About me:

I’ve always enjoyed helping people. I can’t say I fell into real estate; it was my upbringing. From an early age, I was raised with an education in houses due to my mother’s heavy involvement in real estate for over 30 years. Dinner conversations discussed new laws or the deals that were going on. I’d help with marketing efforts, and the after-dinner walks would frequently be spent guessing home values, naming architectural styles, and even species of trees they used to landscape. I loved it. That tradition continues to this day, only now she is assisting me... funny how things turn around ;)


Real estate wasn’t a direct path for me, however. Like many people, I’ve had many experiences that got me here. I graduated from University of Toledo with a BA in Marketing. I started out in the music industry with management positions in training and sales operations. After 15 years, the industry started to dry up. It was time for a change. I started working with a friend doing home remodeling which rekindled my love and involvement in houses. To this day, I enjoy employing this skillset for customers and investors alike.


Born and raised in North Olmsted, I later moved to Westlake, Rocky River, and finally settled in Avon Lake. Since then I have become very knowledgeable with some of the most nuanced areas in Cleveland’s west side.
What can I do for you? I believe long term success comes from happy clients and referrals. Nobody works harder than I do. Let me make what can seem like a nerve racking experience, a pleasurable one.

The moment you'd rather forget? We lost the first home we wanted because we weren't far enough along in the sale of our home to safely put in a bid. We were very disappointed at the time. Turns out he was right for being so cautious for us. We ended up in a much better home and are now very happy! Testimonial Matt handled the sale of our old home and purchase of our new home. He came up with several great ideas to not only market our home, but also to find our new one in neighborhood that didn't have much to offer at the time. He's knowledgeable, passionate, and seems to think outside the box. We are very happy! -D. Meade

He truly had my best interests at heart, and worked hard to find me what I was looking for. Moving here from another state is difficult enough, and he took a lot of pressure off of me, for which I'll always be grateful for. Thanks Matt!
