Professional Summary

I represent corporate office users with their real estate requirements across the Chicago metro area.  I partner with my clients to develop and implement creative real estate plans that strengthen and promote their overall business interests by reducing costs, minimizing occupancy risks and maximizing flexibility and workplace efficiency.  I am also a member of the suburban office leasing team, working on behalf of institutional and regional investors to construct value-creating strategies through the acquisition, leasing and disposition of office space throughout suburban Chicago.

A background in asset and property management has provided me with a fundamental understanding of how commercial real estate is analyzed by landlords throughout the investment cycle, from acquisition through marketing and leasing to disposition. This background also allows me to provide corporate occupiers with valuable insight relating to the goals of the landlords, and ultimately allows me to mitigate leasing risk and identify future opportunities for my clients

I began my real estate career in property management, when I joined the Colliers International | Chicago’s Real Estate Management Services Group in 2008, focusing on the management of industrial properties for institutional owners.  

In 2009, I transitioned to the Distressed Asset Team as an assistant manager, where I coordinated the management and leasing of a 3 million-square-foot portfolio of distressed assets across the Midwest. My team and I were engaged to work on multiple assets as court appointed receivers and established practices for operating and leasing challenged real estate.
