Kidder Mathews, Lakewood, Evergreen Court, Colonial Court, Garden Park, Sage Homes Northwest, Puget Sound

Seattle, Wash. (January 4, 2023) – A three-property apartment portfolio that includes Evergreen Court, Colonial Court, and Garden Park in Lakewood, Washington sold for $20,490,000 in an off-market sale by Kidder Mathews. The seller is a private local owner.

Brandon Lawler, Jerrid Anderson, and Dylan Simon of the Simon and Anderson team — a multifamily investment team based in Kidder Mathews’ Seattle headquarters — represented the buyer, Sage Homes Northwest, a large single family home builder and owner that is expanding its multifamily footprint in the Puget Sound.

The garden-style portfolio is made up of the following communities:

Garden Park Apartments: 49 units at 12802-12878 Lincoln Avenue SW
Colonial Court Apartments: 41 total units at 9120 Lawndale Avenue SW, 9104 Newgrove Avenue SW, and 9119 Kenwood Avenue SW
Evergreen Court Apartments: 40 units at 12805-12809 47th Avenue SW

The properties are a combination of 1960s and 1970s construction — the majority with original finishes. The buyer is planning to perform a value-add and bring rents up to market value.

“We want to thank the buyer for sticking with this transaction,” said Lawler. “From July when we went under contract to closing in January, a lot has changed in the financial markets. Having a very experienced and capable buyer was vital for this transaction to close given current volatile market conditions. We were excited to play a role in this sale and continue our footprint in the South Puget Sound.”
