My family has owned and operated a farm in Cambridge since 1903. So, from an early age I knew what it meant to focus on the task at hand until it was done. After graduating from Lakeside Lutheran High School in Lake Mills, I went on to get an Associate’s Degree in Mechanical Design. In 1997 I joined the Stark Company Realtors.
That same year Jen and I started purchasing investment properties and established our personal real estate investment company, Victory Properties, LLC. Under the Victory Properties brand we personally own 29 rental units. Over the next few years I would help our clients to follow our template for success and purchase investment properties of their own all over Dane County.
The growing number of clients that committed to invest in real estate was overwhelming. Our clients who chose not to manage their own investments were having problems finding reliable management at a fair price. To meet that demand Jen and I starting another company. So, in 2006 Marquee Management Services, LLC was established.
In 2007 I obtained my Real Estate Brokers license and continued my Real Estate education to include:
CRS: Council of Residential Specialists
GRI: Graduate of the Real Estate Institute
ABR: Accredited Buyer’s Representative
SFR: Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource
Drone Pilot License
Jen and I have two boys, Caden and Carson. They are getting old enough now to start enjoying golf instead of just wanting to go fast in the golf cart. Both kids are also active in sports and school programs. On game days we are cheering on the Badgers, Packers Bucks and Brewers.
Here’s a few of my client testimonials:
"Matt and team were fantastic in helping us purchase a new home. They found lots of homes for us to consider on very short notice, provided advice to us out-of-owners on pros and cons of different neighborhoods, pointed out features and flaws of homes that most agents wouldn't recognize, and helped us execute the purchase of a home"
