How long have you been working in commercial real estate?
How did you first get into real estate?
Well, I have an Architecture degree and practiced in that field early in my career, until 1999. Leaving Richmond at that time, I came to Hampton Roads to work in a Business Development/Marketing role for a firm that did design and construction. Shortly after that I got involved in HRACRE (Hampton Roads Association for Commercial Real Estate), and my network quickly expanded within the regional real estate world.

How would you describe the commercial real estate market in northeastern NC and the Outer Banks?
I'm certainly more familiar with the Hampton Roads market in Virginia. But I believe the northeastern NC market could be vital to growth of the overall region. We have so many assets in the region and we're primed for growth associated with projects like offshore wind and undersea cables, etc.
Can you share one great piece of advice for someone looking to buy/lease commercial property or land?
