Turnberry vet teams with Jackie Soffer on new Aventura brokerage
Jackie Soffer is a partner in the firm
A Turnberry Associates veteran has launched his own brokerage with Jackie Soffer as a partner.
Barrett Wolf opened Wolf Co. Real Estate Brokerage and Investments, a full-service commercial firm focusing on office and retail leasing, investment sales and hospitality, in late November, he told The Real Deal. Soffer, Wolf’s former boss, is a partner in the new company, which focuses on Miami-Dade County from Aventura to downtown Miami.
Wolf plans to hire six brokers over the next three months, bringing his total to eight. He’ll be handling the leasing of Turnberry’s office properties, including Turnberry Plaza and Country Club Center, as well as new projects like Canal Park on Northeast 163rd Street in North Miami.
Canal Park, a spec office development being built by Namnum Developers, is now nearly 60 percent pre-leased. The 80,000-square-foot building, at 3323 Sunny Isles Boulevard, is slated to open in February. Full-service asking rent is about $53 per square foot, Wolf said.
He’s also handling leasing of the Old U.S. Post Office building in downtown Miami. Daniel Pena-Giraldi of Stambul USA paid $11 million for the historic building at 100 Northeast First Avenue in 2014. Stambul and Wolf are negotiating with restaurants and retailers for the property, Wolf said.
