A native of England and a graduate of London University, I moved to the United States in 1974. After 17 years in the resort industry in Vail, Colorado and the Southeast, I moved to Charlotte in 1991. With 10 years experience in residential real estate, I transitioned into commercial real estate in the area of land and commercial investment.

Today, I see a tremendous need for investors to place money into an area that provides stability and continued growth. There are a multitude of factors that make Charlotte one of the most attractive markets in which to invest.

Much of my work over the past 15 years has been forming a joint organization that provides the full spectrum of commercial real estate services including property management and investment portfolios.
