Senior Property Manager
As Property Manager for Colliers International, I'm currently responsible for the management of a portfolio of retail shopping centers located within the Bay Area where I oversee all aspects of property management including operations, tenant relations, vendor oversight and financial reporting.
I joined Colliers in 2015 with more than ten years of experience managing retail, office and industrial properties for institutional and private equity clients. Prior to joining Colliers, I worked for such firms as Equity Office, JLL and River Rock Real Estate Group where I was responsible for the management of several institutional grade projects such as the Pruneyard Shopping Center and Office Towers, Skyport Plaza and the Clorox Building, a 24-story Class-A high-rise project with retail on the two lower levels.
My professional experience includes building operations management, preparation of budgets, CAM reconciliations and financial reporting, overseeing capital improvements as well as establishing and maintaining strong tenant and client relations. I am also experienced with managing distressed assets for loan servicers such as Wells Fargo Bank and LNR Property Corporation where I successfully reduced operating costs while recovering revenues from defaulted tenants.
In addition to my commercial real estate experience, I spent three years with Keller Williams Real Estate where I worked closely with my clients on the purchase and sale of residential investment properties as well as primary residences. I received the “Rookie of the Month” award for my strong sales record and fostering client growth.
I hold a State of California Real Estate License and I am a graduate of California State University, Hayward, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with an option in Corporate Management and Marketing. I'm currently working to complete the Real Property Administrator (RPA) designation with BOMI International.
