CCIMs connect to close a $3.4 million retail deal.

“Mailbridge was the vehicle that helped make the deal happen,” explains George Renz, CCIM, of Renz and Renz Real Estate Brokerage in Gilroy, Calif. Barbara K. Hokel, CCIM, of NAI Ruhl and Ruhl Commercial in West Des Moines, Iowa, contacted Renz about a 66,512-sf retail property in Waterloo, Iowa, he had recently listed on CCIM MailBridge for his client, Cedarloo Partners. Soon thereafter, Hokel represented M & G Capital LLC in the more than $3.4 million purchase. And though she and Renz have yet to meet in person, Hokel says that online networking platforms such as CCIM MailBridge are “always beneficial.” Renz agrees: “This is my fourth deal in two years directly due to MailBridge,” he says.
