Leslie Burke and Michael Dambro have joined Franklin Street's Orlando industrial services team.

Franklin Street, a full-service commercial real estate brokerage firm, has added two new hires to its industrial services team. The new hires are Leslie Burke, director for tenant and landlord representation, and Michael Dambro, senior associate for sales and leasing.

“We’re thrilled to have both of these brokers join the Franklin Street team,” said Larry Kahn, senior director for industrial services at Franklin Street’s Orlando office. “Leslie and Mike are well-aligned with our core values of collaboration, integrity, accountability and hard work.  These new members of our growing industrial team understand ‘Big Data’ and how it impacts the commercial real estate market. Franklin Street’s goal is to present property in a remarkably different way, to help our customers make better real estate decisions.”
In her new role, Leslie Burke will advise clients on marketing/advertising industrial properties to potential tenants, asset disposition, and site selection for local, regional, and national clients throughout Orlando and Central Florida. 

Prior to joining Franklin Street, Burke represented commercial real estate clients in Gainesville, Fla., with Ferro Real Estate Partners and ran a Lean Six Sigma management consulting firm.  She is a member of the Orlando chapter of the Certified Commercial Investment Member Institute (CCIM) and the National Association for Industrial and Office Parks (NAIOP). She received her bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Florida.

As part of the industrial leasing and sales advisory team, Michael Dambro will specialize in industrial sales, leasing and site selection across Central Florida. He is a Florida native and 30+ year Orlando area resident with over a decade of commercial real estate appraisal experience. 

Prior to Franklin Street, Mr. Dambro served as a commercial appraiser for Chief Appraisal Services, Inc., where he appraised a wide variety of property types throughout the Central Florida market area with an emphasis on vehicle dealerships, medical offices and industrial properties. Dambro is a graduate of the University of Florida, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Communications. 

Franklin Street is actively recruiting additional brokers in our offices in Florida and Georgia as we continue to expand our reach across the Southeast,” said Yvonne Baker, regional managing partner for Franklin Street. “Last year, Franklin Street executed more than $897 million in real estate transactions. In 2019, we expect to exceed $1 billion in transactions thanks to our unique collaborative platform.”
