Getting to know Matthew Fusco in ten questions:
1. What made you decide to get into real estate?
I was born into a family of realtors and construction; looking back, it was only a matter of time as I was exposed to real estate every day. Operating as an agent is pretty powerful, in the sense that you have the opportunity to experience some of the most intimate moments people and families share in their lifetime. It’s an extremely fulfilling and vulnerable experience to be apart of and I’m thrilled through it, I’m able to build long lasting relationships!
2. Where would we find you on a Friday night in Toronto?
Terroni … I’ve got this problem with pizza…
3. Most embarrassing real-estate moment:
Rookie year, I had booked a few showings for a potential client and on that same day I went out and purchased a brand new phone for my blooming real estate biz. When I arrived at our first showing, I realized that I didn’t have any information on how to locate and open any of the lock boxes because they were all on my old phone which I had wiped – I looked like a total doorknob.
4. Who stands out to you / do you most admire in the business world right now?
Grant Cardone, Mike Babcock, Gary Vee, Ryan Serhant, Josh & Matt Altman, Mark Cuban and Dr. Dre.
5. What is the career philosophy / mantra / inspirational quote that gets you through tougher days?
Be obsessed or be average.
6. What is your theme song?
The Fire – The Roots.
7. Describe your dream home in three words.
One that’s filled with love, laughter, and a lot of great memories.
8. Where do you see yourself in five years?
Great question. If peer into the future and see what I’d look like five years from now, I’d hope to see myself standing shoulder to shoulder with my own team of sales professionals. I’m a huge fan of pre-construction developments, so being able to sell those projects exclusively with my own team would be a treat. I see myself being in Toronto’s top 20 agents; in my mind, anything less wouldn’t be satisfactory. I also really want my own custom cottage in beautiful Muskoka! I’d like to spend my off days there fishing, boating, and spending time with family.
9. When you’re not wheeling + dealing real estate, what can we find you doing?
Playing hockey, reading, working out and spending time with family.
10. Highlight of 2018:
All the new relationships I built. I also want to acknowledge the move from my previous brokerage to PSR.
