A well-respected Columbia resident for over twelve years, Matt Carroll attended the University of South Carolina, where he earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering. He also lettered in track and field all four years.
Matt owned and operated the Columbia, SC HomeVestors office, the company with the prominent yellow billboards that state "We Buy Ugly Houses" for 7 years. Matt has bought and sold hundreds of distressed properties since starting HomeVestors-Opportunity Knocks, LLC in 2003. He served a two year term as an alternate for the HomeVestors National Franchisee Advisory Council, a 12 member voting board which represents the interest of the franchisees to HomeVestors Corporate Management. In the summer of 2006, he partnered with Anne Bagnal and Bagnal & Carroll Real Estate was born. Then after 5 years of successful business together, in November of 2011, Matt and Anne took the opportunity to merge Bagnal & Carroll with another very successful firm in Prudential Midlands Real Estate. While with Prudential Midlands, Matt had a lot of interactions with the Art of Real Estate Team, a division of Prudential Midlands. Matt saw the value in what the Team was doing and realized that many of his thoughts and ideas of how Real Estate transactions and client relationships should be built were in alignment with how the team operated, and in November of 2013 Matt and the team joined together and opened a new office on Millwood Avenue in Columbia.
Matt also served as the Chairman of the Rosewood Merchant's Association for several years and was an integral part of starting the Rosewood Crawfish Festival, the second biggest outdoor festival in Columbia. In December of 2006, Matt was appointed by Columbia City Council to serve on the City of Columbia Code Enforcement Task Force where he worked with 11 other Columbia residents and business owners to revise and improve the City of Columbia Codes.
