Matt was born and raised in Brantford and he really loves this city. Every neighbourhood is unique, and there's so much history and great people to be proud of. Growing up as the "go-to computer guy" for family and friends pushed me into the field of Internet Technology at Fanshawe College in London. Aside from the "Geek Life", he really enjoys meeting people and hearing their "story", so he makes sure he takes any opportunity to get out to community events and celebrations. You might even find him Dj'ing some of them, which is a big passion of his!!
Q&A With Matt:
WHY DID YOU BECOME A REALTOR®?
I was needing more "outside the cubicle" face-to-face interaction in my professional life and was encouraged by Ryan to jump head first into the fast-paced and always changing Real Estate industry. I haven't looked back since... Thanks Ry!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PART OF SELLING REAL ESTATE?
The look on clients faces when they've realized they've found their home; especially if it's their very first purchase.
WHERE DO YOU LIKE TO TRAVEL?
Anywhere warm, with palm trees, where my feet can touch sand.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE BOOKS, MOVIES, SHOWS, BANDS?
I'm a geek at heart so most of what I read is informational, or to learn. I'm really into music so most of my free time is spent discovering new artists and genres and usually incorporate my finds into my DJ sets.
When the big screen lights up, as long as the movie or show will make me laugh, or has a lot of action in it, I'll get the popcorn ready... just don't ask me to see a horror flick: Nightmares are not my thing. If it’s game time I'm a huge fan of hockey (Go Sharks!), Basketball (Go Raps!), Baseball (Go Jays!), and Football (Go Bengals!) and will always have time to talk puck or fantasy sports with anyone.
WHAT'S ONE THING MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU?
I don't like Chocolate, but that's usually okay with my friends who get my extras!

“The website was fantastic. They did a great job showing our home on it. :)”
“Ryan and his team know their stuff! Market understanding, navigating sensitive negotiation points, and closing the deal were all handled professionally and I was kept well informed every step of the way.”
“Amazing!! Just Amazing!! I needed to quickly sell my unoccupied property so I called Ryan. Within 1 day I received an offer! When we realized it wasn’t going to work out he hosted an awesome open house and he sold it with a solid offer before the open house was finished. Ryan kept me informed every step of the way, he was always available to talk no matter what he was doing, and talk about knowledgeable!! Ryan is professional yet personable, he will definitely go above and beyond for his clients! I would and will highly recommend Ryan to everyone who is both buying and selling. Thank you Ryan.”
“We have absolutely loved working with Ryan. He is very conscientious. He has an amazing team. I have and will continue to recommend “The Crew" to any and everyone l know. It really does matter who you work with!”
