Cassidy Turley Investment Division Significant Deals – February 2, 2012

Investor Buys Multi-Family Portfolio in Mountain View / Sunnyvale for Nearly $10 Million;

Brings Cassidy Turley Broker Reps Bautista and Henry Transactional Volume to $105 Million for 2011

February 2, 2012 – Justin Bautista and Brian Henry with Cassidy Turley’s Multi-Family Group teamed up to represent both parties in a portfolio sale consisting of four multi-family properties totaling 49 units in Mountain View and Sunnyvale for a purchase price of $9,968,000. Transacted in December, the portfolio consisted of the sale of an 11-unit property located at 1906 Rock Street in Mountain View, an 18-unit property at 1240 West Washington Avenue in Sunnyvale, a 12-unit property at 659 Kirkland Drive in Sunnyvale, and an 8-unit property at 1601 Ontario Drive in Sunnyvale.

These sales contributed to a successful year for the two veteran multi-family agents, who combined sold more than $105 million of multi-family properties totaling 614 units in year 2011. All of the multi-family properties sold by the two specialists were predominantly situated in desirable locations in Santa Clara County. Indicative of the improving multi-family investment sector, the two closed the year in strong fashion as $40 million, or nearly 40%, of the duo’s collective transactional volume alone occurred in the last ±100 days of the year—with all of these end-of-year deals set in the attractive neighboring cities of Mountain View and Sunnyvale. In total,  Mr. Bautista transacted roughly $53 million worth of apartment sales totaling 297 units in 2011 while Mr. Henry also closed roughly $53 million in sales totaling a slightly higher 317 units.

Mr. Bautista stated, “The multi-family sector is really booming right now and we definitely saw a strong surge of activity in the second half of 2011, especially as savvy investors became more aggressive to find alternative, stable vehicles amidst today’s ongoing stock market turbulence.”

Mr. Henry added, “We are especially seeing strong activity for well-maintained properties set in desirable locations in strong, accessible communities, particularly those near attractive amenities and/or thoroughfares, major employers and strong performing schools.”

Cassidy Turley Sells Paso Robles Target-Anchored Shopping Center
February 2, 2012 – Dan Wald, a Partner with Cassidy Turley specializing in retail investment sales, led the marketing team in the sale of the Crossings Shopping Center located in Paso Robles, California.  The property was acquired for an undisclosed price by Donahue Schriber of Costa Mesa from an investment partnership affiliated with Ellis Partners of San Francisco, the property’s original developer.

Developed in phases from 1998 to 2006, the Crossing Shopping Center is a market-area dominant power/promotional center located on Highway 101 in Paso Robles. Shadow-anchored by the city’s only Target, the center features such tenants as Ross, Petco, Office Max, OSH, Michaels, and Pier 1 Imports.  Pad and in-line tenants include Dollar Tree, Starbucks, Chili’s, and Carl’s Jr.

Donahue Schriber was advised by Mike Hieshima of the Santa Barbara office of Epsteen & Company.

“The transaction was a win-win for both buyer and seller,” said Wald.  “Ellis Partners developed the Crossings and made it the number one power center in its market before the advent of on-line marketing began to challenge traditional retailing.  In today’s environment, large regional players such as Donahue Schriber are in a better position to leverage tenant relationships to enhance the ‘bricks and mortar’ shopping experience and thereby maintain market dominance”.

Wald added, “Of all the parties that bid on the deal, Donahue Schriber best understood the dynamics of long-term growth and development constraints that will create additional value over time in the Central Coast California market.”

As of year-end 2011, Dan Wald’s Retail Investment Sales Team has closed over 80 retail investment transactions comprising over 8,750,000 square feet with a combined value of over $1.41 billion.
