Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) May 25, 2008
Charlotte architect and real estate broker, Matthew Spiva, has launched Steelwood, a one of kind real estate brokerage and consulting firm that will assist its clients in the planning, marketing, development, sales and management of their real estate assets.
Says Spiva of his new venture, "Our goal at Steelwood is to help families and non-profits maximize the value of their properties to secure their financial futures."
Spiva brings to Steelwood a 14-year background as a Principal of a regional architecture firm. There, Matt learned real estate development as the lead Architect while working with real estate developers, non-profit organizations and private land owners throughout the Southeast. He has also worked with a midwestern real estate development company where he coordinated infrastructure construction within their residential communities. The combination of his experience as a real estate broker, architect and land planner allows him to see the big picture for his clients.
"My experience has taught me how the real estate business works. From site analysis, land acquisitions and rezonings to building design and construction, project management and financial analysis, I have been exposed to all aspects of my clients' real estate needs. Implementing this knowledge enables us to offer turn key solutions for our clients," says Spiva.
Steelwood's team of Sonia Vizcaino and Sarah Lak compliments Matt's experience. Sonia is the Vice President of Finance and a Certified Public Accountant. Prior to joining Steelwood, she worked as the Director of Finance and Administration for the City of Monroe. There, she was responsible for the oversight and management of the City's Customer Service and Administrative Services division where she managed a $100 million annual budget and an $83 million investment portfolio.
Sarah Lak is an associate that brings her experience as a Property Assistant with Spectrum Properties to Steelwood. Sarah handles the development research and analysis including demographic studies, marketing, and property management.
With the Steelwood team in place, they are ready to fulfill their mission of helping their clients enhance their real estate to reach their financial goals.
