Hello Matt, I just wanted to take a minute now that the house is sold to thank you for everything you did to help get our house ready to be sold. From the start of the project, you went above and beyond (and even beyond that) time and time again to make sure that the work needed came together in the quickest time possible. With me not being local, you picked up assignments and made sure they were done right too many times for me to count. Without your help, and excellent handyman skills, it would have taken so much longer to get the house ready for listing. It was also wonderful that you are so well connected with service providers, this was a big help with me not living in the area. The people you picked to help with the work to get the house ready did great work at a very reasonable price too. When it came time to list the house, you devoted yourself to holding open houses nearly every weekend until it was sold. I'm very thankful for your dedication and professionalism as well as your friendship. Thanks again for selling our house quickly and at a great price.

Matt Masson Recommendation: For most ordinary folks who are buying or selling a house, the part about using a broker or real estate agent is one where you grit your teeth and resign yourself to the ugly fact that using an agent is the standard procedure and you just have to put up with in order to accomplish the mission. In general, it seems that they get a lot of money for very little work. In my case, the commission was almost $40,000. Do you have any idea how long it takes me to save $40,000? I don’t even want to think about it!
But now, after having sold my house with Matt Masson as my agent, I realize that, at least in my circumstance, Matt earned every penny. What he did for me before the sale, during the negotiations, and even after the closing, was above and beyond what one would expect. Before I put the house on the market, Matt rolled up his sleeves and helped me with the hard work of getting the house ready. Matt wasn’t just pointing out what needed to be done, he jumped right in and shoulder-to-shoulder helped me do the hard work before me. For the pre-listing effort, Matt went beyond what I suspect 98% of other agents would have done.
During the sale process, we ran into major roadblocks. The negotiations were challenging and terse. There were a number of instances when it came to a crossroad, and I felt the deal was going to fall out. Even after we were in contract, complications with the inspections and the appraisal again created a palpable risk of losing the deal. This period of uncertainty created, angst, financial uncertainty, extreme emotional reactions amongst the interested parties on both sides. The entire time Matt was a calm voice, level head, wise advisor, and supportive “corner man” who kept the deal on track and kept the final objective foremost on everyone’s screen. I suspect most agents would have complained, delivered ultimatums with their self-interest in mind, let their frustrations show, or otherwise lost faith. Matt kept the process on course and delivered moral support, at the most crucial times. Even when the sale closed, Matt was still available, ready to help with the move-out and do whatever he could to ensure that everyone came away satisfied.
In summary, Matt came through in the best of style, did everything required of him, and so much more. His experience, skill and considerable effort was necessary for a successful conclusion to the difficult challenge of the sale of my house; at a time when I don’t think many other agents could have performed at the same level. Matt gets my highest recommendation because he earned it.

Matt - I want to thank you for all that you did in helping us to sell our home. We could not have done it without you. After twenty years in our home, the process of selling and moving was most daunting and you guided us with sensitivity and clarity every step of the way. We were partners in the process and what could have been an entangled web of confusion became a process where we never felt alone.
You helped us know what to do to get the house ready for sale and you even helped us physically get it ready. You knew the right people to prepare the house with painting and staging. You added your own personal touches to the house that made it more interesting and appealing. You arranged for a photographer who presented our home in the best possible way. You kept us upbeat and patient during the fallow times and because of you we weren’t discouraged. When a good offer came, you handled it with acumen and guided us through the complexities that led to a sale that without you might have not been made. Even after the closing you stayed in touch and handled the loose ends that could have become problems.
We are now settling into our new home in just the way we had hoped and without you, I just don’t think it would have happened. Throughout the whole process you were the ultimate professional, giving us security that all was being handled just as it should be. Moving is still a hassle, but you took us through the process with personal caring, great individual attention and consummate skill. With deepest appreciation, we thank you.

Dear Matt, I would like to take a moment to let you know how fortunate I am to have had you as my real estate agent, and to acknowledge what an incredible job you did in selling my property. Your years of experience and expertise in real estate were invaluable to me throughout the selling process.
I very much appreciated your advice and help in preparing the house and property for sale, explaining all the required documents, and your words of encouragement to help me navigate the ups and downs of bringing a property to sale. I could not have asked for more complete or better representation to brokers or potential buyers. To sell the property in 39 days is quite remarkable, made even more so in this challenging real estate market. All in all Matt, I believe we had the most successful sale I could ever have imagined, and quite simply I could not have done it without you as my agent. I am grateful to you for always going above and beyond the call of duty on my behalf. My heartfelt thanks to you, and if I should consider buying a house in the future you are the only real estate agent I will call. Sincerely yours

Dear Matt - Mere words cannot express my appreciation for all you’ve done on my behalf in the sale of 209 Butterfield. You took on a project which became messy and complicated yet navigated me through as if it were not messy, and therefore not complicated. As a person of faith I asked god to bless you and your work daily. He was faithful and so were you. So, in order to make up for the lack of words, I hope you will accept the enclosed as a token of my gratitude. Thank you so very much.

Matt, Merry Christmas! Now I owe you for two! Thank you for your professional, diligent, insightful and results producing efforts.

To whom it may concern: - Recently we had the experience of selling our home in West Marin after moving to New England. A challenging experience at best but it could easily have been a negative and overwhelming one without the guidance of an excellent real estate agent. We were very fortunate to have listed our house with Matt Masson and would highly recommend him to others with Marin County property to sell.
Being first time home sellers we were especially grateful for Matt’s years of experience, his county contacts and knowledge, as well as his patience and positive professional outlook. Although we were on the other side of the country we always felt we knew what was going on due to Matt’s excellent communication skills. We were also able to depend on Matt to carry out the variety of tasks needed to have a home on the market, This ranged from supervising repair work to maintaining and optimizing the property’s throughout its listing. During the entire process Matt was supportive and encouraging. Without a doubt he is one of Marin County’s finest real estate agents. Sincerely,
L.Z. and S.F. Cape Cod, MA

Dear Matt, - Well, we made it – but after being a home-owner for a week now, I’m still in shock. And so far, the only difference in my life is that I have a lot more to do and not enough time or money to do it all!
Seriously, I am very appreciative of your excellent efforts on my behalf. You more than earned your commission on this one. And I am very happy that I chose you to work with me over the past several months. Considering that the mortgage broker did it’s best to sabotage the whole deal, you performed magnificently both as a real estate broker and as a supportive friend. You were on top of all the details, kept the line of communication open so I always knew what was (or wasn’t) happening, taught me the things I needed to know and basically held my hand through the whole process. I look forward to working together again and, in the meantime, hope we can get together on a personal level to keep our acquaintance active. I look forward to talking with you soon.
Best regards, F.S. Novato, CA

Matt helped us sell our Mill Valley home in the midst of the COVID pandemic, when the regulations about selling and showing homes seemed to change daily. Matt helped us navigate all of the new regulations, and the many local inspection and disclosure requirements, with patience and good humor. Matt made every effort to keep our house in tip-top condition while it was on the market and as a result we had a very quick sale that exceeded our asking price. We can’t thank him enough for all of his hard work and dedication.

Matt, - My elderly aunt and uncle needed to sell their home in Mill Valley, and a friend recommended Matt. I am very glad they did. Matt has extensive experience in selling senior-owned homes, which present their own specific issues, including extra attentive care and handling, arranging for the proper removal and sale of estate furniture and old junk, patient communication, and dealing with failing memory. Matt executed in all of those areas: he was incredibly patient, caring, and accommodating; he arranged for outside contractors to remove and sell my aunt and uncle’s numerous possessions and dispose of all the junk; and he understood how to present and explain issues and challenges to my aunt and uncle. Before he came on board the house was an unsellable disaster, and he and his team made it look attractive. He also performed, of his own volition, many kind and extremely helpful extras that were beyond our expectations, such as helping us sell my aunt and uncle’s two cars, placing registration stickers on the cars so they wouldn’t get ticketed, forwarding me all of the mail himself, and organizing the numerous house keys so we could easily find what we needed. His communication is excellent, as he would text, call, or email every day with updates, recommendations, action plans, comparable sales, and issues to watch out for. He made us feel that we were important clients who deserved his utmost attention. Additionally, Matt inspires trust because he does not oversell: for example, he could have easily told us to stage the house, but recommended against it because he did not feel it was necessary to spend money on that. The results were fantastic: Matt placed a “coming soon” sign in the front yard and within days a family driving by saw the sign, contacted Matt to see the house, and bought the house for an excellent price. His commission is very fair and reasonable, and better than what other agents had offered. I would highly recommend Matt, not only for seniors but for anyone looking to sell their home. Thank you Matt,

Matt, for anyone who wants to know: - We honestly have never felt in such capable hands throughout a real estate transaction. You anticipated all the things we didn't think of, you took care of them before they became a problem, you kept us apprised on a regular basis, whether that was information on the local market, issues at the condo construction site, or interested buyers' and their feedback. You gave us such confidence and we felt spoiled!

Dear Matt, - Most don’t realize the complex skill set required to be a Realtor. To take Realty to the level of mastery that you have achieved; one must first be a sage, a rebel, a warrior, a connoisseur of fine things, a shaman, a nurturing soul, an actor, a priest, a judge, a seeker of the best of life, and a philosopher, my hat is off to you.

I would need operatic training to sing Matt Mason's praises highly enough. Matt helped our family through a difficult time. Our ailing sister had to sell her home and relocate. Her illness created many challenges in the process. Matt was the consummate professional, assisting her in readying the house for sale and bringing the transaction to a fruitful conclusion. He did it all with energy, compassion, and expertise. We will always be in Matt's debt because he went well above and beyond the duties required of a realtor. He is a stellar individual and fine real estate agent.
