Professional Summary

As a vice president with the Arizona Retail Services Team with Colliers International, I specialize in retail and restaurant real estate services, with a focus on tenant representation. Working in partnership with Daniel Ortega, vice president, our team represents local, regional and national tenants, buyers and sellers in the leasing, acquisition and disposition of retail properties, including power centers, neighborhood centers, stand-alone retail buildings and restaurants.

With proven success representing national credit tenants, a thorough knowledge of the retail market, strong industry relationships and tenacity, I have excelled in the retail real estate market. I build trust and deliver results through a proactive partnership approach and by aggressively representing my clients’ best interests.

On every assignment, I work closely with clients to develop optimal market plans and deliver customized and innovative solutions that lead to successful and beneficial real estate transactions.

Our team leverages Colliers’ exceptional resources in the retail sector and its comprehensive platform of services to enhance and broaden service offerings to our clients and ensure clients are able to make profitable and informed real estate decisions.

Refer to the client list below for notable tenants represented.

Prior to joining Colliers, I was an integral member of Velocity Retail Group’s tenant services in Phoenix, where I focused on new market roll-outs for national credit restaurants, specialty retailers and big box tenants. I assisted with market strategies, site selection, lease administration, and transaction negotiations on behalf of my clients.
