Former Cushman & Wakefield brokers Jon Blunk, Laurel Oswald and Cristina Glaria have left the commercial real estate firm to start their own, Tower Commercial Real Estate. 

The new brokerage focuses on agency leasing for Class A office properties in the central business districts of Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. Blunk is president of the new firm, Oswald executive director, and Glaria is director. Joody Andre was also hired from Cushman & Wakefield as a marketing director.

Together, the three closed 71 deals last year and leased 560,000 square feet valued at more than $230 million, including two at Citigroup Center: Citigroup’s 122,678-square-foot lease, the fifth largest lease of 2015, and Shook Hardy’s 60,000-square-foot lease renewal, according to a press release.

At Cushman & Wakefield, Blunk was previously a senior director; Oswald was a senior vice president; and Glaria was a senior associate.

Rose Harris, who joined Douglas Elliman Florida this year, was promoted to senior director of luxury sales. She will spearhead the firm’s planned Coral Gables office. Harris, a top producer, joined Elliman from ONE Sotheby’s International Realty. She has closed more than $600 million in luxury sales over the course of her career.

Sotheby’s International Realty’s Palm Beach office merged with TNT Realty Group. Teresa Dailey, Troy Dailey, David Dunham and Lori Dunham of TNT are now part of Sotheby’s, according to a press release.

First International Title promoted Darryl Tyson to CEO of First Western Title, the company’s Texas division. He was previously senior vice president of First International’s U.S. division.
