Lee & Associates Closes on $6.5 Million Retail Sale


Torrance, CA – January 10, 2012 – (RealEstateRama) — Lee & Associates, the nation’s largest broker owned commercial brokerage firm, has closed on the $6.5 million sale of a 14,641-square-foot retail property leased by CVS Pharmacy, located at 10522 Spring Green Blvd in Katy, Texas.

Jim Casale, CCIM, a principal in the Lee San Diego office represented the buyers, a private family trust. The seller, Cinco Verde Retail Partners, LLC, was represented by Jim DeFalco of Jim DeFalco, Inc.

“This brand new drugstore is a prime investment offering long term security for my clients,” said Casale. “Although this was an off-market deal, we competed with multiple offers and presented a comprehensive package showing my client’s expertise and our ability to close quickly on an all-cash basis. That ultimately won us the deal. Demand for high-credit, net-leased investments continues to be very high on a national basis.”

The CVS store was constructed in 2011 and is located in the master-planned community of Cinco Ranch, a high quality 7,400-acre community in Katy, Texas just 12 miles from Houston. CVS has a lease on the building until 2036 with multiple options.
