Outgoing and personable, Lydia is easy to work with and is determined to create success for her clients.  Given this, she has been recognized in the past as a “Mover and Shaker” and as a finalist for Businesswoman of the Year.  Her approach is to discern the outcomes her clients want, then to get them there in a positive and collaborative way.
 
Lydia’s private sector commercial real estate experience includes financial, user, investor, and market analysis; win-win brokerage, negotiation, and implementation of strategies to maximize returns for all types and sizes of real estate transactions; and development, operations, and asset management of multi-sector real estate portfolios. 
 
Her public sector experience includes restructuring of a port authority real estate division to operate using private sector practices and efficiencies; and analysis, operations and asset management of that division.  Lydia was the commercial real estate expert on the planning and development team for the adaptive reuse of a 220-acre waterfront brownfield site. 
 
Lydia’s contributions to the real estate community locally and regionally have resulted in a wide-reaching network of local, regional, and national real estate professionals and consultants.  Additionally, she is a senior instructor for the CCIM Institute, teaching courses throughout the US; is on the Western Washington University (WWU) College of Business and Economics (CBE) Executive Advisory Board, the WWU CBE Center for Innovative Education Advisory Board, and is a guest lecturer at Western Washington University (WWU).
