Charles Shane and his “associates”

Bryason Realty Corporation is one of the area’s leading commercial real estate companies. We sat down with Bryason Principal Charles Shane to talk about real  estate trends.

Please tell us a little bit about the company, its niche, and secret to success:

Bryason Realty Corporation is a boutique firm, based in downtown Boca Raton.  We have successfully negotiated several of the largest sales in Boca Raton over recent years, each in excess of $35 million.  We specialize in office/retail development, leasing, sales and property management.  We manage several  well-known “trophy” properties in town.  Our geographical focus is South Palm Beach/North Broward Counties.  Our success can be attributed to long-term relationships with a select group of clients, who have multiple real estate assets.

What are some of the trends you’re seeing in the local market and how it relates to  the emergence of South County as a prime business location?:

 The local market began showing increased activity early in the year, following five years of limited sales/leasing.  We expect 2014 to be a banner year, with activity levels approaching 2007 levels.  South County has long been established as a prime business location, with extensive amenities, low taxes, and business-friendly city administrations.

What are the “hot” areas and what types of businesses are moving here?:

Boca Raton remains #1!  The Business Development Board of Palm Beach County reports that 90% of the inquiries received target Boca Raton.  Recent new additions to the workforce in Boca Raton include high tech companies, medical research firms, and many financial and  legal firms.

Why are businesses moving to the South County area?:

South County offers all the amenities – A-rated schools, beautiful beaches, parks and recreation, low taxes, and a broad spectrum of housing – from gated communities on the west side to beachfront luxury on the east.
