Lee & Associates Expands into Miami
Lee & Associates Miami, located at 7925 NW 12th Street in Miami, will be headed up by veteran broker and long-time Miami resident Matt Rotolante, SIOR, CCIM.
Lee & Associates just opened an office in Miami, marking the commercial real estate firm’s first move into South Florida.
Lee & Associates, which has offices in Naples-Fort Myers and Orlando, is looking to expand to Fort Lauderdale and Tampa in the future, CEO Jeff Rinkov said. The company has traditionally had a strong foothold on the industrial market, but the Miami office will also focus on office and retail, he added.
The Miami office, at 7925 Northwest 12th Street, will be led by Matt Rotolante, the former managing director of Sperry Van Ness in Miami. Matt King, specializing in retail and multifamily, and Ivelisse Pietri, who focuses on industrial and office, both joined as senior advisers. The company also hired Charlie Steinmetz, a senior adviser specializing in in industrial sales and leasing.
The industrial segment is one of the best performing sectors of South Florida’s real estate market in recent years with low vacancy rates and growing demand due to e-commerce.
