Matt van Winkle Realtor® & Owner

Experience has its rewards

Proud to be your Austin real estate expert

Matt and his team are constantly trying to improve the real estate experience, always experimenting and developing new ways to market and serve clients. With an emphasis on collaboration and growth, The Leverage Team uses new technology and systemization to help agents deliver an unparalleled client experience while building systemized, consistent, and profitable businesses for the agents.

Prior to leading the Leverage Team at Compass, Matt was the CEO of RE/MAX Northwest, growing from 1 agent in 2011 to 16 offices and over $5 billion in annual sales. RE/MAX Northwest was the fastest growing RE/MAX brokerage in the region and the 4th largest in the United States.

After a decade as CEO of one of the most productive national brand brokerages in the U.S. with over $30 billion in sales, Matt was inspired to build The Leverage Team by his strong belief that the client benefits most from being represented by a team of brokers that collaborate and contribute to each transaction, matched for expertise and specialization.

Sold in just 4 days for over list price! Congrats to my clients who closed on their new home, and sold this one. Lots of planning and prep went into this and they got the perfect result! If you’re selling your home in Steiner Ranch, here’s what buyers want! 🏡✨

Modern Updates: Buyers are looking for homes with updated kitchens and bathrooms. Think new countertops, modern appliances, and fresh finishes. Even small upgrades can make a big difference!

Pools: If you’ve got a pool, perfect! Let’s make it look like a dream summer vacation spot. If you don’t have a pool, we’ll mock up drawings to show how one could be added.

Extra Bedroom on the Main Floor: Many buyers in Steiner Ranch want room for parents or in-laws to visit without having to climb stairs. If you have a main floor bedroom, you’re in great shape. If not, we’ll repurpose an office or create a clear option for a downstairs bedroom.

By focusing on these key areas, you can make your home more appealing and attract serious buyers.

Here’s a bit of encouraging insight – not all updates are essential, and it really depends on your specific home.

For example, I recently advised a client who was convinced her kitchen needed a significant remodel before selling. However, upon evaluating her property, we discovered that updating the kitchen was not imperative. The home possessed unique character and charm that we believed potential buyers would find appealing, recognizing the chance to personalize the space to their liking.

This is why the expertise of a real estate agent is invaluable. I’m equipped to analyze the market, the local area, and current buyer demand to help you discern what enhancements are vital for attracting buyers and what improvements might not be as critical.

My approach is always tailored to each unique property, ensuring your home is presented in the best possible light while keeping your budget in mind.
