“I’m thrilled to join the Metro Commercial team,” commented Castan. “It’s been the foundation of my career to provide our partners and clients with the highest level of expertise in the development and leasing of retail and mixed-use communities, and Metro provides that kind of data-driven expertise. Our new partnership will allow us to work together to grow this business in Florida and serve a real need in these growing communities. The integrity of the personnel and the fun, collaborative approach of Metro was a huge factor in making the decision to join the team.”
