Another accomplished commercial real estate professional, Nicole Willerer, has joined Franklin Street’s Orlando office as Director of Office Leasing. She will focus on landlord representation in the office sector for clients throughout Central Florida.
Prior to joining Franklin Street, Willerer served as an associate for Cousins Properties Incorporated in Atlanta, where her team was responsible for leasing 5.6 million square feet of Class A office space. Earlier in her career, she worked with Parkway Properties, Inc., assisting the leasing team through prospecting, sales calls, proposals and financial analysis.
“Nicole will be able to utilize her experience working directly for ownership, bringing to Franklin Street a strong landlord perspective for institutional and local owners,” said Yvonne Baker, Regional Managing Partner of Franklin Street’s Orlando office. “The Orlando market continues to grow and improve and Nicole’s experience and strong work ethic will be incredibly valuable to our growing team.”
Willerer will also work with tenants throughout the office market to identify their future and current occupancy needs and implement a strategy for clients to align their space needs with their business goals.
“I knew that I wanted to join a team with a positive and unique company culture that provided a collaborative work environment and the opportunity to grow,” said Willerer. “At Franklin Street, I will be able to use my previous experience working directly with owners to grow our office leasing team and I am excited about what we will be able to accomplish.”
Willerer is active in several industry trade groups and was a 2016 NAIOP Future Leader. She served as a member of the NAIOP Georgia chapter and was a member of the Atlanta Commercial Board of Realtors. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Central Florida. She is a licensed Real Estate Sales Associate in the state of Florida.
Franklin Street opened its Orlando office in May, and in just a short amount of time, it has recruited nearly a dozen professionals. Parallel to its mission to provide clients with as much value as possible, Franklin Street expects to see continued rapid growth for all service lines in the Central Florida market.
