The Team

TERRITORY FOCUSED. DATA DRIVEN. ASSET CLASS AGNOSTIC.

The Urban Core Division is a data driven boutique commercial real estate firm with global outreach and a focus on the evolving Urban Core neighborhoods.

Mika Mattingly
Executive Vice President

In 2016, I joined the South Florida offices of Colliers International, launching the firm’s Urban Core division.

As co-leader of this group, our team specializes in urban renewal, off-market sales, and assemblages across core South Florida neighborhoods.

With a strong foundation of building-level market data and a knack for navigating the complexities of urban zoning and approvals, I have established myself as the premier real estate expert in the Downtown Miami area. I have been a driving force behind the market transformation from a neglected business corridor to a revitalized destination for real estate investing and community.

Through my perseverance and keen eye for highest and best use, I have sold many of these cherished historical buildings – some of which had been left unused for years and will now be reenergized with an influx of capital and urban renewal efforts. These landmark buildings include the Old Post Office, Dade Commonwealth Building, Thomas Center and Courthouse Tower.

Prior to Colliers, I was an instrumental player in major assemblages, including being the lead broker on behalf of investor Moishe Mana, who has acquired a major presence in downtown Miami. Since 2014, I brokered 53 transactions worth $306 million targeting commercial properties on East Flagler Street and surrounding areas.

I began my career in real estate in late 2006, learning the ropes on the tail end of Miami’s last boom. Always on the grind, I sold notes in the dry years that followed. When the market began to recover, I turned my attention to the emerging neighborhoods in Miami’s urban core. I became known for my keen intuition in pinpointing blighted areas that were poised for explosive growth, well before they were on the radar.

 

Accomplishments

  • Involved in 61% of all commercial real estate inventory in a one-mile radius of the urban core in the past two years.
  • Within the last 18 months alone, I have assembled a critical mass by selling 31 buildings in Miami’s urban core.
