Everyday is different and brings new challenges with it. I enjoy pushing myself and learning something new every day in this industry. It is exciting to come to work knowing that an opportunity to solve a problem will present itself. In my 5 years at NAI Hiffman, I have really enjoyed establishing relationships with clients, both on the ownership side and the user side, and growing with them over the years. One of the many benefits to working on the industrial side of this business is having the chance to walk the floor of a machine shop, a distribution center, or a production facility. It is important for us to understand our clients’ business, so that we can assist, advise and evaluate how their real estate factors in to their day-to-day.
Outside of the office, my first priority is my family. What was a family of five kids, has recently added a few; three of the five siblings are married (or about to be). That makes simple dinner reservations tough, but we are all enjoying watching the family grow.
