The asset sold for $710,000.

John Brennan and Erik Lundberg, investment specialists in Marcus & Millichap’s Brooklyn office, had the exclusive listing to market the property on behalf of the seller, a private investor.  The buyer, a private investor, was secured and represented by Brennan and Lundberg.
