Pittsburgh-Based Mat Simmons Group Joins Real
Real is excited to announce that Pittsburgh-based Mat Simmons Group is joining our company. The addition marks the third team to join Real since the technology-powered brokerage entered the teams space late last year.
Mat Simmons Group is a residential six-person team, featuring five licensed agents and an inside sales agent in Pittsburgh, Tampa, Miami and Houston. Mat Simmons chose to bring his team under Real because he believes Real’s technology platform will give his team an edge.
“Real’s tools allow us to spend less time in the office and more time out in the field pitching listings and working with buyers,” Simmons says. “In addition, Real’s national presence allows us to expand into other markets, and their higher splits mean we keep more of what we earn.”
Mat Simmons, a former professional motocross racer from Pittsburgh, launched his team in 2014 after building and selling businesses in retail, marketing, and manufacturing. He says his teams’ success lies in its marketing efforts and dedication to providing a great customer experience.
“We leverage online platforms that most other agents don’t have a clue how to use to generate a ton of leads,” Simmons says. “We combine that with the way we built out our team so that every client is guaranteed constant communication throughout the process.”
With Real as its brokerage, Mat Simmons Realty Group is aiming to reach $30 million in 2019 sales in Pennsylvania, and to expand his team further in Houston and Florida, where Simmons is also a licensed agent, under the Real umbrella.
Being a former professional racer has taught Simmons how to think on his feet and make quick choices. In business he says this helps him to think strategically and pivot in ways that will benefit his business. He also operates under the belief that anything worth doing is worth doing with 110% effort. For agents interested in working with him, Simmons has a pitch:
“For newer agents we will cut down on your learning curve and teach you how to generate a large number of inbound leads,” Simmons says. “We also offer generous splits because we want everyone to make good money.”
