Sales Associate

Call or Text: 307-210-8787 Email: matt@powerslandbrokerage.com

Born into a 4th generation farming family in Ohio, Matt grew up in the agricultural belt of the Midwest. Some of his earliest memories are of riding in tractors and exploring the vast crop fields on his family’s farm. Matt was involved in 4-H and learned the definition of hard work at an early age.

After graduating from college, Matt and his wife, Chelsea, moved to Alaska where he worked as a high school teacher and fishing guide during the summers. During his ten-year guiding career, Matt spent thousands of days in the backcountry of Alaska where he would often see more bears than people in a day. These trips taught him the value of relationships and trust as he and his clients relied on each other to keep themselves safe from the dangers associated with the Alaska wilderness. Along with guiding, Matt worked closely with dozens of lodge owners on the Kenai Peninsula to offer the best possible experiences for their clients. He learned the lodge business well and knows the level of commitment and hard work it takes to be successful.

Matt and Chelsea currently reside in Sheridan, Wyoming with their dogs and horses. In his free time, you will either find Matt recreating in the Big Horn Mountains targeting trout with his fly rod, slipping through the aspens in pursuit of an early morning elk bugle, or roaming the Montana prairie with his dogs in search of the next flush.

Matt is licensed in Wyoming and Alaska where he specializes in large ranch and recreational property sales along with lodge sales in Alaska and Montana.
