I started my career at a national firm, but was continuously intrigued by Capital Pacific and their ability to bring a fresh & entrepreneurial approach to the business.
Capital Pacific is an environment that challenges the norm, insists on accountability and employs individuals that are fully committed to achieving at the highest level. The energy level that’s been created in our environment keeps it competitive and exciting.
These qualities embody my daily routine and allow me to keep a constant pulse on what is occurring in the marketplace. These characteristics have allowed me to build a very loyal clientele with some of the most active investors on the West Coast, something I never take for granted and work to sustain and improve.
What's the best thing about working at Capital Pacific?
The best thing about working at Capital Pacific is surrounding yourself with like-minded, highly driven people who care not only about the business, but more importantly, one another. It’s a platform that pushes you every day to maximize your potential and provides unlimited runway.
What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned?
The most important lesson I’ve learned in work and in life is to try and eliminate the amount of highs and lows. This industry is very cyclical and brokerage can be emotional at times given the amount of investment in every deal, but keeping an even-keeled approach has allowed me to remain focused on what needs to get accomplished. This certainly helps in raising two children as well.
What's the most dangerous thing you've ever done?
The most dangerous thing I’ve done was while traveling with three friends in Southeast Asia right after graduating from college. While on a pub crawl in Bali, Indonesia, I had the bright idea of bungee jumping into a swimming pool at one of our stops. I was the guinea pig and the other three proceeded to follow. It’s something I think about regularly. It’s not so much the bungee jumping, but doing it into a pool in a third world country.
