and cap rates, provides me with the breadth and depth of market knowledge to help you make good business decisions.

Whether its satisfying exchange or debt needs, expanding a portfolio, or realigning assets to suit business goals, I leverage all available resources to achieve success for my clients.  I invite you to read a case study about Somerfield Apartment Homes where my team and I took a boots-on-the-ground approach to solve a complex challenge (linked below).

Outside of Colliers you can find me officiating high school and youth football where I am able to exercise my attention to detail and participate in a sport that I love.
