Record Setting Sales

The sale of East Howe Steps, a 96-unit mixed use building in Eastlake, set a record of $730 per net rentable square foot – setting a new pricing benchmark for a pre-sale of an apartment building in the region. A special thanks to Bender Equities, the buyer, and developer Daly Partners for developing one of the most unique and bespoke buildings in all of Seattle!

Opportunities along Seattle’s vibrant and rapidly evolving waterfront are rare. A special thanks to our client, Goodman Real Estate, for developing a true jewel-box asset and entrusting the SMT to put together a revolutionary and undeniably effective marketing and sales campaign – The sale of this 45-unit, boutique building set a record in Pioneer Square for selling at $447,000 per unit and nearly $700 per net rentable square foot!

We sell institutionally sized value-add apartments too! Sunset View is a 240 unit property located on the western-edge of Renton, minutes from I-5. Financed transactions do not get any more complicated and this one. This sale marks the first-of-its-kind Fannie Mae “Sharia Compliant” loan assumption, coupled with a supplemental loan. Special thanks to our seller-client, Investors Management Group (IMG) and the buyer, The Meter Group.

Marketing development land hasn’t experienced innovation in decades – if at all. The Seattle Multifamily Team’s innovative web-based, video marketing set a new standard with the sale of this property – The result, a market leading price of $425 per land square foot for completely raw NC3-65 land closed in 51 days!
