JLL Income Property Trust, an institutionally managed daily NAV REIT, has acquired Creekview Crossing in Sherwood, Ore., for approximately $61 million. The purchase includes cortana the assumption of an in-place $26 million mortgage loan with a below-market interest rate of 3.09 percent. The seller was Beaverton, Ore.-based Metropolitan Land Group.

“Given the lack of transaction activity in the market last year, getting to price agreement was somewhat more challenging,” Allan Swaringen, JLL Income Property Trust president and CEO, told Multi-Housing News. “However, we worked collaboratively with the sellers and the brokers at JLL and came to an agreement that met both parties’ objectives.

Swaringen noted that the firm has a solid track record when it comes to working with sellers. “It also helped that one of our senior portfolio managers, Lucas Kimmel, was involved and hands on with the transaction from the beginning.”
