Testimonials from Matt's Clients
I can’t tell you how glad I am that I hired Matt Epstein to sell my house. He had great ideas as far as staging goes and what targeted improvements would have the most impact. He was always available to speak to me and he came through on advertising, maximizing realtor and buyer presence at the open houses. We only needed two, funny enough, as my house sold in 10 days for asking price. If you’re looking for a smart and extraordinarily knowledgeable realtor who only sells homes, and is an total expert as such, Matt is your guy.
It has been a great pleasure to work with Matt Epstein on our Real Estate ventures!
We initially chose Matt to represent us for our private home, because of his outstanding track
record in our area for professionalism and effectiveness. He first represented us as a rental/
leasing agent and a few years later as the Selling Agent for the same house.
During an 18 month period where we rented our house, Matt and his team made the process
very easy for us, and gave us a peace of mind while we were out of country, that our home was
in good hands. Then, when it came time to sell, Matt garnered multiple offers immediately, and within 2 weeks we had a buyer, an amazing turnaround.
We wish we had Matt and his team at our new location!

My real estate transaction with Matt Epstein was quick and painless which is hard to say in this competitive market. I was a first time buyer and obviously nervous at the prospect of buying my first home. Matt's lovely buyers agent Jane took me out to see many condos and we found the perfect one on the very first day! Matt and Jane encouraged me to act quickly given the sellers market. I made an offer bellow asking and it was accepted within 2 days. Matt was able to help me negotiate 2 separate buyers credits during escrow further reducing the price. I have been watching the prices and market since and I am 100% satisfied with the home I purchased and the amazing deal Matt helped me to get. You cannot beat the kind of experience and connections Matt has. Perk alert: He even let me use his moving truck for free when it was time to move in. Now that's service!

To Whom It May Concern
We had the pleasure of working with Matt Epstein and his Team, both for the sale of our house and for the purchase of another residence for us during a period of 6 months during 2016.
The entire process of working with Matt, from our first meeting to the final transaction, was entirely smooth and extremely personable. We could reach Matt anytime and he kept us informed on every critical detail in a prompt and courteous manner. Furthermore, he was simply outstanding in the negotiating process to help us get the best value and get us what we really were looking for in light of the changing market dynamics!
He dealt with all of the related processes, staging ideas for the house, setting up Open Houses, advertising, inspection management, loan approvals, etc. And he is hands-on! We would use him again and again!

We first met Matt 15 years ago when he pulled out all stops to find my parents, who were downsizing, the perfect condo. When it came time to sell the condo last year and move my widowed mother to assisted living, it was natural to contact Matt for assistance. As in the past, he and his team worked diligently on our behalf, including weekly open houses, ongoing advertising in multiple mediums and providing excellent advice on appropriately pricing the condo for the current market while still allowing us to achieve the best deal possible. I would highly recommend Matt to anyone thinking of purchasing or selling a property. He is the best!
I had my house on the market for months without one offer with a real estate agent who did not have the knowledge or connections of Matt-within a month of listing with Matt he sold my home and helped us buy our dream home. I wouldn't ever use anyone else!
“When we put our parent’s home on the market, it was a very emotional time for us. Matt listened to our needs, he gave us good guidance, and he was full service. Everyone he recommended—from the house cleaning crew to the inspector—were courteous and professional. And Matt’s confidence and good mood made the whole showing and selling process painless and productive. I have since recommended him to other friends, and they, too, are pleased with his service.”
Thank you for making such a stressful time in our lives so easy.
We were so worried about buying and selling a house at the same time but you did all the work for us on both. Getting us multiple offers on our house on the first day was amazing. You knew exactly how to show the house and price it.
I would recommend you to anyone and everyone in our lives. You never got tired of our questions and you always had the answers. I wish we had a Matt Epstein for everything in our lives. Thank you for being you.

We had the good fortune of having Matt & his team represent us as our broker both on selling our house and buying our new house over 2015/2016. Everything went seamlessly . He is not only a top professional who knows the market but also always reachable and compassionate. Would recommend him without hesitation.

To Whom It May Concern:
I have recently sold my house and downsized to a lovely Westside condo.
As with numerous real estate transactions in the past, I was represented by Matt Epstein. He’s so experienced and knowledgeable, I worried a lot less than I would have, if left to my own devices!
Even though he’s a top National and LA realtor, Matt is never too busy to answer questions and offer the best advice. He was available to me within minutes seven days a week.
My most recent move could have been very stressful, since I bought before I sold, but Matt got my condo for me at a very fair price, and managed to create multiple offers on the house I sold.
Another tip: use the inspector Matt recommends when you buy your house—the man is thorough and will save you time and money.
After at least 6 real estate deals with Matt as my guide, I can honestly give him the highest recommendation possible. Los Angeles real estate is a tough, complicated and an expensive business. It is best to have The Best on your side!
To Whom It May Concern:
Matt Epstein did an excellent job re selling a house for me and my brother. Matt is the consummate professional as well as caring and responsive. He answered each phone call and email promptly and was pro active in every phase of the sale. I highly recommend him.
I've known Matt Epstein for over 20 years. He's represented me in real estate transactions as a buyer and as a seller. He was even my landlord for awhile. He's also become my friend.
Matt has always been straightforward, focused and knowledgeable. I can't imagine that anyone knows Sherman Oaks and the environs better than him. And, he's fun to be around.
In our real estate transactions, Matt got me a great deal when I bought my house and a great deal when I sold the same house 15 years later. He listens and he communicates; honestly, fairly and with real attention to what is important to the client.
With his team of Greg and the lovely and wonderful Jane(!), I can confidently say that you could never do better than having the Powerhouse Partners represent your real estate transactions in the valley. I wish he could have been with me for my new house but he hasn't expanded to Palm Springs .....yet.
Over the course of many years, I listed two residences with Matt Epstein because I was relocating. Each time I was very pleased with how the transactions went.
Not only is Matt a good salesman, who knows how to close a deal, he is an all around good guy. He is very patient, compassionate and knowledgeable. When I listed my second home around three years ago, after a few months on the market, I decided not to sell. Matt did not try to convince me otherwise and couldn't have been nicer about it. He actually told me that when I am ready, I will list it. Obviously I wasn't ready and more importantly, he never tried to convince meotherwise. When the time came for me to list it again, I naturally called Matt and my home sold in 24 hours!
It was always a pleasure doing business with Matt.

I wanted to thank you for all you did for us when you recently sold our home of 19 years. It was great to have you guide us through the process and help us achieve top dollar. Your knowledge of the local market was so valuable to us and you made this process very enjoyable. I can’t imagine going through this without your help!
Thanks again! Tom & Sybelle S
I have known Matt Epstein for years and I've completed several transactions with him. Matt always shows up ready to play. He's extremely professional, knowledgeable, honest, hardworking, and insightful. His level of experience in the Sherman Oaks / Studio City areas is unmatched, and he is very active in the community not only as a realtor but also as a contributor to many important causes. It's always fun working with Matt. He truly enjoys what he does and it shows. I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone looking to buy or sell.

As you may have heard or experienced, selling or purchasing a house can be quite stressful. It’s somewhat complicated, and we can’t imagine trying to do a real estate transaction without an agent. We also can’t imagine doing it without Matt Epstein. From the first moment we met Matt we felt like we were in the company of an experienced and extremely capable professional. And those impressions proved to be 100% correct. From Matt’s assessment of the value of our home, to creating a strategy to sell our house, and his handling of the negotiations once we accepted an offer could not have worked out better for us. And, regarding the negotiations, you really want Matt on your side of table and not the other way around. Matt was always available to answer any questions or concerns that came up, or one of his top notch staff members would get back to us in a very timely manner with the answers we needed or the guidance to take the next indicated action. Of course, all of this coincided with us trying to purchase a new home in another county. Matt worked with our agent up there and they coordinated the entire thing, which, frankly, helped reduce our growing anxiety as crucial deadlines would pop up during the process.
We can say with all sincerity that we made one of the best decisions of our lives by choosing to work with Matt Epstein once we decided to make this major change in our lives. We encourage you to do the same. Trust us, you won’t be disappointed.
Best of luck, Heather and Michael H
"Matt Epstein was such a joy to work with. He is extremely knowledgeable about the buying process and all the nuances associated with inspections and escrow that go along with it. Matt's relationships with other vendors for insurance, escrow, inspections etc. are phenomenal and really helped simplify an otherwise daunting experience. His team is very organized, efficient and and personable. Matt Epstein makes you feel like you are his only client and has the answer to all of your questions. If you want the best, look no further than Matt Epstein."

Last summer when my husband and I decided to sell our home, we interviewed several real estate agents that had been recommended to us. We decided on Matt Epstein and he absolutely delivered everything he promised. He was always available to to answer any question I had during the entire process, he gave us great advise about how to properly
stage our home to maximize our "open house" responses and he was a tough negotiator for us. All in all, it was an easy, painless process, mostly as a result of Mattes vast experience and professionalism. I highly recommend him.

I have lived in Sherman Oaks for over 30 years. I am in the real estate business developing and owning numerous office buildings and apartment buildings along Ventura blvd. for 35 years. I decided it was time to change my residence to fit my life style. I have dealt with Real Estate Professionals for 35 years.
With that said, I hired a firm that had sold a house on my street. Since the street is unique, I thought this was a good move. I wasted 6 months listing my house for what turned out to be $500,000 more than reality. It was great having it listed for that high amount but never a deal. When the listing was up, I did what I should have done from the beginning. I called Matt who I've have known of for decades. He came to my house and assessed the situation. He asked me? Do you want to sell or just play the market.
I responded of course I want to sell but for the right price. He happened to have the listing on the replacement house. To make a long story short, I listed the house and the next day he had an open house and had multiple offers. After the weekend, we chose the offer I wanted to accept and he made the other house purchase work through a complication of tax and legal issues. I highly recommend Matt Epstein.
"He is it" the of your dreams is an understatement. He made my dream come through. Call him.- Dennis G.
