Matt has enjoyed living in the Magic and Wood River Valleys most of his life and graduated from Boise State University with a degree in Accounting in 1981.

He then spent the next twelve years honing his property management and real estate skills before venturing out to start Engel & Associates, LLC in 2002. Matt applies his unique skill set to each client and property to help ensure success. Most rewarding are the cherished relationships with clients and friends that have grown over the past twenty seven years in the industry.
