A New Face in Real Estate

By Lori Draz

Meet Matthew Taetsch and the team at Long and Foster Power Brokers, a new real estate brokerage dedicated to outworking the competition to better serve each and every client.

Born and raised in Monmouth County, Matthew first developed an appreciation for the real estate industry while attending Temple University in Philadelphia. His interest and mentors in the Philadelphia area led him to pursue his real estate license in Pennsylvania during his time at Temple and he immediately began his career working in and around the greater Philadelphia region. The experience he gathered during that time caused him to shift priorities and led him to somewhat loftier pursuits. He ended his time at Temple and joined the Navy, serving in Operation Enduring Freedom. After his time in the service, he returned home to New Jersey and back to his previous career: real estate.

He started with a small loan from his family, which he used to acquire a large parcel of land in the north end of Sea Bright that he subdivided and sold to a developer. This was an important part of his professional development, because he got firsthand insight into how builders handle marketing developments. He learned what they needed and then developed his own division to take on those responsibilities for the developers. It saved them thousands and made the lives of everyone, even the buyers, a lot more efficient.

Matthew prides himself on his business model for working with commercial clients. He saves them a lot of time and money by outfitting a sales department for each individual job, meaning he staffs the communities with licensed real estate agents that he has trained to sell the properties. He handles all the marketing and advertising, coordinates all the showings, negotiates the contracts, and finalizes the sales, utilizing his own title agency, Lightning Title, to facilitate all closings. Specializing in new construction, he represents some of the areas most renowned developers, including Martelli Development Group, Gotham Group, YMCA, and United Way, just to name a few.

In 2016, Matthew set out with a team of his most trusted peers to found Long and Foster Power Brokers, a brokerage dedicated to providing outstanding real estate services to clients of all sizes. The Long and Foster Power Brokersโ€™ team is committed to leaving no stone unturned, utilizing the latest in digital real estate platforms while still delivering the time-tested traditional aspects of buying and selling homes. By combining the best tools with the hardest working agents, Long and Foster Power Brokers is prepared to outwork the competition for each and every property.

Currently, the team at Long and Foster Power Brokers is preparing for their latest endeavor, The NorthWinds of Sea Bright, which will be ready for delivery in May of 2018. The NorthWinds is a community of luxury beach homes outfitted with the latest contemporary features and architecture. The 4,000-square-foot homes are positioned above the flood plain and feature an array of options like retractable glass walls and four-stop elevators, as well as rooftop decks that provide panoramic views of the ocean and riverfront, as well as Sandy Hook and the Manhattan skyline.

Another property he is proud to offer is being built by Martelli Signature Homes, well-known for creating some of the most glorious homes with their attention to detail and superior workmanship. This single family home is located at 2 Markwood Lane in Rumson. It is a large, beautiful waterfront home on a tranquil cul-de-sac with stunning views of the Navesink, soaring ceiling, and an open floor plan. The design includes a large kitchen with two center islands and stainless steel appliances, plenty of stone and marble choices, decorative molding, and many more luxurious appointments. Completion is targeted for spring 2018.
