Professional Summary

I am an experienced real estate professional specializing in the nationwide sale, acquisition and advisory of single tenant net lease properties. 

I am a vice president with Colliers | Chicago's Net Lease Investments group, "The Restaurant Experts". I am based in Boise, Idaho  and our team is constantly developing new tools to support client needs and have aggregated an unbelievable amount of data that is proving to be very useful for investors, franchisees, developers and franchisors.

As a 15+ year industry veteran, I have both corporate and brokerage real estate experience that includes several hundred properties totaling over a billion dollars and transactions in over 30 states. I use my experience, attention to detail and knowledge of what drives value to help individuals, companies and organizations maximize the value of their real estate holdings.


Before joining Colliers, my professional experience included corporate real estate acquisitions and due diligence, managing the disposition of all real estate assets for a large real estate trust created through the bankruptcy of an organization that the Wall Street Journal referred to as “one of the hairiest legal unravelings in real estate history” and managing land acquisitions for a Fortune 500 company.

I have an established track record in providing real estate savings to clients or employees in excess of 10 million dollars.
