West Palm Beach, Fla. – NAI/Merin Hunter Codman, Inc., one of South Florida’s leading commercial real estate services firms, together with the Education Foundation of Palm Beach County (“Education Foundation”), today announced that Jordan C. Paul has been named to the foundation’s board. Mr. Paul is the CEO of NAI/Merin Hunter Codman and brings to the Education Foundation a strong and diverse background in business operations, law, finance, investment and asset management, and strategic joint ventures. Mr. Paul is a long-time advocate of educational causes in South Florida, and already is helping to direct the Education Foundation’s inaugural “School-Ready Supplies Store” program. The program aims to establish centralized retail/warehouse facilities in Palm Beach County to provide free school supplies to students and teachers in Title I schools (disadvantaged/low-income area schools). It is just one of many initiatives undertaken by the Education Foundation to bridge unmet gaps between public funding and the “learning, literacy and leadership” needs of the county’s students.
“Jordan Paul brings to the Education Foundation of Palm Beach County strategic business acumen that will help enable our private investments and business partnerships to maximize learning results,” said Christina Lambert, President and CEO of the Education Foundation of Palm Beach County. “Jordan Paul is a hands-on executive, which we like to see, ready to help spearhead new initiatives from the ground up. With board members like Mr. Paul and others, we can better run new programs efficiently and business-wise.”
Though Mr. Paul will advise on numerous Education Foundation initiatives, the foundation is particularly looking to his guidance with the new free school supply store since it includes the identification of optimal real estate sites, negotiation of leases (and/or building purchases), and ongoing property management. NAI/Merin Hunter Codman, where Mr. Paul serves as CEO, is the largest commercial brokerage firm in Palm Beach County, and as such, Mr. Paul oversees all aspects of strategic acquisitions, leasing and comprehensive property management at the firm, among other duties. The firm has in its client base some of the nation’s most prestigious institutional and private investors.

NAI/Merin Hunter Codman provides value-added services for corporations with local, national or worldwide real estate needs. The firm serves as a single point of contact, for clients needing one property or hundreds. We assist in evaluating opportunities, optimizing existing portfolios, planning new facilities, as well as managing and leasing corporate facilities.
We Work For You:
Tenant representation is a specialized discipline distinct from general brokerage services. In tenant representation, your broker represents you in a fiduciary capacity, representing your best interest, not the landlord’s. We work for you.
Local Market Knowledge:
While it may be easy to type a few keywords into Google and find what seems to be great space, that does not provide all the answers. NAI/Merin Hunter Codman’s tenant representation brokers provide expert advice, based on superior market knowledge, detailed research and market expertise. This knowledge coupled with superior negotiation skills, places tenants on an even playing field with professionals, landlords and owners.
Implementation with Personal Attention:
A methodical and in-depth market analysis is compiled and presented based on clients’ needs, preferences and special requests. After client feedback and approval of search results is established the implementation process begins, consisting of site selection, property tours and transaction negotiation. Particular attention is given to leasing incentives, space planning, value engineering and construction.
We Follow-Up After You Sign the Lease:
Professional tenant representation services continue beyond the execution of a lease. Assistance is provided to ensure a timely and trouble-free move with on-going support for future expansion, contraction, or construction.
Our Services Are Provided At No Cost To You:
That’s right, it’s the industry standard for landlords to pay all brokerage fees. In most cases, it is a budgeted expense that is built into owner projections.
Tenant Rep Services Include:
- Tenant/Buyer representation
- Demographic, market data and feasibility analysis
- Relocation studies
- Property, facilities and asset management
- Due diligence
- Investment acquisition/sales
