TEMECULA – CBRE’s Kirk Brummer announced the National Retail Partners-West has completed the sale of Bel Villaggio I-II and Bel Villaggio III in Temecula, which are adjacent retail centers, leased to a complementary mix of internet resistant tenants consisting of restaurants, retail and “daily needs” goods and services. The combined sale price was $26,100,000.

CBRE retail experts Kirk Brummer, Sean Heitzler and team leader Philip D. Voorhees represented the seller, a San Diego-based private real estate investment firm, Pathfinder Partners. The buyer was Poincare Group, LLC.

“The property’s ideal location at the entrance to the 1.4 million-square-foot Promenade Temecula, as well as recent leasing momentum and upward-trending rents in this affluent trade area attracted significant investor demand. The potential to generate healthy yields for such a strong location made this acquisition a perfect fit for the buyer,” Brummer said.

Pathfinder Partners has owned, managed, leased and renovated the properties since acquiring them in 2013. Situated on over 16.35 acres, Bel Villaggio I-II and III is located at 41501 and 41221-41493 Margarita Road in Temecula, adjacent to Costco and Promenade Temecula.

“This was a great collaborative effort between CBRE and Pathfinder Partners. Before the commencement of marketing, Pathfinder was able to sign multiple accretive leases that improved the shopping centers’ cash flow, a testament to the property and location,” Heitzler said. “We leveraged our proprietary database to qualify and identify a wide range of value-add buyers, private and institutional capital alike, and in turn created a competitive bidding process leading to a successful close.”

According to Brummer and Heitzler, CBRE’s broad, systematic marketing approach produced a combined total of 475 confidentiality agreements/offering memoranda distributed, and through the “managed bid” offer process, generated multiple competitive offers to purchase Bel Villaggio I-II and III. With this closing, CBRE’s NRP-West team has completed 61 retail investment sales over the last 12 months.
