As an Executive Vice President, Paul represented owners in disposing or monetizing their real estate and was involved in more than $30 billion of transactions, marketing a variety of assets for a broad range of clients, from institutions to family trusts. Paul directed team members in developing pricing and sensitivity models to determine value and transaction structures and completed negotiations for many high profile deals.
