  3. Where to place funds from proceeds of sale.

  2. Marketed the site as a sound and stable investment to maximize value.
  3. IRE suggested several items including a 1031 Exchange and a Deferred Sales Trust™.

When the buyer was asked about the process, M. Curreri says, “Justin and the Investment Real Estate team were great in the sale of our self storage facility. Justin was fantastic to work with and tried to always make himself available for calls or emails any time of the day. Despite some challenges along the way, the end result was the successful sale of our facility. Thank you, IRE!”
