"Having Matthew as our realtor was the best possible match for us and we would recommend him to anyone! We were moving back to Iowa but were unfamiliar with the Marion area. Matthew answered all our questions and gave sound practical information about things we wouldn't have known. He's very knowledgeable about the housing market and structural issues and is extremely personable. He is hard working and we can't say enough good things about him!"
– Dave & Becky Bell, September 2017
Matthew is an absolutely awesome agent. He went so far out of his way to help us sell our home. He had a consistently positive, upbeat attitude especially when I was worried. He is wonderful, knowledgeable and we look forward to looking at houses with him!
– Jaime Bussey, July 2017
Fantastic! Matthew was with us and incredibly helpful every step of the way. We couldn't have asked for a more positive experience!
– Erik Bussey, July 2017
Matthew was the most helpful realtor I have ever met. He showed us certain areas in a home that we probably wouldn't have noticed. He was not pushy or annoyed with any questions I asked, and was very very responsive and helped us figure out what we wanted exactly. I would recommend him to everyone!
– Ginny Urban, June 2017
Matthew was Amazing. He went the extra mile and was there every step of the way. He never steered us wrong and was always looking out for us. When we first met him he was just a realtor and now we consider him a friend!
– Ryan Urban, June 2017
Matthew did a fantastic job with everything. All of my concerns were always addressed, and I felt listened to throughout the whole process. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell. He truly has your best interests at heart 100% of the time.
– Brandon Gordon, April 2017
Matthew was very helpful! He gave us great advice on how to help sell our house. It was a very positive experience. I appreciate his support during this process.
– Lanny Downing, April 2017
Matthew was always there anytime we needed him to answer questions, ask us thoughtful questions that helped us determine our needs and without him, we wouldn't have found our perfect house!
– Katie Downing, April 2017
Matthew provided excellent service and went above and beyond in helping us to both sell our old home and purchase our new home.
We found him to be a realtor with a high level of integrity who adheres to strong moral and ethical principles. He was very understanding of our situation and was very pleasant to work with. Matthew is a kind person with a servant's heart who genuinely wants to help people find their perfect home. We would highly recommend him again and again.
– Kris Peyton, March 2017
I worked with Matthew as I sold my condo. He is highly responsive, courteous and ethical. It was a pleasure getting to know him and work with him!

Lanny and I want to give a shout out to Matthew Waddell, Realtor for Skogman. It's so helpful to have someone in your corner, looking out for your best interests. That someone is Matthew for us. We have been so impressed with his relevant anecdotal stories, accessibility and his professionalism throughout this process. We feel he genuinely cares about helping us meet our goals, find the perfect home for our family and get the one we already love, ready to sell. He cares, he's a good person (and happens to be one of our neighbors), but he has worked hard for us because he enjoys what he does. And he's good at it. We both strongly recommend using Matthew for your next housing endeavor (and those of you who know Lanny, you know he's not easily impressed). Thank you, Matthew, for all of the hard work and support you've given us so far! We really do appreciate you!

– Kristin Clinkinbeard, December 2016
Matthew was amazing. He listened to everything we wanted. He was thorough and full of wisdom. We had a fantastic experience finding our "dream home."
– Nick Clinkinbeard, December 2016
Matthew was extremely helpful in pointing out all the aspects of a house, both good and bad, to make sure I got the best one for me. He also explained every step of the process thoroughly so I always understood what it all meant.
– Steve Morton, October 2016
I found Skogman Realty, in particular, Matthew, to be both professional and genuine. I would recommend Matthew to others based on his honesty, attention to detail and availability to my needs.
– Laura Anderson, October 2016
Our relationship with Matthew began nearly five years ago. We were moving out of state, and Matthew was an integral part of getting our home on the market and sold. While living out of state for the past few years, I kept in touch with Matthew with occasional text messages and emails during holidays, etc. Eventually, I had accepted a job offer back in Iowa and it was time to start forming a plan for the move. My first call was to Matthew. We discussed the timeline of the move and what our desires in a new home were. Upon getting moved into our temporary living arrangements in Iowa, we began house-hunting immediately with Matthew. This is one of many areas where Matthew stands above his colleagues. He stressed to us that he did not want us to make a purchase until we were ready. He's built a network of clients and friends by placing buyer's needs above his own. He never pressed for a quick sale and was always available to discuss new listings, showings, concerns, etc. He went out of his way to make the home buying experience an exciting, low-pressure, and enjoyable experience. If you want a realtor that will never stop working for you until you are 100% satisfied, then you want Matthew Waddell.

Matthew, it was so nice working with you. Thank you for all the help you give us. You do your work so professional!
– Al Siemering, October 2016
Matthew was very understanding during the whole process of us buying and selling our home. This was a big task for us, he guided us through each step that needed to be accomplished and even repeated what we needed to do if we didn't understand. Matthew was very professional, understanding and patient. Matthew is a great realtor and friend.
– Anna Siemering, October 2016

Matthew Displayed exceptional skill and knowledge in presenting my home. He frequently visited or called to keep me informed with the progress of the sale. He carefully explained every document and made sure I understood what each said. An excellent experience with an excellent realtor!
– Lucy Bales, August 2016
As people not familiar with the area, it was great to follow Matthew around from house to house. Matthew educated us with the process of buying a home (what to worry about what to not) as it was the first time for us. I appreciated Matthew's Christian perspective as "it was God's will what we'd get, etc." Matthew taught us a lot about what to look for in a house in the process, good roof, be careful of this/that, etc. He did a great job trying to get us what we might want and felt like he was taking care of us.
– April Hetrick, July 2016
Matthew went the extra mile to ensure our first home buying experience was smooth and enjoyable. Since we were doing most of the process from long distance, we needed a realtor we could trust. Matthew was that man!
– Darrin Hetrick, July 2016
Matthew did everything in his power to get our house sold. I will tell everyone who is looking for a realtor to see Matthew.

Great job and thanks!
– Tricia Vorhies, May 2015
Previously, I was a skeptic when it came to REALTORS. This was the first
time I used a Realtor and I was pleasantly surprised. Dave Ramsey always says
REALTORS will save you money, and I never understood how that could be
true. Matthew proved this to me (us) in the way he used his professional
expertise to get us the most ideal sale.
– Nicholas Bonifazi, January 2015
Matthew did a wonderful job working with us on the showing, inspection, and
required paperwork on our new home. He was very available when we needed him.
Matt went above and beyond when it came to working with us on the closing
procedures. We consider Matt to be more than our Realtor, we consider him a

My wife and I recently married and decided to purchase a house. It seemed

easiest people due to our differing tastes. Matthew was patient and helpful!
