I like the tangible nature of real estate, as opposed to businesses that merge in and out of existence. I like to be able to drive down the road and see a building that I’ve helped acquire, helped lease and then sold.
I particularly enjoy the opportunity our practice affords to work with highly entrepreneurial individuals as they lay the building blocks for vibrant and sustainable businesses. It is especially rewarding to serve as a trusted legal adviser to those clients throughout the life-cycle of those businesses.
What I enjoy about my job is developing a relationship of trust with my clients as they navigate strategically important transactions. Over time, I’ve become someone who clients engage when they need someone to dig in to a complex and “first of its kind” situation—but with a practical and friendly approach.
I represent a wide variety of clients, but there’s one common theme among my best clients: creative, hard-working people who have a vision and the drive to make that vision reality. It’s fun to help clients like that realize the dream they’ve created from inception through the whole business life cycle.
The clients for whom I work are smart, talented real estate investors engaged in interesting deals from coast to coast. My goal is to understand their objectives and seek the methods to achieve them. One thing I like about real estate is that the end result is something you can actually see—you can go to the building that was built, bought, sold or financed.
I try to be as practical as possible in terms of what’s most important to my client and what we’re willing to negotiate. I work hard to win the points that will make a difference and not get caught up in winning for the sake of winning.
