Matthews Opens San Diego Office, Plans to Add 50 Brokers 

Matthews Real Estate Investment Services has opened a San Diego office. It will be led by industry veterans Matt LoPiccolo and Michael Federico, who bring more than 20 years of combined commercial real estate experience to the brokerage.  

Along with LoPiccolo and Federico, the San Diego office anticipates growing by 50 agents in the next 36 months. The San Diego opening means a physical presence in an already established and high-producing real estate market. 

“San Diego has been a hot spot for our agents over the past few years and continues to grow in opportunity,” said managing director David Harrington. “We have made a commitment to build a massive presence in the city and this move solidifies the execution of that vision and will be instrumental in the recruitment of top talent as we grow the business and our client services.”
