Matthew was raised in Round Rock, Texas where he loved playing sports and competing in anything imaginable with his younger brother. It was around the age of 13 that Matt saw his single mother start to invest in real estate and he was immediately drawn to the industry. At the age of 17 Matt became a licensed realtor and worked through college at Texas A&M Corpus Christi. He earned his degree but his mind was made up that real estate was the path for him. He went on to earn a Masters of Real Estate from Texas A&M in College Station and started a career in commercial real estate. In 2015, alongside his wife Lexi, Matt started TRE Homes Property Management and three short years later he left commercial real estate to grow his company full-time. In 2020, he merged his property management company with another industry leader. He then doubled down on growing his brokerage, Teifke Real Estate. He brought on a long-time friend as a Partner, Alex Coffman.
