Professional Summary

I joined Colliers in 2011 as a Senior Brokerage Associate, specializing in investment sales. Although my principal concentration is investment sales, I also consult with and represent clients requiring assistance with corporate services, medical facilities and retail development brokerage.

With experience analyzing and evaluating market trends and trade-areas in 17 states, I combine my local market knowledge with my multi-market experience to create customized real estate solutions for my clients.


I am a member of the Central Carolina REALTORS® Association (CCRA), South Carolina REALTORS® Association (SCRA), National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) and the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC). I have been recognized numerous times for outstanding production and am a Life Member of the CCRA Circle of Excellence. In 2001, I was recognized as the recipient of the CCRA Real Estate Transaction of the Year Award.



I started my 40-year career in real estate as manager of an 18-story apartment building in Columbia’s Central Business District. My father, who was an owner/developer of shopping centers and condominium developments in the Carolinas, employed me as a leasing agent/property manager representing landlords of anchored shopping centers. In 1982, I joined Edens & Avant, Inc. as a brokerage associate, closing new developments in the Carolinas and Georgia, including Walmart development sites, Sam’s Club, Blockbuster Video, Dollar General and numerous movie theaters, fast food and fine-dining restaurants. 

In 1995, I was given the opportunity to serve as Senior Vice President for a new publicly-traded retailer with 87 stores in six states located along the east coast. After three years, we expanded the chain via new store openings and acquisitions to 281 stores in 17 states and subsequently sold our chain to a competitor.  Returning to brokerage, I have specialized in investment sales for the past 20 years, including the past eleven years at Colliers International. I have closed investment transactions comprised of single-tenant retail properties, shopping centers of 20,000 to 200,000 square feet, multifamily apartments, business parks, medical properties and office buildings, all totaling 1.5 million square feet and $95 million in transactions.

I graduated from Wofford College, a private college located in the upstate of South Carolina, with a degree in Economics.

I am also an active member of Eastminster Presbyterian Church, Forest Lake Club and the Columbia Sailing Club.
