Bought a Townhouse home in 2012 for approximately $375K in Scripps Ranch, San Diego, CA.

Matt really did an excellent job helping and guiding me through my first home purchase. Here are the items that really impressed me working with Matt:

- He is very professional and knowledgeable with the entire real estate business. He simply knows his business. - He makes himself available when you need him, be it day, night, or weekend. - He is very, very quick in getting things done. When I was ready to put a bid in, he would put it together very quickly. - He is very good at negotiating and will fight to get you a good deal. - He is very knowledgeable concerning home repairs and is very good at pointing out things you pay attention to when looking at places. - He has reliable contacts that he can refer to help you in every step of the process, even contractors after you move in. Everyone that Matt has recommended has been solid.

In addition to all these things, he is really a great guy who is honest and forthright. I actually found Matt via Zillow and he has done an excellent job in handling any and all the issues we have faced through this process and provided excellent guidance in helping me make good decisions through this process. I highly recommend him and would use him again to sell or buy another home.

Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $150K in North Park, San Diego, CA.

As a first time home buyer I was inexperienced with the process. Matt helped me through every step of the way. He is very well versed in the local market, is tech savvy, and has the experience and qualifications to make your buying experience great.

His communication was on point and I definitely felt like he was someone I could trust.

I think the highest recommendation I could possibly give is that if I ever want to purchase another home in the SD area, I will ask Matt to be my agent once again.

Bought a home in 2012.

I had the pleasure of working with Matt Hackett this year on the purchase of my home in San Diego, CA. From start to finish Matt was very professional and knowledgeable, I am happy with the home I purchased and I think it will be a great investment property in the future.

At the beginning of the process, he had me come to his office, where he asked me to tell him what areas I was looking to live in and my other requirements for a home. He has a sophisticated software program that narrows down available homes. It is all MLS based, so you know you are looking at an accurate list. Before working with Matt, I was looking myself on and other sites, but half of the homes I was interested in were already in escrow etc, which wasted my time and also lead to disappointment. Once the software narrows down the search, it saves this information to your personal site. This site will be automatically updated when new properties become available. You can star your favorites and Matt can recommend some to you as well. As a busy professional I did not have time to meet up with him during the week, and keeping track of random emails becomes monotonous, so being able to keep track of everything on my personalized home site was very important to me. I was very pleased that Matt offers this service to his clients, free of charge.

Matt made himself available whenever I wanted to look at homes, even on the weekends. When we went to inspect a home together, he would point out the positives and negatives of each home. He also always recommended homes that I could actually see myself living in. I have worked with other realtors in the past, and I couldn’t believe the homes they would take me to, homes that we’re not even close to what I was looking for.

Matt is very intelligent and I trusted in his expertise to find the right house and to get the deal closed. He is very easy to work with and really listens to what you are looking for. He has experience with traditional home sales, REO, Homepath and short sales. The home I purchased was a Homepath property.

He was kind enough to recommend a lending company to me and also the contractors he uses on his REO flips. The home I purchased needs to have a little upgrading done. I purchased my home in Del Mar, CA. Matt was familiar with many, if not all, of the areas in San Diego. My home search ranged from Carlsbad to downtown and east to Mira Mesa.

I really appreciated the great customer service that Matt provided to me and I highly recommend him to anyone.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $475K in Mira Mesa, San Diego, CA.

Truly a real estate agent who was interested in getting us the right home not just making the "sale". We placed several offers before finding our house. Matt gave us valuable feedback each fact we pulled out of one offer based on his recommendations which ended up saving us money and preventing a poor decision. Matt was extremely prompt and handled every "bump" along the way and we felt completely reassured throughout the process. The other real estate agent created several problems throughout the process, however, Matt handled everything efficiently, aggressively and professionally which kept the stress level to a minimum. His knowledge surprised me because it extended beyond just the home buying process. We received excellent advice regarding everything from financing/loans, home repair, the appraisal process, and even wonderful suggestions for maintenance and upgrades. We can't say enough good things about Matt and our experience and we will use him again if we ever need to buy or sell a house.

Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $100K in Grantville, San Diego, CA.

Excellent integrity, work ethic and motivation in helping his clients throughout the entire home buying process. Very knowledgeable about all the details involved with a home purchase and is more than willing to explain them at your pace. This guy steps up to the plate and goes to bat for you! Very experienced and knows the entire SD County area very well with regards to Real Estate.

I've worked with a total of three agents in the San Diego area. Two of the three were either incompetent, indifferent to the customers requests for information, or just total 'flakes.' Matt at Gold Coast is exactly what you'd expect from a good Real Estate agent. Couldn't say enough about Matt and the entire team at Gold Coast. I've already recommended him to a friend.

Thanks Again Gold Coast!

Bought a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $200K in Normal Heights, San Diego, CA.

Matt helped me buy my condo a in Febuary 2011. Being the picky person that I am, the search took me just over a year. Matt was very patient, professional, and worked very hard to help find just the right place for me. He was always available to answer any questions that I had and made the process of buying a condo very easy and stress free. I highly recommend Matt and will definately go to him again when it is time for me to purchase again.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in Mira Mesa, San Diego, CA.

Matt was very informative and knowledgeable about geographics. He made a listing of homes catered to my specifications and was sent to me almost daily as they became available. He is personable and a true friend, always looking out for what was in my best interest and most importantly, he was honest! I would definitely recommend Matt for your real estate needs!

Sold a home in 2005.

Matt has been my Realtor for the past 7 years, he represented me on the purchase of my first home. Having little knowledge of the real estate buying process Matt made it easy for me to understand and made the transaction seem effortless and stress free. His expertise, negotiation skills and friendly support staff are top notch which can be hard to find in today's market. He was able to quickly find the type of home I was in the market for, established some appointments to view some properties, within a short period of time he made an offer and we closed in under a month, it was a seamless process and I am thankful to have had a trusting Real Estate Professional on my side. Matt has an abundance of Real Estate knowledge and knows the San Diego market really well and I would recommend his services to anyone from the first time home buyer to the real estate investor to work with him.
