Highline and Sefira retained Focus Real Estate Services to handle leasing and property management at Cypress Point Office Park, and the property’s net operating income increased by more than 35 percent in less than 30 months.

“At this stage in the cycle when most real estate is fully priced, you really have to roll up your sleeves and immerse yourself into your properties operations to add value,” Highline president and founder David Moret said in a prepared statement.

Bret Felberg and Jeff Morris of brokerage firm JLL represented Highline and Sefira in their sale of the Tampa office complex to an affiliate of New York-based Loeb Partners. – Mike Seemuth
