Orange County native Matt Blashaw, nationally recognized as the host of several popular home improvement programs on HGTV and DIY networks, is raising the bar for excellence in real estate in his very own backyard. After spending many years in various facets of the home industry, Matt decided to bring his career journey full circle by becoming a residential real estate expert in coastal Orange County. His comprehensive experience encompassing construction, design and the home buying and selling process provides his clientele with a rich perspective for their residential real estate needs.
Globally respected for his service driven approach and authentic communication style, Matt is dedicated to assisting his clients with the most important investment of their lives…their home. With a kindred connection to Orange County, Matt enjoys being able to assist his clients in navigating the residential real estate process. As a distinguished REALTOR® with The McMonigle Group, Matt’s focused work ethic and decades of home building experience are a true asset to the team of respected professionals.
Locally known for his commitment to giving back, Matt founded Build for Love, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing support for families with children struggling or recovering from an illness or disability by making building improvements to their home. A handpicked team of Build for Love staff and volunteers arrive at each child’s home and complete a one to two day room makeover, making it fresh, fun, and most importantly safe for the child. This could include new carpet, flooring or furniture, and also includes something fun and specifically designed for the child such as a mural. Additionally, if needed, the Build for Love team can accommodate specific building needs such as wheel chair ramps or handicap accessible bathrooms. Being able to support those in need provides Matt with a sense of fulfillment unlike any other and a deep sense of gratitude to all who contribute to each “Build for Love”.
