I’m Elizabeth Santos and for business I am focused on two things — clients and offESantos 2nd Headshot 2015ice space in South Florida.  I want to help my clients make informed decisions about their office space.  My approach is strategic rather than merely transactional. I specialize in creating business solutions that integrate an organization’s strategy and vision.

I do this by being an expert on office space in South Florida.  With over 20 years experience as an office broker in Miami, my experience and connections are strong and deep. I have established myself as a market leader and recognized expert in my market place.  

I represent both tenants and landlords which gives me a very balanced perspective. For landlords, I create strong, creative leasing strategies that provide solutions and, more importantly, results. For example, in March 2012, I began representing the Offices at Palmetto Bay Village Center, a 280,000 sq. ft. office park in Palmetto Bay. In just a year, I (with my partner Scott Sime) leased over 78,000 sq. ft. at the property.  Over the years, I have completed over 650 lease transactions so my experience is extensive. 

For tenants, I work with companies seeking to renew or relocate their office lease. I also help companies dispose of unneeded office space by either subleasing the office or negotiating an early termination.  I help office tenants navigate through the complexities of an office lease while making sure they are getting a fair deal.  Landlord brokers know me, respect me and work to make sure that my clients get what they want and deserve.

I have expertise in space planning, lease negotiation, financial analysis, budgeting and construction management.  Currently I am President of WorkSpace Realty, a boutique commercial real estate firm.  Check out our website at  If you need an outside opinion about your particular situation, give me a call.

From 2002 – 2011, I was with CB Richard Ellis, the largest provider of commercial real estate services in the world.  My experience at CBRE gives me a great perspective and allows me to provide institutional quality services to my individual clients.

In the past several years, I have completed over 300,000 SF of lease transactions within Miami Dade County with a focus on the Airport West submarket.  I am an acknowledged expert in this submarket and have negotiated multiple transactions with virtually every major landlord in Miami.

I have two great kids.  One is in medical school and the other is attending UF.  I am the former Chair of the Economic Development Council of South Miami-Dade, so I am actively involved in the future of our community.  In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, leisurely bicycling and anything involving the water.
