CBC Saunders' transaction volume jumps 28% in 2016

Feb. 24, 2017

Rising commercial real estate investor interest in Florida, combined with the addition of new agents pushed CBC Saunders Ralston Dantzler Realty's total transaction volume to $36 million last year.

The Lakeland-based commercial brokerage firm's performance was up 28% over 2015, and more than doubled the $12 million volume it generated in 2012.

“The market in Central Florida is much better, and our seasoned agents are producing between 20% and 30% on average more than they had the previous year,” says Jonathan Barreras, the firm's chief operating officer. “We also picked up a few agents from other companies that wanted to be with us, and that helped the overall performance as well.”

Saunders Ralston Dantzler Realty, an affiliate of Coldwell Banker Commercial, was established in 2010 and has 18 agents. In addition to Polk and Hillsborough counties, the firm is expanding to Lake and Pasco counties, as well, Barreras says.

The CBC Saunders Ralston Dantzler Realty's numbers exclude results from CBC Saunders Real Estate, a firm owned by Dean Saunders that focuses on land and agricultural sales.
Between 1996 and 2015, CBC Saunders has been a part of $1.7 billion in transactions.
