The Eastern Shore of Maryland and Delaware. I specialize in office, industrial and retail properties.
2. What’s your latest best practice tip that you can share?
I have found great success in 3 key areas:
- Daily planning

3. What’s been the biggest change over on how you run your business in the past decade?
