Driven. Approachable. Results-oriented. And a highly-engaged commercial real estate professional. I provide creative approaches to developing real estate strategies that are aligned with executive’s visions and goals.
As a personable and passionate strategist, my work ethic is founded on hard work, commitment and authenticity. Equipped with strong research, networking and, relationship-building skills, uncommon market knowledge, integrity and transparency, I provide clients with sustainable solutions designed to maximize value in their real estate transactions. My strong eagerness to work with diverse businesses and people, share information and create sustainable relationships provide a solid foundation for achieving optimal results.
My fundamental philosophy for success: be a quality prospector, not a quantity prospector; focus on doing good work and do it long enough so that people notice; work hard and reap the rewards; and emotional intelligence is valuable.

“I had a good experience with them. They understood what we needed; they were patient and they found us a place”. –Rotork Controls
“Efficiency. When we decided to list the property, within 24 hours we had a wonderful portfolio prepared and our agent brought in one client that was basically offering our asking price and it was done within 48 hours. The agent himself was a real pleasure to work with. “
“It was good service. The agent that worked with us was really helpful. Made himself accessible and helped us out. They were friendly and they followed up.” – SciCorp International
“I got an email from Colliers and he wanted to make sure that everything was okay. I emailed him and I said that the agent was great. The deal was small but the service was large. Attended on site as needed and provided all the information I needed to make a reasonable decision on the deal. He is remarkably easy to reach, speaks clearly about important issues and follows up and checks in. I've already referred him to others. That agent is a professional person who exceeds my expectations. I had an amazing experience with him. When I needed him or when I emailed him, I got him and I know him. He does larger deals than mine and I do larger deals than this”
