Q & A
What is your relationship with your clients?
I like to build the type of relationships with clients which allow me to be their trusted advisor. I help them spot issues that they may not have anticipated as well as counsel them on the various courses of action to take when these types of issues arise.
What else do you offer your clients?
I am able to think outside the box and come up with creative and effective alternatives and solutions to get their deals done. At the end of the day, a client is trying to meet a business objective and it’s my job to make sure it’s done as efficiently as possible.
Why do clients like working with you?
Often institutional clients I have worked with will specifically ask to work with me again on other transactions because we have built great working relationships and because they know that they can count on me to get their deals done.
