Jeffrey L. Evans

Senior Director - Retail Leasing

Jeffrey L. Evans, Senior Director of Retail Leasing with The Comras Company oversees various landlord and tenant representation assignments in major urban and suburban hubs throughout South Florida.

Since forging into brokerage in 2006, Mr. Evans has experienced a meteoric rise. Mr. Evans has overseen the South Florida interests of national and regional retailers such as Capital One Bank, Outback Steakhouse, Carrabba’s Italian Grill, Bonefish Grill, Ruby Tuesday, Lime Fresh Mexican, Texas de Brazil, Mitchell’s Fish Market, Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Le Pain Quotidien, Gyroville, Segafredo, Yogurtland, The Cheese Course, Sonic, Tossed, Golden Krust, UFC Gym, Crunch Fitness, Lucky Strike Lanes, Poggen Pohl, Pandora, Goorin Bros, Planet Blue and For Eyes Optical.

With a special focus on high profile street retail, regional malls and lifestyle centers, Mr. Evans has led the leasing efforts for multiple landlords. Recently representing The Shops at Pembroke Gardens, a 400,000 square foot lifestyle center boasting a tenancy of Cheesecake Factory, Barnes & Noble, Banana Republic, DSW, Victoria’s Secret, Old Navy and more, Mr. Evans, through his leasing efforts, helped to improve the tenant mix and increase the average rental rate by more than 40%. This generation of value, in turn enabled ownership to recently sell the asset for over $470 per square foot.

Following the asset sale, Duke Realty awarded the listing of the approximate 5.65 acres of undeveloped land along the entrance to Pembroke Gardens. Through the Company’s network of relationships, Mr. Evans procured a buyer who retained the firm to assist them with the leasing. Within this leasing assignment, Mr. Evans was tapped to assist ownership with all of the land planning and building configuration to help maximize both square footage and rental rates. The project plans call for an approximate 38,000 square foot retail center, which is approximately 90% pre-leased.

Most recently, Mr. Evans was selected to spearhead the third party leasing efforts for the redevelopment of a full blockfront of retail on Miami Beach, between Lincoln Road and Sunset Harbour.

Prior to joining The Comras Company, Mr. Evans was a Director at Cushman & Wakefield where his responsibilities included agency leasing, tenant representation, site selection management and the sale of retail property in the Florida market.

Mr. Evans has a Bachelor’s degree in Finance from the University of Florida. He is a licensed Real Estate Broker in the State of Florida and is a member of the International Council of Shopping Centers. He resides in Weston, Florida with his wife and three children.
