With the analytical mind of an engineer combined with the focused desire for working with people, Matt Lucky is one of those rare individuals that bring a unique and specialized aspect to the business of real estate. Along with his wife Lisa, and daughter Laura, The Luckys are proud to offer their clients the “power of three,” each with their distinct strengths and expertise.
“I have a visual, 3-D mind,” says Matt, “that allows me a great recollection about properties and inventory in our community.” In the focused area of North Scottsdale that The Luckys represent, he’s either sold or seen nearly every single property, which offers a great advantage to his clients. However, for Matt, meeting and working with people is what brings him true joy in his career. “I relish each new opportunity that a new client brings,” he says, “because listening to their needs and setting upon the ‘project’ of exceeding their expectations is my favorite part of each day.”
Perhaps Matt’s excellent people skills came from a diverse cultural background growing up. Born in Houston and raised, in part, in Massachusetts and Santa Barbara, Matt’s family periodically lived abroad including residency in both France and Scotland.
Matt, who earned his undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering at Tulane University in New Orleans and his MBA from Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida, began his career on a drafting board for a major engineering construction company. Realizing he possessed a knack for computers, Matt worked for a contractor developing complex systems for the military, FAA, and FBI. “I’ve worked on a multitude of intriguing projects such as the military’s Longbow helicopter,” he says.
It was Honeywell that brought Matt and Lisa’s family to Arizona in the late 1990s, where Lisa began a thriving career in real estate. The decision to partner full-time with Lisa came in 2005, and by 2006, The Luckys had earned the “Top 1%” status at Russ Lyon which they’ve attained every year since. In fact, besides ranking in the top 1% among over 900 agents at the brokerage, The Luckys have achieved the #1 ranking of all the agents, based on sales volume, for both 2015 and 2016.
Matt brings his detail-oriented and analytical thinking to the team and focuses on consistency, quality and always staying ahead of their competition. In 2012, Matt and Lisa’s daughter Laura joined the thriving team, creating a true powerhouse unmatched in The Valley.
As an avid hiker and golfer, Matt has found his leisure time pleasantly spent trekking though McDowell Sonoran Preserve trails, with a personal goal to traverse each and every trail in the system. And while golf is a common draw for visitors and residents alike, Matt has the pleasure of golfing North Scottsdale’s premier courses on a regular basis and is sure to offer ‘insider perspective’ on each!
Loving where you live, and living what you love is a secret to good business. It seems Matt has found his way to do just that. “It’s a blessing to work in an industry that I love while being surrounded by the people I love the most,” says Matt. Who could disagree?
