Broker & Owner
Matt loves to build things. It could be an addition to the chicken coop, a kitchen remodel, or a real estate firm that brings his passion for people and houses together in a business built on integrity, honesty and fairness. Real estate isn’t just a job, or even a career for Matt; it’s who he is and what he loves.
With a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from UW-Madison, an Executive MBA from UW-Milwaukee’s Lubar School of Business, and eight years in the US Army Corp of Engineers, Matt’s extensive construction and engineering knowledge is something you don’t often see in the real estate brokerage world. He knows how the concrete foundation was poured, how the frame was constructed and can verbally break down a house to its most basic materials and then build it back up so that his clients understand exactly what they’re buying or selling.

Brynn is a natural caregiver. Her emotional intelligence, sharp intellect, thoughtfulness, and ability to hear what isn’t being said stem from her training and experience as a neonatal intensive care nurse.
In real estate, like nursing, details are important. Brynn pays attention to all the big and small things that matter most to our clients. She sees the themes and underlying connections others often miss (and after multiple showings, she’ll remember what a client liked about the very first home we showed them).
