Vestian Continues Rapid Growth with Establishment of Miami Office

Chicago, IL. – March 18, 2022 -Vestian, the fastest-growing commercial real estate firm in the U.S., announced furthered growth with the establishment of their Miami, FL office. Miami is Vestian’s second Florida office, joining Tampa which was established in 2021.

Overseeing the Florida offices is Jamie Puddicombe, Managing Director, who enlisted Samuel Cohen to help drive the Miami presence. Samuel is a South Florida native, who has dedicated his career to serving occupiers both in the Miami market, and nationally. In addition to industrial and retail-focused expertise, Samuel brings significant experience in supply chain and construction management, ensuring clients maximize their speed to market. This is particularly critical in Miami, one of the nation’s most important port markets.

“We are thrilled to expand into Miami, and welcome Samuel to lead the charge” said Michael Silver, Vestian’s Chairman and Founder. “With over 28 years of combined commercial real estate experience, our Florida team has a proven track record of guiding clients through complex transactions.”

As a result of COVID-19, the nation has seen a sweeping trend of companies moving their operations from the West Coast, Midwest and Northeast to Florida – particularly South Florida. South Florida is an advantageous market for organizations seeking to reduce spend, maximize tax incentives, improve employee experience, and rethink their real estate plan. Vestian saw a surging need for tenants to be fairly and transparently represented as they navigate this complex and important process.

Vestian’s Florida team already has a proven track record of success. The team represents major Fortune 500 organizations to dynamic local companies spanning industries such as, manufacturing, logistics and transportation, hospitality, food processing and distribution, retailers, and more.

“The launch of our Miami office is a direct result of meeting the evolving needs of our clients,” stated George Hauch, Head of Americas Operations for Vestian. “Jamie and Samuel are Florida natives, allowing them to guide clients through complicated real estate decisions with unmatched local expertise. The team ensures clients leverage their power in negotiations and position their businesses continue to thrive.”

“I am excited to drive our Miami presence,” says Cohen. “Vestian’s proven platform of end-to-end real estate services will be a great match for organizations expanding to and/or currently operating in South Florida. Our innovative culture paired with the client-centric and transparent approach to real estate solutions differentiate us from other representation in the region.”

“Vestian is a strong believer in taking advantage of strategic opportunities,” added Silver. “With the opening of our Miami office, local businesses can be assured that their evolving real estate needs will be met with transparent, unconflicted and unconforming solutions.”
