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.
