I have worked at NAI Hiffman’s Industrial Real Estate Services Team since October 2013 and specialize in executing real estate transactions in the I-55, Central DuPage, I-88, and Fox Valley submarkets. My range of expertise includes: financial and market analysis, acquisition, disposition, and lease negotiation. I advise my clients by developing and implementing effective real estate solutions that support their business objectives. In 2015 and 2016, I was the recipient of NAI Hiffman’s “Young Gun” award which acknowledges the top producer in the firm with 5 years or less experience. In 2017, I was the recipient of AIRE’s Frank Mahoney Award which recognizes outstanding leadership, community service, and real estate brokerage success among young industrial real estate professionals with less than five years of experience. I have never been so impressed with the real estate community and even more so, the young industrial professionals. It is a great community to be a part of and I enjoy meeting new people every day.

If I weren’t a broker, I’d be signing autographs on the PGA Tour. Prior to joining NAI Hiffman, I attended Miami University in Ohio and was a 4-year letterman on the Men’s Varsity Golf team. Besides Golf, I enjoy reading and try to read a new book every month. My favorite book is “The Grand Slam: Bobby Jones, America, and the Story of Golf” by Mark Frost.
