Matt Polinchak


A native of Wilkes-Barre, PA – I am proud to call Raleigh home. I have been a realtor full-time since 2010, but I started my career as a teacher, and I apply that same mindset to real estate. My favorite aspect of real estate is helping others achieve their goals. I approach every transaction with the client’s best interest in mind, and I work to serve all as a trusted advisor and friend.

My specialty is working with buyers, sellers, and investors in the Triangle area. I’m excited to be a part of the Chappell team, who are such movers and shakers in this competitive real estate market.

When I’m not assisting clients, you can find me with my family volunteering, brewery hopping, working out, or watching football & soccer. As a die-hard Philadelphia Eagles fan, I wear my Wentz jersey as often as I wear my suit. Some of my favorite local restaurants & stops include Bella Monica, City Market Sushi, Stanbury, and Barcelona.

MATT's Clients

"We were extremely pleased with the process"

"My parents worked with Matt a few years ago and enjoyed their experience greatly. When my partner and I decided to look for a house, I knew just who to go to! Matt was great about answering our questions quickly, regardless of what time it was. We first chatted with him at the end of January, and only 6 weeks later we closed on our new home! We were extremely pleased with the process, and will definitely reach out to him again when it comes time for us to move again."

"Easily the very best realtor we have ever worked with"

"Matt is phenomenal! He is very professional, readily available, and highly knowledgeable. Matt recently helped my husband and I find the right house to purchase in Cary NC. Matt’s keen analytical skills were instrumental to our success in the current seller’s market. He sorted through and filtered out what seemed like hundreds of overpriced houses and houses without upside. Matt was always flexible with his schedule to show us houses. He worked hard and strategically to negotiate the contract with the sellers, and he was fully available during the closing process. Matt is easily the very best realtor we have ever worked with. We definitely recommend Matt!"

"Professional, friendly & honest!"

"Professional, friendly & honest! We were first time home buyers, new to the area, and purchasing a home during the COVID-19 pandemic! What a mess! We had a million questions & Matt answered them all. His knowledge of the area is amazing, even updating us on commute times & local school information. We were looking for someone that could communicate effortlessly via email & text due to our work schedules and Matt never missed a beat. We felt well taken care of & feel that we were given honest information and recommendations. We'll be calling Matt again when it's time to sell & upgrade to our forever home!"
