Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $750K in Outer Richmond, San Francisco, CA.
We were looking for real estate in San Francisco and pretty confused on how the whole thing worked. We've lived in the city for many years and thought we knew the neighborhoods and what we were looking for. Although we started our search with one real estate agent, we felt they were not available or attentive enough for a first-time home buyer. Then we were referred to Matt Ciganek. What a difference! Once he took us on, he was with us every step of the way and was always available by phone or email with updates and suggestions. He scoured the area and checked out a lot of properties before mentioning them as possibilities for us. He truly listened to what we were looking for and worked days, nights, and weekends to find it. He walked us through many properties while asking questions and seeking answers to assess our needs and desires in a property. Matt has a warm and engaging personality, and he makes the process fun and much less daunting. If you are looking to buy property in San Francisco (especially in the Richmond or Sunset districts) Matt is definitely an excellent choice for your real estate agent! He loves to surf and knows those districts really well. Thanks to his efforts, we successfully purchased our first home.
matt was so great at helping us as first time home buyers. we had tons of questions, and he was always very understanding and clear about explanations. the whole process can get very complicated, but matt made it a very smooth process. matt was very understanding of the kind of home we were looking for, and showed us many options. we ended up buying the first house we bid on! i believe matt gave us really helpful advice through the whole bidding/offer process and the escrow process as well. he was very nice to work with and easy to talk to. we still keep in contact with him, and he continues to be helpful
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $850K in Forest Hill, San Francisco, CA.
I was very pleased with my experience of having Matt as my agent. He knows the SF area really well, but what helped me get my home is his professional and honest working relationship with myself and the selling agent as well.
He was always open to seeing flaws and upside potential on prospective homes which helped me find an ideal house that I can call home. He knew what I had to work with and was able to put together a great offer contract that sealed the deal. Matt is an agent you can trust right from the start and he is an asset to have in the home buying process.
