National Firm Expands Capital Markets Team and Leases New Office in Chicago
Chicago — Matthews Real Estate Investment Services™, a commercial real estate investment services and technology firm, is continuing its efforts to expand in the Midwest by growing the company’s Chicago office. In addition to building its Chicago sales division, Matthews™ has leased an amenity-packed office steps away from the city’s vibrant Fulton Market neighborhood.
Matthews™ has become a significant player in the Chicago market since it arrived in late 2021. The Chicago office is a hub for the firm’s debt and equity services division, Matthews™ Capital Markets. Along with the office expansion came the addition of several notable hires, including Finley Askin, Ian Luscombe, Brad Barham, John Solari, and Jacob Freidman. Combined, the agents tout over 40 years of commercial real estate experience and expertise.
The Midwest’s capital markets appeal is strong due to the region’s economic diversity, revitalization of neighborhoods, highly strategic reinvestments into its ecosystem, and prominent local startup communities.
“Building our Chicago team is a key piece to being a dominant player in the Midwest, which is extremely active in multiple sectors. This is a region to watch in the coming years, and I look forward to advancing Matthews’ presence in prominent markets,” David Harrington, President, said.
The new office space, located at 600 West Fulton Steet, is in one of Chicago’s most in-demand areas. The 4,288 square foot lease includes an onsite fitness center and yoga studio, bike room, and tenant lounge. This expansion was led by Managing Director Matt Fitzgerald, who is continuously working to find industry-leading agents and emerging opportunities to grow the Matthews™ brand.
“At Matthews™, we provide extensive opportunities to build upon our foundation through the support of our team, which in turn creates superior services and results for our clients,” Fitzgerald said. “Our growth in the Midwest and in the capital markets industry are necessary components as we advance as a company.”
