Residential Broker - Traditional, Short Sale and Multi Family

What do you get when you combine a real estate broker with a seasoned real estate appraiser?  The best real estate experience one could hope for.  Matt has been in the real estate game in one form or another for 12+ years.   Matt worked for 12 years in the family business of real estate appraisals before taking the next logical step of becoming a licensed real estate broker.  Having the background of setting values throughout Wisconsin and Illinois affords his buyers the expertise of finding a bargain and his sellers are assured that the property is listed for the true value that will bring in the top dollar in the least amount of time.


Matt saw the difficulty within the short sale market and wanted to find a way to help buyers and owners alike. He knew there had to be a better way to find bargains for his buyers without the usual 6-8 months of torture most buyers have gone through to buy a short sale.  And, there had to be a way for sellers to be able to sell a distressed property without facing financial ruin for years to come. Matt sought out one of the best teams in the industry to assist distressed owners and those efforts paid off. Matt has become one of Northern Illinois’ Top Short Sale Agents by teaming up with the professionals at Distressed Property Solutions Network. In 2016 alone, they facilitated over $5,000,000 in short sales, eliminated $3.5 Million is mortgage debt and helped sellers avoid the dreaded foreclosure consequence and buyers find bargains they never dreamt were possible. 


Matt and his team average less than 30 days from the time a buyer submits an offer on a short sale to having a lenders approval to close.  Once the banks approve the offer and the sale can move forward, the only thing left is buyers financing.  The team even has mortgage and lender network partners ready to put that financing in motion.
