Print Agent Bio

I love the wonderland that is the Pacific Northwest.

That I can go fishing within an hour of any direction I head.

That my wife and I can take our two kids camping in the mountains to exploring the coast in a single weekend.

That people look you in the eye here and say hello.

That they’ll tell you where the best dog parks are or where to find the sweetest happy hour.

I love that I’ve found a career where I get to help people find the neighborhoods where they’re going to put down roots and discover this all for themselves. Before real estate, I made a living building up small businesses in and around Portland, Oregon.

Most recently, as the Director of Sales at Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co. I was honored to share with clients my pride that we handcrafted our products right here in Portland. Our commitment in designing and building heirloom quality lighting was directly related to the DIY ethos of our city. This is a place where people take life into their own hands and build their dreams.

Earlier on in my career, I earned a chapter in the book, Caffeinated PDX titled Matt Brown: Portland’s Let’s Get It Done Guy. There, author Will Hutchens documented my journey from running some of the hottest coffeehouses in Portland to leading and driving sales at local coffee roasters: Coava and Stumptown.

My success came from my genuine heart for connecting people and my passion to help their businesses not only become more profitable, but also to move towards the goals that caused them to become entrepreneurs in the first place.

I still do this today, but instead of building up businesses, I get to build up the lives of the people behind them.

"I am so thrilled we happened to meet Matt. As a first time home buyer, I always had a ton of questions and Matt was so patient and willing to talk us through everything. He really guided us through a lot of our decisions by giving us the info we needed and making sure we understood instead of just saying "do this or don't do this". It taught us so much more about all the things to consider and helped us really understand how to go through the whole process. I felt so much more confident knowing he was helping us. He also had a lot of great recommendations for additional people we could work with - we had a great experience with everyone. We are so happy in our first home and look forward to working with Matt again if we decide to sell or buy again."

"Matt helped us buy our second home and he was great to work with. I don't think we realized how much we disliked our first realtor until we got to work with Matt because he really went above and beyond for us. He's super honest, transparent, and he knows his stuff. He's also just a chill and funny dude who we genuinely like to hang around, which definitely made the whole home buying experience feel less stressful. We really appreciated all his hard work and thoughtful gestures."

"We knew it would be challenging to make a cross country move to the PNW - but thank goodness for Matt Brown. After a "get to know you" conversation, Matt took all of our wishes and dreams and crafted up the perfect amount of showings that had to happen in a very condensed timeframe. Matt was available, considerate, open to our whirlwind situation and went the extra mile for us when things, as they often do, went a little crazy. We couldn't have made the move without him and thank our lucky NC stars he was there to help us find our perfect PNW home! We highly recommend him!"

"Matt Brown is amazing. The amount of information he was able to provide about each neighborhood we visited really solidified where we wanted to find a home. Once we did, he constantly kept us in the loop on every aspect of our purchase. He connected us to our lender and even lined up all of the inspections."

"Matt will help you find a home! Of course, he will, that's his job. But, Matt doesn't just do his job. He shows up every day ready for an adventure (and usually has coffee for you). He always has an answer to your question, he has a great local knowledge and really cares about what you want.

Matt walked through every single house that I thought might be the one. When I finally found my home, he was there.... with flowers!

Find your home with Matt's help."
