About Me


I completed my master’s degree in urban and regional planning at Virginia Tech and proceeded to become a planning consultant with the state of North Carolina serving cities and counties.

Later I moved on to become planning director of the following localities:

  • City of Roanoke, Virginia

  • Prince William County, Virginia (Washington DC metro area)

  • Smith Mountain and Leesville Reservoirs Regional Planning & Economic Development Commission

  • City of Durham, North Carolina

With so much urban planning experience grounding me in zoning, subdivision regulations, capital improvements and similar endeavors, I had a running head start to enter commercial real estate and development.

My development experience included being an original partner in the Governors Club which is a Jack Nicklaus Golf Course and Country Club community in Chapel Hill, NC. Later I became a partner in a waterfront development on the Intracoastal Waterway in N. Myrtle Beach, SC and, still later, I became a partner in developing Park Terrace Shopping Center at Research Triangle Park, NC.

With over 30 years of commercial real estate experience, I have been the managing partner of Metropolitan Properties, a commercial real estate company in Durham, NC near Duke University. Later, I became associated with Berkshire Hathaway HSYSU Realty in Durham and served as the commercial realtor in a large residential office.

My experience and savvy are available to give you the best outcome in commercial real estate. I believe it comes from experience and quality representation. I am at your disposal for selling, leasing or developing your commercial real estate.
