Stronghill September Spotlight: Flexing Our Closing Strength

At Stronghill Capital, we close deals quickly through a result-oriented process that is driven by our strong team of veteran real estate professionals.

Take this Stronghill Spotlight as an example:

We recently closed a $9,600,000 cash-out refinance of an 11-unit retail property in East Elmhurst, NY. The property, located on Astoria Blvd. only one-half mile from La Guardia International Airport, is well positioned in the borough of Queens. Because of a unique tenant mix, which includes a bagel shop, bar & grill, coin laundry, pizza restaurant, and salon (to name a few), and 100% occupancy, Stronghill was able to provide long-term fixed-rate financing. Additionally, the borrower, who has owned the property since 2004, was able to satisfy a maturing high-interest mortgage, lowering his rate by 200bps.
