Located in the thriving area of North East Las Vegas, Las Brisas De Cheyenne commercial property has been waiting for the perfect buyer to come along to take it from Distressed to Fabulous! This extremely challenging sale also possessed a unique opportunity to enhance and create a value add property that could ultimately be turned into a long term stabilized asset. Pat Sauter, Art Carll-Tangora, and Antone Brazill, CCIM, Advisors with NAI Vegas represented 3D Investments in the purchase of this distressed property.

Las Brisas De Cheyenne is feeling the winds of change with the new ownership who plans to renovate the 176 garden-style apartment home community to provide a higher quality standard of living. In addition to the upcoming renovations, Las Brisas is surrounded by new construction. The upcoming industrial area is now home to several facilities including the new Amazon Distribution Center and new Fanatics Center.

Due to the proximity of the incoming businesses, Las Brises has the potential to become a Live, Work and Play community. “This was a very uncommon opportunity,” stated Art Carll-Tangora of NAI Vegas, “Las Brisas only had 50% occupancy and required us to find the right buyer who recognized the potential and was willing to act.”

"Art and the Las Vegas Multifamily team were able to provide us with all the necessary information in a short timeframe. Their knowledge proved to be instrumental, overcoming the challenges presented by the ongoing rehabilitation of over 40% of the property which allowed us to close all cash in less than 30 days from execution. This is one of many successful transactions we have closed with Art, Pat, Antone and look forward to many more."

- Dan Appello, 3D Investments

Pat Sauter added, “The Las Brisas transaction presented a major challenge in determining the value and identifying a buyer who could recognize the unique opportunity and quickly perform on the transaction.  The property was in the middle of a complete renovation and was not only 50% occupied but also a large number of units were in various stages of tear down and uninhabitable.

Through our extensive contacts and knowledge of the market including details of the costs and timing of construction and lease-up we were able to show investors the above market returns available through the completion of the renovations.

In turn we were also able to satisfy the seller’s expectation of price, short due diligence (10 days) and closing (20 days).”
