Franklin Street, a full-service, vertically integrated commercial real estate firm, has named Justin Berryman as Director for Retail Landlord Services in the Miami office. He transferred from the company’s Atlanta office to join the retail leasing team in South Florida, covering Miami-Dade and Broward County.
Berryman specializes in landlord representation of retail properties. He has experience with power shopping centers, grocery-store anchored plazas, new developments and mixed-use projects. Altogether, he has been responsible for leasing more than 3 million square feet between Atlanta and South Florida.
“Justin has already proven himself a winner with our company, and he brings an extensive network of industry contacts and deep market expertise to his new role,” said David Fleisher, Regional Managing Partner for Franklin Street in South Florida. “He will play a key role as Franklin Street continues to grow and expand our reach in the market. We are actively recruiting experienced brokers and new team members to help us accelerate our growth plans throughout South Florida.”
“Franklin Street has a best-in-class retail landlord and tenant representation platform across Florida, so I look forward to further expanding that business line here in South Florida,” Berryman said. “This is such a retail-rich region where most national brands want to have a presence. The opportunities for us are endless.”
Berryman has a wealth of industry knowledge in commercial real estate, including site selection, development, leasing, management, acquisition and disposition of both retail and multifamily assets. He works with a variety of local, regional and national clients, including Kimco, Westwood Financial, Armstrong Development Properties, Inc., and Sandor Development. He is currently the exclusive leasing agent for the Shops of San Marco, a Publix-anchored shopping center at 13900 Jog Road in Delray Beach.
Prior to joining Franklin Street, Berryman was responsible for managing and leasing shopping centers throughout the Atlanta area. In 2010, he started a partnership that invested in distressed residential and multifamily properties, achieving double-digit returns for his investors. Berryman began his career with Marcus and Millichap as a Retail Investment Sales Associate.
In 2015 and 2016, Berryman earned Franklin Street’s Sales Achievement Award and was named Rookie of the Year in 2014 for his outstanding sales results. He was named a 2015 Emerging Leader in Retail by Real Estate Forum and a CoStar Power Broker in 2014 and 2015.
Berryman earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Entrepreneurship from Auburn University and played for the school’s football team.
