Sharon Ellis joined Blanca Commercial Real Estate as a vice president to focus on tenant representation.

Ellis, previously with Chariff Realty Group, will join the company’s team of four tenant advisory brokers, Blanca CEO Tere Blanca said. She will also be involved in business development to expand the firm’s tenant representation business.

Ellis, a licensed attorney, has more than 16 years of experience that includes working with a number of law firms. She helped launch Howard Ecker + Company, a Chicago-based national commercial real estate firm, in Florida, and ran her own company, Palmer Property Group, after that.

She represented Zarco Einhorn Salkowski & Brito for its $18 million, 15-year lease at One Biscayne Tower in downtown Miami in 2016.

Blanca has been expanding with the recent hires of John Guitar, managing director and vice chair, and Peter Romero, who’s leading a new property management division. The brokerage has two offices in Miami and Fort Lauderdale and plans to “ continue to grow with the right talent and right strategy,” Blanca said.
