Burleson shopping center sold to local investor group

A Burleson shopping center was recently sold to Bloomfield Frontline Burleson Retail Llc., a syndication partnership set up by managing partners and local real estate brokers and investors Steve Fithian and Thomas K. Wilson.

The 17,860-square-foot center, 1055 SW Wilshire Blvd., was sold by SPCP Group VI Llc. Built in 2008, it has tenants Cato Fashions, Shoe Show, Fred Loya/Rodney D. Young Insurance, World Finance Corp. and Perla Dental.

Fithian is of Sperry Van Ness/Visions Commercial and Wilson is of Wilson Investment Properties. Clint Montgomery of Sperry Van Ness/Visions represented the shopping center seller.

Real estate syndication investing is a way for investors to pool their money to buy properties, of each investor owning a percentage of the shares in the property.

“Because the Texas market is booming, it’s becoming more of a challenge for investors to individually find quality investments,” Fithian said. “As a result, syndication investing is becoming popular because it enables an investor to participate in larger and higher-quality investments that they wouldn’t be able to participate in on their own.”
