For more than 25 years I have worked with great people in real estate in the appraisal, development, finance, construction and brokerage worlds. I have concentrated on the suburban Chicago industrial market representing corporations, developers and institutions. With a foundation in Chicago I have been able to extend my brokerage platform with a number of corporations, entrepreneurs and developers across the United States. With twenty five years experience, I have enjoyed mentoring a number of newcomers into our business. Passing the torch to the next generation of professionals has been a rewarding experience. At NAI I am a Principal of the firm and currently serve on the Board of Directors. I have also held multiple positions as a Board Member with our Chicago Association of Industrial Real Estate Brokers.
My friends and colleagues know that my family comes first. I am blessed with an amazing wife and three children. I grew up with role model parents and four competitive brothers. As a family we travel as much as possible and I expect those will be our strongest family memories. I am on the Scholarship Committee of the University of Wisconsin Alumni Association in Chicago. The leadership and purpose of this organization always reminds me that education is the foundation of the future. It is always an honor to be with the other members that donate time and effort to the continued success of the largest alumni chapter in the UW system.
