CBRE Closes Apartment Deal on Milwaukee’s East Side

CBRE arranged the $2.09-million sale of a 21-unit multifamily property in Milwaukee to Fairchild Acquisitions LLC. The fully leased, 18,390-square-foot building is located at 1718-1734 E. Lafayette Pl., in proximity to the North Avenue and Historic Brady Street entertainment districts of Milwaukee. 

Matson Holbrook, Patrick Gallagher and Gretchen Richards with CBRE represented the sellers, Marquis, LLC and Jack, LLC.
“We had a ton of interest in this deal from both local and regional buyers and ultimately found Fairchild, who recently closed on several other East Side multifamily properties as they are looking to grow their portfolio,” said Holbrook. “The exceptional location and potential to implement value-add strategies attracted the buyer to this property.” 

Nathan Glaisner of Verde Investments represented the buyer in the transaction. Built in 1894, the property comprises studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom floorplans and features onsite laundry facilities and a shared outdoor patio area.
