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.

Matthew also supports The New York Foundling, The Children's Starlight Foundation, the ASPCA, and regularly donates his time to God's Love, We Deliver. Matthew recently gut-renovated a 100-year-old Tudor in Connecticut where he now resides with his wife and their puppy, Walter.
"We loved our experience working with Matthew at Douglas Elliman. 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.

Imagine a completely renovated 2020 home where your family and loved ones gather to relax and rejuvenate in quite possibly one of the most beautifully private and pleasure filling places. Imagine a resort setting with every amenity meeting the needs of your greatest desires from personal tennis courts, home gym and river waterfront with waterfalls to canoe, paddle or swim. Indulge in the property's pool and spa with steam room as one of the many indulgences. Perennial walking trails throughout the ample acreage lead to green and serene spaces for contemplation, yoga or meditation. Imagine the experience and ease of multi generational luxury with more than 11,000 square feet of high design while you listen to the young ones laugh and play on the lawn or while the teens enjoy movie night in the river house and the adults take in the glories of mother nature from the many decks and balconies overlooking the roaring river water views. Imagine the ease of modern living in the main house with an exquisite owner's suite and separate guest quarters while when required there are quiet offices for the work that must be done all situated with great thoughtfulness in this stunning architectural delight. Main house, guest house, river house and green house combine to offer a sleek sanctuary. This riverfront masterpiece offers the opportunity to experience the simplicity of bliss in the same setting where the Gershwins and The Beatles were inspired! Run away to River Run!
