Posted In — News & Press | Press Releases

Kidder Mathews, the largest independent commercial real estate firm on the West Coast, has expanded its Reno office with the addition of Shawn Smith and Sean Retzloff, a well-known retail brokerage team. The team was formerly with CBRE’s Reno office and will continue to focus on selling and leasing retail properties in the greater Reno region.

“The addition of Shawn and Sean continues to solidify the Kidder Mathews’ presence as a leader in the Reno market,” says Eric Luhrs, regional president of brokerage for the firm’s Northern California and Nevada offices.

Smith joins Kidder Mathews as an executive vice president with over 20 years of experience in commercial real estate. He is a four-time NAIOP Northern Nevada Summit Award Retail Broker of the Year winner and a Certified Commercial Investment Manager (CCIM) member. He is also a Certified Retail Real Estate Professional (CRRP) — ICSC’s new, comprehensive certification for traditional and emerging fields within the marketplaces industry.

“My decision to join Kidder Mathews is based on a broker/client-centric culture that provides sophisticated levels of marketing support for clients and allows brokers to become owners with other top industry professionals,” says Smith.

Retzloff brings nine years of commercial real estate experience to Kidder Mathews as an associate vice president. He began his career as a leasing executive and asset manager and later became focused on retail leasing and sales when he joined CBRE in 2017.

“I’m excited to be a part of the Kidder Mathews culture and contribute to the growth of the Northern Nevada office,” says Retzloff.

Retzloff and Smith have completed approximately 20 million square feet of leasing and sales transactions over their careers. Their clients have included Kimco Realty, Inc., DRA Advisors, CFT Development, Starbucks, Chipotle, and Chase Bank.
