I established Connecticut Realty Group in 1993 after spending 10 years with the national corporate real estate firm of Cushman & Wakefield. My mission was to create a company that provided a more client centered, personal and responsive means of delivering commercial real estate brokerage and advisory services to area business and industry. Additionally, we fully understand that completing successful commercial real estate transactions requires a wide spectrum of knowledge, expertise, and resources which Connecticut Realty Group provides to its clients. Some of those services include….

  • Property search and site feasibility review and evaluation.
  • Environmental impact and regulations review.
  • Impact of Municipal, State, and Federal regulations.
  • Comm RE market data such as recent sales, leases.
  • Investment feasibility analysis and recommendations.
  • Property enhancement and marketing services.
  • Property valuation and pricing recommendations.
  • Redevelopment and/or re-positioning of vacant properties.

Additionally, I am a member and graduate Designee of the CCIM Institute. A CCIM (Certified Commercial Investment Member) is a recognized expert in the commercial and investment real estate industry. The CCIM designation is earned after successfully completing a graduate level curriculum that covers essential CCIM skill sets including ethics, interest-based negotiation, financial analysis, market analysis, user decision analysis, and investment analysis for commercial investment real estate. CCIMs have completed a portfolio demonstrating the depth of their commercial real estate experience and comprehensive examination. CCIMs includes brokers, leasing professionals, investment counselors, asset managers, appraisers, corporate real estate executives, property managers, developers, institutional investors, commercial lenders, attorneys, bankers, and other allied professionals.

I have served as CCIM CT Chapter President from 03-04, CCIM Institutes Regional VP 05-06 and President-Elect for 2012.
