Professional Summary

As the financial analyst for the Cooke Multifamily Team with Collliers International, I analyze and underwrite each property’s financial performance, breaking down and evaluating the rent roll and trailing 12-month P&L statement to determine valuation.

The Cooke Multifamily Team specializes in Class A and B multifamily investments nationwide. Our top-producing team includes Cindy Cooke, Brad Cooke, Chris Roach, Matt Roach, Thomas Brophy, Aimee Healy and Kellyanne Kennedy.

I collect and review property operating data and prepare detailed property analyses for investment evaluation, and create financial models to support and guide acquisition and disposition decisions. I evaluate opportunities to improve the financial performance of assets, such as renovations, expense reduction, operational efficiencies and raising rents. My tailored approach helps maximize investor value.

Through in-depth analysis of sales and rent comps, demographics, and historical financial statements, I gauge the feasibility of investments. I also provide support for return on investment decisions, including IRR, cash-on-cash and equity multiple calculations, and stay current on financial markets and financing options.

A consummate professional, I pride myself on being thorough, analytical and detail-oriented, and am committed to delivering results with the highest degree accuracy. I bring more than five years of multifamily real estate experience, with three years of underwriting and business development and two years of property management.

Prior to joining Colliers, I served as a business development consultant for Grand Peaks in Bogota, Colombia. Headquartered in Denver. Grand Peaks delivers a comprehensive range of multifamily real estate services. I played a key role in establishing Grand Peaks’ first Latin American office in Bogota, as well as developing a local management company named AUNA. I was responsible for day-to-day operations and managing the local team.

As the business development consultant, I underwrote and analyzed potential projects, inspected financial documents, and performed physical due diligence and inspection of potential acquisitions. I sourced and structured new projects, monitored and analyzed key demographic and economic trends, and compiled weekly and monthly financial and construction reports.

The Bogota office built 6,000 square meters of mixed-use for sale condos and structured and implemented a logistics project with more than 25,000 square meters of industrial, office and commercial space.

Previously, I served as an assistant community manager and leasing consultant for Grand Peaks, Greenwood Village in Colorado.
