"Matt really went above an beyond in helping us sell our home. He met with us in our home and went over comparable properties and helped us understand the State College market. He helped understand how to best stage our home for buyers to look at and drummed up a lot of interest in our property. Matt provided us with an outline as soon as we went pending to help us better understand the next steps in selling our home after we accepted an offer. He walked us through the negotiation of inspection items and helped us navigate the process from start to finish! Matt also helped us select an attorney for our Deed prep and attended closing on our behalf. Matt really did make us feel valued as a client and when we needed a vendor Matt always provided us with great options. Matt offered us a well rounded experience and knew this business and market inside and out!"  -Gregory Palmer

"I don't even know where to begin, singing Matt's praises. If you are a first-time buyer or new to the market, Matt is the man for you! We had some really sensitive concerns with where we would buy, based off our safety/neighborhood feel, etc. and Matt was honest and clear with us about which neighborhoods were better fits and which weren't. This honesty helped us hang in there until just the right place opened up -- we feel great in our neighborhood. We also were first-time buyers with limited flexibility on price. Matt never treated us like lesser clients, and he made sure our house had every single thing on our wish list. As first-time buyers, we also REALLY appreciated Matt's expertise on house features, state of repair, general estimates for repair costs, etc. While Matt always suggested deferring to a professional for estimates, he was extremely helpful, honest and clear about the realities of each house we viewed. Matt NEVER stopped working for us -- he was accessible pretty much 24/7 and we never felt like we were bringing information to him. He always "did his homework," and when he said he would get us additional info, get us a showing, or make a call... he always did. Right away. Lastly, it was Matt's negotiation skills and stellar reputation within the real estate community (including his rapport with other buyers and selling agents) that helped us secure our home in a desirable, competitive neighborhood. If you are trying to get into the State College area market, you can prepare for a lot of heartbreak and fast-paced moves -- without an agent who can make moves and act with confidence like Matt does, I would imagine an already difficult market is that much harder. Matt used his expertise, his skills and his relationships to make sure we had an awesome experience. We can't recommend him enough: he is kind, thoughtful, professional, super smart, helpful, efficient, and knows his market. THANK YOU, MATT" - Chelsea & Karen Moroski

"Matt was excellent to work with as a buyers agent and help get me into a competitively priced entry level home in State College area. He also helped me by setting up all of the inspections and recommending home service companies like heating oil providers and with the exception of the home inspection company they were all excellent. I would highly recommend matt as a buyers agent and plan on using him again for any real estate needs in the State College area."

"Matt was very helpful during our home buying process. He knows the local market, and kept us informed during every step of the process. His connections with sellers and other agents was very helpful."

"Working with Matt was excellent and easy - I would HIGHLY recommend him. I would work with him again and again. His suggestions, knowledge, and patience were invaluable, especially as a first time home buyer."

"Matt is very friendly and honest to work with. He took care of everything for me while I was not in town! He would go beyond his way to provide the help you need! Thanks Matt!" - Julie Li

"Matt was an excellent and helpful guide to our house hunt in Centre County! He was always readily available to provide help and guidance. His extensive knowledge of the properties in the area prevented us from going to some houses that wouldn't fit our needs. We toured nearly a dozen homes with Matt before finding our dream home! He guided us through the entire process." M. Bower

"Matt is the best. He knows the market. My house sold in 24 hours with full price offer. He is very knowledgeable about helping with all aspects of buying and selling."

"Nothing but great things to say about Matt Barr. First off let me say that I moved from Southern California to Centre County PA. I'm literally across the country. Matt took the time to send me tons of information on the area, schools and everything else. Before he sold me a home, he sold me on PA. The entire process with Matt from start to finish was excellent. He took the time to answer any and all questions and look at houses for me even though I was 3,000 miles away. He listened to what we wanted in a house and found the perfect house for us." - Tim King
