We sold out our offering in less than 24 hours during a tumultuous period for the stock market in the midst of the coronavirus crisis," said Steve Schwat , principal with The UIP Companies, Inc. “Frequency is a class A prop- erty and our most contempo- rary apartment community to date. We see investors’ bullish- ness in the property as a flight to quality, a flight to real prop - erty, and a sign that serious investors are allocating more capital to real estate.” 
