  • 625 & 627 Sligo Avenue – Rory S. Coakley and Kathleen Meyer represented the owners of two commercial properties, Sligo Creek, LLC, (625 Sligo Avenue) and Sligo LLC (627 Sligo Avenue). These were two separate transactions with Redrock Films (Producers of ‘Shark Week’ films) purchasing 625 Sligo Avenue for $430,000 and Almaz Gethun purchasing 627 Sligo Avenue for $395,000.
  • 8209 2nd Avenue – Coakley Realty performed a commercial appraisal for a non-profit group for a property at 8209 2nd Avenue. The appraisal was utilized in the transfer of real property from a private owner to the non-profit group.
