CREC has been appointed to lead leasing at three office properties in South Florida’s key office markets of Brickell and Coral Gables.
The office buildings become the latest addition to CREC’s portfolio, which includes more than 100 properties totaling 13 million square feet across the state’s major markets. As the commercial real estate industry continues to consolidate amongst national firms, CREC remains Florida’s premier independent full-service commercial real estate firm, with offices in Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Orlando.
“We are thrilled with this new assignment, which comes on the heels of two other significant leasing and management contracts for institutional partners, highlighting CREC’s ability to continue to thrive and differentiate in a market otherwise defined by consolidation within the national brokerage houses,” said Carol Brooks, President of CREC.
Steven Hurwitz, Partner, Doug Okun, Senior Vice President, and Katie Fernandez-Espinosa, Senior Leasing Associate, will lead the office leasing efforts.
“Our institutional clients enjoy our full-service platform, local market expertise and track record to provide a holistic approach to real estate services,” CREC’s Steven Hurwitz said. “We have a uniquely collaborative team approach among disciplines, enabling us to provide institutional quality service in an entrepreneurial setting.”
