Since joining the team in 2004, Matt has established himself as one of Pakenham’s leading agents.
Matt grew up in Pakenham Upper and attended school at Beaconhills College. He developed a keen interest in Property which led him to study Valuation at RMIT and he recently completed a Masters of Business in Property.
Since starting his career in Real Estate in 2002, Matt’s committed and enthusiastic nature has earned him the respect and appreciation of his clients. He builds enduring professional relationships based upon trust, courtesy and strong ethics whilst his willingness to go the ‘extra mile’ is undoubtedly one of his keys to success.
Matt fully appreciates the stress associated with selling a property and his natural empathy and understanding ensures his clients are always informed and able to relax throughout the campaign.
In his spare time, Matt lives locally with his wife and two daughters on a farm in Pakenham and is currently involved in his 5th major property renovation. With a natural flare for adding value to property he is an asset to any vendor looking to add value to their property.
With offices in Pakenham, Berwick and Narre Warren, First National Real Estate Neilson Partners is a close-knit team of dedicated Sales, Property Management and Administrative professionals; a team that offers first-class service, integrity, proven accountability and inspired results.
Matt was extremely knowledgeable about the area and recent sales. He provided a realistic expected sale price and after agreeing on what we would accept negotiated to achieve more than this. Matt arranged to meet tradesmen onsite so that I didn’t need to be there to give them access. In every way Matt exceeded our expectations. An agent you can trust and know he is acting in your best interests.
Matt worked wonders for us in our rather awkward sale. Firstly both my parents were recently moved into aged care, which meant that the family home had to be sold. Mum suffered a stroke and Dad had dementia. It was a time when we all felt some what negative and very tentative about the sale. To make the situation even more difficult the council placed a heritage ruling on the house and we lost our buyer. The house lost a great deal of value because of that council ruling but Matt saved the day securing a buyer for us. He handled the entire sale with a watchful enthusiastic professionalism.
I am a buyers advocate and have been in the real estate industry for over 25 years. Dealing with Matt was a delight he was honest, knowledgeable and easy to deal with. I was engaged by my international client to secure an investment property and Matt was able to get favourable terms for my client which resulted in a great purchase. I deal with agents on a daily basis and I meet all types, Matt was a stand out. I have no hesitation in recommending Matt to prospective vendors he is a hard working professional agent.
Not stressful at all. Matt did a great job of assessing our property and advising us what needed doing and what didn't. We had two open for inspections. We had many viewers. Within three weeks a new owner was found. So his marketing was spot on and hassle free.
We found Matt refreshing in his approach, hard working, no nonsense, always available. Matt constantly updated us and we felt he was working with us and had our best interests as his first priority.
