Ron Ross, CCIM, and Terry O’Neil, CCIM
As the world has seemingly turned upside down in recent months, with a global pandemic leading to economic and public health crises, it’s important that life goes on. And for commercial real estate, business also goes on, though in a slightly modified manner.
Ron Ross, CCIM, and Terry O’Neil, CCIM, with Compass Commercial Real Estate Services in Bend, Ore., completed a $8.63 million deal for an office property that began earlier in 2020, well before COVID-19 wreaked havoc on American soil.
The partners helped Schrapf Investments LCC acquire a five-building, 69,000-sf office property in Eugene, Ore., all while the pandemic created tumult across the country. The location, known as Country Club Professional Center, sits on 4.5 acres, with total occupation at 96 percent at the time of the deal.
Negotiations began earlier this year, before the pandemic. Despite the instability that came with COVID-19’s spread across the U.S. in March and April, the two parties continued to move forward with negotiations. The key to the deal, Ross says, was the buyer’s long-term plans for the property. Scharpf Investments expects
to hold onto the asset for decades, meaning the immediate uncertainty is less of a concern with a horizon stretching that far into the future.
“The buyer’s long-term investment horizons provide them with the ability to not be overly concerned with the short-term volatility,” Ross says.
Scharpf Investments is currently speaking with the more than 30 tenants on maintaining and extending leases, though the new owners plan to upgrade different areas of the five buildings upon turnover.
Ross credits the success of helping the buyer achieve its goal of taking ownership of the Country Club Professional Center to a comfortable, trusting working relationship with his partner, Terry O’Neil. Both CCIM designees, the two can leverage their experience and industry knowledge to help clients – even in
times as tumultuous as these.
“Terry’s my business partner on many real estate deals,” Ross says. “It is awesome having his CCIM-trained expertise riding shotgun.”
