In 1997 Matt began investing in single family, multifamily, small commercial properties, and land. Earning his Real Estate License in 1999, Matt worked successfully as a real estate agent for three years when he decided it was time for more.

This designation is awarded to only those real estate professionals who have completed a series of demanding courses and exams as well as produced a significant portfolio of completed commercial real estate transactions.

Today, Matt continues to run a successful real estate brokerage while he remains committed to his and his clients’ real estate investments throughout the Alexandria/Pineville area, and most recently expanding his interests to the Gulf Coast.
