As Matt puts it, “All houses have a story, and distressed properties are at the end of theirs.” When you meet Matt, you find yourself engaged in a conversation with a bright, articulate man whose friendly demeanor and gift of gab makes for an easy conversation.
Born and raised in St. Louis Missouri, he majored in Applied Mathematics at Lindenwood University and University of Missouri Saint Louis. Choosing to take a different path, Matt joined the police academy and served as a law enforcement officer in Overland for 12 plus years. But as Matt’s family was growing, working twelve-hour days and many weekends had become a challenge.
Matt eventually transitioned into a position in fraud investigation, but his desire to work in a field that gave him more autonomy left him feeling empty about his career. But a lifelong interest in real estate led him to his next journey.
Grant Hickman and Matt have been friends since childhood. With Matt’s love of rehabbing properties and Grant’s investment division, it was an easy decision for Matt to become part of GHREA Invest. In this division of GHREA, Matt’s role as a Real Estate Invest Advisor is designed to find the right properties for rehab, rental or wholesale purposes. His skills and expertise make him the perfect coach to share his knowledge and insight.
Although similar to traditional real estate, investment real estate requires a different artistry and service. The ability to identify and acquire distressed properties is just the tip of the iceberg. Matt will collaborate with you on the three GHREA Invest options (Now, Shop, List) for your property while helping you navigate from start to finish. Want coaching?? Are you thinking of investing in your future? Matt can also show you how investment properties will help you achieve your goals.
Matt wants to revitalize properties and communities. As he put it, “To see a property no one wants and transform it into a HOME that every person would be happy to own, is truly gratifying.”
An excellent addition to the GHREA family, Matt’s knowledge and passion are ideal for the GHREA INVEST division.
