Let’s face it, selling or buying multifamily property can be extremely stressful, especially if the process is not managed properly.  Am I leaving money on the table?  Am I paying too much?  Is this the right move?

 

I am co-founder of APARTMENT CORE, a laser focused multifamily brokerage firm headquartered in Raleigh, North Carolina.  I’ve been selling multifamily real estate throughout North Carolina since September 2005 and I consider myself blessed to have been involved in the brokerage of several hundred million dollars worth of closed transactions.  I’ve been successful because I understand my product, but more importantly, because I go out of my way to understand my client.  Whether you’re an owner of thousands of units, fifty units or a prospective owner, when you’re my client, your goals become my goals and we will succeed together.

 

Over the years, I have come to realize that complete success in a transaction is not simply measured on the closing statement, success means the transaction was managed exceptionally well from start to finish.  Expectations were clear, questions were answered, and relationships were strengthened.  Whether it’s a full blown national marketing campaign or a direct deal, I strive for excellence by creating an environment where sellers and their managers, buyers, lenders and vendors are all comfortable working in.  When excellence is the goal, it becomes the norm, not the exception.

 

Satisfied clients are the reason why most of my business is repeat business, and I would love for you to be my next repeat client.  Let’s talk.

Brokering multifamily real estate transactions is a real passion for me.  Since I began my North Carolina multifamily brokerage career in 2007, I’ve been fortunate enough to take part in hundreds of millions of dollars worth of closed multifamily property sales.

 

How do I attribute my success?  Aside from being extremely passionate about what I do, I believe that it takes a powerful combination of diverse skill sets and personality traits, which I am dedicated to continuously enhancing and expanding upon.  The most exciting thing for me is figuring out how to synergistically apply my background, experience, skills, resources and personal abilities to help clients accomplish their goals.

 

My approach, first and foremost, is to fully understand my client’s true objective.  Once I know my client and I are on the same page, I go to work to formulate the very best strategy and methodology to achieve the result we’re shooting for.  Upon putting a multifamily disposition or acquisition plan into action, I know that there may be challenges and roadblocks along the way, but I also know that as long as we stay focused on the primary goal, we will accomplish that goal.  In the end, I truly believe that the payoff will be well worth the effort.  That’s what drives me – each and every time – to the finish line.

 

As co-founder of APARTMENT CORE and someone who is obsessed with getting results, the greatest reward of all is when I succeed for my clients and achieve their objectives.  For me, that's the ultimate payoff.  Let's make it happen!

After graduating from UNC-Wilmington in 1999, I started my professional career as a Business Analyst, which allowed me the opportunity to help businesses develop more efficient and effective processes within specific departments.  Although I enjoyed learning and growing in that role, I always had a strong interest in commercial real estate and the industry as a whole. With this in mind, in 2006 I began working as a commercial appraiser throughout North Carolina. Shortly after, I obtained my Certified General Appraiser license, along with my real estate broker license. 
 
As a commercial appraiser, I had nearly $400 million in commercial real estate properties appraised, which allowed for an easy transition into commercial brokerage.  Throughout my career, both as an appraiser and a broker, I gained an enormous amount of real estate experience and expertise in property valuation, financial analysis, market conditions, comparables, client and lender expectations, as well as feasibility and “highest and best use” determinations.
 
As an Investment Broker with APARTMENT CORE, I’d like to think I bring a unique mix of professional and personal characteristics to the table, but most important to me are my clients.  I believe that understanding client needs and objectives, while establishing mutually-rewarding relationships, has been the cornerstone of my success.
 
If you’re looking to sell or purchase multifamily in North Carolina, I’d love to tap into my background and perseverance to help you achieve your objectives.  Let’s get started!
