“Matt was a very professional agent. Very knowledgeable of the community and the current market. He was always responsible and responded to my calls. He answered any questions was always personally involved in helping me with handy man etc. Being recently a widow I need his help several times. I would recommend this honest and helpful agent to my friends.” – D. Fauscett, 12/14/2017

“I had a great experience with Matt. Matt tells you the truth which isn’t always what you want to hear and works to help you understand the market at how it’s responding at the moment. He is very helpful providing information and vendors to help you get your house ready to sell …. I used at least 5 of his people and they all did an excellent job. I had a short window to get my house sold and Matt got the job done even coming to my house the night before the closing to trim some tree branches for the closing the next morning! Matt will get your house sold.”

“Made it seem easy. He did all the worrying. Take the time to meet a few other agents and then see him. You will be able to tell the difference. I am a cynical person but I trusted him right from the beginning and it paid off. The house sold quickly and he handled everything. I had returned to NYC and I didn’t have to go back. Payment was fast and I was very pleased with the final amount.”
-Michael Kagen, 6/14/2017

“Matt offered sound advice on the handling of the sale of our home. His assessment of the market, the comparative of our home versus others in the neighborhood and the strategy of how to negotiate were spot on. Matt knows the East Cobb market quite well, we trusted him to help us find the home and we trusted him with it’s sale, I think that speaks volumes.”
-Jeff Lisenbey, 5/17/2017

“Matt was realistic about our challenges in selling our home. He was active, energetic, and street smart in marketing our home in an aggressive manner. His savvy and local knowledge were invaluable in extracting a high value. He fulfilled promises and commitments, and was 24/7 available to us. He is trustworthy, committed, and dedicated. I would recommend that you at least interview him and consider his services; you would, in fact, be rather foolhardy not to do so. You will be impressed.”
-Frank Merritt, 4/2/2017

“Matt had a team of crucial resources to prepare my house to sell and then helped me get through a number of sticky issues to finally get my house sold. Although it was a long haul, Matt did what was needed to get across the finish line! He has an extensive network of just the right people to make things happen when needed. Thank you, Matt!”
-Margaret McIntyre, 11/21/2016

“When I sold my house there was another house in the neighborhood listed by one of those “no commission” type realtors. Based on the price we got, we fared better paying the commission and going with Matt. He was very professional, and made sure all was set up before we listed. Then after the best offer turned out to be one where they wanted us to cover every small detail on the inspection, he helped us to go to another buyer who was much more reasonable and we actually ended up with a higher price. I would highly recommend Matt if you are selling a home in the Marietta or East Cobb are of Atlanta.”
-John Gary, 9/15/2016

“Excellent experience with Matt Hester and Associates! He sold our home in less than a month!

-Kristi Nash, 9/14/2016

“We met with Matt two months before we actually listed our home. Matt suggested several things which he felt needed attention. After discussing his suggestions we decided to make the improvements he suggested, and after two months of work we listed. Matts knowledge of the market conditions proved to be what we needed . From listing to contract was just a little over three weeks and a timely closing thereafter. Matt and his staff were with us every step of the way, professional and competent in every aspect . We would highly recommend Matt Hester Homes. Working with Matt and his group made selling our home a truly pleasant experience.”
-Richard Yunger, 8/29/2016

“Matt Hester and his team successfully sold our East Cobb home after we were unsuccessful with other agents. I would, and have, highly recommend(ed) Matt Hester & Associates and only wish we had found them first. His support, counsel and direction were invaluable in the sales process. As a matter of fact, Matt is closing next week on a friend’s house after we suggested him- in less than three weeks!”
-Robert Andrews, 8/18/2016

“Matt did a wonderful job helping us find our new home. He was able to sell our previous home and give us some great options for a new house in the area we wanted. He took a personal interest in helping us and spent time showing us house until we found the perfect one. We are very satisfied and would recommend him and his team to everyone.”

“Matt Hester and team were exceptional in listing and selling our home. He was a very professional agent in knowing exactly what steps to take in listing our home for a prompt sale.”
-Anita Harr Quillen, 8/5/2016

“In December of ’06 Matt sold my house in 10 days over Christmas and New Year’s. We got our asking price and I was thrilled. A month before we put it on the market Matt advised me on what repairs I needed and how to “stage” my home. It was a care free experience from listing to closing. Since then he has sold my oldest son’s house, helped his family find a new home, helped my second son and his family find a home and most recently helped my youngest son by a house and my daughter a condominium in midtown! Thanks Matt!”

“We wouldn’t be where we are without Matt Hester!! He found our dream home location the day the For Sale by Owner sign went up in the hot East Cobb housing market! We had been looking for months, so we were quite particular. Once we got this spot under contract, he also sold our house. To say he is helpful is an understatement! We highly recommend working with Matt Hester! Thanks for everything, Matt!”
-Jessica Swiger, 7/26/2016

“Matt and his team managed my property for five years with expertise, professionalism, patience, fairness for the tenant, as well as myself, the homeowner. When it came time to sell, his team was “all hands on deck” with a contract within a week after listing! They go above and beyond the call of duty of satisfying you, as if you are their sole client! They are deserving to be rated #1 in Cobb County! When you list with them, it’s a bullseye!”
-Diane Weaver, 7/25/2016

“The customer service was A++. It started with an extensive walk through of the house and property with excellent ideas on how to market the home. When I called someone answered or returned my call shortly after. The closing process was described in great deal and all of my questions were answered to my satisfaction. I will be using Matt Hester & Associates for my next sale and highly recommend them to you.”
-Mark Radd, 7/22/2016

“Matt Hester and his team were great to work with for the sale of our home. He went above and beyond adding little touches that we have not experienced with other agents. The house went on the market on Thursday and we had a contract on Saturday after multiple offers. His team kept us informed all the way through closing. Highly recommend Matt!”
-Linda Rose, 7/17/2016

“Matt’s method of selling our home was fabulous. No long period of having your home shown over weeks or months. He opted for showing it over 3 days with bids taken the fourth day. We had a high bid by day three. He is the best agent we have ever seen in 8 moves over our lifetime. Gets your house sold quickly!”
-Gail Lightfoot, 7/15/2016

“I used Matt Hester & Associates for both buying and selling. My experience with Susie Barnhill on the buying side was wonderful – she is honest, experienced, listens to what you are looking for, and helps make recommendations on what can fit your needs. We had such a great experience that we decided to list with the same firm, which also was a great experience. Matt knew the market well, helped us make good decisions for what to update / not update in the home, when to list and for how much, and got us above listing price for our home! I would definitely recommend this group for any real estate needs.”

“Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $500K in Marietta, GA.
From start to finish Matt made the experience easy and as low-stress as possible. His stager, Andrea, suggested the changes necessary to show our house at its best. Then photographer, Kate, made our staged house look amazing online. In the office, Dena wrote up the description of our home that made it sound so appealing. To determine pricing, Matt brought in an appraiser who surprisingly appraised the house significantly higher than any in our neighborhood had sold, at which point Matt’s advice on pricing was invaluable. Matt’s assistant, Amber was beyond helpful with every question and detail regarding the process and paperwork. We put our house on the market on a Thursday and on Friday had three offers over asking price, with which Matt began negotiations. In the end our home sold for over asking price, and higher than the highest previous selling price in our neighborhood. Much to our frustration our buyers were demanding, as well as especially unyielding during the inspection negotiations. Matt’s advice and compromise recommendations were the only reason the deal was saved. Matt’s guidance throughout the ordeal kept us moving forward. He truly is the best around. We already have recommended Matt to many of our neighbors and will recommend him to everyone else who asks.”

“Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Marietta, GA.
Matt worked with my husband and I for over 4 years before we actually sold our home and bought a new one. I chose Matt because he is very passionate about our neighborhood and I felt he could get top dollar for our home. The photos were professionally taken and the home showed beautifully on all sites. Matt also made the process of buying a new home very easy walking us through each and every step. I would highly recommend Matt and his team for a sale or purchase.”
