Nothing like pressure!

  • 24 Separate Buildings
  • 2 Different Cities (East Orange and Irvington)
  • 60 Day Close from Contract Execution

Brad Domenico, Partner at NJ’s leading Mortgage Advisor Progress Capital pulled off a New Year’s Eve closing which came down to the last possible moment when he closed the $81,000,000 acquisition loan for Granit Gjonbalaj, Managing Partner of Spaxel to purchase 24 properties totaling 701 units in East Orange and Irvington, NJ.

It was a momentous undertaking which required many teams to come together – Seller, Buyer, Marcus & Millichap who represented both parties in the sale and Progress Capital who arranged the financing with Arbor.  “All parties involved knew that a year-end close was critical and worked very hard to make it happen for their respective clients,” said Domenico.  “It was truly a collaborative effort.”

After two and half years of assembling the portfolio, the sale took place at the stroke of midnight.  According to Marcus & Millichap, the sale price of $92.5 Million makes this one of the largest 2020 New Jersey Multifamily sales.
