MICP, Greenship Professional, SIOR
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.

Brokerage Senior Vice President & Principal | Cincinnati
John joined Colliers International in 1992 and became one of the general partners in May 2002. As a Senior Sales Vice President, he is responsible for industrial sales, leasing and appraisals. John is very active as a leader in numerous professional and community activities.
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.
As a Marketing Assistant for the Greater Cincinnati Industrial Services group, Lauren is responsible for establishing strategic marketing plans for actively listed properties and future developments. Lauren also is responsible for creating property collateral, assembling presentations, and assisting in day-to-day administrative tasks.
