Scott Smith, who transferred from the Lee Orange offi ce to Phoenix this past year, was instrumental in the transaction process. “The buyer was looking for a higher yield on a quality property and was willing to look outside of California and he found both with the IMS facility,” Smith said. “Arizona’s growth prospects were also appealing,”
