John Matlick:  "It isn't difficult to list a property and show it to a bunch of tire kickers.  It takes experience, market savvy and especially integrity to close a transaction with the least possible stress in the least amount of time at the highest possible price to and for the Owner."

John's foundation for real estate brokerage began as a developer initially with the funding and construction of the 125 room Best Western Executive Inn in Seattle.  Over the next 30 years he co-ventured multiple lodging and restaurant transactions in Seattle, Chicago, Washington DC (Springfield), St. Paul, Phoenix and Tempe.  Concurrent with his entrepreneurial ventures, John served in senior management positions with Best Western, Quality Inn (Choice Hotels) and Days Inns (Wyndham).  He purchased a minority interest in Nendels, a local northwest lodging chain.  As its CEO he repositioned it as a franchise company and successfully completed an Initial Public Offering.  


This combination of lodging development and corporate management has allowed him to develop skills unique to lodging brokerage. What this means to his clients is he understands how to establish the market value of a lodging property, has learned how to create strong marketing plans and he has the savvy to  manage the transaction through the requisite third parties to a successful closing.
