January 27, 2021

Fayetteville, AR – Jan. 27, 2021 – CBRE announced the sale of a 19-property retail portfolio totaling over 90,000 square feet of space. The individual car dealerships were sold to Miami-based Orion Buying Corp. The seller of the portfolio is the Fleeman family, the original founders of America’s Car-Mart.

 

The car dealerships sold are located in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas. The properties provided the buyer with a unique ownership opportunity, as all 19 locations are free-standing with new eight-year lease terms with no standing debt.  

 

In addition to directly sourcing the buyer, CBRE also structured the buyer’s debt, assisted in lease negotiation with the tenant and coordinated all new third-party studies and reports.

 

“We are proud to have been able to leverage the integrated CBRE platform to help the Fleeman family successfully transition out of their legacy real estate holdings and position themselves for exciting and diverse opportunities for reinvestment,” said Will Lightfoot, Senior Vice President with CBRE Capital Markets.

 

“The original Car-Mart was founded by the Fleeman’s here in Northwest Arkansas which, as a region, has a longstanding reputation for regional, national and global entrepreneurship,” said David Erstine, First Vice President with CBRE in Fayetteville. “Since 2016, I’ve had the opportunity to work with the Fleeman family on numerous family transactions. I’m thrilled we were able to utilize CBRE’s network to find an investor for the properties and get the sale across the finish line.”
