As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

"Matt was AMAZING to us throughout our home buying experience. Matt helped us in finding our first home, and assisted us with every step along the way. He was always two steps ahead of the game, and further had a back up plan if we did not fall in love with a house during the searching process. Matt was very professional, and was always responsive when we had questions. We loved working with Matt, and would 100% recommend him!"
-Brandon Steffanus, Client
"Matt was very helpful and patient throughout the whole process of house hunting and the closing process and always had an answer for our questions. I would recommend him to anyone."
-Nicholas Guyer, Client
"Highly recommend. My second house with Matt 5 stars all around! Very easy to work with and someone is always available to get a hold of. Great experience again"
"Being first time home buyers Matt and his team did a great job in helping my husband and I throughout the process. Everything went very smoothly and it was overall an easy process."
-Sarah Carbin, Client
"Matt was the consummate professional throughout the whole process. Even though I told him on several occasions there was "no hurry" to answer my questions, he was spot-on every time. There is not much that I can add that hasn't already been said in other reviews other than to say that if I ever have to look for another home (hopefully not), I would not even consider contacting another agent. "
-Mike Sbarro, Client
"Matt was highly professional and readily available 24-7. He took care of our needs, and he was always friendly. He explained the complicated financial parts of the mortgage in an understandable manner. He opened his schedule to show homes to us with very little notice. He was knowledgable about VA loans, and what homes would pass a VA shine inspection."
-Jeremy Andrew Hall, Client
"Matt is extremely professional and hard working. From the minute we met him, we knew he was the best choice to sell our house. He always made us feel like we were his top priority. I would highly recommend him and his team."
-Mark Marosek, Client
"From the beginning meeting Matt while he was not our realtor at the time was hard working and willing to go the extra mile to show us houses. Matt and his team were great to work with and we would highly recommend him to anyone that needs a great realtor."
-Chuck White, Client
"Matt is very prompt and honest. Very pleasurable to deal with and won't leave you disappointed. His interactions are friendly and straightforward, won't leave you to decipher a stream of buzzword or jargon like some other realtors."
-Dan Billings, Client
"Matt has been super patient and helpful through the 14 houses we looked at until we found the one. He was very knowledgeable of the area and really helped us get a great deal on the house. He always did research for the houses we viewed to make sure they fit our criteria. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor to guide us through the tough experience of buying our first home."
-Aimee Nail, Client
"Matt is truly awesome! We were relocated with our company, and felt totally overwhelmed by the whole home sale process. Matt was realistic AND encouraging, and totally chill! He returned our calls, answered our questions, and was incredibly low stress. Our house sold in basically a month for more than we asked, and I didn't die of a stroke. God bless Matt!"
-Arielle Nieman, Client
"We decided to sell our first home, never having sold a house before we were nervous. We reached out to Matt for help. We scheduled a meeting for a few days later. Matt answered all of our questions and cleared up all of our areas of concern. He helped list our house that evening, we had a scheduled walk through a for the I following morning about an hour after he left, and we sold with a full price offer the next afternoon (less than 24 hours later). He then spent the immediately following weekend showing us around 20 homes in the area we were looking in. He never pushed us in any direction, he gave an honest opinion when asked, and was very helpful throughout the entire process. Lastly, he was very courteous and professional, and extremely easy to get ahold of via call, text, and email. We had responses within an hour in almost every case. HIGHLY recommend. Thanks Matt!"
-Kevin Stacey, Client
"Matt is an incredible realtor! It took me about 3 years to buy a home and he was patient and understanding the entire way! The degree of professionalism and respect he brings to the table is unmatched. He has perfected his trade! From the knowledge he brings to the table to the quick response times, he is truly a master of his craft. I would not hesitate to refer him to family and friends!"
-Matthew Rodriguez , Client
"Matt is an extremely professional and knowledgeable realtor. He was very quick to answer all our phone calls and emails throughout the process of buying our home. He had great advice in finding a mortgage lender. The process went so smooth from start to finish we put in our offer and closed in less than 2 months. I believe it was because of his expertise that things went without and glitches. He is very kid and family friendly. It is clear that he loves what he does and is committed to helping people find a good fit for their home. I highly recommend him!"
-Ben Oliver, Client
"Matt was the lead agent for the sale of our home at 107 Lauch St. Matt worked long and late hours to get our home sold. His communication and responses were quick and prompt and he always gave us advanced notice for home showings. I would say in all over a two month period Matt and his team showed our home over 30 times including two open houses. Matt and his team will go above and beyond to meet their commitments for home sales. I would recommend them to anyone in the Pittsburgh area looking to sell their home."
-Thomas Kindred , Client
"Matt was the Buyers agent for our recent home purchase. I was living out of a hotel and didn't know my way around, and he picked me up and drove me around introducing me to the area as we went from home to home. He gave me his opinion when asked and actually recommended us not going for a house that would have given him a higher commission. He has been honest with us for the sale and very easy to work with and contact. I will use him again if we ever purchase another house in the area."
-Michael Maness, Client
"Matt was an awesome realtor and helped us find the right house! He was very professional, knowledgeable of the area, and was patient with us. We never once felt "pressured". I would highly recommend Matt as a realtor! You will not be disappointed!"
-Corry Rossoman, Client
"As senior citizens, we have purchased several homes during our 43 years of marriage. Of all the R.E. agents we have encountered, Matt is the best. He is a true professional who is able to listened and patient enough to let us reach decisions. As his client we felt he always had our best interest at the top of his agenda. Working with Matt was a pleasant and productive experience."
-Gary and Karen Johnston, Client
"Matt has helped us find two great homes and also sell our last home. Matt has always been professional but at the same time a great friend through the process, and always available when you need him!"
-Danny DeDominicis, Friend
"Matt was extremely helpful throughout the entire buying process. This was our first home purchase and from our first meeting until the day we closed Matt let us know exactly what to expect. With Matt's honest and to the point guidance the process was less stressful and easier than expected. It felt like Matt was working 24 hours a day exclusively for us, there was never a time he wasn't available by phone or email. I would highly recommend Matt for any real estate needs, and we will absolutely be referring him to all of our family and friends."
-Matt Nebel, Client
"Matt Ohlsson was my realtor for the purchase of my first home. He was great, he was able to make the lengthy process seam easy. If I had a question at any time of day he would quickly get me an answer. "
-Tyler Biedenbach, Client
"Matt was our realtor to both sell our old home and buy our new home. He was always available to answer questions or deal with issues.(and we had a few) This is a great asset when working with someone. And even when the process was done, he still said that if there was anything he could do to help us just let him know."
"Matt Ohlsson is a REAL person and understands the needs of others. He is helpful and knowledgeable, He does his job so well that it seemed like a friend was with me the entire way. Thank you Matt!"
-Andrew O'Leath, Client
"Matt is a realtor and represents my In-Laws in the sale of their house. He is a very responsive and kind individuals who works hard in assisted my older In-Laws with this sale. We are out of state and still Matt keeps in touch with me to ensure that if there is anything that needs done we can travel to PA to get it done. His concern for people is what stands out to my wife and I. Well done Matt. The house went on the market Saturday and we had a contract on it the next day. While going through the inspection process, the Buyer had issues with financing and the house has again become available. I spoke to Matt on the first of August at 10:30 pm regarding this matter and what steps we needed to take. Matt was most concerned with how my In-Laws would take this not so good news. You can find anyone who will work and do their job, but few who will actually care for those they are serving. Matt shows that kind people still do exist. I pray Matt never loses this quality."
-Stephen Nesbitt, Client
"This was our first home purchase and we couldn't be any happier about the outcome and our experience with Matt. We were shopping in a market we were largely unfamiliar with and relied heavily on our Matt's knowledge and guidance. His straightforward approach was useful in helping us find the right property for our needs and budget. The comfort of having an expert to work with made navigating an unfamiliar process much easier and less stressful. Matt helped us begin our search by identifying neighborhoods that would meet our short and long term needs. We were able to search confidently knowing that the area we were searching would suit our personal, professional, and recreational interests. Another form of confidence came from searching in a market where our investment would remain stable with the likelihood of increasing in value over time. We heavily researched Matt's recommendations and found him to be completely competent while adding additional context specific to our search. The"
-Mark Davison, Client
"Matt made an otherwise overwhelming experience work out for us. We could not imagine trying to get over all of the hurdles that came our way without his help. More than once he addressed issues that came up that stressed us out with professional ease. He is always available and puts the needs of his clients first, even offering to be a sounding board when we needed one. He made the experience a good one and I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home or commercial property. We'd spoken with a couple of other agents but none compared to Matt right from the first meeting."
-Elin Bleau, Family
"I could not imagine a better real estate agent. Matt made a nightmare of a process go as smoothly as possible based off of his experience, expertise, availability and excellent communication. He stood by us from start to finish and he showed time and time again that he is professional and knowledgeable about real estate. He shows great patience and quickly addresses the concerns and needs of his clients. He puts his clients before himself and that is something I did not expect to find in a real estate agent. Consider yourself warned if you chose to go with a different real estate agent."
-Chris Hodgen, Client
"Couldn't ask for a better, more knowledgeable agent to help me through the process of selling our home. We received multiple offers after only a couple of days on the market, and we sold our house for over asking price! Very responsive, always answered my calls and never had to wait for him to get back to me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a Pittsbugh area agent, and will certainly use him again."
-Brian Franklin, Client
"Matt was matched to my husband and I through the USAA Movers Advantage program and was awesome throughout our search for our first home! Matt helped us narrow down the area and types of homes we wanted to look at. We never once felt that Matt was trying to push us toward one property or steer us away from anything. He was always easy to reach, either by phone, text, or e-mail. After looking at numerous houses, Matt was most helpful once we started the process of putting in an offer on a house. He answered all of our questions and instilled us with confidence that no matter what, he would always do what was in our best interest."
-Rachel Trimble, Client
"Matt's the best realtor we've ever worked with -- and we've worked with at least half a dozen, all of whom were supposedly top-notch. Matt and his office staff went above and beyond to sell a property that we'd been trying to sell for years -- and got us our asking price in record time, with far less stress than we anticipated. Though we had a great house to sell, four years of previous efforts in all directions had given us nothing but frustration -- and believe me, we'd tried everything-- from traditional listing with major-name realty companies, to the FSBO approach, to minimalist realty company participation where they enter your property on the regional multi-list and then you do everything else. So in the wake of previous offers that had fallen through and major disenchantment with the entire industry, we decided to go with Matt Ohlsson of Coldwell Banker, mostly on the strength of his can-do attitude, obvious knowledge of the market and overall positive approach. We soon reali"
-Lillie Wilson, Client
"Matt helped me find and buy my home almost 6 years ago and I could not be happier! He will answer all calls/texts/emails at any hour of the night/day. He is extremely informative and helpful. He assisted with finding a home inspector, taking care of approval for the mortgage and helping with negotiations. We closed on our home in less than 30 days! Matt has continued to prove his loyalty and dedication by working with some of my friends and family. When we are ready to move to a bigger home there is only one person I would call to sell our home and assist with the purchase of a new one... Matt! Thanks again for all your hard work!!!"
-Samantha Orlowski, Client
"I have given Matt five stars in all categories because he truly is all of these."
-Lori Altrudo, Colleague
"Matt and the other professionals he recommended were key in helping my husband and I buy our first home. I called them the "dream team" for most of the process. Everything went so smoothly that I still don't understand the problems that almost everyone else I know encounter. Find a network of professionals and listen to them. Matt is one of those professionals!"
-Kim Gosel, Client
"I have known Matt for over 7 years and have always been able to completely confide in his trust, knowledge and expertise as part of Coldwell Banker. His extremely cooperative, honest and upfront ways of doing business really make you understand the home buying process as well as your options, good and bad, so you are confident in the decisions you make and sure they're the right ones. I would and have recommended Matt Ohlsson to many family and friends when considering their home buying purchases."
-Jennifer Troup, Client
"Very helpful, sold in under the expected time. Always available when needed."
-Jim Danylo, Client
"Matt was able to sell our home and help us buy a new one within a 30 day period. He had the expertise to list our home to sell for what we wanted in a quick time period and he was always on call for us no matter what time to keep us updated with the buying and selling! I know he is the first name and number that I get out anytime I hear someone talking about selling their home or buying a new home."
-Matt Pournaras, Client
"Matt did a great job. Got the price I was looking for and I was under contract twice in less than a week (first offer did not work out). He actually help me buy the house almost 5 years ago, that is why I went with him again. I hope to not move for a long time, but if I do Matt is my first call."
