We knew we had a compelling story to prospective investors / speculators who were looking for a good opportunity due to the lack of 50,000 square foot buildings within the market and region. Our team developed a “short list” of buyers to contact about the building. This included an investor that recently purchased a building we had joint listed with the Colliers Columbia office in a small town northeast of Columbia, SC. We knew that the investor continued to have an appetite for additional holdings in the Carolinas.
In a mere 56 days, we were able to move forward from a fully executed letter of intent to the closing of the property. On top of the deadline to sell the property, we needed to address several other issues created by the language barrier and difference between the United States and Japanese customs in real estate transactions. Had it not been for teamwork and communication between all involved this transaction would have been impossible. Thanks to the Colliers International global platform, which is based on collaboration, we were able to make sure that our clients, no matter where located, were able to achieve their goals and receive the excellent service that they deserve.
