About Matthew
Originally from the suburbs of Detroit, MI, Matthew graduated from Michigan State University worked for 19 years the private golf club management business, including a stint as the Director of Golf Courses at the venerable Winged Foot Golf Club - a six-time U.S. Open venue perennially ranked among the Top 10 in the nation. While managing some of the elite private golf clubs in the country, Matthew became adept in understanding and exceeding clientele expectations under high pressure situations. His character traits that garnered success in the golf business, such as commitment to working long hours, excellent communication skills, extensive industry knowledge, and ability to think outside-the-box, have translated well in the real estate field. Overall, Matthew feels that his integrity, contagious passion, and ability to seek and understand what each customer truly desires are the qualities he finds most valuable in real estate.

Prior to joining Compass, Matthew had one of the top producing real estate teams within Douglas Elliman. A member of the exclusive COMPASS Sports and Entertainment Division, he has worked with a wide array of clients; from first time home buyers and property investors to Fortune 500 executives and artists in the fashion, music, and entertainment industries. His transaction experience covers not only luxury real estate but sophisticated income property purchases, and rentals as well. Known for his sense of humor and optimism, Matthew strives to maintain an ongoing partnership with clients; making sure their needs are continually met long after transactions conclude. Keeping them informed of the changing market in their areas of interest or the neighborhoods they live in is one of the keys to his success in maintaining valued, long-term relationships as well as continued referrals from appreciative clients.

In his free time, one will likely find Matthew at the gym, golfing, playing guitar, attending sporting events and concerts, or endurance training. He has run 25 marathons, including ten Boston and one London marathon as part of the "Marathon Strides Against MS Team" for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and the Berlin Marathon in support of the American Cancer Society. He has also completed numerous Ironman and Ironman 70.3 events as well. Matthew also supports The New York Foundling, The Children's Starlight Foundation, the ASPCA, and God's Love, We Deliver. Matthew recently gut-renovated a 150-year-old farmhouse in Westport, CT where he now resides with his wife, daugher, and their dog, Walter.


"We loved our experience working with Matthew. We needed to sell our apartment quickly and interviewed handfuls of brokers who didn't seem like that could get the price we wanted with such a quick turnaround. In came Matthew and he guaranteed that he could - and did. Matthew was available practically 24/7 and helped us smoothly navigate the sale, including dealing with a challenging coop management company and a buyer who did not have a broker. Whenever there was a complication, he represented us, made sure we were heard, and relayed information clearly to the lawyers and buyer. We would highly recommend Matthew for his professionalism, commitment to customers, and true strength as a salesperson." Ilan and Jessie K.
