Clients are saying:
"Matt has been very helpful in making this buying and selling process as smooth as possible. He is always a phone call or text away, very knowledgeable, patient, and easy to talk to. We would highly recommend him to friends and family."
"We had a great experience buying a home. We started looking at properties in December and closed on a house in March. Matt was willing to go out with us every weekend and even if we wanted to see a new listing after work on a weekday he was available. When we finally found the home we wanted we were on our way out of town for 10 days. Matt went above and beyond by helping us through the process while we were out of town and in a different time zone. He delivered the earnest check and met with the inspector when we weren’t in town to do so.
Our house was sold “as is” so there wasn’t any room for negotiation on the price. We were also surprised when we recently received a housewarming gift from Matt!"
"Matt was a very reliable and knowledgeable realtor for us! He encouraged us to up the listing price from what we originally thought and we accepted an offer at 98% of list price the first weekend our house was on the market! We are grateful for his expertise in picking that top
dollar amount! Matt was always quick to respond to our questions and requests throughout our sale. I would highly recommend Matt to anyone looking for a realtor!"
"We worked with Matt when purchasing our first home! He was great to work with - patient, responsive and quick to action. He showed us a home we were interested in at a moments' notice and gathered comparable homes to help us make a educated decision. When we decided to place an offer on our house, he worked through his family vacation to get it done for us. Super helpful and patient. Definitely recommend."
"Matt was excellent every step of the way through the condo-purchasing process. One thing I was particularly impressed by was his responsiveness: he was available for contact pretty much at all hours every day. He was present (electronically) for negotiations with the seller long into the night, and was available for impromptu tours of units. My wife and I also appreciated his honesty. He was upfront about the arrangement that both brokers get a commission based on the sale price of the unit. Regardless of financial incentive, he helped us negotiate the price down and gave good advice every step of the way."
