About

Professional Summary

I am responsible for the collection of market data and the interpretation and reporting of key research insights for the state of South Carolina. I produce and distribute approximately 65 market reports per year for various property types including office, industrial, retail, multifamily, hotel, construction and parking. I manage research interns who collect the data for market reports and other projects. I am responsible for coordinating with regional and national researchers to produce branded thought leadership content. I am also involved in on-demand research projects for brokers and their clients as well as research initiatives related to the expansion of Colliers’ corporate services and advisory offerings across South Carolina. I strive to be an asset by providing the highest level of market intelligence. 

My experience in commercial real estate administration gives me a deeper understanding of the terminology and real estate processes, allowing me to provide the highest quality of research services to Colliers’ clients.

Accomplishments

In 2019, I completed the Commercial Property Research Certification (CPRC) program through Colliers University which certifies increased strategic and tactical expertise in research, knowledge of the commercial real estate industry and capabilities to utilize complex tools.

In 2012, I received the Colliers | South Carolina President’s Award which recognizes a member of the company who has excelled in their role and made a meaningful impact on others.

Education

Before working at Colliers, I worked as a residential real estate agent with investment properties in South Carolina where I gained valuable knowledge of the real estate industry that I can apply to my work at Colliers. Prior to joining the research team at Colliers | South Carolina, I served as the Executive Assistant and ReApplications (CoStar Brokerage Applications) administrator for 12 years, where I supported the brokerage teams with the administration of the lease document process and production of proposal materials for the market leader and brokerage associates. Due to my high attention to detail, organizational skills and overall market knowledge, I was promoted to Research Coordinator for Colliers’ four South Carolina offices in 2017 and was promoted to Research Manager in 2022.
