Matt Connolly Bio
Matt Connolly, is co-founder of Pike Properties, but his background did not begin in real estate. After graduating from University of North Carolina at Wilmington with a degree in marketing, he migrated to Charlotte and began a career in the office equipment business. Matt started his journey as a entry level sales executive, but quickly moved up to a product specialist and subsequently a into a management role.
After proving his ability to lead, he was promoted to Sales Manager of a struggling branch in Greensboro. Within 12 months, he and his team were able to turn the location around to become one of the most profitable branches in the company. After proven himself with that turnaround, he moved to Florida to be part of a start-up office equipment business and earning a “sweat” equity position in the company.
Still feeling unsatisfying professionally, it was clear that he needed to start his own company and follow his passion – real estate. Leaving Florida and returning to Charlotte in 2008, Pike Properties was born. He began the company with long time friend and fraternity brother Anthony Moore.
Together the two have gained knowledge an all aspects of real estate investing. Early on they were fortunate to be mentored by Than Merrill and Paul Esajian, stars of A&E’s television show “Flip This House”. The knowledge gained by learning their systems and techniques was a huge factor in the success of the company.
After years of successfully implementing their proven investment and business building strategies, Than & Paul asked Matt to join their education company Fortune Builders. It was time for things to come full circle and give that same knowledge to the next generation of investors. Matt accepted a role as a public speaker, trainer and facilitator. For 2 years he traveled the country as the keynote speaker for 3-day real estate workshops. During that time, he was able to help countless people transform their dream of becoming a real estate investor into a reality. During his tenure as a public speaker, he was able to speak to over 15,000 students and accumulated over 1,200 hours of stage time.
After 2 years on the road it was time to settle back down at home and do two things. Expand his family and take Pike Properties to the next level. Both happened on the same day in fact. On June 2nd, Matt’s son Ethan was born and he also officially became a licensed general contractor. How about that for timing?
