Originally from Morgantown, WV, Matt first fell in love with the Carolinas while visiting as a child. He always dreamed of living in Charleston and his acceptance to Charleston School of Law gave him the opportunity to move away from his hometown and begin a life in beautiful and historic Charleston. While in law school, Matt became interested in Property Law and Contracts Law and decided to focus his attention on building his real estate career.
Matt is incredibly driven and enjoys helping clients navigate the intricacies of the buying and selling process. He is ambitious with great attention to detail and his goal for his clients is to make it a seamless, enjoyable, and memorable experience.
In his free time, Matt enjoys watching sports of nearly all types, playing golf at the many courses in the Charleston area, cooking, eating at the incredible local restaurants, photography, and relaxing near Pitt St. Bridge, Shem Creek, and Sullivan’s Island.

PRAISE FOR MATT
“I had the extreme pleasure of working with Matt in finding my dream condo at the beach. He went above and beyond in helping me in every way and was very knowledgeable and thorough and exceptional in every way. I highly recommend him if you’re looking to buy or sell!” --Judy Lawson
"We would like to thank Matt Petitte for all the help in finding our beautiful home. He was professional in our client/agent relationship. He was also very knowledgeable when we needed information about the buying process. Matt went over and above, making sure we got our dream home. We also have our future agent, if needed, as well as a new friend, in Matt." --Merete & Tammy Enbusk
"The Cassina group team of Garrett Rust and Matt Petitte performed above and beyond our expectations in selling our home in less than a day for top dollar. We had multiple offers above an asking price that was already at the top of our neighborhood's selling price point. They communicated with us on every aspect of the selling process greatly and we knew everything that was going on from start to finish. Going with the Cassina group was the best decision my family could have made and it's impact will be beneficial to us for years to come. If you are wanting to put your home on the market, the Cassina group should be the first place to look for professional real estate agents who work tirelessly to get your house sold." --Kenny Simmons
"I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate all of the work you did in helping me find the perfect place in Mount Pleasant. You listened to all of my requirements and only through your diligence of checking the availability of properties on a daily basis, were you able to find the property to fit all my needs. I consider you a friend and will be happy to recommend you to anyone searching for property in the Charleston area. Thank you again..." --Judy Alexander
"Matt Petitte was an absolute delight to work with. He listened to all my needs and found me the perfect place! Would highly recommend!" --Judy Alexander
"Matt Petitte with the Cassina Group was an absolute blessing. Matt and I started the house hunt in Mount Pleasant SC over a year ago. At the beginning we walked multiple properties including vacant lots to try and find the perfect place. Matt went above and beyond every step of the way (calling sellers, enquiring about protected lands, finding builders etc). Time went by and I received a custom email weekly with various homes which fit the bill, but unfortunately none of them were "the one". One morning Matt sent me an email of a home that wasn't even listed. Needless to say it was perfect and checked every. box. This is when Matt really got to work.. He was always available at all hours of the day. He quickly responded to to emails, calls, and texts. We ended up in a bidding war and given this was my first home purchase he made sure everything was in order. I can never be more thankful for everything Matt did. He got me my dream home!" --Nicolas Mazal
"Agent Matt Petitte is thorough, knowledgeable, easy to relate to, and will help to make your home buying process easy. He immediately makes you feel at home in your new community. He helped me to find the perfect home/condo by the end of my first day of viewing,.. You will enjoy working with Matt, as he provides excellent services throughout every step of the process." --B Mair
"Matt was extremely dedicated and patient when it came to helping me buy my home. Matt was already a few steps ahead of the game with regards to finding, negotiating and closing the deal. Any question I had, Matt would either know the answer or could find it out in a timely manner. When it comes to being on time, patient and getting the job done, I would say Matt is the guy who is good at these traits and can consistently deliver the sale. Home buying and selling could very easily be a stressful situation if one does not have the right realtor, especially in this market. I will most definitely use Matt again for buying my next home." --Harrison Baker
"My Cassina Group realtor, Matt Petitte, worked diligently to help me find my new home. I appreciate Matt’s honesty and integrity. He made the closing process simple and painless." --Tanya Wofford
"I highly recommend Matt Petitte for your real estate needs. He was with us every step of the way in purchasing our new home. Matt made the process as smooth as possible and ensured all the i’s were dotted and t’s crossed. This was only our second home purchase, so we relied on his expertise and that of the Cassina Group to make sure we got everything right. We were looking for a home that fit the needs of our family, and Matt helped make that dream possible!" --Haley and Kenny Vaden
"Working with Matt to help my son purchase his first home was such a wonderful experience. Matt is kind-hearted and truly wants the best for his clients. It took some time in this crazy market but with his patience and support my son was able to find his home. Matt is informative and knowledgeable and very flexible with his schedule. If I ever move to Charleston I will definitely be calling on Matt." --Robin Kizer
"Matt was able to effectively communicate every detail with us, he stayed on top of all legal documents and paperwork to make sure we were protected throughout the process, and ALWAYS went above and beyond in helping us with any solutions to problems that arose. Matt was truly a fantastic realtor to work with...[we] cannot recommend Matt Petitte with The Cassina Group enough!"--Carly Hitchens
"There are nothing but good things to say about working with Matt on my first home purchase. I moved almost 700 miles from Pennsylvania so I wasn’t able to view potential homes myself. He was patient and always fast to respond any time I reached out. In the beginning Matt provided a lot of great options from the areas I was looking. Once I found a place I was interested in he was always willing to do a video walk through usually on short notice. He was a great help with insurance and inspections as well. I have family here and he also met with them to do a final walk through which was nice. After settling on a place he was extremely helpful throughout the closing process. Couldn’t ask for a better realtor and I’m very happy with my new home in North Charleston.” –Trevor Barillaro
"Thanks to Matt Petitte, we found our dream home in Summerville, SC. Matt jumped on the listing immediately which was exactly the place we wanted. Matt made the transaction so easy; his knowledge and experience were exceptional. Thanks Matt and Cassina! We are so happy!" --John and Janet Petitte
"Matt was wonderful to work with! We moved from Texas to South Carolina and, originally, I had another realtor. We found that she was not responsive with answering questions. I then went to the Cassina Group web page. I just had a great feeling about Matt’s bio and we went with it. I’m so glad I did! He was not only responsive, he was knowledgeable and very patient. We ended up with a new build, which took awhile to complete. I am very pleased with the service he provided and would be happy to use him again." --Marie Black
"Matt Petitte is a good guy and a great realtor. His integrity shines above the high bar set by his diligence. Matt helped me navigate a rather complicated transaction and his persistence allowed me to move forward with confidence. He returns every call, text, and email, day or night, and treats all with respect. An affable individual and hard-working professional, he deserves the highest praise." – Stephanie Anthony
