As an investment real estate broker, I focus on the acquisition and disposition of commercial investment real estate properties throughout the United States. I work with investors and developers everywhere in the country helping them buy and sell investment properties like fast food restaurants, auto-parts stores, banks, and shopping centers. My company is a local branch of a national real estate company with offices in almost every state.
One of the more interesting aspects of my job is speaking with real estate professionals in different markets all over the country and helping them meet their investment goals. My office does a significant amount of business in Michigan, but we are lucky to be diversified and have worked on projects across more than two dozen states.
I spend the majority of my time on business development and managing our current transactions. It’s an exciting time to be in the real estate industry, especially being from Michigan and with state of the real estate market. However, being from the Detroit area helps us understand a difficult market better than many of our colleagues throughout the country.
