Chicago, IL - CORFAC International is pleased to welcome three new firms to our member affiliate network to kick off the new year. The network has added more than a dozen new firms worldwide during the past 18 months.

Originally founded by Lloyd Berger in 1998 as a commercial property management services firm, Berger Commercial/CORFAC International has since grown to become one of South Florida's largest independently owned real estate services companies. Berger Commercial provides sophisticated third-party brokerage services for tenants and landlords, investment service for buyers and sellers, property management and receivership services.
 
Based in Ft. Lauderdale, Berger Commercial has 13 brokerage professionals that specialize in the office, industrial and retail property sectors.
