Success Stories


The experience with Matt Blashaw went so well he is presently representing us on the purchase of two new properties.
— Stephen Ball

I have purchased over 10 homes for personal use and an equal number for resale over 4 decades and have never experienced better representation in any of my previous acquisitions or sales. His construction knowledge gave me the comfort of working with a highly experienced contractor when it came  to vital inspections and a thorough "due diligence" process. He anticipated potential road blocks in the purchase agreement and was instrumental in developing solutions that convinced all parties to our most recent acquisition to make adjustments t expectations and get the deal done. The experience went so well he is presently representing us on the purchase of two new properties.

I would highly Matt Blashaw to anyone. Matt answered all of our questions and responded to text and phone calls immediately. He has a contractor background and he was able to identify some health and safety issues with our home. He had a competent inspector validate the issues and professionally negotiated our offer to address the issues. Matt was very thorough with all the paperwork and communicated with us to effectively get everything done on time. He was also available to help us on a weekend to give us access to evaluate what repairs would need to be made. Matt has my highest recommendation.

Just stop looking and go with Matt!
— Ric Miller

Hello all. Based on this rating system, I see a problem. Great people deserve the highest possible rating that you can give them. It's not about stars or any symbol you want to come up with. It's about honest individuals doing what they say they're going to do, so that the percentage you give for them for all of the professional attention, just feels like great value. Matt and The Smith Group are truly a wonderful team and will make your real estate experience something you'll want to share with others. But to play by Zillow's rating system, I'd have to give Matt, 6 Stars. He sold my home in less time than I could have hoped for and for that, I am grateful. Just stop looking and go with this guy, he's simply the best. Good luck and happy house hunting.

Matt has been a great connection for me to Orange County real estate. He asks the right questions and takes the time to really connect the dots. He's not afraid to get creative, easy to build rapport with, and I really trust his familiarity with the area.

Matt really listens to his clients!
— Amy Hall

I'm not normally a review writer but I just have to praise Matt. Matt is amazing to work with! He really listens to his clients, what they want, what they need and why. He goes above and beyond to try and deliver all of your desires, in the usually unrealistic price range we all have :) he is super knowledgeable and has wonderful ideas on how to tweak the space to make it work for you. He can explain all the hard to understand verbiage simply and he's an honest guy! Overall I can't say enough good things about Matt. He's definitely the kind of person you want to work with when searching and negotiating for real estate. 5 stars and 2 thumbs up.
