Professional Summary

My brokerage practice specializes in retail and mixed-use urban infill real estate along the I-880 corridor, with a particular focus on Oakland, Berkeley, and Emeryville.   Much of my work involves the food and beverage sector, including wineries and breweries.  My landlord clients range from institutional developers to individual property owners, and similarly my tenant clients vary from corporate clients to individual proprietors.

Prior to real estate, I worked 14 years as a builder on projects that included UC Berkeley, Ghiradelli Square, and Pets Unlimited.  Presently I draw on my building expertise almost daily—whether I am advising a client about prepping a property for sale, helping lay out space plans, or negotiating tenant improvements for a client.

Having practiced in Oakland and the adjacent municipalities for over 11 years, my connections run deep in both the private and public sector.  I pride myself with getting clients through the approval and development phases quickly and effectively.  I am always available to offer my time and advice about a potential enterprise.

Outside of work, I am active in both the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) and the Urban Land Institute. As a board member of the Lake Merritt/Uptown Business Improvement District, I help develop and oversee the strategic spending plan to enhance the vibrancy and appeal of the area.  I am passionate about Oakland and the dynamic renaissance currently transforming the city, especially in the food and beverage scene.  I run Lake Merritt a few times a week and am a huge A’s fan.
