Associate Vice President
As Associate Vice President with Colliers International, my primary focus is assisting clients in the acquisition and disposition of multifamily properties throughout the Midwest with an emphasis on West Michigan.
My investment sales career spans over a decade with a total transaction volume exceeding $400 Million. My specialty lies in helping our clients maximize sale proceeds during the transaction process, but my team prides ourselves on our ability to deliver data driven market knowledge and trends to our clients throughout the life cycle of a property. As a property investor myself, I am able to view each assignment through multiple lenses to achieve the best results for my clients. My client list includes small and large developers, private equity funds, family trusts, and international investors. I have sold numerous properties to first time international buyers and maintain a network of contacts that extends far beyond the Midwest.
My entire professional life has been focused on multifamily investment properties and I pride myself on delivering a hands-on, personal approach that has developed long-lasting business relationships with my clients. My team is focused on understanding our clients, their company, their long-term objectives, and being a true solutions-based adviser on their side of the table.
