Professional Summary

My interest in real estate began at an early age watching my mother build a successful career as a residential agent. After joining Grubb & Ellis Company as an intern in 1997, I developed my passion for the office and investment sales arena. I like to be very active and have a hands-on understanding of the market. Office leasing and sales requires me to be consistently on top of the ever-changing real estate landscape. Knowing what is going on in the market is not enough to provide the exceptional and service my clients have come to expect from my team and me. To accomplish and surpass our clients’ goals, we analyze historical data, stay educated on CRE trends, and forecast future market activity.

Having open and constant lines of communication while actively listening to my client’s needs is the most important part of having a successful partnership. My approach is simple: listen to what the client needs/wants verse telling them what I think they need/want, all while leveraging my 17 years of experience. Excellent communication and business acumen have enhanced my ability to structure creative real estate solutions for complex situations. No matter the project or assignment, I always aim to exceed my client’s expectations while developing a partnership based on clear communication and mutual respect. My clients depend on my creativity, diligence, and ability to deliver results.

My determination to surpass expectations and provide top-notch service is evident in the evolution of 555 Capitol Mall. After selling the property at 56% occupancy, my team and I worked diligently to lease up the remaining space. In a brief period, we leased 90% of the space at stronger rents than projected. 555 Capitol Mall had its own challenges, as does every project. Transacting real estate is not hard, finding space is not difficult, but being creative, innovative and aggressive while protecting every cent is a challenge I engage in every day. My true “WE” effort with a passionate attitude positions my clients for success.

The amount of available sublease space across the market increased 73 percent since the end of March to 962,393 square feet, the highest level seen since Q2 2009.
