Background & Experience
For over 30 years, I’ve taken great pride in putting my professional experience and
market knowledge to work throughout the Albuquerque metro area to help clients
achieve their commercial property goals.

Whether you’re buying or selling, my aim is to solve problems, negotiate the best deal
possible for you, and ultimately arrive at a “winwin” completed transaction for both parties.

I enjoy being a part of this vibrant business that is constantly changing, evolving, and challenging me. There is always something new to learn, refine, and master and I’m energized by those opportunities to grow personally and professionally.

I’m very proud to call the state of New Mexico and city of Albuquerque my home. This is a truly special place with so much to offer. Outside of the office, I love taking advantage of our fantastic climate and landscape to hike, bike, or play golf.

I’m also passionate about working to grow and expand our city and state economy. With a strong, probusiness mindset, I believe we can create the same opportunities that have helped our neighbors thrive economically. I look forward to continuing to serve our community in any way I can.
