He has completed his CCIM (Certified Commercial Investment Member) designation, which is comparable to having a doctorate in advanced real estate theory. He is also qualified as an expert witness in the State of California.
On June 1, 2007, Matthew sold an asset management company called Urban Eco Housing that he built from the ground-up. His portfolio consisted of just fewer than 1000 units where he created an infrastructure in management, maintenance, loss mitigation, acquisition, disposition, legal accounting and an environmental division. He established an eco-friendly laundry company because it vertically integrated into the business model! He sold the business in order to concentrate 100% of his efforts in the growing REO market we are currently enjoying.
