“I could not speak more highly of Matt Hurd. Matt sold my Merivale home of 20+ years and after a two week deadline he brought me several offers. He was professional, hard working and thorough and, from the time I signed up it, was clear that Matt was determined to get me the best price. He kept me updated daily and instilled confidence in me at a time which could have been quite stressful. I have history in the industry and close ties to several salespeople but Matt and Total Realty were the obvious choice. I also saved over $35,000 in fees and avoided the stress of an auction. I unreservedly recommend Matt Hurd for results and exemplary customer service.”

H Birnie

B & T Forrester

“Matt was really helpful in explaining things and also recommending Lawyer etc. We appreciate the time and effort he put in with us and our prospective buyers. He listened to us and kept us informed every step of the way. We have been pleasantly surprised at how relatively stress free and smooth the whole process was, and as we hadn't been in the market for 18 years, we had been a little concerned about how things would go.”

G & K Roulston

16 Nov 2020

“Matt was cool, calm and collected we appreciated his advice that was honest and genuine & nothing was a problem. Matt was very easy to contact and was super organized getting back to us on all occasions he set realistic time frames and let us know his thoughts on anything that was to arise over this time. Matt was a straight shooter exactly how we are and we appreciated this as nothing was sugar coated, he was respectful, reflective and took any feedback on board.

M Forbes

“We had previously bought a property Matt had listed. Excellent, honest and transparent service then and again now as we sell this property. Excellent advice and communication with nothing sugar-coated. Honest appraisal and clear strategy to attract genuine buyers. Generated confidence and optimism in what I wrongly anticipated would be a disaster given the Pandemic impact.”

As I said Matt was there all the way and never a bother to him if a had a question for him. He worked hard for me to sell the house quickly and I was grateful for that.”

P Perkins

11 Feb 2020

He was honest about what we needed to do to make the house look as good as it could, and was great about organising access for anyone that needed it. We had an offer two days after the first open home which we were very happy to accept! We would highly recommend Matt and would be very happy to use him again.”

K & P Mcinnes

9 Dec 2018

“Matt has been great right from our initial meeting and letting us know his honest opinion what we should do to prepare the house for sale. He has maintained excellent communication, always letting us know what was going on. He also helped us with organising to get some unfinished EQC work done - meeting the builder to get a quote and then again meeting the builder to get the work done. This was much appreciated and made life so much easier for us. The whole experience has been made easy with Total Realty.”

E Warnock

5 Dec 2018

“We originally met Matt at the start of 2018 when he came round for an appraisal, we were really impressed with his knowledge and approachable nature. Later in the year my husband and I made the big decision to move to Australia once over here we decided not to rent but to sell, so selling a property when based overseas was a scary thought, we contacted Matt and he was more then happy to help, it has been a stressful experience at times, but Matt went above and beyond to help reduce that stress for us and we will highly recommend him to any of our friends or family in Christchurch.”

M Ham & S Asher

28 Oct 2018

E Crump, O Crump & H Webber

Ria Smith

21 Sep 2017

“We previously had our property on the market with a different agency who seemed to lose interest as time went on which made us get very discouraged, once their time was up we decided to call Matt to market our property. Matt came around and instantly we noticed the professional difference. We filled out all the forms required straight away, So Matt had all the information on hand (this had not happened with our other real estate agent) and we were very impressed. Matt's attitude and positive energy made us get excited about selling our house again and gave us hope. Matt did his first open home and got two offers straight away, we couldn't believe it after having a month of nobody coming to them we were gobsmacked. One open home with Matt is all it took to sell our home. We only wish we had not been talked into going with another agent who wasted our money and time and went with Matt from the start. I can not thank Matt enough and recommend him to anyone selling their home.”

Michael Hollis & Bridget Hooper

1 Sep 2017

“This was my first house sale and I was very happy with Total Realty, Matt went out of his way to make it as easy as possible even though there were some complexities due to EQC etc. I felt like I could ask any questions and the communication I got was always very prompt and polite. Basically it was much less stressful than I expected and I got the result I wanted, what's not to like!”

We highly recommend Matt and Total Realty to anyone...and are happy to talk to anyone about how great Total Realty, and Matt are! Thank you so much!!”

“As first home sellers, we were at a loss as to what to do and where to start. After Matt was recommended to us, he came and visited us at home and explained the whole process to us from start to finish. He was very informative, friendly and professional. He was supportive with all our questions and requests. I don't believe we would have had the same amount of interest in our house, nor would it have sold so quickly without Matt fronting the sale. He is an asset to Total Realty.”
