30 Under 30: “Winner of the 2015 SIOR Pittsburgh’s Emerging Broker of the Year - Industrial Award”
What is your greatest professional accomplishment? Winning the 2015 SIOR Pittsburgh’s Emerging Broker of the Year - Industrial Award. What is your most notable project, deal or transaction? One of my most recent and memorable deals took about two years from start to finish and provided much valuable experience. On the surface it looks like a 20-year industrial lease, but it had many moving pieces and involved multiple entities. The project involved the purchase of vacant land and land under an existing building, the purchase of an existing 85,000 s/f building, an 85,000 s/f expansion of the existing building, and a 20-year lease on the entire 170,000 s/f facility. The respective closings and the lease execution took place simultaneously and involved four separate parties. Getting all the moving parts in order with the various parties involved was immensely difficult, time consuming, and frustrating at times but it exposed me to many facets of the industry and was a great experience.
