Sperry Van Ness Deals Include Tacos Jaliscos, Land in Mesa


Peter McQuaid, Greg Vanlerberghe and Erin Schrauth, retail leasing agents at the Phoenix office of Sperry Van Ness, represented the seller in negotiating the $300,000 sale of the 15,165 SF Tacos Jalisco restaurant at 7150 E. Thomas Rd. in Scottsdale.

The building is a freestanding, drive-up former restaurant that closed last year. It has been marketed several times with multiple parties and Sperry Van Ness was finally able to find a buyer and close escrow within 60 days.

“Our team was happy to help our seller find a solution to the property he wanted to dispose of,” McQuaid said. “We’re thankful we could get the seller a fair price.”

The new owner is actively seeking a tenant to fill the space and will most likely stay a restaurant use.

Sperry Van Ness also negotiated the sale of a 5-acre retail pad in Mesa. McQuaid and  Vanlerberghe represented a local active buyer to purchase the property at the SWC of Power and Ray roads in Mesa. The property closed at a sales price of $1.525M.

“This parcel is in a prime location just outside of the Phoenix Mesa Gateway Airport area,” Vanlerberghe said. “We see great value in this property with potential sales to hotels, retail pads and build to suit opportunities.”

The property is across from Vestar’s Gilbert Gateway Towne Center and is located just south of the Loop 202 Santan Freeway.
