I found those requirements in Matt Baker. He did not disappoint. Matt did in fact sell my house as a dual agent which means he was my seller agent and also the buyer's agent. He always responded to my phone calls or texts quickly. So, if you have a home you want to sell or a home you want to purchase then I highly recommend Matt Baker.
We are new to the area so our search was widespread and Matt had the patience of a saint. He showed us many many houses in all different directions. He listened to what we told we were looking for and helped us find what we wanted. we Bought a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $350K in Spanish Fort, AL.
He was available for us anytime day or night. He answered all our questions, he even helped us with our new house. I will highly recommend Matt.
He was very patient with us and never stopped searching to try to find us our home. While house hunting we would take our son with us and he really helped keep him entertained while we looked at homes. He set his schedule around us and we didn't feel like he was just a realtor but someone we could talk to
Local knowledge:5 Process expertise:5 Responsiveness:5 Negotiation skills:5 Matt is an amazing realtor! He truly stuck with us till the very end,no matter what obstacles we came across. He was more than willing to go above and beyond.
Matt was quick responding and scheduled us for a showing a couple days later. He is very astute and attentive. He listened to our wish list and provided info pertaining to the community's we are most interested in. I highly recommend Matt if you're looking for a new home.
We were under contract within a month even during the holidays. Matt was able to give solid guidance on pricing and being prepared to market our home. During the sales process, there were unusual requests from the buyer that Matt handled with great care and attention to detail. Communication was always responsive, again, even during the holidays. Matt is comfortable using text, email, etc. to communicate which is a big plus when you don't always have time for a call. Matt also represented us as buyers and was very patient during the selection process and offered great guidance without injecting opinions that could sway us. This is important since it allows us to make our own choice. He had great guidance when we requested his thoughts on any of the choices. This was especially important because he was also the listing agent on some of these options. Matt never pressed us towards his listings which shows a great level of integrity since he would stand to gain more in those situations. I'd have no hesitation in working with or recommending Matt as an agent."
He was always friendly and smiling. He was willing to work with our weird schedule which kept him busy many weekends and evenings. He was also understanding of my desire to not talk on the phone and kept most communications to emails or texts (it’s surprisingly hard to find someone willing to do that!). After 6-7 months of searching the right house for us, two failed attempts at buying one, and viewing, it seemed, all the houses that fit our picky criteria, and some that didn’t, in both Mobile and Baldwin Counties, we finally found the one. He never lost patience with us and never made us feel like we were *those* clients. We would recommend him to friends and family and we are glad we had him as an agent for our first house. It made this whole big intimidating project a lot less scary.
We only had a couple months to find a house, get it under contract, and close. Matt went above and beyond to find the perfect house for our family in the neighborhood that we wanted to be in, even saying "I'll go knock on doors and ask if they would be interested in selling." He showed us countless houses and was available any time we needed him. I would recommend Matt to anyone wanting to buy or sell their home
Encouraging, courteous, professional and determined to find the perfect piece of the world for his clients. I would and have recommended him to anyone who is looking to buy a home! He definitely made our experience as easy and understandable as possible.
He got along with my family and I and helped us find our home! We were picky and he stuck right in there! Highly recommend using him to find your home!
I spoke with him over the phone about the possibility of him being the selling agent for our home. He asked my schedule and insisted on meeting face to face to discuss the details rather than continuing a sterile phone conversation. He came over to the house that afternoon! We talked for an hour (getting to know each other) on my back porch, he then walked around the house giving some tips on little things we could do to prepare our home for a quick sale. He patiently walked me through comps for the area, explained his marketing strategy, and discussed a pricing spectrum for the home (including the estimated final numbers for my take home). We took all of his advice! We power-washed, painted the shutters, manicured the landscaping, touched up paint, made some purchases to stage the house (which we returned!), and had the house thoroughly cleaned. Matt then brought in a professional photographer to really showcase the highlights of our home. After receiving the pictures, he was a little underwhelmed by the angles the photographer utilized in certain shots. So, he asked the gentleman to come back, and personally directed him on exactly what he imagined—looking at every picture to proof it for the listing. We went live with our listing on a Thursday evening. By Friday morning, we had over 1,500 views and a showing lined up. By Saturday morning, we had three showings and over 3,000 views. When the offers started rolling in, I panicked—wanting to jump on the first respectable offer. Matt calmed me down and coached me to be patient. In short, in less than 48 hours we sold our house for $2,000 over asking in a cash deal with a similar backup offer to boot! I wouldn't recommend Matt to you as an agent (buying or selling). I would implore you to use him. Have one conversation (wait until you hear his laugh!). He will knowledgeably and unbiasedly tell you what you need to hear, while also seeing the same beauty and upside that you see in your home. Matt was our agent. Now, Matt is our friend."
Matt Baker has been a great help with looking for the perfect home. He has accommodated me with showing and provided all the information I requested.
...be sure you want to sell, because he will definitely get it done! Within weeks of putting our house on the market we had multiple viewings. We were able to sell much quicker than anticipated and Matt helped us find and get into our current new home. Matt's work ethic and drive are probably the best I've seen. His professionalism and accessibility were way more than my wife and I could have hoped for. I would recommend Mr. Baker to any of our friends and family looking to buy or sell a home!!
