Professional Summary

I specialize in the sale and leasing of industrial properties in the San Francisco East Bay Area, including San Leandro, Hayward and Union City.  As an industrial broker, my first priority is to thoroughly understand my client’s business requirements and concerns.  A careful understanding of these concerns combined with my experience and knowledge of the market makes it possible to deliver creative, unexpected solutions even in the face of the current unprecedented demand for space. 

Over 26 years, my accrued transactions have exceeded 6 million square feet for clients such as ABC Roofing, Ikon Office Solutions, Mercury Marine Corporation, Riddell/All American Sports Corporation, Sugar Bowl Bakery, Dal-Tile, Inc., Wells Fargo Bank Real Estate & Specialty Assets, and Performance Contracting, Inc.  I have worked extensively along the I-880 corridor with packaged and palletized food distribution companies to address their warehousing and distribution requirements, including the manufacturing process and cold storage. In addition, I have represented numerous Asian food companies with their Bay Area warehousing needs.

Whether representing a landlord or tenant, my intention is to be responsive, reliable and detail-oriented every step of the way.  My goal is to take the real estate burden off my clients so they can focus on effectively operating their businesses.  I value the client relationships I have developed over so many years and get real satisfaction seeing my clients set up for continued growth and success.

When I am not working I enjoy reading, running and surfing.  I live in Oakland with my wife Tracy and have four children.
