Business Observer – August 16, 2013

Many commercial real estate brokers live and die by the “know thy market” ethos — that the best way to a long career in the business is to become a local expert.

The client chose the Kissimmee building, City Centre, when Bowden couldn’t find a building to meet his needs locally. She says good investment properties in the Sarasota-Bradenton region around $10 million are hard to find. “I would have loved to have done this here,” Bowden tells Coffee Talk. “But most people are looking for an investment that’s a good deal. They are not as much concerned about what area.”

Bowden, the SVN Commercial Advisory Group 2011 Advisor of the Year, worked with her colleague Bruce Dilges on the transaction. She found the property through researching the internal SVN network.

The sale, further, caps a busy few weeks for Bowden. A second deal in Kissimmee, for $6.9 million, is under contract, and she recently closed on two deals in Sarasota County that total nearly $6 million.
