In 2003, after successfully completing 130 homes in three years, Matt was honored with the prestigious PROS Award for the top project manager in the DC Metro area in the 75 -100 home category. He went on to be named the firm’s 2004 Project Manager of the Year in the DC Metro area. In 2005, Matt was named Director of Construction for a high-end custom home builder.
