Principal Robert Stepp of Stepp Commercial represented the seller, Paul Fuhrman, Managing Partner of Santa Monica-based Miramar Capital. Stepp and Vice President Todd Hawke of Stepp Commercial represented the individual overseas all-cash buyers.

“Foreign buyers are attracted to U.S. properties because they are able to realize a higher rate of depreciation, and coastal apartment locations like these assets are desirable due to renter demand,” said Stepp.
