Investment Real Estate LLC (IRE), a property-management and consulting firm serving the self-storage industry, has hired Matt Rosendale as a brokerage associate. He’ll be responsible for assisting the brokerage team with sales, property valuations and sales-comparables tracking. Rosendale will be based in the York, Pa., home office, supporting staff in the mid-Atlantic and Northeast states.
“The IRE brokerage team is thrilled to have somebody with Matt’s sales experience and can-do attitude join the team,” said Kevin Bledsoe, vice president of brokerage and acquisitions. “We know our clients will enjoy working with Matt, and we look forward to introducing him to the self-storage owners we serve.”
Rosendale earned a bachelor’s degree from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania. His background includes education and industrial gas sales. After several years as a high-school social studies teacher, he pursued a career in sales. He was employed for three years at Praxair Inc., where he took on various leadership roles and helped his customers increase productivity, decrease costs and increase wallet-share. This included a Pennsylvania-based metal fabricator that switched products and improved productivity while cutting costs by 50 percent, the release stated.
“I am thrilled to be a part of Investment Real Estate! It’s evident they have created a thriving, positive and rewarding culture, and I look forward to working with the team to help achieve the goals and dreams of our clients,” Rosendale said.
Since its inception in 1998, IRE has provided brokerage, construction, development and management services to self-storage owners and investors. It’s a division under the Investment Real Estate Group Cos., along with Investment Real Estate Management and Investment Real Estate Construction LLC.
