I specialize in the sale of various investment property types throughout South Carolina as well as development parcels located in the Lowcountry.

Most of my clients are investors and developers many of which are institutional and high net worth individuals. My market knowledge, analytical nature, relationship network and experience in the industry are what sets me apart from other commercial real estate brokers. I pride myself on being able to present options and recommendations that suit both sides of a transaction. 

I find my job to be rewarding when a client sees the value that I delivered to a transaction, they have recognized my work as an integral component of their success, and they acknowledge that my services have exceeded their expectations. 

Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, I spent years as a C-suite finance executive for various industrial companies. I then moved to Naples, Florida to become the Chief Financial Officer for a family office with a substantial commercial real estate portfolio with assets ranging from office parks to flex industrial to beachfront resort hotels.

I moved to Charleston in 2003; prior to joining Colliers, I was a First Vice President with CBRE for 16 years, specializing in land and investment property sales.

I provide both tenant and landlord representation for clients in the sale, leasing and disposition of industrial properties across Charleston and the Lowcountry region of South Carolina. Whether I am negotiating critical terms in a lease for a tenant or consulting an owner or landlord in the sale or leasing of their space, my role is to meet my client’s real estate and financial goals, both for today and into the future.

Charleston is a small but powerful and unique market, and I pride myself in connecting people and identifying opportunities that others might miss. My goal is to maximize value for my clients, whatever you value most from your real estate, and to exceed your expectations.

I focus on site development as well as both landlord and tenant representation for industrial properties throughout the Charleston, SC region and throughout South Carolina. I have established myself in the market by forming key relationships in various industry sectors and learning the market drivers that impact end users. 

I work with clients to coach them on site development by providing creative solutions to overcome issues such as zoning, wetlands, access and utilities.  I have also worked closely with the South Carolina Ports Authority to better understand the full supply chain lifecycle to better serve our clients in their search for industrial space.
