With over 25 years of Downtown San Francisco commercial real estate advisory experience, Kevin brings a wealth of knowledge and perspective to his clients, on both a local and national level. Always thinking of new ways to deliver next-level service to his clients, he developed an award-winning turnkey-tech tenant real estate product recognized by CRETech. Throughout his career, Kevin has negotiated millions of square feet of office lease transactions with an aggregate leasehold financial value in the multiple billions for solely corporate tenants.

One of Kevin’s specialization areas is studying business trends for larger law firms. He has directly worked on more than 70 different law firm office leasing projects on behalf of 24 law firms, 17 of which are AmLaw 200 firms. In the aggregate, these law firm projects total 2.5 million square feet.
In addition to a strong city and regional focus, Kevin has coordinated client projects nationally for corporations including Transamerica Corporation, which has office requirements in virtually every major metropolitan market in the United States.
