Stiles Realty announced today that Nicole Messer joined its retail group as Senior Retail Associate. In this role, Messer will focus primarily on developing third-party retail leasing and investment sales business in the Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale and Miami markets.

“We’re excited to welcome Nicole to our growing team,” Paul Marko, president of Stiles Realty said. “Her expertise at developing long-term partnerships with clients aligns well with Stiles’ integrated service model, which includes development, architecture, construction, property management and tenant improvement.”

“Expanding our retail team is a key strategic initiative for Stiles as we look to grow our market share throughout the state,” Marko commented. “The addition of Nicole will allow us to better service the unique needs of our clients in the South Florida market while increasing our footprint.”
