Ratings & Reviews

Dave was recommended by a family friend.<br/><br/>Selling our house was not easy. Not Dave's fault. He did everything he could to increase the visibility of our house - multiple open houses, bringing several of his clients to the house, and several other misc. items. He offered advice when requested but never pushed us to do something we didn't want to do. He helped us with everything from sale prep to understanding open houses and showings... the whole gamut. He answered innumerable questions with professionalism and patience. <br/><br/>When the time came to negotiate the offer we were (of course) emotional but, Dave helped us get the best price we could. The negotiating process was the key. Dave helped us understand what was realistic to expect in an offer while still strongly representing our position to the buyers. I am confident we got the best offer we could.<br/><br/>We actually got the offer while we were on vacation and Dave arranged for us to receive and sign the documents at a nearby Re-Max office thereby minimizing the disturbance to our vacation. <br/><br/>I have had dealings with other agents. I have found them to be less than responsive. Dave, on the other hand retuned calls in a reasonable period of time and took calls even at odd hours (early morning, evening etc...). Nothing is more frustrating than waiting for your agent to call you back - or even having to leave multiple messages. This was not a problem with Dave.

Helped me rent a Single Family home in Hamburg, PA.

Dave is 100% devoted to his clients. He takes the time to educate, provide well thought-out recommendations, and informs quickly. He responds to any missed calls in a timely fashion. He is not just a real estate agent for the sale, he genuinely cares about his clients and their needs.

Bought a home in 2013.

I have already referred Dave to 2 people I know and he has helped both of them buy homes; they also were very happy with Dave. Dave is very timely in his responses and very knowledgeable of the market.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $75K in Hamburg, PA.

Anyone ever buy or sell a house, Dave Mattes is your guy! Through the whole process of buying a house he was always ready to answer any questions and he always got back to us in a timely manner (no matter the time of the day). Both my boyfriend and I feel we made the right choice when we asked Dave to be our realtor! It truly was a pleasure working with him! Thanks Dave!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Reading, PA.

Dave Mattes was fantastic to work with. Before working with Dave, we had major concerns about over paying for a home, home values and valuation. In addition, we were looking for the “high ground” in an effort to mitigate the risk of buying a home in a volatile market. Dave skillfully navigated us through the “uncharted waters” typical of today’s real estate market and did an exceptional job helping us find a beautiful home that we could afford.

Dave has extensive experience, and his open-minded approach could not be overestimated. He is proactive, insightful, dedicated and has a positive attitude towards work and helping his clients. Dave never made us feel rushed or pressured to purchase a home – very professional engagement. Oh and, Dave has a great sense of humor which is an asset since buying a home can be stressful. Thanks to Dave, we now live in the home of our dreams. - Brenda Doherty.

Bought a home in 2009 in Eshbach, Washington Township, PA 19505.

When looking to buy our first home, we were referred to Dave. We knew very little about the process of buying a home and Dave walked us through all the details, dealt with our fears (!), and was an excellent source of knowledge, support and expert advice. Not only is he very responsive and addresses all concerns and questions immediately, he is very resourceful, creative and able to create options for his clients. This way, we ended up with a very nice first home. If we ever move, he will be our realtor.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Auburn, PA.

Dave made everything so easy. We found a house we wanted to see, went and saw it, made an offer and BOOM!, first time home owners. Dave handled the minor speed bumps with expertise such as negotiations, and problems with the seller, and kept both myself and my wife level headed and up to date on the situation the whole time. ALL issues were minor issues, and everything went perfect. I would recommend Dave for any home buyer, a master at real estate in my book.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Bernville, PA.

We moved to the Reading area and Dave helped us find a home in 2010. A change in jobs caused us to move rather quickly and Dave was able to list our home within days of calling him. He sold our house a few weeks ago after less than 90 days on the market! He was a great help with the sale of our home and a great agent and representative for us as we had already moved out of state. I would recommend Dave to anyone in Berks county!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $325K in Reading, PA.

My husband and I were relocating to Pennsylvania from Illinois and were given Dave Mattes as a reference for a realtor in the area. We were very impressed with Dave's professionalism, eagerness to work with us, and his knowledge and experience in meeting our needs to find a home. We highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy a home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $200K in Sinking Spring, PA.

You will not find better service, period. My family were relocating to the area and were fortunate enough to select Dave Mattes as a realtor. We found Dave to be responsive, knowledgable and helpful throughout the purchasing process & were very impressed with Dave's knowledge and experience. We highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home.
