Kathy from Tahoe City

I initially reached out to Matt 2 years before I ended up buying a condo in Tahoe City. He was very responsive and emailed me back with his phone number and an invitation to call him within about 20 minutes. I called and we talked for a while and I could tell he knew Tahoe City and he knew real estate. He thoughtfully answered my questions about the various neighborhoods in Tahoe, the beaches, the various condo complexes and the HOAs. What impressed me at the time was that he was willing to give me advice and spend time on the phone even though I was up front with him that I probably wasn't interested in buying at that time. It was that willingness to spend time on the phone 2 years ago that stuck with me and made me call him again two years later when I was ready to buy. Again, Matt emailed me immediately, we talked, we worked together and I closed on a condo in March 2019. I would highly recommend Matt to anyone who is looking to either buy or sell in Tahoe.

Matt Smith is an absolute GEM! In a small town, it is really hard to navigate all of the agents and homes out there. He is so laid back, knowledgeable on the town and destination and more importantly made the process of buying our first home stress free and FUN. How many people can say they have FUN while buying a home in such a difficult location!? Well, we had a total blast navigating this road with Matt Smith. I would recommend him a million times over. He has such a good heart and good energy about him. Thank you Matt, you made our first experience buying a home, positive and happy!

Matt was a amazing realtor for us during the entire process. He had a great knowledge of the Tahoe area when we were trying to figure out what area to buy a house. He was always extremely responsive to any concerns or questions we had along the process. We highly recommend using him as your realtor when you are looking to buy or sell a house. Thank you Matt for helping us get our dream home!
