After spending the first 10 years of my professional career in commercial real estate, I became a Realtor® and joined the team at Griffith, Grant, and Lackie as a residential broker.
I intend to create value for my clients by using the same methodical approach as practiced in the commercial investment arena. Purchasing real estate is one of the most important investment decisions in one’s life. I will demonstrate to clients that, through a pragmatic and well executed due diligence process, that purchasing real estate can provide both a brilliant place to live in addition to a vehicle to create long-term wealth.
Prior to HG Capital, career accomplishments include (chronologically):
- CBRE (Baltimore/Washington D.C.), as a summer intern during college within the multifamily investment sales team.
- AvalonBay Communities, Inc. (Los Angeles, CA), a national multifamily U.S.equity REIT. Specialized in redevelopment of several luxury apartment communities throughout the greater Los Angeles area within the property management division.
- Alliant Capital, Ltd. (Los Angeles, CA) as an Asset Manager with the responsibility for the performance of a portfolio of single-family detached and multifamily residential assets in aggregate value of nearly $500M.
- World Class Holdings (Austin, TX) as an Asset Manager with the responsibility for the performance of a cross-sector portfolio of assets in retail, industrial, multifamily, single-family vacation rental, marina, and student housing.
I hold a BA in Psychology from The University of Notre Dame in 2007 and an MS in Real Estate from The University of San Diego in 2012.
My wife and I moved to Lake Forest in 2018 by way of San Francisco, California where I was an Investment Associate at the private equity firm HG Capital, LLC (Menlo Park, California). At HG Capital I was responsible for supporting the principals in the successful acquisitions and portfolio management of multiple funds of real estate investment ventures.
Since moving to Lake Forest, my wife and I have the opportunity to do all the things we love most – which is mostly golf and gardening. We look forward to embracing the exceptionally welcoming community we have discovered. We are excited to take up sailing at The City of Lake Forest’s Recreation Department.
