'Matt did a great job in helping me find the perfect apartment that met all my requirements.

Matt is an amazing realtor. When we moved back to the city from Boston we only had one day to look at places. Matt was incredibly helpful and prepared more showings than we could have imagined. Every apartment we saw landed squarely within the list of things we were looking for, and most importantly matched our budget. By the end of the day we had our pick of the litter and signed on an amazing apartment. Matt is honest, professional and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend Matt to anyone looking for a place.'– Lindsay S

Matt is such a great person to work with while renting out my apartment. He was knowledgeable about the market and guided me through the process including working with the stringent renting requirements. Because of his diligent work, my place was rent out within two weeks in Winter! Matt is honest, personal and professional. Totally different from other real estate agents I had worked with. Highly recommended!!– Christine Liao
