The Kirkland Company, which recently handled the sale to two Elizabethtown apartment buildings, credited community development in a news release announcing the transfers.

Brandon Wilson, Brian Devlin and John Seale were credited with brokering the deal between DMF-Holdings Corp. and the seller, Homestead Rental Properties, which transferred Silver Creek Court, building in 2010, and Cardinal Creek Apartments, established in 2006. The sale prices were $4.8 million and $3.7 million, respectively, according to figures from the Hardin County clerk’s office.

“Elizabethtown has experienced a revitalization,” Wilson said. “Elizabethtown has done an incredible job with downtown. There are an estimated 175 new jobs and 25 new businesses opened in the last several years.”

The representatives see more economic promise ahead for the community

“The manufacturing industry employs over 9,200 workers in Elizabethtown,” Devlin said. “As more manufacturing companies head south of Louisville, expect Elizabethtown to reap the benefits of the added jobs.”

The Kirkland Company is headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee and specializes in the sale of apartment communities in nine states across the Southeast.
