The Easton Group Adds Office Investment/Brokerage Division

Andrew Easton
Doral, FL — The Easton Group, an established commercial real estate company based in Doral, has launched a new office investment and brokerage division.

 The company recently purchased two office buildings in Miami-Dade County and hired real estate associate Andrew Easton to lead the new group. 

“While industrial real estate has been our bread and butter business for more than 40 years, this is a strategic move to further diversify and evolve our company to become more vertically integrated,” said Jose Hernandez-Solaun, president of The Easton Group.

“We will continue to be major players in industrial, but we see a lot of new opportunity with office and we have made the financial and human capital commitments to launch this new service.”

Jose Hernandez-Solaun
The Easton Group recently purchased an office building in Doral and another one in the Blue Lagoon area.

“We love both of these areas, especially Doral which is going through a renaissance right now,” said Andrew Easton, who joined the company from Jones Lang LaSalle where he specialized in office tenant representation.

“For the moment, there are still some good values on rents, but as the area continues growing, we expect to see solid rent appreciation.”

Edgewater Neighborhood, Chicago, IL

Susan Tjarksen
CHICAGO, IL – Kiser Institutional Group, Chicago’s leading commercial real estate brokerage firm specializing in institutional multifamily properties throughout the Midwest, announces a new listing – the 223-unit Sheridan-Edgewater Apartments located at 5200 N. Sheridan Road in Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood.

Originally built in the 1920s to serve as a luxury hotel, 5200 N. Sheridan Road offers a mix of efficiencies, studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments.

The first floor contains approximately 25,000 square feet of retail which has been strategically vacated so that new ownership can re-use the space for parking, amenities, or new specialty commercial tenancy. The building is being marketed without a price.

“An investor can significantly increase his or her presence in a stable rental market by purchasing this one building,” said Susan Tjarksen, principal, managing broker of KIG.

“We are seeing increased interest in the Chicago neighborhoods by national institutional investors and Edgewater is certainly one of those neighborhoods.  This asset will fit perfectly into an institutional portfolio.”
