Professional Summary

I am the Vice President and Director of the Industrial Brokerage Group for Colliers in Columbia. I have experience in all aspects of industrial brokerage, including leasing, sales, build-to-suit, site acquisition, investment sales and consulting. I have been with Colliers since 1981 and have completed over a thousand transactions in my career. I am an expert in the industrial market and am proud to have represented many national and multi-national companies with their real estate needs in the Columbia market, including Knauf Insulation, United Technologies, Lennox Industries, Howden Buffalo, ESAB, Sony, RNDC, Interstate Resources and Mainline Express. I have also provided valuable consulting work, site acquisition and leasing services for many national developers, including Panatonni Development, Red Rock Developments, Kirco and Miller Valentine Group. 

I am inspired by the drive of my clients and customers to grow their business, create jobs and invest in our community. I enjoy the thrill of taking on the challenge to find real estate solutions for them to help them progress in their business goals. My experience in Columbia gives me a solid platform to deliver solutions that enable these companies to grow.


I am a Life Member of the Central Carolina REALTORS® Association (CCRA) Circle of Excellence. I received the CCRA Commercial Transaction of the Year Award in 1997, 2002 and 2013. I was named the overall Top Producing Agent in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 by CCRA.In 2017, I was named a CoStar Power Broker in industrial leasing transactions in Columbia, South Carolina.   

I have received numerous recognitions from Colliers | South Carolina for outstanding service. In 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2014, I was the recipient of the Walter M. Keenan Award, and I received an award for the largest industrial multi-city assignment (participant). I am also a seven-time recipient of the Colliers | South Carolina Production Award and have received Colliers | South Carolina’s President’s Award. 

I am past President of the Carolinas Chapter of the Society of Industrial and Office REALTORS® (SIOR) and am a member of the 2012, 2013 and 2014 Everest Club, recognizing the top ten percent of all Colliers brokers in the U.S.

I am a former chair of the Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital Board and former board member of the Congaree Land Trust. I am currently serving a three-year term on the City of Columbia Board of Zoning Appeals and currently Chair that Board.


I graduated from the University of South Carolina in 1979 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. I always wanted to be an entrepreneur and Colliers has allowed me to grow my platform of services as Colliers has stayed on the cutting edge of providing solutions to our clients and customers. 

I began with Colliers immediately upon graduation from college and have been here ever since. When I chose industrial brokerage as a specialty, there was a void in the central South Carolina industrial market, and I knew that I could develop not only the Colliers industrial sector but also work to develop Columbia’s industrial market into the thriving economy that it is today.
