Matt will be assisting buyer’s in all aspects of transactions along with digging deeper into real estate law. Read below for a bit more on Matt. Cheers!Screen Shot 2015-07-01 at 10.37.24 AM

Matt’s years of experience as an attorney provide him with valuable insight and experience in negotiating the best possible outcome for his clients, including recognizing and understanding the niceties of legal and contractual aspects in real estate transactions. Matt first cultivated an interest in real estate while working as a summer intern at the Utah Association of Realtors, where he assisted in-house counsel with legal research on various real estate issues. At law school, Matt received the Outstanding Property Law Student Award for his graduating class, which was given to the student who received the highest grades in real estate and property law courses. After practicing law for two years in New York City and Long Island, Matt followed the girl of his dreams to Asheville in summer 2014 after she accepted a job offer as a clinical psychologist at a private outpatient practice. Within real estate, Matt has a particular focus working with buyers, and he prides himself on thoroughly understanding the process from start to finish, which he in turn imparts to his clients, giving them peace of mind that the transition into their new home will be a comfortable one. Matt is ecstatic about joining Modern Asheville and continuing to tirelessly work finding the best possible homes for his buyer clients.

In addition to being an avid movie buff, Matt enjoys reading, cooking, and playing tennis and the piano in his spare time. Matt also spent two years living in Japan in his early 20’s, and he still speaks the language conversationally.
