Dear Matre Forestry Newsletter Subscribers,

I am very pleased to announce that I, Mike Matre, am joining SVN | Saunders Ralston Dantzler as a Senior Advisor Associate Real Estate Broker. I will continue operating my forestry consulting business through Matre Forestry Consulting, Inc. and will begin running my real estate business through SVN | Saunders Ralston Dantzler. I will also continue publishing the Matre Forestry Newsletter.

I am also very pleased to announce Matre Forestry Associate Broker Seth Chester plans to join SVN | Saunders Ralston Dantzler as well.

Matre Forestry land agent Matt Roach will be joining Mossy Oak Properties Coastal Land and Real Estate, and Matre Forestry Land Agent Jeff Young will be joining Carter Legacy Lands. I think highly of Matt and Jeff, as well as the brokerages they are joining, and pray for success for all.

Marc Matre will continue with Matre Forestry Consulting, Inc. as CFO and Business Manager. Adam Burgess and Scott Adams will continue with Matre Forestry as contract foresters.

Just some short background on SVN | Saunders Ralston Dantzler and my decision to join them: A few years ago SVN Senior Advisor Bryant Peace co-listed a couple of tracts with me, and I began to provide forestry services for a few of Bryant's clients. I also had the pleasure of meeting SVN | Saunders Ralston Dantzler Founder & Managing Director Dean Saunders at the RLI National Land Conference. As Dean and Bryant have grown their Georgia team, several land agents that I know and respect have joined SVN. Notably, my friend and SVN Senior Advisor Todd Davis, also of Albany, has commented to me several times over the past couple of years how pleased he is to be with SVN.

I have always admired Dean's success and the quality company and culture he has built at SVN, and through several successful real estate and forestry projects with Bryant, it became apparent that joining SVN | Saunders Ralston Dantzler would be a great move for myself and my clients. I recently sat down with Dean, SVN's CFO Tyler Davis, and Bryant at Southwind Plantation to discuss the mutual benefits of me joining SVN, and that meeting solidified my decision to become a Senior Advisor with SVN | Saunders Ralston Dantzler.

The back office support provided out of the SVN Headquarters in Lakeland Florida and the Georgia office in Thomasville is second to none, which will allow me to focus on getting deals done for my clients. Joining SVN also opens up opportunities for me to branch out into more commercial real estate in addition to land real estate, which is a benefit for much of my client base. I am looking forward to becoming part of SVN | Saunders Ralston Dantzler as they continue to grow in Georgia & Alabama, and continuing forestry operations through Matre Forestry Consulting, Inc.

I am forever grateful to my clients for the over 100 land sales representing over $50,000,000 in gross sales volume I have brokered through Matre Forestry Consulting, Inc. Between my growth in both real estate and forestry, the demands on my small company Matre Forestry Consulting, Inc. and myself have reached the point I needed to invest in more employees for Matre Forestry real estate back office support, or move my real estate business to an existing firm that could provide the support I, my clients, and my agents need. SVN | Saunders Ralston Dantzler fills that need greatly. The expertise and investments in Advisor support, Advisor training, marketing, internet technology, real estate brokerage technology and efficiency, and commercial & land market data analytics SVN brings to the table is second to none. The expertise, professionalism, and culture at SVN will be a great benefit to my clients and my professional growth.
