KOVA Companies is expanding its reach by opening a third location in Southwest Florida.
Operating as SVN | KOVA Marco Island, the new office is located at 317 N. Collier Blvd. on Marco Island, bringing new and expanded commercial brokerage services to the Marco Island, Isles of Capri and Everglades City markets.
KOVA Companies was founded in 1990 as a privately owned, full-service commercial real estate firm. The firm further expanded its robust commercial brokerage and property management offerings in 2017 through its affiliation with SVN International Corp. (SVNIC), a globally recognized commercial real estate brand, ranked seventh among the top brokerage firms in the U.S.
“The affiliation of SVN and the KOVA Companies has strengthened client services in Naples, Fort Myers and now Marco Island,” said Anthony Emma, CEO and managing partner of KOVA Companies. “With SVN, we gain expanded visibility and marketing dexterity to deliver the best value possible, no matter the geography or asset class. We now not only reach a business owner across town, but an investor across the globe.”
Operating as SVN | KOVA Marco Island, the firm will harness the expanded reach of SVNIC, headquartered in Boston, joining an international network of 1,500 advisors in 200 offices serving over 500 markets. SVN | KOVA also has local offices in Fort Myers and Naples.
Managing Director Steve Purcell will lead SVN | KOVA Marco Island, offering his expertise and brokerage services across southern Collier County. With over 25 years of experience, Purcell is a licensed real estate broker and mortgage broker who has personally closed more than 1,500 transactions on Marco Island. A native of Marco Island, Purcell specializes in both commercial and residential real estate on the island and surrounding areas.
“Our top priority is getting the most value for our clients,” said Purcell, who double-majored in finance and real estate at the University of Florida. “We believe national collaboration, via a top commercial real estate brand that markets to the entire brokerage community, is the way to achieve a top-notch level of service.”
Purcell is active in the Marco Island community and currently serves as a board member for the Marco Island Lions Club and Take a Soldier Fishing. He also volunteers with Meals of Hope and American Cancer Society.
