Advisors from SVN’s Hotel division and its Sarasota and Ocala offices work together to deliver effective marketing strategy and close deal for the 56-room hotel

Boynton Beach, Florida (May 22, 2014)Commercial real estate advisors from Sperry Van Ness Florida’s Hotel division and its Sarasota and Ocala offices teamed up on the sale of a 56-room hotel in Silver Springs, Florida.  Working together, the advisors delivered a highly effective marketing plan leading to the rapid sale of the property, located on 1.1 acres at 5001 E. Silver Springs Boulevard. 

“This deal epitomizes the Sperry Van Ness culture of collaboration and teamwork,” said Jerry Anderson, CCIM, Executive Managing Director of SVN Florida.“We’re able to bring together the appropriate asset-specific division, offices and advisors as needed to team together in the best interest of our clients.  It’s one of SVN’s unique attributes and truly sets us apart.”

Responding to the seller’s requirement for a rapid cash closingon the 45-year-old hotel, the SVN Florida team quickly strategized and delivered a proactive marketing effort targeted for the brokerage and investor communities.  The effort included the use of SVN’s advanced technology platforms and outreach and promotion on a broad scale. The hotel sold for $500,000.

“Thanks to our combined efforts and specific areas of expertise, we were able to attract a significant amount of interest and enquiries from both the brokerage community and hotel investors,” said Natvar Nana, SVN Hotel advisor. “From there, we facilitated an expeditious close of the deal to the high satisfaction of both the buyer and seller.”

Chris Malkin from SVN Florida’s Sarasota office represented the institutional seller on the sale. The brokerage team has successfully represented the seller on numerous deals. SVN Florida’s Bartow McDonald IV, who serves the Ocala region, provided his local market knowledge to the effort, as the hotel is located in his area.

“We were able to bring to the table an outstanding combination of asset expertise, local market knowledge and strong client relationships—all for the benefit of the client,” Anderson said. “Quite frankly, this is how commercial real estate brokerage is supposed to work.”
