Salon Studios lll Opens New Location in Valencia


VALENCIA, CA – September 17, 2014 – (RealEstateRama) — Grace Bartsch with the Westlake Village office represented the Tenant, Salon Studios lll, and John Cserkuti with the Santa Clarita office, represented the Landlord, JH Real Estate Partners, Inc., in the lease of a 3,360 sq. ft. retail property located at 28309 Newhall Ranch Road, Ste. 2C & 2D in Valencia, CA. The value of the lease transaction was approximately $1.2 Million.

The tenant, Cleo Sandifer, has been in the salon business for over 25 years with her first salon still located in Oak Park, CA (Conejo Valley). In 2011 Cleo Sandifer partnered with fellow salon business owner, Denise Rasbury, to expand and build two new concept salons, Salon Studios l and Salon Studios ll. This new salon model is changing the industry. What makes this a new concept is how the salon is positioned. Instead of hair cutting stations out in the open, this new layout includes 24 individual private suites. This insures privacy for the client and has been very popular with high end clientele. Now the duo has set their sights on Valencia to open their third salon, Salon Studios lll in Winter 2014.

“The tenant’s requirement limited their viable options in this market and the bustling traffic-heavy Gateway Village shopping center was a perfect fit. We were able to creatively combine spaces to give the tenant the footprint they desired,” says John Cserkuti with NAI Capital.

“Working with NAI Capital was great. Both in Valencia and in Westlake Village. Grace Bartsch in Westlake was a pleasure; she was very experienced and made the transaction easier. We felt like she had our best interest at all times,” said Denise Rasbury with Salon Studios lll.

Grace Bartsch with NAI Capital notes, “Having known Denise for several years and watched the expansion of Cleo’s Hair Salon, then Salon Studios (both located in Oak Park) I was familiar with the owners’ professionalism and ability to keep their business model current. When I heard they had been looking for a second location for a while without success, I was happy to assist. Though representing a start-up tenant can be personally rewarding to a broker, representing experienced business owners like Cleo and Denise, certainly streamlines the process of site selection and eliminates many of the financial unknowns allowing me to jump right into negotiating the economics and terms for the client with a very clear picture of how to move to a successful close.”
