My name is Cari Southard and I am a Business Analyst of Escrow Services for a national title company. I have worked in the real estate industry in the Sacramento area for eleven years, six of those years working in escrow as an Escrow Assistant and Escrow Officer.
I met Matthew Stewart in 2003 through Bayside Church. We both attended the College and Career group where weekly bible studies were held in his home. We became friends and shared common interest due to our careers in the real estate industry.
In the time I have known Matthew, he has always been well known and respected. He is a man of understanding character and integrity. He leads by example and has a huge heart for helping others. He is honest, genuine, and sincere. Mathews positive attitude is infectious and one which is envied by many.
Working in the industry, I have many connections to realtors. Matthew was my first choice to represent me on my personal transaction out of the countless agents I know personally and had worked with professionally. He conducted himself in a professional manner and did a phenomenal job negotiation my short sale. He worked hard on my behalf and more than proved himself as the fantastic realtor I had always know him to be.
Matthew did such a wonderful job working for me, that I have referred him to many friends and coworkers over the years. Every one of them has come back to me singing his praises of what a wonderful job he did for them as well. Matthew had shared with me the DRE investigation that was taking place, and even with that knowledge, I was still comfortable and confident enough in him and who he is both personally and professionally to continue to refer him to trusted friends.
It would truly be a travesty to lose the services of Matthew Stewart’s real estate expertise in our community. We need more agents like him, who are willing to fight for the rights of consumers and will work hard with the best interest of their clients.
