DALLAS, July 2, 2018 – Institutional Property Advisors (IPA), a division of Marcus & Millichap (NYSE: MMI), announces the sale of the Quality Estates Value-Add Portfolio, an eight-property, 2,048-unit multifamily portfolio located throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex.
“The portfolio gives the new owner tremendous first-generation repositioning upside,” says Will Balthrope, IPA executive director. “Constructed between 1977 and 1985 and held by a single owner for an average of 28 years, the properties have been well maintained by long-term in-house management and have little-to-no deferred maintenance.”
Balthrope, Drew Kile, IPA senior director, Joey Tumminello, IPA director, Al Silva, Marcus & Millichap senior director and Ford Braly, Marcus & Millichap senior associate, represented the seller, a private investor based in Canada, and procured the buyer, Texas-based Exponential Property Group.
“The Quality Estates Portfolio’s exceptional upside makes it unlike any other recent Metroplex multifamily sale,” adds Kile. “Current market rents are significantly lower than the competition, and 95 percent of the units are prime for value-add repositioning.”
“At this point in the cycle, untapped portfolio opportunities are difficult to come by,” comments Tumminello. “The buyer brought the long-term management company in house and gains economies of scale by purchasing a sizeable and well-diversified portfolio.”

• Broadway Manor, 134 units, Garland• Quail Ridge, 292 units, Grand Prairie
