Damon is an Managing Director with JLL where he focuses exclusively on tenant representation services for his clients.  Ranging from startup entrepreneurs to many of San Diego’s top employers, Damon provides strategic occupancy planning, real time market insight and implements a proven process, which positions his clients to make informed and thoughtful real estate decisions. 

Damon leverages the full JLL platform to deliver additional value to his clients such as assisting with tenant improvement budgeting, coordinating a move, negotiating potential economic incentives and/or implementing space optimization efficiencies. His ability to adapt to the forever changing commercial real estate landscape and leverage today’s technology has established him as a true differentiator in the business.
