Kidder Mathews continues its rapid expansion in Southern California, adding 15 brokers in the first quarter of 2022. The announcement follows last month’s hiring of Jim Kruse as the Regional President of Brokerage for Greater LA. 

The recent new additions are Darin Beebower, Mark Ventre, Arian Rejaei, Dakoda Iverson, Jay Martinez, Connor MacLeod, Michael Criswell, Darin Spillman, Kelly Betpolice, Kevin Hekmat and Alex Cordova in Century City, along with Scott Rosenberg and Michael Jones in El Segundo and Casey Lins and Barak Cassilly in Downtown LA. 

“After just five years in Los Angeles and over 50 years in business, Kidder Mathews has established itself as a force in the commercial real estate industry on the West Coast” said Kruse in a news release, adding, “Our strategic growth plan includes continuing the expansion of our SoCal local experts to address the unique needs of our clients.”
