"Matt was an absolutely wonderful real estate agent. When buying my first home, he was exactly what I needed. He has tremendous knowledge of the Chicago area and the buying/selling process. He fought for me throughout each step of the process and assisted with so many things post close. Matt went above and beyond his job responsibilities to make sure I was satisfied and I would strongly recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home!"



"I worked with Matt to purchase a multi unit investment property (3-4 flat) for the past year. We saw a lot of properties and negotiated several offers (that later didn’t pass inspection) until we found the perfect property in Jefferson Park. Matt was extremely responsive, patient and helpful in making decisions (including a couple difficult ones to pull back from an opportunity that no linger made economic sense with repairs required upon inspection). Matt was truely a pleasure to work. His tireless efforts to help me evaluate and analyze properties were beyond what I have seen other realtors provide. I would highly recommend Matt for any property purchase."



"Matt is the BEST and we have worked with him when buying and selling a place. There is no one that will work harder for you. He is available all the time and will make sure that when selling he is there for showings. He is not pushy but also won’t let you get “taken”. Honestly, I could not say anything negative about him. If I could scream it to the rooftops I would....Matt is saved in my phone as Mast the amazing! He got us a property that was off market with his negotiating. You have found the best here and good luck!"



"Matt was a fantastic realtor for myself and my husband and our first home purchase! He was incredibly real, incredibly responsive, and incredibly knowledgeable. He was very flexible with our changing criteria and our viewing schedule. He even got another agent involved to assist in the surgeon whenever he wasn’t available in person. He made us feel like his only clients with the amount of attention we received (which I know wasn’t the truth).
During the closing process Matt also continue to fight for us to make sure we were being taken advantage of. He got us more than what we were expecting during negotiations after we were ready to except their terms.
Throughout the process he started to feel less like a realtor and more like a very informed friend which made it a very fun and comfortable process overall.
I would highly recommend him to anyone else looking to either buy or sell and will keep them in mind for whatever our real estate future brings."



"We moved from Naperville to downtown Chicago, knowing very little about the different parts of the city. Matt made the decision process very easy as he was quickly about to learn our needs and align then with a perfect fit for both neighborhood and home selection. I highly recommend Matt!!!"



"Matt is knowledgeable, quick to respond, and communicates effectively."



"Matt was absolutely phenomenal from the first day we started looking until the day we closed. He made the experience (which was our first home buying experience) a smooth and simple process. He helped explain everything in a digestible way as home buying, especially the first time, can be a daunting process. We consider ourselves lucky to have had Matt to help in this entire process and would absolutely recommend him to everyone and anyone! Thank you Matt!!"



"As a new resident to Chicago, Matt was quick to make me feel comfortable during my condo search. He was always easy to contact, efficient and went out of his way to do things like pay for my parking spot while we were viewing a place. He would book showings the same day I requested them. I would recommend Matt to any of my friends and family looking to move in and around the city. I am very pleased with my new home and he made the long process fun and exciting."



"Matthew is an incredible agent and has been a great resource to me for many years now. The first few times we worked together, he helped me find apartments while I was renting in Chicago. Each time, we ended up signing a lease on an apartment that exceeded all expectations. After getting married, my wife and I decided it was time to look for a house in the suburbs and knew that Matthew would be an incredible resource. I went into the process very close-minded view of where I wanted to live and what to expect. Matthew really helped me expand my views and because of this, we ended up finding the perfect home...a new construction property (something I had not previously considered). Matthew really has a tireless work ethic. He answered every time I called him, responded to emails promptly and adjusted his personal and professional schedules in order to be there for us when we needed him for meetings, walk-throughs, closing, etc. With all of his knowledge and experience, Matthew really made building a new house an easy process and took a lot of stress out of the equation. Without a doubt, I would recommend everyone I know (and those I don't) to work with Matthew when considering renting, buying or building a home!!"



"This is the third time I've worked with Matt, and the first time it was for a purchase. Matt is a true advocate for his clients, working tirelessly to get the best outcomes. He's always reachable quickly, and provided great recommendations for lawyers, inspectors, etc. to work with. It's clear that every home-buying experience is unique and always comes with unexpected challenges and hitches along the way; unavoidable parts of the process. With Matt we always felt we had a trusted adviser to work through these items with, and never felt lost or rudderless. I can't recommend Matt enough and hope to work with him again on the future when the next phase in my homeowner-story happens."



"Matthew was amazing! My house was listed and sold within 10 wks. He made suggestions for a quicker sale and everything worked. For anyone that needs a realtor Matthew is your man. Thank you so much!"



"We were referred to Matt a year or so ago for our rental and were very impressed with his knowledge of Chicago living and patience with us to find the perfect place even though we were just renting. Now that it was time to buy, Matt really went above and beyond to make sure my husband and I were happy with our purchase (and we are extremely happy!). Matt will always make sure he has time for you and will work around your schedule. He always is availabe to answer any questions you have. He understands your home desires and sends you a vast selection of properties that fit the mold. Yes, it is most important that we are extremely happy with the final result! But Matt makes the whole process fun! You can tell that he really loves his job and helping people find happiness!! We would definitely recommend him to friends and family going through buying or even renting a home in the Chicago area."



"Matt was awesome in helping us find our first home. He's got an immense knowledge of the city, is honest and always protected our interests throughout the whole process. I will be recommending him to everyone looking for a home!"



"It was an absolute pleasure working with Matt. I was very impressed with him not only because of how quickly he lined up showings of places that matched exactly what I was looking for, but also because he knows his market so well. He was able to give great insight and advice with full honesty and transparency. He never really seemed to be "off the clock" and I very much appreciated how reachable and proactive he was. He made the entire process seamless and I would recommend him to anyone."



"This is our second time working with Matt and he is fantastic!

He is very knowledgeable, thoughtful, honest and responds to you quickly.

Matt cares about what he does and about his clients. When the time comes to find a property again, he will be who we choose time and time again. He is simply the best."



"Matthew was super nice and easy to work with. He made the experience of looking for potential tenants quick and painless! I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an agent and will use his services again in the future."



"Matt is amazing! I told him exactly what I was searching for and he was very complaint and fast. He made the entire process very personal and effortless! He even went the extra mile and went to my future apartment to get EXACT measurements so that I could easily pick out furniture. All in all, Matt made my experience wonderful!"



"Matt was very determined to get this deal closed and did everything in his power to get it to the finish line! Thank Matt. Good luck with the baby!"



"Matt was the absolute best thing that could have happened to us during our apartment hunt. We wandered into the @properties office simply wondering if we could ask some questions, and then he came around the corner and offered to help us through the entire search. He was patient with us, explaining everything to make sure we understood exactly how the process worked. Being a group of female fresh graduates, we were very unsure of where to look based on safety, and he took the liberty of narrowing our search for us so we were always close to a train stop, and never close to questionable parts of the city. Matt exceeded all expectations, working all hours of the night to help us find a perfect apartment within 3 days of meeting him, as we had a fairly strict time constraint. We even showed him a property we would be interested in looking at (which was not listed with his company), and when we asked him about it, he let us know that he could not set up the tour as a broker, but that he would happily accompany us on the tour to make sure all the right questions were asked. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for property in the Chicago area. He is incredible at what he does and just generally a fantastic person. Matt is so invested in his clients and dedicates all of his time and energy to helping people find what they are looking for. It is incredibly refreshing to work with someone like Matt; it's the sort of relationship that gives you faith that genuine people are still out there and not everyone is looking to take advantage of you. I cannot say enough about how great our experience was. Bottom line - if you are looking for property in Chicago, Matt is your guy."



"Matt was a lifesaver to myself and my two roommates in finding the perfect Chicago apartment post-grad. As recent college graduates we did not know much about the rental process outside of our college towns, and Matt guided us through the process and worked incredibly hard to get us the apartment that we fell in love with. My experience was a bit different, as I was not able to make it to Chicago to meet Matt in person and tour units with him and the other girls. However, Matt made sure it include me on all communications and went above and beyond to make sure I was making an informed decision as much as the others girls were. We are extremely grateful to Matt for all his help, and would recommend him without hesitation!"



"My roommates and I are moving to the city for the first time, and stumbled into your Lincoln Park office and asked if an associate was available to help us and Matt volunteered. From the minute we sat with him, it was such an awesome experience. He was transparent, honest, and wasn"



"Matt is the best real estate broker I have worked with, and I've worked with a number of them personally and in business. He is exceptionally detailed and on top of every aspect of the transaction, including assistance afterward with recommendations and appointments for contractors. He is extremely customer focused but it honest and realistic rather than telling you what you want to hear. Aside from his knowledge of the market and of transactional details, he is warm and a pleasure to be with. I could not recommend him more highly."



"Matt has been so great with helping me find both an apartment to rent and to buy. He is always available, responds to texts immediately, and is very fast with booking showings. I also very much appreciated his honesty when it came to showings and prices. I will continue to recommend him to my friends and family!"



"Matt really listened to my roommate and I throughout the apartment hunting process. He made sure not to waste our time going to properties that he knew we would not like or that were out of the specific neighborhoods we requested. Matt also never pushed us to go for one apartment or another. In fact, he always gave us his honest opinion, even if that meant us going with an apartment that gave him a lower cut. We ended up getting the most beautiful apartment that met all of our needs. This agent has tons of experience in all ranges of income level, so I highly recommend Matt to anyone looking to move to Chicago!"



"Matt was great! He was very quick to respond to emails and texts. He was even able to setup showings the day we requested them. He did a great job of taking feedback we gave on particular properties and adjusting the apartments he showed us to fit our specifications. I would definitely recommend Matt - we ended up with an apartment we really liked!"



"I was introduced to Matt after attempting to work with a number of realtors. I felt the confidence that Matt prioritized my needs after our initial conversation, but it just kept getting better as we embarked on a search for a home for my family. For every property I expressed interest about Matt did thorough research and analysis on comps, construction details, management, etc. Not only did Matt answer each question I had expediently, he brought to my attention nuances I wouldn’t have considered. The highlight was that Matt would always be brutally honest on whether a property of interest was priced correctly. With Matt’s help we ended up purchasing a home that’s ideal for my family at a cost that matches its value. I couldn’t thank Matt enough. I feel like I’ll live in this home forever but if I ever decide to move, Matt is the only realtor I’d consider calling!"



"I got Matt’s name from a friend and reached out to him about a year ago. Was not even ready to use him but he was very helpful and willing to answer all of my questions. I hired him and would recommend him to anyone!!"



"This is the third time I've worked with Matt, and the first time it was for a purchase. Matt is a true advocate for his clients, working tirelessly to get the best outcomes. He's always reachable quickly, and provided great recommendations for lawyers, inspectors, etc. to work with.

With Matt we always felt we had a trusted adviser to work through these items with, and never felt lost or rudderless. I can't recommend Matt enough and hope to work with him again on the future when the next phase in my homeowner-story happens."



"Matt has been a great realtor for the past 4 months! He has been patient, informative, and flexible with my schedule. He is always available through text, email, phone or in person. His intensive knowledge of Chicago has helped me learn more about the neighborhoods and specify exactly what I want and where. He is young, passionate, honest and relatable. He has been very helpful throughout my search, and always thinks of creative ways to help me get closer to my dream condo. He also has a large range of networks in Chicago to help you find not only the perfect home, but perfect lender, lawyer, and anything else you may need for your dream home! I've had a great experience so far and have full faith that Matt will help me find my dream condo. I highly recommend Matt!"



"This past summer my job moved me to Chicago, and I had about a two week time frame to find a place. It was hectic and stressful, but Matt made the process MUCH easier. He was on top of it, always sending me new listings to look at it. When I came to Chicago to visit (and hopefully find my place) we found it the first day we looked! He was kind, helpful, and most importantly very responsive as I had a limited amount of time. Matt is great to work with and I highly recommend him!"



"Matt helped me out tremendously when looking to rent an apartment in Chicago, without ever have been there personally. I fly in, he met me, and took me around to multiple places before I decided on the one. He was super helpful in the entire process and I could not be happier with the end result! Highly recommended."



"Matthew is a consummate professional who has only his clients’ interests in mind; he continually puts his best foot forward to help deliver the best results. He is easily accessible to talk with on the phone as well as to meet in person to view properties. I hand out his contact info in my office and will keep his phone number for my next place. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED"



"Matt is very knowledgeable of the market and resturants, and outings in Chicago. He is a pleasure to talk to and is very professional. I would trust him with my housing and my dog (since he dog sits too- he does it all!) If you want someone that will have your best interests in mind and will negotiate very well on your behalf, you want to work with Matt."


"Working with Matt was so easy, efficient and enjoyable. He is incredibly responsive which was very important to us and made the whole process of finding a new home seamless. I would plan to recommend working with Matt to any of my friends and family."



"It was a pleasure working with Matt; his knowledge of the area and understanding of what I was looking for made the process that much easier. With the amount of SPAM flooding through craigslist these days, it's nice to have a a real person to find some legitimate apartments to look at, that won't turn out to be a waste of your time."



"Matt helped my friend and I find an apartment to rent in Chicago. When we met Matt we were already on somewhat of a time crunch to find a place because the other people before us weren't very helpful. However, Matt helped us more than we could have ever imagined. Unlike the other agency that tried helping us, Matt actually listened to what we were interested in and what our budget was, and then came up with a ton of options for us. We would see atleast 5 places every time we went out looking with him, and he was very flexible with times and days when it came to scheduling. While Matt was helping us I felt that he made it his personal mission to find us our perfect place. He kept in constant contact with us 24/7, always answering all of our questions or just filling us in on what was going on. He also always had our best interest in mind. He didn't try to force any places onto us and he was always negotiating lower prices for us, even when we hadn't asked him to."



"Matt is the best!! He's patient and never steers you in the wrong. Matt is very knowledgeable about many locations and buildings in the city. He is excellent at working around your schedule for showings! He will always be my go to realtor and I highly recommend him to everyone! He will make it his goal to find you your perfect home like he did for me!"



"I am in the process of relocating to Chicago and searching for a rental property. I don't how I could do this without his help, he is patient, knowledgeable and honest. I recommend him highly to anyone searching in the Chicago area."



"My daughter was moving to the Chicago area and we were uncertain about neighborhoods and areas where she would be safe. Matthew really helped guide us to neighborhoods that not only were safe and she was surrounded by her contemporaries, but was also near her needed transportation to her new job.
Great work!"



"In my search for my first apartment in Chicago, I worked with Matt, who was awesome to work with. My 3 roommates and myself were looking for a 4 bedroom apartment in the Lakeview and LP areas. From the very beginning, he was very attentive to what our wants and needs with our future apartment were. He was able to collect many potential places and set up consecutive showings, saving a lot of time for us. Each place that we saw had all of the amenities we required, and most included the extra stuff we preferred to have. Every time we showed to an apartment for a showing, he was already there, eager to show us around. After seeing about 5 or 6 places, we came to an agreement on a huge 5 BR, 3 Bath (for only 4 guys), at a great price. Thanks to Matt we were able to find a place we really enjoy and in a great neighborhood."



"Matt was amazing in helping my husband and I find a place. He was so approachable and knowledgeable and did whatever he could to make sure we were happy. I would definitely recommend Matt to my family and friends and look forward to working with him again."



"Matt is extremely knowledgable on the Chicago-land area. He was able to provide pros and cons for living in each building and neighborhood. Matt listened to all of our requests and showed us apartments based on those requests only. He was very proactive in finding us places.

We did not rent the property that Matt showed us because we decided to sublease from another friend. The timing just so happened to work out for my roommate and I."



"Matt was extremely helpful in finding an apartment for me and my boyfriend. He gave us a wide range of options to look at and was very flexible with scheduling appointments for showings. We ultimately found an apartment that we love and Matt helped with negotiating a better rate for us! I would definitely recommend using him."



"Matthew skilfully and efficiently managed the sales process for our investment single family home. Matt overdelivers on what he promises and his pricing for our house was perfect. We can only recommend having Matt on your side of the transaction."



"My wife and I could not have learned, experienced and found what we needed without Matt. Matt had patience with us, showed us everything we asked for and then guided us in the right direction with a calm and knowledgeable hand. Matt knew about local schools, transportation in the area, shopping, restaurants, neighborhoods, cities and just about anything we asked. Matt was knowledgeable and resourceful, he provided options for lawyers, home inspectors, painters, interior designers, etc...but never pushed or sold them. There was never a bad time for a question, request or too many showings. From beginning to end Matt was a trusted and honest partner to me and my wife. We couldn't be happier with our home."


"Matt is a consummate professional. He knows the market incredibly well, is exceptionally personable and achieves the results his clients are looking for. I would recommend Matt to everyone I know!"


"Working with Matt during the purchase of my first home was an amazing experience. From the first time, we got in contact, to him explaining how the process would work, to closing on the property and everything in-between was pain-free. Matt answered my calls day and/or night to answer any questions. If it was something he could not answer he had a follow up in a very prompt manner. I would recommend any family, friends, or strangers to work with Matt during a home buying experience. He would be the first and only person I would contact if I ever need to buy or sell."



"This is our second time working with Matt and he is fantastic!

He is very knowledgeable, thoughtful, honest and responds to you quickly.

Matt cares about what he does and about his clients. When the time comes to find a property again, he will be who we choose time and time again. He is simply the best."



"Matt, did an awesome job! We have worked with him on several listings, and every time he was able to bring a tremendous amount of value to the table. He is very knowledgeable, timely, communicative and thorough. One of our listings had extremely difficult challenges, and he handled some very delicate situations with amazing sensibility. We have hired him in the past; and will hire him again. We highly recommend working with Matt."

"Mathew, thanks so much for all of your help and hard work. I️ appreciate I️t. You really know your stuff!!

When I’m ready to buy again, and if I️t is in Chicago, I’d be glad to work with you.

Thanks again."


"I never could have imagined how smooth and easy the home buying process could be before my wife and I began working with Matthew. He was absolutely the best! He is a wealth of knowledge for the first-time homebuyer and was fully dedicated to helping us find the right home for our needs. Matthew was dilligent, organized, and passionate throughout the entire process. We could not have been in better hands."


"Matthew Neistat was extremely professional, hard working , knew the market well and was a complete pleasure to work with. I knew from the first day that he would do an excellent job! I would recommend Matrhew to anyone !"


"Matt Neistat was fantastic-knowledgable, hard working, and a complete pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a home."


"I've been working with Matthew for years now, buying, selling, and leasing. Matthew has been patient and helpful when it comes to the long drawn out process of researching properties, which is my favorite part. He always has useful advice to impart, and will be honest if he thinks a property is problematic. He'd rather kill a deal than see someone get mired into a money pit, if that tells you anything about his personality. On the sell/lease side, I have always been proud of my listings, knowing they look and show exceptionally well. This is in no small part due to Matthew's network and personal efforts, to make sure everything is visually uniform and inviting, and photographed by his favorite pro's."



"It was an absolute pleasure working with Matt. I was very impressed with him not only because of how quickly he lined up showings of places that matched exactly what I was looking for, but also because he knows his market so well. He was able to give great insight and advice with full honesty and transparency. He never really seemed to be "off the clock" and I very much appreciated how reachable and proactive he was. He made the entire process seamless and I would recommend him to anyone."



"Matt is extremely knowledgeable and was very helpful in helping find a good apartment that fit our needs. He always answered any questions we had in a timely manner. He made the entire process very simple and stress-free. I would recommend anyone who is looking for a realtor in Chicago to use Matt Neistat."



"Matt was very knowledgeable and helpful in our search. We were satisfied to find an apartment after one day of tours."



"Extremely easy to communicate with. Very helpful, understanding, and honest."


"There are just not adequate words to describe my respect, appreciation, and admiration for Matthew. He is absolutely everything you would want in a broker, but more importantly in a friend. Matt helped my parents and I find an incredible and affordable one-bedroom in River North for me to live in throughout graduate school. I just moved to Chicago from Boston and knew relatively NOTHING about the city and Matt took the time to get to know me and my family, and everything about what we were looking for. He was transparent, patient, respectful, appropriate, and kind throughout the entire process. Matt know everything!!! I surely could not have gone through this process without him."



"Matt was awesome in helping us find our first home. He's got an immense knowledge of the city, is honest and always protected our interests throughout the whole process. I will be recommending him to everyone looking for a home!"


"Fantastic! Matthew impressed a group of seasoned, grizzly veterans. EVERYONE who came in contact with him (the lender, the lawyers, the building reps, the inspector, the appraiser) asked who this guy was and commented how impressive he was. Not often (or ever) seen with a broker! I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend Matthew. Great job! Thank you!"


"Matt has helped me throughout the past four years with multiple properties. He exudes professionalism and integrity and always goes above and beyond for his clients. I always recommend Matt to my colleagues and friends, and will continue doing so."


"Working with Matt was nothing short of a pleasure! Never have I met someone who was so invested in making sure that I ended up happy, and that the process was as easy and stress free as possible. He asked a lot of questions to make sure that the properties I looked at met my needs and we didn't waste any time. In fact, he had even guessed that the building I ended up in would be my favorite based on my preferences, but still made sure that I saw lots of other properties just so I could be sure that I was making the right choice.What I appreciated most was that he never told me it wasn't possible to find what I was looking for in a certain area within my budget, he worked to find a way to make it happen. He never gave up, and because he knew what my needs were, he took it upon himself to research whether or not certain places met those needs ahead of time.He made me feel like I was the only customer he had! It was crazy how on top of everything he was...I have no idea how he does it. He always made himself available and answered any question I had so thoroughly and quickly. He never seemed annoyed or frustrated with me, or like there was something bigger or better he could be doing. He was incredibly personable and I feel like he genuinely cared about me as a person rather than just cared about me finding a place.Matt took the extra time to send recaps afterwards when we looked at several places within a day, and would even offer up the opportunity to go back and see any of them since he knew this was an important decision for me. Because he was so genuinely invested in helping me find a place I loved, I never got a sense that going back to a place or seeing what else was available was putting him out in any way. He always did it with a smile and great attitude. He also never made me feel like I had to select one of his listings or that I would have wasted his time if I didn't, which was a huge relief. He simply just wanted to make sure I was in the best place for me, and that meant the world to me!He was also incredibly knowledgeable about each and every place we went to see, even if it was one he hadn't been to before. He was up to speed on how certain things compared to other buildings in the area and you could tell he does his research...leaving me feeling much more confident and comfortable making a decision.When I finally selected a place, he walked me through the process thoroughly and went out of his way to ensure that it was as simple for me as possible. He even came to pick up the checks from my office so I didn't have to go out of my way to do it, which was a huge help and one less thing I had to worry about.Matt was genuinely invested in helping me, no matter what it took. Despite not knowing him at all before this process, I felt like I was working with a trusted friend who wouldn't quit until I was happy and got the best outcome possible. Working with Matt was so pleasant because I felt like I was not just "another client," but truly like I was a person whose needs mattered and he would put in every effort to understand them and make sure they were met. It's rare to find someone like Matt, and I'm already spreading the word about how incredible he was to work with to all of my friends and family!"


"Matt did a fantastic job. Suggested and then quarterbacked our remodel so we could get sell our place at a good price fast. Would highly recommend him."


"We were referred to Matt a year or so ago for our rental and were very impressed with his knowledge of Chicago living and patience with us to find the perfect place even though we were just renting. Now that it was time to buy, Matt really went above and beyond to make sure my husband and I were happy with our purchase (and we are extremely happy!). Matt will always make sure he has time for you and will work around your schedule. He always is availabe to answer any questions you have. He understands your home desires and sends you a vast selection of properties that fit the mold. Yes, it is most important that we are extremely happy with the final result! But Matt makes the whole process fun! You can tell that he really loves his job and helping people find happiness!! We would definitely recommend him to friends and family going through buying or even renting a home in the Chicago area."



"Matt assisted in my very first home purchase. He explained every step and was very professional. Great communication skills! Thanks for allYour help!"



"Matthew is an amazing realtor! He is able to advise the client throughout every step while maintaining great negotiating power. His professionalism enabled us to negotiate but he also protected our position of not giving in. I felt he truly understood our position, goals, and values while enabling our ability to buy our dream house as well as sell our current house for the profit we deserved."


"Matt is amazing! He truly looks out for your best interest and is honest with you about a property, whether it is the location, the building or the price. Matt is also very patient and will not try to rush you into making any decisions you are unsure of; he will take time out of his day to walk you through confusing documents if you are a first-time buyer. Matt will also make sure you are protected every single step of the way.I am a first-time buyer, and the process was seamless, on Matt. He is an extremely hands-on broker, and that is key. I have used him for commercial space, renting a condo, and finally, purchasing a home.I would highly recommend Matt to anyone and everyone I know!"


"Matthew was amazing! My house was listed and sold within 10 wks. He made suggestions for a quicker sale and everything worked. For anyone that needs a realtor Matthew is your man. Thank you so much!"


"We enjoyed working with Matthew. He was professional, considerate, understanding and went above and beyond caring for our needs. I would recommend him to anyone!"


"Matt is really great, through and through. He always managed to make himself consistently available for viewings. He listened to all of our questions and gave us informative and realistic answers that were never pushy. He's very down to earth and is really knowledgeable about the market and the city. I had a great experience working with Matt, and really enjoyed having him be part of this process with us."


"It's hard to imagine a more attentive, responsive, informative advocate for my interests than Matt. He patiently explained my options every step of the way, making sure I understood the future implications of each decision, so I could make well-informed judgements. When I needed to move quickly he was ready, and when I needed more time he stepped back. He earned my trust throughout the process, and facilitated a smooth closing, setting me up for success. It was clear his prime motivator was the well-being of his client. I'll be calling him in the future, and recommending him to family and friends."


"This is the third time I've worked with Matt, and the first time it was for a purchase. Matt is a true advocate for his clients, working tirelessly to get the best outcomes. He's always reachable quickly, and provided great recommendations for lawyers, inspectors, etc. to work with. It's clear that every home-buying experience is unique and always comes with unexpected challenges and hitches along the way; unavoidable parts of the process. With Matt we always felt we had a trusted adviser to work through these items with, and never felt lost or rudderless. I can't recommend Matt enough and hope to work with him again on the future when the next phase in my homeowner-story happens."


"Matthew is an incredible agent and has been a great resource to me for many years now. The first few times we worked together, he helped me find apartments while I was renting in Chicago. Each time, we ended up signing a lease on an apartment that exceeded all expectations. After getting married, my wife and I decided it was time to look for a house in the suburbs and knew that Matthew would be an incredible resource. I went into the process very close-minded view of where I wanted to live and what to expect. Matthew really helped me expand my views and because of this, we ended up finding the perfect home...a new construction property (something I had not previously considered). Matthew really has a tireless work ethic. He answered every time I called him, responded to emails promptly and adjusted his personal and professional schedules in order to be there for us when we needed him for meetings, walk-throughs, closing, etc. With all of his knowledge and experience, Matthew really made building a new house an easy process and took a lot of stress out of the equation. Without a doubt, I would recommend everyone I know (and those I don't) to work with Matthew when considering renting, buying or building a home!!"


"Matt was an excellent broker. He was extremely responsive to all of our questions and went above and beyond to ensure that we found a property that we liked. Even after we closed, he has helped us with things we need like finding repair men, etc. I would highly recommend Matt as a broker."



"I came to matt with a very fast deadline and very specific requirements for the apartment we were looking for. Not only did he go above and beyond to make sure we got exactly what we wanted, but he found us a beautiful apartment! within two days we signed a lease!"



"Matt showed drive and determination in finding a home for us in Buena Park. He quickly learned what we were looking for and didn't waste our time by showing us places that were too small or out of our price range. Matt stuck with us and helped us find a home that was right for us and negotiated a lower rent price with our new landlord. If you're looking for a broker that will get to know you and help you find your next home, look no further than Matt, and he'll find it for you."



"Matt was easy and exceptional to work with when finding a property. We are moving from out of state which can be stressful but thanks to Matt it was actually FUN. He has a great understanding of Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. We always felt taken care of by him and wouldn't recommend anyone else."


"As a new resident to Chicago, Matt was quick to make me feel comfortable during my condo search. He was always easy to contact, efficient and went out of his way to do things like pay for my parking spot while we were viewing a place. He would book showings the same day I requested them. I would recommend Matt to any of my friends and family looking to move in and around the city. I am very pleased with my new home and he made the long process fun and exciting."


"I've worked with a number of realtors previously, but Matt sets himself apart by going above and beyond to find you the perfect home. No matter what time of day or day of week, Matt has made himself available to help me throughout this process.I've recommended Matt to both colleagues and friends and look forward to working with him for many years to come."


"Matt was fantastic to work with. He was so knowledgeable and constantly available when we needed him. He made selling our property such an easy process and helped us out in so many ways. Matt goes above and beyond what we have experienced with other brokers in the past. I look forward to working with Matt again and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell. You will be beyond pleased at the level of service you will get."


"Matt was an amazing broker! He really listens to your needs and shows you what you want to see. He is also just an all-around friendly and nice person. He is always there to answer questions when you need him."



"Matt was great! From finding me many places to look to at, he was extremely helpful and followed up with me even after I had already signed a lease . Would definitely recommend !"


"Matthew is just AMAZING. He found us the perfect place!Being new to Chicago, I was grateful for his thoughtful, grounded counsel on neighborhoods, accessibility, etc. And given our rather last-minute apartment search, I particularly appreciated his patience, proactiveness, and responsiveness.So grateful to him!"


"Matthew did a fantastic job with our rental property. He was very informative and professional. He found us a tenant in less than one week. We will definitely use him for all future rental needs"

"So happy we worked with Matt when buying our fist home! He is extremely knowledgeable about the Chicago market and does a great job of educating throughout the entire process. Can't recommend enough!"



"Matt went above and beyond for us throughout the entire process. He went out of his way to work with our crazy schedules and our needs and, to be honest, our anxiety! I can't say enough great things about Matt and will absolutely be looking to work with him again when the need arises"



"I am so glad we found Matt! He was very professional, attentive, extremely helpful, and patient beyond words. Oh, and did I mention always available when we needed him?! My fiancé and I had a great experience renting through Matt and will definitely connect with him when we are ready to buy next year!"



"Mr. Neistat was extremely helpful and courteous. This was our first sale and he went out of his way to explain the process and reassure us is we had any reservation. My sale had complications with a uncooperative tenant and Mr. Neistat understood and didn't show any frustrations, even if he had any. He even took the time to deliver, right to show notices for us, since we live at least an hour away. Mr. Neistat's services were far and beyond my expectations. We would gladly work with him again! Thank you so much Matt."


"Matt was absolutely phenomenal from the first day we started looking until the day we closed. He made the experience (which was our first home buying experience) a smooth and simple process. He helped explain everything in a digestible way as home buying, especially the first time, can be a daunting process. We consider ourselves lucky to have had Matt to help in this entire process and would absolutely recommend him to everyone and anyone! Thank you Matt!!"

"Matthew goes above and beyond to deliver personal and quality service. Could not have found my ideal apartment, move in date, and price without his professional expertise. I highly recommend his service."



"Matt is knowledgeable, quick to respond, and communicates effectively."


"Matt was amazing. I can't describe how happy I was that he was my realtor. He went so far above and beyond his actual responsibilities and even assisted with follow up activities for the sale of my old home. He is an asset to @properties and I will recommend him to all future transfers to the Chicagoland area. Great guy, awesome realtor!"



"Matt was so great! He completely understood and respected my qualifications for a new apartment, quick to respond to questions, accommodating to my schedule for showings and able to arrange showings quickly so I didn't miss out on any opportunities."


"Matthew was responsible and provided useful guidance throughout the entire listing process."

"Matt has been great. He listens to what you want and produces results. He really made the whole process nice and easy. @properties has also been great. From the moment we walked into the place we chose to the lease signing, everything has been seamless. Thanks for everything!"


"Matthew initially responded to a request on a potential unit we wanted to rent. He was so easy to talk to and was not pushy, we felt very comfortable from the beginning. He walked us through all the scenarios with carrying a mortgage and looking to rent a bigger place and even selling our current home. Each step of the way he would check in with us to make sure everyone was on the same page. We appreciated his patience and easy approach while we searched for a new place. He was also great at communicating and answering any questions we had. He was very thorough and well informed regarding the Chicago real estate market. He went above and beyond what we would have expected from a realtor when we were selling our place. He assisted in every aspect, not just in preparing our unit for the sale, but also the moving company and selecting the right attorney. If we ever decide to buy or rent again, Mathew will be our realtor."



"Matthew was very professional and timely. He was extremely patient with me in my decision making process and for that I give him great revues!"



"Matt was the most patient, kind and communicative realtor. He understood exactly what we wanted and delivered. After signing an initial lease and it falling through, he continued to search for a place for us and found an even better one! We will definitely be referring him to anyone looking for a new place to live. Before finding Matt, we dealt with very uncaring realtors who just sent any and all MLS listings. They were also very difficult to schedule with. Matt went through the listings and made sure each one was worth looking at before sending and was super easy to schedule. He made us feel like we were the only ones he was taking care of. Super great guy!"



"In the 10 years I have lived in Chicago,(including six different apartment searches) Matt Neistat is the most patient, helpful, and professional rental broker I have ever had the pleasure of working with! My boyfriend and I worked with him for months- changing our original move-in date and search terms, but nothing ever ruffled his feathers and we found a wonderful place in a building that we love. Thank you, Matt!"



"Matt communicates very well and frequently with clients. I have already referred him to multiple people looking to move around the downtown area."
