NGKF Capital Markets has completed six transactions totaling 1,180,803 square feet on behalf of Sunbelt Enterprises, LLC and its affiliated entities. Concentrated in the Southern California and Las Vegas regions, these transactions represent more than half of the company’s 2.1-million-square-foot real estate portfolio for sale. NGKF Capital Markets Executive Managing Directors Robert Griffith and Rick Sheckter were tapped last year to market the portfolio for Sunbelt Enterprises.
The most recent sale was the Packing House Square property located at 18200 Yorba Linda Boulevard in Yorba Linda, California to PRES Companies. The Class A asset is located across from the Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace. The seven-building office and retail property totals 146,749 square feet and consists of a four-story, 96,652-square-foot office property that was 85 percent leased at the time of sale, along with six retail buildings totaling 50,097 square feet that were 98 percent leased at the time of the sale.
Other assets that have sold over the past six months include:
Moorpark Town Center in Moorpark, California: Located on a major intersection at 1 - 275 West Los Angeles Avenue, the 139,740-square-foot retail center was sold to Retail Opportunity Investment Group. The center is anchored by Ralph’s with Taco Bell and Sherwin-Williams as long-term tenants. It was 88 percent occupied at the time of sale.

Las Vegas office: A 92,635-square-foot office building located at 2100 E. Flamingo was sold to Barak Investment Group. It was 55 percent occupied at the time of sale.
“Our team was selected to market this extensive portfolio on behalf of Sunbelt because of our ability to maximize value and attract institutional capital,” notes Sheckter. “We have strategically positioned the assets in their individual markets and have garnered strong offers from these institutional buyer types.”
Griffith adds, “This market environment has proven to be an ideal one for the seller as buyers are seeking to place capital in growing regions prior to the end of the year to meet their aggressive investment goals.”
