Matt has more than 20 years of appraisal and valuation experience. Starting as a trainee in 2000, he received his general certification from the State in 2003, MAI designation in 2016, and SRA in 2019. His experience includes an extensive history of right-of-way assignments throughout the region, from small, limited-impact projects of one or a handful of property impacts to some of the largest and most complex regional projects. He has acted as both a Key Appraiser and Appraisal Project Manager, providing appraisal reports/services and an array of project planning, management, and cost estimating/forecasting. In addition to right-of-way, he has also worked for a variety of private property owners, developers, estate planners, and for attorneys in other capacities.

Matt has worked on all project lines (commuter rail, light rail, and bus rapid transit) for Sound Transit, most recently for light rail extensions from Seattle south to Federal Way and north to Lynnwood. He has worked on both large and small special benefit studies for Local Improvement District (LID)-funded projects, most notably the Sound Lake Union Streetcar and participated in various elements of the Seattle’s Waterfront Park LID. He has appraised properties for road expansion and improvement projects throughout the region for WSDOT, numerous cities, and King, Pierce and Snohomish Counties. He has presented on appraisal topics for both the Appraisal Institute and International Right-of-Way Association, regularly participates in the mediation process, and has provided expert witness testimony.

Matt has a bachelor’s degree in project management and completed the University of Washington’s Real Estate Certificate Program. Originally hailing from Florida, Matt has called Seattle home for 25 years. In what feels like a previous life, Matt spent six years in the United States Navy working in project planning and recruitment analytic capacities. With an affinity for scuba diving but a dislike for very cold water, when not working Matt is usually planning a trip, longing for, or enjoying warmer waters on a dive adventure. Or you may find him taking his Boston Terrier, Rupert, for a walk around the block.
