Colliers International South Florida Adds Tom Farmer to Leasing Team
Miami, FL, April 19, 2018 – Colliers International South Florida is expanding its office leasing capabilities with the addition of veteran office broker Tom Farmer. Farmer joins the multi-disciplinary office brokerage team led by Jonathan Kingsley and Stephen Rutchik as a Vice President, providing added depth and expertise for the team’s Miami-Dade County office Agency and Tenant Representation platform.
Farmer is now part of a team of eight professionals who deliver institutional leasing services to sixteen clients representing 4.3 million square feet of office, flex and industrial assets in South Florida as well as representation of select tenants in South Florida and around the U.S.
"The growth of our office brokerage team represents Colliers' commitment to best-in-class service in the South Florida market," said Ken Krasnow, Executive Managing Director for Colliers International South Florida.
Farmer brings more than 13 years of commercial real estate experience to his new role at Colliers, having formulated and implemented comprehensive leasing strategies for more than 750,000 square feet of office properties as principal for negotiation of prospective tenants. He has also specialized in landlord representation for property owners and institutional clients in South Florida and throughout the state.
As Colliers International expands its presence throughout South Florida, Farmer will be working on various agency assignments, including The Gateway at Wynwood, R&B Realty’s proposed 420,000 square foot building, will be located at the axis of Wynwood and Midtown and will include 200,000 square feet of Class-A office space. It is the first true Class-A office building of scale to rise in an area that has come alive as a vibrant retail, entertainment and residential neighborhood.
"As the pace of change across South Florida markets accelerates, office users have more options with regards to location, layout and amenities," added Executive Vice President Stephen Rutchik. "More than ever, having an office broker that has both the ability to interpret the abundance of data as well the experience to advocate for our clients is a major differentiator in occupancy outcomes."
