I feel as though I was born and bred into the real estate industry. At a young age, I can remember spending time with my father who began his real estate career in 1974. Spending countless hours as a child listening to the way he conducted his business practices, I realize now that I was being given a gift;  building life skills that would prove to be priceless. 

I started a small business when I was 12 years of age. “A 12 year old with a business?” one might say. Well, at the age of 12 I started cutting a few lawns in the summer. By my last year of high school, I was cutting over 75 lawns in a four day work week and doing odd jobs on weekends. All while playing quarterback at Lorne Park Secondary School and maintaining grades that eventually took me to the University of Toronto.

Selling real estate is a passion of mine. However, my real passion is the people. Clients that eventually become friends, I get to watch their families grow year after year. My approach to selling them a house is more like helping them build a strong foundation where their roots will eventually run deep, in a community that they are passionate about.  

I’m not perfect. That is why I have a perfect team of professionals that surround me. I rely on them and trust their incredible and diverse skill set to help our clientele achieve their long and short-term goals. 

In a real industry that has evolved with the times, it’s as though the mantra, “bigger is better,” seems to be today’s trend. Call me old-fashioned, but I still believe in a high-level of customer one-on-one service that is geared towards our clients' everyday lives. Personal service to each and every client of ours is done through a small team of professionals. We are not about rankings and numbers. We are about getting the job done. Doing so in a way that getting to know our clients on a personal level will help to make their buying or selling experience a memorable one. There is no better feeling then being at the grocery store, at the hockey rink, or even on a walk when a past client comes up to you as a friend and asks how things are. 

I like to say that opportunity is a gift. Opportunities come in many forms. I am reminded every day how blessed I am to live and work in a community that is filled with vibrant people. People from all walks of life, cultures, ethnicities and that share one thing in common, the dream and realization of owning a home is more than bricks and mortar. It’s realizing that they, too, have been given the gift of establishing their roots, raising families and building a community. 

I look forward to the opportunity of one day serving you and your family, and building relationships that stem from client to friend.

Five Questions

What is the best advice you've been given?
The best advice I've been given is to work smart not long. I apply this to my daily, weekly and monthly tasks. The byproduct is more meaningful time with my family and friends.

What is on your bucket list?
My bucket list is always evolving. The one constant is to learn to play the guitar. I have no musical capabilities and am determined to change that.

What is the best gift you've ever received?
The best gift I've ever received was a book. The Bible. It took me 30 years just to open it. After that, everything began to fall in to place.

Glass half full or glass half empty?
The glass is neither half full nor half empty. The glass is always full. The only thing that changes is whether we accept that or not.

What is your favourite time of day?
My favourite time of day is the morning. It sets the tone for the rest of the day. It's a clean slate. It's a time to think. It's a time to be alone and undistracted.

Matthew Regan’s Team has it all.

Barbara and I would like to thank you for all your support and help in listing and selling our house. 

If we were asked by a friend about listing a house we would definitely suggest they list with Matthew Regan. While it may not seem that the listing agent, and his or her team matters, let us tell you...from our experience it does.

Some individuals may need to sell quickly, while others may want to do improvements to maximize their sale but aren’t sure what updating is most appropriate.  We would unconditionally say...trust Matthew!  It is important that your agent understands the value of your home and can present to potential buyers via various venues – such as YouTube; Internet; printed material as well as personal presentations. Matthew Regan’s team has it all. 

Matthew, we found you knowledgeable and professional. Also, as we worked the plan together you gave us wise counsel along the way. With your input and suggestions we made a number of changes and, with your advice, tweaked the plan as we went along to hit our goal. Most importantly, we sold our home in a softening market when other homes for sale were stagnant. 

Dealing with you and The Regan Team was a pleasure.  Although, selling a home can be stressful, your optimistic outlook and bearing, along with your principled approach, was reassuring.  It provided a balanced perspective for us with regard to market changes.

We conclude our message by saying thanks once again to you and your team, for a great job done! 

- Nick & Barbara Sacco

...you sold our home within 1 week for full asking price!

It is a pleasure to write this letter to you and all of the excellent people that you work with!

Thank you so much for your excellent help with the sale of our home! You have been a consummate professional in the handling of this project. From our initial meeting with you for a Market Evaluation in October 2012 to the present.  

You have provided sound ethical advice with respect to pricing and preparation of the home. You gave us very accurate and helpful information for the preparation week prior to listing, for the photo shoot, the property measurement process, and the format for the listing and home visits.

Your marketing suggestions were excellent and brought amazing results - you sold our home within 1 week for full asking price!!

I have appreciated your excellent, clear communication style, your speed in returning calls and your willingness to answer any questions thoughtfully. I especially appreciated your willingness to get information that was needed if you did not have it at your fingertips.

Beyond your own excellent abilities, you have provided access to other professional services needed, i.e. home inspection services, movers, lawyers, and all have been top-notch. Your support staff have given skillful, professional, prompt help for all details.

Matthew, I/we want to wish you all the best as your career grows, and I would highly recommend you to anyone selling or buying a home!

- Dr. Deborah Digges and Dr. John Gapski

We really appreciated your energy, expertise, responsiveness and sound advice...

Dear Matthew,

We wanted to extend a sincere thank you for the outstanding job you did selling our home at 1683 Howat Crescent. In selecting an agent, we were looking for someone with a strong track record, deep market knowledge and extensive experience in the Lorne Park area.  We also wanted a dedicated professional who was committed to working hard to ensure our objectives were met.  Needless to say, you and your team exceeded our expectations.  We really appreciated your energy, expertise, responsiveness and sound advice and counsel through all aspects of the sales process. It was truly a pleasure to work with you and we would not hesitate to recommend you and the team.  All the best for continued success. 

- Denise and Bruce

Matthew came in with a fresh approach and advice we could count on.

My husband and I had previously tried selling our home with another company, without success.  Matthew came in with a fresh approach and advice we thought we could count on.  While out of the country, Matthew successfully orchestrated the sale of our home. We were extremely pleased and have told friends that this was the most pleasant sale we've ever had. You made it easy for us and so much less stressful than others have been, especially being away.

- Linda and Stephen

You were always there to respond to our smallest enquiries...

Matthew,

Cathy and I wanted to drop you a short note to tell you how pleased we were with the services provided by The Regan Team and specifically, by you, during the recent sale of our home in Mississauga. We consistently were impressed and reassured by your ongoing availability and your sound advice regarding all aspects of the transaction, particularly the negotiations with the purchaser's agent. You were always there to respond to our smallest enquiries and provided reassuring assistance at all phases of the sales process. The brochure that you prepared was most impressive and never failed to have a significantly positive impact on all the people that we showed it to. We would not hesitate to wholeheartedly refer and recommend you to anyone in the market for real estate services. Thank you again for shepherding us through the transaction.

- Cathy & Tony

...great energy and enthusiasm with thorough and proactive professionalism.

I really enjoyed working with Matthew in my recent downsizing process.  He combines great energy and enthusiasm with thorough and proactive professionalism.  It's not easy to leave a home you've been happy in for 30 years and Matthew understood that, so he was patient with me but also, because of his extensive knowledge and experience, was able to provide the guidance required to make the transition comfortable. I appreciated that Matthew listened to me and grasped very quickly what would be important to me in my next home, and he found the perfect place for us with a minimum of difficulty on our side.  It was truly a pleasure to work with Matthew who was consistently courteous and responsive.  He clearly enjoys his job and that is reflected in the excellence with which he does it.

- Lee

...highly professional stance throughout a stressful campaign.

Regan Team,

Liz and I were extremely impressed by, and grateful for, your involvement in helping us close the sale of our home. We were appreciative of your highly professional stance throughout a stressful campaign.  The staging service you provided, together with the brochure and web presence that The Regan Team created were excellent sales tools.  Congratulations to all involved!

- Tony and Liz

I can see this is a passion for you, not just another day at the office.

Dear Matthew,

I’m sorry it has taken me so long to send you this note, but I would like to take the time to say an enormous thank you for all your help in getting my house on the market, as well as giving me this proper information for pricing and selling.

My family and I were so impressed with your professionalism and knowledge. I can see this is a passion for you, not just another day at the office. It didn’t matter what questions or issues I encountered regarding the house, you were always there or called me back immediately with the answers I needed. It never seemed that you were too busy or my questions too irrelevant to deal with. You have also surrounded yourself with fabulous staff. Tammy was a great assistance and her wonderful personality was a joy to be around.

Matthew I wish you much success today and throughout the coming years. I know you will be well because of the nature of your personality and knowledge of your business that can only continue to keep you at the top of your class! I have already recommended you to several people and will tell as many people as I can when the opportunity arises.

In closing, I once again thank you for your kindness and especially your thoughtfulness in dealing with my house and making it all possible. Without you, it would not have done as smoothly and may not have even happened at all.

- Elfrieda Betsch

Here's what the Robertson's think...

Matthew, 

Thank you again for the outstanding job you and your team did on selling our Rose Court home. As a sales professional myself, I had some trepidation about your team's ability to best represent our property and frankly, the amount of commission they would be earning for their efforts. 

I am happy to tell you that your group has exceeded our expectations and the commission earned is well deserved! You team was always punctual; reliable; professional and courteous. The quality of the brochure and ads your team put together was first rate. Not once did you or your team hesitate to answer any questions or try out a new strategy we proposed. 

On a personal level, I had the opportunity to watch you in action and couldn't have been more impressed with your skills. You engage the prospect, put them at ease and create a communicative environment with them. Your personal style and enthusiasm for the business is contagious to whomever you speak. 

Finally, as you know, I can be a rigid negotiator. You masterfully managed me, the buyer and the other agent to a successful conclusion...well done. The end result was 97% of our asking price and a new high in our neighbourhood! 

I won't hesitate to recommend The Regan Team to other prospective buyers/sellers. Please feel comfortable having any potential sellers contact me directly to ask any questions about the process and experience we had with your team. 

- Earl Robertson
