Ven-American Grows Portfolio, Names New Director Of Property Management

Ven-American Real Estate, Inc., a 22-year-old residential and commercial real estate company based in Coconut Grove, has expanded its commercial property portfolio, assuming management of Monarch Commerce Center in Miramar.
Built in 2006, the 141,000-square foot, Class A industrial office park was named 2010 and 2012 Industrial Office Park of the Year in the annual TOBY Awards presented by BOMA of Fort Lauderdale and the Palm Beaches.
Shari Lynn Hurtado has been named Director of Property Management, according to Ven-American founder Andrew Kruss. In her new role at Ven-American, Hurtado will continue to oversee property management at Monarch Commerce Center, where she has worked for the past six years, as well as other properties in Ven-American’s growing portfolio.
A licensed Realtor who has spent her entire career in commercial property management, Hurtado holds the LEED AP certification (Accredited Professional, Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design), an internationally recognized program that promotes green building solutions, from design and construction to operations and maintenance.
Hurtado also holds an RPA (Real Property Administrator) designation from BOMI International, reflecting her broad understanding of all aspects of commercial property management.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to have someone with Shari Lynn’s experience on our team,” Kruss said. “Her knowledge, her skills and her work ethic are second to none, and I know she’ll bring real value not just to our organization but also, more importantly, to our clients.”
Kruss, who has owned and managed office buildings for more than 25 years, said that Hurtado’s hiring complements Ven-American’s relationship with Clean Energy Green Corridor, part of the Ygrene Energy Fund which provides financing to both home and building owners for renewable energy, hurricane protection measures and energy efficiency upgrades.
“We’re committed to helping clients enhance their bottom line by offering them expert and efficient property management services as well as enhanced energy efficiency and other sustainable building solutions,” said Kruss.
Ven-American Real Estate, Inc., founded in 1991, is a full service residential and commercial real estate firm offering brokerage and property management services as well as sustainability consulting and financing for clients.
