Professional Summary

I am a 20+ year veteran and consistent “Top 5” advisor nationally, resulting from my client-centric consultative approach and designing iron-clad solutions to complicated industrial transactions. With a specialization in large format distribution and fulfillment centers, my team maintain a dominant market share and significant influence within the Greater Toronto Industrial Market.
With a long-term view of achieving optimal results, I exclusively represent prominent corporate occupiers across Canada and the United States. I am often called upon as an expert witness to assist with legal proceedings pertaining to real estate disputes. This has provided me with laser insight into the unique challenges facing the real estate industry. I strive to provide superior client service and possess an unyielding entrepreneurial spirit and a collaborative work ethic, together with an industry reputation for having the utmost integrity, form the groundwork of my accomplishments.
The Society of Industrial and Office Realtors (SIOR) has twice recognized me as the Industrial Broker of the Year in Central Canada, an award based on significant deal transactions, contribution to the industry and an outside commitment to community service. 

I'm most proud of my wife and four children and the time we spend together with fridends at our family cottage on Georgian Bay.
