A day in Commercial Real Estate is like a round of golf – and I wouldn’t change it for anything. Each shot - just like each landlord and tenant requirement - is different, there is an abundance of hard work, focus and fun to be had, and the relationships last a lifetime. Each real estate decision, just like each golf hole, provides both opportunities and challenges. Our experienced team at Colliers International navigates these hazards to help maximize the value of property for real estate owners, occupiers and investors, while taking into consideration our clients' short and long-term business goals and objectives.

Since I have a passion for attending many concerts, I will compare attending a live concert to serving industrial real estate clients: It's enjoyable being an expert in these two fields, no two journeys are the same, there are always unpredictable elements, and it’s rewarding to forge friendships in the process! I have a team of experienced experts within Colliers, whom my clients rely on to help them make various important real estate decisions, with a lot on the line. Every day is different in this industry, and, just like concerts, this industry is “lively”. That is why I enjoy every day I get to spend working in Commercial Real Estate, with the emphasis on helping new and old friends make important commercial real estate decisions.
