Today’s local and international clients seeking acquisition, disposition, development and leasing of industrial real estate demand a client-centric consultative approach to designing iron-clad solutions. As an industry-leading strategic advisor and a highly engaged commercial real estate professional, I exceed this criteria by offering a caring and thorough understanding of clients’ business goals before delivering creative solutions that quickly overcome existing challenges. Equipped with a long-term view of achieving optimal results, I exclusively represent prominent corporate occupiers across Canada and the United States. As such, 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 love putting my investigative strategies to source the root of clients’ issues and finding solutions that give credible answers to ongoing problems. Delivering superior client service, possession of an unyielding entrepreneurial spirit and a collaborative work ethic, together with a robust industry reputation for having utmost integrity in client dealings, form the groundwork of my accomplishments.
Pillars of my success are the belief in working hard and smart, persevering in spite of obstacles and providing sustainable solutions based on long-term gratification.
