We are primarily a commercial real estate company specializing in Office, and Industrial properties, and also providing Property Management services. Over the few years we’ve been in business we’ve expanded our horizons and have added in addition to the Office and Industrial, some Retail and Land sales as well as some high end Residential sales and property management in all of those areas.

How we do it makes us unique:

As mentioned previously, FlaCRES is a full service company. To further define “full service”, FlaCRES offers a more personal approach, where the seller can sit back and relax knowing that unlike larger firms with countless listings, you will not be the “little fish” in the “Big Pond”, to us you are the “WHALE” in the “puddle”! We will go to work for you the minute the listing agreement is signed and we won’t stop until we’re at the closing table with you, watching you sign on the dotted line, happy with a deal that is a win-win for YOU and everyone at the table!



How we can serve you:


Sellers, we will advertise your properties on the most frequently used web listing services where FlaCRES maintains premium memberships, we’ll handle the signage on your property, broadcast your property to hundreds of local brokers and make your listing available nationally for optimum exposure! In addition to listing services, through Search Engine Optimization, we maintain first page status to many searches on Google, Yahoo and other search engines helping to generate optimum exposure and more contacts.


If you are a buyer, it’s the same deal! We will not stop until you have the property you are happy with, be it a purchase or a lease that suits your needs. Those same listing services we use to advertise properties that are for sale or lease, will also provide us through our premium memberships, the cream of available properties, whether you are looking for commercial or residential, whether local or a national relocation. We’ll scour the town and surrounding areas, and keep you updated on our findings!


In other words, you can count on the two of us to go the extra mile for you, and to deliver what we promise. The most important aspect of any business transaction that we are a part of is your opinion of us at the close of that transaction. We intend for you to walk away with one thing in mind…Florida Commercial Real Estate Services LLC is your preferred broker. We want your continued business. We want to know that when any buyer or seller of commercial or residential real estate, or any client leasing through our services hears our names, one word comes to mind. INTEGRITY!
