[Midwest Division] Shopping center in Channahon offering incentives to prospective small business tenants

Shopping center in Channahon

Three generations of the Brandolino family have owned and managed commercial shopping centers locally.

Father/son duo Fiore and Jeff Brandolino purchased the shopping center at 25520 Pheasant Lane in Channahon at the corner of Route 6 and Ridge Road earlier this year.

Some of the current tenants include Mallard Point Veterinary Clinic and the Office Bar & Grill.

When they bought the center, they knew there were vacancies and had planned to get creative in finding new tenants. For any local small business looking to open shop in Channahon, they are willing to place their “bet on the winning horse.”

“Yes, we want to help out the small local business in our community,” Brandolino said in a press release. “We believe in this community and want to be part in the growth of our hometown. We currently have a vacancy that would be absolutely perfect for a barber shop or beauty salon. In fact, we already have the sign above the unit, ‘Barber Shop.’ If someone is willing to invest their heart into opening a business, we are willing to help make it a success. Based on the proposed use and business model of the tenant, we are prepared to be generous in helping them get the business up and running for the new year.”

For more information on the space available, call 815-735-1848.

Interview with Jeff Brandolino

Are there investing secrets?

When looking for an investment property, find value-add opportunities.  A property that is performing at its best can only get worse.  We look for properties that we can add value to and increase profits by rolling up our sleeves and doing what we do best!

How can we retire wealthy?

Buy Real Estate and HOLD it long term! Invest with partners and spread your money for diversity. I would rather have 50 percent of two properties than 100 percent of one.

Should I pay cash for Real Estate?

No! Rates are at an all time low. Use bank leverage while it is available at these low costs. Lock in fixed rates and let your rental income pay off the bank over time.

Has the house flipping business slowed down?

Yes. We continue to treasure hunt daily and with hard work, the deals are out there. We have built a well-oiled machine that will continue on through all market conditions.

Are you guys looking for new investors?

Not actively. But we are always open to meeting new potential investors, having the relationships in place is key for when the timing is right.

Do you sell homes or only invest?

We do it all! I focus on acquisitions and listing our assets for sale, while our amazing team of agents list and sell, sell, sell.

Jeff Brandolino And Investment Partners Acquire Former Newhall Lumber

It was a brisk October morning. The faint smell of aged timber lingering in the air. Rays of sunshine beamed through the lofts, creating a kaleidoscope of shapes on the auction floor below. After 30 years as a Newhall landmark, Newhall Lumber was up for auction. Jeff Brandolino, real estate agent and investor, recalls the emotional wave he felt as he boldly raised his number and the auctioneer declared “Sold!” That feeling of joy was short-lived when the sellers of the former Newhall Lumber rejected the final bid.

Having felt the energy, the beauty and the industry of Newhall Lumber, Brandolino wasn’t ready to let go of this property just yet. All owners (with the exception of Jeff’s father, a real estate investor from Chicago, IL) are local prominent business men who strongly believe in the growth and redevelopment of Old Town Newhall.  Their group has zero’d in on Newhall as an excellent place to invest in commercial real estate.  They see Old Town Newhall to be similar to “Old Town Pasadena” in the years to come.  “Get it while you still can,” says Brandolino.

And got it they did — After several months of letters, phone calls and emails, Jeff Brandolino and partners finally entered into contract with the Newhall Lumber sellers.   On July 7, 2014, Brandolino and partners closed escrow on the former Newhall Lumber located at 24625 Railroad Ave. Newhall, CA 91321. Brandolino and partners acquired the Newhall Lumber yard property and hold title as a limited liability company.

Brandolino and partners look forward to this old Newhall landmark taking on new life. “This is an outstanding location and the building has old charm and character with endless potential,” explains Brandolino.

The new owners are willing to offer very favorable lease terms to get a business in there right away.  They would also consider a build to suit for the right tenant. The property is also being offered as a filming location.  The building is completely vacant and can easily accommodate a large crew and equipment needed.
