SAN FRAN-GVA Kidder Mathews and Holliday Fenoglio Fowler each recently added experience to their downtown office. GVA Kidder Mathews gains a new partner for its Downtown office in Dan Cronan and Holliday Fenoglio Fowler gains the longstanding investment sales team of Michael Leggett and Gerry Rohm.

Cronan has 24 years in the San Francisco office market. Most recently, he was the executive director and top producing broker at Pacific Union/GMAC Commercial’s office in San Francisco, representing many well-heeled downtown legal and financial firms. At GVA Kidder Mathews Cronan is charged with leading and growing the office’s brokerage group.

“The local brokerage community took some notice when GVA Kidder Mathews opened in San Francisco two years ago,” Cronan says. “[As it grew] to three offices and 50 brokers in the Bay Area, I became intrigued.”

Seattle-based Kidder Mathews, the largest independent real estate services firm in Washington State with five offices, entered the Northern Oregon market in 2003 and the Northern California market in 2006. The company is known for its platform, which offers executives, managers and top brokerage professionals the opportunity to own stock in the company and lets them keep 90% of the commission once they top $125,000 in revenue.

Kidder Mathews gained its third Bay Area location in September 2008 when it acquired Santa Clara, CA-based Wayne Mascia & Assoc. It is now one of the largest independently owned firms on the West Coast, with approximately 200 brokers in 9 offices. The firm was involved in approximately $2.2 billion in transactions and 900 appraisals in 2008, and its property management portfolio totals approximately 23 million square feet.

“We have…built a platform that is extremely attractive to brokers,” GVA/KM executive VP and managing partner Steve Bouret said in January, after it lured veteran Silicon Valley broker Bruce Horton out of a brief retirement to be a senior vice president in its Santa Clara office.

In March, Kidder Mathews gained life science real estate broker Mary Hines and her partner Jennifer Berrueta, who left Cresa Partners for GVA’s Redwood Shores office. Hines, an executive vice president with Cresa, is now a senior vice president with GVA Kidder.

The addition of Cronan will allow Kidder Mathews managing partners Steve Bouret and Gregg Domanico to focus on the Redwood Shores office. Heretofore, they had been splitting their time between the two offices.

The investment sales team of Michael Leggett and Gerry Rohm come to Holliday Fenoglio Fowler LP from Cornish & Carey Commercial’s Institutional Investment Services Group. The duo kick started C&C’s local office in late 2006.

Leggett and Gery Rohm have a combined 50 years of experience and $4.6 billion of transactional experience. In 2008, the duo brokered $400 million in deals. In the first quarter of 2009 they brokered the sale of a $60-million R&D portfolio.

Prior to C&C, Leggett was a member of CB Richard Ellis’s Institutional Group focusing solely on institutional disposition assignments on the West Coast. Rohm prior to C&C held executive-level positions in property and asset management, corporate services and investment sales at Cabot, Cabot & Forbes, KOLL Management Services, CB Richard Ellis and Kennedy Wilson.

HFF has 17 offices nationwide.
