Greg is on the forefront of utilizing technology to improve his clients’ bottom line. For example, he and a colleague were amongst the first in the commercial brokerage community to create and implement “Pitch Videos” on behalf of their clients. Pitch Videos use a mixture of drone footage, high definition professional photography, graphics, and a carefully crafted pitch by the broker to “tell the story” of a deal. These 60 to 90 second videos have proven to dramatically increase activity, ultimately leading to more offers and higher closing prices in many cases.
Greg is an active member of the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) and a past sitting board member of the Association of Commercial Real Estate Executives (ACRE).
Greg resides in Corona with his wife, Sara, and their Golden Retriever, Penny.
