Matt knows the real estate business;
and he knows his market.
As a Long Island native growing up in Long Beach, NY, Matt cares deeply about his hometown community and has a passion for all things Long Island and the 5 Boroughs. Recognizing the area as a great place to live with a diverse offering in culture, activities, and more, Matt feels any homeowner has chosen a truly incredible place to live.
Matt is a dynamic visionary with wide-ranging executive management and strategic consultation experience. With a background in business and communications, Matt graduated from The State University of New York at Albany and went on to begin a career in marketing and design. Working within an array of client industries, Matt became extremely well versed in various areas of digital technology and marketing strategies both on and off the web. Confident in his skills developed as a marketer, Matt decided to branch out into the areas of insurance and real estate…especially after working closely with clientele in both areas of business.
Opening his general insurance agency (First Infinity Coverage Group, Inc. - specializing in life insurance, disability insurance, long term care insurance, health insurance and more), Matt soon found a new type of connection with his clientele. He was able to put himself in their shoes in regards to the worries and concerns about not only their present day lives, but their futures. He also recognized a sad drawback in this arena, and that was of coming across insurance agents and agencies who spent all too little time caring for their clients, their wants and needs, but placing more focus on premiums and commissions. Even home-ownership was a major concern for many of his clients, some still trying to achieve that dream while balancing budgets and caring for their families. Naturally…embarking on a second career in real estate was the next step.
After extensive training with his family owned brokerage, Progressive Realty Group USA, Inc., Matt became licensed and quickly rose to his place as a Top Agent within the company. He is the proud recipient of the Platinum Circle Award, an award reserved only for The Top 3 Producers Company-wide. Bringing his belief that it’s important to always put people first, along with consistently delivering 100% satisfaction, is what has helped him achieve this success as a full time real estate salesperson. Just as with insurance, every transaction does contain a human element and this should never be forgotten (something that again sadly, many real estate agents overlook).
In the world of real estate, Matt has developed an unparalleled reputation for not just professionalism, but for the care and time he puts into all of his clientele. Attuned to what some might consider a Diamond Standard of Real Estate Concierge Service™, his clientele achieve their dreams in real estate, whether it be the sale or a purchase of a home, all the while receiving guidance and education. He has come to be known as the Realtor® who truly cares about his clients; he makes himself readily available to help…even into late hours of the night. Each and every client receives his personal attention coupled with the support of an experienced team. As you’ll see with any of his 5-Star Reviews, his real estate clients are pleasantly shocked at just how attentive Matt was to their needs…how realistic, honest and upfront he was about every facet of the real estate transaction…and how he remains in their lives long after the close itself. For Matt, building relationships is just as important as the sale itself.
