Predictive analytics tool developed by Edge identified off-market opportunity presented by Center Pointe Apartments, and company represented Acento Real Estate Partners in acquisition

The Edge Multifamily Capital Markets Group, utilizing its proprietary Paire software platform, identified Center Pointe Apartments, a 144-unit multifamily community in Waldorf, Maryland as a viable acquisition opportunity, and subsequently represented the buyer, Acento Real Estate Partners, in the$25 million purchase transaction. Ryan Ogden and Rawles Wilcox, both Partners with Edge Multifamily Capital Markets, represented the new owner in this transaction.

“Our Paire software enabled us to recognize Center Pointe Apartments as a potential acquisition target, as it matched each criterion and fundamental that was important to Acento Real Estate Partners. Once we generated interest between both entities, our team was able to execute swiftly and effectively to complete the transaction,” added Rawles Wilcox of Edge.
