Deer Harbor Marina

Kidder Mathews created a sale that satisfied the needs of the seller's family estate, where prior the seller had met with no success in his direct marketing efforts.

Project Outline

Kidder Mathews received the exclusive disposition assignment for this "Class A" marina development project located in the northwest corner of Orcas Island. The owner/developer of the project, due to family estate issues, had been trying to sell the marina project independently for over a year. Kidder Mathews devised a customized marina and resort owner prospect list for this assignment that included over 3,000 entries throughout the United States and Canada. The property sold for $4.4 million to a California-based marina owner/manager.


Kidder Mathews transformed an overshopped marina investment into a directly marketed investment offering that generated a large amount of inquires from all over the United States and Canada.

Kidder Mathews had close participation in what turned out to be a complicated due diligence and financing process for the buyer and pushed it toward a successful closing of sale.
