FORT MYERS — Stephen Cunningham, qualifying broker of LandQwest Commercial Real Estate Services, has left the brokerage company he helped found to establish a Fort Myers office for commercial real estate firm SVN.
Cunningham, who will work as SVN Florida's managing director, joins the franchise together with leasing and sales representative Bryan Myers and Lynn Boldissar from LandQwest, who will concentrate on marketing, communications and public relations. Cunningham will focus on investment sales.
SVN will operate from its new offices at 3033 Winkler Ave., Fort Myers. SVN also maintains offices in Sarasota and South Florida.
“I wanted to take the next step in my career and operate from a national platform, which SVN provides,” says Cunningham, 63, on the move. “The challenge for now is on building a highly efficient, small office. But the SVN culture is amazing, it's different from anything I've ever experienced.”
Jerry Anderson, who currently controls the SVN Florida franchise under a master agreement with the Boston-based brokerage firm, says Cunningham “possesses an exceptional balance of market knowledge and asset expertise with a strong commitment of service to his clients. He's a great fit for SVN.”
In all, SVN operates 190 branches nationwide and internationally, and differentiates itself through corporate collaboration and the sharing of information among brokers.
Cunningham helped found LandQwest together with John Mounce and Rokki Rogan in April 2005. The company now has three offices, in Fort Myers, Tampa and Orlando.
