Leadership style: “I believe a great leader must have a clear vision and communicate it continually. They must also create a well-rounded culture that is able to both retain and attract the best people and talent to help their company thrive. For an organization to move forward and to buy into the vision, the leader must also trust their people and empower them to make creative and bold decisions.. I try to recognize each person’s unique ability and encourage them to grow and meet their professional goals while staying aligned with the company’s mission.”

Best actor to play you in a movie: “Bryan Cranston, he is very talented and an award-winning versatile actor starring in movies, theater, and TV series like ‘Malcom in the Middle’ and ‘Breaking Bad.’  I have seen him in interviews, and he seems to have the demeanor and sense of humor perfect to portray all the craziness of my daily life and in leading 85 highly successful, Type A commercial real estate brokers.”
