My legal career has always been focused on real estate, as it is both a personal and professional passion. Real estate is, as the word suggests, something that is “real”. Something you can see and touch. I am driven by the challenges presented by the unique and interesting nature of real estate and the many ways in which it can be enjoyed, developed and improved. One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is being able to help my client work through challenges, then being able to visit the site and look, touch and experience the final, “real” product.

Like real estate, each client’s business and goals are unique. My job is to understand you and your business and find solutions that achieve your goals. I will take the time to listen to your concerns and use a straight forward approach to take immediate action to address them. When I work with you, I will treat your commercial real estate project as if it were my own, whether you are the buyer, seller, landlord, tenant, lender or developer.

Clients and colleagues would say that I am calm, prepared and direct. I like to approach situations thoughtfully while getting directly to the real issues. Together, we will develop a successful strategy and feel good about the results.
