About Matt Hunker

I learned very early on in my life about the importance of homeownership, as I purchased my first home when I was 21 years old and studying business and marketing at the University of Central Florida.  #GoKnights. There are many great reasons why I chose to become a Realtor and why I am so passionate about helping individuals and families with all of their real property needs and wants.  At the core of my relationship with my clients lies my concern and commitments with the quality of their lives.  My approach to real estate with my clients begins with fully understanding their needs. I seek to provide solutions to my clients challenges by using all of my resources and local knowledge, while always going above and beyond to deliver personalized client service.  My job is to protect my client’s interests throughout the home buying and selling processes and save you precious time and money through expert negotiation and problem solving.

The power of teamwork and sense of family values have helped us at First Team Real Estate to secure our position as the #1 Independent Brokerage in Southern California for 19 years straight!  When you hire me, you also get over 40 years of experience in managing real estate transactions with the support and reliability of our network of professionals.

Everyday I strive to make a positive impact in my community.  Outside of real estate I enjoy spending time with my beautiful wife and son.  You can catch us surfing, snowboarding, skateboarding, hiking, playing ball, and spending as much time outside and at the beach as possible. My wife and I love to travel and experience other cultures and people. We have been to Patagonia, Europe, Japan, and Indonesia together. I have also been to Costa Rica and Puerto Rico on several surf expeditions with friends. I am also very passionate about protecting, and advocating for a clean and healthy environment. I am an active core member of the Surfrider Foundation, helping to preserve our oceans, beaches, and waterways.

I very much look forward to connecting with you and your family and helping you with all of your real property, lifestyle, and housing goals.

Dedicated to your Success-

Matt Hunker
