Ratings & Reviews

We originally went house shopping with my brother in law and sister in law. We liked Matt so much off of this initial meeting, that we decided to work with him too! He is extremely knowledgeable of the area (he grew up in the springs) and was able to show us a variety of houses within our range, overall it was a great experience! We would definitely work with Matt again!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $500K in Monument, CO.

Matt is a gem and an all -around great person! What a find! I contacted him by phone whilst still in CA. We flew out to meet him in May of 2014 to check out the Colorado Springs area. He had prepared a list houses for us to see and off we went. It was most helpful to see the different neighborhoods and homes (some with ½ to 5 + acre lots). Back in CA as we viewed all the MLS listings Matt sent us, we became more excited to move. Once we arrived in Colorado we let Matt know we were staying with friends in the Black Forest and we had a limited time to find a place. After we were situated, it was non-stop with Matt – he loves his profession and sincerely wants to help you find the right house and he will!! Matt is a great negotiator and very responsive. Matt takes the time to get to you and he really listens!! His professionalism, expertise and knowledge are phenomenal. He notices every little detail in a home whether it is good or bad. Home buying can be tough and we came in the middle of winter which is not the ideal time to buy or sell. Matt made it fun and easy regardless if we were wading in snow in our wellies or out in the beautiful sunshine. Matt is awesome!! My husband and I would HIGHLY recommend him. Thanks for our lovely home Matt! We do consider you our friend.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $350K in Briargate, Colorado Springs, CO.

Matt is by far the best Realtor I've ever had the opportunity to work with. We found him on Zillow after we decided to fire our original Realtor. We're military and did all of our home search online from across the country. Matt was able to make this process seamless for us. He was always responsive to every call, text or email and was a wealth of information. Within 24 hours of hiring Matt, a home hit the market we were really interested in. He immediately went to see the house on our behalf and sent us video on the home and gave us very honest opinions and advise regarding the property and neighborhood. We decided to take a leap of faith based on our research and his information and he negotiated a winning and very favorable bid within 24 hrs. I was able to make it out for the home inspection and everything that Matt told us about the property was accurate. The home exceeded our expectations. Two weeks after we had a contract, our orders changed. Since the home is one we plan to return to, we decided to go through with the purchase as an investment. Matt helped us work through the rental process, providing sample leases, estimates on what the home could rent for, and even offered to help show the house if needed. Matt is a true professional and is always centered on his client's best interests. I would recommend him to anyone.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $200K in East Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs, CO.

We are a military family who had short notice that we would be moving to the Ft. Carson area. We had been looking on Zillow and decided to email Matt due to all the great reviews. He was quick to respond (all the time) by text and email. We booked a flight for that weekend to go house hunting for 2 days and Matt accommodated us perfectly. We sent him a list of places we liked from Zillow and he showed us a lot of places on our list and places he thought we would like. Some of the places we liked weren't in good areas and he was quick to let us know which parts of town were safe and which places to avoid (much appreciated!). We found a great townhouse (2nd place we saw and he even took us back there the 2nd day for another look) in our price range with everything on our list of "desires and needs". This was our first time buying a place and we were pretty oblivious to the process but Matt ensured we understood everything. We communicated on a daily basis, completed online paperwork, and he worked with all other players of the buying process (mortgage lender, insurance company, etc.). Matt was able to move our closing date up almost a week - we had been living in a hotel for about a week so this was awesome. The total process from house hunting to closing was 3 weeks. Overall, Matt was friendly, knowledgable, and quick!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Southwest Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs, CO.

He got the job done very quickly. We had previously put our house on the market for more than a year. When we decided to use Matt the house had an offer and was sold in two months!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in East Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs, CO.

We initially contacted Matt in May of 2013, before we moved to Colorado. He sent us the MLS listings based on requirements and gave advice with regards to what area to look in. We ended up renting for a short period of time, and couldn't take it anymore! Matt helped us to find the perfect home in a short period of time. We love our new place. Thanks Matt!

Bought a home in 2014 in Briargate, Black Forest, CO 80908.

We contacted Matt on the last morning of our brief trip to the Springs to decide on land to buy on which to build a home. We didn't want to lose the property we had chosen and really wanted to have a contract before leaving the next morning. Matt very quickly came up to speed on the property and helped us to understand its value, and after 5 hours and some negotiation... WE HAD A CONTRACT with which we were very happy!!! We've since closed without a hitch. We know without a doubt that Matt's professionalism, advocacy and knowledge enabled us to achieve our objective with confidence that we have a great property at a great price. We're very happily looking forward to moving to the Springs next year and getting started on building our home.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Colorado Springs, CO.

I enlisted Matt's help to help us sell our house based on his excellent reviews. With Matt and his team's help the process from listing to selling was very smooth and easy. Matt answered all of my questions with expert knowledge and I appreciated knowing what to expect, since this was our first time selling. Highly recommended!

Bought a home in 2014 in Hampden, Denver, CO 80231.

Matt help me find a beautiful home in Monument Co. Matt is very knowledge on the details of the market and was very professional the entire time we worked together. Even given the fact that I gave him a really short time line of finding a home, getting approved for a loan and closing on the house within SIX WEEKS from the time that I first spoken to him, which if it was not for him and his recommended lender Brain McCloy would never have happen! Matt was great with introducing me into the world of home ownership and every outing was not only about finding my wife and I a perfect home, but was a learning experience about the market and the community. I highly recommend Matt for anyone who wish to work with a great professional.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $375K in East Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs, CO.

Matt did a terrific job in a very difficult home purchase since we were living out of state. He was the only reason that the lender was able to finally orchestrate the closing. He knows his job and remained positive and good natured during the times I was discouraged.
