Soon thereafter, Samuel started advising both landlords and tenants on exclusive retail and industrial lease assignments and expanded his investment sales services into the surrounding “micro-neighborhoods” of Brickell, Midtown, Design District, and Miami’s Upper East Side. Eventually, he made his way across the causeway into North Miami Beach, Surfside, and Normandy Isles where he, year over year, increased his clients’ multifamily investment portfolios.
Samuel is also licensed in the State of California, having closed similar commercial sales and lease transactions throughout the Greater Los Angeles and Orange County metros.
