COSTAR/LOOPNET Subscriber. Specializing in Commercial Properties. Paul is a highly experienced real estate professional who has satisfied clients on both sides of the aisle buyers/tenants and owners/landlords. He gives maximum effort to each assignment and only rests when his client is satisfied.

He relocated to Arizona in 1985 from New York where he practiced law for a firm that subsequently merged into Bryan Cave. When he arrived in Arizona he participated in the development of four shopping centers and has considerable experience in commercial real estate sales and lease negotiations.

During the real estate boom, he carved a niche for himself selling and leasing office condos, and medical and dental properties. He was proud to have represented Suncor, who was at the time the largest publicly held developer in Arizona.

Prior to joining West USA Realty Commercial Properties, Paul was a recipient of the RE/MAX Hall of Fame designation and was the Number 1 commercial agent for the RE/MAX Southwest Region in 2008 and 2009.

Paul focuses on creative real estate solutions – including in 2012 when he brokered the largest office lease in Metropolitan Phoenix (District Medical Group in connection with its facility for Children’s Rehabilitative Services). The transaction comprised 56,000 square feet, for a term of 11 years with a value of approximately $13.5 Million. This transaction also won the RED award for being the best adaptive re-use of space. Not one to rest on his laurels, in 2014, he brokered the highest per square foot office investment sale in Scottsdale at $303 psf.

He is the author of several articles including “Yes Virginia, Office Condos Still Make Sense” which appeared in the Spring 2009 State Bar of Arizona Real Estate Journal. He achieved the prestigious CCIM designation in 2002 (a designation which is held by only 6% of the commercial real estate brokers in the United States). He is a protégé of Roger Fisher, author of “Getting to Yes”, who made the phrase “win-win negotiations” famous.
