Ratings & Reviews

This was our first home purchase and we couldn't be any happier about the outcome and our experience with Matt. We were shopping in a market we were largely unfamiliar with and relied heavily on our Matt's knowledge and guidance. His straightforward approach was useful in helping us find the right property for our needs and budget. The comfort of having an expert to work with made navigating an unfamiliar process much easier and less stressful. Matt helped us begin our search by identifying neighborhoods that would meet our short and long term needs. We were able to search confidently knowing that the area we were searching would suit our personal, professional, and recreational interests. Another form of confidence came from searching in a market where our investment would remain stable with the likelihood of increasing in value over time. We heavily researched Matt's recommendations and found him to be completely competent while adding additional context specific to our search. The home buying process can be an overwhelming task to people with busy lives and careers. It was particularly helpful to have an agent that was as responsive as Matt. Whether by phone, email, or even text message I quickly heard back from Matt regarding the matter at hand. Additionally, I believe that the speed of response in a competitive market is a significant advantage in the searching and offer phases of the process. Matt's availability at a few key moments, that were definitely off-hours, were likely the reason we were able to make a successful offer and close much easier than we may have been able to with another agent. Matt's knowledge of the process from search to closing was invaluable to us as first time buyers. He guided us through each phase while patiently answering any questions along the way. He was also able to anticipate questions or concerns he knew we might have. That anticipation amounted to significant time savings as well as further confidence toward a successful transaction. We feel grateful to have successfully made a purchase and enjoy the process as much as we did. A responsive, knowledgeable, and honest agent makes a big difference in this type of transaction. My wife, my kids, and myself all enjoyed working with Matt and will gladly recommend him to anyone that is searching for a new home.

Sold a home in 2015.

Matt was knowledgeable and responsive throughout the process. In the end, I would Matt again or refer a friend or family member the next time a real estate agent is needed.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Freedom, PA.

Matt made an otherwise overwhelming experience work out for us. We could not imagine trying to get over all of the hurdles that came our way without his help. More than once he addressed issues that came up that stressed us out with professional ease. He is always available and puts the needs of his clients first, even offering to be a sounding board when we needed one. He made the experience a good one and I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home or commercial property. We'd spoken with a couple of other agents but none compared to Matt right from the first meeting.

Bought a home in 2014 in Merrill, Industry, PA 15009.

I could not imagine a better real estate agent. Matt made a nightmare of a process go as smoothly as possible based off of his experience, expertise, availability and excellent communication. He stood by us from start to finish and he showed time and time again that he is professional and knowledgeable about real estate. He shows great patience and quickly addresses the concerns and needs of his clients. He puts his clients before himself and that is something I did not expect to find in a real estate agent. Consider yourself warned if you chose to go with a different real estate agent.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Pittsburgh, PA.

Couldn't ask for a better, more knowledgable agent to help me through the process of selling our home. We received multiple offers after only a couple of days on the market, and we sold our house for over asking price! Very responsive, always answered my calls and never had to wait for him to get back to me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a Pittsbugh area agent, and will certainly use him again.

Bought a home in 2013 in Butler, Clay Township, PA 16001.

Matt was matched to my husband and I through the USAA Movers Advantage program and was awesome throughout our search for our first home! Matt helped us narrow down the area and types of homes we wanted to look at. We never once felt that Matt was trying to push us toward one property or steer us away from anything. He was always easy to reach, either by phone, text, or e-mail. After looking at numerous houses, Matt was most helpful once we started the process of putting in an offer on a house. He answered all of our questions and instilled us with confidence that no matter what, he would always do what was in our best interest.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Renfrew, PA.

Matt's the best realtor we've ever worked with -- and we've worked with at least half a dozen, all of whom were supposedly top-notch. Matt and his office staff went above and beyond to sell a property that we'd been trying to sell for years -- and got us our asking price in record time, with far less stress than we anticipated. Though we had a great house to sell, four years of previous efforts in all directions had given us nothing but frustration -- and believe me, we'd tried everything-- from traditional listing with major-name realty companies, to the FSBO approach, to minimalist realty company participation where they enter your property on the regional multi-list and then you do everything else. So in the wake of previous offers that had fallen through and major disenchantment with the entire industry, we decided to go with Matt Ohlsson of Coldwell Banker, mostly on the strength of his can-do attitude, obvious knowledge of the market and overall positive approach. We soon realized that he hadn't made a single prediction that wasn't coming true and hadn't promised a smidgen more than he was ready to deliver. To our amazement, within three and a half weeks of the listing, we had an offer for the asking price. A few serious bumps in the road still arose between the purchase agreement and the closing, but Matt was unflappable throughout and consistently spot-on in his advice. With his expert guidance, we negotiated all the potential pitfalls and closed on time, with all our ducks in a row.

Bought a home in 2013 in Rochester, East Rochester, PA 15074.

Matt helped me find and buy my home almost 4 years ago and I could not be happier! He will answer all calls/texts/emails at any hour of the night/day. He is extremely informative and helpful. He assisted with finding a home inspector, taking care of approval for the mortgage and helping with negotiations. We closed on our home in less than 30 days! Matt has continued to prove his loyalty and dedication by working with some of my friends and family. When we are ready to move to a bigger home there is only one person I would call to sell our home and assist with the purchase of a new one... Matt! Thanks again for all your hard work!!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Central Lawrenceville, Pittsburgh, PA.

Matt and the other professionals he reccommended were key in helping my husband and I buy our first home. I called them the "dream team" for most of the process. Everything went so smoothly that I still don't understand the problems that almost everyone else I know encounter. Find a network of professionals and listen to them. Matt is one of those professionals!
