Despite the neighborhood undergoing a heavy revitalization over the past several years, the Seller was tired of property management headaches and felt it was the right time to cash out.


After one week of being listed, Max identified an outside agent who represented a 1031 exchange client; and submitted an offer $200,000 over the asking price.

Safe to say, our Seller is thrilled with the speed and outcome of the sale, cashing out 90 days after signing the listing agreement and walking away with extra cash in his wallet.

Speaking for myself and everyone involved, you were absolutely the best broker we could have selected to market our portfolio. You found an incredible buyer and were able to guide us through so many challenges, including a global pandemic, and secured us a price beyond our expectations.
