Reviews of Daniel Di Matteo

Experienced, knowledgeable, and professional, Daniel is the finest real estate agent in the San Diego area. He helped my family buy our house in 2007 and sell it this last year and both transactions were handled with skill and care. He worked with us to find want we truly wanted in our home and also explained simply what was required in our decision to move. Daniel knows the areas, knows the markets, and takes care of all the details to ensure a smooth and pleasant experience. I would recommend Daniel to anyone looking for the best possible agent to handle there real estate needs. Thanks again Daniel!

Daniel helped us in finding our perfect home. It was a long and not an easy process but he helped us all throughout. We dealt with different realtors before we came to him and we were treated differently. They didn’t have the patience that Daniel has. He didn’t leave us behind until we found a perfect home that fit our family and our budget. We appreciate everything he has done for us to make a dream of owning a home a reality. I highly recommend Daniel and will definitely use his services again in the future when the need arise.

Being a first time home buyer was hard enough but fortunately for me I met Daniel Di Matteo. After wasting 3 months of my time with an inexperienced real estate agent I quickly realized that Daniel is the real deal. He is knowledgeable and has a great deal of insight in the real estate arena. The reason why I gave Daniel such a high rating was because he was always accessible and professional. He took the time to listen to what I was looking for in a home. He explained the entire process with ease and answered all questions. His expertise helped me obtain the right house for me and in a reasonable time frame. What I also liked about Daniel is that he has such a great personality; it was like having a good friend who kept my best interest at heart. It’s been a few years since Daniel helped me purchase my first home and he has kept in touch with me and has even given me great home improvement ideas. I have no reservations whatsoever in recommending Daniel. If you are looking for a real estate agent who is going to give you the best out come possible; Daniel Di Matteo is the right person for you.

— Joseph O.

Outstanding service and marketing. Daniel pours himself into your house, buying or selling. I will recommend him without exception and would certainly hire him again.

— Mike A.

Daniel helped us with our home sale in San Diego, and even though we’ve been through the home sale process a few times before, Daniel was a great resource to guide us through the entire sale. We were dealing with a particularly “challenging” buyer, and Daniel saved me from a couple of potential meltdowns by putting things in perspective – and ultimately we closed the sale as planned and on schedule. We relocated out of state prior to the sale, so Daniel was awesome about checking on the house periodically to make sure everything was clean and in order prior to any showings. I think he even dealt with some pretty nasty smelling trash cans at one point. 🙂 Daniel certainly goes above and beyond without being asked or expected – would love to work with him again if the opportunity presents itself!

— Linette L.

Daniel is the person to go to if you have any real estate needs! He has been an amazing resource to us ever since we have chosen to work with him. Daniel has clear marketing strategies to help you sell your home fast at the right price. As soon as we decided to go with him, he took care of everything including hiring a professional photographer, staging the house, arranging open houses, etc. He explained everything in detail during his presentation which made things easier for us. He is very knowledgeable, extremely helpful and very prompt at what he does. He lives up to his reputation too. He sold our house in ~ 2 weeks at a price 2% above our listed price and closed within 2 weeks too! We’re so glad that we chose to work with him. Keep up the great work, Daniel!

— Moushumi D.

Daniel made home buying very easy for my wife and I. We were recommended through some friends who purchased their first home with him as well. He was very helpful throughout the entire process and answered every question we had. To top it off when we had our initial meeting with him he broke down the home buying process to its entirety which was awesome.
He was flexible with my work schedule and helped us close on our home in less than a month. I would highly recommend Mr. Di Matteo to anyone in San Diego!

— Tom P.

Daniel has been a trooper through my short sale. He explained everything thoroughly and worked at my pace. This was a sensitive process for me and he was very accommodating.
Daniel exhibited professionalism throughout the short sale process and got the buyer and I through escrow.
I will certainly be using Daniel again in the near future.

— Michelle P.

I have worked with Daniel Di Matteo on many real estate transactions and he’s always been a pleasure to work with him. He always stays on top of his transactions and has excellent follow through. You can always count on him to do an excellent job and he really comes through with all his clients. I would definitely recommend Daniel if you are looking for an excellent real estate agent in your area.

— Veronica V.

Having worked with Daniel Di Matteo I can tell you this from my perspective. He is on top of his game in all ways. He works extremely hard to make sure his clients are well taken care of!

— Tim G.

I have been working with Daniel Di Matteo for sometime now. He is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the real estate market. I know he takes care of every single one of his clients and gives his full attention. You will be happy to have him work for you selling or buying your next home. It’s always great to work with him, way to go Daniel!

— Justen B.

Daniel is an amazing Real Estate Agent. Always goes above and beyond, I highly recommend Daniel Di Matteo!

— Josh B.

Daniel is a bright dude. Amazing customer service, patient and is willing to work hard to meet your needs as a buyer or seller. I feel at ease when I ask this guy questions about real estate – usually one would preface, “This is probably a stupid question, but….” With Daniel, there are no stupid questions. He’s hands down the best real estate agent I’ve ever worked with.

— JC N.

Daniel is an amazing realtor! He helped my fiancee and I purchase our very first home. The patience, professionalism, and insight you get from Daniel is phenomenal. He was always there to meet us when we were interested in looking at a house, no matter the distance or time of day, he always made it happen. Whenever we had any questions at all, he was always readily available. That is a trait, especially in purchasing our first home, that we loved! His experience in the field is immediately noticeable.

We trusted Daniel in the entire process of buying our first home, and he definitely worked his magic. If you are looking for a realtor, look no further, Daniel is your guy!

— Michael C.

I can’t say enough good things about Daniel Di Matteo. He was truly a professional who excels at his craft. When he first arrived at our home he had a prepared presentation that gave my wife and I a little background on his marketing strategy. He helped us stage our 3 bedroom home and created a buzz through his effective internet techniques and we were able to sell our home in 30 days. I would recommend Daniel Di Matteo to anyone looking to sell their home!

— Luis G.

Daniel sold our home in Chula Vista in November 2015 in under a month at 2% more than the expected value. Extremely delighted with his service – 5 stars all the way. If you want more details then read on.

Ours was a single family home in Chula Vista that we bought not too long ago. We were in the process of relocating to Seattle and needed help with selling our home. We spoke to 4 different agents and decided to work with Daniel because of his fact based approach and sound marketing strategy. We had the choice to work with other realtors who offered a lower commission percentage, but we put a premium on Daniel’s effective marketing strategy. And he delivered! Sold our home at a great price in ~2 weeks and got wire transfer in 2 more weeks. The average time it takes to sell and close your home during Q4 of 2015 was about 90 days in Chula Vista. Daniel saved us at least 2 months that translated into mortgage payment savings. The other important factor was price. We feel that Daniel helped us get to the right buyers who knew the right value of our home and was willing to pay the right price (2% higher than we initially expected).

Daniel helped us stage and present the home in a way that attracted a lot of buyers (just check out his current/previous listings). He is very strategic about the timing of the listing going live, appointment times, open houses etc. This helps keep the excitement alive. He was also very sensitive to your needs. We had an issue with people not using the disposable booties. Daniel responded immediately, posted stickers on the doors and ensured that it was not an issue going forward. Finally, the thing that I liked most about Daniel is that he works in the background without bragging about it. Selling a home is a complicated process involving multiple parties that require a lot of coordination; Daniel made it seem like an easy one.

— Rahul B.

Thanks to Daniel, my husband and I quickly and easily closed on our first home. We knew little to nothing of how the buying process worked, and we weren’t sure what we should expect budget wise. Daniel broke down everything for us, including information about VA loan requirements. My husband is in the Navy and tends to have a crazy/busy schedule, but Daniel was consistently flexible to meet with us and immediately responded to e-mails/phone calls with any questions we had. We’re thankful our friends recommended him to us and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell. The housing process is much easier when you have a realtor who is friendly, understanding, and helps meet your needs. 🙂

— Kendra P.

Nothing but great things to say about Daniel. From the start to end he was very helpful and did everything in a timely manner.

— Chris B.

Our experience with Daniel Di Matteo far exceeded our expectations. I first contacted Daniel with a series of questions about the sale of my home and the purchase of another. He provided all of the answers quickly without any pressure of continuing the process of hiring him. After a formal meet and greet at our house, he provided us with his background information, his sale history (which is quite impressive) and his goals for our sale. The entire meeting was very impressive. We left the meeting feeling like we had to turn the sale of our home over to him. The entire experience from start to finish was above our expectations, and we sold out home within 40 minutes of the first viewing for our asking price! The amount of advertising we received, the fliers, movies, and photos all contributed to the quick sale and really highlighting our house in the best way. We were told by many people that it looked like a model home. He invested in our house to get us top dollar and didn’t cut any corners. The paperwork, emails, and texts were all impressively responded to within minutes. We would highly recommend Daniel to anyone in the market to buy, sell, or to just get more information about the process and we are so grateful for his attention and care to the sale of our home.

— Kristy A.

Daniel DiMatteo was very prepared and provided us an excellent presentation. We liked how he aggressively used social media. Daniel DiMatteo is well organized and it showed throughout the p rocess. Daniel DiMatteo was very professional and he handled the negotiations exceptionally well. We feel Daniel DiMatteo got us the most for our home given the current market in our area of Eastlake.

— Jack M.

We were blown away by our experience working with Daniel. We had a very tight time line to sell our home and he didn’t miss a beat. He was professional, always on the ball, sensitive to our situation, and eager to do anything it took to make sure we were happy and comfortable. We had our open house on a Saturday and accepted an offer on Monday and closed in 30 days. We felt empowered, informed, and in control of the decisions that needed to be made. We greatly appreciated Daniel’s attention to detail that greatly helped us sell quickly and invest only in items that we would actually see a return on, and not throw money down the drain. We highly recommend anyone, buying or selling, to Daniel.

— Chelsea B.

I Would recommend Daniel to everyone. His thoughtfulnes in handling my situation was exceptional. He made everything easy to understand.

— Pam W.

This was my third time in buying and selling a home but the first time I did so using Daniel’s services. The previous two purchases were with another well known realtor in the Eastlake/Bonita area that always did a great job and I won’t mention her by name because she’s great, too. In fact we felt very conflicted when deciding to go with Daniel but he came with such high references we were willing to give him a shot at earning our listing. It’s no secret that my wife and I have very high standards (some might say unrealistic, even). As such most vendors don’t live up to them and when we’re done we always seem to feel somewhat dissatisfied with whatever service it may have been. But I can tell you that Daniel not only met our expectations but he far exceeded them on all levels. Which if you knew us you would know how difficult that is! 🙂

Daniel’s excellent marketing skills helped us to not only stage our home beautifully, but his plan for listing the house and using digital media created such a pent up demand that the open house was very well attended in what would typically be a down time for selling (i.e., the middle of January). We had three offers all for list price or above the very first weekend! And not only were they above list price but our home sold for over $40,000 more than our neighbor’s sold for just one month earlier!

I highly recommend Daniel to anyone looking to sell their home.

— The Wagner Family

He is trustworthy, knowledgeable and look after the well being of his clients.

— The Nepomuceno Family

Daniel was incredibly patient with me throughout the home buying process. He made sure I was informed every step of the way and answered all of my questions. I would recommend Daniel in a heart beat if you looking for a professional real estate agent. Thank you so much for your help!

— Brett S.

Daniel was very helpful and answered all of our questions. If anyone ever needs a realtor we will surely recommend Daniel. He is a 10 out of 10.

— Ryan F.

I can’t say enough how helpful and knowledgeable Daniel is. He’s customer service oriented and will do everything he can to help his clients during and after the transaction. I was fortunate enough to be referred to him by a friend and he made the sale process of my home go as smooth as could be in spite of it being a short sale. I was very impressed with his attentiveness and proactive style to get the deal done. Recently I needed some documents from this 4yr old sale and within 5 minutes of an email request to Daniel, he responded with the documents I needed! I highly recommend Daniel for all you real estate needs, he is definitely deserving of his 5 star rating!

— The Reyes Family

Daniel did an amazing job of marketing and selling our home. We had an open house on Saturday and had multiple offers by Monday, all OVER OUR ASKING PRICE. He is extremely professional and we couldn’t have asked for more. He sure gets an A+ from our family and we highly recommend him. I can sure understand why he is the top agent in our area. His digital marketing plan is amazing and he is just impressive all the way around. Even with all his awards, he is easy going and very easy to work with. He couldn’t be happier. with our real estate sale and we highly recommend Daniel Di Matteo.

— Marilyn H.

Nothing but great things to say about Daniel. From the start to end he was very helpful and did everything in a timely manner.

— Christopher B.

Words can’t describe the amount of gratitude I have for Daniel. I was very skeptical about him at first even though he had a friendly and welcoming presence and was highly recommended by a friend because it was my first time selling my house. I’ve talked to a few agents but I can honestly say that he’s the best agent I have worked with He got me WAY more than I even expected to get back after selling my house. He picked up all my calls and if he couldn’t he would reply back quickly and answered all of my questions and concerns. He is a MAN of his WORD. I would RECOMMEND him and I will definitely be working with him to PURCHASE my next House.

I came to Daniel with a huge task. At first I thought it was going to be an impossible feat but decided to go for it as I had nothing to lose. He was able to sell my house and complete the process within 12 days! Daniel not only sold our home but he was able to get more for the house than expected. $80k more! He made the process easier than I thought it would be. He answered all questions I had and communicated the process throughout the way. He is very personable. I am more than happy I decided to reach out to him and hope in the future I’ll be able to use him to buy my next home!

— Joan H.

Daniel provided outstanding customer service from start to finish. He helped me sell my Eastlake townhome and was very knowledgeable. He was always available and kept me in the loop at all times. I would recommend Daniel to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home. I am very pleased and could not have found a better agent. Thank you Daniel!

— Tarra R.

In 2 months, Daniel was able to help my fiancé and I find and close on our first home. We told him what we wanted and he made it happen. We love our home.

Daniel is fun, easy-going, knowledgeable and professional, and made the entire process smooth for us. From financing through close of escrow, when we had questions, he had the answers. Everyone knows that purchasing a home can be a convoluted process, but Daniel broke down the real estate language and requirements and made it easy for us to understand. When looking through properties, Daniel helped identify things we should consider and provided a different prospective when there was an area of concern.

In short, Daniel aligned our vision to what we now call home. We are extremely satisfied with the service Daniel provided, give him the opportunity and he will not let you down.

— Monica P.

Daniel helped us sell our home in Eastlake. We had an Open House on a Saturday and our home was SOLD by Monday!  Daniel was there every step of the way all the paperwork, inspections and move out. He is always ready to help and returns calls and texts within minutes!  He knows the area and can help find you a qualified buyer. He markets your home on every possible social media. The photos he takes of your home look amazing capturing all of the sought after features.

You don’t need to look any further to find an amazing, honest, intelligent, agent. Do yourself a favor a list your home with Daniel or allow him to help you find your new dream home!

— Vicky G.

Daniel Di Matteo’s outstanding knowledge of the Eastlake Trails housing market and superior marketing skills ensured our home sold for top dollar the very first weekend listed! Daniel’s excellent bi-lingual skills further enhanced his ability to present and negotiate to both English and Spanish only speaking populations. I highly recommend Daniel to any one looking to buy or sell their home.

— Kevin W.

Daniel’s marketing plan and knowledge were above and beyond what I expected. My house went on the market on a Friday and we had nine offers by Monday morning. Outstanding Realtor and highly recommended.

— Keith S.

Recently I was in the market to buy a new home. A friend of mine gave me Daniels contact information and said he was the best. Well she was right!   After viewing properties I sent him the list of the ones I wanted to see. On our first outing to go see properties he told me there was one I didn’t choose but he really wanted me to see it. Sure glad he did because that was the one I purchased after his savvy negotiation skills. He walked me thru every step of the process and answered all my questions.
If your in the market to buy or sell, I would highly recommend Daniel.

— Karen F.

Daniel is an AMAZING real estate agent! He was voted the #1 real estate agent and this is not unjustified. He listened to our needs and went above and beyond our expectations. He was very patient with us and did everything necessary to find us our perfect home. I have recommended him to all my friends and when it is time for us to buy and sell I wouldn’t even consider going with anyone else. I highly recommend Daniel and believe me you will not be disappointed.

— Jaymie G.

We couldn’t have asked for a better real estate agent than Daniel Di Matteo. Daniel Di Matteo was a great agent to work with. He took the time to really understand all of our needs and thus did not waste our time showing us properties he knew we wouldn’t be interested in, which we really valued. Daniel Di Matteo kept us up to date throughout the entire process from beginning to end with regular personalized check-ins, and made sure we were 100% satisfied with any decisions we made. The real estate market is tough to navigate and you can easily be taken advantage of if you don’t have the right agent on your side like Daniel Di Matteo. His expert knowledge on the market helped us secure the highly desirable property we wanted, while his incredible patience, attention to detail and frequent updates made the process very easy for everyone. When you work with Daniel Di Matteo, you will quickly see how great he is to work with and that he truly has YOUR best interest in mind. We will certainly work with him again!

My wife and I were just plain lucky and blessed to have stumbled across Daniel as our real estate agent.. We had just begun the process of looking for a new home and had no idea where to start or how to pick an agent. We had purchased our previous home through the builder so it was a much simpler process. We met Daniel at an open house and while there he took the time to walk me through the home selling and buying process and what to expect. Later that night my wife and I decided to go with him which was the best decision we could have made.

Because we were new to the process, we had a never ending list of questions which Daniel took the time to walk us through each one. I have a personality where I feel I need to have control and because of this I was calling Daniel in the very early morning hours almost every day to get status and the way forward with both the selling and buying process. It wasn’t until much later did I find out I was actually calling him so early that he hadn’t even left his house yet but he never acted frustrated with me and never asked me to not call him so early which shows the true professional that he is.

Ultimately Daniel was able to get multiple offers on our home that were over asking price within 12 days of listing and to my surprise, through his marketing and unparalleled abilities he was able to do this in the month of December which I had reservations about because I didn’t think much would happen around the Holidays. Daniel also found us an amazing new home for my growing family.

My wife and I were very concerned about the time tables and coordination it would take to sell our home and purchase a new home and get everyone moved without having to move to a temporary residence but Daniel took care of everything. He stayed in constant contact with the buyers of our home and was able to get us additional time for our house hunt, purchase and move.

If you are looking for a trustworthy real estate agent that has UNLIMITED patience, professionalism and talent beyond compare, Daniel Di Matteo is the person you are looking for. On the day he gave us the keys to our new home, I told him that he would be the only agent we ever use again.

I’d like to also add that its been several months since our selling and buying with Daniel was completed and he still contacts us just to ask how our family is doing and how the house has been for us.

— Tyler S.

There is a reason why Daniel Di Matteo was recently voted the#1 real estate agent in San Diego. When I first met Daniel, I knew he was the #1 agent in Chula Vista, and it was very obvious after meeting him why. He is highly motivated, diligent, always positive, patient and honest. Although he is extremely busy and will probably be even busier after this award, he always provides individualized attention. I highly recommend Daniel Di Matteo and his staff.

— Janet G.

I am writing this review in appreciation of the outstanding customer service provided by Daniel Di Matteo.

His relentless determination to find me the perfect home did not go unnoticed.  In today’s world where most salespeople go through the motions of trying to make a sale, never really listening to what the customer wants or needs, it is difficult to find someone that cares,  This is not the case with Daniel.  From the beginning, he wanted to know exactly what I was looking for and was able to show me homes that fit that criteria.  I must admit, I was not an easy customer as my criteria changed daily.  He is an active listener and took everything I said into account.

One day, he contacted me to tell me of a home that would soon be on the market.  “It’s everything you’ve been wanting.”, he said.  Sure enough, he was right and that day, I  bought my first home.

Daniel was with me every step of the way.  He was very knowledgeable and able to answer all my questions and walked me through the entire process, calling me regularly to keep me up to date.

He is reliable, dedicated, and professional.  If you are looking to buy or sell a home, I highly recommend working with Daniel Di Matteo, he takes customer service to a new level.

— Muriel D.

Daniel is THE best. I needed a property quickly and he reviewed all the options with me and gave me his opinion on the best floor plans, layouts and what was worth considering based on current market conditions. I was able to close quickly and am so happy in my new place. If you are looking for an agent, Daniel is great.

— Kara D.

When searching for a realtor to sell our home, Daniel was the only one who actually asked, “What are you looking for in a realtor?” Daniel’s professionalism is what really won us over. We haven’t known him for long because he sold our house in just 2 1/2 weeks! If experience, humility, razor sharp intelligence, sincerity, punctuality, patience, creativity and integrity are important to you, Daniel is the best. His assistant, Jess, is also super pleasant to deal with.

— Kathy P.

There is a reason why Daniel received so many awards and it’s because he’s a really hard worker and extremely patient, he will not only go the extra mile, he will go ten extra miles for you. After dealing with a couple of real estate agents, one of my wife’s coworkers talked a lot about what a great experience she had working with Daniel so we decided to reach out to him at one of his seminars. We were really impressed with Daniel, he would respond to our emails within an hour. We once thought he would stop working with us because we (like most of first time homeowners) were so picky about properties but not him, he would always be there with a great sense of humor and loaded with patience and information about the property and surroundings. He helped us negotiate the price and closing cost, and took us through the stressful process of closing. He also gave us the best advice I’ve ever had in the home buying business “you can change your house to what you want it to be, but you can’t change the location”. We are so thankful for those words of wisdom because our actual house is great for our family.

— Jose J.

If you’re looking for a very determined and patient realtor you found the perfect one. I definitely did my research while looking for someone to sell my home. He was very easy to talk to and always kept us up to date. He gave us his personal opinion and told us what he thought however he never did what he wanted he always listened to us. He always had our best interest in mind. Once our house was vacant he was able to find the perfect buyers for our home within two weeks. He was a delight and made the process very smooth and always always tolerated my constant need for knowing everything. I will definitely keep him in mind for future needs in Chula Vista and recommend him to others.

— Lila H.

I think I truly met Daniel for a reason. Out of all the realtors who came knocking at my door while we were thinking of moving off and on, the only one I had a feeling about was Daniel. He turned out to be the most loyal, honest, helpful, hard-working, genuine, person I found in the business. I would recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone looking for a realtor. He will fight for you and try his best to get you what you are truly looking for and then some. Best realtor!

— Michelle P.

Daniel is a very knowledgeable Chula Vista real estate agent.  I have been fortunate to know him for the last four years.  I love speaking to him with my real estate questions and concerns.

— Ryan M.


We truly believe we couldn’t have found an agent that would’ve worked harder for us than Daniel! He was always positive, patient, and enthusiastic that we would find our perfect home (and of course we did!).

He walked us through each step of the home purchasing process, explaining everything along the way (we were 1st-time home buyers & didn’t know much!)

We recommend Daniel to all of our family, friends & co-workers! You should definitely work with Daniel if you’re looking for a place to buy in San Diego!

— Natalie N.

We have had two great experiences with Daniel! He’s very easy to chat with and clearly knows his profession’s ins and outs, especially when it comes to real estate in Chula Vista.  Daniel helped me purchase my condo five years ago and he was always available to show me condos that I wanted to look at and to put in offers as soon as I was ready. The result, I ended up in my beautiful condo that I love. Recently, my husband and I considered upgrading to a larger home. I immediately went straight back to Daniel for real estate help.

Daniel is not only an excellent realtor but he is also a very good person who will look after his client’s best interest. In our case, he selflessly took the time to work with us to see what our condo would be worth in our market, to see if we could find many options in our price range to buy a home, and see if there were any homes in our area that we would be interested in purchasing. In the end, we were not ready to sell and decided to refinance instead. Daniel recommended us to someone to help us with the refinance and gave us tips and information to make the best choices for our decision.  This type of honesty, at the expense of losing a commission, is not normal amongst realtors looking to make money at their client’s expense. Daniel is an amazing real estate agent and we will definitely use him when we decide to sell our condo in the future.

— Kenna M.

If you are looking for a real estate agent but the BEST realtor, this is your go to guy.  I met him when I bought my home in Chula Vista from a couple Daniel Di Matteo represented!  Daniel sells homes all over San Diego but has great knowledge of the South Bay area.  He is thorough, professional, ethical, and most important follows through on every promise he makes.  He is creative, exhaustive with research and knows his stuff.  You won’t be sorry to list or buy your home with Daniel.  He will get you a great deal!

— William S.

I have worked with Daniel on every house I have bought and sold. Each time I have worked with him he has been nothing but the best!

He is always available and patient with me. He is always prompt and handles any issues I may have. Most importantly, he is trustworthy.

He always makes sure that my best interest is first and he has never tried to put me off to any deal. He makes sure the houses we look at are best for us and when something is not right he is open and upfront with letting us know.

He shows concern for my family’s well being and for that I will always do business with him and century 21.

— Ashlyn W.

Mr. Di Matteo always made himself available to answer questions and address any concerns regarding the transaction.
He was extremely accommodating with our household’s schedule and would drive out to our home to sign documents, rather than make us come to the office. He was extremely knowledgeable about the market trends in our area and was able to get us the best price for the property.
We are very pleased with the relatively easy sale of our home.

— Robert & Laura O’Brian

We can’t thank you enough for helping us sell our home.  From our first meeting, you were helpful and informative.  You answered all our questions and were patient with us throughout the entire process.  You were always available to meet with us, and kept us updated on a regular basis on the progress of the sale.  We never felt pressured into anything, and felt like every decision was our own.  The entire process was much more pleasant than we expected.  You took care of every detail and made the process easy for us.

We have happily recommended your services to all our family and friends (and even a few strangers!).  We can’t say enough wonderful things about you and will forever be grateful for your help.

Thank you!

My name is Jeremy G. and Daniel Di Matteo of Century 21 Award helped my wife Jaymie and I find and purchase our first home in May of this year. We first met Daniel on March 13th in his office located in Chula Vista, California.

Daniel was very knowledgeable about the area and all aspects of real estate. Daniel listened to our concerns and provided effective feedback and appropriate suggestions. He put together a plan and over the next few weeks showed us properties that not only fit our wants and needs but lifestyle as well.

Always courteous and professional, Mr. Di Matteo found us our perfect starter home expeditiously with everything we could have asked for. Communication with Daniel was constant and a pleasure. He kept us current of all aspects of the process and offered advice when necessary. This was very important to us as first time home buyers.

I would recommend Daniel Di Matteo to anyone including my friends and family looking to buy or sell property. He is a consummate professional who works diligently for his clients. I cannot express how grateful my wife and I are for Daniel’s help and expertise; I doubt we could have done it without him.

I recently met Mr. Daniel Di Matteo with Century 21.
My wife and I after talking to Mr. Di Matteo, immediately felt very comfortable talking to him. We also felt Mr. Di Matteo to be a very fine young man and a good family man.

Mr. Di Matteo in our opinion was right on target with our concerns and needs about our property at 206 S. 58th Street in San Diego. This property once belonged to my parents, so I was very concerned about how it was to be handled and sold.
Mr. Di Matteo zeroed in to our wants and needs to find us the kind of buyers we were looking for which led us to a sale and a very quick closing.

We are very grateful and have high praise for Mr. Di Matteo and the Century 21 organization. We know Mr. Di Matteo will continue to be very successful as a real estate professional.
May God bless and we wish you much happiness in the future.

For those who have experienced the home buying process you know how stressful it can be, for those who have not experienced the buying process take it from me the ride can be bumpy; however, it makes a world of a difference when you have a great realtor who is on your side helping each step of the way. Daniel Di Matteo was that and more for me.

When I met Daniel I was already a little over a year into going back and forth on finding the right home and getting the buying process started. Daniel took me under his wing and in less than 6 months, I was a proud homeowner. Daniel is a great example of what a realtor should be.

As a first time home buyer, I had so many questions, endless requests, and without a doubt I was so indecisive on which would be the right place for me. Daniel was patient with me every step of the way. Never once did Daniel make me feel as though I was a bother, he helped me with everything in such a timely manner without one complaint. If his pleasant personality was not enough, he was incredibly knowledgeable!

Even when I was finished with all of the transactions and the house officially belonged to me, Daniel still went out of his way to help me with my mailbox, my spare key, my garage opener, etc. He could have easily taken on the attitude of “you are not my responsibility anymore” but he did not, he stood with me down to my very last question.

Every first time home buyer should have a realtor such as Daniel. I was able to be open with him and he was very willing to help me understand things and even correct any confusion. He made me feel extremely comfortable and I can say it is because of him, I had the best first time home buyer’s experience I could have ever had.

We would like to formally thank you for all the time and effort (not to mention patience) that you had with us during our first home experience. Buying a house is a big deal, and it can easily convert from being an exciting life changing fun experience to a nightmare & overwhelming burden. Well, I might be exaggerating but I am glad to state that my husband and I are still married.

Having attended your workshop before the process of evenlooking for a home helped a great deal. Your knowledge of the field, professionalism and attitude makes home buying fun! Your dedication and time made a whole world of difference.

Never had we had such a pleasurable experience. You’re savvy, personable and know the market inside and out. We never could have gotten our dream home without you.

To reiterate, we are nothing but pleased with you and your expertise and we highly recommend you to everyone, hands down.

Thank you for all your time, patience, knowledge, phone calls, emails, weekends, appointments and especially super fast responses… it was totally worth it.

— Michelle & Jose Jasso

I never thought I’d be able to buy a home, but once I found the right realtor, it became a reality.
Daniel Di Matteo was friendly, knowledgeable and patient. I had no idea what I was doing and didn’t know who I could trust tofind me a house.

Daniel was very helpful in guiding me through this purchase while being honest about his opinions of the properties we viewed.
I had complete confidence in the property I chose and am very happy living in my new house.

I would highly recommend Daniel to my friends and family, and I will be calling him for all my real estate related business.

We are writing to express our complete satisfaction with Daniel Di Matteo, as a realtor. Throughout the entire process Daniel was professional, conscientious, and motivated. We always felt as though we were his only client.

We were very happy to have Daniel Di Matteo work with us tosell our home. Daniel scheduled all meetings and interactions at our convenience after work and on weekends. He provided us with outstanding advice about how to prepare our home for sale. He provided a profile on the house for people touring. He promptly returned all phone calls and had advertising in place as soon as possible. He worked hard, illustrated a great understanding of contract details, negotiation etiquette and documentation.

We really appreciated Daniel’s calm reassurance and expert advice throughout the entire process. Daniel was the outstanding professional we were looking for and having him work with us made a nerve-wracking negotiation a wonderful success!

We interviewed four different agents, some with little experience and some with several years of experience. In our interview with Daniel Di Matteo, it was very apparent he had significant experience and knowledge of the market and was quite knowledgeable of our area of San Diego.

In finalizing all the detail work involved in closing the deal and completing the contracts, Daniel was very helpful and was always on top of all closing requirements.

We highly recommend Daniel to anyone looking for a highly effective and reliable real estate agent.

Being a first time buyer I thought finding the right home for me would be stressful and time consuming but Realtor Daniel Di Matteo made the process virtually painless.

For almost a year I had used another Realtor and was completely unsatisfied with the service. Daniel on the other hand provided excellent and professional service.

Within three months I was able to move into my first home. Daniel took the time to listen to what I was looking for in a home. He explained the entire process of purchasing a home step by step.

Daniel was able to communicate well with the lender, listing agent, and escrow company to make sure that my home buying process was going well.
I especially liked how he worked around my busy schedule, after hours and weekends he was always available to assist me.

He is extremely knowledgeable and reliable and I have absolutely no reservation in recommending Daniel Di Matteo to anyone who is looking for a professional real estate agent who can make the home buying process an enjoyable one.

I am writing to express my pleasure with real estate agent Daniel Di Matteo, who represented me in our recent purchase of a single-family home.

Daniel Di Matteo guided me through the entire process, from loan pre-qualification to searching for houses to making the offer and closing the deal. I credit Daniel with a smooth, stress-free home-buying experience.

This is our first purchase of property, and it was a pleasurable experience.  Mr. Di Matteo is savvy, personable and knows the market inside and out. We never could have gotten our dream home without him.

To reiterate, we are nothing but pleased with Daniel Di Matteo and his expertise and we recommend him to everyone.

Regarding our short sale process on 68th St, we really appreciate your effort and perseverance in completing the closing.

There were many steps and updates of information to complete. We didn’t run into any problems and the closing went smoothly. We were recommended to you by our Tax professional and it was great working with you. This is also the reason we’ve referred your services to friends and family.  It’s a relief to have the short sale behind us.

Thank you.

I had the good fortune of working with Daniel Di Matteo on the sale of my last residence. He was very knowledgeable and made the process as easy as possible. In my situation I needed a short-sale approval from my lenders and he was able to obtain the approvals quickly. I initially was concerned with the timeline since I knew of others that were in my situation that had their property on the market for a year until they finally sold.

Daniel assured me that although there are a lot of uncertainties out of his control, he would be proactive in the areas where he could be. To say he was proactive would be a severe understatement. Even in this current real estate market Daniel was able to close the sale relatively quickly.

I was referred to Daniel by two other friends that each were in similar situations. I am glad I did and will not hesitate to give anyone else Daniel’s phone number for their real estate needs. There is no doubt in my mind that Daniel will provide excellent results whether you are in the market to buy, sell, conventional or non-conventional as well.

 Pat Russiano

I would highly recommend Daniel to handle your real estate needs.  Whether you are buying or selling, Daniel hears what your needs are and works within that need with no pressure.

Daniel is very well informed in the market and pays attention to the details all while keeping you abreast of how it will impact you.

Daniel cares about his clients as people first and will be with you every step of the way.  Daniel enjoys the journey of helping make your dream become your reality and is thankful to be able to be a part of it.

I am pleased to recommend the services of Daniel Di Matteo.  As I was at the brink of losing my home to foreclosure, Daniel was able to salvage my home so I could execute a short sale.

Unaware of the different options I had at the time, Daniel came to my home and explained to me in full details the options that were still available to me and the rights I had.  Daniel explained the processes that needed to take place in order for the sale of the house.  He also explained all the different tools that were available to him to make my house competitive on today’s market. Since our first meeting I was confident my house would be sold.

Throughout the sales processes, I was kept informed of any offers, obstacles, and advertisement changes that were made to my house. When there were documents that need my signature, Daniel was always flexible with time and location. As a first time seller, I always had a multiple of questions but Daniel was able to answer any of my questions. I believe he made the sale processes as painless as possible and will be a returning client.

This letter is regarding Mr. Daniel Di Matteo and the wonderful help that he has provided through the process of buying a home for my family and I.
Mr. Di Matteo has shown a lot of respect and effort into his job in helping me find a nice comforting home for my family.

I am very grateful to have chosen Daniel as my real estate professional because I am a single working mother with a full time job and Daniel demonstrated his support by showing me homes and understanding what was best for me and my family.

I usually get out of work late and know it can be rather difficult to view houses late in the evening, but Daniel always found the time to show me the properties I needed to see.
Daniel tried his hardest in helping me find the home best suited for me. He showed me all of his interest in taking me around, giving me his time, and answering every question or concern I had.

Mr. Di Matteo always made sure to show me what I was looking for. He also made sure to show me houses around my price range which I could afford to pay and to my liking.
I am very thankful for all his help and support he provided me while in search of my new home.
I am currently very happy living in our new home and I thank Daniel for helping me find this wonderful house in which we are very comfortable and pleased to have bought.

I would definitely recommend Mr. Di Matteo to my friends and family as their real estate professional because of the great service he provided me in finding the best home.


— Maria N. Arredondo

We really appreciate all the time and patience Daniel Di Matteo had with helping us find our home here in San Diego.

Being in the Military, my family was tired of moving and living in someone else’s home, and this is the first house we can call “our” home; Daniel made this milestone event go much smoother than expected.

Thank you Daniel, we recommend you to all interested home buyers.

— The Sánchez Family

I have recently purchased a home with the help of Daniel Di Matteo and his team. They were very helpful in every situation that occurred from the moment we began searching for condos to the close of escrow. I am a very last minute adjust to my schedule kind of person and Daniel was always available (or made himself so) when I needed something.

During escrow we encountered some issues, none of them being our fault or even in our control. No matter what the situation, Daniel was quick to find out the reasons for them and always stayed on top of getting them resolved so that we could move forward in our transaction. I had an outside loan officer who was not always on top of things an Daniel also made it a point to follow up with him when facing delays.

I have had a wonderful experience with Daniel and his team who have, in the end, made my experience in buying a home a pleasurable and happy one. I am very happy to say as a first time home buyer, when I decide to sell my condo and buy a house. I will be coming back to Daniel Di Matteo.

— Kenna Sablan

This letter is to recommend Daniel Di Matteo for an outstanding job in helping us find our home. He dedicated time and effort to find what we were looking for. He made the process very easy and painless for us. He listened to what we wanted and did not pressure us to look beyond the budget we set. He showed us many properties and was very patient with us throughout our search. He recommended the very best in the field to aid us, from mortgage broker to house inspector.

His advice and guidance through this process was invaluable. His attention to detail, knowledge of the field, patience and no-pressure approach were greatly appreciated. We can’t imagine going through this process with anyone else. At the end he got us the best property in the right area at the best price. The right man for the job.
