Meet Matt von Riesen

Artist Gretchen Norwalk drew the cariacature that you see here on my website. I thought you might like to meet the “real” me. And as you can see, Gretchen captured my lop-sided smile, but kindly gave me more hair (and less gray) than I actually have.Sometimes I wear contacts, and at other times I wear glasses, so we added the goggles to Gretchen’s portrait.

The key benefit I offer my clients is experience. I’ve been in sales and marketing for almost 40 years with 20 years as a real estate agent. I have successfully assisted many, many clients in Northern Colorado in their home selling and buying needs.

I came to Fort Collins in 1972 and graduated from Colorado State University with a bachelor of science degree. I then carved out a career in sales and marketing and remained here to backpack, fish, ski and enjoy the incredible quality of life this region affords. I can’t imagine being anywhere else!

We raised our sons here, and my parents retired here. This gives me valuable perspective on the schools, communities, businesses, services, cultural events, and recreational opportunities available all along the northern Front Range.

Although the kids are now grown, I continue to enjoy the benefits of living in Larimer County with all it has to offer for full and satisfying life.

But enough about me. I’m eager to assist you in any way I can!
