"Tom and JLL have been excellent real estate partners for us in a very tricky market. They took the long view and advised us as friends for years, before we were ready to take a big bite and move into a 30K new space. They have been invaluable partners for us, and I could not recommend them more."

Hundreds of deals and millions of square feet under the feet of San Francisco’s finest and most interesting companies.

Creating Complex Solutions

Working to create ideal outcomes in the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges, Tom can often be found inventing solutions.

Offering Grit & Tenacity

Offering Grit & Tenacity

I believe grit and tenacity are the most important qualities that determine success.No one works harder for their clients. Ask them.

Protecting Clients

Protecting Clients

Rent and size and term are easy to solve for, but the real value comes in the dark corners of legal documentation, often pushing 130 pages. This is also where the true risk lies.

Providing Off-Market Answers

Providing Off-Market Answers

While I only represent tenants, I also work for the best global firm in the industry, and have insight into office spaces coming available well ahead of the competition.

The Math Matters

The Math Matters

I know the numbers. I understand effective rents and cost of capital and OPEX passthroughs and load factors and cap rates. You deserve a broker that can pencil out how your rental payments improve a building’s valuation.
