SAN FRANCISCO-Three more brokers have moved their shingle to GVA Kidder Mathews. Apartment broker Morgan Thomas and office brokers Barton Damner and Lent Howard have joined Kidder Mathews San Francisco office.Thomas is the first apartment investment specialist in the San Francisco office. He has nine years in the industry. He came over from Alain Pinel Realtors. Before that, he was with the local Pacific Union office.

Damner and Howard are clean tech/green tech office specialists, each with 10 years experience. They were previously with the San Francisco office of Colliers International.

Based in Seattle, GVA Kidder Mathews is an independent West Coast commercial real estate firm with nine offices. It entered the California market two years ago and now has offices in downtown San Francisco, Redwood Shores and most recently Santa Clara, by way of its merger with Wayne Mascia Associates. So far this year the company has lured 38 commercial real estate brokers to its three Bay Area offices, 11 of them to its Downtown San Francisco office.”We definitely have the momentum we had hoped for in the Bay Area,” says GVA San Francisco branch manager Dan Cronan, who came over from Pacific Union/GMAC Commercial in the spring and shortly thereafter was followed by three other Pacific Union brokers who joined Kidder Mathews’ Redwood Shores office. Around the same time, life science real estate broker Mary Hines and her partner Jennifer Berrueta left Cresa Partners for the same Kidder Mathews office.

The company is known for its relatively generous platform. It 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.

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