Daryl Carter and Patrick Chisholm of Maury L. Carter negotiated for the buyer. John Butler of Fruits Real Estate Services Inc. represented the sellers.

Another Carter-created trust sold 86.68 acres of its 732-acre property in Wildwood, FL to CMI Inc. for $966,800 or $11,113 per acre (26 cents per sf). The parcel is on the southwest quadrant of State Road 301 and the Florida Turnpike in Sumter County.

The 1220 Alden Road Land Trust bought a 9,189-sf, single-story office building with rooftop parking at 1220 Alden Road, Orlando from Emerson Markham, trustee, for $545,000 or $59.36 per sf. The property is currently leased to Cuhaci & Peterson Architects Inc. Carter represented the buyer. Zed Layson of Crossman & Co. negotiated for the seller.

Markham Awning Co. is leasing the property which is just off Orange Avenue. Carter represented the buyer. Layson negotiated for the seller.
