As a Broker in the Las Vegas Valley, with almost my entire working career in the Las Vegas real estate industry, I'm frequently approached about the city's trajectory and how growth will be impacted. I also sit on Citizens Advisory Committee to the Redevelopment Agency for the City of Las Vegas and have first hand insight to the workings of our future development.

Having experienced Las Vegas through the many changes, from the boom of real estate to the depths of financial crises to periods of uncertainty with Covid. My family roots start here, since the 1940s, and I've been lucky enough to be shaped by the diverse history of this vibrant city. Today, I'm eager to share some expert perspectives on the exciting developments shaping the future of Las Vegas, and how these changes will lead to a more dynamic, diverse, and inclusive community.
