“Matthew has impressed me from Day One, which is why we keep asking back. He has a rare grasp of the basics of the traditional brokerage business AND the potential for enhancement brought by interactive marketing and social media. He understands that it’s about people. Matthew not only has this expertise but he’s a great teacher and presenter, mixing effective delivery of concepts with humor and examples. He’s one of the best consultants/teachers in the business today….a really special talent!”

I have been in organizations where hired Matthew and I’ve also worked with him in a variety of projects over the years and he always brings new and fresh ideas to the table. I would highly recommend Matthew and his team of professionals for speaking engagements, training, or coaching your team of professionals.”

David Carner

“Matthew is an exceptional trainer, speaker and visionary in the area of technology. He is dynamic, engaging, well informed, and entertaining. Afterwards, I had the opportunity to speak with Matthew on the current state of our industry as a whole, and found that he also has a firm grasp of today’s most vexing problems, and some very original and inspired ideas on what to do about them. He is truly a renaissance man well versed in virtually all aspects of business. I am also grateful that my company has chosen to follow Matthew’s advice on a variety of questions, and hope that he continues to play a decisive role in the direction of the company.”

There are simply not enough words to describe the force that Matthew Ferrara exemplifies in business. He is by any means, a prodigy, who can consult at the highest level across all aspects of real estate business. Not only does Matthew become the voice of innovation and technology for realtors, but the advocate for deploying the fundamental skills and practices needed to be successful in real estate and how technology “supports” these commandments. Quick on his feet, creatively outstanding and fiercely loyal, Matthew is both visionary and role model within the real estate industry.”

The information he shared shook many out of their comfort zones and at the same time created excitement and energy about our changing industry. Matthew challenged people to think differently, inviting them to embrace the changes in our industry.
