A Message From Matt

Welcome to Seaside! If you are looking at the possibly relocating to the coast, as a resident of Seaside, I highly recommend you come visit and see all that it has to offer. Seaside is the most affordable place to purchase a home on the coast. It is also one of the sunniest spots on the Monterey Bay, with the summer marine layer usually clearing here first! If you are planning on selling, now is the time to take advantage of low inventory and quick selling due to low interest rates and high demand.

★★★★★ My wife and I used Matt as our agent to purchase a second home in Pacific Grove. I am familiar with the area but only enough to love it but not to understand the many separate and inter-related communities. On my numerous appointments with Matt he choose homes that fit what we were looking for. I had him cover a larger area than PG, he is always prepared for our day. The only reason it took me awhile to find the perfect home was the learning curve for me to understand what was really important to my wife and I. Once I defined that we made a wonderful purchase. Love the area and am thankful to Matt for his guidance.

★★★★★ Thanks to Matt's expertise, I recently bought a house that was not yet officially on the market. It is my dream and my forever home. He assisted me every step of the process, showing me multiple houses until I could narrow down my priorities. Matt was amazing during the process. His real estate and local market knowledge was essential to finding the perfect home. He also had contacts for several additional inspections and other experts. He got the price lowered due to those extra inspections.

Matt is keenly aware of the local market and can help any buyer locate, negotiate and purchase the perfect home. His professionalism and genuine care for his seller or buyer is outstanding. If I have ny real estate needs in the future I will call Matt. I have already recommended him to a colleague at work.

★★★★★ Matt recently sold an investment property for me; this is the second property he has sold for me and both times I have been extremely satisfied with the selling price and the experience of working with him. Matt is professional, highly knowledgeable, a skilled negotiator and easy to work with. He kept me informed all through the process and handled the details of the transaction in a timely and efficient manner. I couldn’t have asked for a better agent and would welcome the opportunity to use his services in the future.

★★★★★ Matt McGrath is the best, most conscientious, thorough and caring realtor I have ever worked with. He went above and beyond what was expected. Matt listened to our needs and wants, only showed homes that were in our price range and met our needs, reviewed and explained all documents and deadlines, brought in experts to assess potential problems with the home we finally bought, and was there for us every step of the way. Matt gets our highest recommendation.

★★★★★ Matt McGrath at By the Sea Properties did an amazing job selling our house in Seaside CA this year. The personal attention and priority he gave the entire transaction from start to finish was remarkable. He and his wife, Kirsten, staged the house beautifully, showcasing each room and the yard to the best advantage. Matt pitched in personally to help us with repairs, retouches, and extra paperwork that came up during the various inspections, always going the extra mile to move the process along. He was brilliant negotiator with the buyers' agent , closing the deal in a matter of weeks above the price point we wanted. We were so pleased to work with Matt, experiencing the personal commitment he brings to every aspect of the real estate process. We couldn't recommend him more highly for any real estate purchase or sale you may wish to do in the Monterey Bay property market.

★★★★★ Matt showed me property in area I liked. I decided what I wanted and since nothing was currently available....he kept me up to date. He contacted me the minute the right property came on the market. I was first to see new listing and I had purchased it within 6 hours of seeing it. He walked me thru every step of escrow and in just over 3 weeks I was owner of my perfect home. I would highly recommend Matt....., he was terrific!!!!!!!
