Ekovich stated, “working with both a buyer and seller with an outstanding grasp of complex issues, that have the staff to devote to a quick close was essential in getting this transaction closed on December 31st. This is thirteenth golf course in which I have personally represented ClubLink on in the US. Their expertise in both real estate business transactions and the golf industry; as well as their entrepreneurial platform allowed them to make quick business decisions, implement a very quick due diligence process and close a transaction faster than any other institutional client in the business. The transaction was closed in 14 days while working with a receiver, nine attorneys on a very complex transaction. National Golf & Resort Properties Group has brokered 49 courses in less than 35 months, however, this is the first transaction in that time period that closed in such a short period of time. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with the professional staff members and other external professionals affiliated with a seller and buyer.”
