I have been a full-time real estate agent since 1993. My first 12 years were spent as a commercial real estate agent in the Southern CA area. During this time, I specialized in the sales and leasing of Industrial Properties. Later, as the economy dipped, I then took over bankrupt apartment buildings and retail commercial buildings. I represented multiple institutional lenders...anywhere from 12 to 21 at a time, with the goal of making such properties profitable than selling them. As the economy started improving and I was selling more properties than I was receiving in bankruptcy, I got back into the resale of Industrial Properties. Then 911 occurred which had a drastic impact on the market. I then became involved in the sales and leasing of office properties. This led to me being asked to represent Shopping Center owners. I left Southern CA for Spokane, WA at the end of 2003 to start a family.
