Chozick Realty marketed the properties generating multiple competitive offers on behalf of the owners. 

“The interest the brokers at Chozick Realty generated demonstrates the strength of the Hartford & New Britain markets and the strong rental upside through continued apartment renovations and unit reconfigurations,” said Pappas. 

Chozick Realty represented the sellers in all three complexes as well as procured the purchaser, Up Realty LLC, a New York-based investment group.

This is the second time Chozick Realty has facilitated the sale of both Candlewood and Mark Twain Apartments.
