After college, Matthew held an internship at the anti-distracted driving tech firm ‘CellControl’. Matthew decided to join Saurage Rotenberg Commercial Real Estate, LLC in January of 2011 with the goal of learning from its Founders, Hank Saurage & Edward Rotenberg, along with the large number of experienced brokers already practicing at the firm.

Providing insightful Financial/Market Analysis, while maintaining excellent Customer Service are the Pillars on how Matthew builds successful client relationships.

In April 2016, Matthew achieved his Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) Designation, distinguishing him as one of the youngest designees in the state of Louisiana. Fewer than 10% of all commercial practitioners hold this designation nationwide. During his CCIM candidacy, he was awarded the 2013 Louisiana CCIM Scholarship. Matthew’s professional memberships include the Greater Baton Rouge Association of REALTORS® Commercial Investment Division (’16, ’17, & ’18 Board Member), the Louisiana CCIM Chapter, and the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC).
