B&A Burton (Seller)
“I first met Matt at an open house in October 2014. We discussed my property and my intent to rent or sell. A few days later, I received a letter in the mail. Matt followed up with a hand written note of our meeting and discussion. I was impressed. When it came time to vacate my property, I spoke with Matt about selling options and Matt provided his professional opinion and recommendations. Based on Matt's input and my desire to own a property near the metro system, so I decided to rent. Within three days, Matt found and screened renters for my condo. He was there throughout the process, to include the walk through. Matt provided good advice. He did a great job. I would recommend him.”
