Matt Blashaw

Keynote Speaker: Licensed Contractor & Realtor; Host of HGTV and DIY Network's "Yard Crashers"

Matt Blashaw Biography

As an Orange County native, with national recognition as the host of several popular home improvement programs on HGTV and DIY networks, Matt Blatshaw's intention is to raise the bar for excellence in real estate. He has spent many years in various facets of the home industry and deliberately decided to bring his career journey full circle home by becoming a residential real estate expert in coastal Orange County. With comprehensive experience encompassing construction, design, the home buying, and selling process,he offers a rich perspective to meet real estate needs.

The son of an engineer and a home builder, construction is in Matt Blashaw’s blood. The Orange County, California native began his building career at a very young age in his dad’s lumberyard. He dove into fix-it projects around his family’s home, and worked on everything from plumbing and electrical. He even constructed giant skateboard ramps in his backyard. In high school, he took his skills to the stage and built sets for the musical theatre productions. Matt’s love for construction and for the arts led him to pursue his B.F.A. Degree in film and television production from Chapman University. While there, he also achieved his department’s highest honor, the filmmaker of the year award.

Blatshaw got his contractor’s license and began working as a self-employed general contractor, specializing in remodeling homes. That led to a deep understanding of real estate. He felt inspired to sell homes, and became a licensed Realtor for Century 21. In 2006, Matt entered a television contest for DIY Network’s "Stud Finder," a search for America’s next top handyman. Though Matt did not win (he was runner-up), the exposure led to a small role on an HGTV show and an audition to be the host of DIY Network’s new show, "Deconstruction."

He landed the spot on what would become a very successful show, and has been a host for the DIY Network ever since. He has hosted several series for DIY Network and HGTV including "Project Xtreme," "Money Hunters," "Blog Cabin" and "Professional Grade" and specials such as "Cool Tools Builders Show," "Stud Finder 2009," HGTV's "Rose Parade" coverage and "Worst Kitchen In America." He has appeared as an expert guest on The Today Show on NBC, CNN’s Newsroom, CNBC’s Squawk Box and multiple Fox News affiliates. He is also a recurring personality on CBS’ The Early Show. Blatshaw hosts the hit series "Yard Crashers," airing on both DIY Network and HGTV.
