Matthew Barker's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with Matthew Barker

    • "Matt and his team made themselves available pretty much 24 hours a day. I believe we at times talked at 5 am in the morning and sometimes talked at 9pm at night. If he was not available someone always was. It just made things go so easy because answers came so easy so that me and my family could make good decisions. Thanks Matt and team."

      - Andrew Petit, Apple Valley
    • "Matt exceeded our expectations. We know that he didn't receive a large commission from our sale due to the partnership/arrangement they have worked out from our builder, and yet still, he made a huge effort to assure us during every step of the way and went above and beyond knowing what our needs were in this process. He treated us just like he would treat a customer that would have made him a large amount of money knowing that we couldn't really do that for him. We felt heard, we felt important and he took care of us.We LOVED the 360 visual photography he did. They made our townhome look so attractive to the market! Amazing work, above and beyond.Matt's such a great guy. My husband and I both have a great judgement of character...we were nervous to meet our realtor. Upon meeting Matt, we felt immediate trust in Matt. Matt is genuine in his care for his clients."

      - Samantha, Prior Lake
    • "We met with other agents prior to selecting Matt. His knowledge, confidence and credentials shined through during our initial meeting. He takes his reputation and customer satisfaction very seriously and this provided us with the confidence we needed to make the selection.I cannot say enough about Matt as an agent. He provided us excellent service, kept us well informed and was a pleasure to work with.They went out of there way during the sale of my home. They even went so far as to meet me at my new apartment to handle some pre-closing paperwork. They were extremely accommodating.Matt and the Barker Hedges Group are the only agents I will use going forward. I have already recommended them to multiple people who are considering selling their homes."

      - Nichole Tannahill - Cottage Grove, MN
    • "I liked dealing with Matt. He knows real estate and how to sell it. He was able to help me through this and it had been more than 29 years since the last time I had to sell a home. His big smile and outgoing way encourages people to think positive. I would list my home with Matt again and would recommend him to others."

      - John Ronhovde, Chaska, MN
    • "We can't say enough about Matt and the entire Team at Barker/Hedges. They walked us through both a home sale and purchase, taking time in both transactions to make sure we were cared for, involved and getting what we wanted. Matt's service is second to none and many times he went above and beyond for us so that we could find our perfect home. We strongly recommend Matt as a listing or buying agent and would gladly leverage his expertise again in the future!"

      - Andrew and Caitlin Fjerstad, Cottage Grove
    • "Matt Barker put together an outstanding marketing plan for our home and executed it extremely well. We understood the conditions in the market and Matt kept us up to date on what was happening around us at our price point to help us make good decisions. There's so much data available to buyers and sellers now, it was great to have someone working on our behalf. We felt confident with every decision we made.Barker-Hedges impressed us with their use of technology (drone photography and video, 3M walk through, and custom website) to get us on the market quickly. We were able to sell without enduring open houses.I recommended Matt to my boss already. Modern marketing, data analytics and ultimate a sold home!"

      - Dave Green, Woodbury, MN

Matt did a great job throughout this entire process! He was very knowledgeable, responsive, positive and upbeat, and very reassuring! It was a pleasure working with Matt and would recommend Matt Barker to family and friends."

      - Christine H. Richfield
    • "Matt Barker is the absolute bestfrom start to finish he made me feel like I was his only priority and worked extremely hard to get my home sold. My home sold in less than a week and successfully closed in record fashion. I will be working with Matt again on my future properties and would recommend that everyone looking to buy or sell should have Matt on speed dial. Matt truly cares about his clients and is straightforward and honesta very trustworthy agent that is hard to come by nowadays. Pick up the phone or email him regarding your property, you wont regret it!"

      - Chad P, Prior Lake
    • "Matt uses marketing techniques that target specific individuals and groups of people. We saw the results.Matt Barker took control of the process once we received an offer, managed the negotiation and while I know people often just say polite things, I mean it when I say Matt made the process easy and probably more important, sold the home for the listed amount.I'm very appreciative of his effort and the result."

      - Sean Wagstaff, Prior Lake, MN
    • "Matt and his team are excellent to work with! I appreciated their knowledge, lguidance and quick responses during the selling/buying/closing process. I will definitely recommend to family or friends. Selling/Buying/Moving is incredibly stressful. When you have a team of excellent people working on your behalf, you can focus your attention and energy on something else. Thanks Matt, Jordan, Suzanne, Heather and Stephanie!"

    • "Matt's real estate knowledge was apparent in how to market my duplex; it wasn't a normal home, and he still managed to get me SEVEN offers in 3 days of showings. I told him I was hoping for 5 showings. We had that many scheduled before the house even officially hit the market. Could not have been happier with the result!"

      - Darlene Wallner, Woodbury MN
