Newmark Grubb Knight Frank with Lee & Associates Closes $5 Million Multifamily Sale


WASHINGTON, D.C. – May 10, 2013 – (RealEstateRama) — Lee & Associates, one of the largest broker-owned commercial real estate firms in the country, with Newmark Grubb Knight Frank has closed a $5 million multifamily sale at 421-425 Mission St.

“The buyer selected the property because of its excellent location, low interest rates and high barriers to entry market,” said Han Widjaja Chen of Lee’s Investment Services Group who represented the private buyer. “More and more we’re seeing that low interest rates are fueling up demand and feeding market velocities right now.” The seller was represented by Josh Levy and Matthew Dobson of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank.

According to the brokers, the 20-unit property was traded in an off-market transaction that resulted in a win-win situation for both parties. The buyer plans to execute a long term hold on the property which will fit well within their portfolio. The 15,392-square-foot property is 100 percent leased and almost all the units have been upgraded.
