What people are saying about working with Matt
The experience my wife and I had with Matthew in the purchase of our wonderful home couldn't have been better. Matthew had been working with us for almost 2 years, walking us through every step of the way; from getting paperwork together to get pre-approved, to finding us the perfect home to match our specific personalities and needs. Once we found the home we wanted there started the whirlwind of negotiations with the seller, gathering paperwork for the loan, and the emotional ups and downs involved with the most important purchase of our lives. The patience, knowledge, and willingness to fight for our better interests is what most impressed us most about Matthew's performance. Escrow has closed and we are living in our new home and Matthew continues to be involved; offering advice on home improvements, referncing contractors, and even taking time to come to our house to show me how to remove a window for repair. He takes pride in his work and neighborhood. I highly recommend Matthew! - Jim Schwartz
His customer service and attentiveness to his clients needs is rare in this industry. I've dealt with enough flaky realtors who do not deliver. Matthews knowledge of real estate is as impressive as his ability to make complicated concepts understandable. This is my second home purchase with him, he can be trusted with one of the most important purchases you’ll ever make. - Beau Janzen
This was our second time working with Matt (our recent purchase was our second house), and as always, he was great! We had a gas leak in our main line right after we moved into our new place and had to have the whole line replaced; Matt came and helped us throughout the ordeal. Most real estate agents would not do that, but Matthew was kind enough to go the extra mile. During the purchasing process, he explained confusing forms and dealt with our moments of frustration with grace and wit. He was a pleasure to work with, and I cannot recommend him enough! - Janae Dimick
We recently sold our home in Floral Park and then purchased a home in N. Tustin. During our Floral Park ownership, Matthew helped us get the home on the Historic Registry and a valuable Mills Act contract. Our property taxes went way down, plus when it came time to sell the home, the Mills Act was a big part of the home’s appeal. Our unique home didn’t sell immediately, but Matthew and I were in constant contact about feedback, timing, and the market. I never felt pressure to reduce the price for a quick sale. In the end we got a great price from a strong buyer and Matthew was there every step of the way. After identifying my dream house to purchase, Matthew worked behind the scenes to find out what would make my offer stand out as we knew there would be competition. It turned out there were two other offers, both all-cash. We talked strategy, Matthew negotiated fiercely, and I got the house (my 4th purchased with him)! The listing agent let us know that Matthew’s reputation and temperament were a big factor in getting my offer selected over the others. I think in this day and age of TV personalities and influencers, what you really need is a trustworthy agent who will fight for you when the need arises, but also have the right attitude, ego, and temperament to negotiate and navigate the big challenges. - Mona Shah
Well, Matthew was just terrific in every way. We were looking for a home in the "Freedom Homes" area of Costa Mesa and we could not have had a better agent for this. His knowledge of, and passion for the area is really incredible. He has a strong network of contacts and his service ethic is great. He was ready and willing to do everything necessary to make sure all of our needs were met and all of the bases were covered. We honestly can't think of how our experience could have been any better! - Norm Shaughnessy
As first-time home buyers, we were a bit nervous about the experience, but Matthew made it a lot of fun. He was very patient and thorough throughout the process - starting with finding the right house and putting in an offer, to completing loan/escrow process (with his help, we were able to close in 30 days)! He even got us a great housewarming gift and joined us for a toast the night we got our keys. - Paul Anderson
My wife, Mona, and I would urge anyone who is curious about what type of homes are out there for any budget, to give Matthew a call. We consider him more than our agent, but our good friend.
Matthew is quickly responsive, extremely knowledgeable, and a hardworking negotiator. My husband and I often commented to each other how lucky we were during a sometimes arduous purchase to have Matt available to answer our concerns. Still, after the sale of the house, Matt continues to recommend good, honest, and local professionals to help straighten things up after inspection. Most agents we've met randomly at open houses seem to be disconnected with their community or families that walk through their open houses, but it's obvious that Matt is in tune with the uniquenesses that come with each family. Highly recommend Matt!
- Darla Scarpella Schwartz
Working with Matt in buying our first home was such an enjoyable experience. He was professional, knowledgeable, patient, and responsive. He always made time to answer any questions that we had, whether it be over the phone or in person. He made great suggestions throughout the process, and supported us in every decision that we made. Buying a home for the first time can be a very intimidating process. However, Matt made the process go very smoothly. I would highly recommend working with him in the future. - Jackie Martin
Where to start! Matt was an absolute professional and a great pleasure to work with. Besides being a professional he was very caring and concerned about our needs and wants. He walked us through every step of the process and did an excellent job maximizing our dollars. Matt never pushed me to lower my price, in fact he was spot on when it came to putting a value on our home. I would and will recommend Matt to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. I don't think you will find anyone that is a professional and integral as Matt Fletcher. - Mike Burger
We began our process of buying a home more than 9 months ago. Throughout this journey, Matthew has been absolutely OUTSTANDING. He was always available to answer any questions that we had either through email, text, or phone. At the same time, we never felt pressured into buying a home. When we did find the home that checked all of our boxes, we immediately jumped on this opportunity. Matt walked us through the entire process: from negotiating the price, through the inspections, price re-negotiations, dealing with our bank, escrow close, etc. he has been there every step of the way. To put a cherry on top, Matt helped us rent out our prior residence! - Kirill Fayerman
We met the former owner of the house after moving in, and he told us the reason we won the bidding war during the offer process, was Matthew - he was always on top of things and never pushy. He did a great job selling us as his clients to the owners. He was always very professional and knowledgable, and very enjoyable to work with. I recommend Matthew to anyone listing or buying! - Kathy Strate
Matt is an extremely professional, honest, and smart realtor. He strives to do what is best for his clients. You can truly tell he cares more about you finding a home that meets your needs than closing a sale. He is actively engaged in every step of the home buying process, and goes above and beyond to help you get the home you want. He is reachable at all times of day, and always communicates when he is unavailable. His communication helped ease this extremely stressful time of life for my wife and I. He broke down every step of the process multiple times, and would not allow us to move forward until we had a clear and concise understanding of what was going on. I would recommend matt to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. He is awesome.
- Zack Arant
Since we were new home owners applying for FHA financing, we knew it would be challenging. Matthew was tireless in his efforts to find us alternatives to get both our offer and loan through. He also made sure there weren't any unusual liens or other discrepancies attached to the homes we were looking at that would cause us problems down the road. We've also been very impressed by how thorough and helpful he's been throughout the process. The kind of guy who will "meet you where you are". Definitely worth recommending to any of our friends in the future. - Heather Primo-Morales
We have been absolutely blown away by how amazing you have been through this whole process. It has been an honor working with you and getting to know you. - Laura Fayerman
Matt Went above and beyond what he was required to do. He was always quick to respond to any inquiry from us. He has an extensive knowledge of the real estate market and legalities which enabled him to give us excellent and correct advice. Every hurdle we encountered he helped us to get over successfully. I would highly recommend him to anyone as either buyer or seller. - Susan Blush
Matthew is always professional; he is knowledgeable but not pushy, does his homework on the comps, is honest & makes the often difficult process of both buying & selling seamless. He works closely with a few mortgage lenders & escrow agents which I used and was very happy with. Matthew goes above & beyond; recommending contractors, carpet cleaners, window washers & donation groups that would pick up large items & then offering to be there when they come! He listed & helped me sell home furnishings. I've never met a Realtor with more integrity than Matthew Fletcher. Give him a call today! - Gail Bireline
If there was a way to rate Matthew 20 stars, instead of five, I would. Matthew had been on the hunt for the perfect home for me, for a long time. Once the perfect home came up, he was instrumental not only in all aspects of the negotiation, but went way beyond the call of duty. There was a significant list of things I wanted to get done prior to my move-in, and Matthew organized, coordinated and personally oversaw every aspect of the post-sale repairs and improvements. He has also assisted my mother to sell two condominiums in the past, with the same attention to customer satisfaction. I recommend him without any reservation. He is the absolute BEST. - Michael Harris
Matt is a very organized and detailed Agent who was very professional and provided sound advice in all aspects of the transaction. He prepared the property for sale by having inspection reports completed prior to marketing so the buyer could quickly understand all the issues with this older home. He represented both seller and buyer in a very honest and proper manner and both seller and buyer were highly satisfied at closing. Thank you Matt! - Mike D. Smith
Matthew demonstrated unmatched professionalism, knowledge, skill, and most of all patience and persistence in representing my wife and myself as buyers seeking to relocate to Orange County. Our search for a suitable home lasted for 15 months and resulted in three contracts for purchase, each of which was canceled at our request. Throughout the process Matthew maintained an exceptionally positive outlook, despite our reluctance to follow through on the purchase of a home. Ultimately we reached the decision not to relocate and ended our home search. Throughout this process, Matthew impressed us with his ability to understand and support our decisions, including our decision to remain in our current home in Las Vegas. I am pleased to highly recommend Matthew as a Realtor or in any other capacity he may choose to pursue. - Robert Spencer
Matthew is absolutely amazing. He was extremely accommodating with my wife and I as we remotely searched for a home over 500 miles away. He would prioritize any properties that we had interest in and would rush out to make sure that he provided us with a remote walkthrough. All the while providing educated and valuable feedback and advice. He is very humble, but also knowledgeable. I truly think that we would have given up in frustration if not for Matthew. Being a first time homebuyer, we had a lot of anxiety around buying our first home, especially in the middle of a pandemic, but Matt was fantastic in answering any questions we had and guiding us successfully through the purchase process. Honestly I can not say enough good things and I absolutely plan to work with Matt again. - Rupert Harwood
Matthew Fletcher is truly a first-rate realtor. He did a phenomenal job staging and showing our house on Lido Island. His communication throughout the process was clear and instant. Matthew was able to negotiate top dollar for our property, and sold it within just a few days while other similar properties remain on the market. I cannot say enough about Matthew's investment in selling our property. We felt valued as clients as he guided us through the process. You will love working with him. - Robert Blackman
Matt was exceptional in purchasing our dream home. He was kind, patient, very professional, prompted and went above and beyond his duties as a realtor. My husband and I have known Matt as a friend for a long time but what we truly appreciated about him was that he kept his professionalism at all times and was accommodating to our needs and to our busy schedule. Never once did he make us feel like we were second in line or too busy for us. I gave Matt a list of my wants and needs in a house about 2 years ago, and it was super meticulous, and he remembered that list and found our home for us. We weren't even looking for a home to be honest! That's how amazing he is! He helped us negotiate pricing, went to the city to pull all the permits for the renovations from previous owners to make sure that it was all approved and signed off. He proactively called the school districts out side of our district to find additional information for us. He was there for every inspection and after the transaction had closed, he's still working on a couple of items for us. Thank you Matt for all of your help, you're one of a kind, truly in the top 1% club of realtors in our opinion. - Susan Broaddus
Matthew helped me purchase my condo four years ago as a first time home buyer. After seeing some of the sales in my complex recently, I contacted Matthew and he helped me crunch some numbers to see what I could afford. About a week after I listed my condo I had accepted a great offer and was also in escrow for my own purchase. However, we hit a speed bump when the buyers' cancelled because they had issues with their financing. Matthew remained extremely optimistic and kept me calm when I felt like everything was unraveling since my purchase was contingent on the sale of my condo. With his persistence, he found another buyer within a few days and we were back on track. Both transactions after that point went smoothly and we closed them last week. Matthew's responsiveness is the reason I first used him as an agent. I was working with an agent from Redfin but she lacked a sense of urgency and didn't seem to care about the questions I asked her. I contacted Matthew because he was the agent of a property I was interested in. While that didn't end up fitting my needs, I ended up asking him if he would be my agent because he was more informative in our short meeting than the days that I had spent with Redfin. He will truly help you every step of the way whether you need assistance with your loan or if you need a recommendation for a handy man once the repair requests come in. Matthew's unparalleled service will help you achieve your real estate dreams. - Cynthia Hsiao
So glad to have met Matthew a few years ago at a listing in Mesa Verde. He is a great negotiator who executes highly effective tried and true strategies. A true professional. His customer service and attentiveness to his clients needs is rare in this industry. I've dealt with enough flaky realtors who do not deliver. Matthews knowledge of real estate is as impressive as his ability to make complicated concepts understandable. This is my second home purchase with him, he can be trusted with one of the most important purchases you’ll ever make. You have nothing to lose, your search is over, contact him right away and rest at ease that you are in good hands. - Beau Janzen
This is my third time working with Matthew and his level of local real estate knowledge is unmatched! He fully understands the intricacies of each west side neighborhood that we were buying & selling in which really helped smooth out the stressful process of buying / selling a home. Matthew is thorough and very easy to work with, and I would recommend him to any friends or family that are looking for a realtor in the area. - Kiva Slack
Covid-19 hit, I had a lapse in work and it became clear to me that I wanted to sell my house and move closer to my family. It was such a daunting decision as my home was my oasis and I have been in it for 19 years. Over the years I had received fliers and many Real Estate Agents had reached out, but something drew me to Matthew. After reading all of the positive reviews I thought no one can be that good. I was wrong -- I made an appointment with him, he came donning a mask and listened carefully to my wishes. Every step of the way he kept me informed and gave me solid advice. He kept things simple and was very transparent. There is a reason for all the 5 star reviews. He got me my asking price (highest in the history of my neighborhood), was able to negotiate a closing date that allowed me to finish a project I was on, and guided me through every step of the process. It is without hesitation I recommend him to anyone buying or selling a house. - Debbie Johnson
If you need a real estate rep that is from another world in efficiencies, understanding, thoroughness and in depth knowledge of local real estate, as well as the market on a macro level - look no further than Matthew. Just off the charts great.
He helped us find our house - post closing helped immensely with getting the house ready for move in, when he could have easily just moved on. It was above and beyond.
- Dan Felter
Working with Matt was a wonderful experience. It was obvious he prides himself on being a true member of his community, which is a unique quality for a real estate agent, and one we very much appreciated. He had extensive knowledge of the neighborhood, was extremely responsive to any questions or concerns we had, and basically made our dream of owning a home in Southern California a reality. Double Thumbs Up! - Ryan McIntosh
Matthew fletcher was great as my representative. He negotiated everything and was always keeping me apprised of our ' next move'. - Denise Knoblauch
I will use him again as my realtor.
Matthew was very responsive and knowledgeable during the process of selling our home. He was friendly and helpful and always went out of his way to help in any way needed. Would highly recommend him to anyone who is buying or selling a home. - Ed Bolanos
We had a great experience working with Matthew! We were first-time buyers and Matthew was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. His extensive knowledge made us feel comfortable and at ease, during what could have been a stressful time. We highly recommend Matthew!
- Julie Richardson
We were so lucky to have Matthew as our agent, for both as a buyer's and seller's side. He is everything you dream for your agent: He is very kind, smart, thorough, attentive, responsive, and experienced. I'd recommend Matthew to anyone who wants to make the stressful process of selling/buying a real estate into a breeze. We are very grateful for his professionalism and kindness. Thank you, Matthew! - Maki Kaijo
Matthew is a truly exceptional real estate agent. He helped my wife and I sell our old home while purchasing a new one. This process could have been quite challenging (particularly the timing); however, with Matthew's help we were able to coordinate both transactions quickly and easily. When listing our house, Matthew advised on an appropriate price, arranged (and paid for) professional photography, and carried out useful strategies for targeting buyers. When facilitating the purchase of our new home, Matthew helped in innumerable ways, taking care of everything from advising on the appropriate amount of our offer to vetting potential inspectors. He is truly a dedicated agent who really listens to his clients and works tirelessly to help them achieve their goals. I can't recommend him highly enough! - Steve Westbrook
Matt not only helped us buy our first home, but also was able to help us sell our home. He was really great at informing us of our options, was extremely responsive, readily kept us posted on potential leads for homes to buy, and was instrumental in getting us the best price for our home when we were ready to sell. - Jed Primo-Morales
Matt went out of his way to hire and oversee the building of a brick fence, he helped with the electricity, pool issues, gardening and in addition helped sell some of the personal property in the house. In addition to his real job and that was selling the house and negotiating an excellent deal for both the buyer and us the seller. There was no loser in our sale. - Peter Kote
Matthew provided exceptional service to help us find and purchase a home. He is extremely knowledgeable, prompt, and was always available to answer our questions! He went above and beyond by guiding us in the rental of our current home as well. He is highly recommended and we will use him again! - Will Allison
I highly recommend Matt Fletcher. He was incredibly helpful and patient with us when we bought our house. As first time homebuyers we needed a lot of help and patience too! He was available whenever we needed him and when we needed him to act quickly he did just that! He understood perfectly what we were looking for and has great taste to boot. Can't say enough good things. - Brad Davis
My husband and I have used Matthew for three separate real estate transactions and have been more than pleased with his level of knowledge, professionalism, prompt responsiveness and overall skill level. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a savvy and professional agent - Rachael Lewis
Matthew Fletcher helped us with a complicated 1031 Exchange purchase. We had to sell our investment home to buy a home that is now our permanent residence. It was complicated because we had to buy the new house with a contingency to sell the investment home. It was a roller coaster ride but Matthew remained professional and encouraging throughout the entire process. He is very personable and always so flexible when we would call him at the last minute to see a house we were interested in. We are very pleased with our new home! - Jeanne Romero
We recently worked with Matthew Fletcher on our first home purchase. A friend suggested we reach out to him for help because of his extensive knowledge of our target neighborhood. He gave me tons of local knowledge about the best streets, how owners have expanded or added a second bathroom, and other helpful insider neighborhood advice as well as working with me on a letter writing campaign to possible sellers. Through mutual friends we were able to find some off-market listings in a time when there was no inventory available. Matthew helped us understand the value of the homes and worked with us and the sellers through the negotiations and due diligence. I'm sure that buying a home is stressful for many, but for us it was really easy thanks to the education we got from Matthew right from the beginning and his ability to help both parties get exactly what we wanted. It took us less than three months from when we first got in touch until we had closed on a dream home. We are grateful to have had him as our realtor and now our friend. - JP Olson
Matthew Fletcher was able to find us our dream home in a very competitive market. He went above and beyond to make this process as easy as possible. Mr. Fletcher is extremely honest and professional. We feel that he went out of his way to find the answers to our questions regarding our new home. He visited the city to find out fencing for our new home and helped us get quotes for costs that were a big concern of ours. He was always available for our questions. Mr. Fletcher was always on top of everything and gave us so much helpful advice that it made buying a home a positive experience for us. Also, being our listing agent for our condo, Matthew Fletcher got multiple offers from ONE open house. The sale of our condo has been the most delightful experience due to his commitment to positively working with other realtors, his honesty and professionalism. Matthew Fletcher is passionate, honest and professional and will make buying or selling your home as easy as possible. - Daiquiri Scherer
