Real Estate Background

After many summers at the reception desk and a few hot months working alongside the roofing crew, Erin became a full-time Darwin team member in 2004. Her multi-faceted training within the company continued as she learned brokerage, marketing, accounting, and management skills. Erin uses these skills daily to work closely with the owners and the Darwin team to execute the strategic vision of Darwin’s investment portfolio. Erin has extensive experience procuring financing for private investment groups as exemplified by her ability to receive $160 million dollars across 35 loans from both banks and other financial institutions alike. The most significant of these loans was a 27-building loan package from Wells Fargo and First Merit banks which totaled approximately $49 million dollars and closed within 90 days. Her repertoire is enhanced by her ability to facilitate acquisitions, dispositions, and other complex leasing transactions by working closely with lenders, legal counsel, brokers, and other parties involved to close deals efficiently. Erin’s administrative duties includes directly managing Darwin’s property management and accounting departments, as well as overall management of Darwin’s operations, finances, and human resources.
