    Acquisition Sourcing:  Working with a private equity investment firm, Mr. Denton sourced a portfolio of five nationally franchised, upscale hotel properties spread across three states.  Mr. Denton negotiated the purchase terms with the seller, underwrote the portfolio, negotiated franchise terms and assisted with securing a joint-venture partner and lender for this $68,500,000 transaction.  In cooperation with the operations team, franchisors, attorneys and equity and debt partners, Mr. Denton orchestrated the simultaneous multi-state closing under a private REIT structure.

    Receivership:  A community Bank engaged Mr. Denton with less than two weeks notice to takeover a portfolio of ten apartment properties. Mr. Denton was appointed as receiver by a Virginia Circuit Court under an emergency court order and then immediately took over possession and management of the properties.  After stabilizing the assets and addressing immediate tenant and life-safety concerns during the first 45 days, Mr. Denton developed and executed a marketing strategy for the portfolio.  After receiving multiple offers, he negotiated the sale of the properties individually to maximize value.  The portfolio sold for 98% of the appraised value and the Bank was able to book a recovery.
