“Nice working with you as always.”
“Matthew knows his business very well and is extremely detailed in all he does. His extensive knowledge and skill are put to work to obtain the highest and best price whether buying or selling. While he is an astute businessman, he will not bend for honesty and integrity or take advantage of someone. He takes his work seriously and is not just in it for the money.”
“Matthew, it’s always been a pleasure to have to take care of our real estate transactions. You are the best! Thanks for your perfect customer service.”
“Matthew is easy to work with. He has a confident, friendly personality that puts you at ease. He definitely is the 'go to' guy when it comes to North Fork property!
“Wouldn’t consider using anyone else! Best agent I’ve ever had. Honest and ethical!”
“Thank you for helping us sell, at a very important time of our lives! You’re very good at what you do, so I/we were comfortable that you also seemed humble – meant a lot to us. Yes, keeping walking humbly with your/our God! Then you will successfully rise in your profession even more! Thank you, again! ”
“We've had several transactions with Matthew, and he has been professional and excellent. We wouldn't use anyone else.”
“Thank you so much for your help, knowledge, and support. Working with you turned a stressful situation into a less stressful process. Thank you again.”
“Thank you for guiding us through the process of selling our home. Your counsel and experience proved to be helpful in a successful venture.”
“Thank you for always looking out for my interests!”
“Matthew was a true partner in our recent purchase. He took time to understand our needs and our budget. His expert advice gave us great confidence in our bid, as well as the process from acceptance to closing. As we continue to accumulate investment properties, Matthew will be a significant part of our process. Subsequent to the above review, we purchased another rental property with Matthew's assistance. Again, his understanding of our requirements enabled him to efficiently conduct his search and the purchase. Matthew was with us every step of the way, we've purchased many properties before but Matthew is the only agent we've had who insists on attending closing. I can't recommend Matthew highly enough, I trust him completely.”
“Matthew was our agent through several home deals in NW Montana and was without a doubt the most knowledgeable, professional, and expert broker I have ever been associated with. His market knowledge and core real estate instincts proved to be always spot on every time. Having him on your side is very reassuring in that you know you have the best broker around to see through the challenging details that home and property sales can involve. I would highly recommend him - you will not regret it.”
“Matthew, I would recommend you with a clear conscience to my best friends.”
“I recently purchased a property offered by Matthew. After a few communications I decided to have him represent me as a “dual agent” where he represented both the seller and myself, the buyer. Two of my business acquaintances recommended against this but I had a gut feeling that I could trust Matthew. By using him as my buyers agent we were able to close the deal in short order at a satisfactorily negotiated price. Matthew followed through promptly and thoroughly with every request made. I highly recommend him.”
“We have bought/sold multiple properties and worked with many realtors (top ranked), but have never had such a great experience as that with Matthew! 100% , A+, ranked 11 out 10 on all aspects.”
“You’re one of the best real estate agents I’ve had the pleasure to deal with over 35 years of real estate transactions. A real professional agent.”
“My family has worked with Matthew on 4 transactions in the past year. I would highly recommend him to help you find your house or find your buyer.”
“Matthew met with us on super short notice after we spotted a home we liked. He was able to meet with us pretty much any time that fit into our busy schedules. He went above and beyond to make sure that all of the "i's" were dotted and "t's" were crossed. We highly recommend Matthew due to not only his expertise but also his integrity and desire to do the right thing each and every step of the way.”
“You were upfront, honest and responsive. Representing both the buyer and seller, you were respectful of privacy while working hard to find the best solution. Highly knowledgeable about the area and willing to troop through thick stands of lodgepole pine and up steep banks. Most importantly, you care. Thanks for working with us. If we have the need, we will work with you again!”
“Matthew is the REAL (realty) deal. He has personal integrity and professional excellence. He provided multiple current listings and recent past sales to help us evaluate local market values. He patiently guided the sales process with relevant insights and timely updates. His experience and character are invaluable.”
“I was very fortunate to have chosen Matthew Hohnberger as my real estate agent. He was always prompt on returning phone calls. When I needed repairs on the house he was very helpful with finding a qualified repairman. He exceeds all qualifications as a real estate agent. Thank you, Matthew, for working with me. You did a great job.”
“Thank you for all your hard work. It was a pleasure working with you!”
“Matthew helped me recently with an acquisition in the North Fork which was a lengthy, arduous negotiation right up to 5 minutes before closing, literally. Throughout the process he was timely, informative, willing to research everything I asked, willing to go the extra mile, and kept a sense of humor and smile. I have had considerable experience in buying and selling real estate in multiple jurisdictions. I would not consider anyone else for a real estate transaction in NW Montana.”
“Matthew was a true partner in our recent purchase. He took time to understand our needs and our budget. His expert advice gave us great confidence in our bid, as well as the process from acceptance to closing. As we continue to accumulate investment properties, Matthew will be a significant part of our process.”
“Matthew was there for us when negotiating the price. Making sure we did not over pay. This property had to be split, Matthew kept us informed during that process. He made sure we understood the transaction during the process. Excellent in real estate, and keeping us informed.”
“This was a long distance transaction and Matthew was extremely helpful in keeping us up to date with everything that was going on every step of the way. Real estate in Montana is very different from Missouri so that was extremely important.”
“Matthew is the consummate professional. He did a tremendous job. He communicated with us throughout the entire process. He left no stone unturned. He worked so hard and he really cared about every step of the process. He is very diligent. We are extremely pleased with everything. Matthew is fabulous!”
“Matthew, both Paula and I were extremely satisfied in working with you in our latest endeavor. Keep up the good work! Thanks again.”
“Thank you, Matthew, for working with me so I can be closer to my daughter and the grandkids.”
“Matthew was the best realtor I could have asked for. Referred to me by a neighbor out there, Matthew was always in control, kept me in the loop at all times and helped me fight through some technicalities to get my lot sold. After 9 years of trying, Matt got it done in one.
I would highly recommend Matthew to anyone. A ++”
“We have worked with Matthew over the last 2 years (2016 - 2018) as we have searched for our dream home (off the grid) in the Glacier National Park region of northern Montana in the North Fork Road area. Matthew's intimate knowledge of the area, the properties and the way of life in this area is second to none - he was raised there! We are proud to count Matthew not only as our Realtor, but as our friend. Matthew made the whole process of identifying, viewing possible properties (land & cabins), selecting our short list and then being guided through the buying process of our choice property was not only professional, painless, but fun, and overall a fantastic enjoyable experience. We cannot wait to build our dream cabin on this gorgeous property.”
“Matthew took the time to really understand what we wanted, applied deep understanding at local real estate and land issues to make sure we would be happy with our property. He was patient and thorough throughout a drawn-out transaction. We couldn’t be more satisfied. Thanks.”
“Matthew has lived in and around the Flathead Valley for more than 30 years and is qualified to assess values based on past and current knowledge. During our home buying experience Matthew was involved in the negotiation process behind the scenes as well as what we requested of him, always relying on factual information and logic and never speculating. Not only is Matthew a great real estate agent, but also a great man and will look out for the best interest of his clients whether buying or selling.”
“I worked with Matthew for about six months to find, negotiate and purchase my new property. I found Matthew to be very honest, intelligent and ethical in our business dealings. In addition, Matthew is extremely knowledgeable of the North Fork area. I highly recommend Matthew as a realtor in the prized North Fork area.”
“Matthew took the time to note all of our needs and concerns. As new local business owners we had privacy concerns in regards to lending, family issues and location needs, all on a budget of time and money! His experience made us feel safe, he was always informing us of things we needed to know and he took the time to help us look until we found our perfect family home we could settle into. The house even appraised higher then what we paid! Thanks Matthew!”
“We have worked with Matt in the past and chose to do so again because of his high level of integrity. He is very thorough, trustworthy, very responsive to phone calls, gave us excellent advice and tried to get us the best deal possible. I give Matt the highest recommendation.”
“Matthew is an expert regarding the North Fork area and is the only Realtor to call when buying/selling in the north Flathead Valley. He’s easy going and very easy to work with.”
“I’ve bought property through him, and have now sold property through him. Always professional, thorough, and quick to respond. His knowledge of the area and unique requirements of the area is impressive. I will use him again for any other transactions I have in the future. I bought property through him back in 2000, and have been in contact ever since.”
“Very helpful, my family and extended family has used him for everything in Montana. He found our original property, then my brother, friends X3, and then sold some property.”
“Loved working with you. Very professional! Very fast! Loved the experience!”
“Matthew has been great to work with over the past few years in helping us find our dream property! He's been patient, informative, knowledgeable, and simply provided great advice! I'm very thankful that he is our Realtor!”
“Matthew went above and beyond to help us through our home buying process, and events that unfolded after the sale as well. He is, by far, the best agent in the Flathead Valley!”
“Thanks again helping to clear up that "well matter". Greatly appreciated!”
“Thank you, Matthew, for being a true professional, which made the purchase of our dream home not only a smooth, but joyful transaction. We so appreciated your knowledge, prompt communication, and attention to detail. We would not recommend or work with anyone else! Thank you!”
“Matthew is the best! This is the third real estate transaction I’ve done with Matthew, and in all three has performed superbly. I would work with no one else, and I recommend him without any hesitations or qualifications.”
“I highly recommend Matthew Hohnberger as a realtor. He was professional, honest, knowledgeable and hard working. He was very responsive to my requests for information, for help with resources and even went beyond what I expected. I have no reservations in encouraging others to use his services.”
“Matthew handled the sale of our remote, off-the-grid property. It was not an easy place to sell. He went far beyond what we expected from a realtor both during the selling process and then making a sale happen. We highly recommend him.”
“Matthew’s professional attention to detail and to our specific requests was exemplary. He was our agent as seller and buyer; we were totally satisfied with his functioning in both roles, and would definitely consider him for future transactions. ”
“Difficult “off the grid” property to sell. Matthew hung in there and did a great job. We got creative with our advertisement and he was always a trusted, loyal advisor and very honest. He is a unique “breed” in a topsy-turvy world. Truly outstanding!!!”
“Selling your house is like allowing someone to date your daughter. There are very few you'd trust with the privilege and responsibility. We felt secure and comfortable putting the sale of our home in Matthew's hands, in part because of his expertise, but especially because of his integrity. He's our real estate person. No one else will do.”
“Matthew was very helpful in purchasing our first acre of land in the North Fork in November 2015. Fast forward 9 months and he contacted us about the adjacent 2 acres going on the market and he was up front with the situation and negotiated the deal quickly. He is the guy to seek when buying/selling the Polebridge and Columbia Falls area.”
“Matthew Hohnberger is the BEST real estate agent that I have ever worked with. His knowledge and expertise in the real estate market helped me to sell 3 homes and purchase 2. He works for his client’s best interest and will obtain the best possible home/property for the best price. He can be TRUSTED to get the job done. I HIGHLY recommend Matthew Hohnberger for all of your real estate needs.”
“Matthew Hohnberger is an exceptional real estate agent. He is very in tune with the local market. Matthew is honest, hardworking, and will do his best for you. Some real estate agents don't respond in a timely fashion, but that has never been our experience with Matthew. He has excellent communication skills. If you ask his opinion on something, he is going to give you his honest opinion, no beating around the bush. Mr. Hohnberger is one of the top real estate agents we have had the pleasure of working with. We recommend him highly.”
“Matthew was very knowledgeable and professional about the entire process of my real estate experience. From doing the research for comps, listing & marketing my property, keeping me advised of all activity, and giving very experienced suggestive responses to offers, while letting me make all final decisions. I would highly recommend using Matthew Hohnberger as a Real Estate agent, and I would not hesitate using him again!”
“Matthew was a true professional in helping us sell an investment property that had some complexities tied to it. He forged through with no hesitation and displayed patience as we managed through numerous offers. Amazing how he hit the ground running within the first few days of the listing to blast the market with our property resulting in huge momentum from the outset.”
“Matthew is very personable, helpful, and most of all he is very knowledgeable in his field. He communicates well and keeps you informed throughout the process of finding just the right property. He is a true professional and a genuinely nice guy to work with. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him. I felt he had my best interest in mind. That is a good feeling. He is the Best!!! I would highly recommend him.”
“We ran away from real estate agents before as we didn't see what they added to the home buying-selling process. In our previous home sales and buys we were happy without a real estate agent. This time around the house we wanted was under contract with Matthew and he managed to totally change our perception of what a good real estate agent adds to the whole stressful buying/selling process. He is now a good friend with which we hang out a lot and he continues to impress us with his knowledge and smarts.”
“I’ve worked with a number of real estate agents during my lifetime. Without a doubt Matthew is head and shoulders above my experiences with other agents. He is a hard working agent and a dedicated professional. His knowledge of the North Fork Valley is exceptional.”
“Matthew was everything we hoped for in a realtor. Knowledgeable, punctual, and great communication skills. He comes highly recommended from my husband and myself. He answered all email and phone correspondence promptly and gave great advice on the best time to put the house on the market. He set the price perfectly.”
“Matthew, I can’t thank you and your fine staff enough! My wife and I are happier than we’ve ever been about our living arrangements. Thanks for holding my hand thru the process. ”
“Matthew helped me to purchase my first home six years ago and has represented my family and I in another six real estate transactions since then. Most recently, my Husband and I sold our home and purchased our new home all in the summer of 2014. We are always very pleased with Matthew's attention to detail, prompt service and professionalism. Matthew took care of all the behind the scenes details that we did not have time for and helped us to understand each stage of the process so we felt informed. We would highly recommend Matthew to anyone selling or purchasing a new home.”
“Matthew was the most professional and detail oriented realtor we have ever worked with. We were glad to have him represent us on our purchase of our home, which had extensive negotiating issues. He handled it all with expertise and efficiency. We felt well represented.”
“Over ten years ago Matthew sold property north of Polebridge. So when it came to selling the family home in Columbia Falls, I called Matthew. The home had a few additions which weren't at building inspection code. We had to find a buyer that would take the asset "as is". Matthew is an excellent communicator. Not only did I appreciate his hard work, but he wouldn't waste my time with irrelevant information. I'm a CPA in Alaska, and accordingly, I will only deal with someone with high ethical standards. I fully trusted Matthew from about 2000 miles away. Great effort, Matthew and thank you!”
“Working with Matthew was a great experience. He is extremely knowledgeable about the local real estate market, including the properties for sale and the realtors that list them. His website is very helpful in searching for properties and he provides clients with a great email alert for the types of homes/properties that they are looking for. He leaves no detail unattended and is a master negotiator who crafts the type of deal that his clients are looking for. He helped us locate and buy the perfect home for our family in 2014. He has our unequivocal recommendation.”
“Not only did Matthew do the marketing to sell our remote property within a week, but he also negotiated for us to reach a prompt agreement with the buyers to let us rent beyond the closing date in order to move our goods into storage. As we needed a new home, Matthew worked well with another realtor who was posting the property we desired, advising us on how to proceed, what we could expect, provisions to request for closing, and acting as our advocate when we needed his experience and confidence. Matthew knows other realtors, title company representatives, professionals who helped us accomplish what we needed to be in our new home. That circle of trust and knowledge make him truly a valuable agent in finding our new home.”
“We cannot say enough good things about Matthew Hohnberger! He began trying to sell our log home in Kalispell after another agency had it for six months. Within a week, the family who bought it had some of their family fly in to see it and that was IT! We had moved already but were able to talk with Matthew frequently. All our business was mostly done on the phone and internet! Honestly, Matthew really knows his business! We are so very thrilled we asked for his help! He even had another buyer ready to make an offer had we not closed when we did! All the paperwork was "signed & sealed" within about six weeks! We also recommended Matthew to our dear friends/neighbors in that area...he sold their home in short order as well; he may have helped them locate the new place they just closed on in Whitefish!”
“Matthew recently sold a piece of undeveloped property. There were some complications with the sale and the potential buyers had quite a few questions for which they needed answers. We worked together to be sure the buyers perfectly understood the zoning restrictions on the property. Matthew was truthful and helped the buyers to clearly understand what restrictions existed. I was impressed with his honesty. He works very hard to help both the buyer and seller have all the facts. Matthew will not bend the truth nor embellish facts. He is a unique and exceptional realtor.”
“Matthew stays on top of details and responds with knowledgeable resources. I have used Matthew for the purchase of three commercial properties and the sale of one commercial property.”
“We find Matthew highly professional, very thorough, extremely knowledgeable about the market, a good negotiator and very capable to work through any and all complications that present themselves. You can’t find a better realtor anywhere.”
We are deeply appreciative of all that you did for us. You have a true gift for sales. So glad we were referred to you!! Not only were you our agent, but a friend to boot.”
“Thanks for everything! You rock! PS: We still have you on speed dial.
“Throughout the challenges of long distance contact (for example: time change, computers “not talking to each other”) all obstacles were overcome and dealt with in a timely fashion. Would recommend you to everyone! Beautiful family!!
“I practiced law in the area of real estate in New York for several years. During that time, I worked with many real estate agents. Matthew is by far the most well-informed, competent agent I have ever met. He was as much my attorney, engineer, tour guide, mortgage broker, nature consultant as my real estate agent. He is outstanding in his field. Someone should make a movie about my experience. If a book was written about “awesome”, Matthew would be the main character.”
“After a dear friend of ours recommended Matthew to us, we hired him in early 2008 to sell our home and help us look for a new one. From the start Matthew showed a level of thoroughness and professionalism that we have never experienced in the real estate industry. We were immediately confident that Matthew was working in our best interest, not just his own. He gave us clear, honest guidance that enabled us to sell our home quickly even in a “down” market. His services and expertise were invaluable in finding our new home, which we are absolutely thrilled with. We eagerly recommend Matthew to anyone seeking out a quality real estate agent.
“Delores and I can't express enough our thanks for your efforts in selling our land. Your professionalism and tenacity were impressive to say the least! Without your above and beyond efforts I don't think this deal would have happened. Doing this deal from California was not a problem because of your efforts keeping us informed. Your footwork and contacts in finding us qualified services needed, such as a surveyor and attorney, were invaluable. You are a true professional! Thank you again Matthew.”
“This sale was complicated with a number of issues including an easement that needed to be secured prior to closing. I am convinced that without Matthew's approach, local contacts and steady drive “to get the deal done”, this transaction never would have occurred.”
“Matthew was right on top of things. Superior knowledge of the market, good salesman, handling the closing process well. Matthew is truly professional in his approach to real estate sales. I don’t know of a better Realtor, or one with such a great attitude! Congratulations Matthew, you are truly “above the crowd”! (Matthew Hohnberger for president!)
“I've used agents in several previous transactions, but I can honestly say that Matthew was the most honest, hard-working (for our interests) and competent agent I've ever worked with. We have recommended him to others and plan to seek him out for ourselves again in any Kalispell area future transaction.
“I have purchased many properties and Matthew rates as high up as any Realtor I have dealt with. Thoughtful and professional. He really knows the market.
“Matthew is outstanding. We very much valued his opinions and thought he did a great job.”
“He (Matthew) was the most professional Real Estate Agent I've ever dealt with! Highly recommendable to anyone.
“Matthew's attention to detail and integrity were impeccable.”
“Matthew Hohnberger was very knowledgeable, professional and displayed a high level of integrity and consideration throughout the prolonged and difficult real estate transaction.
“Matt was great! Not only did we get a great agent, we also made a great friend. He is solid gold!
“I am an Attorney, have handled numerous real estate transactions and have exacting standards. Matthew exceeded all expectations. It is fair to say that this acquisition would not have occurred without Matthew's professionalism, dedication and creativity.
“Matthew is very knowledgeable and trustworthy. I plan on using him whenever I have a real estate transaction in your area.
“I have worked with Matthew Hohnberger for some years and during that period I could not have asked for a better, more energetic, more forthright and helpful representative in the land sales than he managed on my behalf.
“Have done many real estate transactions in my life...best agent I've dealt with. Great experience all because of Matthew.
“Right from the start we knew you were the person we wanted to represent us all. Not just because of your obvious knowledge and love for the area, but just as important, because of your integrity and innate kindness.
“Nita and I want to thank you for doing such a fine job in selling our property in the North Fork. We felt you were on the job as soon as we talked to you about selling. You kept in touch and updated us on potential prospects on a regular basis. In short, you did what you said you would do, and you did it when you said you would do it. That says it all.
“Thank you for all you did in helping us get this property. We love it here. We have seen seven moose and two grizzlies in the meadow.
“Having had the pleasure of Matthew Hohnberger representing with regard to the purchase of Real Estate in Flathead County, I can attest to his high degree of integrity and professionalism as a Real Estate salesman. I have dealt with hundreds of Real Estate Professionals on a nationwide basis. Matthew is an exemplary individual. I place the highest degree of trust and honesty upon him. He places his professional conduct and moral integrity first and foremost to any potential remuneration.
