As a Senior Vice President, I specialize in in retail leasing and brokerage, specifically tenant representation and the acquisition of land assets. My expertise extends to all types of properties, from neighborhood strip centers to regional shopping centers.

In my 22 years of commercial real estate, I have made it a goal to understand the specific needs of my owner, developer and tenant clients. I have helped many prominent local and national clients identify appropriate trade areas for their growth plans.

With each and every transaction, I like to bring an honest and straightforward approach to the table.  My retail experience in the commercial real estate industry has resulted in exceptional market knowledge that my clients find invaluable.
