November 25, 2019— As part of Kidder Mathews’ West Coast expansion, it has acquired the assets of Management Consulting Group, Inc. (MCGI), a Sacramento property management firm that has been providing asset, advisory, and property management services in the Sacramento market for more than 15 years. MCGI has a portfolio of 735,000 square feet of office, R&D, industrial, and retail properties and four commercial owners associations.
Kidder Mathews is the fastest growing independently owned commercial real estate firm on the West Coast, with 800 real estate professionals and staff in 22 offices in Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona, and Nevada. The acquisition of MCGI fits with the firm’s plan to expand its property management service line on the West Coast.
The MCGI team joining Kidder Mathews is led by senior vice president, Sallie Merker. She has 20 years of property management experience, which includes directing an 8.2 million square foot portfolio comprised of national contracts, national and private investors and developers, REITs and private banking groups.
Merker will lead Kidder Mathews’ Property Management Services in the firm’s Sacramento market. She will be responsible for managing diversified assets, developing and directing the property teams, along with client development and support and overall quality control in service delivery.
“Sallie’s expertise will be valuable as we expand further into this important market,” said Keith Kaiser, president of Kidder Mathews Property Management Services.
Kidder Mathews attributes its fast-growing success to its unique platform, and to the national trend of consolidation in the commercial real estate industry among publicly held firms, which is typically less favorable to professional service providers. Kidder Mathews is a privately held firm that is known for its strong marketing, research support, and streamlined management structure. Due to the attractive culture, the firm boasts 53 Best Places to Work Awards in various publications in California, Washington, and Oregon.
