Professional Summary

As the associate managing director for Colliers International Valuation and Advisory Services, my focus is on market-rate and rent-restricted apartment properties of all sizes throughout the Southwest Region (Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico), with an emphasis on Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac compliant appraisals. 

I joined Colliers in February 2012, following five years of commercial real estate experience as a senior market analysit at Marcus & Millichap in Phoenix. In that role, I was responsible for collecting, interpreting and forecasting commercial real estate data and economic trends to produce brief and in-depth market overviews of various U.S. metros in California, Arizona, Texas, Oregon, Nevada, Colorado, as well as national trends. Prior to my tenure as senior market analyst, I received my first experience in the world of commercial real estate by interning for a top-producing multifamily broker.
