Mergers and Acquisitions

Strategies for valuations and implementation of mergers and acquisitions.

This program is available via invitation only. Please register for the Introduction to apply.

Mergers and acquisitions can be a great way to grow your brokerage, but they can also be time consuming, costly, and if done poorly, could bankrupt your business. In this program we'll cover identifying potential candidates, valuations, negotiations, earn-outs, claw-backs, liability risks and deal structures.

Once you've got the deal put together, the real work begins. We'll discuss how to evaluate the candidate, the right questions to ask, the processes and systems to integrate first, and how to blend two cultures. We'll also cover synergy and cost savings as well as the economies of scale that are possible with larger brokerage operations.

By the end of the program, you'll have the tools and resources necessary to successfully complete your first merger or acquisition.

With 230 agents and $1.7 billion in sales, Matt has built RE/MAX Northwest into the largest RE/MAX in Washington and in the top 150 of all brokerages in the United States. Matt made his first entrepreneurial move when he decided to pursue real estate in lieu of a traditional law career and has been building companies every since.

After two years as an independent broker, he opened his first RE/MAX office in Seattle in the summer of 2011. With a focus on systemization and agent development, RE/MAX Northwest per agent production has increased substantially every year and RE/MAX Northwest agents are the highest producing in the market.

When he saw inefficiencies in current real estate tech, he developed his own software to save time for the brokerage and its agents. He later founded a real estate startup to continue tech development from the agent and broker perspective.

Matt now consults with other brokerage owners to help them reach their own goals with an eye on helping every owner achieve full-leverage. In every aspect, Matt lives by our motto: Work Hard, Be Nice.
