What Clients Have to Say About Matthew...

I would highly recommend and have recommended Matthew to my friends. ( they were thrilled too) He is the go to guy to get the job done. Matthew listed my home and sold it very quickly and orchestrated a same day close on my my purchase which was a short sale. Short sales are tricky, they require a little more knowledge than the average realtor has and can be very time-consuming . I was completely impressed to close on one and close on another in the same day. Matthew knows the market, is responsive to any question you may have . Matthew works tirelessly to earn your business. He goes the extra mile for his clients. Matthew Southard is a five star Realtor in my opinion if you are looking to buy or sell give him a call, you won't be sorry!

07/31/2016 - NikkiSchneberger Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $200K in Crestview, FL.

Matthew was a professional in every since of the word. Any questions I had he answered them promptly and explained all of the grey areas in the contract. All of this helped the entire process so through smoothly without any problems.

04/04/2016 - zuser20151007052701294 Showed home in 2015 in Deerland, Crestview, FL 32539.

Matthew was very helpful through the whole home buying process, and listened to our wants/needs. After the first group of houses we looked at, he knew EXACTLY what we were looking for. As first time home buyers we found his construction, realtor, and his personal home owning knowledge especially valuable. Matthew was a pleasure to work with and we would definitely recommend him to anyone in the market for home.

06/19/2014 - Victoria A. Greathouse Bought a home in 2014.

We've been using Mathew to manage our house in Florida for almost two years now. He had never let us down. He had renters in there quickly, fixed any issues we had that he was able to fix and kept me paid on time ?. He gave me a small heart attack when he called to tell me a few weeks before Christmas to tell me our renters have short notice orders and will be out within the week ? Mathew got in the house and got it cleaned, painted, fixed anything needing to be fixed and have new renters moving in this week. Seriously, thank you Mathew for being on the job and giving it 100% when it's such a busy time of year. If you're in Crestview hit him up! He works amazing for military families.

I decided to sell my house and put an offer in on a short sale. Those that have dealt with a short sale know it can be nothing short of a nightmare. Matthew orchestrated a simultaneous close in a very short period of time. He was able to negotiate a full price offer on my sale, he funded a drone video for my house which showcased it in the best light. It went under contract extremely quickly. He is always available for any questions you may have, he is very responsive to all phone calls, texts, email whichever suits your need. Matthew is extremely knowledgeable in his market. If you are in the market to buy or sell give him a call you will not regret it I promise you.

My wife and I rented a property through Matthew and had a great rental experience with him. When we decided to buy our own house Mathew was amazing and super helpful. We have had friends that we pointed his direction and they have been equally satisfied in their buying experience.
