What do Clients Say?
Matt is absolutely amazing. We had the pleasure of working with Matt for a condo purchase in 2016, and the sale of that same condo in 2018. He is honest, professional, funny, and smart.Matt helped us buy our first condo, and gave us lots of information that we didn't know to help make the whole process easy and as stress free as possible. He is knowledgeable about the city and was great at negotiating on our behalf. When we had to relocate for work, we knew we wanted to sell our place with Matt, and we are so grateful that we did. He gave us honest advice about what we needed to do, and was more than accommodating as we moved across the country and dealt with all the other stresses that came with that. We essentially gave him our keys on the day of our flight and he took over from there.He was always there if we needed to reach him and made two potentially stressful experiences very easy.I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in Chicago and I can guarantee if we ever are back, we will be using Matt for any real estate needs.Liz R. - IT professional
Matt is exactly the type of realtor you want in your corner. He knows when to hang back and let you talk through your thoughts, but he also knows when to jump in and express his opinion. He is extremely enjoyable to work with and to be around. Highly recommended.Ross K. - V.P of Client Services, Restaurant Software Development Company
We bought our first home with Matt and he was exceedingly patient and knowledgeable. As first time home buyers, we appreciated Matt's block-to-block knowledge of the city and his professional manner in dealing with other agents. Since then we have listed one home with him and purchased another. His experience and knowledge of the city is second to none.Mike W. - Attorney
I had the opportunity to work with Matt when I first entered the real estate market in 2008. He provided invaluable information related to geographical markets, demographics and properties, all of which helped me to develop the business plan for my company. Three years in, I am still following several of the principles that Matt helped me to develop and to put in place. Matt also went above and beyond the call of duty, helping with more than the typical scope of a realtor’s service. I recall closing on one of my first houses in the winter and having forgotten to change the utilities into my name. When I realized that the heat was turned off, Matt was there with portable heaters to help keep the house warm and the pipes un-frozen and worked with me to streamline the re-connection process. It is without reserve that I can recommend Matt to anyone looking for a real estate agent in the Chicagoland area.Andy B. - Luxury Home Builder
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Matt on multiple real estate transactions, both buying and selling, since moving to Chicago five years ago. I met him based on the recommendation of a co-worker and he lived up to his reputation. His integrity and knowledge of the Chicago market notwithstanding, what really sets Matt apart is his insight into the nuances of a deal: saying and doing the right things to keep the buyer and seller moving towards closing. In this difficult environment, that expertise proved invaluable.I would recommend Matt’s work as a realtor to anyone looking to buy or sell in Chicago.John M. - Investment Banker
