In 1998 Matt made the decision to make Wellington his permanent year-round home and enter the real estate business. Since then he hasn’t looked back. Consistently, year after year, Matt has been one of Wellington’s top-producing agents representing some the community’s finest estates, equestrian properties and buyers. Along with the traditional sales approach, Matt has a proven track record of success with luxury real estate auctions with some of Wellington’s most prestigious properties.He is always looking to raise the bar and to provide the best exposure and service to his customers. In his continued effort, this fall he made the move to a global real estate platform and joined Equestrian Sotheby’s International Realty based in Wellington.
Matt’s competitive nature doesn’t end in the office. He is an active dressage rider and competitor. Most recently, last November he imported his current mount, Petersborg’s Qasanova, a Danish stallion (Quarterback x Calypso II). He Trains with 6 time Olympian and USA’s Chef d'Equipe Robert Dover. Much to Matt’s surprise, within the first few months of their partnership, he & Qasaonva were 2014’s top FEI horse and rider combination for five year-olds in the United States and went on to be the sole U.S. representatives at the World Championships for young horses in Verden, Germany this past August. This horse and the entire past 12 months has far exceeded anything I’d imagined possible. Dreams came true, I’m grateful and blessed.
It’s obvious Matt’s drive, determination, and personable nature is evident both in and out of the office and has contributed to his success.
