Throughout his career, Mr. Herder has assisted a broad range of clients with their real estate needs. He combines an engineering background and strong skills in financial analysis with more than 35 years of experience to help his clients achieve their real estate goals. He has completed major assignments in the fields of office leasing, industrial sales/leases and investment sales.
