First Vice President
License # 01903973
As a vice president based in Ontario, California, I have been with Colliers International since 2011. Specializing in industrial investment and user sales on small to medium industrial properties in the Inland Empire, I am committed to building collaborative and long-lasting relationships with my clients. Taking pride in going beyond client expectations throughout each transaction, I strive to overcome any obstacle by thinking outside the box. As a result, our team has built a reputation for being one of the most knowledgeable, resourceful and hardest working teams in the Inland Empire.
Prior to Colliers, I studied economics at Occidental College, gaining experience at several real estate firms along the way. At Colliers, my career has evolved to effectively support a variety of clients and deal types. From tenant representation to landlord representation, I have extensive experience in investment sales, tenant leasing, land deals, development opportunities and market analysis.
Whether in the office or outside of work, I am optimistic and outgoing—someone you can trust. I enjoy spending my free time with family and friends, who will tell you that I’m always up for an adventure or a game of golf, soccer or squash.

We began marketing our property in Rancho Cucamonga in the Spring of 2014. It was a well maintained 55,000 warehouse facility with a prime location. Our listing was placed with Lee & Associates. Lee is a fine professional firm that we have no specific issues with; however, we did not get any traffic to speak of nor did we get the feeling that there was any proportional marketing of the property. That being said after six months we made the decision to terminate our relationship with Lee and move the listing with Colliers.
Over the course of the next four to five months the property experienced high traffic as a result of a robust pin point marketing effort by Colliers. As opposed to our previous experience we were in constant contact with Brad Yates and Stefan Pastor no less than weekly and frequently two to three times per week. There was a continual focus to fine tune strategy, making the property visible to the target market and sharpen the price point all of which resulted in the ultimate sale of the property in late May of 2015. Concurrent with the sale process Colliers was also instrumental in assisting us with the purchase of 100,000 square foot facility. At the risk of sounding like we are heaping vague platitudes upon Colliers I can honestly say that their effort, knowledge of the market and startegy made the difference and resulted in a quick sale of the property. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly if there is any other information that i can provide.
Gregory A. Brown, Cheif Operating Officer
Executive Vice President
Los Angeles - Inland Empire
As a senior vice president for Colliers International, I have been based in the firm’s Ontario, CA, location in the Inland Empire since 2010. I concentrate primarily on mid-sized industrial properties for sale and lease, investment and off-market sales, along with specializing in the development of warehousing and distribution facilities throughout the area. Making sure to implement best strategies, I am directly involved in all aspects of assignment execution from the conception of marketing collateral to work product deliverables, property tours, tenant interface, client communications, negotiations and networking with brokers, owners and buyers to market our properties.
Before joining Colliers, I began my career in 2005 at Collins Commercial in Ontario, then moved to Grubb & Ellis, where I represented both landlords and tenants. Providing a full-service approach, I work to tailor each assignment around the specific needs, objectives and resources of each client. Known for being an honest and hardworking team with extensive knowledge of the Inland Empire, we make it a priority to put our clients first and take pride in each transaction we do.
I call South Orange County home, and while not at work I enjoy spending time with my wife and children and getting outdoors on my mountain bike.
Los Angeles - Inland Empire
Colliers International welcomed me in April 2018 as an associate in the Ontario, California office. My primary focus of expertise is owner/user representation for both lease and sale transactions in the mid-sized industrial range in the Inland Empire. When building inventory is low, I stop at nothing to bring off-market opportunities for my clients. I offer excellent service to my clients through research, market analysis, and dedication. I speak Spanish fluently which gives me an edge when dealing with Latin American businesses and owners.
Before joining Colliers international, I graduated from California State University Fullerton with a BFA in graphic design. I was very much involved with my creative side designing websites and elevating different businesses through branding and identification. Having a natural creative approach to problems enables me to work diligently and enjoy the fast paced life that Southern California offers.
When I’m not at work I spend my time at the local gem mines searching for treasure, along with my wife and kids. They’re always up for an adventure.
