Marcus & Millichap had a sales contract for the hotel within weeks of putting it on the market.

“There are only nine hotels in Pensacola Beach,” David Altman, senior associate in Marcus & Millichap’s Fort Lauderdale office, said in a prepared statement. “Due to the high barriers to enter this market and through a targeted marketing campaign, we were successful in fielding offers and entering into a sales contract within three weeks of bringing the property to market.”

The seller’s representatives were Altman and his Marcus & Millichap colleagues David Greenberg, senior managing director investments; Robert S. Hunter, first vice president investments; and Gabriel Shamay, an associate of the brokerage firm. The team also procured the buyer, a limited liability company based in Texas.
