Who We Are – What Makes Us Different
Specialized Focus on Single Tenant and Multi-tenant retail assets within Florida
Local Experts – National Capital Movers – Global Connections and Reach
At FL Retail Advisors, we focus exclusively on retail investment sales for both single-tenant and multi-tenant assets throughout Florida with additional 1031 exchange and asset lifecycle advisory. Based in Orlando, Florida, we live and work locally with a “boots on the ground” mentality and first-hand knowledge of the paths of growth throughout the state. We proactively build and maintain relationships with developers, private family real estate owners, insurance companies, management companies, CPAs, attorneys, pension funds, REITs , public & private institutions, private equity funds, foreign and domestic capital, syndicators, equity investment groups, SBA lenders, Credit unions, commercial banks and CMBS issuers.
The company mantra is “Every Day Raise Your Standards” and we continue to raise the standard in retail investment sales. With a dedication to values with the highest integrity, we are guided by doing what’s in the clients best interest EVERYTIME – even when no one is watching.
We are guided by these core questions;
Is it the truth?
Is it fair to all concerned?
Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
When our clients are successful we become successful. Because the real estate investment business is driven by situation, we seek first to fully understand the situations of our clients to help them accomplish their initiatives or “musts”. If we haven’t created a raving fan, then we haven’t done our job.
No one cares more than we do and we add more value than any of our competitors. We have proven to have a PHD in results!
