"Matthew is simply amazing. I was a first time homebuyer, and he made the process easy for me. He made sure I understood what I was looking for in each home I visited, what I was signing, and how to navigate the process. During the negotiation phase he helped me save a lot of time and money by avoiding costs by reading the sellers. He was extremely responsive and took the time to make sure I was taken care of. I highly recommend him." - Patrick

★★★★★
"We couldn't say enough about our experience with Matthew as our listing agent.
Matthew has a deep knowledge of the industry and a relentless mind for details, which is pretty much an ideal combination for any agent. Moreover, Matthew works with integrity and care for everyone in his network -- especially his clients.
We're thrilled with the offer we received and know we could not received it with anything less than a heroic level of support and guidance.

★★★★★
"Matthew helped us through the preparation, listing, showing, and selling process for our Seattle home as we moved to the Chicago area. Matthew did a lot of work developing a detailed schedule for repairs, cleaning, and listing our home and also did his homework researching a listing price. At first we thought Matthew was asking us to do too much work preparing and staging our house, but given the uncertainty of COVID times we did what he asked - and we are glad we did. Our house sold in four days with competing offers, and greatly helped with the timing of buying our new house in a new city. Matthew was helpful and insightful throughout the selling process."

★★★★★
"The process of selling a house with Matthew was better than we could have hoped. He was diligent in identifying appropriate comps and effective in guiding us through preparing our house for showing - including creating a useful timeline, connecting us with high quality service providers, and coordinating with a stager who worked within our constraints and made our house look phenomenal! The end result was that our house sold in four days with multiple offers. We were delighted to accept an offer well above our asking price." - Josh

★★★★★
"Matthew went above and beyond from initial consultation throughout the closing of the sale of our home in Queen Anne. He was very responsive and was available via phone, email, and text the entire time."

About Matthew

There is no substitute for what you learn when you’re young. When I was a kid, my father bought and sold a curious assortment of Real Estate: a rambler in the suburbs; a farm-house on 100 acres; a fairytale Tudor in a swanky neighborhood; a mountain home in Colorado. As Dad drove me around neighborhoods, I developed an instinctive sense for value. And as Dad put me to work on projects, I learned what is behind the walls! I continued the hands-on work as an adult. I worked on the crew for a high-end Seattle builder constructing a Queen Anne view home, and I remodeled my own homes in Ballard and Magnolia.

Before long, I discovered that my house-knowledge and my strong communication skills could combine to make me an exceptional Realtor. I now bring all my skills and abilities to my Real Estate clients.

For Sellers, I have a profound ability to find “the story” in your house. People are not motivated to purchase four walls and a roof. They are motivated to enter into a story where a home creates a backdrop for life. My skill is discerning the best story your house can tell. Everything about your house—location, condition, placement on the lot—contributes to this story. Everyone on my team, from stagers to photographers, is coached to produce this story with perfection. The results are extremely successful for my sellers—both personally and financially.

For Buyers, I am a passionate advocate and a caring coach. I create a process where you learn to ask the right questions: of yourselves, of the house, of me. I will teach you everything I know so you can decide confidently whether a house will truly advance your story--not only meeting your needs, but moving your life forward. Once you’ve made that decision, I will hold nothing back in negotiating on your behalf. For my buyers, this results in a confident, shrewd, well-coached, and (as much as possible) stress-free purchase!

I have experienced first-hand the guts of a house, and the risks and rewards of purchasing Real Estate. The best proof I can give of my value comes through reviews of my clients. Please see my reviews below. They are from actual clients who were once in your position, deciding who to work with. I will deliver the same value to you!
