Matt & Jenny Cannon's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with Matt & Jenny Cannon

    • We were looking for a realtor who represented the buyer and was knowledgeable about the Sarasota area market which we knew nothing about. Matt and we connected and he was friendly, listened patiently to our needs and proposed a plan of action. Since we live out of state, Matt first provided a verbal overview of the area and set up a portal for us to look at a variety of new and previously owned houses that fit our requirements, prior to us visiting the area. We were able to winnow the list in preparation for our visit to the area. Matt made himself fully available by phone, responded to emails prior and was very welcoming when we arrived. He took us on a grand tour of the Sarasota and the surrounding area. His pride in the area, his local knowledge, professionalism, willingness to answer any questions and his clear relationships with builders and realtors made it very easy on us. It would have taken us a very long time to cover it all on our own rather than hone in on the beat choices. We found the home we wanted quite rapidly and he aided us in negotiating the few extras we wanted to be included in the price. He made certain that the process and paperwork was clearly explained. We went to contract and went back home to await the build. Throughout, Matt was available at any time and when it came to the walk through six days before closing, Jenny joined us as she had worked on the new home side of things in the past and added her eagle eye to the event. Together they caught things that we might have missed and we were thrilled that at closing 99% (all the big things) were already handled by the builder. In fact, since we were in Florida but a few hours away, they revisited the site the day before closing to ensure everything was being well addressed. My husband and I have just closed on our home in Florida and we couldn't be more thrilled about how smoothly it went and a lot of it has to do with Matt and Jenny's great attention to detail and care of us. We trust them completely and highly recommend them as realtors.

    • I worked with Matt Cannon in purchasing my first home. As my buyers agent, I found him to be incredibly knowledgeable about the housing market in Sarasota, Florida. Matt took the time to understand my needs when searching for my home and was readily available to take us out to see more houses than you could shake a stick at - at the drop of a hat. At the early stages of my house hunting, I was initially working with several agents but quickly dropped them all early on in the process due to Matt's accessibly, proactiveness, extensive knowledge and expertise, and eagerness to help. I was blown away by his professionalism and accessibility and I know you will be too! When it came down to negotiating, Matt's 25+ years of expertise really shined. His experience in real estate appraisals and understanding what the market could actually bear for homes in Sarasota helped make the negotiating and, eventual, purchasing of my home seamless, easy, and stress free. As you can imagine, the pricing of homes in Sarasota is a bit exaggerated and Matt's ability to quickly assess, evaluate, and appraise a given property made it so much easier when it came time to putting in a realistic offer. I cannot say enough nice things about Matt Cannon. He's open, honest, transparent, and is willing to go the extra mile for his clients. I would unequivocally recommend him to anyone in need of a realtor without hesitation. Hands down the best of the best in Sarasota, Florida!

    • Matt did a great job as the focal point for our home search. He helped not only the search process and refining follow searches based on our feedback, he also was very responsive for the follow up we needed. Coming from out of state,Matt was our eyes and feet on the ground with follow up as we worked through our home purchase from long distance. He provided good insight into local standards and typical items to consider to handle the Florida climate. Would recommend him without any concerns.

      - Dan and Kathy
    • We dealt primarily with Matt. As an owner of 8 previous houses in NY, California, New York, and Florida (and an ex-Real estate broker myself), I am a tough reviewer. Matt is as good as we have seen - thorough, knowledgeable, patient and totally professional. Did I say an pleasant and enjoyable person to be with? I should have. He took his time and was always well prepared and spent a great deal of time familiarizing us with the area and its many advantages.We would recommend Matt to everyone seriously looking for a pleasant and stress-free real estate experience.

    • Our experience with Matt Cannon and Michael Saunders was nothing short of spectacular. Not only did Matt guide us through every step of the process, but did so with enthusiasm and exceptional work ethic. In many cases he had gone above and beyond for my husband and I for which we will always be grateful. From the moment we contacted Matt, we knew that we would find the home in Sarasota that will eventually become our forever home.We feel so fortunate to have worked with Matt and your company and appreciate the excellence in customer service that you provide. It truly has been a pleasure.

    • Since Matt is an accredited buyer's agent, we engaged him to represent us in finding and buying a home. He was extremely responsive and flexible in working with us and gave us great advice along the way. We highly recommend him.

      - Robert and Camille
    • Thank you to Matt and Jenny Cannon whom we had the pleasure of working with to sell our home in Sarasota. From their first visit prior to listing the property, right through to the final closing, they were completely professional, totally responsive and extremely helpful. Our home was professionally photographed and listed for sale within four days and sold to the second family that viewed it, within less than twenty four hours of going on the market. Calls and emails were responded to immediately and nothing was too much trouble, helping to make a stressful time far less so. Matt and Jenny has been recommended to us by friends and we would have no hesitation in recommending them on to others wishing to buy or sell a property in the future.

      - Paul and Liz
    • Thank you Matt for your patience and persistence helping me find my new home. I highly recommend the Cannon's for their professionalism as Realtors in the Sarasota area. My move from out of state was a very smooth transition, they were able to help with the small details of the move which made this a fairly stress free relocation.

    • Matt, you were a VERY BIG help. Personally, I don't know what I would have done without you. The three of us were exhausted from the stress of caring for our brother and dealing with his estate from a distance, and we didn't want to feel we were just "dumping" the home that was so important to him -- even though it needed a lot of work. We knew we could have probably sold it to an investor as-is and be done with it, but we really wanted to fix it up and get real people in there, and you helped us do that. I appreciate your availability to work with all our challenges and my requests and questions. Thank you so much!Marcia

    • We chose Matt as our buyers agent after meeting multiples other agents at open houses and finding his calm and professional (never pushy) approach a perfect match for our style. Matt was always extremely responsive, and knowledgeable, helping us to navigate a relatively unknown area and narrowing down our search parameters. Matt didnt get frustrated when we altered those parameters and was quick to rework search needs and provide new options when required. Matt gave great guidance when negotiating on price but also listened and worked with us on our offers. Matt helped us get multiple contractor quotes for work needed and represented us when we needed to walk through and assess remotely. We would definitely recommend Matt and Jenny Cannon as a partnership that you can put your trust in to work hard to find the right home for you.

    • Matt and Jenny Cannon came highly recommended and they didn't disappoint! It takes skill to market and sale. Anyone can give things away. With our tight time frame and Matt and Jenny Cannon's market positioning, they listed and sold our home above our expectations and in our time frame. Seamless, flawless, classy, calm, and professional from the initial listing to closing on two homes. One of which is our new home! Matt was there the entire time ensuring that we saw the houses in the areas that were important to us. It is important to say that Matt and Jenny Cannon have 21 years of continued experience even through the rough times here in SRQ. And during those rough times, they we're still top sales producers in the area

    • When purchasing a home through a builder, Matt met with us right away and explained the entire process from start to finish. Matt is very professional and knowledgeable realtor. We turned to Matt & Jenny to sell our parent's home.They had it under contract in 3 days and closed with in 30 days! Super Team!!

    • When my husband passed away in August of 2017, I was thrown into a situation with so many decisions to make. One of those decisions was whether of not to sell my house. With the help of my family, I realized I could not keep up the pool, yard work and other issues facing homeowners. Matt and Jenny were referred to me. I connected with them from our first meeting. They were everything you would want in a realtor from start to finish. I was very happy with their negotiating skills to staging skills to sell my house. They are good people who know their business. My house sold within days.

    • Matt and Jenny are wonderful to work with. They truly are there to serve your needs to the fullest. They helped make the purchase of our home a smooth process. In addition, we laid out some guidelines with regard to what we were looking for, and they had several homes that fit our desires. In the event I need future real estate services, I will definitely contact them.

    • Amazing! Can't say enough great things about Matt and Jenny! My wife and I worked directly with Matt and he was always available, he was quick to respond to e-mails, and he always went way beyond our expectations for a "realtor"! We had a renovation-loan and randomly found Matt on Zillow. We had never met Matt before but when we met him it felt like we had been friends for years. Matt went above and beyond, helping us e-mail and call everyone and he advocated for us as the buyers and always over achieved and went beyond our expectations! He also helped close the deal and knew what they were talking about. If you are looking for a realtor you won't find a better one than Matt & Jenny!
