“In my early twenties, I was thrown into real estate when I inherited a few single-family rental properties,” said Mantis. “I quickly learned how rewarding a career in the industry could be. I’m ecstatic to have found a company where I can work side-by-side with the best in the business while continuing to grow a suburban practice with Matt. We are grateful to all of our clients who have worked with us throughout the years.
