As a principal with Avison Young’s Capital Markets team, Steven leads the firm’s North Carolina multi-family investment practice. He focuses on the marketing, disposition, acquisition and financing of multi-family assets.

His years of experience give him an in-depth understanding of the market and the ability to navigate the issues that are most important to investors during the acquisition and disposition process. During his career, he has negotiated the sale of more than $500 million worth of multi-family assets, including student housing, market-rate multi-family, senior housing and development land.

Prior to joining Colliers, Steven was a senior vice president with Cushman & Wakefield where he specialized in land brokerage and student housing.
