I needed to short sale my town home. I lived in a development that was less than half finished when the builder went out of business. The property had dropped from $670,000 to a value around $300,000. It was a very stressful time in my life and as a single woman, not only did I need someone who could not only handle EVERYTHING but could answer my many, many questions and be my support system. Guiseppe was that person. Even though his office was based more than an hour away from my property, but he was still available to me whenever I called or needed to see him. He was there for all steps. He took complete control. He made the entire transaction much less stressful than it could have been. I even moved out of the state prior to the sale being complete and he took care of everything. I would recommend Guiseppe to anyone who needed a Real Estate Professional who was in touch with what was happening in the market even if it was not in close proximity of his office. With Guiseppe, I felt as if I was his only and most important client. I know that was not the case, but his knowledge, availability and attentiveness made me feel as though it was the case. He truly eased my stress.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in North Hayward, Hayward, CA.

Guiseppe is truly a Short Sales pro. Being a first-timer to purchasing a short sale property, we were quite wary of a prolonged process. Guiseppe makes it painless and efficient. From negotiation with the lender to ensuring a timely closing and taking possession of the property, Guiseppe and his team handle the entire process smoothly. We're so thankful for having him as our agent.

Sold a home in 2013 in Blossom Valley, San Jose, CA 95123.

I had 2 properties that I wanted to sell, but had not made a firm decision. Mr. Matese heard about it and contacted me. I explained that I was not ready then. He suggested that he could help when I was ready. I implored him to call me on and off about this. Guiseppe kept his word, and for the duration of about 2 years, he called occasionally. So, when I got myself in financial straits, he was at hand to help. He traveled about 65 miles to Salinas, and spent about 5 hours with me. During the ensuing discussion, he listened intently, asked pertinent questions, addressed my fears and concerns, and noted these down on paper. He assured me that he could definitely help sell the two properties. Upon subsequent visits, with the aid of graphs, charts, calculations, newspaper clippings, he explained in detail his strategy to sell them. He stuck to this, and 'produced the goods' at the right time. During this period, he kept me informed, either himself or his staff, about the status of the sale. He did this even when I was away from the US in Ghana. He kept me abreast with everything from the beginning. I did not have any concerns getting into a business relationship with Mr. Matese, By about his third visit to my home and subsequent phone calls, I knew Guiseppe was honest, sincere, and I could trust him. My wife and I have been happy with the outcome of the sale. I admire this gentleman for his empathy, his unassuming attitude, his listening ear, and his excellent sense of humor. To me Mr. Guiseppe Matese is a caring friend.

Guiseppe Matese had the challenge of dealing with the short sale of my home and handled it well! He informed me when I didn't understand the process and helped me to be patient when that was called for.

Sold a home in 2013.

Guiseppe sold my home in such a short time! Service was exceptional, and the staff more than exceeded any expectations I had. Their personal service extends far beyond any other realtor service I have had in the past. They proved themselves worthy of the highest standard of excellence, and it doesn't stop with the close of escrow! Quite some time after the sale of my home, I contacted them regarding a issue with the title company; and they immediately resolved the issue within minutes. My only hope is that others emulate their stardard of service. You could not even imagine how pleased I am with both Guiseppe and his wonderful staff, and I hold them in the highest possible regard.

Respectfully,

Nancy Brennan

Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Alum Rock-East Foothills, San Jose, CA.

I met Guiseppe over the phone. I had taken my house off the market in 2008 because of lack of interest in the property. Guiseppe called and talked to me about putting it back in the market suggesting alternative pricing. He listened to me and over the next few years answered all my questions. Eventually, I listed with him and was able to sell at a price based on his experience with the market. I have to say that his knowledge, integrity and his willingness to listen were my reasons for listing with him. The property sold with little stress on my part. His office handled the process, updated me along the way, answered all my questions and even sent brownies to help with the stress. Selling was a big step for me and having someone understanding and sincere in helping me get through it was invaluable.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Downtown, San Jose, CA.

Guiseppe found us in a tough spot. We had the banks threatening foreclosure and we were unable to complete a loan modification successfully. He came in and turned our situation around very quickly. He saved our house and was able to keep us exempt from paying taxes on this situation. He saved our financial lives, its as simple as that! Without his help, I'm not sure where we would be. We desperately did not want to lose our house and he helped us achieve that while also getting us back on our feet.

Thanks for your help and I will be recommending Guiseppe to anyone in the same situation.
