Raised in Hartland, Matthew has been around Ann Arbor his whole life. Both of his parents owned small businesses in Washtenaw County. Matthew’s first job was working at his Mom’s sandwich shop, Fresh Cream Café, in downtown Ann Arbor. After graduating from Eastern Michigan University with a finance degree, Matthew found that mortgages were in his blood. Sixteen years later, University Lending Group hired Matt with the task of opening up the State Street office. For the past seven years the State Street office has been the top producing office in Michigan and three of those years it was the best in the Midwest. Matthew currently lives in Pinckney with his wonderful wife of more than 27 years. They have 3 daughters, one in U of M Dental School, one a U of M undergrad, and the third a Junior in Pinckney High School.
