Front Street Commercial Real Estate Group announced today the hiring of Mike Perry as Director and leader of the firm’s expansion in Tampa and surrounding markets.

“Thankfully our team has been able to continue its expansion by building opportunities around people.  Our expansion into Tampa is less about that specific market and more about the fact that Mike Perry is the right fit for the culture of our team,” said Nick Banks, Managing Director of Front Street Commercial Real Estate Group.  He added, “We build opportunities around people.  We don’t make decisions to expand and then hire to the positions after.”

Perry is a long time resident of Tampa and has successfully operated his own firm for several years.  He is a graduate of the Masters of Science in Real Estate from the University of Florida’s Bergstrom Center for Real Estate Studies and he recently achieved his CCIM designation.

“I’m excited to join a dynamic group like Front Street that brings a true team approach to client relationships,” Perry said.
