Traci Hart

Retail/Office Services

Mrs. Hart was born and raised in the Dade County area. After graduating with her B.A. from Florida Atlantic University, Mrs. Hart moved to the West Coast of Florida and began her real estate career. Being that Mrs. Hart parents were commercial real estate brokers, it was only natural for Mrs. Hart to gravitate towards the retail and office segment of the industry. Since first joining her previous national commercial real estate company, it was obvious to everyone that Mrs. Hart was a natural. Her strong background in research and analytics quickly made her a Top Producer within her organization. Mrs. Hart has had the privilege of both selling and leasing many landmark properties in the Sarasota County and surrounding county areas. Mrs. Hart has created strong relationships with many top national companies and organizations. Commercial Partners feels extremely fortunate to have Mrs. Hart choose them as her new brokerage company when deciding to move back to the East coast of Florida. We are certain Mrs. Harts knowledge of the industry will certainly bring a new level of expertise to the Commercial Partners Office and Retail Division.
