Matt Bear - Founder
Matt Bear is a real estate and finance business leader with a rich history of approximately 28 years of transactional, development and advisory experience, including 10 years of principal investing and retail real estate development. His experience covers many of the major markets of the United States with clients and key business relationships that span across the real estate, finance and private equity sectors.
In 2001, Matt was one of two founding partners of Venture Development Group, which specialized in the development of single tenant buildings, neighborhood and power center projects. The firm acquired, developed, and/or disposed of 20 properties totaling $55 million. He led a team of 18 professionals across three regional offices that encompassed development, finance, property management and legal management. Matt was directly responsible for the development and execution of the firm’s investment/development strategies, while leading all aspects of acquisitions, dispositions and leasing of commercial real estate assets.
In the wake of the 2008 global financial crisis, Venture Development Group discontinued operations and Matt resumed his career as one of the leading investment brokerage professionals with international commercial real estate services firms Avison Young and CBRE.
In 2018, Matt formed Bear Real Estate Advisors, LLC, to continue to cater to investors looking for personalized service and real world, battle-tested acquisition and disposition advice. The company is built on a foundation of genuine sincerity and partnership to foster lifelong friendships that promote personal and financial growth for all.
Matt is an avid reader, blogger and a formerly good golfer, as well as an aspiring guitar player. He and his wife of 22 years, Kelly, are the proud parents of two beautiful, smart teenage girls who offer constant challenges and perplexity to his life, as well as an immeasurable amount of joy.
