BJ Matson - Olney, Maryland Realtor®
Welcome and thank you for visiting!
I'm BJ Matson, a full-time Realtor® with RE/MAX.
Since the Spring of '94 I have helped clients with their sale and purchase of real estate here, AND all over Montgomery County. I grew up in Silver Spring and went to Springbrook High School class of 1988. I went to my first choice, WVU, where I got my B.S. in Finance. Montgomery County has always been home. I am committed to providing you unparalleled expertise here in Olney & the surrounding area.
I enjoy this part of north-eastern Montgomery County with my two young boys. It is here that I help coach the Olney Boys & Girls programs, & my boys participate in OBGC; flag football, baseball, tackle football, and wrestling. I live and work in this beautiful community of Olney, Sandy Spring, Ashton, Brookeville, and Laytonsville.
I hope you will use this website to search homes for sale or read my blog posts for real estate advice and local updates. I've lived in this area my entire life. There is nothing more that brings me satisfaction, than helping my community and to-be neighbors!
my history -- I’ve been helping home buyers since the Spring of 1994, when I first was hired as a Loan Officer for Elite Funding in Rockville, Maryland. Eric Strasser, with Suntrust currently, first hired me at Elite Funding. We both worked there for 3 more years as Loan Officers until we opened up our own company, Choice FinanceⓇ, in the Fall of 1998. We started in Eric’s townhome garage in Germantown, then leased space in Bethesda above the Mongolian Grill & Philadelphia Mike’s.
After a year we then moved our office to Montrose Road in Rockville where we stayed for the next 7+ years. During our stay we expanded to 30+ employees at times. We took it to the next level and became a Correspondent Lender where we had a warehouse line, drew up our own loan documents & actually funded the loans. We ran an extremely tight and ethical shop. In fact, our profit margins were small compared to most shops. Our clientele was A paper higher loan amounts, shoppers who wanted the best deal, and they got it. We built a strong referral base because of the way we believed in doing business.
We then opened up a Real Estate Brokerage. Choice Real EstateⓇ, Inc. was born and with it this website choicerealestate.net I was the President of Choice Real Estate. I am the proud creator of the website. I work hard to keep it an updated go-to resource for selling & buying real estate in Montgomery County, Maryland.
In Spring of 2010 we closed the Choice sister companies. I managed the Brokerage and I loved being a Realtor and working with clients to purchase and sell their homes. Thus, I continued this path and it will be my career until I retire.
