Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $325K in Grimes, IA.
Matt knows the real estate and the market in the Des Moines area and is familiar with builders common to the area and the attributes of each. He was straight forward and honest in all dealings with us as he represented our interest in finding and acquiring the right house for our family. He never tried to pressure us into looking at property outside of our desired price range. Best of all - Matt responded immediately whenever we had a new interest in a property or we had a new question. No questioning his work ethic.
In our move from Cedar Rapids to Des Moines, Matt made the house hunting experience exceptionally easy. He arranged for showings (many times on short notice of being in town) always working within our time frame. He was extremely patient as we looked at a wide variety of locations and styles of homes and he always provided us with valuable information and insights. Any time we had questions he made sure we received answers in a timely manner. He listened to what was important to us and really helped us to find the perfect home.
Matt introduced us to Nick Smith who was our mortgage broker. Like Matt, Nick is extremely knowledgeable. Between them they made sure they had all the information they needed so closing was smooth. The two of them are extremely professional and make a great team.
It didn't stop there. We closed on our house in the summer of 2011 and in our plans to put personal touches on our home Matt is still helping us 8 months later! He has provided us with numerous contacts and ideas to assist us in our plans. I hope you enjoy working with Matt and Nick as much as we did.

I started my home buying journey in the fall of 2010 and that journey lasted for about one year, I'm very picky. Matt was with me every step of the way! This was my first home so I had no clue how ignorant I really was...but I was in great hands! No matter what kind of question I had...finishing a basement, kitchen remodel, landscaping, additions to the house; he either knew the answer or had someone he could call for the answer. At one point in my home buying journey, I wanted to build a house...he had a guy for that too! I had emails from him at 5:30 AM sometimes as late as 10:30 PM...the guy is always working for you! He even debated putting his vacation on hold for a day because I was getting ready to put an offer in a house, of course I didn't let him! I highly recommend contacting Matt and putting him to work for you. You won't be disappointed.

Matt was once describe to me as the kind of person that is a "bull in a china shop" and its absolutely true. I never dreamed that at the age of 25 I would own my own home, but Matt and Nick Smith (my mortgage broker) made it possible. Matt was able to help me find the perfect home and negociated it to be within my price range. I don't know what I would have done without him. I tried looking for a home on my own thinking that real estate agents and brokers were just out for the commission, but I was ABSOLUTELY wrong. Matt and Nick made the process so smooth and they took care of me like they were my older brothers, they made me feel like I was their top client even though they made a very small amount on my purchase. I will never fully be able to express my appreciation for all their help. If you are looking to purchase a new home or even sell the home you are currently in I can promise you that you will not regret having Matt and Nick on your side.
