House hunting is not an easy process… at least, it wasn’t for me. It took at solid 6 months before I found my home and I worked with Matt for 5 of those months. Through laughter and (literall y) tears, feelings of hope and hopelessness, Matt was always a present, positive, motivated, diligent, spirit-lifting, encouraging, understanding, patient force who, most of all, was on my side no matter what. These mere words don’t give enough justice to the amount of appreciation and high level of regard I have for Matt. I toured over 130 homes before Matt’s persistence and well planned negotiations landed me into the place I now call home. Matt’s background in appraisal work provided invaluable information as we toured homes, giving me a realist idea of what homes I was interested in may need in terms of renovations and/or required maintenance. He is a fair-minded professional who always had my best interest in mind, keeping me mindful of my budget and providing education about steps involved in securing the loan to needed inspections to escrow to closing the loan. I don’t bode well with surprises, and Matt made certain I knew what to expect throughout the entire process. Matt has maintained contact with me since the close of my home to answer any remaining questions I may have. He genuinely cares about his clients and has become a person I greatly trust. I can’t say “Thank you” enough, Matt, for guiding me to find the right home, in the right location and negotiating the right price for my family and me.
