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.

Love the huge kitchen sink, but I’ve never seen such a small prep or bar sink before… And now for something completely different… a contemporary take on a Southwest kitchen. Instead of traditional cabinets, there is a concrete counter/cabinet combo with cabinet doors and appliance directly built into the concrete. A charming and unique take on a kitchen that’s really unlike any other. 3 And now for something completely different… a contemporary take on a Southwest kitchen.

coryscritch Very nice! The right door doesn’t open all the way though
mattvanwinkle.tx @coryscritch I was in the way 😂😂 it would open enough for easy access

rs_ramsey Why does a guy who cant identify a wet bar feel like he needs to make videos about renos?
mattvanwinkle.tx Because I’m special 👏
kahluakozkanekeg Poor choices
builder_mike_ro Looks like wet bar vs prep sink, too far from the golden triangle
builder_mike_ro @mattvanwinkle.tx definitely out of place
mattvanwinkle.tx @builder_mike_ro yeah it was more of a wet bar, but still the tiniest wet bar sink on such a huge cabinet.
