Matt Solomon is a born-and-bred New Yorker whose passion for real estate stemmed from his grandparents owning multiple properties throughout the Hamptons and various neighborhoods in New York City. He grew up learning all about the luxury market, while harnessing his marketing and communication skills to one day successfully go into the real estate business himself.
