“This deal, from its beginning and acceptance of our LOI, was closed in 10 business days, which for us, was a record in a transaction like this,” said John Crump, BH Properties’ managing director of finance. Bill Hughes, who was the ground lease consultant, said this transaction solidifies BH Properties position in the net leased market and confirms the company’s ability to make timely decisions, provide flexibility and accommodate the needs of most leasehold lenders.

The company has transacted in approximately $2 Billion Acquisition and Disposition and closed on the transaction in as quick as 48 hours. “While we don’t look to close every transaction in two weeks, our team has the experience, skill set and commitment to make a deal happen and close with amazing speed as we remain committed to expanding our presence in the net leased space,” said BH Properties President and Founder Steve Gozini.
