Associate Agent, REALTOR®, CRS®
Growing up in Michigan, I developed a strong Midwestern work ethic which took me from my first paper route, through a vast array of jobs in my younger years. Eventually it landed me at the University of South Carolina where I ran track for our nationally ranked track team and earned my degree in engineering. Working with a local real estate investor throughout college, I developed the skills and experience which I then used to buy, fix and sell homes while operating a Columbia HomeVestors franchise for many years. I still use those skills to this day to help clients see the good, bad and ugly when looking at and deciding on which house to make their future home.
My engineering background gives me the attention to detail that is needed to be sure I am addressing all of my client’s needs, while finding creative solutions to make a sale happen when it might have not been possible otherwise.
What others are saying
An Absolute Privilege
Working with Michael was an absolute privilege. He was very attentive to all our requests and continuously found houses in our market and price range until we found the one that was right for us. He didn’t push houses or price points on us. He would schedule showings day or night and come prepared with all the information we needed to make a decision. Ultimately it was his craftsmanship in putting together our offer and not our offering price that won over the seller and landed us our new home over other offers. Truly we would not have been in our home without Michael. Thankful we got to work with him.
Always Available For Advice
The ART Team went above and beyond the call of duty for every aspect of our home buying process. Matt was excellent, and always available for advice. He was very knowledgeable and helpful.
Matt was very friendly and very quick to respond to any questions we had. We was also very knowledgeable and aware about every opportunities available.
Wonderful Experience from Start to Finish
Absolutely loved working with Matt and the whole team! They explained every step of the process and I always felt taken care of. Wonderful experience from start to finish.
As a first time home buyer, I am glad to have worked with Matt and The ART of Real Estate team. Matt did a great job explaining the process and answering all of my questions. He went above and beyond many times. Having Jason and the closing team assist after finding a home was a tremendous value.
Using The ART of Real Estate made the process go smooth. We never had to be home to let anyone in. All documents could be signed by email. Any questions we had we felt we could email Matt at anytime of the day. I would greatly recommend them to anyone buying or selling a home. We would not have purchased the home we bought if it wasn’t for The ART of Real Estate.
My Experience Was Great
My experience with The ART of Real Estate team was great! They made the process of buying my first home comfortable and easy!
Faster Response and Greater Availability
The ART of Real Estate team is just that – a team. Why is this important? Faster response times and greater availability. The pre-listing meetings, guidance and process were exceptional and I believe that elevated the fast traffic as well as the quick sale. Working with Matt Carroll is easy, as he always makes himself available, but more importantly, he’s seasoned and makes the process seamless.
Great Customer Service
Michael was great with customer service. Thank you for all the tools and attention to ensure a smooth process!
Made Us Feel VERY Welcome
We moved down from Virginia and we can’t say enough about Matt and the whole staff and everyone that was referred to us. They are the best. Matt went above and beyond showing us around Columbia. Everyone has made us feel VERY welcome to the state of South Carolina.
