Crosby & Associates, Inc., the most trusted name in agricultural & commercial real estate, announced that Erin Carden, CCIM has joined the Winter Haven office as a Commercial REALTOR®.

Real estate has always been an integral part of Erin’s life. As a daughter of a landlord, Erin grew up spending many weekends and summer days helping to fix, maintain, and manage her father’s investments. After graduating from Florida Southern College, she purchased her first rental property at the age of 24.  Shortly thereafter, Erin began her career in commercial real estate under the mentorship of Benjamin Crosby for over seven years, during Erin’s first stint with the Crosby & Associates, Inc family.

Over the years, Erin has gained extensive experience in commercial sales and leasing, market research, land development, and financial analysis.  She has continued to build a personal portfolio of investment properties that includes residential and commercial renovations. She also holds the prestigious Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) Designation.  

After taking some time to start her family and focus on her own real estate investments, Erin is returning to Crosby & Associates, Inc. with extensive commercial property management experience and a passion for community redevelopment in Polk County, where she resides with her husband of 18 years and two young daughters.  She specializes in the sale and leasing of all types of commercial properties, commercial property management, and land development.

When Erin is not conducting real estate business, she spends her time volunteering at her children’s school, boating and camping with her family, enjoying music, dancing, and art.

“We’re so excited to have Erin back,” said Benjamin Crosby, founder of Crosby & Associates, Inc. “Above all, we care about family, trust, respect, and the importance of working hard for all our clients. Erin has always embodied these values, and she is sure to be a multi-talented, multi-faceted resource for our clients once again. Real estate is a part of Erin’s DNA, and it’s a part of our DNA too. It’s a great match.”
