RIVER OAKS 148 Old Will Hunter Road Athens, GA 30606

While the private equity owner of River Oaks was desirous to sell the property, operations had languished, resulting in a diminished value for the property. In an effort to boost the value of the asset prior to sale, Stratus acted as asset manager to oversee operational changes. New property management was brought in and light renovations were performed to boost aesthetics, occupancy levels, and resulting NOI. Once ready for market, Stratus marketed the property on its national platform and sold the property at nearly a 20% premium to the original valuation of the property when Stratus became involved.

Stratus works diligently to procure opportunities for clients that are overlooked by the general market, using all resources available. During one such scouting mission, Stratus uncovered the opportunity to purchase a set of three assets from a family trust, who was aiming to re-organize its assets and redeploy its capital into new ventures. These three properties were a perfect fit for two separate clients who had differing acquisition parameters. Stratus was able to facilitate the sale with two properties selling to one private equity fund, and one to property to a separate fund. The sales process was streamlined..

Stratus was tasked with the sale of The Preserve at Tumbling Creek, a fractured condo community adjacent to the University of North Georgia. Prior to sale, Stratus made recommendations to increase the appeal of the asset and ensuing value. Notably, property management was transitioned to a more responsive firm, various improvements were made to the grounds to increase curb appeal and rents, service contracts re-negotiated, and a large number of remaining condo units were purchased back to gain voting control of the HOA. These efforts combined with a comprehensive and thoughtful marketing campaign, generated for the client a sale price 46% higher than initial valuations!
