I: Owner / Agent Real Estate Brokerage & Acquisitions:
I have over 30 years of real estate related knowledge and experience ranging from data collection and collaboration with project and industry related professionals to major multi-million dollar acquisitions and development. As a professional in the Real Estate Industry I’ve brokered both list and sell side multi-million dollars commercial assets for private to institutional level investors. In 2013 I earned acknowledgement for being the top sales agent in investment sales for the Central Florida market for a nationally based investment firm Marcus & Millichap. I add value to clients by orchestrating the complexities associated within the commercial deal structures and finding upside opportunities outside the proverbial box. I spent many years as an Agent to developers performing due diligence to various types of projects and obtained the vital skills of negotiating in land development and commercial acquisitions. After many years as an Agent I expanded my business model as a Real Estate Broker and running my own brokerage. My Commercial Real Estate experiences expand over 2,000,000 square feet of listed & sold space and over 4200 acres of development throughout my career. My expertise mainly lies with Multi-Family and Shopping Center Investment Sales. Though my Commercial background I primarily focused on the above commercial product types but I also have extensive experience in Industrial, Office, Self-Storage, Land, Single Tenant Net Lease, and Hospitality product types. As my Commercial Real Estate experience has grown I have aligned my business plan with assisting Foreign Nationals in the purchase of Income Producing Commercial Assets. This alignment includes associations with Lending Resources, Attorneys, Accountants, and Third Party Vendors that support these efforts in a team-like manner. Taking my experience to the next level has lead me to obtain my Real Estate Instructor’s licensing in which I am authoring continuing education course materials to be integrated into the State’s licensing practices and requirements. As a natural progression of my experiences and education in the industry and marketplace I mentor those that share a passion for real estate and success. I currently serve as VP of Finance for Central Florida Commercial Association of Realtors (CFCAR) and member of the following: CCIM, NAIOP, ICSC and Leading Real Estate Companies of the World.
