Favorite part of his job?

“I have to say I have two aspects of my profession that are my favorite. The first being the ability to watch retail projects come to fruition. I love seeing a vacant space become something special. It is so cool to see a restaurant or retail shop filled with people enjoying the experience you helped to create. The second aspect of my job I enjoy is a happy property owner. I truly enjoy producing results for my clients and taking their property to 100% occupancy.”
