Professional Summary

I am an industrial market leader in the San Francisco East Bay area specializing in the disposition, acquisition, and leasing of distribution, manufacturing, & e-commerce warehouse properties. Focused on the San Francisco East Bay, I advise the region’s leading institutional owners and occupiers with their complex real estate challenges. After 30+ years in commercial real estate, I find the work more interesting than ever as the industry continues to evolve in unprecedented ways.

My clients are enterprising professionals who inspire me to bring the same standard of excellence to the services I provide.  Over my career, I have been involved in more than $2 billion in transactions for clients such as Prologis, UPS, Black Creek Group, and LINK Industrial. 

As a fiduciary to my client, my priority is to thoroughly understand their needs, concerns, and goals, allowing me to adeptly anticipate needs, mitigate risk, and creatively problem solve. Whether representing a landlord or occupier, my responsibility is to find the smartest, safest, and most profitable solution for my client--delivered with efficiency and transparency. 

As demand for Bay Area industrial space continues to grow, it is essential for me to stay abreast of technological advances and remain curious about the evolving industry trends.  Actively involved in the SIOR Northern California chapter, I engage often with thought leaders in the brokerage industry across the country.   I value this collaboration and the culture at Colliers allows me to join forces with some great people in markets across the US and beyond.

Outside the office, I enjoy outdoor actives, biking, skiing, and golf.  I have been involved in many community activities in Layette where I live with my wife Pam and two children.
