Matt made his first entrepreneurial move when he decided to pursue real estate in lieu of a traditional law career. After several years as an independent broker, he opened his first RE/MAX office at Green Lake in Seattle in the summer of 2011, adding offices in Bellevue and Issaquah over the next three years. When he saw inefficiencies in current real estate tech, he developed his own software to save time for the brokerage and its agents. He later co-founded a real estate startup to continue tech development from the agent and broker perspective.
As a licensed attorney, Matt was able to help his agents through the most difficult contract negotiations while consistently improving the brokerage. Now with 700 agents and support staff and $3.7 billion in sales, RE/MAX Northwest is the fastest growing RE/MAX brokerage in the U.S and the 4th largest in the United States.
Matt and his team are constantly trying to improve and experimenting in new ways to market and serve clients. With an emphasis on collaboration and growth, RE/MAX Northwest uses new technology to help agents work better and smarter. In every aspect of the business, Matt lives by our motto: Work Hard, Be Nice.
