Matthew is a fifth generation native Santa Fean. A portion of his family history includes both great-grandfathers having been mayors of Santa Fe as well as an aunt who was the first female Appellate Court judge in New Mexico. Having arrived in New Mexico in the 1850’s the Sargent family had diverse interests from ranching in Northern New Mexico to hotel proprietorship in Santa Fe. Matthew descends from a long line of real estate professionals including his father Wally Sargent, who founded a full service real estate brokerage in Santa Fe. Matthew's strong work ethic, his professionalism, enthusiasm, and in-depth knowledge of Santa Fe real estate are strengths that have set him apart and made him a top-producing broker, year after year.
