Matthew DeClair - Licensed Real Estate Associate Broker
Associate Real Estate Broker
When you have questions about the local housing market, it can be difficult to know where to turn for reliable counsel and a Realtor you can trust and depend on. Furthermore, when the time comes for you to buy or sell your home, it can be a challenging experience, as there are many considerations. However, the single most important decision to make is which agent you select to work on your behalf and represent your interests. The importance of this decision cannot be overstated because not all agents are alike. But how can you tell one agent from another? The best way is to learn all you can about the agent, their company, their experience, and what they stand for. History has proven that the people who have the greatest success are typically those who “do their homework” before selecting their agent. The fact that you’re reading this now shows that you appreciate the importance of this decision and is proof that you have set yourself on the smart path to success.
People First - I believe wholeheartedly in the unique, personal nature of real estate. It's not just about selling homes, more importantly it's about YOU. I understand that the sale of a home has a direct effect on the lives of people and their families. For many, our home is where we spend much of our time; it's where our families are raised and memories are made. Buying or selling a home is not only a major financial decision, but there are many important considerations which can prove to be an emotional and exhausting experience. That's why it's important to me to learn your concerns, understand your needs, and then work to achieve your goals. One of the great joys I have in my work is solving problems and helping people; after all, that's what selling real estate is truly all about. In my career I have accumulated a treasure chest of information that has helped my clients realize their real estate goals and it would be my pleasure to share that with you.
Specialties - The residential market is my primary field. However, I enjoy working in all areas of real estate and have sold many types and classifications of property, including: Single Family to Multi Family, Residential to Commercial, Vacant Land to Estates.
Areas Served - Dutchess County is my principal service area. Although, over the course of my career I’ve sold real estate in 7 Counties throughout the Hudson Valley region, including: Dutchess - Putnam - Westchester - Ulster - Orange - Greene - Columbia
Neighborhood Specialist - As your full time, full service Realtor, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone who knows the area and the local market, inside and out! As a lifelong resident and an agent that works day to day in the local communities, I’ve sold real estate in just about every Town, City, Village, and Hamlet throughout the Dutchess County area.
Experience Matters - Todays housing market is competitive, challenging, and constantly changing. The areas affecting real estate are increasingly more complex; including: the mortgage industry, attorney procedures, appraisals, home inspections, environmental regulations, the financing process, added legal requirements, and much more…but not to worry, I’m here to help! The complicated nature of real estate sales requires a leading real estate company and a strong, dynamic Realtor to get the job done. My systems are thorough, aggressive and proven successful. The counsel I provide to my clients is sound and my commitment to helping you achieve your real estate goals is without compromise. I can promise, you will be impressed!
My Pledge - Being a Realtor is something that I take very seriously. People entrust me to help them with one of the most significant investments and life changing choices they will ever make in their lifetime. As your Realtor, I am committed to protecting your interests and serving your needs. I work throughout the day, during the night, and over the weekends to ensure that those needs are met. I pledge to perform to the best of my abilities and strive to provide you with superior service. To me, that means treating you and your goals as my very own. It’s my desire to not only deliver results, it’s also about ensuring that you have the most pleasant experience throughout the entire process.
