Rick Etner Jr.

Executive Managing Director • United States

After a successful career with IBM as an International Buyer, Rick Etner joined Cushman & Wakefield in 1988, partnering with Chris Metzger to handle the sales and leasing of industrial land and properties. Recognizing the talent that Chris had and the opportunities South Florida commercial real estate offered, Rick was the spearhead to grow the Team to be the largest Industrial team in South Florida. Rick is an Executive Managing Director who co manages this team consisting of his partners Chris Metzger, Christopher Thomson, Matthew G. McAllister, Merritt Etner, and Alex VanDresser along with our broker coordinators Julie Miller and Uilani Kauhi.

Mr. Etner specializes in the leasing and sale of industrial buildings; sales of vacant land as well as development planning for build-to-suits for his clients. Often commented on is his license plate that reads INDSTRL showing his commitment to his passion for Industrial real estate.

As one of the top industrial brokers in South Florida Rick has worked with almost every institutional developer and owner in every facet of his trade, representing buyers, sellers, landlords and tenants. One of Ricks most prominent transactions was selling Security Capital, now Prologis, their first building in South Florida, then followed that with selling them the largest development site Prologis had at the time, now known as Port 95, one of the most active institutional parks in Broward county.
