CARROLL recently executed another real estate transaction, finalizing the sale of four multifamily communities throughout the Southeast. The four properties represented nearly 1,300 units of the company’s portfolio and are the latest transaction “fueling CARROLL’s momentum as [the company] begins looking toward the new year.” Michael Patrick Carroll, Founder and CEO of the privately-held real estate company, spearheaded the transaction.

In response to the transaction, M Patrick Carroll stated, “The entire portfolio represented communities in highly desirable Sun Belt markets that were acquired at an attractive basis with ample operational and capital upside potential. The deals outperformed original projections and provided an excellent product for our residents.”

Properties sold in the transaction included Edgewater Plantation, ARIUM Cumberland, ARIUM Mooresville, and ARIUM South Oaks.

The first, Edgewater Plantation, was acquired in 2016 and represented the company’s first acquisition in the Charleston metropolitan statistical area (MSA). The team identified the opportunity as a way to capitalize on Mount Pleasant’s population growth, excellent schools, strong work base, and high quality of life.

The latter three — ARIUM Cumberland, located in the Atlanta MSA; ARIUM Mooresville, located in the Charlotte MSA; and ARIUM South Oaks, located in Nashville MSA — were acquired in 2019. Each property was uniquely identified as a location near a major employment center and areas offering high job and population growth. Each also boasted a favorable business climate, low cost of living, and overall quality of life.

The firm leveraged a value-add investment strategy for all four properties, renovating unit interiors and underutilized amenity spaces.

M Patrick Carroll reported, “After executing our respective business plans and effectively balancing the remaining enhancement opportunity for the next owner, we elected to monetize our investment at the optimal point in the current cycle to maximize returns for our investors.”

Earlier in November, CARROLL, in partnership with PGIM Real Estate, executed three portfolio sales totaling $1.1 billion. In total, 12 communities with 4,121 units across Florida, North Carolina, and South Carolina were disposed of. Included in the sale were six Raleigh communities (ARIUM Southpoint, ARIUM Kildaire, ARIUM Weston, ARIUM Lake Lynn, ARIUM Lake Johnson, and ARIUM Trailwood); three Charleston communities (ARIUM North Charleston, ARIUM St. Ives, and ARIUM Mt. Pleasant); and three South Florida communities (ARIUM Boca Raton, Centro at Davie by ARIUM, and ARIUM Boynton Beach). The 12 communities were part of three separate joint venture transactions between institutional fund vehicles managed by PGIM Real Estate and CARROLL in 2018.

In September 2021, CARROLL exited two adjacent multifamily communities, Flats on the Trinity and Estates on the Trinity, in Fort Worth, Texas. Totaling 405 units, both mid-rise riverfront properties were acquired four years prior through CARROLL’s institutional fund vehicle, Carroll Multifamily Real Estate Fund V, LP. Both properties are well-located in one of Fort Worth’s most desirable downtown neighborhoods and overlook the Trinity River with direct access to the Clearfork Trinity Trail.

Earlier this year, the firm sold ARIUM Park West — a 342-unit garden community in suburban West Houston. The firm had purchased the property six years ago and repositioned the apartment community by implementing a value-add strategy.

The company also sold three suburban properties in the first quarter — ARIUM Pinnacle Ridge in Raleigh, North Carolina; ARIUM Towne Lake in Houston, Texas; and The Marin by ARIUM in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Together, these properties were valued at more than $170 million and represented more than 900 individual units.

However, the year has not been all about dispositions, although leveraging today’s high real estate values has proven to be a strategic move for the firm.

CARROLL also acquired 282 units in Atlanta, bringing the present number of units under management in the metro area to 6,500. It also acquired Ariza Forest View, a 283-unit community in Santa Rosa Beach. Rebranded as ARIUM Santa Rosa Beach, the recently built (2020) garden-style community exhibits strong occupancy and rent growth in a supply-constrained sub-market.

Earlier this year, CARROLL purchased five multifamily communities in St. Petersburg, Florida; Palm Harbor, Florida; Ocoee, Florida; and Las Vegas, Nevada. Adding nearly 2,400 units to its portfolio, CARROLL acquired the assets for a total of $495 million.

In addition to its high transaction velocity, CARROLL has made headway as a premier property management partner for U.S. real estate ventures. In September, the firm announced the addition of its eighth third-party assignment in 12 months, adding up to 2,500 units under the firm’s management.

Since its 2004 inception, CARROLL has raised more than $2.9 billion of equity through CARROLL-sponsored funds and joint ventures. CARROLL has also successfully purchased, developed, or sold more than $13.8 billion of real estate.
