SIG Handles Large Safeway Grocery Transaction, Closing Escrow Despite Fires in CA

SIG brokers handled the transaction for a large Safeway NNN lease in Santa Rosa, finding a new buyer quickly when nearby wildfires caused an existing deal in escrow to fall through.

Working with SIG brokers is the best way to leverage top listings, lending, and marketing efforts-and creative solutions in times of natural disaster. In this deal, lead SIG broker Dan Hoogesteger, along with co-broker Andrew Chana, were able to successfully find a new buyer for the large grocery property after California wildfires nearby caused an existing buyer to back out on the last day of their contingency. The second time around, the transaction was seamless, and escrow closed quickly.
