JLL arranged the sale of a four-building medical office portfolio in Wisconsin to Big Sky Medical

Chicago-Based Stage Equity Divests Wisconsin MOB Portfolio 

JLL Capital Markets closed the sale of a four-property, Class A medical office portfolio totaling 111,827 square feet in Milwaukee and Green Bay, WI. The firm marketed the properties on behalf of the seller, Stage Equity Partners, a Chicago-based private owner of medical office buildings.  

The portfolio was acquired for an undisclosed sum by Big Sky Medical via a competitive process that yielded extremely strong interest from a range of institutional investors. 

“We acquired the properties over a period of three years, with the notion that the aggregation would ultimately set up for a portfolio sale,” said Brian Howard, president of Stage Equity Partners.   

The JLL Healthcare Capital Markets team representing the seller was led by senior managing directors Evan Kovac and Mindy Berman, managing director Tim Joyce, director Matt DiCesare and VP Trent Jemmett. Local support was provided by senior managing director Jamie Fink.
