Director of Retail Services
“I have had the privilege of completing deals in many different markets and many different sizes with rents of five hundred bucks a month to upwards of twelve thousand dollars per month—in New York City. With my tenant experience combined with Jim Kelley’s expertise on the landlord side, we know Champions DFW will be a more comprehensive force in the Dallas / Fort Worth and North Texas markets.”
