With its volume up more than 15 percent, Sperry Van Ness Florida recorded its strongest yearly performance in the steadily improving commercial real estate market. SVN Florida, which provides commercial real estate brokerage services throughout the state, completed more than 500 sales and leasing transactions in 2013 and is preparing for market growth to continue in 2014.

To keep up with the rise in volume, SVN Florida offices added more than 30 advisors and support personnel expanding their presence in several markets across the state, including South, Central and Northwest Florida. SVN Florida, which provides services in more locations than any other Florida commercial real estate firm, anticipates growth and expansion to continue and is currently rolling out several new and enhanced offerings, including property management and auction services.

“Across the board, our offices are experiencing an increase in activity and renewed sense of optimism within their markets, especially from the investor and buyer side,” said Jerry Anderson, CCIM, Executive Managing Director of SVN Florida. “Intelligent, savvy investors are expressing their faith in the economy’s signs of recovery and growth by now becoming more active in commercial real estate--they are no longer sitting on the sidelines.”

SVN Florida offices are experiencing a pipeline of activity during the first month of 2014 that is on par with the entire first quarters of previous years. To ensure the commercial real estate industry continues its upward trend, Anderson said it will be crucial for several indicators, notably the number of jobs added to the economy, to show steady improvement. He explained that job growth directly impacts the commercial real estate industry and needs to continue an upward trajectory.

“We are adding advisors and services as we anticipate and prepare for growth to continue,” explained Anderson. “That’s not just good news for our industry, but for the nation, as commercial real estate trends can serve as an indicator of the overall health of the economy.”
