Hoping to gain market share in South Florida, a St. Louis-based commercial real estate firm formed an alliance with Robinson Commercial Real Estate Services of Miami.

Sansone Group and Robinson launched a new entity called Robinson-Sansone Brokerage Services. The joint venture plans to focus on office and industrial leasing and property management opportunities. Walter Robinson’s firm works with investors and has leased out developments totaling more than 800,000 square feet.

“We don’t have the leasing expertise on the brokerage side in these communities,” Sansone principal Jim Sansone told the Sun-Sentinel. “Now we’ll have the opportunity to gain additional business.”

Anthony Sansone launched Sansone Group in 1957. His four sons now run the company, which has a portfolio exceeding 20 million square feet in 13 states. [Sun-Sentinel]Eric Kalis
