Dec 03, 2015 No Comments by

Stiles Realty, the commercial brokerage division of Fort Lauderdale-based real estate development firm Stiles, has welcomed a new veteran brokerage team to fortify the company’s focus in Miami-Dade and Palm Beach County markets.

Joining Stiles from Miami-based Adler Realty Services, this team of five brokerage professionals are responsible for more than one billion in transaction value over the past ten years.

The company is also pleased to announce the opening of a new office at 1101 Brickell Avenue, where part of the team will be located.


“Both the addition of this new team as well as the opening of a new office on Brickell Avenue will allow us to better serve our clients while growing our business and brand in Miami-Dade and Palm Beach Counties, where we have been operating for more than 65 years,” said Ken Stiles, Executive Vice President of Stiles. “This team’s exposure and deep roots in those markets gives us an opportunity to quickly expand our commercial brokerage platform in South Florida.”

Bringing more than 30 years of commercial real estate experience, Joseph Drabkin joins Stiles as managing director along with associate directors Caridad Calderin and Christina Nanan. The three will be located at Stiles’ new office in Miami. Previously Drabkin developed a new third party brokerage platform and serviced over nine million square feet of operating commercial property at Adler Realty Services. He began his career with Julien J. Studley Commercial Real Estate in the Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia markets, and then expanded his focus to international real estate where he completed deals in the Middle East, primarily Kuwait and India. Throughout the span of his career, Drabkin has executed more than $1 billion in commercial real estate transactions.

Based at Stiles’ headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, Dustin Ozga and Matthew Schwartz join the company as senior directors with a principal focus in Broward and Palm Beach Counties. With more than 20 years of combined experience, Ozga and Schwartz have built a strong record of accomplishment in South Florida, especially Palm Beach County. Collectively, their experience in institutional leasing, asset acquisition, land development and corporate services has led to the completion of more than $500 million in transaction value, of which $300 million was completed in Palm Beach County alone. Notable clients have included Cintas Corporation, DiVosta Homes, CircleBack Lending, Inc., and IP Capital Partners, LLC.

“This team is made up of passionate and enthusiastic professionals who bring with them a valuable skillset and level of experience that complements our quality commercial brokerage services,” said Marko. “We look forward to further strengthening our presence in Miami and Palm Beach.”

According to Marko, the new team will focus on large office and urban mixed-use projects while leveraging Stiles’ full range of real estate services, including development, construction and architecture.


“While the Miami and Palm Beach markets vary by demographics and scale, each benefit from a mix of talented workforces, quality residential options, premier retail destinations, and major corporations,” said Marko. “This team’s deep relationships will allow Stiles Realty to have more comprehensive coverage throughout South Florida and offer current and potential clients greater access to Stiles’ full range of services,” said Marko.
