Real Estate Board of New York's (REBNY) 2017 Most Promising Salesperson of the Year

Awarded to an agent with under two years in the industry who exemplifies sound moral character, high ethical professional behavior, excellent leadership, meaningful roles in deals and significant contributions to the firm's success.

Matt’s passion for real estate, coupled with his 12-year background in accounting and finance, provides a unique advantage for his clients. Originally from Southern California, Matt has called New York City home for over a decade. After having strategically bought and sold his own apartment in Brooklyn, he is well aware of the intricacies and often personal nature of finding one’s home along with the importance of having a well-informed, patient, and loyal advocate guiding the entire process.

A licensed CPA, Matt studied Business Economics at UCLA with minors in Spanish and Accounting. Prior to joining Halstead, he had a very successful 12-year career in business at Deloitte, HBO, and Disney, where he was the Director of Finance overseeing the company’s Broadway portfolio. These experiences taught Matt that astute listening, collaboration, and patience to see projects through from ideation to execution, are critical to success.

But Matt thrives off of personal connections, and he had always dreamed of a career in real estate where he could help bring people together with their perfect homes. With his affable personality, financial savvy, and genuine interest in building relationships with his clients, he strives to make the process of buying and selling real estate an enjoyable one.

While making the leap from a successful career in finance to real estate may seem a big risk, Matt is no stranger to tackling new challenges. In 2011, he rode his bike from Boston to NYC as part of an HIV/AIDS charity event; since then, has ridden nearly 5,000 miles – the equivalent of traversing the US almost two times! – to continue to raise money and awareness. With his tenacity and dedication to the cause, he has fundraised over $75,000 for these charities.

Off his bike, Matt is an avid traveler who has visited over 25 countries throughout Europe, North & South America, and Asia. He understands domestic and international cultures and buyers’ values, and speaks fluent Spanish after having lived in Madrid for a year; French is a work in progress. You can also find Matt at the yoga studio or in the kitchen testing new creative recipes.

Matt took the time to really listen to what I was looking for, and lined up a lot of great properties that fit my criteria. We had multiple showings lined up, spread out over a very convenient and manageable multi-day schedule. But I knew I'd found the place I wanted after the second showing! Matt then worked extremely hard to guide my application through the process, even taking time to help convince my partner why the apartment we chose was such a good fit. Now my partner and I couldn't be happier. I never would have found this place without Matt's insight, connections and hard work.” – Matthew Mc.
Matt helped me find a beautiful home in Boerum hill/downtown BK. He was honest, thoughtful, super detailed and organized, followed up relentlessly when crunch time came, and ensured I got exactly what I needed every step of the way. He also handled my very exacting parents' questions with grace.

He is a pleasure to work with, and will ensure you find a home you truly love and can afford. I'd recommend Matt to all my friends looking to upgrade into their next phase of living in NY!~Melissa P

Halstead Property, LLC

Con su pasión por los bienes inmuebles, combinada con 12 años de experiencia en finanzas y contabilidad, la ventaja que ofrece Matt a sus clientes es única. Por más de una década, Matt ha vivido en Nueva York, proveniente del sur de California. Después de—estratégicamente—haber comprado y vendido su propio departamento en Brooklyn, él conoce bien las complicaciones de encontrar una propiedad, así como la importancia de encontrar durante el proceso de compra-venta a un asesor bien informado que sea paciente y leal.

Matt cuenta con CPA y estudió ciencias económicas en la UCLA, incluyendo concentraciones en español y contabilidad. Previo a Halstead, tuvo una carrera exitosa, con 12 años de experiencia en compañías como: Deloitte, HBO y últimamente Disney, en donde se desempeñó como director de finanzas y responsable de la supervisión de los espectáculos. Estas experiencias ayudaron a Matt a entender la importancia de escuchar bien, de la colaboración, y de la paciencia para llevar un proyecto desde su concepción hasta el final.

Pero para él, lo más importante siempre han sido las conexiones personales, y siempre había soñado con una carrera en los bienes inmuebles, en donde pudiera ayudar a otros a conectar con su propiedad perfecta. Con su amable personalidad, conocimiento financiero e interés por establecer y desarrollar las relaciones con sus clientes, Matt intenta hacer que el proceso de comprar o vender sea lo más fácil y placentero posible.

Aunque el salto de una carrera bien lograda en finanzas a una en los bienes inmuebles parezca un riesgo, para Matt no es extraño asumir nuevos retos. En 2011 participó en un evento en que pedaleó su bicicleta hasta completar 300 millas (500 km) de Boston a NYC y así recaudó dinero para combatir el VIH/SIDA. Desde entonces, ha recorrido en su bicicleta 5,000 millas (8,000 km) – ¡casi la distancia para atravesar dos veces los Estados Unidos de América! – con el objetivo de continuar la recaudación de fondos y crear conciencia de la prevención de enfermedades. Con su tenacidad y determinación, ha recaudado más de $75,000 para estas causas.

Además de contribuir a su comunidad, a Matt le encanta viajar; ha visitado más de 25 países por: Europa, las Américas, y Asia. Entiende los valores, tanto de sus clientes domésticos como los de sus clientes internacionales; además, aprendió español después de vivir un año en Madrid (el francés sigue en progreso). También se le puede encontrar practicando yoga o en la cocina, experimentando nuevas recetas.
