CCIMs connect to close a $712,000 multifamily deal

When Steve Goldman, CCIM, of NAI Knoxville in Knoxville, Tenn., and Solange Velas, CCIM, of Southland Realtors in Knoxville began negotiating the $712,000 sale of a 30-unit multifamily property in Knoxville, their shared designation gave them an immediate advantage. “Because we are both CCIMs, there is a built-in sense of trust and respect,” says Velas, who represented the buyer, Jeremy Bassett. “And although this transaction was fraught with challenges, our relationship based on honest discourse helped us work through each issue and left us both looking forward to our next transaction.” In addition, the CCIM connection “allowed me to assure my clients that we would work fairly and honestly, whatever the outcome.” Goldman represented CP Rentals.
