Matt Whitcomb
Coldwell Banker Realty
About Matt

Matt Whitcomb brings a wealth of experience, market knowledge, and a commitment to superior service that achieves results for his clients. He attributes much of his success to the belief that every client, at every price point, deserves a full-service luxury real estate experience. Matt is a true Southern Gentleman raised on the principles of authenticity, courtesy, and respect for others. After graduating from Virginia Tech in 1999 with a double major in Marketing and Business, Matt packed his car and pioneered West to pursue his dreams. Just two weeks later he was hired as part of Universal Studios Recreation Group's Interactive Marketing team. At Universal, Matt was responsible for coordinating with both internal and external creative agencies to ensure projects remained on brand and on schedule. He also served as the key cross-divisional liaison on multiple synergy teams, co-branded promotions (Jurassic Park 3), and global technology implementation task forces. In 2005, Matt returned to Virginia to help reinvent his family's regional DISH Network business. It was during this time that Matt and his wife purchased their first home. Unfortunately, the representation they received as first-time buyers left them feeling lost and overwhelmed. It was this experience and the ultimate sale of the house that sparked Matt to commit the rest of his professional career to real estate sales. In 2013 Matt returned to California and launched his real estate career to fuse his business, marketing, and construction background with his passion for real estate. Matt prides himself on helping his clients realize their dreams and navigate necessary life changes with integrity and an authentic commitment to their success. He believes every home has a story to tell and develops well-organized and creative marketing strategies that reach a targeted audience to achieve his clients' goals and exceed their expectations. His analytic knowledge of the dynamic Orange County real estate market combined with an understanding of home construction and desire to provide support and guidance through every step of the transaction ensures Matt finds his buyers their perfect home in a neighborhood that matches their lifestyle. By aligning with Coldwell Banker Realty, Matt offers his clients the unrivaled reach and innovate marketing tools provided by the world's most trusted global real estate brand and guided by leadership that understands the local market. Matt lives in South Orange County with his wife and two children and enjoys the area's diverse population, vibrant culture, and the incredible variety of outdoor activities. He is a strong community advocate and has volunteered his time with great organizations such as the Tony Hawk Foundation and Cub Scouts.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Sherman Oaks?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Sherman Oaks?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Sherman Oaks to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Sherman Oaks is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
