He lived up to every bit of praise I had read on his yelp reviews!!
I recently sold my first home and after having a very nerve wracking buying process a few years prior (due to an inexperienced and timid buying agent) I went out of my way to find the best agent I could to sell.Travis R. Dallas, OR
Matthew was the top rated agent on yelp, and from the moment I called him (he answered on the first ring) to the moment we closed, he lived up to every bit of praise I had read on his yelp reviews.
He was knowledgeable, attentive, easy to get in touch with, quick to respond, and always offering solutions. He did a great job setting my expectations and negotiating on my behalf. He always had my best interests in mind.
If you want an easy, quick, low stress buying or selling experience, go to the best realtor in the northwest. You'll be glad you did.
Mathew is the best real estate agent you could dream of and a very kind person!!
Mathew is the best real estate agent you could dream of and a very kind person! I honestly would give him 10 stars for the hard work he does every single day including weekends. My fiance and I are first time home buyers and find the whole process so extremely stressful but Mathew has been very helpful and is always there for us, immediately responding to all our questions and concerns, and going out of the way to help us at every step, despite all the setbacks we have encountered. A true gem of a realtor! Thank you Mathew!Daria D. Rowland Heights, CA
Our only complaint is that we are now in a different market and won't be able to use Mathew in the future!!
We have now had excellent experiences with Mathew both in purchasing our house in 2015, and then in selling it this year. Mathew is always very responsive and does a good job of making sure that we have all of the advice and competitive landscape information we need to make an informed decision. He also went above and beyond to be our person on the ground as we were out of town during our house closing.Nick P. Beaverton, OR
We would not have been able to accomplish everything that we needed to in a short period of time if it were not for Mathew. Our only complaint is that we are now in a different market and won't be able to use Mathew in the future if we have need of a real estate agent again.
There's a reason everyone here raves about him: he is dedicated, knowledgeable, and a great communicator!!
Mathew helped us buy our dream home out in the country, and I can't say enough great things about him. We decided on a whim that we wanted to attend an open house and he met us that same day to help us tour the property. He ended up showing us more homes that day, including "the one" that was just what we were looking for. There's a reason everyone here raves about him: he is dedicated, knowledgeable, and a great communicator (this is so important in a realtor). He happily met us at the property a few more times through the inspection processes, and even came out so I could show my family. I am recommending Mathew to everyone!Lindsey G. Portland, OR
Mathew is THE man!!
If his other reviewers haven't sold you on him already, take it from me: Mathew is THE man. He's as professional and genuine as they come and you'll be glad you picked him to land you the home you're looking for.Eric M. Hillsboro, OR
As first-time buyers, he made us feel entirely equipped and confident as we went through the searching, offering, and buying processes. He asked great questions to get to know exactly what we wanted, proactively shared new listings with us, and was available day and night for whatever we needed. Even though we were incredibly needy and bugged him often to ask questions or ask to view a property, he's got a tireless work ethic and was a true partner in the process.
When we did find the home we wanted, Mathew sealed the deal even though ours wasn't the first offer accepted and we were heartbroken to miss out on it originally, Mathew had made a good relationship with the seller's realtor and helped us swoop in immediately when the opportunity presented itself.
We've been in our house now for a couple months and we're still so happy with our decision and we look forward to being here for many years to come. We can't recommend him enough. Thanks again Mathew!
He is incredibly responsive, reliable, and has a great sense of humor!!
We used Mathew for a sale and a purchase. We decided on a Monday to list our home and it was on the market on Friday with an open house on Saturday, sold on Wednesday for full price. He is incredibly responsive, reliable, and has a great sense of humor which made him very fun to work with. He was there to answer question any time via text, email or phone call. One day he even drove from Dundee to Gresham to show us one home that we really wanted to see! He's just a great guy and is very knowledgeable about the current crazy market all over the Portland area. I can't say enough about him. I highly recommend Mathew for your next sale or purchase.Quinn E. Portland, OR
This guy WORKS!!
This guy WORKS. I've been working in investment real estate for over a decade and I was very impressed with his knowledge, negotiations, and general hustle. We had a tough property to sell, and every inspection made it harder, but he managed to keep all parties engaged and get us what we needed from the sale. You can't expect or ask for more. Give him a call.Matthew T. Danville, CA
Mathew (one "T") Was just awesome to work with!!
Mathew (one "T") Was just awesome to work with. This process was the first time for my wife and I, and he really kept us informed on any information that had come in. Through Text, email and phone, communication was easy, and he was always available to answer my questions. I would highly recommend Mathew to anyone experienced or not to help you through the home selling process, he is very much a stand up guy. Thanks Mat for everything, and if your ever in Anchorage, you can help me buy a house! Take care.Martin S. Lafayette, OR
He was very warm and patient with us and very assertive with others on our behalf!!
Matthew was a great real estate agent. We were first-time homebuyer's and he held her hand through the entire process. Mathew worked with us to find our perfect home. He was available on the weekdays and weekends and any time of day to answer any questions we had. Matthew was a great person to have on your side-he was very warm and patient with us and very assertive with others on our behalf. We highly recommend Mathew and would work with him again.Addy E. Forest Grove, OR
If we had to do this all over again, there is no doubt that we would always pick Mathew!!
Mathew was just amazing. One of the best parts about working with him was how available he made himself. Any time of day or night that we had questions we were able to reach out and very quickly get a response. He walked us through the offer process, negotiating and was there to help calm nerves during the signing process. If we had to do this all over again, there is no doubt that we would always pick Mathew!Charlotte K. Hillsboro, OR
We have several friends that are going to be looking for their dream home in the coming months and we will definitely be sending them to Mathew. There is no doubt that he'll treat them just as amazingly as he treated us.
Mathew is attentive, hard-working and goes above and beyond what is expected of a realtor!!
Mathew is attentive, hard-working and goes above and beyond what is expected of a realtor. He loves what he does and it clearly shows. I'm working with him right now and could not be more pleased. I am from out of state looking to move to the Portland area and just returned from a visit there. Matthew lined up a dozen houses for me to see, which provided a good look at all the different areas of Portland. I appreciated this since I have not definitively decided on which area I want to settle in, In addition, he is always available by phone or e-mail and good at maintaining contact. Although I haven't found "the" house yet, I am confident that I will. Mathew knows his stuff and looks after his clients very well. I would highly recommend him.Lisa G. Pacific PLSDS, CA
I would highly highly recommend him to other sellers (and to buyers as well)!!
We used Mathew for the sale of our home this past week. From the start, he was a huge help. He helped us decide what needed to be done to present the house for sale in the best light, while minimizing the costs of those fixes. He helped us price the house correctly and react to changing market dynamics. He advertised the house well, and ran quite a number of open houses, both for local agents and buyers. He was timely, efficient, and appropriate in her dealings with offers, and shepherded us and the buyers through the closing process in the same manner. To be honest, this was a very difficult property sale, and Mathew had to deal with a number of issues that were truly beyond the usual domain of the realtor, but these could have derailed the sale and he handled them extremely well. I would highly highly recommend him to other sellers (and to buyers as well).Carl T. Milwaukie, OR
Our home selling and buying couldn't have gone more smoothly!!
Our home selling and buying couldn't have gone more smoothly! Mathew sold our house in 3 days and was able to negotiate a good price and additional amenities for our new house. It was incredibly obvious that he had our best interests in mind and that we could trust him to lead us through this sometimes complicated process.Mike H. Portland, OR
I would highly recommend him to buy your next home!!
Mathew is a great real estate agent. We were first time homes buyers and he was very patient with us through the whole process. Never felt rushed. He was completely ok to show numerous houses and there was no pressure to put offers on them.S.G. Beaverton, OR
Another good thing about him is that like other agents, he does not make you put higher and higher offers. This was a huge relief as we had another agent before, who kept pushing us, but not Mathew.
We even had to back track a bit after making offers due to inspection finding issues and he was VERY helpful through the difficult process and also got our earnest money back.
I would highly recommend him to buy your next home :)
Matt is wonderful to work with!!
Matt is wonderful to work with and I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell!Jamie D. Forest Grove, OR
We couldn't be happier with the service he provided!!
We had a great experience with Matt! He helped us buy a house recently in Hillsboro and we couldn't be happier with the service he provided. He was very responsive and thorough and helped us every step along the way in the purchase process. If you want an agent in the Hillsboro, OR area and want someone who's professional, attentive to your needs, knowledgeable of the area, and will provide great service, definitely give Matt a call. You won't regret it.Steve S. Lacey, WA
It didn't matter day or night Mathew was always there!!
Mathew was just awesome in helping us purchase the home we will spend the rest of our life in. Even though I and my wife searched on line for homes Mathew always did his research to find other homes we didn't even see on line to look at. He always seemed to know what our wishes and needs were and in what kind of homes we were looking for and never wasted our time in getting us to look at homes we would never be interested in. I've probably had to deal with half a dozen realtors in my lifetime and Mathew is definitely the best one we've ever had. It didn't matter day or night Mathew was always there with any questions we might have had or help with paperwork. Thanks to Mathew and his quick responsiveness and attention to detail he made this our easiest closing ever.Jon M. Forest Grove, OR
Mathew goes above and beyond and I can't thank him enough!!
I came to Portland from Colorado and was looking to find a house more out in the country. Fortunately I found Matthew who introduced me to Forest Grove and my now new home. Matthew worked diligently to bring all parties together to get our closing done, which wasn't easy, but he was awesome and we got it done. Matthew is a great realtor who really works hard, keeping his party's interests first. He helped me keep my sanity in what turned out to be a very difficult move - even working with my realtor in Colorado, recommending hotels for me to stay in, and giving me advice on where to go for things not related to the purchase of the house. Mathew goes above and beyond and I can't thank him enough for all he did for me.Lori R. Forest Grove, OR
Matt gave us an incredible experience as first time homebuyers... his non-pressure attitude was very appreciated!!
Matt gave us an incredible experience as first time homebuyers. There was not a time where he was unavailable and he would often communicate with us late into the evening if needed. It didn't matter if it was a phone call, a text, or an email, he always responded as soon as possible. He listened carefully to our wants and did his best to find properties that fulfilled all of our needs and that were within our discussed budget. His non-pressure attitude was very appreciated and made the home buying experience not only pleasant one, but more like an adventure.Michael R. Cornelius, OR
Another realtor said it was worth much less , Mathew said it was worth what we were asking and sold it!!
He went above and beyond. That is the only reason I took the time to write this. When another realtor said it was worth much less , Mathew said it was worth what we were asking and sold it. Thank You MathewSteve S. Portland, OR
He tirelessly answered all of my questions!!
Mathew was extremely helpful with finding my new home. He not only recommended homes that fit my search criteria, but he also responded very quickly to my questions about homes that I found through my own search. He tirelessly answered all of my questions and provided the information I needed to make a good decision. I felt very comfortable working with Mathew, and now get to enjoy living in a new home!Kenny C. Beaverton, OR
Always available to us and completely stayed on top of the transaction!!
Mathew helped us buy a home recently -- and we weren't sure if we wanted to buy a different primary home in the Beaverton/Hillsboro area or if we wanted to buy a second home at the beach. Mathew showed us homes in all areas and went above and beyond in his support of us, the buying transaction and fully representing us as the buyer. I highly recommend Mathew - he was always available to us and completely stayed on top of the transaction. We ultimately purchased a home at the beach and he made multiple trips down there with us to ensure everything was perfect.Robin S. Hillsboro, OR
He helped us get the most out of it that we could!!
Mathew helped us sell our home in Hillsboro. He was very knowledgeable and I believe he helped us get the most out of it that we could. I would highly recommend him, and would use him again.Karen D. Gaston, OR
Knowledgeable, honest, responsive, and very professional!!
First off I must say I'm a very "resourceful, do it yourself" kind of guy. Honestly when my wife mentioned "let's find a real estate agent" my stomach began to cringe. I did tons of research and was still reluctant to use anyone's to help with the house buying process. I agreed as any good husband should, to at least talk with a one agent and go from there.Aaron C. Silverton, OR
With that being said, I'm so glad I listened to her.
Mathew Purcell is a stand up guy! We met for coffee to discuss a plan and Mathew answered all my questions about the processes of buying and selling houses. He used "normal" words, and never made us feel like we asked any dumb questions. He is very knowledgeable, honest, responsive, and very professional. The house did have some hiccups due to the age (1920), and took a long time for repairs. Mathew never gave up or let us become discouraged. He helped us tremendously through the process even though it was more work than normal!
I would recommend Mathew to anyone, if you're new to buying houses or experienced, he can help and make it a enjoyable experience!
I really appreciated how kind, generous and helpful he was!!
Buying a home was stressful and Mathew went out of his way to make us feel at ease, getting us answers to all of our questions. Everything went so smoothly with his help. Even once the sale was complete, he would check on us, see how things were going and even helped me out with finding an electrician and contractor. I really appreciated how kind, generous and helpful he was through out the whole process and ever after.Sarah C. Beaverton, OR
Professional, honest, and dedicated to his clients 100%!!
We recently concluded our first home selling experience. Mathew is professional, honest, and dedicated to his clients 100%. He walked us thru the entire process, providing accurate value (sold in 4 days), as well as streamlining final negotiations in order for a smooth close. I personally look forward to working with him in the future and highly recommend Mathew to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.Kimberly P. Beaverton, OR
Our deal went through successfully with great money savings!!
Mathew was the listing agent of the condo we bought recently in a short sale. From the first day I met Mathew to three months later when we got the deal closed, Mathew has helped us very professionally and efficiently in getting all issues taken cared of. We live in a different state and could not be on site most of the time, Mathew helped getting all the paperwork prepared and signed online or remotely. He worked with the buyer's agent on price negotiating and addressed all issues between me and the condo owner or the banks. As a result, our deal went through successfully with great money savings. Mathew also helped me connect to local service people in getting the condo inspected, painted and carpet changed without me being around. Mathew is very efficient in handling all issues, and he always responded my requests promptly. He was willing to go extra miles to help me since I was remote all the time. Mathew makes me feel that he really cares about what I need and tries very hard to make it convenient for us. Big THANKS to Mathew for being such a great agent and for doing a super job in helping us in this process!Yu W. Olympia, WA
I love my house and I'm really happy
I used Mathew for decided what home is good for me, I just divorced my husband, and he really undersood my problems and he helped me in just 2 weeks.Now I love my house and I'm really happy.Isabel A. OR
Thank you so much for your help.
I was very impressed with his ethics and open communication!!
Mat worked diligently to sell our older home. He was able to guide us through the ups and down of home selling which can be challenging with the situation we found ourselves in when we finally decided to move forward with the inevitable need to down size. He was patient and considerate as well as being excellent at his chosen profession. I was very impressed with his ethics and open communication. He responded quickly to every call, email and text. He took time to explain what was happening and kept us informed all along the way. He respected our concerns as elders with limitations related to our situation, and offered viable options and ideas to best address our needs. He is someone I will recommend to friends and will always be grateful that he was our realty agent. Outstanding young man.Mary E. Clackamas, OR
Knows how to make clients feel very important no matter what their price range is!!
Mathew was amazing! Listened to our wants and got us quickly into new listings. He was available day and night and answered all of our 800 questions with being first home buyers. I would recommend Mathew to anyone looking to buy or sell. Very professional and knows how to make clients feel very important no matter what their price range is.Stephanie C. Portland, OR
