When my husband and I got married about a year ago we decided to sell both of our homes. My husband used the realtor he had been with for almost 30 years, and I chose Tom Mattix to sell my home. The sale of his house was a bit of a struggle but all eventually went well and as before, we were very satisfied with his realtor. At least we thought we were satisfied until experiencing Tom in action.
Tom Mattix is friendly, enthusiastic, responsive, meticulous and an expert at selling homes. With his experience as a broker he has a deep understanding of the housing market and he doesn’t just put your home up for sale and then wait for buyers. First he showed us a list of comparable homes and what they were selling for and then we toured those homes with him to learn exactly how they compared and what made them more or less valuable than my home. He made several tours through our home pointing out exactly what needed to be cleaned/painted/fixed or replaced. We followed his instructions to the letter. His presentation of the home in print and on the internet was flawless.
We had an offer on the first day of showing and multiple backup offers quickly followed. We accepted an offer that was higher than our asking price.
You will not find a more knowledgeable and ethical real estate professional than Tom Mattix!
Sold a home in 2012 in Casa De Oro-Mount Helix, La Mesa, CA 91941.
During the past ten years we have sought the real estate services and advice of Tom Mattix in the sale/purchase of five detached homes in El Cajon and La Mesa, CA. Tom is a highly educated real estate professional and is well versed in contract negotiation, is an articulate communicator, possesses a reference list of knowledgeable escrow/loan officers and is quick to respond to any need. During our escrow periods, Tom tracked the progress of loan appraisals/approvals, home inspections/repairs, inter-acted with the other agents and ensured escrow closures were on time. In several of these transactions, Tom had to deal with agents that were less experienced and actually guided them in the proper procedures to follow in the successful sale/purchase of the property. Our latest sale/purchase was completed in November 2012. Tom utilizes the latest internet based technology such as "Doc-U-Sign" to expedite sale/purchase transactions. Tom is well experienced in the purchase of investment property and one of our purchases was for this purpose. Purchasing a home is an exciting experience and we highly recommend Tom Mattix to be your real estate professional.
Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $450K in Mission Bay Park, San Diego, CA.
Tom was a really great realtor for us. Over the space of several months, he patiently showed us a lot of properties in the PB/Lower La Jolla area as our requirements, price range, and preferences morphed, and he helped us focus in on what we really loved. In the current low inventory environment, he helped us jump on a place that became available, and assisted us in getting a successful offer in on the day the property was listed, even though I was actually out of the country at the time! After the purchase he also helped us find a contractor we were happy with, and he checked back in several times during the remodel to see how things were going, and came to visit to see the final result. Tom also sends us monthly emails about the San Diego real estate scene, general housing and lending trends, and householder tips. All in all, he's a pro and we have no hesitation recommending Tom.
Bought a Condo home in 2000 for approximately $700K in Mission Beach, San Diego, CA.
I first met Tom when I called ReMax out of the blue, looking for an agent to help me find a condo in Mission Beach in 2001. Tom was the next in queue, I suppose. Was I ever lucky! Tom handily helped me purchase a condo. I was extremely pleased with his work. Then, I decided that I wanted a single-family dwelling and I spent many weeks each summer, looking at other properties. Tom couldn't have been more supportive and pleasant, although I'm sure he probably wanted to drop me as a client!!! I finally found another place in 2012, and Tom helped me purchase the new property and listed and sold my condo. Again, I couldn't have been happier with his work. I have worked with many real estate agents over the years. I can say that, without a doubt, Tom Mattix is the most thorough and knowledgeable agent I have ever worked with. Whenever I have worked with Tom, I have felt as though I am being well taken care of. He is incredibly responsive and helpful. Honestly...if you want a good agent in the San Diego area, go with Tom. You won't be disappointed!
In the future Tom Mattix is the only Real Estate agent I will ever use in San Diego. I have 3 properties in the area and he has helped me with each one in one way or another. With My last property that I acquired, Tom worked tirelessly to help me find the property and close the deal. I am picky, and he spent a lot of time with me helping me find the right property for my needs and wants.
I trust him completely. He has always been their with the right answer, or he knew where to find the answer. He understands the needs of his clients, both as investors or as home buyers. He is always there when I need him. I have never had to worry about how long it will take for him to get back to me, he always comes through in record time. He is the only agent that I would recommend to a friend.
Bought a Condo home in 2002 for approximately $1.0M in Mission Beach, San Diego, CA.
We consider Tom Mattix one of the finest people we have ever met in the real estate business. He was instrumental in finding and negotiating a superb property on Bayside Walk way back in 2002. The story doesn't end there, however. Tom has continued to stay in touch periodically with expert real estate information regarding the Mission Beach area. We consider him extremely honest, hard working, and true professional.
Tom is currently in a search for us as we attempt to "step up" in the market. We would say that Tom has not only represented himself as a true results oriented agent, but has also become a trusted friend. We are confident that he will always do what's in our best interest.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $500K in Bay Ho, San Diego, CA.
Tom Mattix did an excellent job helping us find a lovely San Diego home at a reasonable price. He was knowledgeable about the market, communicated clearly and promptly, and candidly pointed out some negative aspects of the houses we viewed. When we found the right home for us, he was trustworthy, helpful and patient, with negotiating the purchase terms and then closing the deal.
Tom made the process simple and painless. I immediately felt a level of trust that Tom was looking after my best interests. He asked many questions to get to know me better, and by the time we were looking at condos, he fully anticipated what I was looking for. He made sure I was aware of all pros and cons - both short and long term. He was quick to respond to all of my questions, and took the time to anticipate what I would need to know as I moved through the process. I was surprised at the amount of approvals required, and valued his insight and guidance. I fully recommend Tom to anyone looking for property in San Diego.
Bought a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $600K in Rancho Penasquitos, San Diego, CA.

Tom has an unbelievable work ethic, provides great market data to his customers, has many years of experience, and is a master negotiator. Tom genuinely cares about his customers, and has their best interest in mind. I highly recommend Tom Mattix to anybody who is trying to buy or sell a home!
