Passco Companies has acquired two multifamily communities in LA, bringing the company’s holdings in the state to 1,690 units. According to the company, both assets closed at contract pricing despite a volatile capital markets environment.

Caleb Marten of KeyBank Real Estate Capital arranged acquisition financing on behalf of Passco for both transactions.

Passco and the seller were represented by Mike Kemether of Cushman & Wakefield and Larry Schedler, Cheryl Short,and Christian Schedler of Larry G. Schedler & Associates, Inc.

*Sawgrass Point: 272-unit Class AA in the Baton Rouge submarket of Gonzales.

The acquisitions exemplify the firm’s strategy of identifying best-in-market multifamily properties poised to benefit from strong fundamentals and growing renter demand, said Colin Gillis, SVP of acquisitions at Passco.
