Matthew and his wife Holly, moved to FNQ in July 2020 and quickly fell in love with the captivating beauty of the landscape, and “the zest for life” that it inspires. Both avid SCUBA divers, they longed to find somewhere that they could call home which offered them world class diving, alongside the serenity and adventure of tropical rainforests and an exciting/bustling town with which they could develop their careers. Arriving in Port Douglas, they needn’t look any further and they now plan to settle down and start a family of their own here.
Matthew joined the firm in 2021 as a Licensed Real Estate Agent having completed his qualifications in hotel quarantine amid the recent global pandemic. His career in Real Estate first began in the UK in 2011. Several years of intensive training laid the foundation for Matthew achieving the biggest milestone of his career, and under new employment through Mitchells estate agents, he was given the accountable position of Branch Manager and assumed responsibility for building a new office in the coastal town of Mudeford, UK. Business-minded, devoted and with boundless enthusiasm for working with people, this new venture thrived and grew to become the market leader within the first year of trading and still retains this title today.
Whether you are looking to buy or sell here in Port Douglas and the surrounding areas, then choose Matthew’s dedication and energy to help get you over the line.
Even with what seemed as a complicated sale from the seller, Matt did a great job at persisting over the past few months. And now I finally have a great home I can be proud of. Cheers again Matt!
We sought a valuation from Matthew Essex after he letterboxed our street. Matthew was prompt to set up an appointment, and spent an hour with us detailing his research and assessment of our property value based on his several hours of comparative market analysis. After that he provided us a detailed letter including rental appraisal as requested. Matthew’s help provides us with good information upon which to base decisions about our property. Thank you Matthew.
Matthew took over selling my property and achieved what two other agents could not – he got it sold. Matthew cared, and organised for better photographs to be taken, and a new campaign for my property. It instantly received more hits than in the previous weeks. He kept me up to date on interest in the property at all times. I would highly recommend Matthew as a Real Estate Agent.
Very professional. Very knowledgeable and a pleasant person to deal with.
Matthew raised our expectations for the sale of our unit and he excelled in every aspect. The quality of his advice, his professional presentation, and the presentation of our property; they wer all without fault. And he delivered a sale above our price point by lunch time on the first day it was listed – got to be super happy with that!
Thanks Matthew for an excellent outcome. Couldn’t of asked more of you. A very happy outcome under some difficult circumstances. Great marketing, communication and very professional at all times. Down to earth. Thanks.
Matthew was excellent in his provision of property information, listening to my requirements and arranging multiple consecutive inspections on listings he thought would be of interest. He also anticipated information that would be required and followed up once it was provided to ensure I was satisfied with the response. He also ensured that contractual conditions to enable bidding and purchase and auction were consistent with my needs under difficult circumstances.
