TestimonialsBelow are some of my Client Testimonials
This is the second time Matt and the team have sold a condo of mine and the third transaction they have been a part of on my behalf and every time they have exceeded expectations! I am not an easy client, and they have never made me feel like a pain in the neck nor were they not willing to accommodate any request I have. They kept me informed and up to date (even when I was micromanagy) and talked me off a ledge more than once.
Selling or buying is a rollercoaster these days and the Shulman team is the seatbelt and safety harness you want and need to get on this ride!

As it happens, Matthew was one of two realtors who lived in my condo building. I had known well before I put my condo on the market that I would choose Matthew. Matthew has always been a very friendly, upbeat person and my gut instinct that he was the ultimate professional, proved to be true. I know that Matthew uses his full name on his website and on his promotional material, but to me he is a Matt because he is a very down to earth person. Matt is also very self-confident. Matt nonetheless was open to any feedback that I offered him.
Matt went above and beyond the call of duty. It was only after my condo was sold, when I was arranging to have some of my belongings picked up to be donated to charity, that I found out that Matt had paid out of his own pocket to have my initial donated property delivered to a charity. As this was my only experience selling a property, it was a rather daunting and stressful experience. As well the market was rather soft. Without Matt’s upbeat personality and constant hand holding, I don’t think I would have made it to the end of the road. Matt was always there to answer my emails/phone calls. Although Matt always made it clear that all decisions were mine, without his expertise and strong communication skills, I would have been lost. And then there’s his personal touch. When I became very sick with a cold, Matt personally dropped by with deli chicken noodle soup.
It was my choice to move out of my condo seven weeks prior to rather long closing date. It was Matt who personally dropped by my apartment to ensure that all was well and so as to not void my insurance policy.
I would happily recommend Matt’s services and Keller Williams to anyone looking to buy/sell/rent their home or apartment.

As you know, the sale of one’s home can be a stressful time, particularly in our case
as we had bought a home unconditionally and did not have the luxury of being able
to hold off offers until a good one was received. Adding to the stress was the
inconvenience of keeping the house presentable for viewings whilst our 18-month-old
thought the “decluttering process” was a game of taking everything out which
we had just put away.
As a Condominium Board member, I have the ability to ensure our homes are financially secure and that investments made will positively affect the value of our building. This cannot be achieved without having a strong Realtor that properly represents the true value of the suites and genuinely has the Seller’s interest at heart. As the agent that represented the majority of the sales within our building over the last 12 months, we believe it was you that influenced the 15% increase in property prices over the last year.
Your ability to handle objections, speak knowledgably about the area and the passion dedicated to your career was reassuring; you commitment to the sale of our property surpassed our expectations, exemplified by the home staging you arranged and the negotiation process which got us our asking price within two days of listing. Although this was a home sale, we know you will have the same level of commitment when buying a home and you’ll be the one looking for our next purchase!

I want to take this opportunity to thank the Matthew Shulman team and to say what
a great job they did. Not only did they sell my condo in 6 days when the market
trends had prepared me for 45 days, they also helped me buy my new condo.
I’m not the easiest client to have and, in fact, I am sure I’m one of the more
challenging ones, but Matt and Mel and the whole team went way above and
beyond and satisfied my every need, wish and desire. They not only got me an
amazing condo, but got me an even more amazing deal.
Their attention to detail, commitment to excellence and willingness to never give up and passion for what they do makes them unstoppable and unwilling to stop until their clients (even the pain in the neck ones like me) are thrilled and get exactly what they want.
If you are buying or selling, pick the Matthew Shulman team and you will get everything you want and then some. Plus you will get it with the highest degree of professionalism and always with a smile.

I recently purchased a condominium with Matthew Shulman. My wife and I are first time
buyers and other than knowing that we wanted to purchase something, we had no real
ideal of where to begin. After speaking with many other agents, we chose Matthew
because he took the time to listen and to answer our many questions. He even went so far
as to send us internet sites, properties and various other “purchasing need to knows”
before we had even signed the Buyer Agency contract. After many lengthy discussions with
Matt, he was able to zone in on exactly what we had in our minds and found us actual
properties that were out on the market that were exactly what we were looking for.
Because my wife and I both have busy schedules, we were only able to free up one day a week to look at properties. Matt set aside many Sundays for us and over the weeks must have shown us at least 40 properties until we found our dream home. If not for having had Matt as our agent, we doubt that we could ever have found anything that was to ideal for both our budget and our lifestyle. My wife and I wake up each morning with the sun shining through our bedroom window and think how lucky we were to have found and purchased such an incredible home. We were even luckier to have found Matthew! We would recommend Matthew Shulman to anyone who will listen to us sing his praises!

As first time sellers we were very nervous about selling our house in light of the current economic state. You educated us about the real estate market and how we needed to position ourselves in order to facilitate a quick sale at fair market value. You infused the entire process with your integrity, patience and realistic optimism. With your guidance, our house was transformed into a very sought after property. Thanks to you, our house sold in one week at 98% of asking!
As our real estate agent you were nothing short of phenomenal. Your professionalism, honesty and good natured attitude made it so easy to work with you. We could not have done it so easily without you.

Also for helping us in finding a new property as well.
Thanks once again,

We are writing this letter on behalf of Matthew Shulman. Matthew knocked on our
door one summer evening and left us with a magnet for our refrigerator. My son
Lucas was with me at the door and he and Matthew instantly connected.
Several months later, my family and I were out looking at open houses and we came across a property that we liked. We called the listing agent but he did not get back to us in a timely fashion. Conveniently, we had kept Matthew’s magnet on our fridge and we called him. Even though it was many months later since Matthew had knocked on our door, when I gave him my name, he instantly said “oh, from Maple Sugar and you have a son named Lucas, right?” That impressed us very much.
Matthew helped us to purchase the home that we had seen at a price that we were very comfortable with. When he listed the home we were living in, he had it staged, he recommended a painter and he got us the highest price ever paid on our street for our model of town home in under one week. It goes without saying that we would recommend Matthew very highly to our friends and family.

Earlier this year, my ever-growing family and I felt it was time to start looking for
a new, larger home in the area. Once we established our price range, we enlisted the
services of yourself and your team to help us find our new place.
Having known Matthew for a few years, I had ample opportunity to hear about what makes him and his team stand out in the real estate world in terms of knowledge, service and commitment and we had to say that all of this held true. Although it only took us 5 or so homes to find the one we were looking for, Matthew and his team were always well organized and able to fit us in to their schedule at a seconds notice.
This dedication to myself and my family made the process incredibly smooth and way less stressful than I was anticipating. His ability to effectively negotiate a fair price and, above all, ensure we got our home and with the conditions we wanted (even though we were the Buyers) left us feeling satisfied and confident with the entire process. In the future, we will not hesitate to recommend ‘The Matthew Shulman Team’ to any of our friends and colleagues that are currently in the market to buy or sell their home.

We would like to thank you for referring us to Matthew Shulman. He is an
absolutely phenomenal real estate agent. We had interviewed over 5 other
Realtors before meeting Matt and we can honestly say the best was saved for last.
Matt was amazing at selling our condo for the aggressive price we wanted, setting
an area record. We were so impressed with him that we immediately made another
purchase, rather than waiting. My family has already recommended him to their
friends and co-workers.
Unlike others who just say they do, Matt is extremely hard working and really does go the extra mile.

Dear Matt, Melanie, Michelle, Melissa and the rest of the office team,
I spent a sleepless night mulling over the enormity of what happened last night. It was amazing to watch you in action and knowing you had my best interests at heart and would broker the best deal for me. You exceeded my greatest expectations and made a dream come true which was 15 years in the making.
Michelle's staging certainly made the place look unique and people would be attracted to the décor rather than the flaws. The virtual tour, the brochures, the listing were amazing and I encouraged all my friends and family to go online to witness the magic.
I am in awe how professional you all are.
Two words like thank you, will never be enough but I want you to know, that my gratitude runs deep from the heart and I will look back on this experience as part of life's learning curve. You took a very green person and taught me a thing or two. I am still green but a bit paler.
Now on to the next phase of my life with pleasure.

Hi, just a note to say thanks for all you have done for us throughout this process. As first time buyers, we had a lot of unanswered questions regarding the purchase of our home. Thank you for providing the answers to many of these and giving us informed advice on the homes that we visited!
