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.

"“We were absentee landlords when we decided to sell our rental home. Matt took care of all the details, from maintaining the lawn, getting a cleaning crew, staging the house and of course listing and selling. The best thing to us was that he promptly returned all calls and emails, and kept us completely up to date on what was happening. We would happily recommend Matt for any others realty needs”"
-Johm and Joan, Client
"We hired Matt from a recomendation mainly for his negotiating skills and he came through for us as promised! Also Matt had the experience and knowledge for the economic issues in the housing industry and the best timing for the sale. He was very familiar with our particular area which helped us set an asking price that was competitive and accurate. Last but not least he is very likable, after our first open house many neighbors commented to me how personable and welcoming he was to them. We highly recommend Matt."
-Neil Fissel, Client
"Unequivocally, the best real estate agent that I have ever had. He is professional, knowledgeable and personable beyond expectations. He explained the process clearly and communicated very well with us and the other agent. He made himself available to answer any question that we had. He anticipated our needs and fulfilled them. Bottomline, he sold our house for an excellent price and he helped us to negotiate and find the house that we had been looking for. Matt is a find that will work for you with respect and a sense of humor while he upholds the best in his profession. My only regret is that we didn't have him to sell our home many years ago. He is our agent for the rest of our lives."

"To whom it may concern: While going through some very difficult financial times during 2011, I came to the realistic decision to sell my home. A friend of mine highly recommended Matt Tenczar at Alain Pinel Realty. When I first met Matt I was worried about the whole process of a short sale and the nightmares of bad credit. Matt was able to explain the whole process and put my mind at ease. He walked me through every step of the process, I never felt alone, he was always a phone call away and believe me I had plenty of questions. Matt is an effective communicator he left not one stone unturned his answers were always reassuring. Matt continued to ensure me that everything would work out and he kept me up-to-date on any changes that were relevant to the sale of my home. Matt's creativity, resourcefulness, and ability to sell the house in such a short amount of time were not only painless for me but a blessing, the house sold within a week. Matt Tenczar’s sensitivity, diligence"
"Matt is a consummate professional! We highly recommend him without reservation. --Matt was invaluable in providing answers to key questions about what sells (types of floor coverings, colors, etc.) while we were finishing our remodel. --Then he assisted in staging for maximum impact. --His photos on the listing and MLS truly showcased our beautiful home to maximum advantage. --He ensured that our home appraised for full selling price, despite being priced considerably higher than the existing comps by working closely with us to have all the data to support the higher price, then working with the appraiser to ensure he was fully acquainted with all the upgrades and improvements. --He provided superb advice during the negotiating process that made all the difference in our selection among competing offers. --The escrow process was simple, clean and problem-free. All in all, you could not ask for a better real estate agent or transaction! We sold for full price in under a week!"
"Matt was a great help in guiding my wife and I through the complex process of buying a home in California, being new residents in the country. It would have taken us much longer to truly understand the mechanics of the process without his expertise and patience. We also appreciated very much Matt's local expertise in giving us his honest assessments of various potential houses we considered prior to the eventual house we purchased. Matt has a great relationship in the industry which also helps when it comes to negotiations with vendor agents. We would definitely recommend Matt to anyone."
"Matt was a fantastic realtor! He was patient and knowledgeable and took time to answer all of our questions, no matter how big or small. When we first started the home owner process we did not have a realtor. We called him about a house we saw he had for sale and it was already sold but he was very helpful and answered all of our questions even though he wasn't our realtor. My husband and I got a really good vibe from Matt, so we decided to meet with him to see if he should be our realtor. After we met with him we felt that he was honest and knowledgeable and we chose him. He specializes in houses in Santa Clara County and my husband and I were looking more in the San Mateo County area, but Matt still took us on and did a great job with working with us to find our first home. He walked us through every step of the way and was always available if we had questions, he definitely looks out for his clients best interest. If I ever buy another house I will definitely use Matt and I would re"
"First, let me begin by mentioning what a difficult person I am. I am high-strung, anxious and my expectations of people I hire are CRAZY-HIGH. Type A to the max. Add to that the stress of preparing a home for showings and selling... and you get a person on the verge of a meltdown :) Matt was phenomenal to work with. Not only did he price our house correctly, take phenomenal photos and have such a deep understanding of the market, but he recommended a DREAM lender/mortgage broker who could help us with a VERY DIFFICULT loan situation, and told us exactly what we needed to do to to the house to get the most money from it. As a result, we received WELL-OVER ASKING price very quickly. Now, of course, all homes are different, and there are no guarantees, however Matt will identify the best selling points of your home, and find the best possible way to market them. Additionally, he even tried to help us find some leads for a new home to buy out of his immediate area of coverage, even thoug"
"We had interviewed other real estate agents to list our home and chose Matt because of his experience and professional approach. Matt explained every aspect of the home selling process and kept us informed every step of the way. We Highly recommend Matt (and his team) for anyone interested in buying or selling a home."
"Matt was our selling agent. Result was $10K over asking price with the shortest escrow term I have ever seen. Additionally he secured for us a free 30 day rent back. Superior internet marketing of our property combined with Matt personally shuttling documents in his car for the lower tech parties to our deal inspired real confidence. Our property was a condo and he made sure buyers knew it afforded the least expensive access to the local acclaimed school district otherwise encircled by substantially more expensive detached houses. Special mention for his talents as a writer on the flyer: concise; colorful; compelling. He looked like a biology professor on an expedition with his camera gear including a tripod, snapping photos in, out, and around the property. You don't see that every day. If you are liquidating real estate assets in Matt's service area you will be derelict in your duties not hiring him."
-Sam Jones, Client
"Matt was well versed and skillful in all aspects of selling our house. He walked us through the process in a clear and consise manner. He handled numerous details we hadn't even thought of and spared us much confusion and frustration. Matt continued to work on our behalf even after escrow had closed and we had moved out! His calm, polished demeanor was just what we needed to counter the stress of moving."
-Pauline Rudy, Client
"Matt did an excellent job from the beginning: He surveyed the selling-buying situation around the property we were selling and gave us price ranges with great accuracy. He explained the selling process very thoroughly, from showing to closing. He recommended not to spend money on unnecessary things, like painting the house, instead he suggested staging it. And it worked! During the closing process he was always in contact with us explaining all the details of the closing process and the meaning and importance of each piece of paperwork we had to sing on. I surely recommend him to anyone selling or buying property in San Jose."
-Juan Adames, Client
"Matt understood the real estate market very well and did a good market research about our area. He proposed a right listing price for our house to sell. He also helped us in various things which we would prefer not handling by ourselves."
-Jane Xu, Client
"We are very lucky to find Matt as our realtor specially after firing 3 previous realtors and I had almost given up on getting a good realtor. We met Matt coincidently during an Open House we were visting. We liked the home but had just fired our previous realtor so didn't know how to proceed. Matt was hosting the OH and was the Seller's agent. Although we did not end up buying that particular home but did end up getting a great realtor. Matt was supper helpful and knowledgeable throughout our home buying process and even after that. We were actually very impressed with Matt's quick responses and help with our new home troubles even after the whole process was over. He is very thorough with the market and property information. He is very good at construction/home inspections/termite related information that a first time home buyer might never know or just not understand. He has got great contacts and has got a great reputation amongst his co-realtors. As a first time home buyer we r"
