Matt graduated from Seattle University School of Law and received a B.A. from the University of Washington. While at Seattle University, was a member of the Moot Court Board and received a Presidential Law Scholarship. While in Law School, he studied real estate, landlord tenant, contracts, and individual income tax. As a real estate agent, he is currently #1 in Washington on Re/Max's roster of highest-grossing agents.

Matt became interested in real estate as an undergraduate, became a homeowner after graduation, and then a landlord about a year later. After going through several transactions himself and working with a variety of real estate agents from the major brands, Matt knew there must be a better way to operate a brokerage. Most brokerages put an emphasis on competition between agents, with little or no support for agents regarding the complicated legal issues that are part of most transactions in this market.

Matt founded Re/Max On the Lake to address the short-comings of the current real estate brokerage model. The office is a high-energy, collaborative place for agents to work together for their clients, rather than a place where agents must fend for themselves and only come in to pay their broker fees. Re/Max On the Lake is a post-bubble brokerage focused on the reality of the new real estate industry and market rather than just trying to survive the downturn and waiting for the next bubble.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $575K in Highlands, Kirkland, WA.

Matt was attentive to our needs and our concerns. He really listened and understood the obstacles we faced in this competitive market. Matt was all about solutions, which is what made us more competitive as buyers. He worked within our comfort level and did not pressure us into going outside of our comfort level when it came to structuring an offer. I trust his knowledge and never found myself questioning his expertise. He paid great attention to detail when it came to our family profile and dynamics, which I believe in the end is the reason why the seller chose our offer when he presented us...a presentation/offer in which there were 16! A truly solid agent who knows what he is doing and great to work with. I would work with him again in any other future real estate transaction and will recommend him to any one I know looking to buy or sell a home.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in Greenwood, Seattle, WA.

Matt was amazing - the best - and made the experience of shortselling our home a remarkable one. There was no shame, no pain, just a professional, and highly organized atmosphere. We tell all of our friends about him - he's the best! A lawyer and a real estate agent...plus, he has a great team, office, etc. Top notch - no hesitation.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Snohomish, WA.

We needed to do a short sale on house as we were upside down and needed to relocate to another state, I was very nervous about the whole process as it is slightly different then a regular sale but Matt and his staff were absolutely amazing!! We have recommended him to a couple of our friends as well and everyone has been absolutely thrilled with his service  More Less
