Senior Vice President | Principal
I am a licensed real estate salesperson, licensed attorney and licensed auctioneer with a multidisciplinary background in legal, commercial real estate, finance, leasing, due diligence, construction, government, planning, zoning and consulting. Additionally, I have served as court appointed receiver or agent to receiver in 12 Ohio counties and in Federal Court. Those companies seeking a professional to handle all aspects of a complex commercial real estate assignment would be well-served by engaging me and my team of real estate professionals at Colliers International. Careful, thorough analysis and creative problem solving skills coupled with a balanced approach to negotiations are some of the dynamic attributes I possess when representing clients of the firm.
I am a frequent lecturer on topics of commercial real estate and auction law with appearances on all major Cleveland news stations, The O'Reilly Factor, Plain Dealer, Crain's Cleveland Business, and other local media. I have authored numerous articles relating to the state of commercial real estate.
