|"I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about working with Matt Huband. I am a first time home buyer and he put me at ease and alleviated all of my concerns that came up throughout the process. He was extremely thorough in all aspects of the home buying process and made sure I understood each step. He was very accommodating in working around my schedule and always answered all of my questions in a very efficient and detailed manner. I would highly recommend him to anyone in the market for a new home! Thank you Matt!"|

|We SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO appreciate all you did for us. You did so much more and it was noticed and again we thank you. We will surely recommend you to anyone that may ask in the future for buying or selling. You have been A+ in our book, but I knew that would be the case and is why I chose you.|
|Drs. Bruce & Dee Shepard-NC|
|Matt, we want to thank you for all the time and effort you put into this transaction. We were impressed with how efficiently and calmly you dealt with all the issues presented. We were totally satisfied with your handling of our investment. Thank you. We will not hesitate to seek your expertise again|

|It has been pleasure working with you and getting to know you. You did a wonderful job selling my home so quickly; you're smart, you're always on time for appointments, you're always on top of everything and keep me aware of what's going on, and you are one of the nicest young men I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with on a business matter. I wish you the best of luck!!|

|Sue and I enjoyed spending the afternoon with you yesterday. Your knowledge, honesty and friendliness was awesome. We also appreciate you understanding what our budget is, and not being aggressive. If I have any friends that are looking at moving or buying down here, you can bet your ass I will have them contact you! Thanks again|

|This was Matt’s challenge: 1. Four joint buyers 2. Living in two states 3. Buying property in a third 4. Trying to realize a 20 year dream 5. On a budget Matt made the dream a reality !! Luck was seriously on our side when Matt was chosen via a random link on a cell phone. We could have gotten a real clunker of an agent. Instead we hit the jackpot. It must be a lot of fun trying to show houses to four decision makers at one time. Matt is so pleasant and easy going it didn’t bother him one bit. Matt Huband is a consummate professional. He responds so fast to communications your head might spin. Every single thing we asked of him was immediately and fully addressed. Saw our home in October and closed in December. Thank you Matt for having such a high standard for serving your clients. It is greatly appreciated!!|

|Matt did a tremendous job in helping us turn our dream into a reality. From the initial meeting through closing and beyond, Matt has been extremely helpful. He made sure we thoroughly understood the market conditions, the general trend, as well as the potential to generate rental income from various properties. He understood our situation in terms of wants/needs, budget, need for turn-key vs. fix-'er up, and was able to steer us in the right direction. He sent countless listings via email and answered all of our questions in a thoughtful and meaningful way. As we continued to deliberate and change our minds/needs, Matt remained patient and never put us under any pressure to make a decision. He ended up showing us a lot of properties (some multiple times) and eventually helped us make a great decision for our family. After the offer was made and the contract was accepted, Matt continued to be involved and more importantly, provide much needed help at each step along the way - including property inspection, mortgage approval, legal/real estate questions, and even went in person to the local cable company to switch over our account at closing. After closing and during the past few months, Matt has visited the property on our behalf to help with hurricane prep, check for storm damage, and even go by the house to check something out after we had left town. We are thankful to Matt for his service and consider him not only a real estate broker, but a friend.”|

|"We starting thinking about buying a house in OBX as an investment property a few years ago. Ten months ago, we got serious and started cruising the MLS listings and various realtors' web sites. Some sites required signing up with contact information. We were reluctant to do that because we knew we'd be hounded by those realtors as soon as we signed up. We found Matt's web site to be helpful and well organized and it didn't require signing up so we could still browse anonymously. We are scientists for a living and we wanted to research everything--including our realtor--very slowly and carefully before committing. Hours and hours were spent reading "investment property" and "second home" purchase books and web sites--with special attention to the "choosing a realtor" chapters, all while maintaining anonymity so as not to be hounded by realtors. Well, let us save you the trouble of all that research--choose Matt Huband and you're getting the best. He knows the OBX market and the ins and outs of investment property extremely well. He's calm and patient, working at your pace with no pressure, but quick to respond to email and phone calls when you need him. He's resourceful in finding the best houses to show, he's great with negotiations, and he's a nice, friendly guy."|
