Matt joined The Group in 2008 as a Broker Associate/Partner and moved into a Managing Broker role in 2015.

For the past 15 years I have been involved in various facets of real estate.  I worked my way up from a Field Customer Service Representative with Melody Homes to the Director of Marketing for the Colorado division of D.R. Horton Homes.  From there I was a Brand Manager with the renowned real estate branding and marketing firm Milesbrand.  I worked with several mid to large scale home builder and development clients across the United States to launch and maintain sales & marketing efforts.

I developed a successful real estate business within The Group during my first seven years with the company.  During that time I assisted over 155 buyers and sellers with over $42 million in real estate transactions.  I was awarded the Rookie of the Year from the Loveland-Berthoud Association of Realtors in 2009.  I’ve been through the Leadership Northern Colorado and Leadership Loveland programs and have served on various boards & committees throughout the community.  I’m also a Navy veteran having served four years on an aircraft carrier stationed in Virginia.

I’m married and have three growing children who keep me active and enjoying all of the great amenities of Northern Colorado.
