Matt is extremely responsive and personable. After contacting him I was able to look at a condo the next day, and had an offer ready that night. He stayed on top of everything throughout the whole buying process, and continually followed through. He is very knowledgable of the market, and is honest. Very organized. Would recommend to anyone buying-especially first time buyers!

I'm lucky Matt was my real estate. I trust Matt as much as I trust my brother and family . He always there to help. He is very honest. He helped me in each steps until I bought my apt. I really wish I can rate him with more than 5 starts .

I met Matt after doing several area searches on Trulia and similar sites. He was the only Realtor out of many that responded to my request for information with an offer to discuss the entire process over coffee. As a first-time buyer, I appreciated that Matt didn't just ask when I was available to look at properties (as all the others did), but rather walked me through what to expect. He made sure I understood what was happening, which made the decision to work with him an easy one.
Matt listened to exactly what we were looking for, and he was honest with us if we saw something he didn't think was the best fit. After looking at hundreds of properties online, we ended up putting in an offer for the sixth condo we saw in person.
For us, the frustration came when in the process of closing the deal. The seller's Realtor was extremely unorganized and frustrating, but Matt took all of the dirty work and got our questions answered, shielding us from a few frustrating people along the way.
Matt was responsive to a fault, as he was often answering my "middle of the night because I can't stop thinking about this" emails in an almost immediate fashion.
I'm extremely type-A, organized and inquisitive. I'm picky and I know I can be demanding (sorry, Matt!), but he was patient with me and let me cover all my bases, which I really appreciated.
I highly recommend Matt to anyone looking for a place to call their own in Chicago, especially first-timers!

I can't recommend Matt more highly. He was able to find me the perfect place quickly and for the right price in the West Loop. He's great to work with and I completely trust him. He'll point out the good and bad points in each place. He's responsive and friendly. He takes the anxiety out of the process, especially since I was a first time buyer.
I would recommend anyone and everyone work with him.
Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $1.175M in Gold Coast, Chicago, IL.
met Matt last fall. We discussed my needs. Within a couple of showings he got what I was looking for -- which was a tall order given desired mix of size, amenities, location and budget. Matt didn't push anything that wasn't right for me; helped me understand the market and continued to look for my next home. In early summer we found a terrific condo, however, the pricing gap was too big. Through patience and discussion we got the price to an acceptable level over the next 60 days. I give credit to Matt for his handling of the realtors on both sides; the bankers and lawyers; and the deal itself. Matt worked very hard for me and its clear he works hard for all of his clients. Very responsive. I would send him emails at 11pm so I could get a response the next morning; and I typically had a reply at 11:03! Excellent job and excellent staff. Would highly recommend him to my friends.

Matt knows the real estate market and the business. He's extremely responsive and will always answer all your questions or concerns. He's personable and really easy to work with. You can't go wrong with choosing Matt!

Matt is a fantastic realtor who made our condo purchase a smooth process at a a great price and a quick pace. We met him through my sister-in-law who was in the market for two condos in the Chicagoland area to rent out from CA. Matt's great attitude and knowledge base made a huge impact on my husband who wanted to work with him when we were getting out first place. Matt checked with us several times a week to make sure we were in the loop with the sellers and his team. I highly recommend him and will definitely work with him again!

Since this was my first home buying process I was nervous from the start, but that did not last very long. From the first email I sent Matt he responded with in minutes introducing him self and wanted to schedule a sit down. Once we sat down and talked all my nerves were gone because he was not your typical "salesmen". He was always on time and could us in to look at any condo i wanted. Once we landed on the one i loved he got me an awesome price and stayed in contact throughout the whole process. Any questions i would have he would always have the answers for me. When i go to purchase my next home there is no other person i would consider, i would highly recommend Matt to anyone in my family or friends.
