Thad Roepke – Crestar Homes

Over the last few months, Carson and I had the opportunity to work together on one of my spec homes.  He represented the buyer that put our house under contract right before drywall.  Needless to say there was a lot of interaction between the buyers / him and me.  It was always a pleasure speaking to Carson each and every time.  He was exceptionally patient, professional and friendly with the whole process.  He really seemed to care about the buyer’s happiness and the project’s overall success.

I think Carson is a top notch agent and more importantly, an honest and hardworking person.   I hope we do more business together and I wish him much success.

2, 1, 0, 3…our challenge to Carson was pretty daunting and he exceeded our expectations in every way. We had less than 2 months, to find 1 great home, in a neighborhood we fell in love with that had almost 0 inventory, to help make 3 young kids happier about the idea of their move from D.C.

Among so many other things, the detail of Carson’s market knowledge was unreal. Not only was he able to  quickly identify the exact type of home and community we were looking for…he took the extra time and care to fill us in on all the important nuances about the neighborhood (schools, sidewalks, flood zones, traffic patterns, a great place for yogurt – you name it) that we would have never known since we were from out of town.
When it came to our actual purchase – we ended up putting our offer in sight unseen  – trusting Carson’s feel from a walk-through he did along with photos and videos he sent up to us. Carson’s guidance throughout the whole process got us a dream home in an amazing neighborhood…we couldn’t be more happy.
Being able to build such a strong of understanding of his clients needs and quickly earning such solid trust speaks to what makes working with Carson so special. We would proudly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Atlanta area.”

“A friend recommended Carson back in 2007, and he helped us find our awesome condo in Midtown. We’ve loved living there and really didn’t want to move, but once we were expecting, we knew our loft lifestyle-days were numbered. So we called Carson with our news. Over the next eight months – as we changed the game on desired school districts, floor plans, price ranges and every other parameter most couples have nailed down before calling their agent – we found every excuse to just stay in the condo. Honestly, we were so afraid of pulling the trigger just to be in a house before the baby arrived that we proceeded with extreme caution. Carson never wavered. He patiently and persistently continued to provide us with options to meet our constantly-changing “must-haves.” The few times we did consider settling, he counseled us to back away from houses when his comps just couldn’t support the sellers’ final offers. Perhaps most importantly, Carson is the guy you want leading your house hunt. He’s smart, savvy, an incredible marketer, a joy to be around and a calming force when the going gets tough. I’m thrilled to say that when our son was two months old, we found the house of our dreams in a fantastic in-town neighborhood. Carson did it again.”

“Carson Matthews is a consummate real estate professional whom we are pleased to recommend. We were faced with selling a challenging property in even more challenging market conditions this year, when an industry insider highly recommended Carson to us as a realtor.  Carson brought confidence, knowledge, integrity, enthusiasm and skill to the situation and our property was sold within six months for a very satisfactory price – not the industry norm in 2011/2012!  From our first meeting when he gave us excellent advice on preparing the property for sale, to the actual listing, his use of creative and current marketing, attaining a fair appraisal, screening offers, communicating updates, and negotiating the sale, he was our best asset.  Carson took care of things over and beyond the normal call of duty in many ways, saving us time, effort and money.  He is a most likeable professional, yet tenacious when the situation calls for effective negotiation – a rare combination!  Carson’s strengths are perfectly suited to his profession, and we are honored to highly recommend him for any real estate needs.”

“Within 48 hours after being listed our desired house had three pending offers. Thanks to skillful navigation and persistence Carson was able to secure what is now our home. Carson was recommended to us by a friend; we would certainly recommend Carson to any of our friends moving to Atlanta. He is a pleasure to work with.”

“Carson helped us purchase our first home in 2003. He did a phenomenal job then and kept us apprised of market conditions (upon request) for the next decade. Naturally, when we decided to move this year, we trusted him to sell our home in Ardmore Park and assist us with the purchase of a new home. Carson pulled out all of the stops in marketing our house – from digital media (Facebook, YouTube, blogs, and other various social media outlets) to popular print publications. In addition to his marketing prowess, we appreciated his analytical approach on both the sale of our home and purchase of our new home. He is well-versed in market conditions and comparable sales, which allowed us to maximize our sale proceeds. We sold at 95% of our asking price within 13 days of listing on the market. Carson was equally valuable in the purchase of our new home, which we were able to secure at an attractive price. To top it all off, he orchestrated a back-to-back closing, eliminating additional storage and hotel bills. We trust Carson implicitly and value his friendship and level-headed approach to real estate.”

“We had a problem, second home in Atlanta that we’d tried selling through two other agents over a period of 8+ years, renting out intermittently in between each time out to market. Carson came along and suggested tweaks that no one had previously thought of, from basic fixes to important, exterior modifications. We sold the house in under 5 months in 2011, at long last. As homeowners located in SF, there is no way we could have achieved this without Carson’s help, guidance and active involvement from start to finish. He was extremely responsive, professional and a pleasure to work with under difficult circumstances. We would whole-heartedly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Atlanta area.”

Gavin and Bridget D. Atlanta, Georgia

“Purchasing a house is one of the most frustrating and stressful things a married couple can do, especially when 9 months pregnant. However, Carson made the process easy and enjoyable and found us the perfect house within three weeks. He made sure that the lending process went smoothly, worked around our complicated schedules and was available for advice and assistance at all hours, every step of the way. When the time comes to move again, we will look no further then Carson Matthews to both sell and purchase our next home.”

Krissy and Addison M. Atlanta, Georgia

“My husband and I were so fortunate to have Carson Matthews represent us with the buying and selling of our houses. He helped us with everything- from staging our house to sell (which sold in 3 weeks!!) to guiding us through challenging negotiations on our current house. If we ever move again, we will be using Carson. He is truly the best! I would highly recommend Carson to anyone who is in need of a real estate professional.”

Lori and Thornton K. Atlanta, Georgia

“We chose to go with Carson to help us sell our Peachtree Park home because of his marketing skills, his relationships and his integrity. Few in this business better understand the ins and outs of selling homes as well as Carson. He has excellent relationships in the residential real estate community, which is one of the corner stones in buying and selling homes. Carson struck us as having a compliment of the fundamental skills – market knowledge, relationships – and he was not afraid to try new approaches, specifically utilizing blogs, social websites and Twitter to market our home. Our home sold in under six months in 2009.”

Courtney and Brian C. Atlanta, Georgia (relocated from North Carolina)

“As first time home buyers my wife and I felt very overwhelmed and nervous about such an important step in our lives, purchasing our first home. Carson came highly recommended from good friends of ours who Carson assisted in the purchase of their home as well. When we first met Carson his friendly and down to earth demeanor was exactly what my wife and I were hoping for in a realtor and not someone who was in this business for one thing, to make a quick sale! Carson was very patient and worked around the clock to make sure we had all the information we wanted with regards to the housing market or a house that fit within our budget. Thank you Carson for making this an incredibly easy experience!”

Elizabeth and Donovan V. Atlanta, Georgia

“In the midst of a down-market flooded with excess condominiums Carson was able to sell our unit in just four months. I credit the sale to his persistence, positive attitude, and industry knowledge gained from years of work in the local market. I know we’ll work with Carson again and would recommend that others do the same.”
