Commercial real estate company Easton Group has formed a new office investment and brokerage branch.

The Doral-based firm brought on real estate associate Andrew Easton to lead the division. Easton was with the Miami office of commercial real estate firm JLL, where he specialized in representing office tenants, according to a release.

Easton Management will manage the new acquisitions, while Andrew Easton will bring in tenants and negotiate leases.

“While industrial real estate has been our bread and butter business for more than 40 years, this is a strategic move to further diversify and evolve our company to become more vertically integrated,” said Jose Hernandez-Solaun, president of The Easton Group, in a statement. “We will continue to be major players in industrial, but we see a lot of new opportunity with office and we have made the financial and human capital commitments to launch this new service.”

Easton Group recently purchased two office buildings in Doral and the Blue Lagoon area and plans on buying more in the tri-county area, according to the release. — Sean Stewart-Muniz
