Tell Us Your Story

Matt has been a pleasure to work with; he’s truly someone you can rely on to help you find the perfect loving space.

He negotiates on your behalf, gets past any potential red tape, and keeps you highly informed throughout he whole process. I’ve used apartment hunter groups before and they don’t  hold a candle to the services Matt provides. He cares about his clients and goes the extra mile to make sure you’re getting the right place and within your timeline. He helped me to have found a place with a new lease signed where I was able to get moved in within about 2 days time.

Matt was great!

He quickly helped create a list of potential properties that fit our specifications and had a deep fund of knowledge of each of the units. One of the best parts of working with Matt was his communication, he was always quick to respond and was patient with my many questions, even  late at night. He then helped negotiate on our behalf, and kept in touch through each step of the signing process. I would not hesitate to work with Matt again, and I would recommend him to anyone in search of a realtor.

Working with Matt was not only effective and effortless but an overall amazingly simple experience.

 With a quick time crunch to fir a place to live, I was able to leverage Matt to find a slew of apartments that fit all my criteria and a move in date that fit in my timeline.  Matt lined up 5 showings in a matter of days and took us to each location.  He was very well prepared and brought all relevant information we might need.  Anything that wasn't available, he sprung to action and quickly returned with the answer.  The hardest part of working with Matt was just deciding between the great selection of apartments!  Just a great experience and I highly recommend that anyone looking to move leverage the expertise and simplicity of Matt Thomas!

Matt was extremely helpful and professional throughout my apartment search process.

As soon as we connected, he immediately created a few customized filters to search the MLS for potential listings. He was very communicative via text, email, and phone. Each time we scheduled apartment tours he  organized everything and made the entire process very seamless and easy. He picked me up and took me to each apartment. I was really impressed with his knowledge of what to pay attention to when looking at apartments (i.e. how the floors and walls are taken care of, looking for any potential issues), as well as negotiation strategies. Matt is very on top of everything throughout the process, quickly responded to me whenever I reached out and clearly puts the needs of his customers first. If you’re looking for someone who is willing to go the extra mile, Matt is your guy!

Matt was referred to me by a colleague and from the first phone call I knew I was in good hands.

Being new to the city, he helped me find the best areas of the city to focus my search and sent me properties that were tailored towards my wants and needs. I felt overwhelmed, to say the least, doing  the search on my own. The search process became enjoyable as he sent me properties to view in the MLS. He was quick to respond to additional questions and eager to go view apartments for me since I was searching from out of town. I would definitely recommend Matt to anyone that is looking to rent/buy in the Chicagoland area.

Matt was such a great help in my apartment search.

He did a great job finding places that would meet my needs and quickly setting up viewings for any promising listings. Matt was an absolute pleasure to work with and really helped to take a lot of the stress out of the apartment hunt. I would  definitely work with him again for future searches!

I worked with Matt prior to his jump into real estate for a handful of years so when my lease was coming up, I knew who I could reach out to.

Matt's commitment to his job shined throughout the apartment hunting process. He proactively sent me links to places that matched my criteria, he responded  to me quickly through multiple platforms (text, facebook,B&W Website), and he always had printouts of all the places we were going to look at so I had them handy walking around the apartments. Matt knew I was in a time crunch (especially with my work travel schedule) and worked around that and made sure I found a place I loved! I would highly recommend working with Matt, whether you are looking to buy or even just looking to rent like I was!

Matt was great!

He was able to set up four apartment visits in a limited time window for us with only a week of notice. He was even able to include two that had come on the market the day before we toured--which were the best ones! This was my first time looking for apartments in Chicago and he  was extremely helpful, prepared, and even drove my roommates and I around so that we could get an idea of the area we were interested in.

It was an absolutely wonderful experience searching for a rental property with Matt.

I have worked with several agents during my time in Chicago, and he was by far the best. He is the most knowledgeable, committed, and responsive realtor I've worked with. He was constantly in communication with us  and proactive in assisting with finding the perfect place. It felt as though we were his only client. We had very specific requests surrounding what we were looking for in a rental, and Matt could not have been more helpful. I would highly recommend Matt to anyone.

Adam K.

I was living in South Carolina at the time and was not able to make it to Chicago for every rental I was interested in.

Matt was very understanding and went above and beyond to help me out to find the right place. I dont think I would have found the right place without his help.

Matt was a pleasure to work with during my house hunting in Chicago.

I was operating on a major time crunch and he didn't waver at all. He asked if I wanted to run a marathon or half marathon during the first day of house hunting. We agreed marathon since it would be the closest either of us would get to running one. So, off we went. I think we saw 10-13 homes on day 1. I was able to narrow down options and off he went negotiating!! By 10 a.m. the following day he had feedback and suggested strategy to see a few homes that afternoon. That evening I made my selection and Matt guided me through the process. I absolutely could not have completed my house hunting trip without his guidance. I highly recommend him and will definitely use him when it's time to shop again.

Monique R.

I was in a situation where I had less than a week to find a new rental before my current lease expired and Matthew was able to get the job done in less than a day.

Matthew was extremely helpful. He had a sense of urgency to find me a place. Overall I would highly recommend Matthews services to all  my friends and family.

Matt was a life saver!

He helped me to identify new apartments for rent under a deadline, while at the same time helping me to understand my options for buying and connecting me with a Loan Coordinator. Matt was calm and positive during a stressful process for me; he was responsive to specific and even minor feedback such as changing search radius by a few blocks. I’d highly recommend Matt for any rental or home buying needs you have!

It was great working with Matt.

He was extremely helpful in finding us apartments that met all of our needs. We were all unable to go to Chicago to look at places so he went and took pictures and videos of the units for us to see. He also made detailed notes on things that were hard to see on the  video. Not only was Matt helpful finding the right apartment, but he has continued to stick with us once we signed. We had a problem with our apartment not being completely cleaned when we moved in and Matt worked with us and our landlord to help alleviate the issue. I would highly recommend Matt to people in the future.

I started working with Matt in my search for a new home 6 months ago and I'm happy to say that today I'm writing this review from my new home.

Matt was diligent, responsive and excellent in every aspect throughout this process. From finding the perfect home and being patient when I was unsure. He  made sure I was completely comfortable with the location, price and provided a truly honest opinion about the properties I was seeing. He also provided great questions to the listing agents that I myself didn't think about making it feel like a team effort. In addition, the purchase of my property was not the smoothest due to delays in the closing process and Matt was able to keep all parties engaged and moved the process as quickly as possible. I would strongly recommend any buyer looking to purchase a property to work with Matt. I promise you he will not disappoint.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Matt.

He was extremely helpful and very diligent. He was quick to respond to any of our requests or questions. He has a great understanding of the Chicago neighborhoods and demonstrated masterful expertise of the apartment searching process. When we were not  able to see the places in person, he went out and saw them himself and recorded videos for us. In addition, he shared notes and his honest opinions on each place. He helped us vouch for us in a competitive applicant pool and assisted with the negotiation process. He even helped us with some land lord issues even after we signed for a place and moved in. I would definitely recommend working with Matt to anyone looking for an apartment in the Chicago area. He is dedicated and hard working, and he will get the job done.

Matt helped us find an AMAZING deal on a 3 bed, 1400 sq ft.

unit in Lakeview. He worked with our schedule and took us around to 5/6 locations over the course of a couple days. They were all within the constraints we proposed which made the decision process a little tough, but he tells it like there is and isn't there to try to coerce you into buying one place over another. It felt as though he was an old friend providing his thoughts. Highly recommend!!
