“Matt Flynn was our real estate agent when we sold our house in San Francisco. Neither my partner nor I could be more satisfied with all he managed to do for us. He works hard and well and secured the best deal in our situation that was possible. He knows all the real estate regulations and can handle them effortlessly. I would wholeheartedly recommend him. He is also personable and comfortable to be with, and he has subsequently become a friend.
In all, when it had come time to sell our property, Mr. Flynn was recommended to us, and I remain fully happy that he had been. I would summarize my experience as perfect and would recommend him to anyone who is interested in selling or purchasing property in the Bay Area.”

“I was a first-time buyer in the San Francisco market. My budget was small, and my choices therefore, were limited. I met Matt at an open house, and boy am I glad that I did! He understood the frustration I faced in finding something affordable and livable, without needing much more than a few cosmetic changes. He worked closely with me for about six months, showing me potentially interesting properties as they came on the market, letting me know what the total costs for purchase would be, along with the pluses and minuses to each property. He finally found me a small condominium in The Hamilton, a little-known complex in the upper Tenderloin, with arguably some of the most affordable real-estate in the city. It was a probate sale, so it could potentially have been a more difficult transaction, but as Matt had experience in these types of sales, it went extremely smoothly. I got an excellent price, as Matt was clever in finding some keen and significant negotiation points along the way which made all the difference. Some years later, Matt later helped me with the sale of this same unit, for a better property in the same building. As anyone who has had to sell and buy at the same time knows, this can be a very stressful event, as there are many moving parts, and everything needs to fall into place just right. Matt was there for me every step of the way, making sure that I got top dollar for my unit, while also getting the best possible deal on the new condo. Matt was transparent and always available to answer questions. I never felt as if I had to figure it all out by myself, as I’ve felt with other realtors I’d worked with. Matt’s purpose isn’t all about the money; Matt loves to help people. Matt likes to see his clients satisfied with their purchase, and to have some fun along the way. Matt isn’t just a real estate agent, he’s a vocal, and ethical advocate for his customers.”

“I wouldn’t trust anyone but Matt to handle my real estate transactions.
When it became time to sell my SF Victorian home of 25 years, Matt Flynn took on the job. It started with hiring good people to fix a lot of problems. Then he met with my friends, family, and housemates to assure that everyone was on-board. It was difficult for me, but Matt took the process personally and we worked out the details together. I never felt pressured into expedient actions. Where I was going seemed as important to Matt as was selling the house – he was willing to tear up the listing agreement if I changed my mind. Yet we both knew it was the right thing to do and he helped me keep on course. Once a buyer was found, Matt worked with them to smoothly resolve problems, letting nothing phase him. All-in-all, I enjoyed working with Matt and felt he did a great job marketing my home. I’d certainly recommend him to others.”

“Matt is the kind of guy that rolls up his sleeves and gets things done. When we sold our house in Santa Barbara, he showed up with a Van, helped us decide what to keep and what to throw way, found us someone to help get rid of old books, helped load the Van and got the stuff moved up north. When we were looking for a place to buy as a rental in San Francisco, he helped find the perfect home, interviewed potential renters, and had the place occupied as Escrow closed. If we needed help with anything he’s been Matt on the spot, ready to help with suggestions. He studies very diligently and knows Real Estate values very well. I’m sure that whatever you ask Matt to do, he’ll get it done quickly and efficiently, and get you the best price whether you’re buying or selling.”
– George Gardiner in Foster City, California
“We were looking for a house to buy in San Francisco. A friend recommended Matt Flynn. We talked with him and liked him. It was a time when houses for sale were scarce and were selling well over asking. Matt worked with us for several months, looking for the perfect house. He understood what we wanted and never wasted our time with unacceptable houses. He found us the house we wanted, showing it to us on the first day it was available, and he got it for us at asking, which was very nearly a miracle. Matt worked tirelessly for us and succeeded in a very difficult market. We recommend him without reservation.”
– Rudd Canaday and Jerry Walters in San Francisco, CA
“After I left real estate, I referred my best clients to Matt; they were all very grateful to have him taking care of their real estate needs efficiently, profitably and professionally.”
