"My wife and I have nothing but great things to say about working with Matt Leicht. In the beginning we were going out on our own visiting open houses and that is where we met Matt. We weren’t thinking about getting a realtor until we got a follow up video from Matt thanking us for visiting the open house. We thought that was someone that went above and beyond a normal realtor. We decided to ask him to be our realtor and we are glad we did. Matt helped us look at many houses and we found nothing. We decided to postpone the search and Matt never made us feel like we were pressured into anything. Every house we visited Matt did his research and was able to answer the questions we had about each house. Matt also has a very user friendly website that sends up-to-date notices when a house we are interested in comes on the market. I am a business owner and nothing makes me happier than to work with someone like Matt that truly cares about his job and his business. He will be our realtor for life. Knowledgeable, Friendly, Patient, Professional, Trustworthy are the words we think of when we think of Matt Leicht." -Phil

"Utilizing a VA loan, purchasing while out of state, and a first time home buyer I’m not sure my situation could have been more difficult. Matt was amazing and made this a seamless transaction. Not only did he negotiate an outstanding agreement, but he was able to assist and provide recommendations for all necessary steps, critical in my case. I can’t say enough about how he handled my transaction. Immediately following close we traveled to my new home and walked through together. At year end Matt, unprompted, sent over copies of that are necessary for my tax deductions. I strongly recommend Matt’s services." -Carlton

"This was our second time we used Matt to sell a house. He helped us previously sell and buy our current home and this time he helped us sell my parents home. He is always such a pleasure to work with. He provides great input up front on how to position and sell your house successfully. If you follow his advice, you won’t go wrong. Sold our house both times in a week! He’s also a very knowledgeable and caring professional and now a lifelong friend. Will use him again should the need arise." -Mike and June

"Matt is very knowledgeable of the area and dependable! He was right there at the forefront to ensure that we were satisfied with the comps in the area, house inspections, and was there at closing. It was a pleasure to work with Matt and the services he provided me as I bought my new home! His professionalism is top notch! I would work with him in the future!" -Henley and Tammie

"After assisting my family in locating a new residence in Sarasota I could not be more impressed with Matt. He is professional, reliable, and knowledgeable in the industry. I highly recommend Matt's services to friends and family." -Derrick

"Initially, my wife and I decided we would sell our house "by owner". After 30 days on the market, we changed our mind and decided to use a realtor. We interviewed 25 plus realtors and decided to go with a realtor who had the listing for 10 months. After 10 months of frustration, we decided to switch to Matt.  This was the best decision I made all year! Matt was quick to show me that his approach and market wisdom was far beyond my perception by selling our home within a week of getting the listing.  Matt offered a highly proactive approach extending far beyond traditional real estate marketing, leaving no stone unturned. During the entire process, Matt demonstrated in-depth market knowledge, was highly responsive to our inquiries, and led us through a successful closing. Matt is very pleasant to work with and keeps you informed of market conditions and any potential impact on his listings. Matt is the real deal! Our only regret was not giving Matt our listing 10 months sooner." -Chuck and Diane

"Matt is one of the best agents in the Sarasota area. He is professional and he is a market expert. He is up to-date on everything that is going on in the real estate market and knows the area like the back of his hand. I highly recommend him for any of your real estate needs." -Ashley

"Matt’s expertise, knowledge and aggressive marketing resulted in multiple full price offers on our home within 48 hours of listing! Matt is a true professional and we highly recommend him." -Rebecca and Thom

"We are a newly married couple who were searching for our first home and Matt was an excellent realtor to work with! He started off our home buying process by meeting with us and discussing all of our dreams for our future house. He took us to see quite a few houses and we finally found our dream home! He negotiated on our behalf and helped us to get the perfect deal. Matt was extremely helpful throughout the entire closing process. Matt assisted us every step of the way, including attending our inspections for us. We would recommend him with no hesitation!" -Alex and Ashely


"We contacted Matt when my husband and I decided we wanted to purchase a second home in Sarasota. Matt asked us all the right questions and emailed us a huge selection of condos to virtually tour. We whittled the list down and surprised Matt by traveling to Florida the following weekend asking if he could set up some tours. Matt got right on it and got us tours in 10 places. Matt recommended we write down the pros and cons as we toured each place and rate each place on a scale of 1-10. What a super idea since the places were starting to blend in our heads. We referred to our notes often. Once we completed our tours, two places were the clear standouts. Matt provided bidding suggestions and we placed a bid on our favorite place the next day. Matt made this process painless for us. The contracts were all done online. I should note that as Matt drove us from place to place he provided us with information about Sarasota. History, places to go, restaurants, etc. He’s a wealth of knowledge. Matt walked us through the buying process providing details of what each step entailed. He was in constant contact with us throughout the process. Matt provided us with what we call our Bible. It’s a detailed list of people we could call- attorneys, home watch, insurance, cable, home inspectors, etc. This document has been a real timesaver for us. Because we couldn’t be onsite for the closing, Matt graciously offered to do the walk-thru for us and provided several videos of place - both inside and outside. Our second home became ours in May. Matt made it all happen with ease. We highly recommend you ask for Matt when you’re purchasing your next home." -Teresa


"Matt is a high achiever who is professionally knowledgeable, service minded, skilled interpersonally, and is a hard and efficient worker. Matt had the answers to our questions or was able to source them rapidly. He is tech savvy increasing the efficiency of the buying experience. Matt is also responsive. I never had to wait long for a response or an answer." -Tim and Karen


"We were extremely satisfied with the job Matt Leicht performed in helping us sell our home. Our property was tastefully marketed on the internet with quality photographs and a detailed description. Both of us were impressed with the fact that Matt is an honest person of integrity and character. He made a well thought out appraisal of our property and put it into perspective with comparisons of other similar type homes in our general area. He helped us to generate a fair offering price when we initially placed it on the market, and helped us overcome some challenges we encountered along the way. He was attentive and easily reachable with all the questions we asked him, and readily agreed to frequent Sunday Open Houses as well as adjusting the initial offering price as needed. We felt Matt's work ethic was outstanding. Although we have sold several homes in the past, it is never an easy process! Matt helped to allay our concerns and deal with any issues at hand in a forthright manner. We would recommend him without reservation to anyone looking to have a fair, honest, and sincere realtor help them sell their property." -Steve and Marsha


"We met Matt at an open house (the first house we looked at) and immediately were impressed with him and decided to use him as our Agent. He was extremely helpful and provided us with many houses to review prior to requesting actual viewing. When we decided to look more in Venice he was always willing to travel further and show houses whenever we requested. Matt went above and beyond after we put a contract on a house. This is the first time either of us bought a house in Florida and Matt guided us the whole way on matters that I believe were beyond the scope of his 'job'. We will highly recommend him as an agent and will stay in touch with him. An absolutely wonderful experience and so happy with the house we bought and Matt's professionalism." -Sara

"I met Matt at an open house and he was very accommodating in my search for a vacation home.  He showed me alternatives that would best fit my needs.  Matt was very responsive at all times.  When a property of interest became available, he would provide video for me to view as I am not located in Florida.  He was always helpful with whatever my needs were.  Matt is very personable and professional and I would use him again." -Mary


"Living in Michigan and trying to purchase a second home in Florida was a difficult task. Matt was extremely helpful in this effort and cleared his schedule to show properties when I could get into town. After identifying the property I wanted, Matt helped negotiate the purchase price down to my target amount with a difficult Seller. He provided timely information and guided me through the mortgage process and obtaining homeowners insurance. He was there every step of the way even with his own difficulties during hurricane Irma. If you are looking to purchase a home in the Sarasota area, I highly recommend you contact Matt." -David


"Working with Matt took away all the stress. He was always there with a quick response to any questions, available when we needed him, and supportive throughout the process from inspections to closing. Matt was always, always, always pleasant yet professional. Thank you Matt for making our dream home come true!" -Jackie


"Matt was wonderful to work with! He spent so much time with us making sure we found our perfect home! He was patient and very informative on the things we knew nothing about! Matt is the best!" -Brandon and Cassidy


"Since I live in another state and wasn't there for any of the process, he was invaluable. Matt looked at the property I was buying and sent me videos. Then he referred me to an attorney, home inspector and repair  people. Matt went out of his way to meet the inspector and appraiser for me and even met a family member of mine and showed them the property. Not only is Matt a truly remarkable realtor, he is a great guy who cares about his clients. I have recommended him to people I know and will use him to help in the relocation of my family to Sarasota. Matt is a true professional and if he is the realtor you choose, you will not be disappointed. You will be impressed!" -Bill


"Matt worked with us for several months as we were in the process of selling our home and moving from out of town. He was super available and flexible with seeing multiple homes and helped us secure our dream home in the end! He’s great to work with!" -Joel and Grace


"Working with Matt Leicht was an amazing experience! He made everything so easy for us - going above and beyond again and again. We met Matt via phone upon arriving in the Sarasota/Bradenton area over Memorial Day Weekend 2019. We had 72 hours to find a home before flying back to Washington DC,  and Matt was more than up to the challenge. He showed us homes in various neighborhoods, giving us a good feel for the region. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area and guided us every step of the way in making the offer, preparing necessary paperwork after the offer was accepted and keeping in touch long distance to ensure the home inspection and everything would be in place so we could close on our home a month later. Matt is a true professional - extremely reliable, resourceful, and patient with keen interpersonal communication skills. You as his client are the top priority. He will do whatever it takes to ensure you are happy and that your best interests are met. You will be fortunate to have Matt on your side." -Lex and Mary Sue


"Matt helped my boyfriend and I purchase our first home. He’s very knowledgeable and always made sure we knew exactly what steps were next. He promptly answered all questions we had. He is all around very professional and we recommend Matt to anyone searching for a realtor!" -Evelyn


"We had a great selling experience with Matt. He helped navigate various hurdles that came about (no fault of his). Made the process great and as smooth as possible." -Josef and Jullianne


"We absolutely loved working with Matt to find our home! As first time home buyers we were comforted by his guidance throughout the process and his extensive knowledge of the market. He was quick to respond any time that we had a question or a concern and we were able to use his website to find new homes that we wanted to visit as soon as they came on the market. Matt was also able to negotiate a roof credit for us that ended up covering a large chunk of our closing costs. I am so thankful that we chose Matt to help us purchase our home and would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Sarasota area!" -Jared and Liz

"Matt was able to negotiate a fair price for my purchase and helped with an issue on the inspection for me. He was very knowledgeable about the Sarasota/ Manatee county area." -Natalie

"Matt helped my wife and I find the perfect 1st home. I was very impressed with the price that we paid, with Matt's excellence in the negotiation and closing stages being the primary reason for that. 10/10, would recommend." -Ty and Sarah
