Chairman, NAI/Merin Hunter Codman, West Palm Beach
Merin founded commercial real estate firm Merin Realty in 1983. After several mergers, the firm became NAI/Merin Hunter Codman. With more than 150 employees, the company is one of the largest commercial real estate firms in South Florida. Merin got his start in the business sweeping patios, picking up paper from parking lots and answering tenant complaints on weekends. “The senior guy did weekdays,” he says.
