Our story

Commission PDX was founded in 2018, upon decades of real estate and mortgage lending experience from partners Bob Christensen and Tony Matic.  For over 15 years, both Bob and Tony were managing independent businesses in their respective industries. However, as time passed, they found themselves working together in greater capacities to generate success for one another throughout a multitude of deals and business negotiations. With Bob’s excellent communication skills and Tony’s rigorous attention-to-detail, the two found that their individual skillsets combined became a powerful force. Naturally, they couldn’t help but entertain the idea of working together in a new business venture.

One fateful day while out on their travels, Bob and Tony had the fortunate experience of getting caught in a layover. With nothing else to do, they began talk turkey. After hours of brainstorming in the dimly lit Airport Bar, Tony and Bob finally pinpointed their niche. Now more than ever, real-estate investors are seeking a higher standard of preparation, service, and management of properties. However, providing this standard of excellence would require extreme efficiency and non-stop optimization.  

With this challenging vision in mind, the duo set out to establish a new model for vertically integrated real-estate development. From unexpected beginnings, Commission PDX was born. In the short-time that has passed since, we have grown our workforce and finished the development of Acorn®, a digital Real Estate engine designed to navigate us through every step of the property acquisition and improvement process.  Backed by both excellence in service, and the strength of technology– Commission PDX is enabling the success of those we serve every day.

Our Mission

“We are a collaborative team that focuses on using our professional skills to grow this business while keeping integrity at the forefront. All of us have a fiduciary responsibility to our investors to make safe, sound, and secure decisions that will improve our portfolio at a pace that stays true to our core values. Our mission is to purchase commercial real estate, improve the living spaces within these entities, and build quality relationships with the people that occupy them. We call this the CPDX way. We will leave properties better than we found them.”

Joshua Buchanan

Technical Operations

“When I began work with CPDX, their philosophy to leave properties better than they found them made total sense to me. Unlike so many other property entities, CPDX approaches their work with the perfect combination of business sense and altruism.”

In 2010, Josh earned his Eagle Scout award after 5 years of hard-work and weekly scout-meetings. As a Boy Scout, one of the first things taught is to “leave no trace” by being mindful of trash on hikes and camping excursions. However his troop had their own spin on this– instead aiming to “leave it better than you found it.”  Subsequently, when he began work with CPDX, their philosophy to leave properties better than they found them made total sense. 

He remarks “Unlike so many other property entities, CPDX approaches their work with the right combination of business sense and altruism, aiming to improve properties and provide the utmost caliber of service to tenants.”

Within our organization, Josh brings 10 years of marketing and IT experience to the table, with a specialization in process optimization and growth management. He’s been fortunate to help direct and guide high-level technical strategies and consultation for marketing agencies, in-house development teams, and everything in-between. Currently he is the acting Director of Technical Operations for CPDX. 

“I’m extremely grateful to work for a company that places their focus on values that matter, backed by business decisions that promote steady growth and success.”
