I chose to work with Matt Sevenau because of his reputation and tremendous knowledge about the local market. He helped me through an incredibly complex process of selling a home I had lived in for 20 years and deeply loved. His warmth and professionalism gave me great comfort. No matter how crazy or simple my questions were and no matter the topic - staging, inspections, mountains of paperwork, negotiation with potential buyers - he answered them with grace and thoughtfulness. Thanks to Matt, my house sold for a price I wanted and it went to two lovely people who will make it their home. I will be forever grateful.

We value your high level of strategic thinking and attention to detail in addition to the ongoing communication you provide. Your skill at bringing these assets to the table has always given us the security of knowing what the plan is and how we are progressing towards the final goal.

My wife and I have purchased fifteen houses/properties over the past few decades despite having lived overseas where we could not purchase for nearly a decade. This has been the easiest and most hassle-free of any property we have purchased, nearly all of which were comparable cash deals. We appreciate your help, your hands-on expertise and assurance of the details. You worked diligently to expedite the handling of paperwork, the scheduling and arrangement of viewings and inspections, and were present for all of the critical steps leading to final sales and purchase. You know the markets, work to understand the properties and client interests, and have been responsive to all of our inquiries. Thank you for making this an easy transaction.
Thank you so much for helping me. Here’s how you made it not only possible but special and mostly pleasurable: Patience, Optimism, Fun, Flexibility, Strategic thinking and guidance, Thoughtfulness, Diligence.

We are ecstatic with how Matt managed the sale of our home. Being in Napa, we had reservations with regards to hiring a Sonoma agent, however, Matt was an absolute professional and quickly alleviated or fears. He was well informed about our market, he accurately priced our home, and he facilitated the entire process so well that we never worried about the outcome. We feel confident in referring Matt to anyone in the market for selling or buying a home in the Bay Area!

I have bought and sold at least 10 homes, and I have never worked with a real estate agent as perfect as Maurice. He provided service above and beyond my expectations. Even after the sale was complete he continued to be helpful with finding people to work with me on my home. I would use Maurice as my real estate agent again without question and I would recommend him with the highest compliments.

We looked for the perfect home in Sonoma County for about 2 years and had the good fortune of working with Matt Sevenau during this time. We were not easy clients - we were very particular (picky) about the size of the home and the lot it sat on. We also had specific preferences about the utilities available, location, and the surrounding area, including road noise. Matt paid great attention to all of our conditions and patiently selected properties that met those conditions, showing us dozens of properties over a 2 year period. Matt never got discouraged and was a delight to work with - always positive and pleasant. Matt's knowledge of the Sonoma area was impressive and a great help during our search and subsequent purchase. Thanks to him, we finally found our perfect home and moved in late July. Overall, Matt was attentive, professional, responsive and most of all a pleasure to work with - we highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or sell a piece of property.

You coached us to prepare the home for sale and set the right price. Your communication was unmatched, as we always knew what was going on and what the next step would be. You stayed with us all the way through the close of escrow to provide daily updates or just plain moral support.

I have had the pleasure of working with Matt and have a great deal of respect for his attention to detail. He also possesses a keen ability to discern the key aspects of a deal and how they support his client's interests. I have often turned to Matt for his opinion on the investment potential of specific properties in our marketplace. As a retired CPA I can appreciate his intuitive and nuanced observations about a property's potential. However, he always brings the discussion back to the relevant issues that make the analysis insightful. The main attribute Matt possesses which makes for an effective agent is his diligence in making sure deadlines are met and his client's risk is mitigated.
There are so many details involved with a home purchase -- from inspections to financing. Maurice kept things organized and kept us informed and organized throughout that process. That took a lot of the pressure and worry off of us.
— Mary and Peter Klabunde
Thanks and congrats to you too. I've never worked with a real estate agent who takes their job more seriously, puts in as much time and effort to meet client needs, and then goes beyond the call of duty to exceed client expectations. You have a rare gift and you use it well to pursue excellence in all that you do. If you ever need a client recommendation, remember me.

Maurice was a consummate professional throughout the entire process. The representation of my property was of the highest caliber at all times. Complete and proactive, courteous and thoughtful are some of the adjectives used to describe Maurice’s services.
— Kirby Lee
Matt treated us like family – always with our best interest at the forefront. His honesty and integrity gave us confidence that we would be well represented throughout the process. In addition, his knowledge of the Sonoma real estate market and vast experience in remodeling and design helped us make the right decision to purchase a solid home that merely needed cosmetic upgrades. We got a great deal with his help! And aside from making sure we found a house we would love forever, he was able to provide reliable contacts for our home improvement projects and needs. We would absolutely recommend Matt to anyone buying or selling a home in Sonoma’s wine country!
