Did not respond to my inquiry.
I contacted him on several occassions and never received a response even after a couple of weeks of waiting. That seems very unprofessional.

Showed home in 2013 in Round Lake Heights, IL 60073.
Matt helped us search for a new home recently. While we ended up going with new construction due, it was not due to a shortage of options Matt put in front of us. He was helpful throughout the process and remained impartial as we made our decision. Matt also sent a renter our way for our current home which made the closing process on our new place a lot less stressful.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $100K in Mchenry, IL.
Matt was a great help in selling our home and purchasing our new home. Very responsive to emails and phone calls. Helped explain everything in detail and made us feel very comfortable with what could be a very confusing process. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Sold a home in 2013.
Matt worked with me on both selling my home and purchasing a new one. I had interviewed 6 realtors including Matt and he was the most up front and knowledgable, the others didnt even come close in comparison. He was able to explain his approach and techniques in detail and was always there if I needed to ask him any questions. It is truely hard to find a realtor that you trust and I can say without a doubt that I would fully trust Matt to help with any of my future interests in either selling a home or finding a new one.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Round Lake, IL.
My husband and I were in the market to buy a bigger home for our growing family. Matt was very familar with the area and schools. He also had very helpful resources to assist us with the buying process from start to finish. He was able to think quickly and stay professional during all situations to keep us reassured. I would definitely use his services again.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Gurnee, IL.
Matthew was our agent when we sold our town home. He was able to give us suggestions for getting our place sold quickly. We were under contract in less than 20 days!

Matt has been helping us look for a place to buy, which has been a longer process. He has extensive knowledge of foreclosures and short sales. He goes above and beyond.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Streamwood, IL.
My home was sold in 6 says and we had about 15 people come visit. i believe matt's advertising helped with such a quick sale. later We had a purchase fall through and were in need of buying another home in a short period of time. Matt was very obliging in using his time to hunt down some options for us.

Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $125K in Grayslake, IL.
Matthew was extremely helpful to my and wife and I while short selling our house as well as purchasing a short sale. He was patient while explaining the process and answering a ton of questions. He was honest and upfront about issues or red flags that he saw on the horizon...even if it wasn't great news. I can say with much confidence that my wife and kids would not be living in our "forever" home if Matthew wasn't our realtor. He is known and well respected by other agents which helped keep all parties moving forward with confidence. We have already recommended Matthew to friends and will continue to do so.

Sold a home in 2007.
Matthew is an extraordinarily talented asset to the Real Estate community. A most unique "commodity", if one can apply that to a human being, which Matthew is. He's not JUST a Realtor, he's a "Real PERSON" first and that is what makes him a great Realtor. I know of only ONE other, in all of my encounters with realtors that could even be considered, IMO, competition and even she doesn't quite fill the shoes Matthew does. I speak very truthfully when I say that 99.9% of persons/entities I deal with get blocked as spam when I'm finished with a project. Matthew doesn't and I've even written him to tell him to MAKE SURE the newsletters keep coming. He sends helpful tips, advice, really awesome information and I actually have a "Matthew Lawrence" file in my e-mail account in which I save every newsletter. I don't really care how they are generated (i.e.: if he writes them himself, pulls the pages together into a format, whatever), the fact is he is the epitome of what a highly successful business person should be. He reminds me of myself when I was younger and a top sales producer in my field and later, at the top of the game in marketing. He's one of a kind.

If I had ANY words of advice for Matthew, it would be that he could probably make motivational CD's. My favorite motivator in the late 80's was Roger Dawson. A MASTER of sales and what makes people buy.

It's a LONG way off until Matthew retires, I'm sure, but when he does or even before that he could acquire ENORMOUS wealth through the sale of motivational CD's, books, even motivational speaking events. It doesn't have to be about Real Estate either. That just happens to be the field he choose. The talent is applicable to EVERY hungry sales professional out there. EVERY LAST ONE.

I could go on and on BUT would likely overload the server so I'll end on that note.

I was asked to rate him and here is your response.

Sincerely,

Karen Fitzgerald DeRose tuffkitten219@sbcglobal.net OR tuffkitten@hotmail.com (I alternate)

Very easy to work with. Prompt responses and was concerned with helping us get the right home we were looking for. Matt supplied us with steady and appropriate purchase listings. All the details were worked out promptly and professionally. Worked to keep our spirits up and encouraged when not finding the right home was getting very daunting. Matt's listing for the home we were selling was very professional and made the property look very desirable. Our home found a buyer within a few days of listing.
