We were impressed with Allen from the first time we met. Allen was very sincere, compassionate and professional with our circumstances and what we needed. Allen referred us to an attorney to discuss the possibility of a short sale. That referral meant a lot to us & made us feel at ease especially when the attorney confirmed all the information Allen had given us. Allen was always available to speak with us during the short sale process. Again, he continued to be sincere, compassionate and professional throughout the entire process. We would highly reccomend Allen as a Realtor to assist anyone with either selling or buying.
Allen was very kind and appeared to be genuinely concerned about our interests and needs. He was very patient and not pushy-that is he was not persuasive, allowing us to make our own decisions. He showed the homes in a professional manner.
I found Allen Mates to be a professional who took pride in his work. Of high integrity and a person I trust, Allen always had my best interest in mind. Allen seem to know exactly what I was looking for even before I was sure of what I wanted. He is such a people person who takes great interest in the people he is dealing with. Allen was (and still is) available at any time via phone, email or text in response in a very timely manner to requests or questions that I have. I felt very comfortable with Allen's recommendations. He was with me from the very beginning to the end (closing) reassuring me throughout the whole process. I would HIGHLY recommend Allen to family and friends looking for a home.
Excellent to work with and extremely knowledgeable of steps required to make an offer and follow through with all required paperwork.
Alan Mates of Watson Realty is a trusted and knowledgeable Sales agent in our local Clermont, Florida community. We trust Alan’s judgment because of his experience and the ability to act as a buyer/seller broker in a difficult foreclosure market.
Our Goal was to purchase income properties and our best pick was Alan Mates. He wrote up the contract on our first property and submitted it before another buyer had the chance to snag this new bank owned foreclosure.
While we were waiting to close on our first home, Alan began to look for more homes on the market. To our good fortune, within 6 months we closed on three investment properties. These homes were all located in an excellent area and in like new condition. Needles to say he came through with flying colors and with the best price one could ask for.
Alan is always accessible to us via email, phone, text; early in the morning, late at night. Alan’s professionalism and integrality was always excellent about making sure we were never at risk in any way with our contractual agreements, and kept us updated on any changes or info he acquired that we needed to know.
We would highly recommend Alan to family, friends and anyone looking for a top notched real estate agent. BTW, yes we settled as planned on the designated dates for all of our purchases.
In Closing, we find that it is noteworthy that we can rely on Alan’s judgment and never have to second-guess his recommendations.
He is especially competent in representing both buyer and seller in the same transaction, cognizant of his fiduciary responsibility to both. Having bought three income properties,
Alan is best if you are Negotiating, and you will get the best deal. Very professional, always on time, and keeps eye on market and gives you best advice available and comparing to the future outlook. He knows the area very well, and has demonstrated his knowledge to get his clients to the table to solidify the sale or purchase. Alan thanks for all your hard work and we will be contacting you for our future listings.
