Vice President & Director of Retail Services Team
As Vice President and Director of the Retail Services Team for Colliers International | South Carolina, I specialize in the sale, leasing and development consultation of retail properties across the state. I manage the retail team, which delivers retail brokerage and consultation services to clients through Colliers’ four South Carolina offices.
I pride myself in my ability to maintain excellent communication with my clients throughout the entire real estate process and even after a transaction is completed. I find that success in my work is defined by making sure that when it is all said and done my clients had an enjoyable and profitable experience. I consider my relationship with my clients as a partnership to help them achieve their goals.
I have served the Central Carolina REALTORS Association in many ways over the years, including being its Commercial Chair from 1999-2000. I am also an active member in the International Council of Shopping Centers, serving as the State Operations Chair from 2003-2006 and Chairman of the Carolina’s Idea Exchange in 2006. I have served on the Colliers International U.S. Retail Services Group as its National Chairman. I received the Clearly Colliers Award in 2003, Colliers Chairman’s Choice Award in 2004 and participated in the largest retail multi-city assignment in Colliers in 2006. In 2017, I was recognized as a CoStar Power Broker for being a top retail leasing broker in Columbia, South Carolina. In 2018, I received the Colliers | South Carolina Production Award for being a Top 10 Producer.
Originally from Greenville, SC, I graduated from the University of South Carolina in 1983 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Marketing and Management. I always knew that I wanted to be in a business that allowed me to help shape communities and have an impact on the commercial real estate landscape. What led me to retail brokerage was my desire to duplicate the feeling that people get when they travel to a new place. I realized that this feeling is largely based on the role retail spaces play in creating that atmosphere or sense of place in a community.
