 Matt Levine Talks about his Company - ECR

Where are you from originally?

What university did you go to? 

Baylor University – sic em Bears

What is the idea behind your company? 

Focused and professional commercial real estate services based on long-term relationships with our clients

Anyone with a need in commercial real estate, from a requirement to lease, sell, purchase, or have our firm manage their commercial real estate assets for them

Who is it for? 

Anyone with a commercial real estate requirement. 

What was the most challenging aspect of growing your business?  

In the very beginning when ECR was more of an idea than an operating company it was challenging to help bring on team members to grow the business.  However, opportunity presented itself and our core team that started with us in the beginning and have helped build ECR to where it is today are still with us helping lead us to new heights.

What is the next step for you and your business? 

Continue to build out our commercial real estate brokerage team to be able to serve more people in the Greater Austin area and expanding to other markets thereafter.

What advice do you have for other entrepreneurs? 

Keep your head up, stay positive and stay true to your course.

What is your motto in business? 

I like to encourage other entrepreneurs launching new businesses to laser-focus on sales in the beginning, as without sales you have nothing, but with sales you can build and build.

What resource have you found to be the most helpful and why?  

INC Magazine has been an amazing source of information, articles and stories for me throughout the years.  I read INC Magazine cover to cover each month and always end up sending myself a handful of notes and ideas from the content.
