Matt Ackland joined the NTB team at Washington Fine Properties following a long career in broadcast journalism. You may recognize Matt following his sixteen years working as a reporter and anchor at WTTG-TV in Washington, DC.  Matt’s work has taken him all over the DC metropolitan area. He’s learned what makes each neighborhood special and has gotten to know so many of the people living in those communities.

A proud DC resident, Matt has previously lived in the Kalorama, Dupont Circle, and Mount Vernon Square neighborhoods  He’s currently living in the Edgewood neighborhood, just blocks from Catholic University.

Matt began his career in television at WCJB in Gainesville, Florida while at the University of Florida. From there he moved south to Naples, Florida where he worked as the Collier County Bureau Chief at WZVN/WBBH-TV.  Matt left the sunshine of Florida to take a reporting position at the highly respected television station, WTMJ-TV in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In Milwaukee, Matt covered a wide range of stories, including local and national politics. Matt conducted one-on-one interviews with then, Secretary of State Madeline Albright and Vice President Al Gore. In 2002, Matt accepted a job at WTTG here in Washington, DC. It was a dream come true to work in the nation’s capital. Matt will never forget the day he first stood in front of the White House giving live reports. Most recently Matt served as the weekend evening anchor and District of Columbia reporter.

From 2014-2017 Matt was nominated, Best Local TV Personality, for the Washington Blade’s, Best of Gay DC edition. He’s received two Chesapeake AP Broadcasters Association Awards and the Edward R Murrow Award for his coverage of a major downtown fire in Annapolis in 2006.

Matt is eager to help you find a home that is perfect for you or help sell the one you’re currently in.

“As a journalist, Matt built an enviable reputation through hard work, attention to his craft, and integrity.  In the hypercompetitive world of television reporting, the temptation exists to cut corners or twist narratives for short-term gain.  In more than a decade covering District politics, Matt’s character and honesty were never questioned. The skills, which made Matt a top tier journalist, make him an excellent addition to Nancy’s distinguished team of professionals.”
