Matthew Thomas and Thomas Group realty made our home buying process truly special. Matthew's accessibility, attentiveness and timeliness were always on point. He made us feel like we were his only client, and made an effort to answer all of our many questions thoroughly. We will use Matthew again in a heartbeat, and will suggest him to our friends. The best part: we gained a friend through the entire process! Thanks, Matthew, Tiffany and all of Thomas Group!

Of the three realtors I have worked with, Matt far exceeds the standard set by the other two. He was always available via text or email, typically responding within the hour if not immediately. He helped us buy a property that was not yet on the market for $11,000 under list price. My wife and I will undoubtedly be using him again in the future!

Matt Thomas represented me in the recent sale of my house in Longleaf. He sold my house BEFORE IT WAS EVEN LISTED at a great value for the neighborhood! Selling my house so quickly was a shock, and he supported my efforts to relocate, helping me find an appropriate rental in a timely fashion. He also represented me through a very difficult and convoluted journey to buy a piece of property that had many unpleasant pitfalls. He was very assertive, stayed on the problem, and ultimately took me to closing with a smile on my face. This young man calmed my hysterics when things went sideways in a very supportive and professional manner, always cheerful, professional, and helpful. In my opinion, he went above and beyond what anyone should have been expected to do. Of note, he also sold my neighbor's home across the street in two weeks of its listing, also for a great price-preserving the value of the neighborhood. Go Matt! Less ... More

Matt recently assisted us with the purchase of a condo near the University of Florida. He made sure that the entire process ran smoothly and answered our questions promptly. I highly recommend Matt as a realtor to anyone who wants an honest, educated, efficient individual to work with them.

Matt Thomas has been nothing short of amazing to work with. As a first-time home buyer, I reached out to Matt based on the recommendation of a friend. Matt was quick to respond to my first request, and I never looked back. Matt and I connected right away and he listened to my entire wishlist. Within a month, we were able to find my perfect home and start the contracting process. Matt walked me through every step of the process and allowed me to make every decision. I appreciated that Matt kept the emotions out of it and allowed me to ask questions and come to my own conclusions. He offered his opinion only when I asked for it, and answered every question. He was so quick to respond to any of my requests, and I felt like he was always available. Through the entire process I felt as though I was Matt's only client - I received that much personal attention. I am so happy with my home and feel like I could not have had a better experience or worked with better people! I am looking forward to working with Matt and his team again when I sell my home in the distant future. I know I can expect great professionalism and expertise from the Thomas Group! Less ... More

My wife and I bought our first house a week ago and Matt was our realtor. He was great; he answer all our questions. We would email him and there was a fast respond time. Very professional and laid back; never demanded anything from us and also on top of things. From the main office we would get weekly updates on the progress of the house. The lender (Levis Johnson and Troy from Alarion bank) were awesome also. We were very lucky to have the dream team on our side. I would highly recommend Matt and his team. Thanks a lot, Gus Less ...

I purchased my first home about 2 months ago. I feel very lucky had Matt as my buyer agent. He was professional and a very nice guy. He was very patient, listened to my demands, and guided me through the whole procedure of purchasing a home... He responded my emails fast. The lender (Susan from Suntrust) he recommended was fantastic (highly recommend too). With both Susan and Matt's help, I closed my house within 3 weeks... Matt also helped me a lot with settling down in the new home after closing... Thank you so so much for all your kind help, Matt~ Less ... More

As a first time home buyer Matt made the experience a very pleasant one. Although we had to go through two 30 day extensions he was there every step of the way reassuring me everything would work out. I was deeply moved by Matt's willingness to go above and beyond to make sure this experience was nothing short of a good one and to make sure I was 100% satisfied at the end of the day; that was what meant the most to me. I've truly gained a friend through the process. Although we have already closed I still consider him my Realtor. And who knows, maybe a few years from now he'll be helping me buy a whole new house! Thanks for everything Matt you were great! When friends and family decide they want to take a whack at homeownership you will be the first person I refer them to because I know you'll take great care of them as you did me! Less ... More

Helped me buy home
When we decided to purchase our first home we had a lot of questions that needed to be answered. One of the very first questions was ?Do we need a realtor? and ?How do we find a realtor that we can trust?? Some friends of ours purchased a home a few months prior to us beginning the home searching journey, and they highly recommended Matt. We are glad that we took their recommendation because if it wasn't for Matt we might not have found the home that we purchased. Throughout the home buying process Matt was by our side answering questions that we had, dealing with inspectors, working with the other realtor, communicating with our bank, and making the entire process run smoothly. We heard horror stories from friends who were also first time home buyers and we are happy to say that none of their stories became our reality. It is Matt's dedication, hard work, professionalism, and willingness to go above and beyond that makes him a great realtor. We plan on having Matt help us find our next home whenever that might be and we highly recommend Matt Thomas of Thomas Realty to anyone that is searching for an exceptional realtor. Less ... More

Listed and sold a home
Let me start by saying that over the years, I have bought/sold over 15 homes, so I have a bit of experience in working with real estate professionals. And this transaction was expecially challenging. We live in Colorado, and the home (purchased as an investment before the bubble burst) located in Gainesville. We needed a local agent, but couldn't afford to travel there to meet them. I don't remember how we found Matt, but we sure are glad we did. He guided us on how to price the house, and helped us with recommendations on lawn care, stopped by the house to check on it from time to time, took pictures and posted a very nice write up on the property. He also constantly kept us updated on showings, feedback, and market conditions. And this was a lower end investment property! If we got this level of service with our home, I can only imagine the incredible level of service that higher cost properties would get. I only wish Matt had been there for all of my other housing purchases and sales. Very good job, Matt. Thank you very much. Less ... More

Matt was an excellent realtor to work with. He is very knowledgeable about the home buying process and guided us every step of the way. He was very responsive, both by email and phone. We ended up purchasing a beautiful historic home in an excellent location. Matt helped us negotiate a fair price and get the seller to pay for several repairs. We highly recommend him.

I would highly recommend Matt to anyone interested in buying or selling a home in Gainesville. He responds to emails/calls immediately, and helped us close several weeks early. We will definitely be using him to list our home when the time comes to move again. I can't say enough how great he was to work with! All other vendors we used in the home buying process had nothing but positive things to say as well.

If you are looking for a realtor that will treat you like family then look no further. Matt Thomas has gone above and beyond for us in the search for our new home and during the construction of our new home. He communicated regularly and kept us abreast of any situations that arose during the building process. Even after closing, he still communicates regularly. We highly recommend using Matt Thomas or Thomas Realty for all your real estate needs. We will definitely use Matt in the future and are happy that we chose him as our realtor.

My wife and I just recently moved to Gainesville to be near family. We selected Matt Thomas as our realtor. We provided him with our list of wants for the new house, he listened and he performed outstandingly. His responsiveness to our questions was excellent and always in a very timely manner. His knowledge of the local market and helping us get an outstanding value for our price was great. On top of this his professionalism and personability made this process one of the best that we have encountered in our many moves around the U.S. I would recommend Matt to anyone seeking a home in Gainesville area.

Matt has been our trusted realtor for over two years. During that time, he helped us sell the remaining 20% of our condos which we converted from a 176-unit apartment complex in 2005. Matt's strengths include his honest and professional demeanor, availability to assist us in managing the units (we are not a local owner) as needed, marketing strategies, and his overall real estate knowledge. Most impressive is the fact that Matt helped us navigate through a very rough market for home sellers, while we still received a net financial return which exceeded our expectations. As a development company, we would not hesitate to highly recommend Matt Thomas to sellers, whether they are selling a single family home, or an entire condominium complex! Less ... More

I worked with Matt to buy a condo for my residency at Shands. As a first time home buyer and someone new to Gainesville, I don't think I could have done it without an outstanding realtor. He guided me through the entire process and alerted me to potential pitfalls along the way. His recommendations re: location were spot on and because Matt is tech savvy, it was no problem to do a majority of the search remotely. He was familiar with which banks had loan programs that suited my needs, which saved me a lot of time. He was also able to work within my schedule when it came to viewing properties. After I was under contract, he was able to recommend reliable businesses for each service I needed: home inspection, home-owners insurance, etc. Throughout the process, Matt was prompt, professional, and friendly. I trusted that he had my best interest in mind, and was not let down. Overall, I had a great experience working with Matt and would recommend him without hesitation , especially to anyone new to the Gainesville area! Less ... More

My time with Matt Thomas was wonderful. He was very fast when it came to getting answers to any questions I had. He was also very patient with me. I never felt pressured or left out in the cold at any time. He knows the area very well and was good about relating the local services that would be of interest to me specifically. He showed interest in what my families needs were and was more then happy to go the extra mile when needed. I cannot say enough in the space that I have here. I very happily recommend Thomas Group Realty to anyone looking to buy a home in Gainesville. I also want to say I did have the pleasure of working with Lore a few times as well who was also very pleasant to work with. Home buying is a very stressful thing to do, but these people do a wonderful job of making it as close to enjoyable as you can possibly get. Less ... More

Matt Thomas put to good use his years of real state expertise in locating and identifying legitimate, qualified renters who would also treat my townhouse as they would of they owned it. His professional networking in the Gainesville community greatly accelerated finding a pool of interested renters, a steady flow of interested clients were ever present in my home. Within a week of listing my townhouse Matt had it rented. Matt was also extremely helpful in educating me as to the proper owner - renter roles and responsibilities. I used Matt on a previous enterprise, I intend to continue to use Matt's services ! Less ... More

Matt was a pleasure working with from start to finish. When I called Matt about a particular home I was interested in, unfortunately a bid had already been placed. But Matt kept working with me to find a home that suited my needs. Once we found it, we made sure everything went smoothly start to finish. Matt was quick to point out potential issues with a house and made be feel good about my decision once I had made it. Matt was there to help me handle problems generally outside the scope of his job, and was nothing but a gentleman and a pleasure to be around throughout. He's a great guy and a professional - I can't recommend him enough. If I find myself in the market for a property in Gainesville again, Matt will be getting a call from me. Less ... More

I worked with Matt to purchase two condos in Gainesville. Couldn't have found a better person to work with. Having bought and sold many properties for investment purposes since 1984 I have worked with many different realtors. Matt is down to earth and hard working, but more importantly, he listens to what is said and obtains accurate information. My purchases through Matt were done long distance--I live in Pennsylvania and the purchases were in Gainesville, Florida. The distance complicated the transactions but Matt handled everything extremely well and kept me informed at every turn. I'd highly recommend Matt to anyone experienced or inexperienced in real estate. Dr. Michael D. Torchia Columbia, PA Less ... More

Matt has all the skills necessary to take a piece of property from listing to closing without a problem. Most importantly though, Matt has a great work ethic and was always prompt in returning phone calls, emails and tackling whatever problems or issues arose throughout the process. As a commercial real estate attorney, I deal with real estate agents on a daily basis and Matt is at the very top of my list for property in north central Florida.

We worked with Matt for almost a year during our serarch for a home in the Gainesville area. I told Matt upfront that we were in no hurry to move and wanted to look at a many options. Despite this, he was very supportive and worked tirelessly to find homes that we might want to consider. In the end, we found a great house at a very good price and we have been extremely satisfied. Matt is certainly knowledgeable of the business and makes the process very efficient.

My wife and I were new to town, and were making our biggest purchase of our lives...a new home! We intervied half a dozen realtors from both large and small brokerage firms. My wife and I ran all of the potential realtors through a compensatory interview and felt that Matt Thomas was the most qualified to help us negotiate the Real estate "waters". Matt not only found our dream home in a few days but also, helped us negotiate with banks and lead us to a great lender.
