MESQUITE, TX — Atlanta-headquartered ARA, the largest privately-held, full-service investment advisory brokerage firm in the nation focusing exclusively on the multihousing industry is pleased to announce the sale of Trinity Place Apartments, a 267-unit institutional class ‘B’ community located in the Dallas suburb of Mesquite, TX.

 “This well-built asset should be a strong investment for years to come, a solid cash flow performer for the Investor,” states ARA Dallas Investment Salesperson Richard Furr, who together with ARA Principals Brian O’Boyle Sr. and Brian Murphy led the exclusive marketing effort for the property.

Built in 1985, Trinity Place is located in an extremely diverse neighborhood: retail opportunities, distribution facilities, single-family residences, business parks, and educational campuses are all within close proximity. The property has been well-maintained and boasts an average unit size of 987 square feet. Trinity Place is also unusual in that each residential building includes an elevator, and all units have fire sprinklers. During marketing, ARA led 25 tours and generated a number of offers.
