I am a veteran negotiator that has done hundreds of retail, office and industrial leases throughout the United States. I have been a licensed Maryland attorney since 1985, and a licensed commercial real estate broker dating back to 1991. I have served as an expert witness in commercial real estate matters on multiple occasions, and have been a national instructor on real estate leasing issues, retail investments, and distressed commercial assets and REO's.
From 1995-2004, I served as the head leasing attorney for the eastern United States for Glenborough Realty Trust, a $2.5 billion diversified REIT that was traded on the New York Stock Exchange.
I offer a full spectrum of expert leasing services to landlords and tenants of all types. I am well trained in site location, and I can find the perfect location for a tenant. I can negotiate the business terms with the best of them, PLUS I am an accomplished leasing attorney that has negotiated against many of the best leasing attorneys in the nation.
I have negotiated leases for/with companies such as Lord and Taylor, Circuit City, Starbuck's, Outback Steakhouse, Hometown Buffet, Popeye's, Chipotle, U.S. First National Credit Union, Merrill Lynch, New York Life, Bella Photography, Parsons-Brinckerhoff, Caterpillar, Fed Ex, Clear Channel Communications, and many other noted national and regional companies. I have also worked with scores of local regional tenants.
I have also developed and leased out a shopping center, and have been a commercial tenant upon at least three occasions myself. I also spent four years as a commercial construction and permanent lender for a large bank. So, I understand real estate leasing from virtually all sides of the deal. That enables me to negotiate win-win deals for clients of all types.
I am available as a broker, attorney, and/or consultant to landlords and tenants alike.
