Professional Summary

I represent the interests of institutions, corporations and small businesses in the buying, selling and leasing industrial property. I have strong relationships with major developers, institutional and prominent private investors and corporate users throughout the entire metropolitan Chicago area.

My experience working for a developer and owner of industrial real estate enables me to assist my clients with lease evaluations and negotiations, site analysis, and financial/investment valuation. My advanced analytical skills combined with my practical understanding of the industry, bring a unique perspective to my clients and have proven to be integral to my success.

Since joining Colliers International in 2007, I have completed more than 500 transactions totaling a value in excess of $900 million. I recently completed a 366,000-square-foot sale for Johnson & Johnson and negotiated a 309,000-square-foot lease for Heartside Foods.

Prior to joining Colliers, I was a market representative with ProLogis, the world’s largest owner and developer of distribution facilities. At ProLogis, I was responsible for leasing and asset management of nearly 10 million square feet of industrial space. I was also involved in the sourcing of new acquisition opportunities.
