They will specialized in tenant rep, land acquisition, and investment sales.

Rune Harkestad is 15 year real estate veteran. He  began working as a commercial retail specialist with JSH Properties in 1998. Later he worked with First Western Properties, where his focus was locating, analyzing and acquiring development sites in Washington State for companies like Walgreens drugstores, KeyBank, and SONIC restaurants.

Brian Engelking has over 14 years experience in retail leasing and tenant representation. Prior to brokering real estate, Brian successfully owned and operated a chain of 15 video rental stores from 1987-1995.

All told, the Kidder Mathews retail team now totals over 20 experienced agents in Washington alone. Welcome gentlemen.
