Franklin Street, one of the fastest-growing full-service commercial real estate firms in the Southeast, celebrated its 10th anniversary on Dec. 6, 2016. Since its launch in 2006, the company has grown to include five business lines – Real Estate, Capital, Insurance, Management and Valuation – more than 250 employees and more than $3 billion in current transaction value.
“It is hard to believe that it has been 10 years since we opened our doors. It has been a journey full of major successes and several challenges including one of the worst recessions in history, in one of the hardest-hit states,” said Andrew Wright, CEO and managing partner of Franklin Street. “I am grateful to the dedicated and talented team of professionals who have helped us become who we are today.”
Wright and two other partners launched the company as a multifaceted real estate business from the birth of the business in 2006, with vertically-integrated business lines encompassing the entire life cycle of an investment. “This approach of providing value-add services to our clients from acquisition to disposition, and everything in between, provides unmatched benefits for clients and reinforces our long-term strength. We have said from the beginning that we will find success through the success of our clients and that mantra still holds true for us today,” Wright said.
Franklin Street’s business lines include investment sales, capital advisory, tenant representation, insurance, management, leasing and valuation/appraisal services, all designed to capitalize on opportunities during both up and down markets. The combination of large commission opportunities and recurring revenue streams allows Franklin Street to meet client needs in any financial setting.
“Our focus on culture is what sets us apart from our competitors. We talk about our values – collaboration, accountability, hard work and integrity – often and use them as our guiding principles,” Wright said. “We will continue to build on our strong foundation, as we continue to grow and expand.”
The company has been named a fastest-growing company by the Tampa Bay Business Journal for the past six years and was named a Corporate Philanthropy Finalist the last two years for its extensive work within the community. Franklin Street completed more than $3 billion in transaction volume since its inception, and more than $800 million from 2016 through October, 2016. Headquartered in Tampa, the company has offices in Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Jacksonville, Atlanta and Orlando.
“We could not be more proud of our people and our accomplishments thus far, and we look forward to many more years of continued success,” Wright said.
