Matthew DeBartolomeis is a First Vice President with CBRE's Advisory & Transaction Services in Denver, Colorado. Since joining in 2005, he has primarily represented landlords and developers of retail properties. He currently oversees retail assets, ranging from large-scale lifestyle centers to grocery anchored centers.
With more than 15 years of executive retail experience and insight gained through three generations of family owned, east coast retail businesses, Matthew offers his clients an innate perspective in navigating today's retail industry.
In 1983, Matthew conceptualized and founded Pacific Motion Corporation, a specialty clothing retailer in the Denver area. Having evolved his business into an independently owned multi-store operation, its sale in 1997 afforded Matthew the opportunity to pursue a commercial real estate career, specializing in retail properties.
Matthew’s professional acumen is evidenced in many notable accomplishments. He played a key role in the planning, design, tenant mix and marketing for The Belleview Promenade, an upscale, lifestyle center located in the Denver Technological Center. The center achieved 95% occupancy within one year of its opening in 1999, setting new heights for rental rates in the area. During his six years with Pacifica Commercial Business Group, a company whose portfolio valued over $500 million, he successfully completed more than 200 transactions.
