Q & A
What kind of relationship do you have with your clients?
I consider myself an extension of my clients' internal teams, focused on helping them meet their business goals.  I prefer taking a collaborative, collective approach, and I enjoy being the cool-headed teammate. Most of my clients appreciate my calm demeanor when they're in the middle of a big deal.
How broad is the geographic scope of your work?
My reach extends far beyond Florida. While I'm assisting a client with major acquisitions in West Palm Beach and Jacksonville, I'm also working on a construction loan for a project in New Jersey; and I recently closed a loan for an asset located in Dallas.   
How do you keep your client's costs down?
When it comes to billing, I really try to see eye to eye with my client. I keep them up to date on what’s going on, so there are no surprises or disappointments. I manage their expectations, keep them apprised of things along the way, and ensure there's nothing alarming.
