paves the way for the buyer as units turn over to capture the upside in the deal.” Zamora said. “We continue to see a lot of urban capital flowing into the suburbs following demographic trends and less rent controlled markets. This deal serves as a great example of how our reach in the marketplace allows us to successfully market a property at a greater price for our sellers as others were unsuccessful.” The Downtown Woodbridge 53 portfolio consists of 501 Rahway Ave., 490 Rahway Ave., and 20 Claire Ave in Woodbridge Township, NJ.

The portfolio consists of three separate buildings all located right near each other totaling 53 units. All three buildings in the portfolio are located only half a mile from Interstate 95, with easy access to Garden State Parkway, US-9, NJ-440, and US-1, making it located in one of the major transporta- tion hubs in New Jersey. The portfolio is located down the street from the New Jersey Transit’s North Jersey Coast Line and is within blocks of both the Woodbridge Center Mall and Woodbridge's down- town. MAREJ

Despite higher interest rates and a more challenging environment during our mar- keting process, the brokers successfully structured a deal on behalf of the seller, to with- stand the potential impact from the on-going volatility in the market. This was in part as a result of strong contract terms, including a significant amount of non-refundable de- posit with minimal and limited due diligence. Eider added, “Initially, the sellers had asked us what makes our approach different compared to the many others who have not succeeded?” We see our approach to be differ- ent than others, with “better marketing positioning, and a process to cast a wide net and get maximum exposure for our listings, to attract multiple buyers from a variety of pro- files – both locally and out-of- area- capital, structuring deals with the strongest terms, and consistently achieving higher prices than others. We are grateful that we succeeded in delivering this.” “Our platform allowed us to fetch an out of market buyer who understood the value- add potential in the deal.
