Our Team

As members of the Kidder Mathews Investment Group, we are located in the firm’s Seattle office. We are a team of experienced investment brokers who specialize in the purchase and sale of leased investment properties.

Every investor has a story

We are honored to work in a business that allows us to contribute to the remarkable success stories of investors. Here are a few stories from our clients.

  • An immigrant arrived in the United States with only $40. Across three decades, he progressed from working the graveyard shift at a convenience store to owning not only that store but also over a dozen others.
  • A developer constructed a retail center and managed her family property for nearly four decades, elevating the property value from $1 million to over $7 million.
  • A fisherman acquired all the land around an upcoming freeway interchange. Throughout his 50-year career, he amassed holdings exceeding $100 million as the area developed.

All of these success stories have one thing in common — time. Real estate in not a get-rich-quick scheme. In fact, it is the opposite, it's a get-rich-slowly endeavor. Patient investors reap the rewards of compounding over time.

Time in the market is more important than timing the market

We consider ourselves fortunate to have played a role in these stories. Operating in this business for almost two decades, we have witnessed the effects of compounding over time. Similar to investing, time has helped us hone our craft and compound our results. Throughout the years, we've established a systems-driven practice, ensuring meticulous attention to every detail. Commercial real estate transactions are complex and each deal is different. Our job is to assist investors in building wealth.

We are hands-on; working diligently to deliver value to our clients. We roll up our sleeves and make things happen. Whether you're an owner aiming to sell and maximize your asset's value or a buyer in search of expert guidance, our team assures you extensive market knowledge, a proven track record, and an unparalleled level of service.

We invite you to join us. Come create the next great story.

We gave Erik Swanson and Mike King a challenging assignment and they delivered. They have a great understanding of the retail investment market in the Puget Sound. Through their marketing efforts, they produced multiple offers and closed the sale in a short amount of time at our full asking price. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to sell a retail center.

I've worked with Mike and Erik for over a decade and have completed over a dozen transactions with them. They treat each transaction like it is their own and work hard to make sure nothing is missed. I highly recommend working with them.

I have had the opportunity to work with Erik and Mike on a number of purchases. They are hands on brokers that work diligently for their clients. They are sure to make your next commercial transaction a success.

Erik & Mike look out for their clients. They helped me avoid several pitfalls on a complex deal. Without their help the sale would have never happened.

Our experience listing and selling our property with Erik and Mike was nothing less than fantastic. From the first time we met all the way to closing, we felt they had everything covered. They worked hard to keep the deal moving forward and it resulted in a better than expected outcome. We would certainly recommend Erik and Mike to anyone.
