Happy Clients...
Mats enthusiasm and commitment to selling our property was excellent. We were well informed throughout the selling process and thought he was always trying to get the best outcome for us as the vendor. He achieved a great result for us and we would thoroughly recommend him to those wishing to sell their property.
Blane Smith
Mat has all the qualities required to be an exceptionally successful property salesperson. He has a lovely personality which makes him very approachable and easy to connect and communicate with. Mat has a sound knowledge of the housing market and was able to give us the information required to make a decision about the pricing of the property we sold.
Wilna Human
Mat was always professional in his approach and manner. Always willing to offer his advice and knowledge of the markets position. He was always there to answer any questions that arose during the sale process. Very professional and yet approachable and down-to-earth. An awesome guy, no hesitation in recommending him to others.
Jason Gill
Mat was confident, friendly, approachable and professional. He took the stress out of selling my house and I felt that I was in very safe hands. The whole process was a lot less stressful than previous experiences and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is wishing to list their property.
Barbara Stimson
We found Mat to be exactly what we wanted in an agent. He was enthusiastic, honest and did what he said he was going to. He knew the market and sold our home in 5 days at a great price - this is the easiest sale of a home I have ever had. Thanks Mat! You made it easy and a pleasant experience.
Mike & Delice Jensen
Mat was absolutely great. We had been trying for about 6 months to sell our house privately, without success. Mat came up with a "cunning plan" and remarketed our house, with great photos, super write up, and regular open homes. The open homes were well attended, and resulted in a sale at a very acceptable price within just two months. Mat kept us in the loop the whole time with weekly reports and multiple text messages. He is a very personable young man with superb interpersonal skills, and we would most definitely highly recommend him to anyone wishing to sell their home.
Sonja Whiston & Martin Konings
Mat was absolutely brilliant - enthusiastic, calm and professional during the whole process. He didn't panic, even when I did. He's very approachable, personable, and respectful, and has been relentlessly helpful throughout, including post-sale challenges, e.g. finding a new property, finding an interim rental, referring us on rental applications. He's completely changed my (embarrassingly stereotyped) opinion of real estate agents.
Karen Bern & Sandra Scott
Matt was professional and yet personable, relating well to us and others. He made the sale easy for us. He gave us good advice in the beginning to prepare our house for sale. He was willing to go the extra mile bringing people to the property. His high level of experience was evident in how he handled himself and the sale. He showed care and interest at every stage of the process eg. careful selection of photographers and photo's, and advertising material. The auction was made relaxed and easy for us, and for bidding customers.
Rosy Butcher
We conduct most of our communication via txt and email, relying on a high degree of professionalism - this could be tricky, but Mat hasn't dropped the ball once.

This is our second property handled by Mat. He is a very pro-active and professional agent, never pushy, always polite, always responsive.
