Professional Summary

As a senior executive vice president, I specialize in the leasing and sale of commercial office and R&D buildings. My focus is to manage the transaction process in a way that solves complex real estate situations and maximizes value for my clients.

As a resourceful and determined person, I am someone who takes true satisfaction in helping my clients solve problems. My clients appreciate that I am calm and straightforward throughout the process, and that I consider situations from every angle to come up with the best, most suitable solution for their real estate needs.

Even after two decades in the industry, commercial real estate continues to intrigue me. I enjoy working in an industry that touches all aspects of the economy, one that is so multifaceted that nearly every business relies on it to thrive.
