An emigrant from Cuba, Natan Rok arrived in Miami in 1964 and opened a modest retail business on historic Flagler Street. He and his son, Sergio, who joined the business in 1983, envisioned the area’s future as a true hub of cultural and commercial vibrancy.
Together they parlayed the business into a real estate empire centered on the core of the city. The Rok organization set the trend for modernization while maintaining a property’s unique character and historical charm. They also pioneered the practice of subdividing commercial properties into small retail spaces, despite predictions the idea would fail.
Along with their real estate activities, the Rok organization purchased a controlling interest in Transatlantic Bank and spent the better part of the 1990s growing the bank’s business.
In 2004, Sergio Rok succeeded his father as head of Rok Enterprises and spearheaded the continued growth and eventual sale of Transatlantic Bank to one of the largest banks in Spain.
Mr. Rok has built his own reputation for real estate prowess and business acumen. In the footsteps of his father, he has continued to make significant investments and build the Rok portfolio of properties. Considered a heavy hitter among commercial real estate property owners, Mr. Rok has been integral to some of the city’s biggest deals, blending a rare talent for negotiation with keen insight into the hands-on mechanics of the retail and financial services sectors.
In 2009, Rok Acquisitions, LLC was formed to leverage the Rok organization platform and resources to pursue new real estate and real estate-related opportunities. Rok has been involved in the largest real estate-related transactions in the Southeast.
Rok not only purchases real estate but leases to management companies and manages their holdings.
Rok has years of experience in closing complex deals and quickly moving through transactions.

The Rok mission is to maintain the highest standard of quality in every area of operation and to have an outstanding team of skilled, experienced, and creative professionals, leading to sophisticated operational procedures that result in consistent growth and success.
