Matt was born and raised in Santa Clara and attended Cupertino High School. At Cupertino, he was a two-sport student athlete and received Marine Corps student-athlete of the year for his academic and athletic excellence in both baseball and football. He attended Siena College in Albany, New York on a baseball scholarship; where he went on to earn a degree in Marketing Management. Following graduation, Matt accepted a position as an Assistant Baseball Coach at Santa Clara University, where he coached for two seasons.
With his playing and coaching days behind him, Matt chose to pursue a career in construction, where he worked for a number of Bay Area general contractors in a variety of sales, marketing and executive management roles. In 2009, Matt followed the footsteps of many of his family members into the real estate industry. At that time, he was introduced to Chris Zanger and they formed a sales team. Shortly after meeting, he and Chris built a plan to bring a new type or real estate brand and brokerage to market. In 2013, their vision to develop a truly collaborative and forward-thinking boutique brand came to fruition and they co-founded Mainstream Real Estate Group.
Since inception, Mainstream grew to nearly 25 agents and approximately $500 million in cumulative sales, which Matt successfully managed. The growth and reputation of the firm made Mainstream a company to watch.
Deeply driven by growth and success for their clients and agents alike, Matt & Chris never stopped strategizing on what the next phase of their business looked like and how to take Mainstream to the next level of production. After turning down offers from many highly recognizable brands, Matt & Chris found what could only be described as a perfect partner with Climb Real Estate.
Climb, founded in San Francisco in 2010, is a leader in boutique brokerage services and part of NRT’s private label strategy. Climb’s innovation, core values and commitment to growth in the industry resonates with the vision set out for Mainstream and is an absolute win for all our clients and agents alike. Matt looks forward to leveraging Climb’s innovative technology platforms, as well as their regional and national reach to enhance the buying and selling process for all his clients.
Matt lives with his daughter Prestley and son Hudson. He is a fitness guru, skier, and a member of the Silicon Valley Association of Realtors & Santa Clara County Association of Realtors. Matt also volunteers for Project Cornerstone, which helps individuals and communities build a web of support around young people, to help them grow into healthy, caring and responsible adults.
