Moving on up

Commercial real estate brokerage firm Kidder Mathews has taken the first step in an effort to double its Sacramento-area presence over the coming year.

The company recently added three veterans to the eight brokers it started with when it began Sacramento operations last October by acquiring the local office of Voit Real Estate Services.

The three newcomers - Bruce Wirt, Dennis Shorrock and Tom Bacon - all are top-producing office brokers and "good guys with a ton of experience," said Kevin Sheehan, Kidder's managing partner for the area.

Sheehan said he expects to add several more people in the next few months and have 15 to 20 people on board by the end of the year, along with a new office in midtown or downtown Sacramento to supplement the office in Roseville.

Sheehan said his team already is reaping benefits from the affiliation with Kidder, a fast-growing Seattle-based company known for its generous commissions structure.

Among the positives: Kidder's network of offices elsewhere in Northern California.

"We're seeing a lot of business coming our way (via referrals) from the Bay Area and Silicon Valley," he said.
