License # 01260682
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.

Executive Vice President
On your journey to find the perfect space for your business, I am your advisor, advocate, confidante, and ally. Whatever your real estate need may be, wherever your destination, your vision is my mission. Landlords, tenants, building owners, and users rely on me and my partners to create leverage through negotiation to get them the best opportunity to achieve their long and short term goals. I work with each of my user clients to understand the benefits of buying vs. leasing and determine which option is best for their business. I help my clients see everyone’s cards on the table, without showing any other players our hand.
Whether you’re looking to increase your building value in Roseville, stabilize your occupancy Downtown, reposition your asset for sale in Natomas or source your next acquisition in Campus Commons, my partners and I have the connections and capabilities to ensure success. When working with building owners, I optimize exposure for their buildings, secure high quality tenants, and achieve and maintain high levels of occupancy – maximize value!. I help clients analyze their real estate assets to determine effective acquisition and disposition strategies.
I enjoy giving back to the community through organizations that touch matters close to my friends and family such as The Jenna & Patrick Foundation of Hope, Albie Aware Breast Cancer Foundation, and Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. As a native Sacramentan, I enjoy all that the area has to offer with my wife and two children whether it be relaxing in Lake Tahoe, golfing, or enjoying a summer BBQ.

Executive Vice President
Landlords and Tenants rely on me for market knowledge, honest advice, and creativity to adeptly navigate their real estate needs in the Greater Sacramento area. I understand that real estate is a significant component to my client’s business and brand. For owner-users and tenants, the office space can significantly drive employee retention and satisfaction. Together, we find real estate solutions that match your culture and suit your long-term goals. With my partners at Colliers, we help our clients make informed decisions that make the most sense for their business needs.
After almost two decades in commercial real estate and over 30 years living in the Greater Sacramento Area, I have developed strong knowledge of the local submarkets. Through ongoing correspondence with outside brokers, I offer current and relevant market knowledge. Throughout this experience, I have learned that being a good advisor requires much more than simply understanding the market or deal analysis. By understanding the inner-workings of your business and the bigger picture, we can position you for success.
Outside of Colliers, I spend my time with my two children and wife. In the winter, you can find us skiing and snowboarding in Tahoe. During the warmer months, we enjoy camping and mountain biking. My passion for non-profit work has lead me to become an active member of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society where I have been on the Man & Woman of the Year Committee since 2003.
Since 2007, I have worked alongside Tom Walcott, Jason Rutherford, Kris Reilly, and Scott Bennett providing honest and intelligent guidance to local and regional owners of office property throughout the Sacramento Area. Working with integrity, I handle my client’s commercial real estate needs as if they were my own.
While pursuing my own smaller tenant, landlord, and investor projects, I also provide support to my partners through the coordination of marketing, contracts, and transaction management. Through this experience, I have developed significant knowledge of the procedures necessary to transact a real estate deal.
Within Sacramento Brokerage, I oversee the research department. In this role, I manage the creation of our quarterly market reports, gather and distribute information regarding deals and market activity, and provide our brokers with tools and knowledge to help them better service their clients. This opportunity has made me more aware of market activity and the trends that affect all specialties such as industrial and retail commercial real estate. I can provide a more unique perspective to my clients than those who focus on one market sector.
My greatest accomplishment in life is being a father to my two daughters. I am actively involved in their extra-curricular activities including coaching softball & soccer and being a founding board member of Land Park Softball.
