CLIENT REVIEWS

"Matthew went above and beyond the call of duty to help get my house ready for the new owners."

Terry McCoy


"Matt is skilled, shrewd, talented, and honest. I could not recommend him more highly!"

Gregory Rice


"Matthew listed and sold our last house with remarkable results! He succeeded in securing our dream home for us too! He clearly showed us how to optimally prepare our home for the market & made sure we always knew our best options in the process. Matthew also helps us make real estate investments. He really knows what he is doing and I'm glad he is on our side."

E. Olson


“Matthew and his team were a delight to work with from beginning to end! Real estate is a stressful process, and we doubled up with Matthew to help sell and buy our new home! We were not disappointed. Everyone was friendly and professional in the smooth times and the rough times; they understood our high anxieties and even helped to chill us out when the process became too much for us. We couldn’t have done this without Matthew and team. I can only give my highest recommendations for them whether you are buying or selling your home. Matthew and his team are hands down the best!”

Seller & Buyer


"Matthew was referred to us for our move to OR and we are so fortunate to have has his skills and expertise working on our side. Our home purchase had some unforeseen complications, but nothing was too big for Matthew to negotiate, resolve, and fix. In fact, he would report a snafu to us and in the next breath explain how he solved it. His knowledge of OR real estate laws and contracts is only surpassed by his familiarity with the area. As a native to the region, he was on top of everything from traffic patterns to taxes to community amenities. I can not imagine how we would have found such a lovely home without his assistance. His negotiations at closing not only saved us money on purchase price and lender fees, but ensured repairs were competed in a timely manner. I will recommend him to anyone buying or selling in the area. Bonus! He just completed his credentials to work in the Washington state."

Christina Hoskin


​”I told my wife last night that Matthew is the kind of agent I would want if I was selling or buying. He doesn’t miss a thing!”

Agent Representing Opposing Party


"When we started our house-buying process, neither Liz or I knew anything about buying a house. Matthew took us through each step, and made sure we understood what we were doing, as well as what we needed to do next. Each time we viewed a house with him, he would point out things that might need to be fixed, or things he felt we should be concerned about. Knowing Matthew was helping us made buying our house significantly less stressful, and he was absolutely delightful to work with. It really felt like he always had our best interests in mind, and he made a stressful and difficult process much easier and more fun."

Michael Lorenzo


“The whole process was made easy thanks to his attentiveness and knowledge of the local market.  He was also so quick to respond to any of my e-mails, phone calls, and texts. I can’t tell you how much I appreciated his willingness to work around my work schedule to look at homes.  When we finally put in an offer, he was a master at negotiations and I feel I got an excellent deal on my home, thanks to him.”

Busy Professional Made Happy Client


"I highly recommend Matthew if you are in the market to buy in Portland. As a first time home buyer, and investor I couldn't have found a better person to work with. He was very clear about the process from the beginning and maintained good communication through every step. Matthew is very good at what he does and he is more than just a real estate agent. I got to a point of frustration with the tough market and I was concerned about being able to get a property that would fit my needs. Matthew was able to guide me through my decisions while truly having my best interest as a priority. When I am ready for my next investment I will be working with Matthew for sure."

Eric Sands


“I didn’t think home ownership was within reach. Thanks to Matthew, who helped walk us through the entire process seamlessly, our dream is reality. He was well connected, very personable, and knowledgeable.”

Sustainable Power Professional


"Matthew helped me sell my home in Canby and purchase a house in Portland about two years ago. At first, I was going to wait three of four months to get that done. Matthew convinced me to move quickly and I'm so glad I did! I love my new house. I love the location. It's been a great investment! If I had waited, I probably would have been priced out of this location. I'm grateful Matthew had my best interest at heart, knew the market, and searched diligently to find me the perfect place. He's a great guy to work with and I highly recommend him!"

Don Gierach


“As a first time investor, I couldn’t have found a better person to work with. Matthew was able to guide me through my decisions while truly having my best interest as a priority. When I am ready for my next investment I will be working with Matthew for sure.

​ Mechanical Engineer


"I recently enlisted Matthew as my real estate agent when we were looking to purchase our first home and I couldn't be happier!!! Having never been through the home buying process before, Matthew was great at explaining every step along the way and making sure I fully understood. There are many real estate agents in the area to chose from, but I knew after meeting Mathew for the first time, he was the agent for me. He's extremely kind and so pleasant to work with and I knew he would be someone I could put all of my trust in during the most important, biggest purchase I have ever made. Matthew did an excellent job of getting and idea of exactly what type of home we were looking for, and his suggestions for possible homes to look at were spot on. The whole process was made easy thanks to him due to his attentiveness and knowledge of the local market. He was also so quick to respond to any of my e-mails, phone calls, and texts and I can't tell you how much I appreciated his willingness to work around my work schedule to look at homes. When we finally put in an offer, he was a master at negotiations and I feel I got an excellent deal on my home, thanks to him. Overall, I cannot say enough good things about working with Matthew and I'd recommend him to all. I can say for sure I'll be working with him in the future when I'm ready to sell my house and move again, although he helped me secure such a great house that I don't think that may be for quite some time."

Phil Svabik-Seror


"While looking for our first home Matthew helped educate us on the process and guided us to make smart and informed choices; wanting us to find not just a home, but our home. I would recommend Matthew to anyone who is looking for a dedicated professional with a personal approach to the home buying processing!"

Derick Black


"Matthew will work hard for you and get you where you need to be. You can trust him to sell or help you buy your home."
