Executive Vice President
License # 364845
In a career spent serving my clients now spanning more than 30 years I have represented some of Austin’s largest and most financially complex transactions for companies such as IBM, Motorola, Charles Schwab, and Q2ebanking. I pride myself on the “service first” relationship with my clients. Valued by my clients, not as a transaction manager, but as a real estate consultant that is integrated into the fabric of the organization. Much of my career was spent at CBRE leading their number one tenant representation group. In 2006 I was offered the opportunity to become an owner and manage a boutique brokerage firm, HPI Corporate Services. Despite its small size, it became one of the most successful brokerage firms in Austin including having the number 1 and 3 brokers as ranked by the ABJ in 2011. In 2014 the opportunity to become a principal and Co-managing partner for Colliers Austin with all of its resources was too much to pass up. Since opening the office in Austin it has become the fastest growing brokerage company in the city. In 2014 and 2015, I was a Colliers' Everest Award recipient. This award is bestowed upon the top 10% of all Colliers professionals in brokerage, valuation and corporate solutions across the U.S. business based on revenue production.
