Gateway Shopping Center-Full Service Brokerage

About the Investment

Initially brought on by theLandlord to lease the 5,000 SF of vacancy at the 15,696 SF strip center inOntario, OH. We successfully executed 3 separate lease transactions and brought the property to 100% occupancy. Once stabilized, we positioned the property on the market for sale at an 8.18% cap rate and closed within 60 days at$2,000,000 (8.50% cap). This project showcases our full-scale brokerage capabilities, from lease up and stabilization, to ultimate disposition.


  • Ontario is a small tertiary market of OH
  • Interest rate environment started to become problematic in Q1 2023

  • Negotiated the early exercising of the anchor tenants option to get the buyer more comfortable with the upcoming expiration
