Harshman & Co. is pleased to welcome Tom Johnson to the firm as a new associate. A Sarasota native and a graduate of Cardinal Mooney High School, Johnson earned a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree from the University of San Diego, in California. He intends to specialize in sales and leasing of industrial and suburban office space. He is currently marketing nearly a dozen lots for sale on Toledo Blade Boulevard, in North Port, an area that has seen a resurgence of investor interest thanks to commitments by Benderson Development Co. and Sarasota Memorial Hospital, which is planning to swap a 30-acre tract in North Port for other land it owns to eventually develop a health care facility there. Today, North Port is Sarasota’s largest city in terms of land mass, with a population of 57,000 – greater than that of Sarasota – but for now land prices remain a significant value.
