Matt Friedlander

Matt Friedlander | Realty Austin
(512) 800-0369


Matt Friedlander quickly found his niche in the Austin real estate market. He attributes his early success to his people, analytical, and negotiation skills honed over decades of business and military experience. Originally from Southern California, Matt headed to the east coast to attend the U.S. Naval Academy. He served in the United States Navy for five years before going to the University of Michigan to complete an MBA. His first role after business school was with a top-tier management consulting firm where he advised large corporations and sharpened his business skills. Tired of living out of a suitcase and ready to put down roots, Matt bought his first Austin property in 2004 and went to work at Dell where he served in a variety of strategic roles. After dabbling in a few personal real estate investment projects, he realized he not only had a knack for real estate – he but also enjoyed it. That spurred him to get his real estate license and transition into real estate full time. He has not looked back since! Matt is a perpetual learner and always goes above and beyond for his clients. He derives great satisfaction from helping others achieve their real estate goals, whether buying or selling a personal home or purchasing an investment property. In his free time, Matt is active in his local church and volunteers with civic and philanthropic organizations such as Leadership Austin and Mobiles Loaves and Fishes. He enjoys water sports on Lady Bird Lake and Lake Austin, and loves traveling the world to surf. Matt is currently a distinguished Platinum Top 50 Realtor® and Austin award winner.
