I am a Jacksonville native with more than 40 years of experience in real estate and construction. I specialize in investment sales as well as office leasing, including both landlord representation and tenant representation. I am a member of the Advisory Board Executive Committee at Colliers International Northeast Florida.
Prior to joining Colliers in 2008, I spent 20 years with an office REIT in various capacities. My experience there included site acquisition and building development. My involvement in all areas of real estate from market analysis to building design process to product delivery, including leasing, property and asset management, allows me to provide unique benefits to my team at Colliers International Northeast Florida. My expertise lies in problem solving, sales strategy, transaction management, construction management, and assisting owner and tenants in achieving goal-oriented results using best-in-class practices.
My current brokerage practice is focused on corporate services, providing real estate consultation to public and private entities. One of my largest accounts is the local transportation entity, the Jacksonville Transportation Authority. I manage both their surplus disposition efforts and their acquisition strategy. Their portfolio is valued at over $30 million. I provide a wide range of services, including but not limited to property sales, property acquisition, market analysis, lease analysis, government affairs and general market intelligence. I am frequently involved with executive level discussions and interact with their Board regularly. Additionally, I represent the St. Vincent’s Hospital Ministry for Ascension Health here locally. I manage dispositions, acquisitions and their income and expense leasing activities. My largest national account is Torchmark/Liberty National. I work with their Director of Real Estate to identify new office space for their insurance brokers across the country.
In addition to my traditional real estate practice, I have been successful in assisting numerous cannabis related businesses with their real estate requirements (dispensaries, grow & manufacturing facilities) here in Florida, as well as coordinating with other Colliers offices in Oregon, Colorado and California.
I am a native born JacksonvillIian. I attended Stanton College Preparatory School before graduating from Florida State University in 1997 with a B.S. in Political Science. After school, I moved to Washington, D.C. to begin a career in politics. After stops in multiple Congressional offices, the Republican National Committee, FEMA and a government affairs firm, I was given the opportunity to begin a career in real estate back home in Jacksonville in 2005. Working for a small development firm, we developed 50,000+ square feet of Class A office condominiums throughout Northeast Florida. I was the lead on bank and investor negotiations for investment capital and loan arrangements.
I was called to duty once more in D.C., taking a position as Executive Director of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Political Affairs Department from January 2012 until October 2014. I managed the program’s voter education campaigns and political intelligence gathering.
