Michael A. Comras

President

Michael A. Comras is President and Chief Executive Officer of The Comras Company of Florida, Inc., a Miami Beach-based full-service real estate brokerage company founded in 1992. The boutique firm specializes in the leasing and sale of urban and suburban retail properties across South Florida. As a principal in various development entities, Mr. Comras also has been involved in the construction, leasing and sale of properties that have evolved into some of South Florida’s top retail and entertainment destinations.

Comras’ talent for seeing transactions from the perspectives of both owners and tenants has generated phenomenal success for once-languishing urban centers. A-list clients represented by Comras include Gap/Athleta, NIKE, Forever 21, Guess, Apple, TD Bank, Capital One, BCBG, Sephora, Suit Supply, Lucky Strike, Sugarcane, and Tesla to name a few. In Miami Beach, years of thoughtfully curated growth and close collaboration with neighboring property owners culminated in the company’s $370 million sale of an entire block on Lincoln Road. The transaction, which closed in October 2015, was the second-largest deal in Miami-Dade history, the result of decades of strategic acquisitions and focused activity by Comras and his partners.

Among the firm’s urban redevelopment achievements are the conception of Miami Beach’s Collins Avenue Fashion District, and the renaissance of the Lincoln Road promenade, which attracts seven million tourists annually and achieves rents in excess of $300 per square foot. To satisfy the demand for South Beach addresses, Comras has built to suit or renovated protected historic structures for tenants including Apple, Sephora, Gap, Diesel, Aldo, Club Monaco, Levi’s, BCBG, and Quiksilver.

On Miami’s mainland, Comras recently spearheaded an investor groups’ acquisitions of the retail and restaurant properties CocoWalk in Coconut Grove and the Shops at Sunset Place in South Miami, both well-located in affluent residential areas. Miami’s burgeoning Design District, Wynwood Arts District, and downtown Miami have also benefitted from Comras’ genius for curating tenants that satisfy the needs of residents and visitors alike. In submarkets throughout Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties, the company’s leasing assignments consistently strengthen and revitalize neighborhoods by leasing to businesses that are in sync with changing consumer demands.

New York-born Michael Comras holds a BA from the University of Miami and an MBA in banking and finance from Pace University in New York. A licensed real estate broker in the State of Florida, he is an active member of the International Council of Shopping Centers and the Realtor Association of Greater Miami and the Beaches.

Comras participates in several business improvement districts and civic committees, including The Underline, an initiative to transform a nearly 10-mile stretch of land under Miami’s Metrorail into a linear park, urban trail, and canvas for artistic expression. He serves on the University of Miami’s Real Estate Advisory Board and is a sought-after panelist for real estate programs organized by ICSC, University of Miami Impact Conference and commercial real estate news providers. A former chairman of The Lincoln Road Marketing Association, he has served on the Miami Beach Mayor’s Blue Ribbon Task Force on Tourism-Retail-Nightlife/Dining. Charitable activities include The AIR Society of National Jewish Health (founding member), Mount Sinai Medical Center and Miami Children’s Hospital.
