Matt Sylvester, a Sarasota native, can navigate the waters of the Gulf just as well as the neighborhoods of Sarasota. He grew up boating and dreaming of flying as well. After graduating from FIT with a degree in Aviation Management, he concentrated his efforts on flying as a commercial pilot and flight instructor.
After a medical issue sidelined flying professionally, Matt became a licensed financial adviser at Morgan Stanley. After the financial meltdown of 2002, he left Morgan Stanley and went to work for the Helmsley Sandcastle on Lido Beach.
After eleven years in the hotel business he left to pursue his passion for real estate and serving people. Matt still enjoys time on the water, spending time with his sons, working with investors, and helping couples navigate the preservation of their real estate during separation.
