A team of brokers from Berkadia’s Chicago office has represented the seller of a $41.5 million multifamily portfolio consisting of four communities in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin. Managing Directors Alex Blagojevich and Ralph DePasquale together with Directors Chris Bruzas and Parker Stewart coordinated the Tristate Portfolio deal, which involved two separate buyers.

The portfolio offered a diverse grouping of assets and markets stretching along interstates 90 and 80 from Indiana to Wisconsin. Given the diversity, we had strong interest as a portfolio but also from numerous groups on the individual assets,” said DePasquale in a prepared statement.
