Matthew Smith was working in the organic food industry before beginning his real estate career in 2013. With a career real estate mother (a 20 year industry veteran) and having grown up around real estate from an early age, it was only natural that he would end up in the business when the timing was right. Matthew enjoys meeting people and getting a feel for who they are and what they want. His strong ability to relate to people and put himself in their shoes by listening and understanding what they need is key to his success. Matthew knows that real estate isn't just about money and appraisal of homes, but about dealing with real people and being sensitive to the different needs people have at different points in their lives. His philosophy in life is to love what you do, have fun, enjoy life and live it to the fullest. Matthew deals with first-time buyers, second-time buyers, young couples and especially young families starting out.
