Palm Beach Gardens Based Mortgage Bankers Arrange Refinancing


Randy Rienas of Compass Commercial Mortgage, Inc. has successfully placed a $7.0MM loan refinancing for Golden Shoppes, LLC; the owner of a retail / automotive retail center located in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Improvements consist of three (3) one-story, retail / automotive retail buildings containing 39,334 ± SF and situated on 6.53 ± Acres. The improvements were constructed in 2004 and were recently resealed and painted. The property is currently 93% leased. Major tenants include: Tires Choice, Master Tech Automotive, Mobil Lube Express, Miami Grill and Jimmy Johns.

The property is located on the south side of Okeechobee Boulevard approximately 0.75 ± miles west of Jog Road and 1.25 ± miles west of Florida’s Turnpike. The area is a major commercial retail and residential corridor. The property receives approximately 52,000 ± vehicles per day.

"This property is a gem. It has a great tenant mix with long term leases and no deferred maintenance. The owner is an experienced commercial real estate developer who understands the unique challenges facing retail properties; how to play to its strengths and mitigate its weaknesses.” Rienas said. “The biggest challenges we faced on this transaction were the cash out and limited personal recourse requirements of the loan. After narrowing down the target audience, my firm was able to identify a prominent South Florida banking institution who understood the market and the unique nature of this transaction”.
