Professional Summary

A seasoned commercial real estate advisor in Southern California, I focus on properties in densely populated multicultural and Hispanic markets. In particular, I specialize in retail development, redevelopment, strategic planning and consulting services for owners, retailers and municipalities.

Before joining Colliers, I was with CBRE in Southern California for 14 years. I have been unrivaled throughout my career in the sale, leasing and development of commercial properties in multicultural and Hispanic trade areas throughout California. I have assisted numerous regional, national and international occupiers and, to date, I have been involved in more than 65 shopping center developments that together total more than 6 million square feet.

Over the years, I have developed an impeccable reputation and track record for closing transactions on behalf of both private and institutional landlords and tenants, as well as handling the sale of investment properties. I have also been involved in the sourcing, planning, development and marketing of multiple high-profile projects in Southern California.

Before getting into the brokerage side of commercial real estate, I served as director of acquisitions and leasing for Comstock, Crosser and Associates Development Co., a development company based in Manhattan Beach, CA. There, I was responsible for identifying and acquiring commercial properties for redevelopment, assembling development sites and expansion of Top Valu and Valu + Food Warehouse grocery chains.
