Team reviews

Matt was an enormous help in our purchasing our new home. He knew areas we just didn't even think about and married his local knowledge with our desire and our needs. He also was very very patient, oh boy was he patient... because we wanted in on pretty much every house that came on the market. Matt listened carefully and learned from the vibe we were giving off, and then adjusted the showings and the houses he was finding for us. He really did a great job in helping us from beginning to end. He also helped me in the year since we purchased with the rental of our old home. He gave me tips and was also very available with his time. And I just knew I was getting good ideas every time I spoke with Matt on anything, whether it was closing negotiation strategies, rental strategies, or even tax law - Matt really knows his stuff and I would recommend him very very highly. Thanks Matt for helping us out so much!

Bought a home in 2015 in Falcon, Security-Widefield, CO 80925.

Outstanding agent to work with. I knew about Matt even before I arrived in Colorado Springs. He has helped 3 other of my fellow Soldiers so he's got a great reputation. Very professional and knowledgeable of the local area. Very attentive and knew in details about everything we wanted and asked for. I will certainly recommend Matt to other people.

Bought a home in 2015 in Briargate, Colorado Springs, CO 80924.

Matt was easy to work with, helpful, knowledgeable and responsive. I lived 1100 miles away from my new home, so most of my transactions were done via phone calls, texts and emails, and he got it right! I had originally contacted Matt regarding a home in foreclosure of interest to me. He explained the process surrounding Foreclosures and because of logistics and my timeline, a foreclosed property was not really an option. He asked what I was looking for in a home; fortunately I had been looking at listing in the area online and have work colleagues in the area to offer advice, so it was pretty easy for me to describe where and what I was looking for. Matt set me up on the MLS robo listing email list, sending me new info daily as new things popped on the market, based on my criteria. In the matter of just a few days I was able to narrow the field down to 6 houses. I am partial to new construction, and Matt was able to work with the neighborhood sales office to get answers to all of my questions, to the point that I felt confident about writing the contract, site unseen - pending my visual inspection. I flew in for a business trip and within 18 hours of landing at the local airport I had signed a contract! Matt showed me the other houses on my list the following day, to validate my decision, but none compared to my dream home. Because I lived 1100 miles away, Matt was able to be my proxy for my home and initial pre closing walk through inspections. That effort really helped a lot and let me focus on tying up loose ends in the city I was leaving. Matt was on hand for the final walkthrough before closing, attended the closing with me, and even followed up with me after the closing. Bottom line - MATT SPECIALIZES IN SERVICE and I highly recommend him; I don't think you will be disappointed.

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

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!

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!
