As a local business owner, real estate investor and entrepreneur with more than 30 years of investing prowess, I have been a consultant and advisor to hundreds of small and mid-sized companies throughout the Greater Baltimore Region with regards to their business and real estate needs. I am always on the lookout for new opportunities where I can use my vast business and financial resources, expertise and extensive connections to add real value to your business and your real estate portfolio.
I enjoy coaching and investing in small to medium sized businesses that can’t seem to get to that next level of profitability. I’m glad to help you strategically figure out what’s not working and use my 30 years of problem solving experience to help you succeed.
After owning and operating a major commercial real estate brokerage firm for 20 years, closing thousands of leasing and sales transactions, and arranging dozens of investment deals, I’ve gained strategic expertise in real estate that I want to share with you.
As an INSIGHT facilitator, I connect diverse business leaders from the Greater Baltimore community to share ideas, strategies, and experiences. If you’re interested in joining a close-knit network of passionate business leaders, please reach out to me.
When you’re looking for a new home for your business, there are many factors to consider. You will need to first decide whether it makes more sense to buy a building or lease a space. If you are leasing, you will then need to look at rental rates for the building and the tenant improvement allowance being offered.
In addition, you should also consider what area is best suited for your employees and customers, and ask yourself the following questions: Are there expansion options within the building? Is there sufficient parking? Will the space enable you to recruit the best talent? Are there places to eat nearby? Does the landlord have a solid reputation?
If you are trying to decide what the best option for your business is, I’ve spent over 30 years negotiating commercial real estate and leasing deals, and would be happy to share my expertise.
Building a network takes time and effort, and isn’t something you can create overnight. One of the most efficient ways to build a network of like-minded individuals is to join a peer advisory group, such as Insight. I’ve been a facilitator as well as a participant in a number of peer advisory groups over the years, and I’ve benefited from the support and mentorship from other people in the group. After being an active member in the Baltimore business scene for over thirty years, I’ve developed an extensive network that spans across many industries, as well as a reputation as a “connector”. If you’re looking to connect with fellow business leaders who share your values and goals, I’d love to chat. We can grab a cup of coffee and discuss your goals, and whether joining a peer advisory group makes sense for you!
Do you have a business opportunity that you would like to discuss? Do you have a business situation that you need helping figuring out? Do you simply have a few questions that you would like to discuss with me? It would be my pleasure to sit down with you and offer you my thoughts. Helping Baltimore businesses thrive is my passion!
