Matt McGinnis's Reviews & Ratings

Matt McGinnis

    • I had a wonderful experience with Matt when he helped me purchase my first home 5 years ago, so when it was time to sell he was the obvious choice. There were a lot of uncertainties in selling my home during the pandemic but Matt deftly navigated the various difficulties and obstacles, in getting the house listed & shown with minimal impact to our family. We had multiple offers and Matt walked us through each one ultimately getting a deal done and for well over asking. Then to go above and beyond, Matt took the time to contact and vet various agents in the out of state city we were moving to, making sure we got the right agent that fit our personalities. I trust Matt completely and would recommend him to my closest friends and family.

    • My husband and I highly recommend Matt as your realtor. He was recommended highly through a mutual friend of another physician family that Matt had helped to purchase a home many years prior. We are so grateful we met Matt. We felt that we were his top priority when we worked together. He navigated us through the complicated and stressful experience of home buying with utmost professionalism and poise. He was always punctual and took us on many home tours in Del Sur, Santaluz and 4S Ranch. He was extremely patient in listening to our home requirements. He was always enthusiastic to discuss our concerns and likes. We were able to truly trust him in his ability to express who we were as a family to potential sellers. He provided us very detailed comparisons of other sold homes in neighborhoods. He also kindly gave us direction and advise throughout the home buying process. He is an excellent communicator and negotiator and these qualities ultimately lead to him helping us secure our dream home. Overall Matt is an honest and down to earth gentleman who was very easy to communicate with. He truly cared about us as his clients and he was fully invested in our goal of attaining home ownership. He is hands down the best realtor because he is truly a really nice and genuine person.

    • This was the 5th and 6th transactions that Ive completed using Matt. He continues to be incredibly knowledgeable, reliable and trustworthy. Having an agent that is truly looking out for my best interests is such a comforting feeling. I trust Matt completely and you should do.

    • Helped us look at over 15 homes and writing 10+ offers. Helped us adapt our strategy to getting our offer accepted as time went on and it worked! Would definitely work with Matt again.

    • I used Matt to sell my house when I was getting relocated out of state for work. I worried going in as I would be in another state for nearly the entire selling process, but my nerves were quickly calmed once I chose Matt as our realtor. He was very organized with what needed to be done and communicated with me on a daily basis. We had to sell the house quickly and Matt had a plan to ensure that happened. He helped us with staging, professional photo/videos, maintenance issues and even watered the plants for us when the sprinklers broke! We got 12 offers and sold the house within 5 days thanks to Matt. Thank You

    • We are repeat clients of Matt and cannot recommend him enough. We had a great experience working with him when he helped us buy our home four years ago. Fast forward four years and two kids later we needed more space and decided to put our house up for sale. Anyone who has sold a home knows there is a lot to navigate in the selling process. Matt was always attentive, knowledgeable, and made us feel at ease. He also knows the market inside and out. Our house was listed on a Thursday and had four offers above list by the end of the weekend. Our final sale price was $65k above list.

    • From beginning to close, Matts level of dedication, patience, and attention to detail was outstanding. As anyone can imagine, the process of purchasing a home for the first time can be incredibly daunting. However, Matts deep knowledge of the San Diego housing market and his good humor made the process seamless and enjoyable. What separates Matt the most from other realtors is his natural ability to not only be a true advocate for his clients, but an effective liaison who bridges the gap between buyers and sellers. Most notably, during the extensive home inspection process, Matt secured us the repairs and credit we requested while still remaining fair to the sellersA true win-win for both parties.I will forever be grateful to Matt for always looking out for my familys best interest and helping us purchase our dream home. He will undoubtedly remain our trusting real estate advisor and advocate for years to come.

    • Matt showed his expertise and professionalism when it comes to real estates. He was very patient with me and Clarissa when we're house hunting. I will recommend Matt McGinnis to my friends in a heartbeat!

      - 08/26/2020 - Patricia Bought a Townhouse home in 2020 in San Marcos, CA
    • We can't speak highly enough of our experience with Matt McGinnis. We were first-time homebuyers with very little knowledge about how to find the right place. Once we met with Matt, we knew instantly that he was the one for us. He is honest and hands-on, and he really helped to take the pressure off of us.We never felt forced to make an offer and when we finally found the "one", Matt walked us through every step of the negotiations, even suggesting that we write a letter to the sellers to explain why we thought they should choose us. It was an unconventional approach but it worked and we thank Matt for that every day! We have several friends looking for homes and thinking about selling, and we always recommend Matt to them!

    • Matt is a true professional. We have utilized his expertise on multiple occasions with various objectives on both the buy and sell side (primary residence, investment properties) with great success. I would highly recommend Matt for you real estate needs.

    • This is my second transaction working with Matt as a buyer and I cant say enough good things about him. He is extremely knowledgeable and thorough about all aspects of the buying process from start to finish. He was readily available to answer every question I had and made the buying process as seamless as possible. During negotiations with potential sellers, his expertise really shines and allowed us to make a successful purchase on a highly competitive property. Matt will work hard for you and grind to make sure all your real estate needs are met

    • Its was amazing working with Matt. My brothers, sister and I lost our Mom to cancer in Aug of this year! We found ourselves having to sell the family home! Matt guided us through the process with his expert knowledge and amazing understanding! He truly couldnt have done it without him!!! We closed on time and even got more than asking price!

      - 11/05/2019 - Tann Wolfe Sold a Single Family home in 2019 in Poway, CA
    • We used Matt once to purchase our "starter" home in 2014 and again in 2019 to sell the home. Could not recommend him strongly enough. His expertise, instincts, experience and responsiveness are flawless and, well, the results speak for themselves. We spent quite a bit of time discussing list price strategy for our recent sale and the number we listed at was able to generate 5 offers at or above list within 4 days of being on the market. His connections in the industry were also invaluable (stagers, handymen, contractors, etc) were top notch as well. Finally, on a more personal note, his style is what separates him from others. We have never felt as though he had anything but our best intentions at heart and there is a certain calmness and friendliness to his demeanor that has always made him a pleasure to work with. No "salesman" mentality to him at all. The guy is an absolute stud.
