About Matt Desmond
Matt has lived in Santa Fe, NM since 1991. Early on, he spent years working in the Restaurant and Service industry while earning money to attend college. Over 22 years of living and working in Santa Fe – he knows the Community, he knows the locals.
Rather than jumping into the business with no experience, Matt chose to spend his first 2 1/2 years working as an assistant broker to a highly experienced Realtor. This proved to be a very productive use of his time. In his first 2 1/2 years, Matt participated in more than 100 transactions, and helped close over 120 million dollars sales. Eventually, he was writing a significant percentage of the contracts, negotiating the offers, and representing many of the Buyers and Sellers.
Matt has experience in residential construction and has great relationships with local builders and contractors. When building his first house, he hired every sub-contractor under the condition that he got to be their employee and learn their trade.
Most recently he worked as a Project Development Manager in the renewable energy industry. This utility scale development included securing land for projects, permitting, working with county planning & zoning boards, county commissioners, biologists, geologists, engineers,meteorologists, etc.
The scale of these projects required investment from well known banks and sponsors as well as frequent interaction with their attorneys and executives. Matt had a vital role in the efforts to sell the power from these projects to utilities companies and frequently prepared the final proposals.
PERSONALITY AND WORK ETHIC
To be a successful endurance athlete what would you expect? In his spare time, Matt has raced as a professional Ironman Triathlete and continues to participate in endurance sports. While many people can talk about their work ethic, this is quality that is inherent to successful endurance athletes. The same tenacity and work ethic that have helped Matt become a successful athlete are the qualities that instill confidence in his clients.
The real estate industry has evolved. The internet has become a great tool for both Buyers and Sellers. Matt embraced this technology early on, which gave him an edge over many of the brokers who were comfortable with the status quo. He uses as many internet tools as possible to maximize exposure for listings and develop new customer relationships.
