I listed my home with Matt after my wife and I had two very disappointing experiences with relators selling the condo she owned, and attempting to sell mine that ended in extensive damage to my condo. I was very impressed with the way Matt handled the listing. He was very responsive to questions. I was skeptical at first since Matt (and possibly ReMax) don't depend a lot on open houses for sales but Matt found a buyer with about two weeks when my prior listed had lasted over three months without even an offer. He stayed on top of the negotiations, kept me informed and in the loop even though I have moved several hundred miles from Cedar Rapids. Matt makes extensive use of technology which made the process of listing and closing easy to do when it would have been difficult for me to be present physically, and traditional mail/deliver service would have been inconvenient.
I also want to give a shout-out to Cheryl at At Your Service Escrow who handled most of the closing details and documentation. She was also very adept at communicating through phone and email, making sure I knew where we were in the process and what actions I needed to take. Of course there is always something that takes right up to the deadline to complete but the closing went off very smoothly with a minimum of stress.

Matt e-mailed me all the homes in my area and within our price range that came on the market. If I had any questions I would hear back from him promptly. I would recommend Matt Smith if you are looking to buy or sell.

Matt was extremely helpful in answering all of our questions as first-time home buyers. He always responded quickly and was great at using his expertise to guide us through the process. Matt helped us negotiate a deal that we were comfortable with and had good relationships with other realtors in the area. I would highly recommend him to other home buyers.
