Miami CBD Continues to Draw Top Tier Financial Institutions

The Miami Central Business District (CBD) combines two of the largest and most prominent submarkets in Miami, Brickell and Downtown Miami. The CBD is home to South Florida’s burgeoning financial services industry and other professional services firms, which has only been accelerated post COVID-19. A handful of well-known companies have signed leases or announced moves to Miami’s CBD chasing significant business and economic incentives, favorable tax laws, and quality of life such as Thoma Bravo, Pointe72 Asset Management, and Blackstone. Being such a prominent market, the Miami CBD has some of the highest office rental rates in the County, ending Q1 2021 at $49.62 per square foot, an increase of 4.2% since Q4 2020.

My expertise in both leasing and investment sales ranges across multiple asset types including retail, industrial, office and multifamily.  

Prior to joining Colliers International, I worked for The Washington Economics Group, Inc., where I led a team of eight economists as Manager of Client Services to prepare detailed economic impact analyses of a number of high-profile transportation and real estate projects in South Florida, including SkyRise Miami and All Aboard Florida. Other notable South Florida clients that I have worked with include Tate Capital, Odebrecht, Miami-Dade Expressway Authority and the International Speedway Corporation. Prior to moving to the United States in 2011, I graduated from law school and was a data analyst for Equity Insurance in Brentwood, UK.

I am active in the commercial real estate community through multiple organizations and committed to strengthening the participation of young leaders in the real estate sector through my current role as Co-Chair of the Urban Land Institute’s Young Leadership Group.

I also have a strong passion for teaching and mentoring students to help prepare them for careers in commercial real estate. I served as an adjunct professor for Miami Dade College School of Business teaching Principles of Management to undergraduate students pursuing their Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and have recently served as a guest lecturer at Florida International University’s Tibor and Hollo School of Real Estate teaching market research skills to graduate students in the Masters in Science in International Real Estate (MSIRE) program.

St. Thomas University awarded me with the Outstanding Graduate Award and the Women in Leadership Award in recognition of these efforts.
