Adam Schlosser, Senior Vice President Investments, in Marcus & Millichap’s Denver, Colorado office, and Charles “Chico” LeClaire, Executive Managing Director Investments had the exclusive listing to market the property on behalf of the Seller, a private family trust. “This sale represented the final chapter in a long successful real estate career for the Seller and a strategic acquisition for the Buyer to bolster what was already a strong presence in the Colorado Springs market,” said Schlosser. “We’ve had to navigate a few new headwinds here or there to get deals across the finish line these days but nothing like other commercial real estate asset classes are experiencing. We’re lucky to be in this business.” A national self storage REIT was the Buyer.
