We engaged Alan Lipsky and the Wolfe Retail Group of Marcus and Millichap to assist us in the acquisition of net leased properties. For the last 40+ years, we operated a multifamily property which saw significant increase in value over that time. Having entered our retirement and looking to reduce our workload, we decided to sell the apartment complex and replace it with quality net leased properties in 1031 transactions.
After meeting with Alan, we quickly got comfortable with his abilities and engaged him as our exclusive buy side agent to assist us with the effort. While we know the Wolfe Retail Group is busy by the number of transactions they close, they treated us like we were their only clients. Alan spent time understanding our investment requirements and preferences, then made a concerted effort to find properties for us. We were shown many options including several from brokers outside of Marcus and Millichap. Several times, we were given looks at offerings before they were offered to the market. Alan’s deep network of relationships across the country was very evident as was his knowledge about net leased properties. At the end, we acquired two properties through Alan to complete our 1031 transaction.
We really appreciate the efforts of Alan and the Wolfe Retail Group. They did much more than just find properties for us. They guided us through the process and helped us get across the finish line. This was an important transaction to our family and it would have been stressful were it not for Alan and his team.
We strongly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell net leased properties.
