Matt Jones


Walker & Dunlop, Inc. announced today that it has expanded its footprint into Grand Rapids, Michigan with the addition of Matt Jones, Managing Director. Mr. Jones will join Todd Stofflet, Jason Stevens, and the existing Walker & Dunlop Investment Sales (WDIS) team based out of  Chicago, expanding its multifamily property sales presence throughout the Midwest with an emphasis on Michigan.

WDIS Executive Vice President, Kris Mikkelsen, commented, “We are thrilled to welcome Matt to the WDIS platform, which has experienced phenomenal growth and now has a presence in seventeen of the twenty most actively traded markets in the U.S. Geographic expansion will play an important role in the continued growth of our multifamily property sales volumes to achieve $25 billion by 2025, and Matt’s addition in Grand Rapids, in combination with the existing W&D team members across the Midwest, further solidifies our competitive presence throughout the region.”

Prior to joining Walker & Dunlop, Mr. Jones was a Senior Vice President of Multifamily Investments at Colliers International, where he was focused on the disposition of multifamily property throughout the Midwest region. Previously, he was the principal and founder of a boutique multifamily brokerage firm, Beacon Realty Group, LLC, that was acquired by Colliers in 2018. Mr. Jones has spent his entire career focused on multifamily investment properties and has established an extensive list of institutional, private, and international clients.
