About Mathew Haugen

Buying and selling your home are arguably most-important purchases of your life. It's time to elevate what you expect from your agent. You deserve, and quite frankly can't afford anything less. Simply put, my team delivers this excellence....every day....every time!

My mission is to provide the BEST real estate experiences through a combination of high skill, and next-level tactics governed by the guiding principles of personal authenticity, community service, and respect for the human spirit. In 2016 I founded Element Real Estate to manifest this vision and in doing so redefined what it means to be "a great agent".

As for myself, was licensed in 2006, and have spent the better part of a decade as an active real estate investor and analyst. I have an intimate understanding of our local markets and have mastered maximizing equity and creating value.

Prior to that, I built a advertising-tech business in Silicon Valley which sold in 2014 for $150m. I draw from this experience and skills to provide the BEST real estate experiences to my clients. I'm an advocate of high technology to increase service level and maximize efficiency but understand there is NO SUBSTITUTE for high-touch, mindfulness and thoughtful personal service.

I've lived on Coast since grade school and currently reside in El Granada with my wife and 4 children. When I'm not crushing deals on behalf of my clients, you'll find me surfing, spending time with my family, or actively involved as a board member of numerous local, non-profit organizations.

If you have questions regarding the market, buying, selling, investing, etc. just give me a ring. I would love to hear from you!
