Matt S. Scales
Matt Scales complements a very talented @properties Commercial team with his unique background and skillsets. Matt began his career working with the Plote Companies in their real estate development arm. While at Plote, he focused the majority of his efforts as a developer’s representative/project manager on commercial projects, including such notables as the Super Target anchored 32 acre Hillside Town Center development in Hillside, Illinois. Matt’s efforts expensed toward successful project completions included: planning, acquisitions, entitlements and overall project management.
Subsequent to that, Matt joined a start-up real estate development firm, Altium Development Group. There, he pursued real estate development opportunities within the gaming and entertainment environment, spending considerable efforts raising capital for projects. Catching the “start-up bug”, Matt went on to work with an upstart niche finance company squarely focused on providing funding to operators in the gambling marketplace.
Matt maintains his involvement in the real estate business through commercial brokerage, where he’s able to utilize his experience with the rest of the @properties Commercial team to complement a well-rounded professional real estate services company. He primarily focuses his efforts on working with owners and investors, allowing his diverse set of experiences to benefit his clients.
When he’s not working, Matt enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters and proudly carries a very high handicap for each occasional round of golf he gets in during the short summer months in Chicagoland.
Matt holds a Bachelors Degree in Urban and Regional Planning from the University of Illinois, an Illinois Real Estate Broker License and certification in project management.
