Raymond Sandelli is well recognized in commercial real estate circles across Florida, so it was big news when he joined an entrepreneurial firm in Fort Myers.
Most recently, Sandelli was senior managing director of commercial brokerage CBRE's statewide operations from 2000 to 2006 and the firm's recovery and restructuring operations until 2012. He joined CBRE (formerly known as CB Richard Ellis) in Tampa in 1995 as managing director.
Now, Sandelli has joined Fort Myers-based CRE Consultants as the managing partner of the commercial brokerage firm. He will oversee the company's offices in Fort Myers, Naples and Stuart.
“His knowledge and leadership in the industry throughout Florida, and across other U.S. markets for that matter, are incredible,” says Randal Mercer, a CRE Consultants founder and partner, in a statement. “What a great addition to our team and another benefit for our clients and future clients.”
In addition to his successful career in commercial real estate, Sandelli served a tour as a member of the Blue Angels, the U.S. Navy's Flight Demonstration team. Sandelli served as an aircraft carrier aviator and flight instructor.
