Native Realty Appoints Corey Kingsbury To Growing Team Of Commercial Real Estate Associates

Native Realty, the pioneering Fort Lauderdale-based real estate firm led by Jaime Sturgis, bolstered its expanding team of commercial real estate specialists with the addition of new Associate Corey Kingsbury. The broker joins Native from Horvath & Tremblay, where he focused on retail investment sales throughout Broward County.

Kingsbury, who also spent time with Marcus & Millichap, brings a unique background and more than seven years of sales experience to Native. A self-described “military brat” who was born in Okinawa, Japan, Kingsbury served in the U.S. Air Force for six years, rising to the rank of Staff Sargeant and earning four Joint Service Achievement Medals. He also worked as a radio DJ while stationed in Germany and was named Department of Defense Public Affairs Broadcast Journalist of the Year.

Before transitioning into commercial real estate, Kingsbury worked in various sales and management roles in all four major professional sports leagues. He spent time with the Washington Commanders, Baltimore Ravens, Washington Wizards, Washington Capitals and Miami Marlins.

“Corey Kingsbury is a rising star in South Florida commercial real estate and further strengthens our growing team at Native,” Sturgis said. “The experience Corey gained while serving our country and overseeing sales and client relations with numerous professional sports franchises gives him a great foundation as a real estate broker. We have been fortunate to welcome many talented team members to the Native family in the past few months and will continue to strategically target growth opportunities with best-in-class brokers who share our passion and dedication.”

Native Realty has been the talk of the South Florida brokerage industry of late, as it consistently attracts brokers from stuffy, corporate firms that operate like boiler rooms. The firm closes institutional-level deals in a collaborative and fun working environment, prioritizing culture above all. Native provides hands-on mentorship and training for its team members, often inviting outside experts to share best practices and insights on important topics.

Earlier this year, Native acquired full-service Fort Lauderdale brokerage No Limit Real Estate, the Kyle Sorel and Jordan Cohen-led firm with 18 agents. That followed the arrival of Native Residential Sales Director Whitney Dutton and his team from Re/Max, which facilitated the launch of Native’s residential real estate division.

“We spend more time at work than we do at home, so loving where and who you work with is a must,” Sturgis said. “The word is quickly getting out to the brokerage community that Native has an unmatched culture and gets to work on deals involving dynamic projects in South Florida’s coolest neighborhoods. We are not your average real estate company; we create a custom business plan for each agent to help them focus on their strengths and to ensure they are meeting and exceeding their goals.”
