"The solid Orange County location of this property, combined with the complementary tenant mix of the overall shopping center, was a significant factor in selling this property," said Carlos Lopez, senior vice president at Hanley Investment Group. "Buyers are returning to basic fundamentals when evaluating the acquisition of a property, and location continues to remain one of the most important reasons in their decision making."
"There is a lot of negative press out there in the commercial real estate marketplace that there is no financing available in today's environment,"
"We continue to close deals in a challenging environment right now," said Lopez. "We are getting it done because of our experience and relationships. We add a lot of value to our clients by being proactive and developing quick solutions during escrow to avoid untimely obstacles that could kill a deal."
The buyer, who fulfilled a 1031 exchange requirement with the purchase, was Oh Family Trust from Chino Hills, Calif., represented by James Kwon at Coldwell Banker Best Realty in Fullerton, Calif. The seller was HPSC II LLC, an entity of Red Mountain Retail Group from Santa Ana, Calif.
