Matthew grew up in the San Francisco Bay area. He began performing in show business when he was 5 years old, but his parents also opened his eyes to the world of antiques, and he started collecting as soon as he could walk. By the time he was 10, his room looked like an antique store. He learned to wheel and deal like a pro and had a good eye for quality and value. He read books, studied antiques, and picked the brains of the dealers and collectors he met.
When he was 22, Matthew joined the stage actor's union and landed his first professional job. Now he needed a way to survive while pursuing his acting career, so of course, he turned to antiques! Years of reading, studying, buying and selling began to pay off. When he wasn't auditioning, he was on the hunt for the next deal and the next sale. He became a regular at every thrift store, junk store and antique store in the city. As an actor, Matthew toured with several Broadway productions.
Matthew and his best friend started an art and antiquities business in New York City. They shopped flea markets and auctions from New York to Pennsylvania and became street smart veterans of the antique world dealing with some of the largest antique dealers in the world.
When Matthew moved back to California in 2010 the need and desire to help people realize the true value of their prized possessions inspired Matthew to start Anchor Estate Sales. Through his problem solving and negotiating Matthew was able to expand his desires to further help his clients by getting into the world of real estate sales. Matthew wanted to offer his clients an opportunity that no one else could. Putting clients and their needs first by offering unsurpassed quality customer service.
