He adds thatSieroty is looking for well-priced, quality assets with a solidincome stream.


Kaizer says the Reywest project was a good match although it'sempty because it's located in the far west submarket. MajesticRealty, based in the City of Industry, CA, did a first-class job onthe project, he adds. "We sold a property in Los Angeles so therewas added incentive to place some funds in a Phoenix asset," henotes.


Sieroty's management is interested in Phoenix for a variety ofreasons, one of which is the area's growing popularity as a "secondport" city to the Long Beach and Los Angeles.
