LOS ANGELES, Feb. 4, 2020 – Marcus & Millichap (NYSE: MMI), a leading commercial real estate investment services firm with offices throughout the United States and Canada, has announced the sale of a four-property, 219-unit portfolio of multifamily investment assets in Los Angeles County. The portfolio was offered on a request-for-bid basis and ultimately sold to four separate buyers for $28.3 million.

“There is a clear trend towards private capital portfolio sales of properties that span multiple markets with different demographics, rent restrictions, and business plans,” commented Darrow. “Our firm’s ability to deploy a highly collaborative, senior-level transaction team that was able to leverage their local expertise and our national platform to quickly access the most aggressive capital for each property is what ultimately led to the best possible outcome for all parties.”
