Dean and Carol purchased this home in 1990, and the home was in close to its original condition when we were brought in. In order to meet the client’s $40,000 remodel budget we had to select and implement the highest and best makeover options. We had a landscaping crew cut and manicure the landscaping. We removed the popcorn ceilings, gave the interior and exterior all new paint, changed out the carpeting and repaired several deferred maintenance points from the property condition report. We staged the home and listed the home in October, developed a marketing strategy utilizing the data, and received an offer above list price before our offer review date. The estimated value of the home before the makeover was $715,000. The home sold for $835,000. Our system and team was able to net them $80,000 more than if they had not done any improvements, as many brokers suggested.
Matt handled everything from moving us out of our house to selling the home. He coordinated the estate sale, packing and moving, landscapers, painters, and all our contractors. He and his team met the timeline and budget and implemented their plan flawlessly. We had moved out of the house and out of state, and we fully trusted him and his strategy to sell on our behalf. We have sold many houses in the past and this is the best experience we’ve ever had. We will definitely recommend him to our family and friends. Working with Matt and his team was by far the best experience.

I became involved in advising the builder of this gorgeous Bellevue custom construction from the beginning. I worked extensively with the builder to help them select design finishes including paint colors, tile used, lighting, flooring, cabinetry, landscape design and more. We then had the home professionally staged and implemented our proprietary marketing system to sell the home.
In less than 30 days we had multiple offers and sold the home for $2,900,000.
Matt was a crucial team player. His vast knowledge of the construction process, quality control, management and understanding of the luxury design elements were crucial to this project’s success. He was able to exceed our price expectations.

This home was listed for sale by another agent on 8/01/2017 for $789,800. After 25 days on the market it still had no offers from buyers in a very hot real estate market.
In late October 2017 I was contacted by the owner of the property who wanted to sell. After looking at the property it was decided that what it needed was some “curb appeal” to truly appeal to buyers. For around $2500 we arranged to have the entire home exterior pressure washed, the interior cleaned, and some landscape cleanup. We then staged the interior for the homeowner and put our marketing plan in place to get this home sold.
On Nov. 16th 2017 we listed the home for sale (Note this is only 1 week before Thanksgiving) for $798,800 with the expectation we would receive multiple offers. Five days and eight offers later we negotiated with a buyer a final sale price of $850,000. More than $50,000 over our initial list price.
Being an out of state seller, it was so easy to work with Matt. I had a vacant house that I needed to sell quickly, but it needed some work and I had very little budget for improvements. Matt helped me identify key things that could improve the appeal of the home without costing much or taking a lot of time. He took care of everything from cleaning pressure washing, windows cleaning, lan,dscaping, junk removal, updating light-bulbs and staging the home. I am confident that the price we sold for was because of the amazing service Matt & his team provided, and I was able to pay for it all through his pay at closing option. He is a true professional and definitely exceeded my expectations.
