After spending the previous five years as a Research Analyst for the Cincinnati, Cleveland and Dayton Colliers offices, I recently transitioned into a Brokerage Associate role with Colliers International | Greater Cincinnati. I work in the industrial sector to provide both landlord and tenant representation for users throughout the Greater Cincinnati market.
As an Economics major at The University of Cincinnati, my analytical studies allowed me to look at market data differently than other real estate professionals. This background helps me to provide my clients a different view of the market. In turn, this allows them to make better and more informed real estate decisions.
I am highly involved in the commercial real estate industry and in my community. I am a member of the University of Cincinnati Real Estate Roundtable and work with the co-op and real estate programs at local colleges to provide real estate experience to students. I also donate countless hours of my time to various charity organizations around the city. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling, exercising and playing sports.
I enjoy every day I get to work in this industry and am appreciative for all the relationships I’ve made so far in my career. The excitement of learning and meeting so many wonderful people is what keeps me going and makes me love commercial real estate.

Brokerage Senior Vice President | Cincinnati
In 2006 I left a successful 13-year career that I loved as an Environmental Consultant. I left because I listened to what my clients told me about myself unsolicited. They saw in me that my business sense and natural competitiveness coupled with my genuine passion for helping people was “made for commercial real estate”.
I am thorough and detail-oriented as I am driven by the need to not disappoint my clients, I always have their best interests at heart. My professional relationships often times become personal friendships because I am sincere in wanting to do whatever it takes to not only meet a client’s requirements but to surpass their expectations, regardless of the amount of square footage. I am fiercely loyal and in turn receive the same from my clients. Most of my transactions result in future business with the same people or are born out of their recommendations.
I listen to my client’s needs and ideas and present them with options. However, what makes me different than other brokers is that I invest myself into the people and company in which I am helping. We work as partners, their priorities become my priorities, and we have continual open and honest dialogue so we can minimize the stress that is sometimes present in having to consider moving and/or negotiating. I am well versed in current industrial market conditions in the Greater Cincinnati market and the process of leasing and buying/selling buildings, which allow me to work as an advisor to clients, not just as a person submitting a list of potential locations.

I specialize in creating innovative solutions and competitive advantages for my clients. I am a seasoned real estate professional and have a long history of successful transactions over 100,000 SF. I focus on cities and properties along the I-75 corridor in KY and OH. This area has become extremely vibrant and I’m proud to have contributed to its growth. Over the past 30 years, I’ve completed more than 325 transactions totaling more than 40 million SF and valued at over $400 million to date. Long-term clients include Delphi, Gap, W. P. Carey, and General Motors.
I am a natural born connector and love negotiating on behalf of my clients. There’s nothing I like better than solving problems. I have a large network of real estate professionals that I am continually developing and expanding. I serve in leadership roles with SIOR (Society of Office & Industrial Realtors, an educational international association of 3,000 brokers, developers, and investors), and am members of the elite Colliers Logistics and Transportation Solutions Group, and CSCMP (Counsel of Supply Chain Management Professionals). As I tell my family and friends, everything comes down to logistics!
I am known for my deep real estate knowledge of the Greater Cincinnati area, my persistence, representing my clients the way they want to be represented, and operating at all times with honesty and integrity.
