We are pleased to welcome Matthew Downing back to the Ida Terbet group. For 5 years he has pursued and succeeded in various other real estate ventures. Matt and his wife, Dr. Lori Downing, moved to Raleigh in 2001 but Matt considers himself a North Carolina native having lived in both Wilmington and Hendersonville as a child.

Matt was raised in his early years in Wilmington and recalls his time along the N.C. coast fondly. His family relocated to Hendersonville, North Carolina while he was in elementary school. His father, Reverend LaRue Downing, worked at Kanuga, an Episcopal conference center in western North Carolina. Matt loves to brag about his first job as the first (and only) boat manager at Kanuga. He still enjoys the family's annual trip to Hendersonville for Thanksgiving. When an opportunity arose for Matt's father, his family moved to Augusta, Georgia. Matt enjoyed working and attending the Master's tournament in his last few years of high school.

After high school, Matt found himself craving new adventures and enlisted in the United States Coast Guard. He was blessed to have been stationed in Honolulu, Hawaii onboard a 378 foot ship. The cutter's mission was to patrol United States fishing interests from Alaska to the western pacific. As a result of living onboard a ship for 2 years, Matt enjoyed extensive nautical and scuba diving adventures. From there, Matt transitioned within the USCG to aviation operations and excelled as a trained aviation electrician and flight mechanic. In addition to mechanical responsibilities, he flew on search and rescue operations and looks back on his time stationed in Miami proudly.

Matt is pleased to join Coldwell Banker HPW. He used Coldwell Banker HPW's connection with USAA and their relocation services to relocate to Raleigh in 2001. He and his wife were pleased and grateful to have worked to find their perfect home. Matt hopes to work with other service members, through USAA, as they relocate to the triangle area.

In his spare time, Matt loves to keep a small vegetable garden to can and pickle seasonal vegetables as they become available. He enjoys nothing more than the time he spends with his 7 year old daughter and is proud to call himself a "part-time stay at home Dad." If Matt is not in Raleigh, you can be sure to find him on the pontoon boat cruising Lake Tillery and enjoying the family's lake home.

The Downings love living in Raleigh and support many local organizations including CSA's, the ASPCA and Wake County Animal Shelter. They happily share their home with two rescue dogs, Edward and Tanner.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Northeast Raleigh, Raleigh, NC.
    Matt is an amazing realtor, and without him, we 100% would have never gotten the house we wanted! Not only did he find us the PERFECT home, and exactly what we were looking for, but he worked tirelessly to get our offer in, get it accepted, and get us to closing in a month! He handled EVERYTHING and was always available to answer questions, update documents, or address any issues or concerns. I can't believe how lucky we were to work with Matt, and I would suggest anyone who has the opportunity to work with him, does!  MoreLess

    Showed home in 2014 in North Raleigh, Raleigh, NC 27614.
    Matthew was very responsive, helpful, professional and made every effort to satisfy our home searching criteria.

    He worked with our schedules to and aligned the numerous appointments to accomodate our work schedules.

    I would highly recommend Matthew of the Ida Terbet team of Coldwell Bankners a highly skilled, agressive, creative sales team that make it happen!
