Russell and his team were easy to work with and did an excellent job in accommodating our requests to look at homes, even with short notice. We looked at quite a few houses for sale over three different trips to the area, and he was pleasant and patient over rather long viewing days involving a fair amount of driving. His assistant Pam was highly efficient at coordinating everything involving offers and communication with loan and title agents, inspectors, etc. Russell went beyond the call of duty to make our purchase possible by stepping in to solve problems with the seller's unwillingness to make necessary repairs to the property, taking it on himself to get the repairs finished. Buying a home is a stressful process at best, particularly when one is unfamiliar with the state and local area, its rules and regulations, legal requirements, etc., but Russell and team were highly effective at guiding us through the transaction. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area.
Russell was a pleasure to work with! Very knowledgeable about the Poconos area, very patient while we looked at a lot of houses before we finally figured out what was important to us, and very supportive when we changed our minds! Thanks to Russell we ended up with the home of our dreams. Russell's #1 assistant Pam could not have been more helpful. She always had the answers to all of our questions, and she made sure that we never missed a deadline! From the first meeting all the way through the closing we always felt that we had found the perfect team to work with. We recommend them without reservation!
Russell and his team offered more than a 5 star service. They were super responsive through the entire process and had ever key detail on point . I’ll definatrly be using Russell for my next purchase and would be more than happy to refer him to any close family or friend looking to buy
Russell and his team were very helpful in assisting me buying a home in Poconos. They guided me through the process, worked closely and timely with selling agent and made the whole process extremely comfortable and smooth. Thank you team!!
Thank you so much for helping us find our home in the Poconos. Russ and Pam did a wonderful job and I would highly recommend them. They are extremely knowledgeable regarding the process and the area and made our home purchase an enjoyable experience. We will definitely reach out to Russ and Pam again and recommend them to our family and friends. Thank you
Russel is an Excellent, professional and caring person. he made the process smoothly and easy for me as a first time buyer. THANK YOU SO MUCH!! Great job!
I’m a first time home buyer and Russell made me feel entirely at ease. He explained the process of each step. I totally trusted his advice! If I had any questions, he was always a phone call away, and I had many. He never made me feel like I was pestering him. He was friendly and professional!
Russell and his team were really easy to work with and very efficient! We were coming from out of town and Russell was very accommodating to ensure we could see places when the timing worked for us. He also never rushed us and was always patient making sure we felt comfortable before moving on to another house. He knows a lot about the area and can help assess what a real problem vs what’s just cosmetic and makes valuable recommendations. His team made the actual contact process very fast and they stayed on top of us to make sure that everything went off without a hitch. Would definitely recommend!
We used Real Estate Professional Russell Mattia as our agent when deciding to purchase my first house. Russsell and his team were very professional; they always answered my emails and phone calls in a timely manner. As an agent he took me to see many houses, he showed houses i picked and houses that he felt i would like. He was very helpful in describing the houses and gave me home buying tips and things to look for before i buy. He was very professional and took his time to make sure i saw every part of the houses he showed me. He did offer advice on how to improve the homes he showed me, and i found that to be very helpful because as a first time buyer i needed help and honest advice. He also taught me what to look for, "example.: construction issues, leaks, bedroom and bathroom issues." This helped me make sure the house i purchased was right for me and my family. Russell helped and showed me the perfect house for which i did purchase, and I am extremely happy with it. Russell and his co-worker Pam answered all my questions no matter how silly or small, and did so quickly. He also helped me find a mortgage broker who made the whole purchasing project extremely easy and fast. I had no problems obtaining a mortgage and having the mortgage company coordinate with Russell and the seller. I would highly recommend him to my friends, family and anyone interested in purchasing a home. Sincerely,
I would recommend Russell for all of your real estate needs. He is knowledgeable, always returns calls quickly, and is very helpful. He helped my wife and I sell a home out of state - he had the house sold within a few weeks! Awesome! Thanks!
First let me start off with saying that I'm a real estate agent in new York city, so I'm pretty critical of my field peers. Russell has an amazing team that works tirelessly to make the process as easy as possible. Pam who is on Russ team, assisted with the negotiations of repairs / inspection etc. This team is very professional and buttoned up, definitely would recommend them from a buyers perspective. Thanks a lot for the great work team!
We had Russell show us several homes throughout the course of a few months, he was very patient and never seemed to tire from my endless questions. He was very flexible and willing to work with my and my husband's differing schedules. Russell was informative, knowledgeable and professional with each and every home we saw, including the one that we asked him to show us THREE TIMES!! If that's not patience and understanding, I don't know what is! He assisted from the purchase of our home, required documents that we had questions about and gave us tips regarding the inspection of our home. I would recommend Russell to EVERYONE that is looking to purchase a home!!! Thank you Russell for helping us find our forever home!!
We dealt with Russell and Pam throughout the process of searching for our home. During this time they were both extremely professional, and very helpful anytime we had questions. They helped us negotiate a deal we were comfortable with. I would recommend them for your real estate needs and would definitely use them again in the future.
Russell and team were beyond excellent during the search and ultimate purchase of our home in Pocono Summit! Russell is an expert in the area and was able to show us exactly what we were looking for. Russell has been extremely communicative, helpful and personally invested during the whole process. Honestly cannot say enough good things and we highly recommend Russell and team to anyone looking for a property in the Poconos!
I was not sure of the area to purchase my vacation home. Russell gave me good advice. He and Pam were extremely helpful all the way from the beginning to the end.
When I started hunting for a home in the Poconos I had an agent from a nearby larger city who I thought was great and I've worked with before however, Russell far exceed my expectations. He's knowledgeable of the area, always took my calls, answered questions and best of all was 100% honest. If you've worked with agents before then you know the difference between someone trying to get rid of a home and someone who helps you fall in love with a home and the area while being totally honest and steering you in the right direction. With the Poconos being a rural area and not completely up to date with the latest technology this realtor and his team were ahead of their game, and ready for the fast paced New Yorker. If you're looking for someone who can keep up, manage expectations, be 100% honest and ultimately find you a beautiful home, look no further! Thanks to Russell and his team, I get to consider myself part of the Pocono family.
I can't thank Russell Mattie and his entire team enough for the seamless purchase of my perfect home. Russell is a true real estate professional and was committed to helping me through the very important process of buying my first home. I was genuinely impressed by Russell and his entire Team of representatives who were always there to follow-through on all my questions and concerns. They maintained a high level of communication throughout, very prompt and were very supportive on this major decision. I would recommend Russell Mattie and his highly competent team to anyone looking find their perfect home. I am looking forward to working with them in the future!
Russell and the entire family are awesome. They knew the area, finance and provided me with a ton of options. The were always available and I never felt anything negative when I called for anything. I will always deal with them and recommend them.
Russell was very helpful and responsive. Showed us a variety of homes and assisted in the negotiation, documentation and closing phases of the purchase.
Working with Russell and his team was a true pleasure. They worked tirelessly to help us find the perfect home within our budget. The Poconos can be a challenging area due to the sheer size of all that natural wonder. To find a home that is both remote and close to conveniences is difficult. In addition, areas with many vacation communities sometimes can be lacking in quality. With the help of this remarkable team, we landed the perfect home in the perfect location and it is a move-in ready gem. Thanks so much!
He understood what we wanted and helped us to find our real target in a very short time. Very professional. We were looking for a vacation house for our family (two kids). He provided multiple potential houses, most of them were wonderful. We finally bought an excellent house. Thanks!
Russell Mattia was an excellent realtor who was there to answer all our questions and concerns. He guided us expertly in our house selling process. We certainly recommend him!
Great experience. Very knowledgeable of the area. Smooth closing. Truly a mattia family experience. Would use him or recommend to a friend. Very hard working and always quickly responsive.
Russell is prompt, knowledgeable and efficient. Personable guy with an excellent office staff. Always available for help and to answer questions. Russell made our purchase a stress free and enjoyable process. Highly recommended.
After signing the sales contract, the seller reneged on the contract. Russell was very instrumental in guiding us to enforce the contract. Russell's office was in constant contact with us. They provided all the necessary paper work on a timely basis, and kept us updated on all events related to the closing of the house. We enjoyed working with Russell and his team. We highly recommend them.
If you think all realtor are all the same , I can tell you first hand Russell and his team by far surpassed my expectations From their knowledge of the local market to their promptness and dedication is what you will find when you choose to work with Russel Matia and his team .The response time to any questions I had or anything that came up was always a priority . Russel had come through for us once again and I would always choose to work with him and his team in the future if you would,like to have a realtor who knows how to negotiate and has the know how to do so don't sell yourself short ( ha ha ) work with Russel and see for yourself
Russell and his team are phenomenal. They are hands on, knowledgeable, and ready to help in any way they can. Have a question at 8:30 pm?, send them an email, in ten minutes you will have an answer. They have the experience, brains and power to bring a home to closing practically immediately. They helped me find a home, negotiate a fair price, review contracts, and get the deal to the closing table in a matter of weeks. I can't thank them enough for their hard work, dedication and professionalism.
Thank you Russell and Pam for another smooth transaction. You guys always answer my questions promptly and everything was well taken care of. I feel confident to have your expertise at my side. Thank you again.
I just closed on the house in the Poconos; Russell was very easy to work with and demonstrated a great knowledge of the area and was able to give well-thought out recommendations. Reliable, always on time, very experienced. I highly recommend Russell to all those looking to purchase a house in the Poconos!
Russell was laid back no pressure and extremely knowledgeable with all our concerns and needs. Pam was just incredible with messages and letting us know what we needed at all times. I would highly recommend this team for any and all your home needs!
Russ and his team were amazing to work with. Everything went so smoothly. I can honestly say they all went out of their way to make home buying as simple as possible. Great experience !
I've bough my new house with great help of Russel. He is highly responsible person with great professional skills and great charisma. I would strongly recommend Him for a home buyers. Thanks again Russel and Pam for all your help and patience.
A few years back, i decided to get into the real estate business and purchased 2 properties in the Pocono area that i eventually renovated. When it was time to sell, i needed an agent who was as motivated as i was and had extensive knowledge of the local markets. After doing some research online, i called and and met with Russell and agreed to have him list the properties. 6 months later, it turned out to be the best decision i made. Russell is open, honest, and always straight forward. Both he and his team kept me updated on EVERYTHING and really gave a strong sense of comfort that my houses were given the necessary attention. He knows the market, the process and a lot of the local people who are involved in real estate. It was overall a great experience and i would highly recommend him to anyone looking to have a real estate agent represent them. You will not regret it. Thank you Russ and thank you Pam. I look forward to working with you again in the near future.
Russell Mattia is a respectful and very professional realtor. Through my process of finding/buying a home, Russell did an excellent job by informing and responding immediately to any questions or concerns. I would highly recommend Russell Mattia for any individual that is looking to purchase a home.
The experience was great with him. He was very helpful. If we need, for any reason, an agent again...we will contact Russell. He was always there for us to answer all of the questions that we had. And was very patient through the whole process.
Russell was very responsive and knowledgeable. He and his team mate (Pam) were excellent. It was never difficult to get hold of them in the first place. They were attentive and were very cognizant of our needs. I would recommend Russell whole heartedly and wish him the very good.
Russel was very knowable helpful through the sale of my house. He would suggest to me what to do and respect my decision. He sold our house in under two month. His team especially Pam has professional real estate skills are exemplary and her interpersonal skills and empathy are unique in my experience. I highly recommend Russel and will recommend his to any of my friends in the market to buy,sell.
I would describe Russell as very prompt, efficient and professional. Not only is Russell an excellent real estate professional, but he is also supported by a very competent team. He and his team immediately contacted me (during the weekend) when I identified a property that was of interest to me. They maintained a high level of communication throughout the process and during all hours of the day. Russell even called me while he was on vacation outside of the country to check on the progress of the transaction. Russell and his team remained committed to the success of the transaction from beginning to end. I would definitely recommend Russell Mattia and his highly competent team.
Highly recommend Russell Mattia and entire staff based on the high level of service I received. Russell was a pleasure to work with and a true professional. Despite being in the potentially challenging position of representing both the Seller and me as Buyer, his advice was always sound, unbiased and in my interests. I was always impressed by the entire staff's responsiveness and impressive follow-through on all questions I had. Russell Mattia was committed to helping me close in a timely manner. I am certain the transaction was made easier by both Russell and entire staff who went above and beyond the call of duty.
Russell and his team made buying a home incredibly easy. Being out of state buyers, my husband and I relied heavily on Russell (and Pam) to get us through the process. From the first email I sent them, to closing day, they were professional, quick to respond and very knowledgeable. I plan on enjoying my home for a long time but if I needed an agent for any reason I would not hesitate to call Russ.
Russ is patient and listens to the needs of his clients. We worked collaboratively in setting and revising the selling price. He was very responsive to concerns around marketing the property. It's a pleasure to work with Russ and his Remax Team. His assistant Pam helps pull everything together streamlining the entire process.
Russell and his team were fantastic. We had a very small window to look at houses, and they lined up seven for us to see in two hours. Their local knowledge and responsiveness were particularly impressive. We could not have found a better agent to work with and we are thrilled with the results
Russell and his team where highly professional at solving any issues with the sale of our property.Would highly recommend them to all my friends.They where extremely knowledgeable about every phase of the deal.
Russell and his team were wonderful to work with in finding and purchasing our new home in the Poconos. We especially loved working with his assistant Pam who responded immediately to all our emails and always provided us with answers to questions about the area or the property that we ended up purchasing. We would highly recommend Russell Mattia to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Poconos. His team made the process very easy.
Agent and team were very helpful in the sale of my Property' They were knowledgeable with quick needed advice, and helpful hints reference moving and arranging communications between myself and the new owner *list of furnishing available for purchase. The did an out standing job with photo's of the property that sold my house. First person to view, purchased! Russ and his team, were there when needed, with quick responses..Recommend them as your team to sell your property!
Russell and his team were very professional. He made himself available at any time for questions or concerns I had. It was a very positive experience. I would recommend working with Russell.
Both Russ and his assistant Pam were great. From he onset, they stayed in touch and recommended things that would make the sale of our home easier and more saleable. I have dealt with quite a few Real Estate people in the past, but this team of Russ and Pam are the best, by far. They were fast at the gun in responding on my inquiries. They were always available to talk. I would highly recommend this team to any new potential buyer.
Had the pleasure of working with Russell for close to a year. If you know what it is you want, do your homework and get Russ involved as soon as possible, there is a good chance he will seal the deal for you on your dream house. Russ is a local and has seen it all by now. When you go to a showing with him, you also get his expert opinion and invaluable tips and tricks on how to repair, fix, or improve the state of your future property. It's almost as bringing in a fully professional home inspector with you at the same time. Not only that, but Russ's professional network is full of contacts across all fields. If you ever need someone, there is no doubt Russ can connect you with the right people. Both first time home-buyers and experienced buyers/sellers alike should feel very comfortable here. Look forward to working with Russ in the future. Highly Recommended. 10/10. Thanks.
I just sold my house in Arrowhead Lake Community, and Russell with his wonderful assistant Pam were phenomenal throughout the whole process! Russell was extremely knowledgable and helpful during the entire process and made a potentially stressful task, as minimally stressful as possible. Russell and Pam were great at keeping me informed on every step of the way. They were very easy to get in touch with. We have been communicating via phone calls, e-mails and text messages and they were very quick to respond to my questions and address my concerns - no matter what time of day. Russell was particularly helpful in the negotiation process, where his years of experience helped me to determine whether I should counter or accept an offer. I couldn't be happier with my experience with Russell and his team, and would highly recommend him to anyone seeking to buy or sell a home in the Pocono area.
We recently closed on the house in Pocono Area. It was a real pleasure to work with Russell and his office throughout this process. I would highly recommend him. Here is what I have to say about my experience: 1. Responsiveness! Both Russell and his office are very responsive, they respond within minutes/hours (depending on an issue). 2. Timeliness! Russell was always on-time to the meetings that we had with him. As spoiled New Yorkers, we do not like to wait :) So, when Russell was actually earlier, we were extremely happy. 3. Up to the point! Russell didn't try to influence our opinion about houses and gave us space to look at the houses and form our own opinion. All the questions about market value, pluses and minuses were answered very clearly and directly. 4. Knowledge! Russell is very knowledgeable both in real estate and geographic area! 5. Negotiation! Russell was very direct about market value and didn't give us false expectations, yet he was very helpful with price negotiation! I would totally recommend Russell as an agent.
Russell helped us purchase a vacation home in the Poconos and knew exactly which communities would best suit our needs. He is always on time and is very knowledgeable about the market he serves. He and his team work very quickly to help you get to closing without delay.
I have been searching for a home in pa for about 3 months and I did get in touch with many real estate agents but most of them were not helpful to me and refuse to show me any homes unless I have a proof of income even though I was working on it but no one wanted to go one step ahead with me to show me any homes, until I got in touch with Russell Mattia and he showed me a few homes and took me to a different areas and kept in touch with me on a daily bases and explains to me what to do and were to search. Russell Mattia is a great guy with a great team they were very helpful and amazing, always were there when I needed him and always there to answer my questions and help me choose the best for me, until I finally found the right home for me and my family and we closed on the home on may 27, 2016 and we loved the home and looking forward to have a great summer vacation with the whole family, thank you Russell Mattia and Pam and thanks to all your team.
We started looking for a vacation house in the Poconos (mostly Lake Naomi area) in November 2015. We picked Russell because of his online reviews. We have no regrets. Russell was always accommodating and flexible and showed us numerous properties in the area. We never felt pressured or rushed touring with him. We finally closed on the house in May 2016 and are looking forward to enjoying it. His team, Pam and Rose, are superb. Pam was always responsive and very prompt. Quick to answer emails and picks her direct line for any questions or concerns. Great experience. Thank you guys
Russell and Pam's responsiveness was off the charts during a challenging buying process. The owners of the property presented multiple obstacles and the Mattia team was quick to respond to every one. Russell also helped us find this property after we presented him with an in-depth wish list. The property matched and exceeded all of our expectations. If you need someone to find a great property and stand behind you during the entire buying process, you should hire Russell Mattia.
Russell and his team(Pam) were very helpful purchasing our new house.If we had any questions,or concerns they usually replied immediately.The entire procedure was so smooth and fast.Russell also helped us find a great plumber to fix several things in our house.That was our first real estate purchase and they explained everything to us step by step.In the future if we would need any help we`d definitely turn to them.It was a great experience.Thanks again.!!
Russell, was a pleasure to deal with. He took time to go over every property we had seen, was very helpful and easy going. He is very organized and made the buying process easy and enjoyable. His team is very responsive and knowledgeable, and goes above and beyond to ensure that all questions and concerns are addressed in a timely manner.
They were very professional. They kept me informed immediately when there were changes and they were very nice people to talk to. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is purchasing a home.
Russ is an extremely knowledgeable realtor who cares enough to take the time to understand his clients' needs, ensuring he shows properties that fit both your family needs and your budget. He's patient, persistent, trust-worthy and works with a team of persons who are personable and truly care about helping you mitigate any challenges typically associated with closing on a vacation property. We 110% recommend Russell Mattia! Call him--you will not be disappointed. We love our new vacation house and after working with Russ, we feel like we gained a new friend in the area through the process. Thanks Russ and to your entire team! You guys rock.
Russell and team were amazing to work with. Russell was extremely knowledgeable on both the area and the purchase process. The team was very responsive and would always get back to me in a timely manner. In additional to his attention to detail during the process and settlement he followed up after we purchased out home. Was a pleasure to work with Russell has a wealth of experience and I would highly recommend him to others.
From the very beginning of the process to purchase a new home, Russell and his staff (Pam and Rose) were very pleasant, helpful, available and open to any questions or concerns we may have had. The difference between Russell's approach and the approach of the seller's agent was so noticeable that even the seller remarked what a great experience it was having Russell involved in the sale of their home.
I would highly recommend Russell. He was wonderful from beginning to the end and beyond. After the closing, he is still helping me with questions and checking on projects at the house. He is always available when I call. Russell is AWESOME!!! Wonderful staff!
Mr. Mattia was the buyers agent. He is very professional and very approachable. We liked him right away and although he was representing the buyer we always felt he was concerned for all parties. In fact, we received more timely responses to our questions/concerns from him than we did from our listing agent! We highly recommend Russell for your real estate needs.
We really enjoyed working with Russell. He was very low pressure and did not push us to make any decisions. He was helpful in the search process and he and his associates could not have made the process any easier. They were prompt in their responses and never made us wait for any correspondence. We would definitely us this agency again.
Highly recommend! Helped us find the perfect home in an area we didn't know. Responds very quickly to email. Worked very hard for us! Russell and his team went above and beyond to help us find the perfect spot.
Russell was great in every aspect. He showed each home I requested. He was polite, curious and really hands on. He had vast knowledge of the area and after looking for quite a while I was able to find a dream property. He and his team are fantastic They do everything in their power to make sure you feel included in the process from start to finish. I highly recommend Russell and his team. For the best realtor around. Call Russell. You won't be disappointed.
Mr Mattia was very nice and was very interested in my needs. I highly recommend him for your house hunting needs. I was shown properties on many occasions. All with respect and care. Mr Mattia is very knowledgeable of all areas of the Poconos. I highly recommend him and have passed his name on to family and friends. It is like working with a family member. His assistant Pam was also very knowledgeable and just a joy to work with. Again I highly recommend Mr Mattia and his group.
Russell was very knowledgeable and honest with us about purchasing a vacation home in an area we knew nothing about. He also made time for us according to our schedule. Had a really great experience with Russell and made things very easy for us!
Russ and his team were outstanding. Not to sound cliche, but Russ went WAY above and beyond the call of duty to help us secure our new place in the Poconos. On the first day, he showed us what we wanted to see... then, showed us what he thought we would like (never going above our budget)... and he was right! The house he thought we'd like is the one we purchased. He and his team helped us navigate the entire process - including personally supervising a repair that was necessary in order to Close on the property. They offered constructive and accurate advice, prompt responses, helped acclimate us to the area, introduced us to providers and tenaciously kept on top of everything necessary to get to Closing. We have nothing but the highest praise for Russ and his team. Highly recommended.
It was a real pleasure working with Russell. He has a background in photography and was able to take professional pictures for use on his web site as well as the internet listings. He is a consumate professional in every way: he has a great knowledge of the area, property values, and ideas for showing the property. He always provided feedback for each phase of the process. l would highly recommend that anyone interested in buying, selling or renting realestate should call Russell.
Russell is very knowledgable and his team is very responsive. We repeatedly working with them. We always had very positive buying experiences with Russell and will go to him again if we ever need. Thank you Russell team for the great work!
Russell and his team are very professional, helpful and always responded to any question in a timely fashion. Russell was really the reason that we kept looking for the perfect home and didn't give up on the search. His honesty and personal characteristics were outstanding. We got lucky that the first agent we worked with was Russell. Thank you Russell and Pam for your help!
Had a wonderful experience with him. We were about to loose hope in finding a home for our family. But he made it happen. Very courteous and helpful. Called us back in a timely manner and worked with us around our schedule. I'm so pleased to have our first new Home. Thank you for everything.
Russell made buying our new vacation home a pleasure. He was always accessible and quick to respond. He provided lots of tips and guidance as we were not too familiar with the area. I would definitely recommend him to future home buyers. Thanks Russell!
Russell and his team were really great to work with. They were very attentive and answered all of our questions quickly. As a first time home buyer I felt like a was well informed during the whole process.
Russell helped us buy our first vacation home. He was very friendly, helpful, reliable, and knowledgable. He was always there to answer our questions and when he didn't know the answer he went out of his way to find one. He provided us with great guidance and we definitely recommend him for future home seekers. Thanks for all of your help!
We are very happy to worked with Russell and his team there are professional and responsible, we bought our dream home in Pocono Pine Thanks to Russell and Pam, they are very honest and reliable, we would recommend them to friends and family. Thank you very much!
If I could give more than five stars, I would, because Russell Mattia is truly a great real estate agent. As first-time buyers looking for a vacation home in the Poconos and living in Brooklyn, we had selected six properties to view when scheduling visits with Russell. Russell was able to gain access to all the properties within 48 hours. As a long time resident of the Poconos, Russell provided insight and honesty when evaluating the properties, pointing out potential issues and identifying cost analysis on such items. Russell really made the whole experience a lot of fun, more like a tour of the beautiful Pocono mountains with an experienced guide. Once again, Russell was honest and real. And when communicating before the visits, Russell and Pam, who works with Russell, were always responsive and diligent when providing information on the properties.
If you are looking to purchase a property in the Poconos, do yourself a favor and give Russell a call. You will be glad that you did!
Russell and his competent staff were there the entire time to answer questions and help us through the sale process. There is no hesitation on our part to highly recommend Russell for your Real Estate needs.
I have to be honest, I'm sorry to say I've never had the pleasure to meet Russell,or any other member of his wonderful team in person. I can also say, I feel like they're close friends from way back... From the time I sent out a request online he was the quick to respond. They all kept me informed. They did an A-1 job keeping our home in the eyes of potential buyers. They knew it was one of those homes that not everyone would be interested in. The other realtors in the area were just looking for the quick sale. Small lakefront vacation home, with small kitchen, and only two bedrooms. He knew like us, the view of the sunset over the lake was priceless. From the pictures he took, right up to settlement, he knew just what to do. In reality, I miss our conversations...One day I hope to meet him. . So if your looking for a realtor, trust me when I say. Look no further!!
From the first call we knew we had the right agent to sell our home! Russell and his team were absolutely wonderful to deal with. Russell has a very professional and positive attitude, and really set our minds at ease with the process. He kept us up to date with all showings and feedback, and within just a few weeks of listing we were under agreement. He negotiated a deal we were very happy with and has a great support team, can't say enough good things about Pam and how thorough she is with the details and following up to see us right thru to closing. I would HIGHLY recommend Russell to friends and family as a trusted real estate professional that actually gets results!
Ever since we first met Russ, he displayed all acts of professionalism, honesty and integrity! Russ has a great personality, sense of humor and very articulate. He helped us in every way possible, and made the whole process easy and relaxing! Highly recommend his office.
We can’t begin to say enough good things about Russell and team. Not being from the area, we went with Russell based on the positive feedback we had read and they exceeded expectations. He was very knowledgeable and professional. He listened to what we wanted and were looking for, he provided valuable input throughout the process and the response time to all of our questions/concerns throughout the process from Russ/team was nothing short of amazing. If you want an agent who is more of a partner, and not a ‘broker’ trying to sell you a house…we highly recommend Russell. Give him call, you won’t regret it!
We found Russell to be very personable and professional, He was accessible to us at any time to answer any questions or concerns that we had, His staff was amazing and a pleasure to work with. As 1st time home buyers ,Russell and his staff made this an easy and seamless process.We would look to him for any future real estate ventures and we would recommend him highly to our friends and family.
Russell and co. were extremely helpful, knowledgeable and very easy to work with in getting my house sold. He knew the area well, was familiar with all steps of the process and had all the right people to help get things done in a quick and smooth way. Compared to some other experiences I've had Russell and his team made selling my home a very easy and rewarding experience. Thanks!
Russell and his team were wonderful to work with throughout the process of buying our vacation home. We don't live in the area so Russell not only managed to schedule all the homes we wanted to view in one day, but willingly gave up his Sunday (Mother's Day no less) to accommodate our schedule! He is very knowledgeable and down to earth, putting you at ease. Every question and/or concern we had was answered/addressed. Both he and Pam (in his office) were incredibly responsive. Thanks to them, we managed to close on the house only 1 day and 1 month after initially viewing it! Two thumbs up!!
Great experience. Everything went very smoothly and on time. The office kept me informed and updated me about all developments within reasonable time frame. I strongly recommend Mr. Mattia and his staff to represent clients in real estate transactions.
Working with Russ was a pleasure. We were not local to the area and needed to plan day long trips to the area to view homes. Russ was very accommodating and ready at a moments notice. Russ and his team are helpful and prompt responding to emails, calls, and my numerous questions. Finding the home of your dreams is not easy, especially when you have specific requirements, but Russ did it and made it seem effortless. I would recommend him to friends and family any day!
We knew Russ was "the agent" for us from when we first met him. He is a great communicator, friendly, efficient, detail-oriented, and has all the qualities one would want and expect in a realtor. When the going got rough, Russ got tough! We were glad to have him along on our journey to our next life chapter... Additionally, Pam was extremely patient and helpful in emailing, calling, and handling things in the "background," even offering her home for us to stay in when there were closing issues! Russ helped us to both sell our home and purchase our new one, and we would recommend him wholeheartedly!
Russell recently helped us in a real estate transaction. He proved to be a top notch professional and easily changed speed when our buying requirements changed. He is articulate and detail oriented. I would highly recommend working with Russell.
We worked with Russell on a recent real estate transaction and even when we changed our buying requirement he was able to quickly and easily change gears and make the transaction work for us. He is personable, professional and detail oriented. I would highly recommend his servies.
We have worked with Russ in the past and were satisfied with his service and results. Russ was very helpful, responsive and diligent. We look forward to doing work with him again in the future in his region of expertise should we happen upon another property in his area.
Russell and his team were super efficient. The communication about the house was fantastic. Every one of my questions were answered almost instantly at any time! I really couldn't have asked for a better group of people to help me buy my house.
Russ and his assistant Pam are friendly and very responsive. He lives in the area that we were looking so he had good knowledge about requirements, codes, and had resources to local contractors, etc. He was able to provide details about what to expect during the buying process and made everything available electronically. I felt that he could have given us a little more guidance and support on the bidding and settlement of repairs.
I would highly recommend Russell. He worked with us on the purchase of our house in Timber Trails. He made the process run smoothly and stress free, helping us to find our home and complete the purchase within 4 weeks. Russell has good knowledge of the local area and a solid understanding of what represents good value. He is very responsive and was flexible when arranging viewings, enabling us to see a range of properties in a short period of time. Russell gave us good advice when it came to the negotiation. Throughout the process all documents were sent in a timely manor, with advance warning of what information we would need to provide and when. When we discovered that the house we had chosen needed some structural work, Russell introduced us to local contractors who were able to provide us with quotes to help with the negotiation. In addition to all that, Russell is a really nice guy and very easy to work with.
We just bought our second house and Russell is the best! Very helpful with great skills - we had a great experience with Russ and Pam to buy our both houses. They were on top of everything and were able to answer any questions we had during the whole process. Very friendly and wonderful people to deal with. Russ and Pam Thank you for everything!!!
Russell was amazing to work with. This was our first time buying a home and he was very informed, and extremely professional. He made us feel at ease, and made the experience as pleasent and easy as possible. Highly recommend him for your home buying or selling needs!
Russell was awesome! He was so helpful on showing us properties at the drop of a dime and any properties we were not able to see were of no fault of his. He was very informative and knowledgeable of the area and the properties. He was making phone calls left and right trying to make things happen. Russell found the right property for us when we almost lost hope. He was making emails and phone calls 24/7 to help us get the place we really wanted. If you are looking for a mover and shaker, a "go to" guy Russell is your man!! He gets things done, and gets it right!
We are working with Russell Matia to find a house to buy in the Poconos area and find him to be extremely knowledgeable and professional. We also feel that he takes a personal and sincere interest and he is always only a "phone call away" when you have a question, which was important to us because we live in another state. We strongly recommend Mr. Mattias to anyone seeking real estate..
Russell stuck with me in selling this home and was of great help in resolving unusual issues on my behalf due to the distances involved. He went above and beyond in securing services on my behalf and save me a ton of time and grief. I'd highly recommend him to anyone buying in the area.
Russ Mattia did an excellent job at accomodating us because we are from outside the Poconos region and required special scheduling of his time. Russ never hesitated or complained about showing us our requested properties, regardless of how far he had to drive us around the Poconos region. I would highly recommend using his services.
Highly recommend Russell. He worked harder and had more showings in a few weeks than the previous realtor did in 6 months. He did everything he could to sell my house and sold it quickly, at a fair price, and in a challenging market.
I found Russell to be very helpful during the sale of my mom's house. In a period during which the market was doubtful Russell kept in constant communication, patiently kept at showing the house and even stepped in and managed some issues on my behalf due to the distances involved in my personally attending to them in a timely fashion.
All-in-all, I'd highly recommend Russell as a professional who is knowledgeable in the market as well as in the marketing of a home.
It was truly a pleasure in dealing with Russell, and he's earned my thanks many times over.
When I first expressed interest online, Russell was the only Realtor who responded immediately (others took 2-3 days). This attention to detail, caring, follow up on addressing questions, issues, requests, providing information in a timely manner continued until (and even after) settlement day.
Russell and his assistant Pam worked well with us, our mortgage broker, the sellers' agent, our Insurance company and the HOA. They avoided conflict of interest by staying away from interactions with home inspectors etc, highlighting their integrity.
The use of Docusign allowed us to expedite contract and amendment signatures and this made us able to purchase the home in spite of our remote location and extensive work and travel schedules.
We highly recommend Russell and his team!!
Besides being an excellent realtor in his own right, Russell has a team that works behind the scenes that puts him on the top of the list. During our house hunting experience, we found Russell to be very responsive to our constant questioning. We have purchased several homes in several states over the years, and I can say that, without a doubt, working with Russell and his team was our most pleasant homebuying experience.
Helpful in listing my home in a slow market. Able to rent until buyer sold her house. Helpful in resolving issues after I moved. Facilitated closing with power of attorney with my brother in my absence. He is my neighbor and able to watch my house in my absence. Sold house to his mother. Took good photos to show house. Stopped me from making unnecessary improvements to sell since his mother was changing flooring. I have no further comments.
Russ was very quick to respond, both during the search and during the mortgage process. He was flexible with meeting places and times, and gave good advice. We were very happy with his performance.
After being on the market for over a year we listed our home with Russ and sold it in 60 days. Our other agent never advertised the house and did like or no open houses. Russ place ads in key publications that increase our showings and got the job done. Constantly keeping us informed of all showings and did a great job of negotiating the sale. We sold our home for close to asking price and sailed through the closing process with little problems. I highly recommend him and will use Russ in the future on our next sale.
We fpimd Russell to be open, easy to discuss issues with, very aware of the many important aspects of real estate and comes across in a friendly manner. He is patient and quite supportive throughout the process of the real estate transaction.
Russell was extremely helpful, down to earth, and very personable. He always answered his phone when we called and if he was unavailable he would respond immediately. He was very informative and knowlegdable. His team is also to be commended on their responsiveness and being extremely helpful. I would highly recommend Russell Mattia to anyone.
I can't say enough good things about Russell Mattia. He was very attentive and responsive to our home buying needs and was a calming influence when things were a little stressful for us. In the end, he found the house we were looking for, and we can't thank him enough.
If you're looking for an experienced, detailed oriented, and respectful realtor, Russell Mattia is the only one in the business that can provide you with all of this and more. Russell met my real estate needs, he understood what I was looking for in terms of style, neighborhood, and commuting distances. I definitely look forward working with Russell in the future.
Russell was easy to work with and always friendly and available. He provided consistent advertising and excellent pictures of my listing. In a tight market my home was in contract in four months. As a long term resident, Russell is very knowledgeable about and active in the area. He is dedicated to his business, and worked hard to meet my goals. Give him a call to discuss your real estate goals.
