Testimonials

Matt is an awesome agent; he was a pleasure to work with. I listed my home with Matthew in September and he was very informative and reassuring about the entire process. After a terrible experience in 2007 with another agency I was hesitant to begin the process again, especially with the state of the economy. Matthew went above and beyond to keep me informed and comfortable throughout the entire process. He also returned all calls and e-mails the same day. At the end of October I received two contracts on my home and he helpmed me make an educated decision about which to accept. Matthew was also present at all of the inspections during the selling process and kept close contact with the buyer's agent. We closed on the sale right before Thanksgiving. Matthew is an excellent agent and I was extremely happy with my entire selling experience. I will definitely refer him to friends and family and will use his services again when the need arises.
