Bought a home in 2012.
Jose's work was an invaluable asset to me when trying to buy a home. He knows the local markets, knows houses in general, knows when a place is a good deal or a bad one, and is not afraid to speak his mind either way. He very quickly developed a sense of what I was looking for in a house, and pointed out things that were applicable to my criteria... in other words, he makes the process about you, and not about what he personally likes in a house. I was impressed with how much he remembered about me and my personal tastes, starting right after the first house we looked at.

Jose was also able to recommend some great people to help me with my home-buying process. The inspector he recommended did an outstanding and thorough job, and provided me with a great report! The attorney that Jose recommended went out of his way to help me close on my house late in the afternoon on July 3rd, the day before a holiday... when the mortgage company had given him THREE HOURS' notice!! The attorney knew I had been having a difficult time with my lender (who I chose on my own) and cleared his schedule in order to make it happen for me. You can feel very safe following Jose's recommendations when deciding who to work with.

Another strong suit of Jose's is his accessibility and his ability to share information with you and with the rest of your team. He answers voicemails, emails, and texts all in a very timely manner, and I don't think I ever waited more than a couple of hours for a response. Also, despite not having a heck of a lot to do after an agreement was signed between myself and the seller, he still initiated contact with me on a regular basis to check up on things. He also made sure the rest of the people working on the project (attorney, lender, seller) were all kept in the loop and up to date.

I was having a particularly difficult time getting the mortgage company to respond to my questions and move my file along, and Jose kept consistent pressure on them to provide me with the answers I needed and to move forward with my mortgage. He is not afraid to call something what it is, and when the lenders were not doing their job, he let them know in no uncertain terms that they were not doing right by me and that they needed to step up their game. Do not use Wells Fargo, by the way... based on my experience, you'd be better off using whoever Jose recommends to you!

All in all, I worked with Jose for more than 4 months, and was never less than completely satisfied with his work. He works with you to set up appointments that work, he tells it how it is, he answers all questions quickly and accurately, he knows great people to help you out with other parts of the process, and he's not afraid to go to bat for you if things are going south. Great experience!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Shirley, MA.
Jose did a great job helping me with the purchase of my first home. He showed me homes in many different towns and was very accomodating throughout the process. He understood what I was looking for and what I could afford, and helped me to find the perfect starter home. Purchasing a home via short sale is not an easy or fun thing to do, but Jose explained the whole process to me in detail so I knew exactly what to expect.He was very timely with responses to questions and concerns through every part of the buying process. I would certainly recommend Jose's services to anyone looking to buy a home!

Sold a home in 2013.
Jose was friendly, professional, and quick to respond. He delivered lots of showings and sold our house . Jose was attentive and took initiative to move things along for the sale. He was great to ensure everything was completed on time. I would definitely recommend Jose for either Buyer or Seller agent.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $300K in Worcester, MA.
Jose is the hardest working person in this business. He is dedicated to all of his clients and is very fast to respond. He has years of experience in this industry and has developed practices based upon how he would want to be treated if he was a buyer or seller.

Jose showed me dozens of houses during my search. Jose provides a very low pressure environment so that you can comfortably find your new house.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $250K in Orange, MA.
We found Jose by reading his outstanding reviews here on Zillow. We were first time homebuyers and purchased a vacation home in Massachusetts in December 2011. Since we live in California, we primarily used electronic communication. There were no problems in working with him long distance. Jose was very knowledgeable and was always willing to explain everything to us. He made us feel comfortable about every step of the process. We felt that Jose really had our interests in mind throughout the whole process. His excellent negotiation and communication skills were valuable. He even recommended an outstanding and thorough home inspector. Even after the Purchase & Sale agreement was signed, Jose played a key role in keeping everyone on track so we could close on schedule. He was willing to go the extra mile and help us make this home become a reality. He followed through until the very end!

If you are looking for a professional and ethical real estate agent, then look no further. We feel very fortunate to have found Jose and will proudly recommend him to anyone. He is such a nice guy and we now consider him a friend. Thank you Zillow for connecting us!

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $125K in Athol, MA.
Jose was very responsive to our needs and was willing to show us several homes a week until we found a home we loved. He was always very honest with us and never sugar-coated information. We always left every appointment informed and more knowledgeable than before. We highly reccomend using Jose Matthews to assist you in finding your dream home!

Showed home in 2011 in MA.
Jose is an exceptional realtor and very nice man! My husband and I have been working with Jose on buying our first home this spring (2011 - still in process...). He has shown us dozens of home all over Massachusetts; he seems to have endless patience for our many questions.

Every time he showed us a house or helped us though paper work, he was totally present! He never took another call or answered a text/email. This means that if you aren't WITH him it may (sometimes) be up to a half day or so until he calls you back, but he is always available during stressful moments in the process.

We highly recommend Jose Matthews!
