Hello! Welcome to the January Newsletter for  Black Diamond Realty!
This monthly newsletter serves to  reflect  on the past year’s successes and challenges. Two thousand eighteen was a  record-breaking year  for Black Diamond and many other companies in north central WV. We exceeded our annual goals and added two strong team members, Chris Waters and Jeff Wise. North central West Virginia continues to be the shining star for the state and other areas are seeing growth as well. 

A recent article in the Dominion Post announced the improvement of West Virginia’s quality of life rating from 46 th  to 44 th  nationally ( Source: United Health Foundation's America's Health Rankings 2018 ). We feel encouraged by this growth and remember that West Virginia’s story will continue to evolve over time. Consistent growth, while maintaining a focus on the big picture, is imperative to keep West Virginia moving forward. What does the big picture look like? What should we focus on? Many believe economic growth should focus on recession-resistant industries such as healthcare, education and government. Concurrently, we need to increase the number of technology jobs and promote the continued growth of the energy sector.  

Momentum is building. Click on the button below to visit some of the  key takeaways  from 2018.
Black Diamond Realty closed out the year by  successfully securing two high profile sales . The process was exciting and challenging. Our clients put significantly reduced timelines on both deals. Each client instructed our team to secure buyers and ensure both assets closed before year end. Achieving a year-end closing was an important financial planning detail that tied to tax benefits/consequences. In representing these sellers, Black Diamond Realty secured both buyers.
The first investment offering was titled WVU Medicine Campus at Ridgeview Business Park.   The offering consisted of three buildings, totaling 30,399 (+/-) square feet, with a 1.63 acre lot, collectively sitting on 5.03 (+/-) acres. All parcels are leased to WVU Health System which is a credit rated tenant.

• 15 signed confidentiality agreements. 
• 4 offers. 
• Cash buyer secured.
The second offering is a Suburban Extended Stay Hotel that fronts I-70 at The Highlands (Cabela’s) exit in Triadelphia (Wheeling), WV. Constructed in 2012-2013, this 120-room hotel is well-positioned in the heart of the Marcellus/Utica shale O&G plays while close to numerous restaurants and big box retailers. The hotel has been voted Choice’s Suburban Hotel of the Year four times since it was constructed. 

• 17 signed confidentiality agreements. 
• 4 offers. 
• Cash buyer secured. 
Our team took on the challenge, diligently and aggressively executed our process and closed each asset the last two weeks of December . We embrace the opportunity for similar challenges in this new year. Black Diamond Realty is grateful for the trust and confidence from so many supporters. On behalf of our entire team, we wish you health, happiness and prosperity in 2019...and beyond.

On December 27th, a few of the Black Diamond team members gathered together to serve dinner for the guests of Rosenbaum Family House . The team prepared delicious tacos for roughly 30-40 people with assortment of festive Christmas cookies and donuts from Peace, Love and Little Donuts for dessert.

As it is every year, the overwhelming joy and gratitude was a wonderful gift in itself. For information about the Rosenbaum Family House, and how you can help, click the button below.
