Charles Dunn Company Completes $2.7 Million Sale of Retail Property Occupied by Bank of the West in Cerritos, California


LOS ANGELES, Calif. – May 13, 2014 – (RealEstateRama) — Charles Dunn Company, one of the largest full-service regional real estate firms in the western United States, has completed the $2.7 million sale of a 3,600-square-foot, single-tenant, NNN-leased property fully occupied by Bank of the West. The property is situated on .66 acres and is located at 17303 Carmenita Ave. in Cerritos, Calif.

Charles DeSantis and Kyle Gulock of Charles Dunn Company represented the seller, New York-based Big Four, LLC. The buyer was a private investor from Ontario, Calif. who was represented by Richard Lee of R & L Properties-Cerritos Inc.


“The property fell in the sweet spot of 1031 exchange investor criteria present in the market regarding price point and unleveraged return,” said Gulock. “We focused our marketing efforts both regionally and locally. We had multiple offers and were able to select the buyer with the highest price and best terms for our seller.”

This is the second transaction DeSantis and Gulock have closed with their client, Big Four, LLC involving real estate with a financial institution as a tenant. The first occurred in February of this year on the $4.39 million sale of a 4,811-square-foot asset also occupied by Bank of the West in Huntington Beach. Additionally, this is the third bank-occupied property the team has closed in 2014.
