I specialize in leasing, user sales and investment sales of industrial properties.
Since a young age, I have had a profound interest in and exposure to commercial real estate. I have long found industrial brokerage to be intriguing because it serves as the foundation of many different types of businesses and processes. It is very rewarding to have the opportunity to play a role in the goals and progress of each of our clients as a trusted industrial services advisor.
In 2022, I earned the Society of Industrial and Office REALTORS® (SIOR) designation. I have been recognized as a CoStar Power Broker in industrial leasing transactions in Columbia, SC every year since 2017. I have received numerous awards through Colliers | SC including the Rising Star Award in 2018, the Service Excellence Award in 2020 and the Top 10 Producers Award in 2020. In 2018, 2019 and 2020, I received the Central Carolina REALTORS® Association Commercial Circle of Excellence Award and also recevied CCRA’s Sales Transaction of the Year Award in 2020. Additionally, I was part of the team that earned SIOR’s worldwide 2020 Top Industrial and Investment Transaction Awards.
Over the course of my career, I have participated in transactions totaling 20.5 million square feet, valued at over $500 million.
I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics.
In 2014, I joined Colliers | South Carolina as an intern, conducting research for quarterly market reports, special projects and case studies in the three major markets in South Carolina for two years before transitioning to brokerage. I find that my exposure to market data and establishing relationships with many of the professionals I continue to work with today, while working in the research department at Colliers, provides a valuable foundation into identifying market trends and creative deal making from the brokerage perspective.

I am a 2021 graduate of Leadership Columbia. I am a member of Christ School’s Alumni Council and serve on the Board of Directors for RED Atlas, a commercial real estate data and analytics company focused on serving emerging markets.
While attending the University of South Carolina, I served on the planning committee for the annual Game Ball Run, which raises money for the Marcus Lattimore Foundation and Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Additionally, I was also involved with the Caribbean Youth Network, a program that provides shelter, food, sports facilities and equipment for youth on Long Island in the Bahamas.
I have experience in all aspects of industrial brokerage including: leasing, sales, build-to-suit, site acquisition, investment sales and consulting. I have been with Colliers since 1981 and have completed over 1,500 transactions in my career. I am an expert in the industrial market and am proud to have represented many national and international companies with their real estate needs in the greater Columbia market. I have also provided valuable consulting work, site acquisition and leasing services for many national developers including: Magnus Development Partners, Scannell Properties, Collett Industrial, Panatonni Development, Red Rock Development, Kirco and Miller Valentine Group.
I am inspired by the drive of my clients and customers to grow their businesses, create jobs and invest in our community. I enjoy the thrill of taking on the challenge to find real estate solutions for them to help them progress their business goals. My experience in Columbia gives me a solid platform to deliver solutions that enable these companies to grow.
As part of the Colliers platform of services, I serve both tenants and landlords with their respective industrial needs. I assist tenants with comprehensive site selection, acquisitions and dispositions and lease negotiations. In addition, I offer similar services to institutional landlords, which include strategic planning, detailed reporting and market analysis, marketing and lease/sale negotiations. I work with an integral team and find that our teamwork is one of our biggest advantages in completing deals for our clients that exceed their expectations.
Working in industrial brokerage, I have the opportunity to see the vast progress of companies and help to play a part in a client’s business development. I find that, for me, success is finding the best possible outcome for a client within their constraints and knowing that I have brought significant value to their growth.
Senior Brokerage Associate
I am a Senior Brokerage Associate in our Columbia office working with the industrial brokerage team of Chuck Salley, SIOR, Dave Mathews, SIOR and Thomas Beard, SIOR. I focus on and specialize in leasing, sales, build-to-suit projects, site acquisition and investment sales for investors, developers and tenants looking in central South Carolina.
Industrial brokerage offers a runway for creative thinking and problem solving for clients’ and customers’ needs. At the conclusion of a deal, we have not only assisted our clients in achieving their goals, but also assisted companies in maximizing their productivity and profitability in the same breath. In doing so, we get to play a role in growing businesses in our community and stimulating the local and regional economy. This is a reward that few other careers can offer.
