Merritt island, FL 32953
I was a Firefighter-EMT for 14 years until I retired and have been a Realtor since 2007. I know how to work hard and work with a team to get things done. I am an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge, education and expertise about buying and selling real estate. I have a wealth of knowledge about building construction and building codes to assist with my clients. I work with a team in order to serve my clients better. Our Team has sold over $100 Million in Real Estate and one of our Team members have written two books. Another team member has won the Apprentice tv show and was a host of My House is worth What on HGTV. I and another Team member have been on House hunters and My House is worth what as a Guest Realtor as well. We all work together to accomplish the tasks and always do a job well done! It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You want someone who knows this area inside and out! I will work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home.
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you want Realtor who will use the latest technology and best practices to advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything for you, from start to close with the knowledge, experience and precision that is expected.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience with staging techniques - which can help you get top dollar. Staging a home typically brings about 10% more more money that not staging at all. I can help you to see if making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast. A home that sells fast is always the goal and I do my best to make that happen!
Here are some Testimonials from past Clients:
When I first started my search for the perfect Merritt Island home, Matthew answered my email! We had no one to recommend an agent and I feel very fortunate that we found him. If you want an agent with local expertise Matthew is the one! While he showed us countless homes in the browsing stage of our search, he helped us to decide what area of Merritt Island would best suit our needs. He was always patient and understanding even when we changed our minds numerous times. When we finally did find the one, he kept us informed through every step of the process. Matthew offered us his expert advice and hung in there through the purchase process when things did not go as planned with the sale of our home. We found a great agent, and a friend!

October 2014 – In 2014 we were looking to buy a vacation home in the Cocoa Beach area. I do not remember how we found Matthew, but we did. He listened to what we wanted in a vacation home and gave use great guidance in choosing an area and home. The purchase went very smoothly and we loved our place. In 2014 without any kids at home we decided to sell our home. We contacted Matthew and he still remembered us. The market was slow but again Matthew guided us on price and presentation. After 1 week on the market we had an offer and 30 days later escrow closed. Smooth as silk. If you are looking for personal attention from a realtor who knows the market and will work for you Matthew is your guy. You will be happy.

Matthew Stebbins’ attention to details and impeccable taste complimented her professionalism and patience as we searched for our ideal luxury home. Being new to the area, he expertly navigated us through the community and went out of his way to ensure our comfort and happiness.
While visiting open homes in Merritt island, we entered a beautiful home with the fresh scent of home baked cookies. A friendly greeting ensued and although the home wasn’t ideal for our needs, the handsome man baking the cookies certainly was. Matthew’s enthusiasm for his profession exudes in all of his actions. Within moments of closing the Open House, Matthew hopped in the car and began showing us homes that met our requirements. We couldn’t be happier with Matthew’s professionalism and friendship – he’s one in a million!
We wanted to send you a heart felt thank you! You were the only agent who enthusiastically took on our dream of finding a home in Cocoa. Our friends and other realtors told us we were never going to find a home in our price range, let alone a single family home in Cocoa. I knew that the only way we would have a chance in this crazy market was to find someone who was connected to Cocoa and had a history of closing off-market listings. We never worried because of your attention to detail and the wonderful people you connected us with from inspectors, title insurance, and mortgage brokers. Everyone was professional, efficient, and thoroughly enjoyable to work with.
What could have been a very stressful time between a new job, new home, and jury duty developed into a story for the books. When I called my husband from court to discuss my distress about about my last minute jury duty notice conflicting with closing, he warned that there was nothing that could be done. I replied that Matthew will get everything taken care of and voila, we signed the paper work and the bank funded the loan the next day.
Your optimism, professionalism, and planning made the difference between finding our dream home and settling.

"We had a daunting task ahead of us: to sell our home of more than 30 years and to move clear across the country to California. However, choosing a realtor proved no harder than looking at the homes that had been sold in our neighborhood . . . and finding Matthew Stebbins of My House realty. Our home was expertly photographed, advertised, and marketed in a most timely manner, with all the appropriate paperwork completed. We closed escrow nine weeks from the date of the first Brokers' Open. "We couldn't have trusted this huge task to anyone more suited to the job than Matthew. His negotiating skills, knowledge of the local market and intricacies of the real estate world, coupled with his efficiency, good humor, and capable staff, have been a high point in our lives."
