Trucking Company Buys Larger Downtown St. Louis Property

Hilliker Corporation represents both buyer and seller.

St. Louis, MO, September 18, 2015 --( Hilliker Corporation, a St. Louis owned and managed commercial real estate company, recently helped a local trucking company purchase a facility with more land and shop space while remaining downtown.

Baron’s Express, a licensed freight shipping and trucking company founded in 1988, purchased a 53-year-old building originally built by Nooter Corporation for $600,000. Located at 1120 S. Second St., the 4,800-square-foot property sits on a 3.8 acre lot. Baron’s Express operated out of its previous location at 900 S. 13th St. since 1991.

“The larger shop and great highway access will be a huge benefit for us,” said company president Bob Mahacek. “We’re a small, family-owned local trucking company that hauls containers in and out of the St. Louis area rail yards, so this is a perfect location since we wanted to remain downtown.”

Hilliker Corporation broker Patrick McKay represented the seller, MU Investment Property, LLC and the buyer, Rutger Real Estate and Investment Company.

Hilliker Corporation, which targets regional and national entrepreneurs, is St. Louis’ largest locally owned independent commercial real estate company located at 1401 S. Brentwood Blvd. The firm’s agents, who each average over 15 years of experience, have completed more than 10,000 sales and leases for industrial, office, retail and institutional clients since its inception in 1985.
