Professional Summary

I  joined the Charlottesville office in 2018 as a Vice President. I was born in Central Virginia and raised in Albemarle County. Being raised in Central Virginia gives me an extensive knowledge of the real estate market here and allows me to find the perfect location for my clients.

My diverse assignments include manufacturing facilities, mixed office and industrial flex properties, build-to-suit projects, and the full range of warehouse and distribution requirements. I have also represented clients with out-of-market distribution / logistics ventures and have a solid understanding of multi-faceted elements required. I approach each assignment with diligence and a bottom-line mindset – determined to optimize the value of clients’ real estate transactions.

My territory  stretches along the Interstate 81 corridor, covering Central Virginia , The Shenandoah Valley and Southwest Virginia. My large territory allows me to have a regional understanding of the current state of the industrial real estate market.
