About Matt

I'm in the U.S. Air Force and originally from Long Island, New York. After 10+ years in the military, I've lived in many places...but have always wanted to come live near the mountains in Colorado. After spending 4 years in the Washington, DC area, I finally had that opportunity to come to Colorado.

Matt purchased this House in 2011

Why Matt chose East Colorado Springs

I set out to purchase my first home here upon arrival in Colorado Springs, and absolutely fell in love with this home from the moment I saw it. With everything I wanted -- historic character, modern touches, open layout, and close to the heart of downtown, this unique home is my dream house.

What makes this House unique

As an avid entertainer, I thoroughly enjoy the gourmet kitchen and dining table for 12+... but the media room is the feature that initially caught my eye, and I've hosted numerous movie nights and viewings of major sporting events here.

                                                                  Misti C.Everton

                                                                  This house is laid out perfectly for a family of 11 ranging in age from 3-50 years old. We weren't stepping on eachother. Lots of space for everyone. It was stocked great. Plenty of towels and robes. The hot tub was fantastic. James, the manager, was very good to us and responsive when we needed something. I would recommend anybody driving a car that is low to NOT enter or exit the driveway from the front of house. Find the alleyway behind the house and enter the driveway there. You will be happy and so will your car!
