Professional Summary

As a Commercial Real Estate expert, passionate about delivering exceptional service, I pride myself on not only my depth of experience in the Silicon Valley market, but the relationships I have built.

My role as Executive Vice President focuses on tenant representation across the Bay Area, specializing in the Life Sciences and Technology sectors. I bring to my clients not only a wealth of relationships and experience, but creative strategies to deliver them solutions that match their needs both now, and into the future.

I am an agile operator, partnering with both emerging and market leading tenants, helping navigate through what is often a complex process, with ease and support. Throughout my career I have built a litany of resources, exclusively available to my clients, to facilitate transitions into new spaces and maximize efficiencies.

My track record speaks to my negotiation experience with lease and building sales transactions totaling; over 13 million square feet and over $8 billion in total consideration.

With more than 30 years experience representing a broad range of commercial tenants, I pride myself on my commitment to not only transact on behalf of my clients but also to align as a strategic partner to their interests and property strategy.

Consistently recognized as a top performer within my field at Colliers International and by the Silicon Valley Broker Association, I credit my success to an unwavering commitment to my clients and my ability to evolve and adapt strategy to meet the shifts within the market.
