The firm dominated CoStar's awards in the Tampa/St. Petersburg area, with more individuals recognized than any other commercial brokerage. The company's Tampa office, which completed 959 transactions for $17 billion in deal volume and $40 million in revenue in 2015, was also listed as both a top leasing and sales firm.

Larry Richey, Cushman & Wakefield's market leader in Florida, says the company's results in 2015 were aided by its merger with former rival DTZ Inc.

“Cushman & Wakefield is fortunate to have a stable of experienced and productive agents in Tampa, and we added to that an unbelievably successful operation in DTZ,” Richey says.

Ten agents — Todd Brandon, Paula Buffa, Ryan Reynolds, Alex Beacham, Grant Goodwiller, Scott Peek, Julia Silva Rettig, Josh Tarkow, Rick Brugge and Mike Davis — were recognized.

The firm dominated CoStar's industrial leasing category, with six of 10 slots, and notched three slots for office leasing and two in the Top Sales Brokers category.

Brandon, a Cushman executive managing director ranked for both office and industrial leasing, was the only agent in the Tampa/St. Petersburg market to be recognized in two categories.

The company represented Syniverse Technologies in its headquarters' renewal in the Highwoods Preserve, a 200,000-square-foot deal; and Hidden River Corporate Park in its deal for Johnson & Johnson's shared services headquarters' relocation, totaling 111,000 square feet.

Cushman agents also sold the Fleeman Family Trust's portfolio of properties, which totaled 34 industrial buildings with nearly 1.7 million square feet for $103 million, and represented the Lazydays RV Resort in the sale and subsequent lease back of its 126-acre RV park off Interstate 4, in Tampa.
