Lee & Associates South Florida announces the promotion of Conner Milford to Vice President where he will continue to specialize and excel in Industrial Sales and Leasing throughout South Florida. The promotion follows Milford’s most recent success with the closing of an industrial warehouse off Gratigny Parkway to a defense contractor for the U.S. Coast Guard and U.S. Armed Forces. The property lies less than 1 mile from the new 850,000 SF Amazon Distribution Center and closed on April 10th, 2020 for $2.85 million marking the highest price per square foot paid for an industrial building in the area.
Conner Milford joined the Industrial brokerage team at Lee & Associates South Florida in early 2019 working closely alongside seasoned Lee & Associates President, Matthew Rotolante, SIOR, CCIM, to assist clients with their real estate requirements including lease abstracting, lease comparison analysis, financial proforma analysis, lease vs. purchase analysis, market lease and sale reports, and site selection. During his first year with the firm, Conner transacted several leasing assignments, including a 47,000 SF lease for SFS Events, and supported the landlord agency of over 330,000 SF refrigerated and freezer storage in Miami’s central industrial submarket.
Prior to joining Lee & Associates South Florida, Conner worked on the real estate side of the outdoor advertising industry in St. Louis before transferring to the South Florida market in 2015. In this position, Conner played an integral role in the negotiation of long-term leases between landlord and tenant, as well as the site selection and full life cycle development process including lobbying for rezoning and variances in the erection of new digital billboard that could generate as much as 1,000% more revenue for his clients. Through this effort where he earned multiple awards, Conner was able to develop a keen understanding of property values, cap rates, property management, zoning and land-use, development codes and ordinances, state and local permitting, and construction management.
Conner continues to pride himself on exceptional service and attention to his client’s needs to help them make informed and intelligent real estate decisions for their businesses and investments. Specializing in the industries of freight forwarding, aviation, and food processing & distribution, Conner Milford continues to work closely with Lee & Associates South Florida President and Industrial, Supply Chain and Logistics Specialist, Matthew Rotolante.
