Hamilton Zanze Offloads Puyallup Apartments After Nine-Year Hold

San Francisco-based real estate investment firm Hamilton Zanze has sold Sierra Sun in Puyallup, WA for an undisclosed sum. The multifamily property is located in Puyallup’s South Hill, a popular choice for Pierce County residents. The firm purchased the community in May 2014.

During the nine-year ownership period, Hamilton Zanze completed many renovations focused on making the property run more efficiently. These projects included unit renovations, landscaping, pool and spa repairs, amenity improvements, lighting enhancements, and the addition of a dog park.

“We are very pleased with the performance of Sierra Sun,” said Anthony Ly, senior director of dispositions at Hamilton Zanze. “The property experienced strong rent growth while also being a cost-effective alternative to other urban areas of Washington.

“Transacting in this current market is not without its challenges,” he added. “The Kidder Mathews team led a strong marketing effort, which resulted in the selection of a very strong buyer that could navigate this market.”
