The Delicious Real Estate Team in Columbus, Ohio

Welcome to Delicious Real Estate! As a business, we value pro-client, education-focused, high tech, highly transparent real estate transactions. Our Agents have earned and maintained our reputation for excellence by implementing and setting industry-wide best practices day-in and day-out.

Columbus Real Estate Agents are often ‘specializing’ in something. They eagerly promote their fine skills in areas such as ‘First Time Homebuyers’ – ‘Luxury Properties’ or ‘Historic Homes’, ‘foreclosure specialist’ or ‘Short Sale Expert’. You’ll see Columbus Realtors touting their specializations in a long list that encompasses everything under the sun. We all know that when you specialize in everything, you specialize in nothing.

At Delicious Real Estate, we specialize in Advocacy. We take care of our clients and we take our duty of looking out for their best interests above all else very seriously.
At Delicious Real Estate, we specialize in Communication. You will always know what is going on now and what is coming next and how well your listing is performing.
At Delicious Real Estate, we specialize in Integrity. We will never represent both sides of a real estate transaction. We cap our listing side commission at $6,000 because we don’t believe in stealing our client’s home equity and we think the sale price has nothing to do with what your agent should be paid.
At Delicious Real Estate, we specialize in Professionalism. We pride ourselves on creating a world-class company culture with only the best agents using the best tools to accomplish industry-wide best practices.
At Delicious Real Estate, we specialize in Results. We get the job done.

Our team always strives to develop and implement smarter, more practical strategies to help our clients successfully navigate and execute their real estate transactions.

Please allow us to introduce you to our team – the men and women that take advocacy, communication, integrity and professionalism seriously and make these values work for you!

Matt Ward : Real Estate Agent

Matt Ward

Real Estate Agent

CONTACT: 6148052231

Matt Ward is an expert project planner. His communication skills and processes have been adopted by professionals around the country. He knows what questions to ask you to help you narrow down your personal vision to make the process of buying and selling a home much more mentally manageable.

Matt Ward was born and raised in Lancaster, Ohio. In 1998 he moved to Columbus to begin college. Matt graduated with a degree in marketing from Franklin University in 2004. He then transferred to Wilmington, North Carolina with his job where he began to perform stand-up comedy. In NC he co-founded The Cape Fear Comedy Festival and met his wife Jennifer in Carolina Beach. The two fell in love and were married in the summer of 2009.

In 2010 Matt and his wife relocated to Knoxville, Tennessee and founded Super Cat Productions, a comedy production company. Ward then took a huge risk. He left his corporate job before the couple had their first child.  He knew that the work life balance of the retail wireless industry would not be a good fit for raising a child.

His son Sam Ward was born in October of 2011. In 2016 the Wards decided to sell their home in Knoxville and move back to the Columbus area. “My mom still lives in Lancaster and had recently retired, so she was wanting to see her grandson more.” Ward cited as his primary motivation for the move back. However, he was also hungry to return to the multiculturalism that was prolific in Central Ohio.

“We tried to sell our home in Knoxville on our own in 2015 and eventually had to hire a real estate agent.” Ward recalls. “Throughout the process I saw opportunities for how our experience could have been greatly improved which sparked my interest in becoming a real estate professional.” Ward recalls. Upon moving back to Ohio Ward enrolled in classes at Columbus State Community College with plans to obtain his Real Estate license.

When Matt sets his sites on a goal, he is going to achieve it. He received his real estate licensing in June of 2017.
