Mathew helped us purchase a beautiful home in Ewa Beach - this wasn't any ordinary purchase. It was a challenge and emotional start due to over 10 offers presented to the sellers within a week, but thanks to Mathew's professionalism and creative negotiation skills (escalation clause - look it up you may need to do this one day!) - the owners' selected our offer. He emailed us weekly updates/status reports through the escrow/loan process and was always available to answer our questions and concerns in detail and with a smile. Thanks Steve and Mits, our dear friends who referred Mathew to us. We will refer Mathew to anyone out there looking for an AWESOME realtor! Less ... More

Mat was amazing. A friend recommended his services to me. I was heading over to a showing and stumbled upon a gem. I asked Mat to assist as my realtor in the purchase. The place needed some work, but the view of the ocean and the park made it worth every penny. He went out of his way in helping me negotiate the unit and even recommended home inspectors, property manager, contractors, and home lender. I was able to get a 3.37% without points! He was always available. I never even noticed he was juggling another client. Less ... More

We were referred to Matthew and had a great experience during the course of our purchase. Matthew exposed us to areas we had never considered and gave personal knowledge of each area. He was responsive and treated us VERY WELL, was not pushy, and was able to negotiate a contract that we were happy with. I would highly recommend Matthew's services to anyone and we will definitely use him again for our next transaction!!!

I have bought and sold 7 properties and had the pleasure of dealing with many many agents but this guy is the worst ever. He hung up on me! All I asked him was "how long have the current owners owned the home" ? He told me it doesnt matter and to get to the point and hung up. BTW this is a 3.2 million dollar home. I would not buy a house nor have this dingy sell my house!!

Mathew was recommended by USAA. It took us 15 minutes to recognize his potential value, two showings for him to bring in multiple offers. The staging he arranged was excellent as was the photographer. The two open houses were painless. Throughout the process, he handled everything flawlessly and kept us continuously updated. We sold for asking price, the highest ever in the area. I absolutely recommend Mathew Ngo. I asked him to handle a second property on Friday and he produced a potential buyer on Monday. Less ... More

Mathew made a first class professional presentation about how he would market our home and we were sold! He gave us advice on how to "de-clutter and de-personalize" our home. He advised us on how to make our home as attractive as possible to the broadest spectrum of potential buyers. He brought in a professional to stage the unit for a professional photographer. His marketing is ultra professional. He provided a weekly detailed activity report that kept us informed up to the minute. If anything of note happened, or was about to happen, we received a brief email. His communication was superb. He did everything right because we received an acceptable offer in 15 days and closed within ten weeks of listing! Less ... More

In looking for a retirement home we visited several areas and worked with several agents all over the US. Mathew was the most responsive of all that we met and was very pro-active in negotiating for us and handling details when we were 3,000 miles away. We highly recommend him.

To begin with there are not enough adjectives to describe how we feel about Mathew. We have bought or sold numerous properties over the last 40 + years and were represented by some very good agents but Mathew is head shoulders above them all. To begin with we live on the mainland, which I thought might prove to be difficult along with the fact we had never met Mathew in person brought even more concern. However after starting to correspond by e-mail all our concerns vanished once we became confident of his knowledge of the uniqueness of the real estate of the island and it's buyers we were more than satisfied. We had a beautiful unit however due to circumstances beyond our control it was in 4 different escrows prior to closing. It's been my experience that when you start having problems agents want to lower the price, stop having open houses and basically put your listing on autopilot. Not Mathew, he continued to market our listing like it was brand new all the while keeping us informed of what was happening, answering our questions until the transfer of title was complete. We could always count on Mathew to assist with what ever came up that we couldn't do because of our location. Respectfully, Sherryl and Michael Mencacci Less ... More

As a Realtor I was looking for an agent in another market that I could refer a client to. I did research and a phone interview and found Mathew both knowledgeable and professional. I recommended that my clients use him to list their home and they happily agreed. After dealing with Mathew they were very happy with my recommendation and found Mathew's level of service above and beyond their expectation. I would and will refer Mathew to further clients.

Mathew Ngo was by far the best realtor we have worked with. He was very responsive to our questions and concerns throughout the sales process and was able to resolve issues promptly and thoroughly. His attention to detail and his proactiveness to ensure a smooth escrow was invaluable. If you ever need a realtor in Honolulu, I highly recommend Mathew Ngo. I normally do not write good reviews but in this case this case I had to give credit when credit is due. Great job Mathew!

I could write a novel espousing the incredible virtues of Mathew Ngo. Suffice it to say that he sold my late mother-in-law?s penthouse apartment under some truly adverse conditions and marketed it so well that within the week we had many competing offers. His knowledge of the local market, integrity driven negotiating skills, and amazing work ethic enabled us to sell the ?as is? property above our asking price. From listing to closing in 54 days! Three weeks prior to the closing date, I was hit by a car while bicycling and exactly one week later, my husband suffered a heart attack. With both of us being incapacitated, I worried about all the last minute things that needed doing to fulfill the seller?s contingency obligations. Mathew stepped in immediately and handled everything we were unable to do. He even sent a ?Get Well? card with offers of personal assistance! Talk about a full-service realtor! I highly recommend Mathew to anyone wishing to buy or sell real-estate. I promise, you will not be disappointed. You may even come away with a renewed faith in the human race. He is not only a consummate professional, but a truly compassionate human being. Less ... More

Our condo was somewhat difficult to sell since the building was going through a major repair and upgrade program including concrete spalling and re-piping work. There was a special assessment associated with the repairs. Matthew presented the repairs in a positive light emphasizing that the work would enhance property value. Matthew is a skillful and experienced negotiator. He was able to secure a good sales price as well as a back up offer for us. Matthew is extremely efficient and responsive. Matthew made us feel as though we were his only client since he seemed to be always available to promptly answer any concerns we had. Even though Matthew is very successful and must be busy to handle the transactions he does, he made it appear to us that we were his top and only priority! Very impressive responsiveness! Matthew operates his business with high integrity. He let us know immediately that if we listed our condo with him, he would not accept another similar listing in our building since that would create a conflict of interest. We were traveling out of state when our sale closed. Matthew helped to ensure that even though we were not present to handle last minute issues that came up just before closing, the sale went through smoothly without making us anxious on our holiday.

If you want to get what you want in this real estate market, you need The Best of the best. Mathew Ngo just proved it to us that he is The Best once again. Despite having 7 competing offers, we managed to get our place, and even closed early, all thanks to Mathew's mastery in negotiation, and skillful navigation through every complexity of the process. Smooth sailing from start to finish, couldn't ask for more!

My spouse and I selected Mathew based on his Zillow reviews; he proved to be an excellent choice. The big 3 items we care about are service, competence, and price; I?ll describe each in turn. Service: Mathew was very responsive by email and phone; he was extremely flexible in meeting us to walk through homes; he provided a packet of research for every home we visited; and he offered candid opinions on price and location. Moreover, we continually felt that he had our best interests in mind. Competence: Mathew takes his career as an agent seriously. He had no problem answering detailed questions on regulation and process. He understood the characteristics of the house we were looking for, and was quite good at filtering for listings we would want to see. Matt was also prompt with paperwork and reminders of important events. Price: Matt was willing to negotiate a purchase rebate. In addition, he performed a few items he felt were important at his own expense. For example, he was concerned about infestation and wanted a second opinion on a termite inspection. Before I even read the email explaining his rationale, he had the inspection done and covered the cost. He?s extremely fair-minded. In sum, Matt was professional, responsive, and equitable. We expect to move again in a few years and will be using Mathew again. Less ... More

Mat is an AMAZING realtor! When I asked him to sell my home, he marketed it more than I could imagine. He held brokers opens, open houses, did mass e-mails, etc. The escrow went very smooth. Mat went above and beyond to make sure this deal was closed. He arranged repairs and cleaning for the unit. He personally oversaw the work that was done. I was off Island during the entire time of this sale and I depended on Mat to be acting 100% in my best interests and he was fantastic!!!!! I would recommend Mat above any realtor in Hawaii! Less ...

We just purchased a condo in Hawaii. We have purchased two homes previously and have sold two homes before; so we have some experience dealing with realtors both as buyers and as sellers. Mathew is by far the best, most professional, and most knowledgeable of all the realtors we have dealt with. He was very knowledgeable about the history and financial condition of the condos in the area where we wanted to buy, he steered us away from the problematic buildings and helped us identify the better buildings. He was always very punctual, he kept consistent track of and kept us informed of the status of each step and contingency involved in the home-buying process. He uses DocuSign, which is a service that enabled us to electronically sign all documents (except the final Escrow papers that are required by law to be signed in person.) This saved us, and everyone else involved in the transaction, a lot of time and travel hassles. As an example of his attention to detail, he discovered some termite damage to the unit that the Termite Inspector had missed. We were able to address this issue with the seller prior to closing, which potentially saved us a lot of money. When we found at closing that some of the final closing costs were more than what we had anticipated, he helped negotiate with the Escrow agent to obtain a waiver of some of the fees. At the end of the transaction, after we had closed, Mathew sent us a .pdf copy of all the documents that were involved in our purchase transaction. That will come in handy for future reference. With no reservations, we highly recommend Mathew to anyone looking for a realtor in Hawaii. In the future, when we are ready to sell our home in Hawaii, Mathew will be the first person we call.

Mat Ngo assisted us with the purchase of our Waikiki Landmark condo and I highly recommend him as a broker for other buyers and/or sellers. He is very personable, cool in pressured situations, knows the local market, and is always accessible. We communicated with him personally, by telephone, and by e-mail and always received an instant response. He maintains a calendar of escrow milestones and constantly updates the client on what remains to be done to complete the sale. We encountered a few rough spots along the way and Mat handled them professionally and with a balanced approach. He never lost his cool throughout some very difficult negotiations. He is an extremely capable negotiator. We found him to be very knowledgeable on the mechanics of the real estate purchase process. When we had questions concerning something he was unsure about, he was always quick to research the topic and provide a thorough and accurate response. Mat has his broker's license, so is able to make decisions that a non-broker would have to refer to his broker. Mat's broker status definitely eliminated potential delays and made the purchase process much smoother. We wish you every success with your real estate transaction. If you are seeking a broker to assist you, we heartily recommend Mathew Ngo! Less ... More

Matthew was by far the best agent we came in contact with over the last two years. He was constantly on top of the inventory that was available. If he did not have information, he immediately did the appropriate research to provide us with the tools we needed to make well informed decisions. For each rental property we considered, we were provided with a thorough cash flow analysis using the latest available data for similar rental properties in the area. During the purchase, Matthew kept us abreast of everything that concerned us and handled all the other details that would have definitely frustrated us had we been left to deal with it. His communication skills were excellent and we were never left in the dark to wonder what was going on at any step of the way.

Within hours of Mathew listing our Honolulu condo for sale, we received an offer on it for the full asking price. You may call us lucky, and yes, we definitely are - we're lucky that we called upon Mathew to handle the sale. We live in Virginia now and initially thought we would need to fly back to get the place ready to sell. As it turns out, we didn't have to. Mathew handled the prep work (from cleaning arrangements to professional photos and virtual tour) right off the bat. He was very proactive in his efforts and provided updates of the transaction all along the way. He is such a diligent agent and my husband and I can't express enough how grateful we are to Mathew!

We were never rushed and he encouraged us to look until we found our dream home, then he helped us purchase it for a great price giving us instant equity. I highly recommend Mathew Ngo. Less ... More

Mathew was excellent to deal with and was able to get our condo sold in less than a month! His knowledge of the area helped in making the right decisions when it came to listing and getting the sale. Even with a very rapid sale he was still motivated to continue with closing the process, keeping everything organized and updated and moving our property. A pleasure to work with.

As the realtor in our recent sale of our Waikiki condominium Mathew Ngo has gone above and beyond in every sense of the phrase, from the initial listing of our property in which he arranged professional photographs and videos to advising us in how to handle our tenants. In fact he even assisted our tenants in relocating when our condo sold. The entire process including: the listing, showing, sale and escrow was a pleasant experience. Mr. Ngo was at all times professional and prompt in his response to any questions and/or concerns we may have had. He sent weekly updates to all parties involved with clear, concise instructions regarding the status of the sale. All transactions were done electronically and made simple for us and followed- up by an e-mail confirmation from him. If we were to do any type of real-estate transaction again in Hawaii we would not hesitate to utilize Mr. Ngo' s services and would recommend him to anyone who is serious about selling their property.

I was away during the entire sale of my condo. Mathew took care of everything for me. Mathew is very professional and thoughtful. I think he had high expectations for me that were reasonable as well. I would definately recommend Mathew and the knowledge he brings with him!

Mathew Ngo from Century 21 has made our first home purchase such a pleasant and memorable one. Being a first-time home buyer and finding the right property that meets all your needs is not an easy task than I thought it would be. However, working with Mathew made it such an easy and quick transition from prospective buyer to actual owner. He was very informative with current market analysis and his follow-up is bar-none exceptional! He's very sincere and professionalism really stands out. From our very first showing which was 4 months ago to our very last one prior to finding our perfect unit, I do believe he has saved us a great deal of time by steering us in the right direction in each showing and educating us throughout the whole way. The progression with viewing property after property was very apparent, with us quickly finding the right property. Not to mention, he saved us a great deal of money with the negotiation of the final price and we're still saving money with his recommendations within his vast network of loan officers, property inspectors, carpenters, electricians, that can only come with experience. I would very highly recommend Mathew to my close friends and family and will definitely call on Mathew again when the time comes to either sell or buy a property. Less ... More

It took me nearly a year to find the perfect place to buy in Honolulu. I worked with Mathew Ngo that whole time. Mathew's service during that year was consistently 5 stars. In fact, if there was a 10 star rating, I would give him that instead. Really. He's that good. I live on the Mainland and wound up buying my condo unit sight unseen. Why? Because I utterly trusted Mathew's judgment. His service included checking out units for me since I couldn't be there myself. Mathew took multiple pictures and videos of the unit so I had a good sense of the unit's condition and view. Wow! I loved that. I had many questions for Mathew during the year I worked with him: What condo building in Waikiki is financially sound? What's the difference between a leasehold property and fee simple? If I wanted to rent out my unit while I'm not there, can you recommend a reputable property manager? What are property taxes like in Hawaii? No matter what my question was, Mathew responded promptly and with an in-depth, knowledgeable answer. Hands down, Mathew Ngo provided me with service beyond my expectations. If you are looking for a real estate agent in Honolulu, stop looking. Pick up the phone or get on the internet and contact Mathew Ngo immediately. I guarantee you will be utterly pleased. I sure was.
