Stuart currently works for Metzler Real Estate as an Asset Manager. He’s in the Asset Services group at Metzler and is an advisor to his client, Union Investment Real Estate (UIRE), based in Hamburg, Germany. Their US real estate portfolio consists of ~$1.7 billion in assets. Metzler Real Estate is the exclusive advisor to UIRE in the United States. Stuart has been with Metzler Real Estate for just over two years starting as an analyst after completing his MSRE from UW and working up to Associate Asset Manager and now Asset Manager.
Before the UW MSRE program, he worked at Countrywide Commercial and Washington Mutual as a commercial loan officer financing small balance commercial real estate loans. But real estate is his passion. Stuart enjoyed the debt side of the business but knew he wanted to make his career on the equity side. Completing the MSRE degree from the Runstad Center was a great stepping stone for that change in his career.
For Stuart, living in Seattle, where the real estate market is one of the fastest-growing, was a big part of his decision to go to Runstad. He also recognized Runstad’s interdisciplinary approach to learning and an amazing Advisory Board as valuable assets of the program.
