Meet Matt 'Axe'


Standout real estate agent Matt “Axe” Axelson has called San Diego, California home his whole life. In 2019, Matt began his real estate journey, immediately jumping on board with the Compass team. Before joining the industry, Matt spent his professional career working with marketing talent and brands. More specifically, he worked as a talent executive in the music industry. The knowledge Matt gained from his experiences has helped him become a top producing agent. With experience in executing multichannel marketing campaigns, Matt can drive a high level of traffic and interest in a home. Matt’s care for his clients and ability to market their current spaces make him an exceptional agent to work with from start to finish. 

Currently, Matt serves his home city of San Diego, focusing on the Northern Coastal County areas like Cardiff-by-the-Sea and Solana Beach. These areas provide clients with breathtaking views and properties from which to choose. As a San Diego native, Matt can speak to the lifestyle that these communities provide. Matt loves the active culture and outdoor lifestyle that’s characteristic of this area.

With an ambitious and charismatic attitude, Matt is truly there for his clients. His favorite part of the business is helping his clients achieve this enormous goal of finding their dream home. He is always willing to go to bat for his clients to ensure they are getting the perfect space at the ideal price point. His energy is infectious and lightens up the often stressful process of buying and selling real estate.

Matt often works with young families and first or second-time homebuyers. Through his life experiences, Matt has also created an extensive network in the music and sports industry, which has given him the ability to work with pro skaters. Whether you’re a big name in the sports industry or simply searching for the first home for your growing family, you will receive the same attention to detail and positive experience from Matt.

Matt has achieved some very remarkable and unique things. He placed a song for Rihanna, which now has over 772 million streams on Spotify alone. He’s also worked with talent and brands, including Snoop Dogg, Steve Aoki, Beats By Dre, Michael Phelps, and others. Matt’s wealth of knowledge and background with high-end clients has helped him become a successful real estate agent. His connection with his clients certainly doesn’t end when the transaction does.

When Matt’s not finding his clients the best deal or working with celebrities, he enjoys being active in his community. He loves spending time with his wife Kristine and an incredible pup named Chamomile. They all enjoy an active lifestyle, from skateboarding to running to dog park excursions.
