Jaime Sturgis-led firm creates Native Management with a technology focus and ability to serve a wide range of property owners, from local investors to institutional firms


FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – May 13, 2020 – Native Realty, the pioneering Fort Lauderdale-based commercial real estate firm led by Jaime Sturgis, has successfully launched Native Management. The new property management company enables Native Realty to operate as a full-service, vertically integrated company and assist clients in all facets of real estate investment and ownership.

Sturgis partnered with industry veteran Carlos Saez to join Native Management as COO. Saez brings substantial property management experience and entrepreneurial spirit to the company. Before joining Native Management, Saez served as COO at PropertyForce.

The flexibility, white glove experience and cutting-edge technology Native Management offers to property owners differentiates the new company from its competitors. It is equipped to serve owners of all sizes, from mom-and-pop investors with individual properties to institutional firms with portfolios of up to 1 million square feet.

With a 97% collection rate from tenants to date, Native Management’s collections are far exceeding that of competitors. For instance, retail real estate investment trusts (REITS) responding to a Nareit survey of its members reported experiencing a drop in April collections to 46% of their typical monthly rent. 

Native Management utilizes proprietary technology to provide a one-stop digital platform accessible to owners and tenants 24 hours a day. Its centralized platform includes all property details, income statements, balance sheets and cash flow statements available at the click of a button. The technology dramatically streamlines rent collections, maintenance coordination, property accounting, vendor management and much more.

“The creation and launch of Native Management is a pivotal milestone in the evolution of Native Realty,” Sturgis said. “Many of our competitors have an old-school philosophy about management and stringent minimum requirements for property size. Our technology, flexibility, proactive approach and expertise in managing client expectations position us to quickly gain significant market share.”

Since the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, Native Management has worked closely with its existing clients. The company is educating clients and providing resources to seek various forms of assistance, including SBA loans, PPP financing and other forms of emergency disaster relief.

“The younger generation is so tech-focused, and convenience is king,” Saez said. “Our platform not only helps clients with collections, it makes the user experience for tenants much easier. During these challenging times, we are already helping property owners minimize losses and ultimately thrive when the world emerges from the crisis.”
