Vice President

Phoenix

As a vice president with Colliers International in Arizona, I specialize in representing the interests of companies that lease office space. My agenda is to provide the highest level of service to my clients, while securing significant financial savings and lease flexibility on their behalf.

Comprehensive services include strategic planning, market evaluation, site selection, financial analysis, transaction management and construction management.

As a Phoenix native with more than a decade of brokerage experience, I have developed a thorough understanding of the metro Phoenix real estate market. I carefully guide clients in making well thought-out real estate decisions that support their long-term business goals.

I have arranged lease transactions (acquisitions, relocations, renewals, restructurings and disposition assignments) for a wide range of corporate clients. I bring extensive experience in corporate real estate, having conducted transactions on behalf of clients across the United States.

Prior to joining Colliers, I was a member of the Corporate Services platform with CBRE in Phoenix for nine years. My business development initiatives resulted in some of Phoenix’s most significant office leases during my tenure. While at CBRE, I specialized in tenant representation and managed business development strategy for a four-person brokerage team, before taking my practice independent within CBRE in 2015.

My real estate career began as a research analyst at Grubb & Ellis BRE/Cassidy Turley in 2008, before transitioning to a brokerage role in 2009.
