NON-Profit work: 



My knowledge of the market, expertise in the industry, and strong network relationships help me achieve successful outcomes for my clients time and time again.

I work hard to discover properties with great potential to aid my clients in their acquisition process. My ability to think outside the box allows me to see opportunities that might escape other Des Moines area commercial realtors.

I quickly but thoroughly assess both the financial and physical characteristics of a property. This diligence ensures a competitive purchase advantage, that results in higher returns for my clients.


I provide extensive Des Moines area market knowledge and expert negotiation skills throughout the complex process of successfully closing transactions. Prior to beginning the marketing process, I meet with the seller to determine sales objectives and expectations. During this process, I evaluate the financial expectations of the owner and set time frames for disposition. I provide regular updates to ensure the owner remains informed of ongoing activity and is able to gauge the level of activity being expressed in their property. I am very experienced in all phases of contract negotiations and work closely with the seller throughout the entire closing process. I take pride in using my expertise, market knowledge and innovative strategies to fulfill my clients’ disposition needs.

Investment Sales

My goal is to provide Des Moines area real estate investors with exceptional performance. To accomplish this, I maintain an extensive knowledge of the local market and ensure that I have strong network relationships. What sets me apart is my ability to form the crucial link between client and opportunity.

Landlord Representation

For landlords, I work to enhance the value of Des Moines area real estate assets by marketing the property through customized marketing strategies, identifying suitable prospects, and managing all of the steps associated with the leasing process. I develop a complete leasing program for the property as a result of my experience with Tenant Representation. I am better able to understand tenants’ needs and thus position and lease the property effectively and efficiently.

Tenant Representation

For tenants, my comprehensive market knowledge and years of transactional experience offers expert advice to my clients who are seeking to relocate or expand their operations. My process begins with gaining a strong understanding of the client’s business goals and property requirements. In the search to find the right location and type of facility, I take into account staging capacity, manufacturing/assembly line flow, utility costs, and proximity to labor pools and distribution channels.

Once I have found the ideal Des Moines area property, I use my evaluation and negotiation skills to ensure highly favorable financial results for my client. I work hard to meet my clients’ unique transaction needs as well as guide them through every step of the process.

Real Estate Consulting

I provide my clients with intelligent, unbiased and trusted advice for their real estate needs so that my clients view me more as a consultant than a sales agent. To have a successful transaction in today’s competitive and ever changing real estate market, you must have an agent that provides creative solutions and is sensitive to the client’s needs. I provide consulting services to maximize the real estate opportunities that are present in the market. My consulting services provide advice and direction to my clients throughout the various stages of real estate transactions. I strive to establish a lasting relationship with my clients that allows them to rely on me through many phases of the positioning of their property.
