Meet Matt Lehnert, Senior Associate, Sales and Leasing at Concorde Management & Development, LLC (

Tell us a little about your business. – Concorde Management & Development, LLC offers comprehensive real estate services for both commercial and residential clients. I am associated with the brokerage are which offers representation for asset acquisition and dispositions along with Landlord and Tenant representation for commercial leasing. Concorde also offers property management and full construction services.

How did you get started in the business? – I’ve been in sales most of my professional career and after a long tenure as a Business Manager for DuTeau Subaru, I was ready to make a change. I have known my managing broker, Aaron Fenton, for quite some time and when an opportunity became available at Concorde, we both felt like it could be a good fit.

What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced professionally? – I think my biggest challenge, especially early on, was learning the terminology associated with commercial properties. I’m sure my colleagues became annoyed with me, at some point, with the amount of questions I had.

What has been your most important achievement professionally? – I am very proud of what I believe to be, very good working relationships with cooperating agents at the different brokerages across Lincoln and Omaha. We may not have the same logo on our business cards, but I do consider them co-workers.

Tell us a little about your family. – I have been married to my wife, Amy, for 18 years. We have two daughters; Kendal age 15 and Camryn age 12. We also have a small zoo at home with two dogs, two cats and a pet hedgehog.

What is your favorite thing to do on a day off? – With my time off I enjoy golf, spending time with friends and family and seeing the live music acts that come through Lincoln.

What is the most unique or interesting thing about you that most people probably don’t know? – While attending UNL, I was a member of the UNL Yell Squad from 1999-2004.

If you could choose only one descriptive word to be remembered as, what would it be? – Genuine…for better or for worse.

If you could have a super power, what would it be? – Time travel. I think being able to re-enjoy great times from the past and to right any wrongs that are need righting. Hindsight is most definitely 20/20.

If you could choose any other profession to be successful in, what would it be? – My dream occupation would certainly be Touring Musician, but I know that would be incredibly tough with a family at home.

What is your favorite movie? – It’s very hard to choose just one, and even harder to choose one appropriate for a business magazine profile, but I will say Tombstone. However, definitely know as that The Dude Abides.

What is your favorite local Lincoln restaurant? – Lazlo’s is always a family favorite and I am also a big fan of Copal and Bison Witches.

If you could have dinner with one famous person from the past or present, who would it be? – Jeff Bridges.
