    • Matt approached me from a Make Me Move listing which I posted on Zillow. What made Matt stand out from the other FIFTY realtors who approached me from Zillow was his continued interest over a 6 month period of time, gently checking in with me from time to time, offering to help when needed. Most of the other realtors where here today and gone tomorrow. Furthermore, this was a distressed property and not a typical candidate for market analysis, photos, brochures and open houses. Matt was neither negative nor deterred from this type of listing. In fact, he was enthusiastic! With his strategy, we had a good offer within four days and closing within 2 weeks of listing. He pushed the buyer through escrow and rode this sale to the finish line. What stands out for me is that I felt Matt was truly on my side. I would use Matts services again and I highly recommend Matt!

    • A few of the qualities I look for when working with a real estate agent are promptness,honesty, integrity,and knowledge of the market. These are all qualities you'll find in Matt Helganz. Matt helped me purchase my home back in 2012 and fought for me all the way until the end of escrow and got me in the home I wanted and at competitive price. When it came time to sell the home I again tapped on Matt's expertise. After going over his professional evaluation of my homes' value, he then brought a professional photographer in and took some absolutely amazing photos for the marketing packet he put together. After deciding on a competitive price we listed the home and in only a few short weeks the home was in escrow, thanks to his hard work and dedication. Matt's integration of technology into his business model helps me as a client get through all of the steps of filling out paperwork in a fraction of the time. Matt works closely with other trade professionals in both escrow photography marketing, pest control.... and other fields that helped make my experience flawless. I would highly recommend working with Matthew Helganz. I look forward to working with him in the future.

    • Choosing a real estate agent to sell or purchase property is very critical to satisfaction with the process and end result. We have lived in our area for approximately 40 years and watched many residences change ownership. Most changes were without much problem, but few told of a wonderful experience. Fortunately we chose an ideal agent to sell our residence located in the Linda Vista area if Pasadena, CA. Many agents in this area have many years of successful experience, so too long in that their energy and desire may be softened by that past success history. Mr. Matt Helganz represents a fresh, new class of dynamic, personable and dedicated agents that knows the work needed to be completed to take a property sale to the marketplace at a price point that is in line with current market prices. Matt's knowledge of the law, document requirements, home staging, combined with his never ending energy and warm personality make him a candidate for consideration by anyone looking for an honest, hardworking agent that takes into account the needs of both parties involved in the transaction. Matt works well with other real estate agents and uses social media to maximize property exposure. It is very difficult for us to outline all of Mr. Helganz's attributes, but those in need of a fresh, honest, very personable and dynamic real estate agent that walks with a spring is his step, one would be well served to call on Matt Helganz and his support team that includes an excellent in house, competitively priced escrow agent to control the paperwork if his client should desire such service. We were fortunate to sell our home with Matt's professional assistance during the most difficult time of year for property sales. Mr. Matt Helganz deserves a five (5) star real estate professional rating which we are proud to provide and thank him for his guidance and support .

    • Matt was absolute the right person at the right time for us. From the moment we met with Matt, via telephone (a reach out from me due to a marketing envelope we received from him), Matt was responsive, professional, kind, and extremely patient. He gave us the time we needed to decide when to sell our house, truly understood what it meant to sell our home after 31 years, walked us through every step, answered questions multiple times sometimes, was always available by phone or in person, and is simply a wonderful person, and a person of integrity. We have always considered ourselves blessed to have met Matt Helganz when we did, and without hesitation recommend Matt for any real estate needs you have

    • Matt was professional, personable and awesome to work with! Not at all controlling or pushy as I have heard some realtors can be. He listened to my concerns and moved forward with those in mind. He actually managed to close escrow prior to the 30 days. I had already moved to my new home in Ventura and Matt worked with escrow to submit any documents possible in Docusign format to save me the additional trips to LA. Matt asked me to trust him and I did. He made what could have been a very stressful experience into a successful business transaction.If you are thinking of selling or buying property, I would highly recommend you take the time to meet with Matt Helganz personally

    • My investment partner and I were looking to sell one of our rental properties in the Pasadena area. I had listed the property casually on Zillow with a Make Me Move Price to see what kind of attention it would draw. Matt was probably the 2nd realtor that I had interviewed and there was something about him that gave me confidence in selecting him. Matt is efficient and thorough, while being attentive to his clients' needs. During the process I've come to get to know Matt as a friend and there will definitely be future business coming his way soon

    • We can't say enough good things about Matt! He's simply great at what he does and helped us sell our beloved house and buy an equally impressive one - all at the same time! Matt has extensive knowledge about the Pasadena/South Pasadena/Eagle Rock/Highland Park areas which was quite helpful. He is skilled, meticulous, compassionate, patient, responsive, and aggressive - all qualities that were needed throughout our process. Our deal had a lot of moving parts and Matt negotiated and managed all of it with ease.

      - Renee Sanchez, Pasadena
    • Matt is wonderful! He is knowledgeable, experienced and a pleasure to work with. He made our first time selling a smooth and pleasant experience. He was able to get an all cash, over asking offer after only one day on the market! We definitely recommend Matt.

      - Michelle & Ramon, Pacoima
    • Matt is the BEST of the BEST!! He went over and above to accommodate me in every way possible. He is very thorough, patient, driven and committed to helping his clients get the best price possible. It is a pleasure to highly recommend him to others. I already have and they love him too.

      - Virginia Hayes, Monterey Hills
    • Mr Matt Helganz is the ultimate professional, and very easy to work with. His knowledge of the housing market and the real estate process made the sale of my house proceeded from start to finish as planned. He made a very hard job look easy.

      - Joe Pagano, Alhambra
    • Matt Helganz is an amazing Real Estate professional! This was my parents property they owned for over 65 years. They were the original owners so it was near and dear to me. It was time to sell after my mom passed away and I couldn't have done it without Matt's knowledge and guidance in the area. The term "going above and beyond the call of duty" definitely applies with Matt. Always called when he said he was and follows through with his commitments. I couldn't' recommend Matt more highly! You will be in good hands

      - Nancy Hyatt, Arcadia
    • Matt did an outstanding job selling our home, he was very attentive, timely and helped us immensely. He staged our home perfectly and with his excellent attention to detail he photographed the interior and exterior of our home expertly. I would highly recommend Matt to anyone who is looking to sell or a buy a home as he brings not only his expertise but a viciousness to the process!

      - Frank Cunningham, Pasadena
    • Matt is the BEST! Always available, easy to work with, knowledgeable about the business, and genuinely cares about his clients. We bought our first home and he helped us every step of the way! I highly recommend Matt for all your real estate needs.

      - Marni Wratchford, Long Beach
    • We would absolutely recommend using Matt for either buying or selling your next home. He was incredibly patient, thorough, and accessible. We toured several properties and Matt was able to react quickly and offer sound advice as the market dictated. We are extremely pleased with the results and love our new home!
