Newmark Negotiates Sale of Two-Property North Dallas Multifamily Portfolio

Newmark, representing Archway Equities, a private real estate group based in Beverly Hills, negotiated the sale and purchase of Essence and Allure, a two-property, 712-unit multifamily portfolio in Dallas.

The portfolio traded from Archway Equities to Bridge Investment Group, a publicly traded real estate investment and property management firm.  Newmark’s Richard Furr, Brian Murphy, Brian O’Boyle, Jr. and Jakob Andersen represented both the seller and the buyer in the transaction. The transaction amount was not disclosed.

“With an outstanding North Dallas location, strong occupancy rates and the potential for value-add upgrades, this portfolio represented an excellent investment opportunity,” said Furr. “Dallas has been the top multifamily market in the country for the past several years, and there continues to be intense competition for multifamily assets.”

The two properties, both located in Dallas, are Essence, a 348-unit, garden-style apartment and Allure, a 364-unit, garden-style apartment community.
