"He not only helped me find my dream house but he gave $500 of his commission to help homeless families"
What do you get when you combine character, honesty, hard-working, passionate, kind and cool? You get Matt Chapman - the best realtor in Bellevue and the ONLY SOCIAL REALTOR as well. He not only helped me find my dream house (through his advice and guidance, our offer was accepted even though it was $15K and $25K less than the other offers) but he gave $500 of his commission to help homeless families with the non-profit of my choice. (He does this with every sale. You pick the non-profit and he donates in your name and gives you a book about it). He is the only Social Realtor that I know of in Seattle.
He is detailed. He is wise. He is funny. He is knowledgeable. He cares. He is in it with you. He always answers the phone. He has good relationships with other realtors. He has a ton of connections with mortgage brokers.
Seriously, I am not sure how else I can say that your experience with Matt will be professional, fun and like a team. I recommended him to a friend who is now selling his house for him. And, lastly, he knows the best coffee places in Seattle and Bellevue.

"Matt is prompt, thorough and provided all of the resources needed to facilitate the sale of our home. I highly recommend Matt and his team!"
Our experience with Matt Chapman was a pleasure from start to finish. Matt is a true professional with excellent communication and negotiation skills. His market knowledge paired with a comprehensive strategy was instrumental in our home sale.
After closing, Matt donated a portion of his fee on our behalf to a local non profit. We are thrilled to have a small part in a special program that benefits the community. Matt is prompt, thorough and provided all of the resources needed to facilitate the sale of our home. I highly recommend Matt and his team! Thanks Matt!

"Matt is a native to this wonderful area so he was able to give us great information about certain areas in which we were interested."
My wife and I worked with Matt to buy our first home and can not recommend him enough! Matt went through battles with us to try and land a home in the turbulent Seattle real estate market. We got to know Matt back at the beginning/middle of 2020 when there was so much uncertainty and he helped us through everything, every step of the way. We finally landed on our perfect home and we couldn't be happier!
Matt goes by the motto of 'I'm in your corner' and he truly is, he will help you and work for you, on your schedule and on your budget. Matt is also just a cool guy to be around, good conversations and loves coffee, so extremely easy to get along with. As non-natives to the Greater Seattle Area, we wanted someone who we could easily get along with and help us through every step of the way (first time home buyers here) including helping us learn more about different neighborhoods. Matt is a native to this wonderful area so he was able to give us great information about certain areas in which we were interested.
Initially, we interviewed about 5-10 realtors and it was a clear decision to choose Matt. He hit all of our check boxes and then some, he has many connections with his family in the real estate business (though he never pressured us to use them), and is there to help you through and through.
Couldn't have been happier with Matt Chapman, we have a house now! :)

"Matt is a connector, he has all the people in place to take care of what needs to be done."
Matt was referred to me by good friends whom he represented when selling their house. Their comments were that Matt made everything fairly seamless and I was not disappointed. I was on a very tight deadline and had a firm price in mind. Matt is a connector, he has all the people in place to take care of what needs to be done. From the quick pre inspection to staging to yard spruce up to making sure the photographer comes and works her magic when the the weather and light conditions are just right, he was on top of it. Matt was always available for questions and followed up after each step do I felt supported throughout the whole process. Would definitely recommend Matt Chapman when you are considering selling your home

"Matt gave us excellent counsel on when and how to sell our home and then crafted a plan with us. He handled every detail with professionalism and personalized attention."
Matt Chapman and his whole team were tremendous from start to finish. We sat down with Matt at the end of July to explore the possibility of selling our Seattle home and making a move to Lacey. Matt gave us excellent counsel on when and how to sell our home and then crafted a plan with us. He handled every detail with professionalism and personalized attention. We followed all of Matt's advice and sold our home at above asking price on the first weekend it went on the market. Matt also handled the purchase of our home in Lacey. He negotiated on our behalf multiple times and got us an excellent deal. Because of some unexpected glitches with the lender, we needed to renegotiate the closing date a couple of times. Matt handled all of these little bumps in a highly professional and "can-do" manner. We could not have asked for a better agent. In addition to his own professionalism, Matt works with good people. We used his recommended cleaners, stager and photographer. All performed their service in an A+ manner. His associates with Windermere were also outstanding. Matt really took care of us and then to top it all off, he gives a portion of his fee to a local charity. We had a favorite Seattle nonprofit and Matt gave to them on our behalf. If you need a buyer's or seller's agent or both, I could not recommend Matt more highly.

"He explained every option and scenario during the process, while still leaving all the decisions up to us."
Matt Chapman was a huge asset to have on our side as we went through the process of selling our home. He explained every option and scenario during the process, while still leaving all the decisions up to us. His guidance ensured we were ready when time came to list. We were under contract in 3 days with an offer above listing price. You cannot go wrong with Matt on your side, and he will do everything in his power to help you achieve your goals

"The way real estate works in Washington was different than we were accustomed to and Matthew walked us through everything we were unsure of."
Matthew has been nothing short of amazing before, during, and after the home buying process.
My family and I were recently moving from out of state, we were confined to our apartment (with two young children) due to the pandemic, but we still needed to move. We had very little knowledge of the area and relied on our instincts when choosing Matthew based on other reviews. Our instincts were never so correct.
From our initial phone conversation, I knew we were in good hands. The way real estate works in Washington was different than we were accustomed to and Matthew walked us through everything we were unsure of. He went to the homes of interest, video conferenced us from the properties and told us his honest opinion of them all. Ultimately, we decided on the home that we all felt was the best fit without ever stepping foot inside it ourselves. When we finally arrived at the home, we were never so happy; it was perfect.
None of this would have been possible without his professionalism, knowledge of real estate and the local real estate market, and personability. There is no real estate agent I trust more than Matthew.

"Matt made the process seem easy and seamless. And, though Matt is too humble to take credit for this, my home sold above asking price in the first 24 hours after it was listed."
I've had the privilege of getting to know Matt quite well over the last five years and know him to be a man of integrity, so when I decided to sell my house in May I knew immediately that I wanted to ask Matt to be my realtor. I was confident that he would do a great job, but, honestly, the quality of his work blew me away.
Here are the highlights of his excellent work. Matt started by asking me lots of questions about my needs and goals, and then he developed a strategic time line of what needed to happen and when. Then, rather than leaving it up to me to implement the plan on my own, Matt and his staff worked with me to schedule the professionals needed to help me prepare my home to be put on the market and to complete all the supporting paperwork. During this process Matt checked in with me from time to time to see how I was doing and if I had any needs or questions related to selling my home. Though all of this happened in a fairly short time frame, Matt made the process seem easy and seamless. And, though Matt is too humble to take credit for this, my home sold above asking price in the first 24 hours after it was listed. I highly recommend Matt Chapman if you are looking for a realtor to help you sell or buy a home.

"With Matt's help, I was able to quickly get an offer on a great home submitted and accepted, despite a sudden deadline due to a competing offer."
Matt walked me through the process of buying my first home. He's patient, knowledgeable, accommodating, and an all around great guy. We had some great conversations while touring homes. With Matt's help, I was able to quickly get an offer on a great home submitted and accepted, despite a sudden deadline due to a competing offer. Matt predicted exactly how the seller and other buyer would behave, making sure I didn't overspend. Highly recommended.

"He always keeps your interests in mind when home buying and will proactively suggest ideas that he believes will help you get the home you want."
I went with Matt as my agent during my first-time home buying process, and I couldn't have been happier. Matt is knowledgable about how to effectively compete in a competitive housing market, and applied that knowledge well enough to help get my offer accepted for the very first home I put an offer for. He always keeps your interests in mind when home buying and will proactively suggest ideas that he believes will help you get the home you want. I strongly recommend him and his team, and would work with him again. Thank you Matt.

"Matt's calm, easygoing, and knowledgeable manner helped to set us at ease during the whole process."
Matt helped us sell our townhouse earlier this year at asking price and we had an amazing experience! Matt's calm, easygoing, and knowledgeable manner helped to set us at ease during the whole process. He always led with his honest assessment of what was possible based on both his own experience and the collective experience of his office. Then, we came up with a plan together and he backed up that plan with positivity and lots of hard work. Matt managed all of our freak outs, including an unexpected week-long snow storm the week before we were originally set to list and our first buyer backing out, with reasoned calm, grace, and flexibility. He was always available to take our calls even on nights and weekends. We were also impressed by his excellent slate of service providers--from painters, to cleaners, to landscapers, to handymen, to stagers--that made our house stick out from the rest. (In fact, seeing everything come together for our first open house made us second guess whether we wanted to move!) If Matt's expert guidance weren't already enough, the fact that we were able to donate a portion of the proceeds to our favorite nonprofit made the whole experience unique and especially meaningful. Matt Chapman has our wholehearted recommendation!

"Matt guided us through what was important for buyers and provided thoughtful advice on updates we should consider before putting the house on the market."
My sisters and I hired Matt to sell our childhood home. We had moved our dad out of the house earlier in the year and definitely had our work cut out for us to get it ready to sell during a not so ideal time, the holidays. Matt guided us through what was important for buyers and provided thoughtful advice on updates we should consider before putting the house on the market. He had a great list of contacts to work with to help get the house ready and the house looked amazing on listing day. Matt was with us every step of the way, providing timely updates and an organized task list to help navigate the paperwork and signings involved with the sale of the house. He made it a smooth process and we are forever grateful! Thank you Matt!
