"In the spring of 2016 we acquired a large portfolio of Dollar General locations across the Midwest with the intent of reselling the sites to individual high net worth and exchange buyers. To assist us in our efforts we engaged Bryan along with several other well-known national brokerage firms to help us dispose of the pool. In the face of growing supply and an increasing cap rate environment, Bryan not only gave important insight and market color, but outperformed his peers in all facets of the process including; LOI generation, contracts signed, and ultimately closing sales on a larger portion of his listings at prices closer to ask than his competition. We will continue to use and recommend Bryan for future opportunities In the Dollar Store space."
