Pennybacker Bridge over Lake AustinMatt is a third-generation Austinite with a passion for real estate. His grandfather owned an oil company before becoming a commercial developer and owner of warehouse leasing spaces throughout the state. His father was an Administrative Law Judge for the State of Texas, while his mother was a high school Assistant Principal for Round Rock ISD for over 20 years. Together, they taught him the importance of honesty, hard-work, and integrity in everything you do. While he grew up working on his family’s residential and commercial rental properties, Matt did not fall in love with construction until he built an outdoor classroom for Summitt Elementary as his Eagle Project with the Boy Scouts of America. That classroom is still in use by the school’s students and teachers today.
Matt received a full scholarship to Texas Tech University for Academics where he graduated with a triple-major in Finance, Economics, and Business. After a short stint in banking, he decided to follow his true passion and switch to a career in real estate where he has sold and closed hundreds of homes over the last decade for his clients. Matt has worked on everything from new construction builds, to 1940’s bungalows, 100+ acre ranches, to designing custom homes from the ground up all across Central Texas.

"My wife and I had a short time frame to work with and limited knowledge of Austin. Matt spent several days showing us properties in various parts of the city and provided lots of homes to review on line. He quickly picked up on our preferences while filling us in on Austin builders and construction practices. His background with home builders was extremely helpful. After deciding to build, his local knowledge quickly identified an area with the characteristics we desired and directed us to a quality builder. He advised us on lot selection and attended our initial sessions with the builder to work through floor plan revisions. Throughout the process, Matt's focus was on us getting the house we wanted. This is my third build and my seventh move. I highly recommend Matt without any reservation to be the best real estate agent I have worked with."Greg
"Matt recently helped us purchase our beautiful new home. As first time home buyers, we were a bit unsure of the process. Matt was with us every step of the way and really did a great job of guiding us from start to finish. The great thing about working with Matt is that he's got a construction background to go along with his general real estate expertise. So as our home was being built, we felt that we could always fall back on Matt's knowledge regarding a wide variety of topics. He was able to answer all of our questions as well as point out a number of items that we would have otherwise missed. After we signed the contract, Matt stood with us on our empty lot and explained the entire process that would cover the next several months, so there were no surprises. From that point all the way through the day we closed on the house, Matt was easy to reach and quick to help. Above all, Matt is personable and easy to talk to, which took some of the pressure off when asking what we assumed could be considered dumb questions, although he always assured us they were not. After closing, Matt reminded us that his job wasn't necessarily over, and that we could contact him at any time if we needed help with anything. I'm sure we'll take him up on that offer at some point. We're very happy with our new home, and I'm not sure when we'll even consider moving again, but when we do, Matt will be my first phone call."Roland
"Matt did an outstanding job helping us build our home. He was very knowledgeable about all aspects of the project and even made some design suggestions that we incorporated into our house. Most importantly, Matt was thoughtful and honest and his word was as good as gold. In short, Matt was a bright spot in a frequently frustrating process. We would highly recommend him."Marty
"Matt was very knowledgeable about the local area and was able to quickly find us a property within our budget that we love. He was professional and helpful during all parts of the home buying process, and we will be recommending him to friends and family who are looking to relocate."Kristen
