Mario Gallo
 LOS ANGELES, CA, April 16, 2014 – Charles Dunn Company, one of the largest full-service regional real estate firms in the western United States, has completed the $1.63 million sale of a fully occupied, 24-unit multifamily property located at 844 and 846 W. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in south Los Angeles.

Ramin Gheitanchi and Mario Gallo of Charles Dunn Company represented buyer, Full Moon Management LLC. Gheitanchi also represented the sellers, Hertz Family Trust and MSM Trust. The closing cap rate was 5.9 percent.

Built in 1924 and 1925, the two 12-unit sister buildings are located across the street from the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and just south of University of Southern California (USC). 

There are 21 studio units and three one-bedroom units.

Ramin Gheitanchi
“The sellers needed a quick closing due to a balloon payment coming up on their loan,” said Gheitanchi. “We procured an all-cash buyer that made a non-contingent offer and closed escrow in less than 30 days.

"The buyer is a long-term holder who plans to renovate the property and add value by bringing the rents up to market rates.”

CBRE Orlando Lists Three Prime Properties in Maitland Center Office Submarket


ORLANDO, FL -- CBRE, as exclusive advisor, is pleased to offer Maitland Green I & II together with Southpoint Executive for sale in the prestigious Maitland Center office submarket, one of the most established suburban submarkets in the Southeast.

Maitland Center’s large concentration of institutional developers and owners has historically been a strong draw for credit tenants.

Investment Highlights

Ron Rogg

 Leasing Momentum—The Portfolio has consistently demonstrated its desirability within the market by attracting 14 new tenants including 125,092 square feet since mid-2012, and a total of 134,493 square feet when accounting for renewals and expansions.
 Credit Tenant Base—137,967 square feet, approximately 50 percent of the portfolio, is occupied by credit tenants, including two government credit tenants and seven public companies with a combined market cap of more than $60 billion.

  Predictability of Cash Flow —The average remaining lease term for the Portfolio is 4.0 years, thus providing investors with predictable cash-flow while maintaining the opportunity to take advantage of market rent growth in the future. There is less than 4% rollover in the first year of the analysis, while averaging only 8.1% annual rollover during the first three years. The five largest tenants (128,249 SF) have an average remaining lease term of 4.9 years.    
 Value Enhancement—The Portfolio is poised for significant value enhancement through the marking to market of certain in-place tenant leases. Average in-place rents are below the weighted average future market rent projections, allowing an investor to unlock significant value from the re-leasing of future rollover and leasing of vacant space.

 Upside Potential—With no new large office building construction in the entire Orlando MSA, the Portfolio's approximately 60,708 square feet of vacancy will be perfectly positioned to capture tenant demand.

 Barriers to Entry—There are no remaining available land sites within Maitland Center that will support large office building construction, which results in product scarcity, and promotes strong, sustainable rent growth.

 Positive Job Growth—Orlando leads the State in number of jobs created and on a growth percentage basis.

 Unencumbered/Market Financing—The property is offered unencumbered by existing financing. The combination of credit occupancy, strong in-place income, and upside potential will enable investors to maximize returns through aggressive financing alternatives.
