California investor acquires 226-unit Prescott Valley property from Scottsdale group

Phoenix, August 7, 2018 – Colliers International in Greater Phoenix sold The Terraces at Glassford Hill apartments in Prescott Valley to California-based Virtú Investments for $47.35 million, or $209,530 per unit.

“The Terraces is irreplaceable with its unique location positioned on top of Glassford Hill. The fantastic views overlooking Prescott Valley combined with Class A quality design provide consistently high occupancy coupled with strong rents. Virtú took the time to truly understand this dynamic asset and submarket,” said Brad Cooke, executive vice president with Colliers in Greater Phoenix.

The Cooke Team negotiated the sale transaction. Virtú Investments purchased the property from Bear Holdings Group, a Scottsdale-based real estate development and investment company. Bear Holdings Group has invested in more than 30 multi-family projects in Arizona, California, Indiana, Michigan and Nevada. Bear Holdings Group acquired the property in 2016, in cooperation with The Barone Group, a San Diego-based real estate investment company. Virtú Investments is based in Larkspur, CA and has acquired 112 assets, valued at more than $2 billion and totaling more than 200,000 apartment units over the last 17 years. 

“The Cooke Team originally sold The Terraces to Bear Properties and has now sold two assets to Virtú. We are honored to be a part of both companies continued success,” said Cindy Cooke, senior executive vice president with Colliers.
