Matthew is an excellent agent that makes you feel warm and welcome. He has extensive knowledge of home buyer programs and can help explain those programs to listing agents so that your offer can get the best review possible. Matthew is honest and straight forward and there when you need him. We needed someone who could explain our financing and advocate on I behalf and I firmly believe if we were using Matthew when we placed our first offer we would have gotten that home.He has extensive knowledge of home buyer programs and can help explain those programs to listing agents so that your offer can get the best review possible.

We had purchased homes before, but he helped us with our first sale. He handled everything flawlessly, from advising us on how to prepare the house, negotiating with our tenants, navigating multiple offers, and managing paperwork and deadlines, down to little details such as offering to locate a clothes washer for us and finding someone to wash the windows and do some cleaning. Our needing to sell the house happened suddenly and we had an extremely tight window of time to prepare. It was a contingency sale, so we had a new home purchase depending on it. We also were scheduled to go on vacation during this time - a recipe for major stress! However, Matthew came through for us and we were able to take our vacation as planned, knowing that the sale of our house was in capable hands.When the listing photos went live on the MLS, we were blown away by how amazing the house looked! We almost had second thoughts about selling it! It ended up selling for much more than we expected or hoped. Added to all this, Matthew has a great demeanor. He is kind, attentive and positive, with a very can-do attitude. Thank you Team Smith! We can't recommend you highly enough!"
Will take a call on the weekends, evenings and do what ever he can to make deals happen. I bought a couple homes this year and he was more of a sales person than I could have ever expected in this industry of agents that list and forget. Thanks to Matt for all his hard work!!!"
We have worked with Mr. Smith twice now. He helped us sell our condo in 2016 and helped us buy a house in 2017. He was very knowledgable, and very helpful in helping us set reasonable expectations, and helped keep of calm, cool, and collected in a very competitive market. We ended up with a great house, and couldn’t have been happier. You can tell he genuinely cares about his clients. He has checked in on us multiple times, since our move in, to make sure everything is still going well."
Cannot thank Matthew enough for helping us through our journey to find our first home!
He is always prepared, responsive, knowledgeable, and relaxed. He made this stressful process comfortable. We looked for a house a few years ago, where he would point out specific details about houses and gauged what we responded to as well as how much work we would want to put in a house. Did not take long for him to understand what we were looking for. He had some houses lined up for our first day out, some that we eventually would drive right past as they no longer met our criteria.
After losing out on a bid, we stopped looking for a house and moved into an apartment. Matthew never pressured us to buy a house, and kept in contact through our year at our apartment. We had new criteria, looking for a bit more of a fixer upper and told him what we wanted to do. Showed him a house we were interested in, and told him what we wanted to do.
He was not afraid to shut us down, telling us our changes will not add to the value of the home. He did provide what he believed would be best for that house, and assured us he wanted us to find our best fit. That house was just not meant for us. We trusted him and believed he could find us a better home, and about a month later he did just that.
Now we are in our new home! He even surprised us by showing up when we were signing documents! He has helped us get in contact with people to help with the renovations, and helped us prioritize which changes would be the biggest bang for our buck. We couldn't be happier with our decision.
Matthew will be our go to guy when we sell our home and decide to start looking again in 10 years. For him, it's not about making the sale. He is someone who is honestly trying to find you a home, one that you'd be happy living in.
Thank you Matthew for everything you've done for us!
Matthew helped us find the perfect home during a really hot market in Spring 2017. He is not only great to work with, but is extremely skilled at working with sellers and their agents. He works hard to put his clients in a strong position. His market knowledge is top notch and one step ahead. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an agent and if we're ever looking to sell, he's our first call.
I've purchased numerous homes throughout the years and every now and then you'll come across a real estate agent that will go to extreme lengths to meet a client's needs - that is exactly what Matthew Smith did. He helped me purchase multiple investment properties and listened to my needs every step of the way. He was patient, professional and exceeded my expectations.
I will recommend Matthew Smith any time I am provided with the opportunity to do so!
Matthew is a true gem! We happened to meet him through our first time home buyer class and are so thankful we did. He helped us every step of the way in buying our home. He has since kept in great touch, well beyond the buying process, always very thoughtful and genuine. He is reliable and ready with wisdom when we have a question or need a trusted recommendation for services. He has the best advice for all things home related! We truly can't recommend him enough. Thank you, Matthew!
Matthew helped us buy our first house in the Seattle area. It was a sellers market with very aggressive buyers. He was very patient with us and very responsive. When we were ready to put in an offer and compete, he found us a good inspector quickly with short notice. He helped us get a great house in a great location. Matthew knows the market and his upbeat personality is a positive. He was recommended to us when we moved here and we highly recommend him to others.
Mathew has been there at my beck and call! He is highly reliable and responsive. It's refreshing to work with someone so professional yet relatable. He provides world class service and has provided me with many solutions. He's the guy I WANT to recommend. You really feel taken care of with Mathew. Working with people like Mathew, frankly, makes life easier...
I'm not exaggerating when I say we wouldn't have our house if it weren't for Matthew.
When we put in our offer for our Seattle home, our max bid was the same as another family but because the selling agent had worked with Matthew before and liked working with him the seller picked us!
Matthew was professional, hardworking, listened to our wants, and was just really fun to hang out with, which is super important when you're spending all day looking at a dozen houses. And I never felt pressured or dismissed, no matter how many questions or concerns I had.
I'm so so grateful that was chose Matthew as our realtor!
I bought a house with Matt about a year ago and I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking to buy a house.
As a first time home buyer, I felt like I was in over my head most of the time but Matt took the time to not only tour close to two dozen home (some of them twice) he also spent the time to explain every step of the home buying process in easy to understand terms.
And if that wasn't enough, he even put me in touch with a reputable mortgage broker and home inspector once we found a place I was willing to bid on.
Matt also is a master negotiator who always seeks win-win scenarios which came in handy when the home inspector found a leaking AC pipe in the house I wanted to buy. He negotiated on my behalf to get the AC pipe fixed prior to closing. And as a person with not-the-best people skills, I couldn't appreciate that more.
So whether you're buying a house for the first time or the 100th time, give Matt a call. You won't regret it.
Matthew helped us buy our first home and we had an accepted offer in just 3 weeks! He knows how to put together the most competitive offer and will be there for you at all hours to help you make that happen. He is patient in answering questions and giving you time and space to process everything. If you need advice or real estate insight he is happy to provide it. He has trustworthy connections with people that you WILL need as a homeowner. I highly recommend Matthew Smith!
Matthew was a huge help in our relocating from Bellingham to Seattle: From his knowledge of the various neighborhoods to helping us find inspectors, finance and contractor options.
He was super flexible in helping us get in to see LOTS of houses, as it was a very tough time to buy a house. His offer strategies helped us be front runners on a few bids, and ultimately winners in our great Bryant home.
Plus his sense of humor helped bring some moments of levity to what was at times a pretty stressful process (selling a house in one city and buying a house in another).
Matthew Smith made the selling process absolutely amazing. He took care of all the details and had the vision to do what was needed to sell the house in a competitive Seattle market... while I lived in San Diego, CA! He kept me updated with the necessary details and took care of the rest. Thankful for his work and I wholehearted recommend him to anyone who is in the housing market.
Matthew is an excellent realtor - I've also been a licensed Real Estate salesperson in another state so I feel qualified to say that. His knowledge of the market is impressive and he has an amazing sense of humor, but what really won me over was his dedication and his negotiation skills. In the crazy Seattle housing market, we had to put in 10 offers before we finally secured the house we own, and Matthew never waivered in his dedication to make sure we found a home we loved. Matthew also made sure we didn't shoot ourselves in the foot during the negotiations (I was intent to do so), and I'm so happy he was there to help us through. Highly recommended!
Matthew was incredibly helpful in purchasing my house. He recommended the best mortgage broker, inspector, and other repair folks for after I moved in, and he has a wealth of home-buying expertise. There were some unusual circumstances in my buying process and Matthew handled them expertly. I am certain that I would not have been able to buy this house without him. Best of all was his personality and character: he put me at ease when I was stressed, he was confident when I was wishy-washy, and always clear and and honest about financial concerns. It sounds cliche, but Matthew was more motivated by his desire to see me and my family find a good home than to earn his commission! A one-of-a-kind guy. I wish I could buy another house just to hang out with him some more!
As first-time buyers, we had lots of questions about becoming homeowners. Throughout the entire process, Matthew was helpful and patient, equipping us with the information we needed to confidently make the right decisions. He provided us with many options, presented the pros and cons of each, but never pressured us one way or another. We could not be happier with our home, and we have Matthew to thank for that! HIGHLY recommend!
Matthew is incredible! My husband and I have worked with him to buy (x2) and sell, and could not recommend him more (I wish I could give him more than 5 stars!) Buying and selling are a huge financial decision, especially in the Seattle market, and we trust Matthew's advice and guidance through the entire process and have had great results. Matthew went above and beyond to get to know us, our preferences, and our comfort level throughout the process- asking "what can I do to help you" repeatedly. Highly, highly recommend!
A great agent!
I found Matthew trough my now wife, who purchased her condo from him some years ago. She told nothing but great things of him, and they are all true.
I was looking to sell my house before I got engaged, called Matthew, and we were off to the races.
I told Matthew the minimum I wanted, and he told me what I needed to do. He gave me the rough outline, provided a list of contacts for all of the necessary sub-contractors that I needed, and had given me names and numbers for any that I had for additional bids.
The project took about two months, and he was there every step of the way. Phone calls were returned in a timely manner, and weekly visits to check on the progress were always welcome.
All of the paperwork was doc-u-signed, never had to meet print out a hundred pages to scan back to him.
Matthew took the stress of the selling off of me. He listed it at a fair price and market paid over. But none of that would have been possible had he not provided me with contractors and a list of upgrades to do.
I will most definitely be using him when we go to sell my wife's condo in the future. And when we go to buy another house. Or a new weekend spot, or... He is our go to realtor.
If you're looking the best realtor in the biz please look no further! Matthew is spectacular, with immense knowledge of the market, excellent customer service skills, and Ethically sound. You will not be disappointed when working with Matthew.
We have worked with Mr. Smith twice now. He helped us sell our condo in 2016 and helped us buy a house in 2017. He was very knowledgeable, and very helpful in helping us set reasonable expectations, and helped keep of calm, cool, and collected in a very competitive market.
We ended up with a great house, and couldn't have been happier. You can tell he genuinely cares about his clients.
He has checked in on us multiple times, since our move in, to make sure everything is still going well.
I highly recommend Mr. Smith for anyone who is buying or selling.
Matthew Smith went above and beyond!
As a first time homeowner without any frame of reference and a billion questions; Matthew was patient and informative and I always felt like he had my best interests in mind. I never felt like he was pressuring me to buy, only that he was advising me to make sure I made informed decisions. He took me far and wide to view some seriously hopeless houses and never gave up on me, even when I did. He knew what I suited for and listened to what I wanted. Matthew took the time and had the patience I needed from a realtor. I had an annoying amount of questions and he always provided thorough and thoughtful answers. If he didn't have the answers, he did the research required to get them.
In the end, I felt like I was going through this process with a friend. I was comfortable with him and he never let me down. He was reliable and flexible and funny and charismatic when it came time to offer. As a new member of the homeowners club, I hear other stories and I realize just how lucky I was to have been matched up with Matthew for my first home purchase.
I most certainly have been and will continue to recommend Matthew to all who ask.
Matthew was an invaluable part of purchasing our first home. My sister had highly recommended Matthew after she had utilized his services for the purchase of her home. Matthew is very experienced and offered a strong understanding of all aspects of purchasing and dealing with hiccups along the way. We couldn't have done it without him. Because of Matthew we now own our dream home.
We purchased our first home with the help of Matthew Smith, and I could not be more thrilled with how smooth he made the process. He put us first every step of the way and constantly went the extra mile on our behalf. From driving us from Seattle to Tacoma to look at houses, to peaking around the nooks and crannies to ensure we settled on a great purchase - Matthew Smith is one in a million. He is extremely knowledgeable, fierce where it counts, and will keep you laughing the entire time!
So helpful and kind! Huge help in advising my brother and his family and we will use him as well. I was impressed with the process and the way I saw him communicate with my brother compared to other realtors we have worked with in the past.
My wife and I called Matthew because we decided to sell our rental house and wanted to buy another house. We were in a hurry because we didn't want to have to eat the cost of the mortgage for our unrented house. He quickly met with us and provided a ton of helpful insight. He was very attentive and readily available to take us to tour houses we were interested in.
When my wife and I decided to pull the plug and not end up selling our house or buying another house, but instead just moved into our rental, Matthew was incredibly professional and gracious. He did not make it feel like we wasted his time, instead he was genuinely happy that we found a solution to our crazy situation.
Matthew is a fantastic person to work with. He's been very helpful to us navigating and learning as we make our move. Highly recommend.
Also, this is the 2nd house we've bought with him.
