Walker & Dunlop Expands Property Sales Team into Northern California with New Hires

Walker & Dunlop, Inc. announced today that it has hired Managing Director Nate Oleson and Senior Directors Marc Andenmatten and Mike Colhoun to its property sales team in Northern California, one of the most desirable housing markets in the country. 

“Nate, Marc, and Mike will prove invaluable, given their incredible track record with institutional and middle market clients across the country,” said Executive Vice President of Walker & Dunlop Investment Sales, Kris Mikkelsen. “The addition of these accomplished brokers represents our first foray into the prolific Northern California property sales space. As we remain focused on growing our annual multifamily property sales volume to over $25 billion by 2025, adding best-in-class talent in new markets will add an incredible foothold to our already strong platform.” 

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to join Walker & Dunlop’s growing property sales platform,” commented Mr. Oleson. “The firm has a well-recognized brand, is ranked #1 multifamily capital provider in the country, and has a keen focus on technology – all of which will greatly benefit the business and clients.”

Prior to joining Walker & Dunlop, Oleson, Andenmatten, and Colhoun each held roles at Newmark Knight Frank, ARA and Arroyo & Coates, where they each specialized in multifamily capital markets. They have focused on multifamily investment sales for institutional and private clients within the Bay Area, Sacramento, and broader Northern California region. With a combined 44 years of experience in the commercial real estate industry, Messrs. Oleson, Andenmatten, and Colhoun have experience with a variety of multifamily products, ranging from conventional and garden-style to value-add, rent-controlled, and affordable assets, as well as residential land.
