Commercial Real Estate / Business Brokering



Welcome! We are Jim and Leslie Read of “Go Team Read.” We specialize in selling commercial properties and businesses in South Florida; other services include purchases, leases and collaboration with residential Realtors to assist customers with their residential needs.

Our 3 decades of combined experience & education in real estate, lending, business brokering and customer service allow us to have a wide perspective of how to help business owners. Each situation and owner is unique; therefore, we customize a strategic process of how and when to sell, buy or lease property and get the deal closed.

In South Florida, many baby boomers are moving into retirement; there will be a substantial transfer of business and property ownership to the next generation. We work with all generations to make this happen. Different seasons of life bring about change. The two questions we ask business and property owners most are:

If you plan to retire or sell your business, WHAT’S YOUR EXIT STRATEGY?

If you plan to scale up your business, WHAT’S YOUR EXPANSION STRATEGY?

Contact us today for a complementary consultation to discuss options on selling, buying and leasing commercial real estate. let’s move forward.

A generous person will prosper;  whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.  Proverbs 11:25
