Professional Summary

As Director of Operations Real Estate Management Services for the Northern Nevada office, I currently oversee a staff of five and the management of 1.7 million square feet of retail, office, industrial and mixed use properties in the Reno and Sparks market. I am the Branch Manager for Colliers Real Estate Management Services in Reno, NV. I moved to the Reno area in 2004 and joined Colliers International in December 2006. During my 30 year real estate career, I have provided management, leasing and construction expertise and service to my clients.

I have over 30 years of experience in Property Management that began in 1989 in Pleasanton, California as an accountant for developer / operator Callahan Property Company. I quickly migrated into a full-time, full-service property manager position, providing a diverse client list with services ranging from full service management, facilities and tenant improvement construction management, lease negotiations, and operational and capital improvement budgeting.

I joined Charter Properties in Pleasanton, CA in 1992 where I was responsible for the oversight of all aspects of Property Management services for a portfolio of office and light industrial space. I was instrumental in improving the overall value of the portfolio by approximately 15% during my tenure by developing streamlined operations for property R&M, enhanced tenant retention practices and prudent lease analysis and negotiations.

I relocated back to my home town of Fairbanks, Alaska in 1995 and joined Somers & Associates where I started up their Property Management Division. In the eight years building the Property Management Division, I grew from a single family residence management operation to a premier property management company that included over 200 residential units, two apartment complexes with a combined 130 units, and approximately 175,000 square feet of commercial office and retail space under management as well as various commercial leasing assignments. The highlight of my success at Somers & Associates was to develop a strategy for structured capital improvements and operational procedures for a 100 unit apartment complex which ultimately increased the property’s revenue and culminated in the sale of the complex for $2.3 million, doubling the original asking price.
