Pat’s primary focus is retail – landlord representation, development and tenant representation. Pat has over 25 years of experience in the development and leasing of shopping centers ranging from neighborhood centers to power and lifestyle centers. He firmly believes “there is a butt for every seat” which translates to “no matter how challenging a center or space may be, there are buyers and tenants that are the right fit for those centers and spaces.” Pat’s expertise is finding the right fit for both the Landlords and Tenants he represents to maximize their ROI.

He believes every shopping center should be a “lifestyle center” reflecting the needs and wants of the surrounding community. While at SPG and WPG, he was responsible for greater than 2.3 million square feet of transactions and maintained occupancies at greater than 95%. Pat’s goal is not to simply fill space, but to represent the Landlord and lease space to Tenants with good business plans and the wherewithal to accomplish them. These same skills allow Pat to properly represent Landlords which translates very well in representing Tenants find the right space to maximize their business plan. Pat began his real estate career in 1992 with Melvin Simon & Associates which became Simon Property Group (SPG) in 1993. He started in SPG’s Financial Operations Group and, in 1999, joined the Community/Lifestyle Center Group to lease its Indiana portfolio, along with multiple retail centers outside of the state.

Did you know Wilbur Wright was born in Indiana and is technically a Hoosier just like Pat? He also enjoys spending time tinkering in his garage and answering questions from his wife like, “What are you doing now?” His passion is giving advice to his family including gems like (while singing), “You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you get what you need” and “You just have to be slightly smarter than the ______ (fill in the blank).”
