BH Malls, LLC has retained Bryan Shaffer, President of SLS Investments to sell the Shops at East Hills for $15M.

“In today’s market it’s rare to find a value added mall opportunity in California for under $85 square foot. For the smart developer, the great freeway location and amazing growth in the area make this an exceptional opportunity,” said Shaffer.

Shaffer was amazed that the first day the property was on the market he had more than 100 calls. He added, “I had buyers who wanted to make offers before they even visited the site. I explained we want the buyer who will close for sure and understands the property.”

When asked why he received the assignment, Shaffer explained, “SLS is mainly an investor, advisor and financier, but with my close friendship with the owner and my experience selling over $1.2 Billion in properties over the last five years for a large Japanese company here in California, it made sense to get us involved. It very similar to a center I sold a few years back and our strategy worked great for both the buyer and the seller.”

“I love properties like this where the buyer will have the ability to create something new. When I speak at conferences or on Television, I always tell people that the true joy in real estate is making the property better for the community and tenants,” explained Shaffer.
