Matthew Chase – Property Manager
Matt got his start in real estate by conducting due diligence on failed bank assets for a small LLC. After the purchase of a portfolio of roughly 40 delinquent loans, he was tasked with the creation of a property management function for the LLC as they took control of the assets through a deed in lieu. Matt’s efforts with the tenants’ delinquent status, contractors and legal counsel helped the properties return to a state where the portfolio was cash flowing. After succeeding in turning the properties around, Matt began working with an investment bank where he was responsible for collateral surveillance on the properties pooled into commercial mortgage backed securities. Matt’s commercial property analysis was shared with rating agencies and investors throughout the United States. His work with property managers and commercial owners gave him the experience to know how successful properties are managed. When a position opened with PacRim Properties, he knew it was a perfect fit and he has been striving to meet the needs of the owners, the properties and the tenants ever since starting with the brokerage. When he is not working, Matt loves to hike with his wife and dog Bishop, cook delicious food and meet more of the amazing people that call Alaska their home.
