About

Professional Summary

I specialize in the sale and leasing of industrial, warehouse, R&D and investment properties in the San Francisco Bay Area, with a special expertise along the I-80 / I-880 corridor.  My clients include a mix of local, regional and national tenants in the ecommerce, distribution and manufacturing sectors, as well as a vareity of institutional owners and developers.  In addition to providing full brokerage and advisory services for warehouse and industrial properties, our team offers a special expertise in the food-grade processing and distribution arena.

I take enormous pride in providing the highest level of market knowledge, analysis, insight and creative vision to all of our tenant, owner/occupier and investor clients.  The Colliers platform and extensive network only helps to achieve that, and I regularly collaborate with Colliers colleagues on a regional and national level in an effort to better serve the broader geographic needs of our 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.  I am very protective and appreciative of my clients short and long term plans, and place a significant value on their real estate and facility needs.  I never feel satisfied until they have been placed in a situation that contributes meaningfully to their overall success.  Both the business and personal relationships that I've been fortunate enough to create during my time at Colliers has been the most rewarding aspect of commercial real estate career.

Prior to joining Colliers International in 2011, I worked in the commercial real estate industry for 12 years in the greater Phoenix metropolitan area..  I started my career in 1999 in Tempe, AZ at Hogan and Associates, specializing in the sale of residential and commercial land to master plan developers, national and local homebuilders and speculative land investors.  In time, my 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.  During my time working in commercial real estate in Arizona, my transaction involvement exceeded $750 million.

When not at work, my wife Olya and I love to spend time with our son Anton.  And in my spare time I enjoy skiing, hiking, camping, golfing, and anything that involves being outdoors.
