We had the good fortune of connecting with Matt Wheatley and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Matt, is there something you can share with us that those outside of the industry might not be aware of?
Most public perception of a Realtor is “OVERPAID” since all they do is networking, drinking events, lots of fun, beach life, ect.. which is our fault as realtors because we only share the fun stuff, 85-90% of the time is hard work, the right Realtor matters, because the knowledge and experience of the agent often dictates how smooth things go AND how much money is left in YOUR POCKET.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
It was not “HARD” but it took a lot of effort, consistently over time, so it was being discipled enough to know it wont happen for me right away, but if i stay the course, do the right thing and keep learning my craft, it will eventually happen. The HARD part of that is keeping the faith and seeing the destination. For me it wasn’t difficult as i Enjoyed what i was learning/doing and how i was able to help others along the way,

The biggest lesson from that was Patience, don’t rush the process, enjoy it, soak it all up, you don’t get it back.

I’m most proud of the Best of South lake title which is voted by our community members, we have held that title from 2020-Present day

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Places of interest, of course the typical disney/universal if you’re from out of state, but if you want to know more about county and its history, you have to check out Sugarloaf MOUNTAIN, yes mountain, right here in central FL! From the highest point in florida you have lots of options… We can stroll the street of downtown Clermont on a sunday morning for the farmers market, enjoy live music and bands at local breweries. The must eat spots, Southern on 8th, over the top pita, the montrose market place, akina and Crooked spoon, juts to name a few!

If your into running, biking or swimming, we have walking/running trials and lakes to enjoy!

Ending the trip we have to take a boat cruise of the chain of lakes, take in views from nature and watch some professional wakeboarders practicing for their tournaments (We aren’t named the choice of champions for nothing)! Stopping by the famous tiki bar for some wings and refreshments as the sunsets over the lake!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
As cliche as it may seem, its my Mom. She persevered through all of life’s challenges while we followed as children, watching her, setting the example by keeping a positive mindset in a negative situation. I now lead this brokerage, business and friendships with the same mindset!
