Matt was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and wonderful to work with on both the purchase of our new home and the sale of our old one. When it came to buying our new home, Matt was quick to follow up on all our questions, provided insight throughout the process, and helped ensure we had a smooth closing. When it came to selling our old home, there were a few hiccups along the way with the buyers but Matt went above and beyond to make sure the sale went through and kept reassuring us along the way that everything would work out. If you are looking for a great, hardworking, knowledgeable agent, then you should go with Matt. We highly recommend Matt will definitely use him and Suburban Life Reality again in the future.

Matt sold my husband and I our first house! We were obviously new to the home buying process, but Matt was extremely patient and knowledgable. We were able to see homes very quickly and sometimes on very short notice. I also got the pleasure to work with Kate Roth. She is fantastic!! Knowledgable, great with appointments, and very responsive. I would highly recommend Suburban Life Realty!

Matt was always very informative in answering the million questions I had when looking for a home. He was flexible in his schedule to show homes for the times I had to work from and there were lots of homes to choose from on his website. I found a new development with open houses and was able to secure a brand new in the works home in Hampshire, IL. I would highly recommend Matt for your real estate needs.

Helped me buy and sell homes
As my realtor, Matt Lysien did a great job in helping sell my home. He was a true professional and his suggestions on preparing and pricing my house were very instrumental in getting my house sold in just a few weeks. His knowledge of the local market was quite extensive and he seemed to have a keen awareness of the overall market climate at the time. This helped to greatly ease my fears about getting my house sold in a short time frame. He was always very responsive and available any time day or night whenever I needed to talk to him. He comes across as very a genuine person and makes you feel that he would do whatever he possibly could do to find a home for you or sell your home as was my case. Overall, it was a pleasure working with Matt Lysien in selling my house and I would highly recommend him to anyone else who is looking for a dedicated top notch realtor. Less ... More

Matt Lysien help my wife and myself for almost a year in our search for our first home. He was very helpful in not only providing listings and facilitating showing he was a great source of knowledge on both the process and experience. He was able to provide us with experienced contacts on both the loan front and a lawyer for the purchase. I highly recommend Matt as your Realtor.

I found Matt online. He was so available to us on evenings on weekends. Although we had our own financing he had resources in case we didn't have our own. I liked the home inspection company he suggested. he helped us negotiate a good price on our first home.

It was wonderful working with Matt. I spoke to a realtor prior to him and the experience was nothing compare to our experience with Matt. As a young (23 years old) first time home buyer I was very clueless and didn't know very much about anything. He guided me through the entire process. He accommodated the house hunting to my tight schedule, even if it meant Sundays. I appreciate his patience since I was very indecisive and changed my mind about what I initially wanted. I finally found the home, and it was mine in no time. Of course there was things out of his control that is common to run into but overall, it was great. I will definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a home. Less ... More

I chose Matt based on the many positive reviews that I found on line and I am very glad I did so. Matt listened carefully and understood what I was looking for in a home and directed me to very appropriate candidates, one of which I purchased. Matt had to go to bat for me repeatedly in the process while I worked to sell my house in the Washington, D.C. area and he did so masterfully. Time and time again he found a way to make things work so that I was able to purchase and close on time on the what was very close to the home of my dreams. Matt Lysien made it possible for me to "come home again" and I can and will recommend him to anyone seeking to find a home in the Elgin area. Less ... More

Matt is an extraordinary realtor. My wife and I had been looking for the right house for almost 7 months. Matt helped us to not get discourage and kept updating us with new listings. We finally ended up buying a foreclosure HUD property and all I heard from others is how much work and pain it is to deal with them. Matt made the process positive and fast. He referred us to great financing and representation firms who also made the purchase positive. I would recommend anyone to Matt who is looking for a professional, affable realtor. Less ... More

Matt was wonderful to work with! I was trying to find a townhouse quickly, he made sure to know my expectations and automated a process for me so I was getting alerts as soon as something was available within my criteria. Then when I wanted to see a place, he made arrangements to ensure I could see it as soon as possible. He is very personable and knowledgeable about the process.

I was buying my first house and there were lots of things I didn't know. Matt showed me lots of houses until I found the right one for me! I am so happy I picked him (online) because I saw all the good reviews. Even after the purchase of my home, he has helped me with other stuff.

I've worked with Matt on a couple of deals and have been more than pleased with his diligence and expertise. He always seem to go above and beyond what is necessary to get the job done. I've been most impressed with Matt's patience as we work thru what sometimes turns out be "challenging" deals. I would highly recommend Matt for all your real estate needs.

Matt did a fantastic job dealing with a difficult Realtor and seller for us. He got us the price we wanted and helped the day of the closing when some unexpected issues arose. We now have him managing a rental for us and found us a tenant in less than a week. Great guy and easy to work with.

Ron and I are very pleased with Matt's professional and honest approach with the house. We had our house on the market 18 months prior to Matt taking over and he got things going quickly and within 5-6 weeks had an offer that we ended up taking. He knew just where we stood and worked very hard for us. We both would and will recommend Matt to anyone who asks. He is a hard worker and we appreciate his great effort.

First thing that grabbed our attention with Matt was his ability to work with us on our schedule and not his own. We were first time home buyers so we made him go thru so many walk thru's and he was extremely patient and helpful with them all. Was extremely pleased with his knowledge of the house and how prepared he came to every visit. Only negative i can even come up with were just a few things we noticed we were not ready for after the sale, but that was mostly our fault for not knowing how to ask the right questions before it was all said and done. I would recommend Matt to any friend that was looking for a house!!! Less ... More

I had a fantastic opportunity to work with Matt for my home search. Matt took the time to accomodate my schedule, which included nights and weekends, to show me many homes. I worked with Matt for a long time as I could not make a final choice. Matt was positive and kept up with me the entire way. When I finally found the home of my choice Matt continued to help me through the process from beginning to end. He attended the closing to assist me with any questions that I had. Before, during and after my purchase I was always calling Matt with with questions about the area as I was coming from a distance. He helped me locate store, restaurants, and ideas of fun places to go with my kids. I still have communication with Matt with questions about the area which he always responds. I would choose Matt to represent me anytime! I would recommend any potential home buyer choose Matt to represent them. On a note, I used this Zillow website review as my guide to choose a realtor. I chose Matt through the reviews here. The reviews were accurate!! Less ... More

From September 2011 through December 2011 Matt served as our agent during the search for our first home in Chicago. Matt is intelligent, thoughtful and passionate when it comes to his clients and his work. He was great to point out the comparables in the area, things he noticed in the house that we accidentally overlooked. He was super helpful to us since we were first time home buyers. When we found our dream home, we were highly impressed by his negotiating skills and are thankful he worked to secure the best price possible for us. Matt responds quickly to questions and takes time to help each client understand the market they are working in. We highly recommend him to anyone looking for an honest, hardworking and knowledgeable agent. Less ... More

Matt represented my interest as a buyer . It was quite complex short sale and very long process . I need to give to Matt kudos for responsivenes , he was always there when needed or aksed for . Thats a big plus . Also he has great communication skills . I gave him 4 stars for negotiation skills because i believe it could be done more , however i do not blame him , it was development not to many could expect , which is sabotage sale . Overall he is great guy i think he will buy for you home in no time , easy going , friendly , professional , always proper and on time , with good understanding of the process of buying home . Certainly Matt will help you a lot to find best deal location and will address your concerns and needs . 5 STARS . Less ... More

We just finished a long-distance buying experience with Matt and he made the process very smooth and easy. His knowledge of the area and neighborhoods helped us to pick out the perfect home (despite me not wanting to view the house we actually bought) As a result we got a great deal on an amazing house. Matt e-savvy made the entire long distance process quick and smooth! I would recommend Matt to anyone and everyone buying in the area.

Matt was extremely helpful in finding my townhouse. He was flexible in scheduling showings and willing to show a wide variety of locations and property types. This was my first real estate purchase and Matt was very patient while I attempted to make up my mind. I will likely use him again in the future and highly recommend his services.

Matt was readily accessible, and was wiling to work with us on our changing preferences--both in location and style of house. He was able to accommodate our schedule (we were looking from out of town) and was able to follow our lead when we wanted to put an offer in on a house after seeing it for the first time. While the loan process was not as smooth as it could have been, he was reassuring and was diligent in working with us--and the bank officers--to make sure that everything happened in a timely fashion. We will definitely use him again in our future transactions! Less ... More
