Team reviews

My wife and I had an excellent experience buying and selling a house with Matt. <br/><br/>We found him to be very professional and always available to answer questions or ease our concerns throughout the unavoidably stressful process. You can tell he has a personalized approach with his clients because he was comfortable communicating via email and text with us for most things (and calling or meeting as needed), but would meet the seller in person to discuss almost all matters as that was their personal preference. It seems like Matt was almost always somewhere nearby in the area and willing to stop by or meet at his office as needed.<br/><br/>He adeptly navigated the challenging "disclosed dual agent" role while representing the seller of the house we were buying as well as being our agent on the sale of our current house. Although we were a little nervous at first about the arrangement, we found Matt to be very trustworthy and reasonable. We felt he was equally representing us in negotiations and made sure we got a fair deal. Actually, in hindsight, I think it would have been much more complicated if we were to have an additional agent involved. It really simplified and streamlined the process to be able to deal directly with Matt for all matters who was the only intermediary between us and the seller. <br/><br/>After we made an offer on the house, Matt quickly kicked into gear and was able to get our current house listed very quickly (over the weekend essentially). He was able to get a good amount of traffic at our initial open house with some interested buyers from which we received an excellent offer just days later. Impressively, he helped us find a buyer in the span of about 2 weeks!<br/><br/>You can tell he's been in the business for a long time based on his contact network. Almost no matter what the service is "he knows a guy" (or two) that he can recommend and we found his referrals to also be of excellent quality. He has built a great team and relationships through the years which really helps ease the process since he knows many people personally.<br/><br/>We highly recommend Matt.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Haverhill, MA.

Matt sold my house in no time. Even when the original buyer's financing fell through I had another buyer less than a week later. He was aggressive in selling the house and followed-up with me until closing and got it done. A+

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Methuen, MA.

Matt was a great resource for helping us find our new home. He was informative and quick to respond particularly as our buying/selling process was coming to a close. He was always available and stuck with us through the whole year of finding a seller for our home and buying a new one! Thanks, Matt!

Matt was fantastic throughout the process of buying my new home in Methuen. Immediately responsive to all texts and in offering suggestions for contractors or expert advise during home inspection. I would definitely recommend him to any friends or family looking at the real estate market in the area. I know they'd be in good hands. Thanks, Matt!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Methuen, MA.

Matt helped me and my family sell our home in Methuen. Due to our situation we needed to move, unfortunately, our house was "under water". In a situation where we thought we had no options Matt explained to us the short sale process. From the moment we had a buyer to the end of the bank approval of the sale, Matt and his team supported us. Matt had answers to all questions and really helped us manage the stress of the process. We could not gave been more pleased with Matt, there is no doubt that in a couple of years when we are ready to buy again the first call we will make is to Matt so we can work with him again.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $575K in North Andover, MA.

Matt had exceptional knowledge of the area as well as the overall home purchase process. He had a large network of service service providers that he could refer us to for each step of the process. I strongly recommend Matt and will be the first person I call if I need a real estate agent in the future.

Matt was informed, knowledgable and a great representative to both purchase a house and sell one. He is able to take the time to learn your goals and requirements to ensure that your transaction meets your expectations. I would not hesitate working with him again.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $425K in Somerville, MA.

Matt was amazing in walking me through the process to buy my condo this year! His expert knowledge of the real estate market made the search a breeze and allowed me the opportunity to get a great deal on a condo, in a sellers market.

Matt was very responsive throughout the whole closing process, he was always readily available via txt, email, or phone. His knowledge and professionalism make it an easy decision to use his services again when I decide to buy a house.

Most importantly Matt has a great personality and sense of humor, he honestly made what can be a frustrating process into an enjoyable one.
