Korby was great from the first time I spoke with him to the day I was able to purchase the property. Very helpful and the negotiation was excellent. I would definitely recommend him to all my friends and family for any future purchases & selling. He would immediately reply to my questions and give me advise. Great Advises!!! Thank you very much!!! It was my first to purchase a property so I wasn't too keen about Real Estate Agents but Korby is a very kind, sincere and thoughtful agent. My negative image of a realtor disappeared in a second. Mahalo Korby!!!!! Less ... More

Helped me buy home
My wife and I recently purchased a home in the Mauna Lani resort area of the Hawaii Big Island with the intent of living part time in the home, but also renting it out when we were not there as a vacation rental. Whereas we have been familiar with other Hawaiian islands, this was our first time on the Big Island, and we were new to becoming Hawaiian property and vacation rental owners. From the moment we met Korby, he provided the right level of guidance to whatever we were interested in. My wife and I appreciated his relaxed approach (no pressure) and intimate knowledge of the island. If there were questions we had that he could not immediately answer, he was very quick to follow through in his research to provide one. Throughout the process, his responsiveness and willingness to "go the extra mile" has really helped us navigate the tricky and complex requirements of becoming Hawaii property owners. Finally, as we reviewed our readiness of the home for vacation renters, Korby continues to show his commitment to quality, and how to ensure we are doing everything possible to provide a great vacation period for those that come! I would definitely recommend Korby's services to others! Less ... More

Korby is fantastic!! This is our first home and he was very helpful in giving us the information we needed about lenders, the home buying process, and was very patient with our questions. Even when our initial lender totally let us down (I will NEVER, EVER refer anyone to AmeriPro Funding, especially Matthew Posey in Austin, TX), and we were at our wits end thinking we were going to be homeless, Korby introduced us to a different lender that he recommended who managed to get us back on track and eventually closed and into our house. I feel like we were very lucky to have had Korby in our corner - he showed us that he cared. He is extremely knowledgeable, patient, and very accessible. I would recommend Korby to anyone looking to purchase a new home. Less ... More

I have bought and sold 5 houses and have had good and bad experiences with Real Estate Agents. Korby is definitely high on the "Good" list. Korby is very nice and professional to work with. He is also very through and detail oriented. He was very accomodating in being available to meet my time schedule for home showings, provde information on homes that were available, and show me as many homes as I wanted to see. He has alot of knowledge about the local housing market, and is also knowledgeable about home repairs. He was able to point out the good and bad points in the homes I looked at which was very helpful in making a decision. Korby has a through understanding of all of the required Real Estate documents, documents required by the Mortgage Lender and Title Company, and closing procedures. I feel very confident in recommending Korby to anyone looking for a great Real Estate Professional. I have trust in his integrity, knowledge, and standards of work excellence. Less ... More

Korby was very helpful over an extended time while we searched for a suitable home. He was very knowledgeable about neighborhoods in the Austin area. On numerous weekend and holiday trips to Austin over an extended time, he was always available to show us houses. In short, Korby met all of our expectations during our house search.

I was very happy to have Korby as my agent. He helped me get my house, and he was the guy I called when it was time for my mom to get her house. In both cases, he was there every step of the way, and made sure that the process went smoothly. And, if I ever want to sell my house, he will be the guy I'll call on to represent me again.

Korby stuck with our family for 13 months of house hunting, all over the Austin metropolis, Texas! We looked at houses in Round Rock, Cedar Park, Kyle, and Leander! Our first house was struck by lightning before we could close. A month after that of looking for another new home, we found a perfect one for our extended family. After three lenders, one house fire and two appraisals, we are settled in our new home! If you want an agent who will go the distance; chose Korby Matsen, the ROCKY BALBOA of the Austin real estate market! Less ... More

Helped me buy and sell homes
We?ve worked with Korby before, so when we decided to sell our house he was our first choice. Korby is knowledgeable, patient, and accommodating. He makes you his priority. Our house had multiple offers and was under contract within DAYS of being on the market! The pictures he took and the listing details were top grade. Sold! In looking for a new home we encountered some bumps in the road. We had trouble finding a house to our liking/price range in the area that we wanted to live in. Korby stuck with us and walked us through all of our options. When we finally found a house, Korby helped us negotiate a really good price. We are truly satisfied. Whether you are buying or selling, if you want real results he is the realtor to call. Less ... More

Korby was a pleasure to work with. He listened to our needs and went out of his way to find houses that met those needs with our very limited budget. He found the perfect house for us the first time! I would highly recommend working with Korby for anyone wanted to buy or sell a home.

I met Korby about 3 yrs. ago and asked him to help me find a home to buy. and i'm kind picky i swear the man is a saint because we must have looked at at least 3 dozen homes over the course of year and a half. but he stayed the course and did not give up. He finally found the one i fell in love with thanks Korby. will use you always in the future.

Korby went absolutely out of his way to help me find a home to purchase. He showed me at least 30 properties (some more than once!) over several months and was always available whenever I needed him. As you can guess by the fact that I viewed so many properties, I was a very picky buyer. Korby did a fantastic job of taking my very specific criteria and only recommending places that fit what I was looking for. He showed me houses on my lunch break, after work, and on weekends. I'm sure I ran him ragged but he never complained and made excellent evaluations of each of the places we looked at. When I finally got to the point of narrowing down houses for final offers, he had already put together market comparisons based on the properties he anticipated I'd choose. He knew the market and the realistic pricing points and gave very sound advice when it came to negotiating a final price so that our haggling period was short and absolutely painless. To top it off, he even called me four months after I bought my house just to check in to see how everything was working out and even updated me on a final sale price for a house that he and I both agreed was way overpriced during my initial home search (he was absolutely right--the house eventually sold for $20,000 below its original asking price). Beyond being good at what he does, he's also just a pleasant person to be around which is a huge benefit when you're dealing with a potentially stressful situation like buying a home. I would heartily recommend Korby for your home buying needs. Less ... More
