About

Professional Summary

I specialize in Office leasing and sales in the Indianapolis metropolitan market. During my commercial real estate career, I have earned a nod as one of the market’s top brokers – completing over $600 million in transaction volume and representing many of the area’s most notable projects.

I have extensive experience on the developer / landlord side, with a strong suit in the positioning and marketing of many product / class types. I enjoy orchestrating the advantageous elements of a property in a fresh approach – to best present a property’s full “unique” story.

I keep a pulse on the local market and greater industry trends. Consequently, I’ve become a go-to subject matter expert for local and national media – including the New York Times, Indianapolis Star, Indianapolis Business Journal, and other industry publications. 

Within a formal specialized team, we tackle sophisticated assignments with an exhaustive effort and consistent thoroughness. The team leverages in-depth market data – matched with proven strategies and strong negotiation skills – to assist clients in meeting their overall objectives. Energy, creative-thinking, and focus are notable strengths that have become part of my brand and has led to many long-term client relationships.

Previously with NAI Olympia Partners, I was consistently among the firm's top producing brokers, was the overall top producer for multiple years, and held a long-standing record within the firm for the most transactions within a year.  Most recently I was with Summit Realty Group/Cushman Wakefield, where I was also one of the firm’s top producing brokers and a partner/owner.

In my free time, I enjoy spending quality time with my wife and three daughters, exercising, and attending live music performances.
