Matthew Hornsby

Real Estate Agent

I am originally from Ft Thomas, Kentucky. I have an Associate’s Degree in psychology and a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice. I was an active duty helicopter pilot in the US Marines for 14 years. I medically retired at the rank of Major in 2011. I did three tours of duty in Iraq, one tour of peacekeeping operations in Haiti and got to spend time in 12 other countries during my time in the Marines. I worked at the Onslow Country Sheriff’s Department for about a year after leaving the Marines but had to leave due to continuing medical issues.
I have been doing real estate investing for 10 years and I am now a full time real estate agent. I have a commercial pilot’s license for airplanes and helicopter and in my spare time I fly for a charity called ‘Pilots and Paws’ that rescues animals from overcrowded shelters. I also work with therapy dogs and take them on visits to various locations in the local community.
I am married with one son, my wife and I live near Southwest Plantation with four rescued dogs and three rescue cats. I am very excited to be a part of the Castro Real Estate team.
