Matt Friedlander

Matt Friedlander

Broker Associate

Matt Friedlander quickly found his niche in the Austin real estate market. He attributes his early success to his people, analytical and negotiation skills honed over decades of business and military experience. Originally from Southern California, Matt headed to the east coast to attend the U.S. Naval Academy. He served in the United States Navy for five years before going to the University of Michigan to complete an MBA. His first role after business school was with a top-tier management consulting firm where he advised large corporations and sharpened his business skills.

Tired of living out of a suitcase and ready to put down roots, Matt bought his first Austin property in 2004 and went to work at Dell where he served in a variety of strategic roles. After dabbling in a few personal real estate investment projects, he realized he not only had a knack for real estate – he but also enjoyed it. That spurred him to get his real estate license and transition into real estate full time. He has not looked back since!

Matt is a perpetual learner and always goes above and beyond for his clients. He derives great satisfaction from helping others achieve their real estate goals, whether buying or selling a personal home or purchasing an investment property. In his free time, Matt is active in his local church and volunteers with civic and philanthropic organizations such as Leadership Austin and Mobiles Loaves and Fishes. He enjoys water sports on Lady Bird Lake and Lake Austin, and loves traveling the world to surf.

Matt is an incredibly analytical, responsive and ethical agent and broker. He has helped me to find tenants for my rental property and renew their lease. He has also provided excellent analysis of the real estate market, as I've considered purchasing or selling properties. I would recommend Matt to anyone looking for a thoughtful and customer service oriented agent.

I've bought and sold nearly a dozen proprieties in California and Texas - Matt is, hands down, the most savvy agent that I've worked with. He sold our last million $ plus home with creativity and finesse - the process was smooth for us and our buyers. Then he helped us find a home that we could remodel to suit us. He listened, was patient and provided solid ROI advice and we are so happy with the results.

Matt is extremely responsive, knowledgeable, and is a Realtor warrior. He helped my girlfriend and I find out first house; while we were not always the most generous offer, Matt's unique insight provided us the upper hand with the ability to close much quicker than the competition allowing us to seal the deal. Couldn't have done it without you, Matt! If he can handle high-maintenance first-time home buyer Millennials with grace, precision, and charm - give him a shot. Anyone with Matt on their team is light years ahead of the competition and closer to owning the home of their dreams.

Matt was very professional in dealing with us, as well as the other agents, inspectors and title company representatives that were involved. He was extremely organized and kept us updated every step of the way. He strikes an uncommon balance of strong business skills with a very warm, relatable personality. All in all, I would highly recommend Matt from the simplest to the most intricately complex real estate deal.

Matt was excellent throughout the entire home buying process. He was patient while we searched for the perfect home. He listened to our (very specific) criteria, guided us through the search/inspection/close process, and never made us feel lost or discouraged. Matt is an excellent Realtor & highly recommended!!

Matt helped me purchase my first home back in 2014. I was working with a very rough understanding of the entire process and Matt was patient, informative, accessible, and just overall a great person to work with. After having talked with friends about their home buying experiences, I realized that Matt (and not any of their Realtors) did a thorough market analysis of my neighborhood's recent home values, sales trends, etc. so that when we decided on my initial offer, I was neither overpaying nor offering a dismissively low amount. When I am ready to buy again, I will absolutely be giving Matt a call.

Matt is amazing! I just got my keys yesterday and I couldn't be more thrilled with everything. Being a first time home buyer, Matt has been amazingly helpful in educating me in the process, checking on my progress, and clearly defining things I should be looking out for. He is EXTREMELY responsive and fast. We closed in just about less than 30 days because Matt was able to rally everyone together and we worked extremely efficiently and quickly to communicate and close the deal. Matt is great at giving me advice and communicating his thoughts and concerns but was always very understanding and respectful in giving me room to make my own decisions and come to my own conclusions on how to best proceed. I couldn't be happier with this whole experience and I love my new home. Stars all around!

Matt is very professional. His knowledge of the market is amazing. He was able to get us the perfect place at a price we could afford. I would highly recommend him.

When we sought out our first home, we were determined to find a house we would make our home. Matt Friedlander showed us at least 20 homes, some we viewed a couple of times. I am not the most decisive when it comes to big decisions, and he was patient with me. He assured us we would find the perfect home.

Being a new home buyer, Matt explained the process in great detail. He made sure our questions were answered, and we understood what each step entailed.

I have referred Matt to friends and family. I will use Mr. Friedlander to purchase our next home, when that time comes.

We’ve now closed two more properties this year (with a third potentially yet by end of year) and the process just keeps getting more efficient.

A couple of things:

  • Superb communication
  • Excellent analytics (we use numbers fairly extensively)
  • Great flexibility (which is critical, since I’m frequently having to postpone/reschedule/cancel)
  • Strong attention to detail (especially important as we look to all of the various items associated with the close)

Couldn’t recommend him more…Realty Austin is fortunate to have him.

Matt was a great real estate agent: very helpful and guided me through every step of the process. He got a good deal for us on a house we love. I would easily recommend him.

It’s with great enthusiasm that I’m recommending Matt Friedlander as a premier real estate agent here in Austin. Matt is unique because he has tremendous market analytic and interpersonal skills.

We needed his help on the complex sale of our home and he was able to determine a price point based on a variety of data points which helped us see where we could reasonably expect to sell the house and generally within what time frame. He then suggested a creative listing approach and marketed the house through digital and physical channels. He found creative ways to uncover interested buyers that would have never occurred to us.

Throughout the process he was always in touch, clear about setting expectations, flexible and direct. He was able to make a complex sale, quickly, and at our asking price. We are convinced this was due to his hard work, creativity, and partnership.

On the buy side, we asked Matt to always shoot straight, to tell his unvarnished opinion of the houses we were viewing and to keep the analytics front of mind. We had to look at a number of houses before we settled on one we liked…and even though when time came for an offer and he had to be out of town for personal reasons, he found someone to help us with the offer logistics and he kept close tabs even when he had far bigger things on his end.

It was through the offer process with his proxy that we realized how much we came to trust Matt’s method for placing offers, which we deeply valued. We got the house and Matt was, again, extremely helpful and thoughtful throughout the closing process.

Through it all, Matt has become a part of our family. He proved over and over again that a great agent is really a remarkable advantage and Matt’s approach is thorough, thoughtful and smart. Give him a call.

I’ve been extremely impressed with Matt and you’re fortunate if he’s representative of the type of talent that you have at Realty Austin.

He’s extremely professional and responsive and puts his client’s needs first while being reasonable with the other parties.. which can be a fine line to balance at times. I've been quite impressed with his ability to bring analytics to the discussion, and spend the appropriate time “pre-vetting” things, so I didn’t need to waste time “exploring” with him… Instead, he knows what I’m looking for, gets a select group of properties ready to go, and then we efficiently work through them.

Will definitely continue to work with him going forward…

Matt utilizes his business and consulting skills as a top notch Austin Realtor! He was patient and learned to understand our real estate interest as we considered both condos and homes. Matt responded to our calls, questions, needs and found us the perfect house in the best area for us. He streamlined all documents and processes and has an amazing automated tool for offering the correct price. My husband, Gus, and I highly recommend Matt!

Helayne O'Keiff

Matt is the best choice to work with for the following reasons:

  1. He understands the market at both an instinctual level and a data-driven level.
  2. He is intimately familiar with the key players in the real estate business network (and, frankly, is well-liked and held in high regard).
  3. When he understands your business priorities, he is able to focus and drive hard towards the desired result.
  4. He is very responsive, particularly when matters take an unexpected turn and can move extremely fast.
  5. He knows Central Austin like the back of his hand - we ranged all over Tarrytown, Bryker Woods, Rosedale, and Hyde Park, and Matt knew the neighborhoods, the schools, and the market (in no small part because of all the properties he himself had been involved with buying or selling).
  6. To be plain - he simply knows how to get stuff done.

Matt is incredible. Smart, detail-oriented, financially savvy and very effective in selling real estate. He's developed his own proprietary process for helping clients from initial inquiry to closing that is efficient, transparent and confidence-inspiring. I felt like I was working with a seasoned and professional business executive, which not surprisingly is Matt's background.

Kevin Walbrick

We were very glad we picked Matt as our real estate agent for selling our home and buying the next one. He went above and beyond in helping our family. We were especially impressed by his attention to detail and his always-encouraging attitude. We will definitely recommend Matt to our friends and family.

I worked with Matt Friedlander and enjoyed his expertise very much! He was wonderfully positive through the whole process and always available to help me through whatever needed to be done. I felt that he always had the upper hand when it came to negotiating and I learned to trust his advice. When I'm ready to buy a new house, I know I'll be calling him again!

We have just finished a new build transaction with Matt after about 10 months of working together. It was an amazing adventure and with Matt’s guidance we secured a rental property that has already appreciated in value handsomely since the build contract was signed. Matt was there for every step of the process and we appreciated his insight.

I came to appreciate his integrity most and his intellectual analysis on making the dollar work while there secondly. Since we are buying investment property, we wanted to take out the emotion and make money. Matt has taken us there.

Matt’s eagerness and sincerity are welcomed. His entrepreneurial spirit is what we sought out in a real estate agent. When Matt offers advise, it is straight forward guidance, clear thought processes, and insight on the whole end to end in real estate at every step. He entertains the healthy debate too which works perfectly with us. We introduced him to others like investors to debate the approach and realized we were fortunate to have an open minded agent working with us (not for us – but with us).

We are planning more purchases to build a small real estate portfolio and will do it Matt leading us there!

Matt Friedlander just sold our house in Austin. We've known Matt for years and know him to be of great character, a very hard worker and very successful in all endeavors. He was our first choice as realtor when we needed to sell our house.

We were very impressed all during the process of selling. Matt had a well thought out plan; from a numbers plan to a visual plan. Every step of the way we knew our house was a top priority for him. He suggested a professional stager and photographer come in and stage our house. What wonderful pictures we had of our house to put online. When we saw them we wanted to stay living in that house!

Once for sale our house sold in two days with two offers and it sold for $10,000 over asking! We couldn't have been more pleased. Matt made it all happen and made our experience a very positive one. I would highly recommend Matt to anyone.

We very much enjoyed working with Matt Friedlander to buy our first home. His analytical & statistical approach filtered through a highly relational, warm way of working with us was a powerful combination. Matt was very quick on email & phone, always available even if we had questions at awkward times, and walked us fully through the process from initial idea-searching to the final closing date. His questions and presence helped us figure out what we were looking for (we couldn't even articulate it at first) without telling us what we should be looking for! We love the home we ended up with and feel great about the final outcome: price, location, timing, process, and more. My interaction with Realty Austin centered on Matt and the website for home searches. Realty Austin’s website was very helpful in wrapping our heads around the Austin market, visiting homes virtually to make the most of in-person house tours, and conducting in-depth research to find just the house our family was looking for. I couldn't imagine buying a home without using a robust engine such as the one Realty Austin has put together. Matt definitely served us well this summer in helping us find just the right place. We had a great experience and would highly recommend him with full confidence to anyone in Austin.

I very much enjoyed working with Matt. He is very knowledgeable and went above and beyond to show me places all over Austin. He is very detailed oriented and made sure I understood every step of the buying cycle inside and out, which was very helpful to me being a first time home buyer. I will definitely recommend Matt to my friends in Austin that are looking to buy.

Matt Friedlander was our agent that we used recently to purchase our condo in Austin. Matt helped us refine our needs and area of search so we could find the right fit for us, not just find a condo. Matt was extremely patient with our search as we had no real time constraints and he was extremely thorough in his follow up and communication, especially when it came to the actual offer and all of the steps subsequent to the offer. We were able to complete the transaction without actually being in Austin except for one visit when we had identified a couple of potential 'fits" for us. The listing agent was less than competent in this business transaction and Matt had to overcome all of his inadequacies in order to make this deal work, and I have to give Matt a lot of credit for his thoughtful actions and follow up. Thank you Matt.

We recently hired Matt Friedlander to be our real estate representative to help us with the construction of our new home. He has been a fantastic asset to this whole process and has helped the project stay on track. He has also been instrumental in establishing clear communication between us and the builder. Builders tend to be unreliable in providing information about the home building process and updates on the progress of home's construction. Matt's strong project management background was very useful in his ability to influence the builder to be open and efficient about the way they communicate. He convinced them to provide accurate information in a timely manner which greatly assisted us in making decisions about the home's upgrades prior to the builder's established deadlines.

Matt is a hard worker and has helped us in so many other ways; here are but a few:

  1. He suggested a third party inspector that we could hire for inspecting our home at different points in the construction process.
  2. He helped us find 3rd party contractors to hire for work that the builder was unable to accommodate prior to closing.
  3. Expertly guiding us through the home building process.

I believe that it is very important to have a knowledgeable representative when dealing with a builder (especially if this is the first time that one is building/buying a home) and Matt has done an outstanding job in that role.

I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who may want an experienced real estate professional to help them through this process.

Matt is very professional and helpful in helping us to buy a single family home in Austin. Without Matt, my husband and I couldn't get our dream home so quickly with a great price, school district, and quality. We appreciate what Matt did for us. Actually, one of our friends is depending on Matt to find an Austin home and he is very satisfied with Matt's service. In the future, we will definitely recommend Matt to a lot of our friends, colleagues and investors who plan to buy homes in Austin. Tons of our thanks, Matt!

As first time sellers, my husband and I had a lot of questions, and a bit of trepidation when we decided to put our house on the market. Selling a home is complex and demands constant attention. With 2 kids under the age of two, a cat, a dog and both of us working full time the thought of selling our house was overwhelming. We've met with other agents in the past, but the first time we met with Matt we knew he was the one that we were going to work with. Not only is Matt a terrific guy, but he had a thorough knowledge of the marketplace, he was realistic in setting expectations, and he had a comprehensive understanding of buyer demographics in the area. He kept us informed throughout the entire process and was very professional. He helped guide and manage every step. My husband and I are still in disbelief at how smooth it all went. We won't buy/sell again without Matt!

My husband and I recently purchased a home in Westlake and had a great experience working with Matt. He made the process fun and enjoyable not to mention he is extremely professional and thorough. Matt has a great balance of good humor, patience, understanding and diplomacy. He went above and beyond in the inspection process and took the time to go over all the details of getting us settled once we bought the house. He also helped my sister and her husband sell their house they were thrilled with the results.

My wife & I hired Matt as our "buyer’s agent" during our most recent house purchase. He took the time to understand what was important to us. His search and show process was effective. He took great pains to not overwhelm us with too many houses or neighborhoods. He is very data driven, which served as a nice balance to our "gut feeling" approach. We are very happy with our new house and neighborhood.

Matt listed the house next door to our home.  We saw the level of effort, attention to detail on helping get the house prepared to sell and marketing our neighbor's house and decided to use him to sell our house. We were really impressed and pleased to work with Matt.  He and his team did a great job covering all the details and the process was very efficient and effective.  Based on his pre-listing marketing efforts, we had an offer before the house was officially on the market.  Amazing job!

I recently worked with Matt on a home purchase. Matt was filling in for my regular agent who had to be away during the deal and I was instantly struck with how personable Matt was. From the very outset Matt was available as and when I required counsel regarding my purchase. His response time is phenomenal and his knowledge of the local Austin area market is excellent. Over the course of the weeks that I worked with Matt I found that I relied on him more and more for advice and insight as to various aspects of the deal. I find Matt to be extremely helpful and forthright . He advised on a variety of issues related to the title commitments, surveys, remodeling and deal closing. It is safe to say that the deal wouldn't have closed without his help and guidance.
