ARA Newmark Brokers 882-Unit Atlanta Community Sale

Managing Director Chad DeFoor represented the sellers of the three-building portfolio, affiliates of Oz Real Estate and CF Real Estate Services. The buyer was Balfour Beatty Communities.

ARA Newmark closed the sale of The Evergreen Portfolio, a three-building community located in South Fulton, a suburb of Atlanta. The portfolio belonged to a joint venture between affiliates of New York-based Oz Real Estate and Atlanta-based CF Real Estate Services. The properties were purchased by Pennsylvania’s Balfour Beatty Communities, which is planning major renovations to further increase the value of the assets.

Atlanta is enjoying a trend of unprecedented interest in value-add multi-housing, and this closing is another significant indicator of the metro’s strong economic fundamentals,” said ARA’s Managing Director Chad DeFoor, in prepared remarks.
