In 2017 I left a career spanning more than 14 years in Default Mortgage Servicing where more than 12 years of that was focused on GSE and other Private Investor property disposition (Real Estate Owned/Deed in Lieu/Short Payoffs). I've literally done it all from savings people's homes in Loss Mitigation to running teams of REO Asset Managers for multiple companies to improve negative returns over the years. I took all my original Real Estate coursework in 2010, and was officially licensed in 2011 for the first time. I retook my State and National tests in 2017 due to inactivity while running an REO shop in DFW from 2012 to 2017, but now I practice full time. 

I graduated from The University of North Texas in August of 2000 with a Bachelors in Business, Minor in Organizational Behavior. My Real Estate coursework was done through Champions School of Real Estate in 2010.  

Real Estate is my 1st career now, but my years in Default Servicing were invaluable. It allowed me to work with people in all stages of life, and gave me the tools to see them through some tough times in our past economies. 

I love vacationing with the family, we have one coming up soon and I cannot wait! I also like playing golf, cooking, and watching sports of all kinds with friends and family. 

My wife and I have been married for 14 years this May and we have an 11 year old son who loves anything that has to do with gaming. 

We have three pups total; Luna our Great Pyrenees just turned three, Ranger is a Chow/Shepard/Aussie mix and he is five, and Lexi is a Chihuahua/Dachshund and is 16 years old.  

I made a dream of mine a reality in 2018 and now run a pretty sweet little shaved ice (snow cone) trailer, Matt's Sneaux Kones. We are in and around Tarrant County during the warmer months at Farmers Markets and Festivals. 

Honesty, Integrity, and years of Industry Experience are the top skills that benefit my clients.

I think the thing that sticks out most is the joy I see when I find the right home for my clients. There is simply nothing like knowing that you played a major role in fulfilling a couple's vision and making it a reality.
