Another Big Sale For Blueprint Healthcare Real Estate Advisors

Fresh off their top spot in our 2017 broker rankings (in terms of number of deals, properties and units/beds transacted), Blueprint Healthcare Real Estate Advisors seems to be eyeing that top spot for 2018 too, announcing that it represented a public REIT in its recent disposition of 20 Genesis Healthcare-operated skilled nursing facilities.
