Hahn, Jeff Sherman and Trevor Koskovich with Colliers International in Greater Phoenix handled the marketing and sale of the Solano Terrace Apartments. 3rd Avenue Investments of Phoenix sold the property to California-based Investment Concepts. Financing was arranged through Fidelity BanCorp Funding.

The property is surrounded by convenient grocery stores, as well as two nearby shopping malls.
