My current brokerage practice is focused on corporate services, providing real estate consultation to public and private entities. One of my largest accounts is the local transportation entity, the Jacksonville Transportation Authority. I manage both their surplus disposition efforts and their acquisition strategy. Their portfolio is valued at over $30 million. I provide a wide range of services, including but not limited to property sales, property acquisition, market analysis, lease analysis, government affairs and general market intelligence. I am frequently involved with executive level discussions and interact with their Board regularly. Additionally, I represent the St. Vincent’s Hospital Ministry for Ascension Health here locally. I manage dispositions, acquisitions and their income and expense leasing activities. My largest national account is Torchmark/Liberty National. I work with their Director of Real Estate to identify new office space for their insurance brokers across the country.

I am a native born JacksonvillIian. I attended Stanton College Preparatory School before graduating from Florida State University in 1997 with a B.S. in Political Science. After school, I moved to Washington, D.C. to begin a career in politics. After stops in multiple Congressional offices, the Republican National Committee, FEMA and a government affairs firm, I was given the opportunity to begin a career in real estate back home in Jacksonville in 2005. Working for a small development firm, we  developed 50,000+ square feet of Class A  office condominiums throughout Northeast Florida. I was the lead on bank and investor negotiations for investment capital and loan arrangements.

I was called to duty once more in D.C., taking a position as Executive Director of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Political Affairs Department from January 2012 until October 2014. I managed the program’s voter education campaigns and political intelligence gathering.

As a licensed Broker and member of the  North Florida Multifamily Investment and Land Services Team, I bring a client focused, value-add approach designed to exceed client expectations.

In this capacity, I am involved  in all aspects of the deal process including client engagement, asset valuation/underwriting, financial modeling, market research, due diligence, property tours and facilitation of client communication. My goal is growing the Multifamily Investment Sales Platform and the Team’s market presence by providing first class services in Jacksonville and tertiary markets throughout  North Florida.

As a Jacksonville resident for over 20 years, I have seen Northeast Florida grow substantially. Working in the real estate industry provides me with an opportunity to assist in that growth. For over 10 years I have assisted owners, investors and developers with the acquisition and disposition of real property.
