FORT MYERS, Fla. (July 27, 2017) – Cushman & Wakefield Commercial Property Southwest Florida, LLC has hired two brokers, Lane Boy and Michael Mahan, as directors of real estate and retail respectively. Their responsibilities include real estate consulting, transactions, reporting and analysis within the local market, as well as how it relates to the global real estate scale.
Lane Boy recently returned to Southwest Florida after several decades in Australia, where he was the CEO of two real estate-related businesses for 20 years, a direct investor in Southwest Florida real estate, and the founder of a publishing company that became Australia’s highest-selling real estate magazine. One of his real estate brokerage firms sold over $22 million in property last year. A graduate of University of Queensland in Australia and Duke University, Boy is renowned for his expert knowledge of local markets and powerful negotiating skills. He currently specializes in Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendry, Glades and DeSoto counties.
Michael Mahan relocated to Southwest Florida from Atlanta, Georgia, where he worked as a senior transaction specialist for Georgia State Properties Commission, overseeing commercial real estate activities for the state, as well as negotiating and renegotiating over 1,500 statewide real estate contracts and 300-plus individual contracts per year. Prior to that, Mahan managed all real estate activities for regional shopping centers for DLC Management’s Southeast region out of Atlanta, where he completed 50 transactions in a single year. His 15 years of real estate experience also goes back to Charlotte, North Carolina, where he founded and managed Red Oak Commercial, a brokerage firm that represented Anytime Fitness. A graduate of Ball State University, Mahan served in the 3/505th 82nd Airborne Infantry of the U.S. Army. He moved to Naples in May 2017.
“These fine men represent the quality work that the local chapter of Cushman & Wakefield desires potential clients to recognize,” said Gary Tasman, CEO & Principal Broker. “Not only is their experience diverse, but it is directly in line with the topics the firm is faced with every day.”
