Theseller was Tim Henrickson of Butler-Henrickson LLC ofPrescott Valley, AZ.

“Gill saw more investment opportunities in Arizonathan in California and wanted to diversify hisportfolio by buying retail instead of apartments,”says Steve Julius, a strip retail specialist withMarcus & Millichap Real Estate Investment BrokerageCo. Grand Bell Plaza traded at a cap rate over 8.5%.

Julius tells GlobeSt.com that Grand Bell Plazareceived more than five offers, but the fact that theGill partnership plans to put 65% down helped win thedeal. “No one was worried about getting the financingbecause of the large down payment,” he says.
