Matt van Winkle
Matt van WinkleFounder & CEO
Matt made his first entrepreneurial move when he decided to pursue real estate in lieu of a traditional law career. After several years as an independent broker, he opened his first RE/MAX office at Green Lake in the summer of 2011, adding offices in Bellevue and Issaquah over the next three years. When he saw inefficiencies in current real estate tech, he developed his own software to save time for the brokerage and its agents. He later co-founded a real estate startup to continue tech development from the agent and broker perspective.

In 2015 the RE/MAX On the Lake family more than doubled when it acquired RE/MAX Northwest Realtors, a company with decades of experience in the area and a rich history with RE/MAX. Now with over 250 agents and six locations, RE/MAX On the Lake and RE/MAX Northwest Realtors have created one of the largest brokerages in Washington state.

With an emphasis on collaboration and growth, Matt and his team and always looking for new technology to help agents work better and smarter. In every transaction, Matt lives by our motto: Work Hard, Be Nice.
