Testimonials for Korby Matsen, R(B)
Korby stuck with our family for 13 months of house hunting, all over the Austin metropolis, Texas! We looked at houses in Round Rock, Cedar Park, Kyle, and Leander! Our first house was struck by lightning before we could close. A month after that of looking for another new home, we found a perfect one for our extended family. After three lenders, one house fire and two appraisals, we are settled in our new home! If you want an agent who will go the distance; chose Korby Matsen, the ROCKY BALBOA of the Austin real estate market!

We’ve worked with Korby before, so when we decided to sell our house he was our first choice. Korby is knowledgeable, patient, and accommodating. He makes you his priority. Our house had multiple offers and was under contract within DAYS of being on the market! The pictures he took and the listing details were top grade. Sold! In looking for a new home we encountered some bumps in the road. We had trouble finding a house to our liking/price range in the area that we wanted to live in. Korby stuck with us and walked us through all of our options. When we finally found a house, Korby helped us negotiate a really good price. We are truly satisfied. Whether you are buying or selling, if you want real results he is the realtor to call.
I met Korby about 3 yrs. ago and asked him to help me find a home to buy. and i'm kind picky i swear the man is a saint because we must have looked at at least 3 dozen homes over the course of year and a half. but he stayed the course and did not give up. He finally found the one i fell in love with thanks Korby. will use you always in the future.
Korby went absolutely out of his way to help me find a home to purchase. He showed me at least 30 properties (some more than once!) over several months and was always available whenever I needed him. As you can guess by the fact that I viewed so many properties, I was a very picky buyer. Korby did a fantastic job of taking my very specific criteria and only recommending places that fit what I was looking for. He showed me houses on my lunch break, after work, and on weekends. I'm sure I ran him ragged but he never complained and made excellent evaluations of each of the places we looked at. When I finally got to the point of narrowing down houses for final offers, he had already put together market comparisons based on the properties he anticipated I'd choose. He knew the market and the realistic pricing points and gave very sound advice when it came to negotiating a final price so that our haggling period was short and absolutely painless. To top it off, he even called me four months after I bought my house just to check in to see how everything was working out and even updated me on a final sale price for a house that he and I both agreed was way overpriced during my initial home search (he was absolutely right--the house eventually sold for $20,000 below its original asking price).
Beyond being good at what he does, he's also just a pleasant person to be around which is a huge benefit when you're dealing with a potentially stressful situation like buying a home. I would heartily recommend Korby for your home buying needs.
