About

Clay has over 25 years of experience in the commercial real estate industry, with well over a billion dollars in multifamily sales. He joined Kidder Mathews in 2013, where he’s consistently been recognized as a market leader and top producer.

Clay’s niche is the $2-million to $30-million apartment market in the Portland metro area. Clay uses a consultative approach to meet the tax and cash return requirements of buyers and sellers, often on IRS 1031 tax deferred exchanges.

He has been featured in local news (KGW, Oregonian, Business Journal) and at major industry events as an expert on Portland-area multifamily investment trends.

Clay serves on the forms committee for the Commercial Association of Brokers, is a past president of the Commercial Real Estate Brokers of Metropolitan Portland (COMP), and currently sits on the Cannon Beach Planning Commission.

He also has served on the board of Portland Youth Builders, helping to improve the lives of at-risk students, and as a committee member for other area housing nonprofits. Clay is a graduate of the University of Portland where he played NCAA Division I tennis, and lives with his wife and their daughter, in northeast Portland.
