When we first introduced Matt Neal, he was a realtor and HOA manager excited about building his future at H2. Now with an extra 60 hours of education under his belt, he’s Matt Neal, real estate broker. You could say he’s earned a kind of master’s degree, and he’s already putting it to work.
The added educational component for broker licensure “focuses on problem solving, decision making, and analysis,” Matt says. It’s a level of analysis Matt really groves on, describing himself as “a behind-the-scenes problem solver.” He’s using those skills to develop an even deeper understanding of our city’s niche markets so our clients enter deals with a complete picture of their property’s value.
For instance, Matt says “Avondale is the obvious choice” for the city neighborhood with the most activity, but he believes Woodlawn is an area to watch. “My friends over at Woodlawn Cycle Cafe and Open Shop Woodlawn have been great catalysts for change in Woodlawn, and several more businesses have plans to move into the neighborhood as well.”
Downtown’s loft district continues to make headlines and for good reason, since Matt believes there’s enough demand to support the “huge influx of residential projects downtown.” But he also sees “a big untapped market” in properties for sale, especially in the $150,000-200,000 range.
Matt’s a great example of our boutique approach to Birmingham real estate, which focuses not just on current value but on future potential. Your home isn’t just a personal investment, after all, but a way of buying into a neighborhood. We think you should know what you’re getting.
