Executive Managing Director, Land Services
I have successfully pursued a land brokerage career in Orlando for over 30 years. The focus of my practice is the representation of important landowners, taking an innovative and enthusiastic approach to maximizing value. I have also been involved with many acquisition and assemblage activities.
Some of the area’s largest land transactions have occurred due to my efforts. Developing the first phases of Cypress Park as a partner, building designer, owner, leasing and management agent was terrific learning experience. These efforts added considerably to my skills and knowledge of land resource economics.
In the 1990’s, my father and I purchased Lambert Smith Hampton’s Orlando office. With an excellent team of Orlando area commercial brokers we built the sales volume and property management portfolio of this firm. I then engineered a sale of the firm to the Pizzuti organization and repositioned myself in land-owner representation.
In 1998 I joined Colliers International. Recent transactions include a seven tract assemblage for Mears Transportation at $2,990,000, a sale for the Kissimmee CRA at $900,000, Heritage Commons at $1.8 million, Dr. Phillips 45 acres at $16 million, Greenway South at $10.55 million and the Weingarten / Whole Foods ground lease at $10 million, among others.
Friends and colleagues know me as a fun-loving, intelligent, ethical and resourceful professional. I humorously note this is my fourth recovery here and see myself as a true fiduciary agent for our clients, in the best, old-fashioned meaning of that role.
