(352) 615-7001

With $188,000,000 in volume in 2021, Matt is once again Marion County’s leading realtor.  

He believes that teamwork, education and being invested in the community are keys to success.

“Our clients come to us not just for our knowledge of horse farms, but because of how involved we are in the equestrian community, whether it is protecting horse farms or the area’s open spaces through organizations such as Horse Farms Forever,” says Matt, a founding member of the organization.

He says the team at Ocala Horse Properties works together to ensure that every client enjoys the ultimate in customer service.  

“It’s about working together so all of us succeed,” he insists. “There’s no better team than I have with my business partners Chris and Rob Desino and our wonderful staff.”

In selling more than double the next closest realtor in 2021, Matt says education is imperative.  

“Our extensive experience allows us to educate clients to a higher degree than the competition and the numbers in 2021 confirm that,” he states.    

Matt started in real estate at 23 and later became the number one realtor in Wellington (Palm Beach County) before he moved to Ocala. Matt and his wife, equine veterinarian Dr. Courtney Varney, live on a horse farm with their son Hudson.
