MacKenzie Capital Refinances Portfolio of 10 Properties


MacKenzie Capital, LLC is pleased to announce they secured refinance proceeds for 10 assets with seven separate loans from two different lenders. The assets included nearly 100,000 sf of office/retail/flex space, a 54-slip marina, 32 multifamily units, and 553 self-storage units. The assets are in diverse submarkets such as southern Pennsylvania, the Eastern Shore, and Annapolis. The loans totaled $18.45 million. MacKenzie Capital President John Black and Vice President Brendan Harman worked with Justin Nonemaker and Eric Zagorsky of ShoreGate Partners, a privately held real estate company based in Easton, MD. ShoreGate Partners was represented by Doug Walker of McAllister, Detar, Showalter & Walker.

Sponsorship was able to rate lock a balance sheet transaction prior to the recent increase in rates to refinance the portfolio to reduce interest rate refinance risk and increase cash flow to investors. “Given the complexity of the portfolio due to its diversity of uses, submarkets, and leverage, the process was a balancing act between ease of execution and best available terms,” stated Harman. “It was a pleasure working with Eric and Justin, as well as their counsel Doug who was instrumental in getting the loans closed in an efficient manner,” elaborated Harman.
