Professional Summary

As a vice president with the Arizona Retail Services Team with Colliers International, I specialize in the sale and leasing of retail properties, land acquisition and disposition, retail property disposition and retail development. I represent both landlords and tenants and place great value in establishing long-term relationships with my clients.

My platform of services includes property sales, lease negotiations, tenant representation, lease renewal and renegotiation, site evaluation and selection; demographic and market analysis, space planning, and negotiation of tenant improvement allowances. 

Working closely with landlords, I develop property leasing strategies that maximize operating income and minimize vacancies. To achieve my clients’ business and financial objectives, I carefully guide tenants through the process of identifying their requirements, site selection and lease negotiations.

As a skilled negotiator with in-depth knowledge of the marketplace, I am committed to helping clients make strategic real estate decisions for their businesses. Clients benefit from my 35 years of retail real estate experience.

I have specialized in retail properties since beginning my career in commercial real estate in 1983. My experience includes 14 years with Grubb & Ellis four years with Koll. In 1997, I joined Insignia/ESG, which was acquired by Colliers International in 2003.
