I: Commercial Real Estate Investment Brokerage and Development:
I have over 31 years of real estate related knowledge and experience ranging from major multi-million-dollar acquisitions and development to data research and collaboration with project and industry related professionals. As a professional in the Real Estate Industry I have brokered both list and sell side commercial assets for private and institutional level investors. In 2013 I earned acknowledgement for being the top senior sales agent in investment sales for the Central Florida market with a nationally based investment firm. 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, assemblage, and commercial acquisitions. After many years as an Agent I expanded my business model as a Real Estate Broker to running my own brokerage. My Commercial Real Estate experiences expand over 4,100,078 square feet of listed, sold or leased space and over 4519 acres of development throughout my career. My expertise mainly lies with Multi-Family, Hospitality, Healthcare, Senior Housing and large Retail 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 and Single Tenant Net Lease product types. As my Commercial Real Estate experience has grown, I have aligned my business plan to include associations with Lending Resources, Attorneys, Accountants, 1031 Exchange Intermediaries and Third-Party Vendors that support these efforts in a team-like manner. Taking my experience to the next level has led 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 have served 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.
