National Firm Opens MN Office with Kurt Sauer Spearheading the Launch

Minneapolis Matthews Real Estate Investment Services, a commercial real estate investment services and technology firm, announces the opening of its first Minnesota office in Minneapolis. Ranked as the 16th most populous MSA in the nation, Minneapolis is home to over 3.7 million residents and a thriving commercial real estate industry. The office will cater to regional and out-of-state investors in various real estate sectors, including multifamily, industrial, retail, leasing, and more.


To spearhead the opening of the office and recruitment efforts, Matthews™ appointed Minnesota native Kurt Sauer as the Minneapolis Market Leader. After a notable career in the NHL, Sauer has established himself as a successful Midwest broker, working for both a large national firm as well as a local boutique brokerage prior to joining Matthews™.


“I’m excited to bring Matthews’ industry-leading platform and technology to agents and clients across Minnesota,” Sauer said. “The Matthews™ spirit of innovation and teamwork will be very attractive to the Minnesota marketplace, and the culture is a perfect fit for me.”


In his role, Sauer will work alongside Matthews’ Managing Director of the Central U.S., Matt Fitzgerald, to recruit top-level talent and develop Matthews’ brand across the market. In addition, Sauer will manage day-to-day operations at the Minneapolis office.


“We are excited to bring Kurt into the Matthews™ company as he brings a varied background of both athletic and business success, which represents what we are all about,” Fitzgerald said. “He competed at the highest level in the NHL and then built a successful real estate career with a client-focused attitude of service and execution. He will bring an exciting level of leadership and intensity to Matthews™.”


This is the 15th office for the national brokerage, and the third to open this year. Executing an aggressive expansion strategy, Matthews™ is committed to having a physical presence in the country’s emerging and top markets. Throughout the next year, Matthews™ aims to recruit 50 agents to join the Minneapolis office.


“Our growth across the U.S. will continue to be thoughtful yet aggressive,” Executive Vice President and Managing Director David Harrington said. “The Midwest is an important part of our long-term strategy. As a top 20 metro with a two percent unemployment rate and a very resilient economy, the Minneapolis-Saint Paul area is the right target for Matthews™ to enter and promptly disrupt with our industry-leading commercial real estate services and technology.”


The Matthews™ Minneapolis temporary office is located at 1650 West End Blvd., Suite 100, St. Louis Park, MN. For more information or to contact a Matthews™ specialized agent, please visit www.matthews.com.
