SAN JOSE, CA-Kidder Mathews continues to grow its Bay Area commercial real estate group, adding five brokers to its downtown office and one each to its San Francisco and Redwood Shores offices. The new hires bring the firm’s roster in this region to 73 agents, with all seven brokers hailing from Grubb Ellis.
The local office welcomes veteran brokers Joe Scuncio, an office/RD specialist; Nigel Keep, investment properties; Kristopher Blais, a retail specialist; and James Viso and Shaun Enferadi, both industrial brokers. Mike McCormac, an office specialist, joins the firm’s San Francisco office as VP, and Bill Kurfess, an office/RD specialist, joins the firm’s Redwood Shores office as SVP.
“The agents we’ve hired bring a varied mix of specialties to enrich and expand our service lines in each of our offices,” said Reed Payne, EVP of brokerage services for Kidder Mathews, in a prepared statement. “We are thrilled to have this caliber of brokers join our group.”
Payne tells GlobeSt.com that, while more new hires aren’t imminent, he is always seeking new agents to join the firm. In Northern California, the company is looking to grow its property-management and appraisal divisions, having in the last 60 days hired Nanci Vega as senior property manager, and Brad Paul as head of appraisal.
“The overall vision for the company is to be recognized as the premier provider of commercial real estate services in the Western U.S.,” Payne continues. “With that as the vision, the goal is to have the highest-quality agents we can get, and these hires definitely fit that goal. We’ve hired people in almost every specialty we deal with, and they are all very capable, very strong agents.”
As GlobeSt.com recently reported, earlier this month Kidder Mathews broke ground on Motion Water Sports’ 135,000-square-foot Pacific Northwest corporate headquarters in Snoqualmie, WA. Also, in April, Kidder Mathews and Binswanger were retained by Kimberly-Clark Corp. to sell its exceptionally rare waterfront industrial property in Seattle. Located on the central waterfront at 2600 Federal Ave., the property boasts more than 2,500 linear feet of deep-water industrial shoreline area and a total land area in excess of 66 acres. It is immediately adjacent to Naval Station Everett, home of the USS Nimitz carrier battle group, and the Port of Everett main terminal.
