Hi, I’m Matt Dolan, an award-winning REALTOR® who has been securing successful results for my clients across the Lower Mainland for over a decade. Real estate is second nature to me. I was an electrician for 14 years and worked on numerous large-scale home development construction sites across the Lower Mainland, for top developers such as Onni, Polygon, and Bosa. I received my Journeyman’s Red Seal Electrician ticket in 2007 from BCIT and left to work in Canada’s Mining Industry in 2008. Upon returning to the Lower Mainland, I bought, renovated and sold homes for a number of years, something that I genuinely enjoyed and gained a wealth of practical wisdom from. The sum total of these experiences inspired me to get my real estate license. Clients appreciate my fair and honest approach to buying and selling real estate. They also trust that I really know my stuff when it comes to home construction and maintenance. I have a ton of practical knowledge about the industry and an undeniable passion that comes from years of experience. I care about adding value to your experience, so I work hard for your interests and provide extras that the competition does not, saving you thousands of dollars (when selling your home). For potential clients, I have one ask: interview me to see if I’d be a good fit for your needs. I’m happy to set up a no-hassle consultation.
Matt was so professional and very responsive - any call, text or email got an immediate response every step of the way. All of his advice was excellent and anyone recommended (staging company, lawyer) has been of a very high standard. By following his advice, the condo sold faster and at a much higher price than anticipated. He is down to earth, straightforward, and very kind. He made the entire process so easy and even enjoyable! I could not imagine a better real estate agent; I highly recommend him. - Georgina Matthews
Reply: Thanks Georgina! The staging turned out great! Our Open house was a huge success handing out cakes and drinks to potential buyers and walking them through the home, and it was great to have multiple offers come in at the finish line. Cheers and thanks for the kind words!
Wow, just wow. The condo is everything I wanted. Matt was right on top of everything, answered all my questions promptly when I asked. Negotiated a fabulous deal for me and I now am going to be living the dream in my preferred neighbourhood! Highly, highly, highly recommend. Did I mention highly recommend? Don't even hesitate to go with Matt as your realtor. - Janice white
Reply: Thanks Jan!!! I think you have become my best client, constantly returning! Your condo purchase was a great choice and it was fun representing you... again! Cheers
Matt made selling my home a breeze, it was so much easier then I had anticipated. His recommendations for staging helped me so much! he ensured there was a steady flow of potential buyers. With his constant communication and honest opinions I always felt Matt was looking out for my best interests. Even with some low offers Matt never made me feel pressured to accept just so he could close the sale, but got me multipole offers and closed over asking price. Thank You For Making It So Easy To Sell My House!! I highly recommend Matt Dolan! - Betty Funk
Reply: Thank you so much for the kind words Betty!
Matt is a reliable conscientious hard working realtor. Super helpful with staging suggestions and always prompt and efficient with appointments. He goes the extra mile and I highly recommend his services - Julie Pranzl
Reply: Was great working with you on the sale of your condo Julie.
I loved working with Matt. He answered all my questions and was able to offer lots of advice that helped me get a quick sale. I would highly recommend. - Patricia Stoneking
Reply: This was a great example of how a 'Exclusive' or 'Private Sale' should work. We were able to still market the property and discreetly get it sold off the MLS system.
Such a smooth transaction. I cannot recommend Matt highly enough. He got us well over asking price and within a very, very short period of time as well. We will be also using Matt for our new purchase. Do not hesitate to use Matt as your realtor! You will not be disappointed Wow, is all I can say. Matt got us far over asking price and the whole thing was over within days. Highly, highly recommend. Very smooth transaction. We will be using Matt again now for our new purchase. - Rocky & Janice
Reply: It was awesome selling the place. Looking forward to our home hunt together.
We were very happy having Matt as our realtor. As first time home buyers we had so many questions and he and Maryam were quick to respond to all of them. His constructing background came in very handy and he was very knowledgeable about the current market. He was able to help us do our due diligence and purchase a place under the asking price. We will be reaching out to Matt and Maryam when we're ready to move again! I would recommend Matt to anyone looking for a home in the lower mainland, including first-time buyers. What I appreciated the most about Matt was his responsiveness in answering our myriad of questions, as well as making himself available to view homes with us on very short notice. Our hunt for our first home purchase was undoubtedly made easier with Matt behind the helm. - Julienne & Jeremy
Reply: That’s awesome Julienne. We look forward to helping you again! And again! And again!
Mat was very enjoyable and easy to work with. Matt is very professional and was quick to respond to any enquiries that we had. The photos and virtual staging were top notch!! Would recommend Matt to my family and friends!! - Karin
Reply: Loved the way the marketing turned out. Glad I was able to assist with your families massive condo sale.
Matt is extremely hard working and knowledgeable. He was in our corner throughout the process, helping us to avoid the wrong properties and to place competitive bids on the right ones. Even after the sale when a few unexpected challenges popped up he was very helpful. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home! - Sean Gray
Reply: Sean, it was great working with you to find a home. At times it seemed tedious but we pushed through and in the end, we found a hidden gem at a FANTASTIC price.
Matt was amazing from start to finish. He sold our North Vancouver condo for a whopping $275,000 over asking and then helped us buy this property. He has a trades background, is a seasoned renovator and a visionary when it comes to design and staging. Couldn't have asked for someone better. - Kristen
Reply: My very first sale! What an amazing experience and now we are basically neighbours!
Matt knew what to do every step of the way and was very patient with me as this was my first real estate transaction on my own after 18 years in the family home. He secured an offer for OVER list. Matt also helped me find my condo which we purchased for well UNDER list. Matt's knowledge of the market, building systems, and his network of trades people is invaluable. He is the only agent I will deal with in the future and whom I will recommend to friends and colleagues. - Karen Clark
Reply: Thanks Karen! It’s been a pleasure helping you with so many sales over the past couple months
Matt is simply amazing. You can tell he loves what he does and his passion pays off. Professional, friendly, easy to work with, happy to answer any question we had. We had a quick, easy sale, and I would recommend him 100%. - Katherine
Reply: Thanks Katie! Selling your moms place in New Westminster seems like a lifetime ago.
Really knowledgeable and was patient in our process of buying this property. Matt listened to our needs and "must haves" and was able to product great options for us to look at. We would defiantly use Matt again and refer him to friends and family. - Jeff
Reply: Murph! Always great helping you and summer with your real estate needs. Hope you're enjoying Seattle living now.
Matt was recommended by a friend and I found him to be highly personable. He was courteous and guided us through the sale of our townhouse with a professional air which made the process a very calm experience. I would be happy to recommend Matt to any of my friends for either buying or selling. - Gerry Alwell
Reply: Thanks Ollie (Gerry)! Always fun helping you and the family.
Matt was very knowledgeable about everything real estate. He made this process very easy and stress-free (when it could very well go the other way). I certainly would recommend Matt to family and friends looking to buy or sell. Thanks Matt - can't wait to work with you again in the future! - Summer
Reply: Thanks, summer! This sale seems like yesterday! Was a pleasure helping such good friends find a great investment property.
I knew next to nothing about purchasing a home before I started working with Matt who came highly recommended from my mother and sister. I was anxious about making such an important decision but I learned so much about what to look for that I was so confident making my purchase. I sent Matt a map with my top three areas circled and in just over two weeks I had an accepted offer on a condo in my #1 neighbourhood with enough money left over to do renovations and make it completely my own. Matt has put me in contact with great lawyers, contractors, and more. I'm so grateful to have been able to work with Matt for the purchase of my first home, my family won't work with anyone else! - Lindsay
Reply: Thanks Lindsay! It was fun finding you your first place!
Matt is extremely personable and wildly knowledgable about the industry and renovations/construction/contracting. I've worked with multiple realtors before and he knocks it out of the park and is an easy favorite. He is fair with his fee structure and brings huge value to the table as a team with his wife Maryam. I would recommend him in a heartbeat as I know he would give 110% on every client that gets the opportunity to work with him. - spencer
Reply: Thank you Spencer!
Fabulous realtor! Selling and buying is quite stressful, but Matt removes all that stress during my buying/selling process. He is extremely hardworking and really goes to bat on your behalf to get the best deal. He's definitely a expert in his field and I wouldn't use anyone else. Highly recommended! - Barb
Reply: Thanks Barb!!!
The work that Matt Dolan did to get our place sold was nothing short of PHENOMENAL. He was thoroughly professional throughout and made the whole experience a positive one. He offered us lots of extras, which I know is usual practice for him. He was available anytime day or night. We felt our affairs were completely in safe and trusted hands. I would not hesitate to recommend him for ALL Realtor needs. A HUGE thank you to you Matt, and to your lovely wife, we will be forever grateful! - Rachel Fox
Reply: It was a sale for the books! 42 offers and a complex shattering price!
When I was looking to move to New Westminster from Vancouver Matt was quick to respond with listings once he had defined my criteria. We quickly narrowed the search and Matt was very quick to respond to all my questions. Matt was very professional and easy to work with! - Diane
Reply: Aw thanks Diane! It was fun looking at Places together. Hope you’re enjoying summerland!
Matt Dolan is an exceptional realtor. He helped us sell our townhouse and purchase our condo. His professionalism and commitment to getting the sale completed is beyond what I would have expected. His open house technique is second to none and his approach to potential clients extremely professional. Buying/selling property can be a very stressful time, his approach was definitely refreshing and stress free. I would highly recommend Matt, he will not disappoint you! - Sheila Alwell
Reply: Thank you so much Sheila. Some fun Port Moody sales. We had a great champagne open house for that one!
Matt was great to work with. His experience in the building trades before real estate really provided great unmatched insight and knowledge. He was very responsive always whenever I had questions. I really enjoyed working with him and would highly recommend to friends and family. - Joy
Reply: Thanks Joy!!! That 1 star for home staging really crushed my stats! Hahaha! (My client was purchasing so there was no home staging advice needed) 😂
Matt was a pleasure to work with, very personable and professional. From the first moment we contacted him, he was attentive, knowledgeable, quick to respond to any and all inquiries we had, and really listened and understood what we were looking for. His background as an electrician and in construction put him above all realtors we have used in previous years. Not only did he help us find our beautiful condo, he educated us on various points when “shopping” for a condo. We would highly recommend Matt to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, kind, honest and meticulous realtor. We will definitely be using him again in the future. - Chantal
Reply: Thanks Chantal. It was a special sale to say the least!
Matt was very professional and the deal went through very quickly with our desired outcome. We were very pleased with the outcome and highly recommend Matt to anybody looking for a topnotch Realtor. - Jan Dixon
Reply: Thanks Jan! Looking forward to listing your upcoming home sale!! Cheers!
Although I haven't personally used Matt yet to purchase a home he is my go to referral for anyone that is looking and the reviews that come back to me are glowing! I wouldn't refer anyone else and I can't wait to use him myself to purchase an investment property in the near future. Thank you Matt for being a trusted referral for my friends and family! - Trevor
Reply: Thanks for the kind words Trev!
