As an industrial sales and leasing associate in Northern Nevada, I am happy to apply the skills that I developed as a leading retail associate over the last several years. In my retail role, I harnessed my industry knowledge and provided exceptional value to my clients. My extensive client list includes some of the most prominent owners, tenants, and developers in the area such as Shopoff Realty Investments, ALS Geochemical, and McKenzie Development. I have successfully leased and sold property ranging from small single-tenant suites to large multi-parcel shopping centers.
Due to the adjusting marketplace post COVID, traditional retailers are adapting and merging with industrial and supply chain opportunities to narrow the gap between manufacturer and consumer. I saw an opportunity to add value to my clients and change my focus to industrial services. My services include industrial landlord and tenant representation and investment sales in which I bring a pragmatic and analytical approach.
Prior to joining Colliers, I spent nine years in the retail automotive industry where I developed in depth knowledge of the Northern Nevada community as well as the rewards and challenges associated with small business.
As a former flight instructor and airline pilot I have a keen interest in the integration of complex systems, processes and human factors. A lifetime of self-discipline, attention to detail, and continuous evaluation helps me realize my client’s overarching business objectives. Delivering the counsel and services necessary for true ‘win-win’ transactions is my goal.
