Don and team were true professionals in getting our house listed and sold very quickly. Their marketing was excellent. Someone was always reachable/responsive to our questions. We had competing offers on the first weekend our home was listed and were able to close seamlessly in a couple short weeks. Thanks Don & Team!
I can't say enough about how wonderful it was to have Don Matheson and his team. I was buying my first house and didn't know what to expect. I researched top real estate agents in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area and Don's name kept coming up. Now I know why. Don made my home-buying experience such an easy process. He kept in touch on a regular basis and did a great job negotiating. All of my paperwork was simple and straightforward. He even recommended a great mortgage firm that also made things go smoothly. But the best part was Don made sure everything about my house was to my liking before I even moved in. From start to finish, I did not feel stressed or overwhelmed at all. I could really tell he cared and that meant the world to me. Thank you Don and thank you to The Matheson Team for being there during such an important time in my life.
Don is the best realtor we have ever worked with. Very Professional and a great communicator. I recommend him and his team for any real estate needs, buying or selling. He is absolutely the best in the country! His high national RE/MAX ranking speaks for itself. I have bought and sold several homes with Don with the best outcome every time. Don is 5-star plus!!
