MEMPHIS, TN., - In the midst of an economic recession and a real estate sales market some call the worst ever - Crye-Leike Commercial Memphis is set to record its 3rd Best Sales & Lease Quarter Ever. Pushing the company's commercial division to this achievement by most accounts is a single purchase transaction representing the Conwood Company, LLC of Memphis valued in excess of $19-million.

 

"This has been months in the making," said Mack Browder, Senior Broker with Crye-Leike Commercial in Memphis. "The Conwood Company had been looking to acquire a large industrial property and I was thrilled to help company officials find and negotiate the purchase of a new facility at the Chickasaw Industrial Park in Memphis."

 

The 787,500 square foot Chickasaw facility was owned by an affiliate of JP Morgan Bank and was previously leased to Hewlett Packard. The purchase represents a continued commitment in the MidSouth by the Conwood Company - which has had a presence in Memphis for more than 200 years.

 

"I am pleased to be engaged by a large international corporation as its exclusive agent in locating this facility," said Browder. "This deal ranks in the top 10 real estate transactions I have completed. Working with large, well-known law firms and large nationally known real estate firms is always interesting and rewarding."
