Meet Matt Ackland


“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.”

David Catania, District of Columbia Council 19

“I highly recommend working with Matt. He was very flexible and accommodating of my schedule in terms of setting up time to see places. He spent multiple days just driving from place to place that I wanted to see. The other great thing about working with Matt was that it took him very little time to get an understanding of my taste and he was able to recommend apartments that he knew would work with my preferences. He was never pushy and never rushed me. Because of him, I am now living in my dream apartment that checked every box I provided to him.”

“From start to closing, Matt was attentive, thorough and shared valuable insight at every step. He was prompt when responding to my questions (at any time of the day) and was gracious when answering my dumber questions. I can’t overstate how grateful I am to have worked with him and the other folks at WFP. I look forward to sharing my experience with Matt and WFP to everyone around me.”

“We have worked with Matt Ackland two times in 2019, one purchase and one sale. Both times Matt was quick to respond, very thorough, and knowledgeable on all aspects of the transactions. Buying or selling real estate can be very stressful, Matt helps to move everything along in a calm easy-going manner. We wouldn’t hesitate to use or recommend him.”
