Professional Summary

Justin specializes in the sale and leasing of industrial owner-occupied and investment properties in the San Francisco Bay Area, with an emphasis in the east bay from Richmond to Fremont along the I-80 / I-880 corridor.  His clients include a mix of local, regional and national tenants across the ecommerce, distribution and manufacturing sectors, as well as a vareity of institutional and owners and developers, and "mom-and-pop" ownership groups.  In addition to providing full brokerage and advisory services for all types of industrial/warehouse properties, Justin and his team have developed a special niche within the food-grade processing and  cold storage / distribution asset class.  

Justin takes enormous pride in providing the highest level of market knowledge, analysis, insight and creative vision to all of his tenant, owner/occupier and investor clients.  The Colliers platform and extensive network only helps to achieve that, and he regularly collaborates with Colliers colleagues on a regional and national level in an effort to better serve the broader geographic needs of his clients.   

Every client’s operational and logistical needs are unique, so it is important to develop an understanding of each client’s business goals and requirements.  Justin is very protective and appreciative of his clients short and long term plans, and places a significant value on their real estate and facility needs.  He never feels satisfied until they have been placed in a situation that contributes meaningfully to their overall success.  Both the business and personal relationships that Justin has been fortunate enough to create during his time at Colliers has been the most rewarding aspect of commercial real estate career to date.

Prior to joining Colliers International in 2011, Justin worked in the commercial real estate industry for 12 years in the greater Phoenix metro area, where be focused on the sale  of residential and commercial land to master-plan community developers, national and local homebuilders, and speculative land investors.   During this time, Justin's skill set evolved to include representing private lenders and public banking institutions in the valuation and disposition of distressed assets and sub/non-performing notes.  

When not at work, Justin loves to spend time with his wife Olya and two sons, Anton and Roman.  And in his spare time he enjoy skiing, hiking, camping, golfing, playing various sports, and anything that involves enjoying the outdoors.
