What do Matt's customers say?
"Matt Canina was contracted to sell our Beachside condo this Spring. He brought potential buyers to our home who were serious and motivated to buy. His professional preparation and knowledge base was so far beyond any other Realtor we ever met that we sold at our asking price within a matter of weeks. We also at the same time were building a new home in Viera. Matt oversaw relations with sales and construction staff such that building and closing was completed without one problem."
"Having experienced many sales people in my career as well as numerous real-estate agents, I can say with confidence and conviction that Matt Canina stands out with his excellence and execution of the purchase process and knowledge of the housing market. In fact, if it were not for Matt, we most likely would not have found the perfect home. Absolutely no regrets in working with Matt, a real pro. I would highly recommend him to anyone!"
"Prior to putting the property on the market, Matt gave us a price and timeframe estimate for selling it. We put it on the the market and he was true to his word. It sold quickly, and near the price asked. He also assisted with removal of furniture, and many other details, as it was an estate and we lived out of state. He was available to us when we were there in person, and when we were on the phone. It was a pleasure to work with Matt."
