About Matthew

The Blackshaw Messel Group at Compass is a full-service real estate team with exceptional expertise and an unwavering client-first attitude. Led by Nicholas Blackshaw and Matthew Messel, the dynamic group is a go-to resource in the Northwest Suburbs and the entire Chicagoland area helping buyers and sellers, relocators, flippers, investors and developers reach their unique real estate goals.

Drawn together by their shared passion for extraordinary client service, Nicholas and Matthew operate with the highest level of integrity and transparency. The duo understands that real estate success is created by an ideal combination of service and knowledge, so they deftly leverage Compass' industry-leading technology and programs to ensure that each client's objectives are met swiftly and successfully. They're collaborative, responsive and committed to keeping their promises, and as dedicated members of their communities, Nicholas and Matthew give back with every transaction.

While Nicholas and Matthew have a lot in common — they each earned Rookie of the Year accolades at Coldwell Banker while launching their real estate careers, and they're both parents to young children — it's their complementary skill sets and approaches that lets clients know they're benefiting from the joined forces of two real estate powerhouses. Nicholas is a gifted analyst and fierce negotiator whose deep understanding of new construction and development was formed during his nine years as a construction company sales associate and project manager. Matthew's elite client service and management skills were honed as he rose through the executive ranks at Enterprise Rent-a-Car. Team member Courtney Smith rounds out their multi-talented roster, making The Blackshaw Messel Group a natural choice for your Chicago area real estate needs.
