“D.C. is a top market for our expansion as we continue our growth trajectory through the mid-Atlantic and into the Northeast,” Bill Pedersen, Matthews’ managing director of the east region, told Commercial Observer. “Having the opportunity to have someone the caliber of Josh, not only as a top producer but also a tremendous leader, who can be a pillar for us to lead our charge into the market, made now the right time to expand.”
“Matthews is a disrupting force among the traditional brokerage shops, and the opportunity to be part of that explosive growth story in bringing brand recognition to Washington, D.C., and the mid-Atlantic area, which has been a largely uncovered region, was an opportunity I could not pass up,” Ein told CO. “My main responsibility is to service and grow my existing client base and execute the sale of net lease retail investment sales throughout the mid-Atlantic region. I will also assist in recruiting agents as we grow.”
“Having entered the industry with a national firm in 2012, I’ve experienced similar dynamics to what new agents face today and believe the work ethic, collaborative culture, and values instilled by the management team will lead to enormous success in the future,” he said.
Robert Khodadadian has long had a simple philosophy about selling real estate. The way he sees it, there are approximately a million buildings in the city, and the broker that gets to sell any one among the multitude that will hit the auctioning block at a given moment is, sometimes, simply the person who happens to pitch their services to the right seller at the right time.
