In 2015, after Matt Engle began listening intently to the Bigger Pockets real estate-investment podcast and buying investment properties, he had a career epiphany and decided to become a Realtor. Eight years later, he’s serving a diverse clientele throughout Chicago’s neighborhoods. Specializing in condos, multi-units, new construction and single-family properties, he’s well-versed when it comes to explaining the unique, exciting features each area and property offers.
Hard work and dedication pay off in the real estate industry, and Engle has the professional recognition to prove it. The Chicago Association of Realtors designated him a Top Producer from 2016 to 2021. As the team lead of Matt Engle Group, he understands how teamwork benefits his clients, since his group can offer more coverage for showings and listings. Engle’s wife, Verona, serves as team administrator, and he credits her with being the glue that holds the group together with her unswerving support.
Engle’s business style is transparent and highly process driven. He relies heavily on Asana and e-mail guides to quickly respond to questions and ensure that no detail of a transaction is missed. Engle also believes in presenting his clients with detailed market analyses and comparables, so they can make informed decisions.
The best interests of his clients come first, and Engle won’t hold back from sharing his opinion when he believes it will protect them. The significant renovations that Engle’s done on his own properties have given him in-depth knowledge of the processes and costs of remodeling. He’s more than happy to pass this knowledge along.
During off-hours, Engle and his wife love spending time with their yellow lab, Walton, exploring every restaurant in Chicago–from high end to hole in the wall, and traveling as much as possible.
