Matthew M. Carmody portrait picture.

Matthew was born and raised in Ankeny Iowa, a small suburb of Des Moines. In 1999 he graduated from Ankeny High School. He then attended Iowa State University and graduated with a degree in Finance, with an accounting minor. He went on to get his accounting certificate at Simpson College.
Do you remember what it was like to be in your twenties and trying to buy a house?

Matthew went on to become an investment advisor with Ameriprise Financial in 2005. He traded stocks, bonds, options and consulted on insurance. He left Ameriprise to work at Wells Fargo in their sub prime mortgage department. When he saw the types of loans that were being given, he left in 2008. He decided to re-join the mortgage arena when the market calmed down and more rational loans were given.

Matthew’s goal is to help all of his clients to never have loans like he saw in 2007 and 2008. He wants his clients to feel educated and comfortable with their housing and mortgage choices.

Matthew began working with Gershman after hearing positive experiences from two of his builders he works closely with. He knows you’ll be just as satisfied with your experience.
