NAI/Merin Hunter Codman’s executives, brokers and staff are back in the saddle after attending our annual NAI Florida Forum and NAI Florida Chapter Meeting which took place October 27-28, 2015 in the Treetop Ballroom of Miami’s Jungle Island. Although, the NAI Chapter Meeting offered a fantastic opportunity to collaborate and learn from our fellow NAI Global, NAI Latin America and NAI Florida members, I must admit this year’s Second Annual NAI Florida Forum stole the show.
The NAI Florida Forum is quickly becoming “the” annual economic event of South Florida. Dr. Charles Bohl, an associate professor and the director of the graduate program in Real Estate Development and Urbanism (MRED+U) at the University of Miami’s School of Architecture, welcomed a packed house of local, national and international business leaders, as well as commercial real estate professionals. Dr. Bohl, who is also an accomplished author and current chair of ULI Southeast Florida/Caribbean District Council, focused on mixed-use development, placemaking and community building in Florida, the US and abroad.
Next, Al Lewis, of the South Florida Business Journal lead, our very own, local expert, and NAI/Merin Hunter Codman, Chairman Neil E. Merin, SIOR, CCIM in an vibrant and insightful panel discussing the current state and future projections of the Latin America, Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties’ real estate markets.
Following our vivacious panel, was my favorite part of the NAI Florida Forum (sorry, Neil), keynote speaker Dr. Peter Linneman. Dr. Linneman is the principal of Linneman Associates, the CEO and founder of American Land Fund and of KL Realty, and the chief economist of NAI Global. Within the first 30 seconds of his presentation, Dr. Linneman captured the audience with his fresh and perceptive take on how the current national economic trends and predicted future outcomes, affect our local markets today and tomorrow.
NAI/Merin Hunter Codman is very fortunate to have been a part of this dynamic industry event and we would like to thank all of those who helped make this event a success. A very heartfelt thank you to our generous sponsors, fellow-event underwriters (NAI Global, NAI Miami and NAI Rauch Weaver Norfleet Kurtz & Co.), and most importantly, Jackie Larkin, NAI Miami’s marketing manager and her assistant extraordinaire, Elizabeth Calderin for all of their hard work in planning such a successful event. We’re looking forward to next year!
West Palm Beach, Fla. – NAI/Merin Hunter Codman, Inc., one of South Florida’s leading commercial real estate services firm, today announced that Christian J. Johannsen, CCIM, has joined the firm as a Managing Director. Mr. Johannsen brings to NAI/Merin Hunter Codman over four decades of commercial real estate experience and industry relationships. He will focus on capital advisory services for institutional-quality assets including debt/equity placement, bridge and mezzanine financings, structured finance, and capital markets executions, among other advisory and placement services. Mr. Johannsen joins the firm from NAI Miami — which like NAI/Merin Hunter Codman is part of the NAI Global network. He held top executive positions at various other high-profile Florida brokerage firms over the course of his career and has over $4 billion of commercial real estate sales and financings to his merit. Mr. Johannsen has also, over the years, served as an instructor for the Commercial Investment Real Estate Council and as an Adjunct Professor at both Broward Community College and Palm Beach Community College.
“We feel very fortunate to have an opportunity to add to our team a senior commercial real estate executive with a sophisticated background and extensive institutional experience,” said Jordan C. Paul, CEO of NAI/Merin Hunter Codman. “Christian Johannsen will be an extremely valuable addition to our firm as we continue to expand the depth of our capital advisory and financing services.”
Added Jeremy Larkin, Co-Chairman at NAI Miami, “We support Christian’s life decision to return to his roots in Palm Beach County. While he will be missed in Miami, we were thrilled to work in tandem with Christian and the NAI/Merin Hunter Codman team. We have a long history of shared transactions with NAI/Merin Hunter Codman and believe Christian’s transfer to their offices will only strengthen our bond.
