Tarzana, CA – June 1, 2012 – (RealEstateRama) — Colliers International, the third largest global real estate services organization, has completed the $2,326,000 sale of an approximately 12,044 square foot vacant retail property located at 18553-18563 Ventura Blvd. in Tarzana. This prime Ventura Blvd storefront property is located in the heart of Tarzana’s business and entertainment district with significant frontage and excellent visibility near one of the busiest intersections in the San Fernando Valley on Ventura Blvd and Reseda.
Jeff Gould, Senior Associate, and Jeff Albee, Senior Vice President, of Colliers International represented the seller. Gould and Albee also represented the buyer, who will use the property for their dermatology and skin care practice.
The Colliers team worked hand in hand with the owner to execute a disposition and marketing strategy that targeted owner/user buyers in order to maximize the value of this well-located asset. Additionally, due to the proximity of the Tarzana Hospital, the Colliers team specifically targeted medical and office owner/user tenants in the surrounding area.
“This was a complex transaction that required all parties working together as a team to accomplish the sale,” said Albee. “In the end, our top tier marketing campaign not only maximized the value of the asset but also generated multiple competitive offers that maximized value. Ultimately, we identified an owner/user who purchased the property using SBA Financing and whose plans are to rehab the asset for their medical practice.”
Built in 1947, the property sits on approximately 0.39 acres of land and is located within a quarter of a mile from the new 250,000 square foot Village Walk retail complex in which includes Whole Foods and other high end boutique retailers. Additionally, it is within close proximity to many other major retail amenities in the area, the 101 Freeway, and the Tarzana Hospital.
