Case Studies


When an owner/operator decided it was time to sell a non-core hotel in their portfolio, Ed Denton was tasked with brokering the deal.  Confidentiality was of paramount importance as the owner did not want their employees, lender or franchise prematurely alerted to the potential sale.  Mr. Denton developed a customized marketing strategy, identified a short list of known and capable prospective buyers, authored a high-quality offering memorandum and successfully solicited multiple offers.  The asset was sold in a notably smooth transaction, achieving the client’s objective with minimal disruption to hotel operations.



Mr. Denton was tasked by a bank client with selling a pair of distressed hotels.  They were nationally franchised with Wyndham brands but suffered from significant deferred maintenance.  After taking possession of the properties through court-appointed receivership, Mr. Denton took them to market with a wide-net marketing campaign.  Within two weeks, multiple offers were received and Mr. Denton brokered the successful sale of each property above the bank’s expected sale price.
