Matt considers himself blessed to be a Breckenridge native. He gladly welcomes people into the community with his warm personality and inviting nature. Matt’s family legacy of serving Summit County’s guests started with his dad, Gene Dayton (aka Papa Nordic), in the 60’s with a small ski touring school. Gene co-founded the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center (outdoor adaptive learning school) in 1977 and is the started the Breckenridge Nordic Center in 1984 which he and his wife Therese still operate today. Growing up in a family business that is dedicated to the community has taught Matt the true meaning of customer service. Matt’s dedication to the sport of skiing earned him a spot on the 2002 Salt Lake Olympic team, where he anchored the 4th place Nordic Combined relay team. After the Olympics, Matt moved back to Summit County, gained experience and knowledge in the construction trade, before becoming a full time Realtor. Matt and his wife share their love of skiing, hiking, biking, and all things Summit County with their three children.

In addition to putting his client’s needs first, Matt values giving to those in need throughout the world, with a portion of his sales commissions going to help support Tree of Life Ministries, an organization that assists and cares for impoverished people in Nicaragua.

"Matt was my listing Real Estate Agent for the sale of my home in Breckenridge in 2015. Having never sold a home on my own, Matt gave me great advice regarding preparing my house for the sale and offered me valuable information on what I could expect, what the Market in my area was experiencing. Having grown up in Breckenridge Matt knows the County well and the constantly changing Market, whether you are selling or purchasing a home.
