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.

Y… Preparing to list your home can quickly become overwhelming, especially when considering all the minor updates you believe are necessary before hitting the market.

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.
