As a lifelong resident of the Wisconsin Dells area in Wisconsin his family farming heritage taught him first-hand what it means to work the land and be a wise steward of it. Being familiar with the surrounding counties (Juneau, Adams, Marquette and Columbia counties) gives him the insight on finding the perfect property for each client. He is a knowledgeable, service oriented professional with the experience to help both buyer and seller make informed decisions. Matts passion for dirt, leaves, trees and wildlife management is much more than a casual love affair, it’s a way of life. When you consider that buying or selling land is one of the largest financial transactions most people will ever make, it only makes sense to deal with a land specialist whose enthusiasm is genuine, his passion is sincere and his experience is unmatched.
