On an October day, I called three different agencies to sell our gorgeous property with a small house on it. Hannah Matthews of Keller Williams was the first agent to come out. Two days later on a sunny afternoon she returned to take outstanding photographs of the rolling hills. The other agents hadn’t yet arrived to meet with us. Her accurate estimate of our property’s value was more in line with the rapidly increasing market value and we were very impressed with it’s high worth. Other agents indicated that there was little likelihood that the property would sell before the following spring. Hannah was very aggressive in getting it listed and showing it off on internet websites. Hannah got the job done.
We worked with Hannah in both the buying and selling of homes in Traverse City. It's been a really wild time in the market, and we had such a positive experience with her on both sides. We were lucky enough to purchase a beautiful home, and her communication and response time was top notch. We understood the next steps in the process, and she was extremely easy to work with. Beyond that, Hannah is just a lovely human being, we shared many laughs throughout the process which is always nice, since home buying is generally such a stressful process! We had a very tight turnaround time for both homes, and were able to get it done with Hannah's help. I would highly recommend Hannah for any buying/selling needs.
Barbara and I want to express how grateful we are for the professionalism you provided in representing us in the sale of our lot Alden, Michigan.
As I shared with you at our first meeting (which convinced us you were the person we needed to reach our new goal), plans change over time and new plans, goals, have to be implemented. Your ability to recognize the potential we had dreamed of and see what we saw when we first viewed this vacant spot, gave us encouragement this new goal was going to be achieved.
Your confidence in the market encouraged us to "stay the course," but be reasonable in our negotiating. You were right. I feel all of us were winners. Sellers, Buyers, and Realtors. We will all see this as a good day.
It has been a pleasure working with you on the sale my property on Lake Gitchegumee. Buckley, Michigan. I knew you were the right person for the task the minute I met you. You are a very professional person and I enjoyed being able to do most things concerning the sale online from my home.
The sale took longer than we had imagined because I had started at a high sale price, but you stuck right in there with me to the finish line. You made excellent recommendations and the property was sold without glitches.
Been a pleasure.
Working with Hannah Matthews, in our house-hunting search and the eventual purchase of our new home, was a smooth process because she knows the real estate business and the local area. She traveled great distances to show us properties in Manistee, Leelanau and Grand Traverse Counties. Additionally, her expertise guided us to a mortgage lender, home inspectors and repair professionals. Hannah always promptly returned our texts and phone calls which lessened the stress that accompanies purchasing a new home. Loved her easy going style.
Hannah was great to work with! She made the process easy from listing, to showings, to closing. She’s very helpful in answering procedural questions and assisting in documentation and logistics. We would recommend her services without hesitation.
Hannah Mathews of Keller Williams Realty is an outstanding Realtor. Hannah has helped us find two homes, one thirteen years ago and in 2020. We are very particular as to the type of homes we were looking for, location, and condition. Hannah was very accommodating, patient, helpful and honest. If you are looking for a good Realtor, call Hannah Mathews, you will not be disappointed.
We contacted Hannah Matthews when we wanted to sell our house as she came highly recommended by the agent who helped us buy the house initially (he is a buyer's agent only so he wasn't interested in listing the house). Hannah is very outgoing and I clicked with her immediately. She understood the somewhat unique nature of our house and in the listing she was able to highlight those aspects that made it stand out from the crowd. She took amazing pictures and added 99(!) of them to the listing. I believe that's one of the reasons we were inundated with viewings right away. We accepted an offer in less than two weeks. The buyer had some challenges with their financing and Hannah kept us informed the whole way so we were able to make the right decisions and get the sale done. Our sale happened during the height of the Corona virus panic and I firmly believe that without Hannah's knowledge and experience things would have been a lot more difficult!
Hannah is THE best! We just moved to the area and needed guidance. Hannah knows Traverse City and the market like the back of her hand PLUS she has a construction background! She was able help us find potential future concerns and negotiate a better price. We felt like we were family and finding the right house was just as important to her as it was for us. Not to mention she's fun to work with! This was not our first home buying experience, but it was our first with Hannah and we are so fortunate to have had her by our side! We highly recommend her and would use her again in a heartbeat (if she didn't already find us our dream home.)
I practice real estate law by trade and I wanted an agent who I could not only trust but one who had expertise and experience in helping me with any issues that even I would miss -- that's why I chose Hannah. She is extremely reliable, professional, and I highly recommend her services."
Hannah Matthews, at KellerWilliams, was our real estate agent when we were selling our house recently. She has a quick wit and an easy personality which was a perfect fit for my husband and me. It has been 22 years since we sold a house so we needed a little hand holding. Hannah was very accommodating. She walked us through the process of having open houses during the COVID 19 pandemic. She made all the signing of paper work a breeze by using emails and electronic signing. We sold our house in just two weeks! I would easily use Hannah Matthews at KellerWilliams again.
Hannah helped us tremendously in our efforts to buy a condo in Traverse City. She was patient during the search process and always on top of what was on the market. She was a great Realtor, but she went way beyond what may be traditionally expected of a Realtor. She guided us through the finishing of the building process by working directly with other Realtors, construction workers, and the builder. She helped us with advice and the tiniest of details. As we were out of town buyers, she went to the property, took measurements, supervised options, and made the process easy, fun and seamless. Finally, Hannah is fun and energetic and you could not ask for a better Realtor to help you buy or sell in the Traverse City area.
Mark and Patty
"Working with Hannah was so essential for buying and selling my first home, and she made everything a breeze! I was nervous, having never purchased a home before; she was very informative, and made sure I didn't make any rash or uneducated decisions. She knows the market incredibly well, and her years of experience really show. She's very easy to get a hold of, and makes it easy to get you into the home you want, or make you a good chunk of cash off the sale of your home!"
Thank you. I appreciated not only the updates in terms of the number of house viewings with multiple listing support, but also with your positive encouragement! You were also terrific with accommodating me in how I needed to reply in regards to official paperwork issues.
Thank you again Hannah for working with me and getting back with your responses and your staff’s support to accomplish the Closing on my Aunt Judy’s house!
Hannah Mathews’s is a one of a kind Realtor!
I remember one of our first meetings with Hannah, she spent an entire day being a tour guide to me and my wife showing us the Traverse City area besides showing us several houses.
We’ve lost count of the number of houses Hannah has shown us. Never throughout our search did Hannah’s energy waiver. Never was she pushy or make us feel we were taking up her time.
Hannah’s team created a computer search from what we’d told her we were looking for in a home. That was definitely a tremendous help.
With Hannah’s knowledge of the housing market in Traverse City, and understanding our likes and dislikes, she helped us reach our recent home purchase decision.
Besides being a one of a kind Realtor that I’d recommend to anyone in a heartbeat, Hannah has become our friend!
"Hannah and Wendy have been terrific in helping Mark and I find our home. It was especially challenging as we live in two different communities. Hannah and her assistant Wendy listened to our needs and narrowed our search quickly. Thank you both so very much! "
"It has been an absolute pleasure working with Hannah. We live out of state and wanted to purchase property in Northern Michigan. Hannah walked us through every step of the process and stayed in contact with us until our dream became a reality. We are extremely happy with our purchase. She is a blessing and we will recommend Hannah to anyone buying or selling property in Traverse City and the surrounding area! Thank you Hannah, we truly appreciate all you did to help us."
"Hannah is a kind and considerate real estate agent. She took into account the type of home we were looking for and gently pushed us to come up and see “that one house”. She knew what we were looking for! Her patience and persistence was an asset during a lengthy and unusual real estate transaction. We appreciate her knowledge of the area after being a long term 30 year resident of the Traverse City area. And the list of service providers she gave us is definitely helping our move- in transition.
Thanks Hannah so much for your help in purchasing our new home."
I have,worked with Hannah over 14 years and she has displayed the utmost caring and trust in all of our dealings. She never gave up on my hard to sell property. She is The Best!!!
" Hannah worked with us as the Buyers Agent recently on our home in Grawn Michigan. Hannah was a very effective communicator and very organized during a lengthy and complicated transaction. I was selling my home as a FSBO so I was working directly with Hannah. She did a great job representing her clients needs and keeping me informed on the transaction. I felt she was fair, honest and forthright, I would recommend her highly as a Buyers or Selling Agent."
"It’s been great working with you, as long as you are still selling houses you will be my Realtor! You provided excellent communication, very personable, kind, caring, and knowledgeable. You have gone above and beyond for what I’d expect from a Realtor! I’d say you are one of the best in town!"
"Hannah recently sold my property in Bellaire. Hannah drove from Traverse City to my property (about 1.5 hrs away) very soon after i contacted her. She was "on it"! Hannah kept me informed every step of the way. Even though I currently live in FL, it felt as if she was my next door neighbor. I would highly recommend Hannah!"
“We really enjoyed our experience working with Hannah. She has a thorough knowledge of the real estate business and was a pleasure to work with. She kept us up-to-date throughout the process, and made us feel like valued clients. Would definitely recommend her."
"Hannah Matthews took many photos showing our home in a very positive light and provided prospective buyers a very complete and informative binder. Hannah communicated with us an a regular basis, keeping us informed of progress. We would recommend her to other homeowners or buyers"
"Hannah Mathews was supportive, professional and knowledgeable throughout our encounter. She was a patient communicator especially with “ real estate virgins” like we were. We are grateful for her guidance!"
"Hannah Matthews was delightful to work with. I really felt like she understood us and wanted to take care of us throughout the whole process. Trust is very important and I know I can trust Hannah completely!"
"Hannah was recommended by a friend, whom we can't thank enough. Our home sale was not without bumps but Hannah expertly got us over them. She was very helpful with tips on how to decorate for a showing. Her listing and write up were done so well we had 3 showings in one day; and listing to closing took only 2 months. We intend to contact her in the spring to help us find a new home because she was so easy to work with and a fountain of information."
"Hannah's care and consideration for our financial well being was evident in her recommendation for Keller Mortgage. Her recommendation and continued research saved my husband and I over $4,000.
Hannah's personal attention and dedication to our family finding a home was present and evident throughout our whole journey. She traveled to multiple counties in the region, was available day and night. Her negotiation skills and knowledge of the trade ensured my husband and I closed thousands of dollars below the listing price while still making an efficient, competitive offer.
Things were done efficiently and with ease.
Hannah's openness, honesty and obvious passion to help buyers find their perfect home made our journey exciting, joyous and as stress free as possible."
"Very knowledgeable and professional. Went out of her way to insure we understood all aspects of the process. She provided referrals to home inspection professionals which were affordable and knowledge. All and all we were tremendously pleased with our interaction with Hannah. We would recommend her to others!"
"Hannah is always on top of her game. She anticipates buyers questions, does her homework yet lets people come to their own conclusions. She is delightful to work with and very professional."
Hannah and I did not know each other when this process began. She however took the trouble to keep feeding me leads of homes to look at. Eventually the right one came along when she was on vacation. At the expense of valuable vacation time involving numerous calls for several days she got the offer in on a timely basis and we were successful in obtaining the residence. Her knowledge and follow through were invaluable in making this purchase as easy as possible. Should the opportunity arise we would certainly use her for our real estate needs in the future
"Hannah is very knowledgeable in the local market, experienced, professional and kind. She helped me immensely through the processes of selling my home and made the stress of selling as minimal as possible."
"Hannah was very professional and accommodating to all of our needs throughout the process of selling our home. She and her assistant went over and above what is expected of a selling agent. Even watering our plants and flowers while we were out of town."
Hannah was wonderful to work with! We were working under a very tight deadline and within a month she was able to get us into a beautiful home. We were relocating about 4 hours so whenever we were able to find time to come into town, Hannah rearranged her schedule to make sure she could meet us. She was very kind and not pushy at all. Would recommend her to friends and family.
"Very professional and always followed up with answers to my questions. She knew my criteria for my interest in a condo and helped me through the whole process."
"Hannah listed our home as we were preparing to leave Michigan. She took excellent photos and wrote a great property description. Helped us as we were working long distance with notices of showings, interested buyers and finally the sale. Great commutator, kept us fully informed as to the progress of our sale through the closing."
"Hannah Mathews is simply the best! She helped us with every aspect of buying a house. We would ask her to help us again if the need arose. Her local knowledge, process expertise, responsiveness and negotiating skills were all top notch."
"Hannah took her time, helping my wife and I find a rental property, as we wanted to experience Traverse before deciding on where to buy. She was patient with us for over a year while we watched for the right properties, and most recently help us close on a lot exactly where we want to be. Hannah's knowledge of Old Mission is definitely an asset and helped us decide it was the place we wanted to live! Mike and Jill"
"Working with Hannah was such a wonderful experience. I was a first time home buyer and knew very little about the process. Hannah was very knowledgeable and did a great job educating and guiding me every step of the way. She was very patient with me the whole time. She made herself available 24/7 for any questions or requests that I had and was always available on short notice for home viewings. Hannah was a pleasure to work with and I will absolutely be recommending her!"
"Hannah is a top-notch professional realtor. She is very conscientious about providing a service that results in a favorable outcome whether you are buying or selling property. She consistently returns phone calls or emails promptly. She genuinely cares about her clients and is willing to go the extra mile to make your move go smoothly during what could be a stressful time. She is a hard worker and is dedicated to her clients. We are very grateful for all the time she spent with us and highly recommend Hannah when you need a real estate professional."
Hannah is professional, friendly, has excellent follow-up and is extremely detail oriented. I couldn't have done it without her - a first rate, experienced real estate professional!
SKurta - Traverse City
"I began working with Hannah early in my home buying process. Hannah is a true professional, patient and courteous to work with. She assisted me in negotiating modifications to my kitchen which were very important to me and made recommendations to minimize costs during the process. I highly recommend Hannah whether you are buying or selling, and I will definitely rely upon her in the future."
Satorgerson– Traverse City, MI
Absolutely amazing realtor. Hard working and very knowledgeable. We were completely blown away from her attention to detail and customer service. Will use Hannah again and recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
natemcmanus – Traverse City, MI
FIRST AND ONLY positive experience with a Realtor! We dealt with several realtors buying & selling our first house as well as helping my parents sell their house and was always so disappointed (or offended) that when it came to looking for vacant land to build on in Kingsley we didn't even seek out a Realtor. Hannah was the selling Realtor on this listing and after chatting with her on the phone a couple times we made her our buyers agent as well! There's a lot of things to look out for and check into when purchasing land to build on and Hannah was ALWAYS right on top of it. She was excellent at communicating with us and ALWAYS keeping us in the loop. By the time we closed Hannah felt like a family friend. 10/10 would recommend with full confidence!
Nick & Kaitlyn
I just purchased a home in the city limits of TC. Hannah had great knowledge of the different neighborhoods and values. Her expertise in the process ensured that I was able to make a competitive offer, but I was still able to negotiate on my offer. She also has many reliable contacts for other services, such as a mortgage brokers and contractors, which saved me time in finding these vendors. I would recommend Hannah to help you find a home!
Jan 13, 2017
Hannah handled the sale of our Old Mission water view home with a very high degree of professionalism. This property had been listed by another Realtor for over a year, and she was able to sell it within a couple months without a major price reduction. She would receive my highest recommendation.
u074036 – Traverse City, MI
We contacted Hannah because she represented the sellers of a house we were interested in buying. She is warm and personable, and extremely knowledgeable about the area but also the state. If she didn't have an immediate answer to a question, she would seek out the answer and get back to us right away. She was SO NICE and helpful that we wanted to ask her about things that had nothing to do with real estate. She went above and beyond in her role and made the purchasing process as easy and stress-free as it could be. If I were selling or needed a buyer-broker, Hannah would be my realtor choice!

Hannah was not the first real estate agent I interviewed, but I decided to go with her because she had negotiated the sale of another unit in my condo complex for above asking price in a timely fashion. She is very professional, personable and fun to work with. I expected the sale process to go slowly during the Christmas holiday season, but she found a cash buyer at a more than fair price. I was very impressed with her diligence working on my behalf. I had already moved across the country and was completely comfortable with leaving my property in her capable hands.
jnerone1946 – Suttons Bay, MI
Hannah helped us land our dream home and sell our condo in record time! She made the buying/selling process fun & was by our side every step of the way.
leslieanne1239 – Suttons Bay, MI
Hannah was such an immense asset to us, not only in helping us with our home-buying, but was patient, kind and offered so many properties for us to consider that we may not have otherwise known about. Her expertise and responsiveness were above and beyond and as we purchase more properties in the future, there is no one that we would turn to other than Hannah Matthews.
Amy Carroll – Beulah, MI
Hannah's knowledge, experience and expertise were crucial in our search for our lake house. She listened to our needs and was available to us whenever we needed her (even more crucial since we are from out of town). Hannah really went to bat for us at the negotiating table. We highly recommend Hannah and Keller Williams!
Oct. 11, 2016
Hannah was great to work with. She is very knowledgeable and professional. We were moving from down state and Hannah arranged multiple listings on several occasions for us to see. She listened to our needs and we were able to find the perfect home for us! We have recommended Hannah to several people and will continue to do so. Hannah is terrific!!

We loved working with Hannah. What impressed us most, besides her sparkling personality, was her professionalism & preparation. Prior to working with Hannah we had problems with not being informed of new listings in a timely manner, switching us over to a "substitute " realtor (on our first appt.!), and not being prepared or knowledgable about our viewings (we would drive up to see several properties on weekends, so this was critical). None of that happened with Hannah. Her dogged determination to find us the house of our dreams was impressive. We highly recommend her!
user31366859 – Traverse City, MI
Hannah is a very hard working realtor with exceptional knowledge of the housing market in the Traverse City, MI area. She makes good recommendations throughout the selling process, and is fun and easy to work with. I was very pleased to have her as my realtor and friend.
My husband and I moved from metro Detroit last year and Hannah was a huge help in finding us the perfect house in Traverse City. She was able to work with us from afar and also dedicate time to physically look at several houses at a time when we were available. She's also super friendly and knows so much about the area.

Hannah did a great job selling my home. She was always prompt in communications as I lived two states away. Her attention to the needs of the outgoing tennant showed her concern for all parties involved. She was quick in getting the necessary paperwork done in a timely fashion allowing the new owners to get into their home early. I highly recommend her to sell your home.
josephklatt70 – Traverse City, MI
"As a professor of marketing at Central Michigan University, I use Hannah as my example of what it means to be a professional salesperson, one who delivers top-notch service both before and after the sale. She has many outstanding characteristics, but her strengths definitely include the following:
Honesty and personal integrity: The only salesperson I have fully trusted!
Prompt and effective service.
Incredible knowledge of the local real estate market.
Courteous, friendly and just a likeable person."

"Hannah Matthews has been our Realtor over the last 6 years. She has always been prompt, courteous and friendly. Our first contact with her made a great impression as she answered her phone while on vacation! No voicemail or leave a message! If she was unable to answer, she would always back to us promptly. It we ever decided to look for another home or need to see our recent purchase in Traverse City, she will be our Realtor."

I purchased my very first home with Hannah! I absolutely loved how informative she was, and her attention to my needs was impeccable. As a first time home buyer, I was in need of a lot of direction. She assisted me with all aspects of the search, helping me to effectively narrow down my options. She fought to get a great price on the home I chose, and insisted the sellers accomplish many tasks before I moved in. Even now, when I need home improvement advice, I call her - she knows all the expert contractors in the area.
troutydude84 – Interlochen, MI
"Hannah Matthews is a gold mine for a buyer or seller or Real Estate. Hannah sold my condominium and during the process she rented my property out and supervised the sale of furniture. Since I live outside the state, Hannah constantly checked the property giving me peace of mind.
Hannah pays attention to details and is extremely efficient. This became evident throughout the sale and the closing process.
Hannah has the uncanny ability to make proper suggestions to show off and enhance your property. You would be most fortunate to allow her to represent our endeavors."
"I would like to the opportunity to express my appreciation for all Hannah’s hard work in marketing my house. There is no doubt that her diligent efforts and professionalism were responsible for obtaining an offer given the current economic status of the housing market.
I have consistently found her to be pleasant, sincere and honest in all of our dealings. It is because of these qualities, that I am confident that we may work together in the future."
"I had the privilege of working with Hannah through the sale of my home and she tireless in her efforts to sell. She stayed in contact with me through the long process of my Short Sale. She proved to be a powerful ally to have in my corner. I found Hannah to be professional, tenacious and empathetic to my situation. Throughout the process she was steadfast and always very supportive.
I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Northern Michigan."
Traverse City, MI
"I am pleased to write a letter of recommendation for Hannah Matthews. She has been my exclusive Realtor since 2007. As a seller, Hannah listed my house in the worst economic times. She worked diligently to find a buyer. Hannah created a wonderful marketing package and brought in many potential buyers. Her dedication and experience demonstrated her exceptional knowledge. I have always felt comfortable communication any concerns and she has had my interest in mind. As her client I always knew I could trust her and that is crucial to me. I has been a true to pleasure work with her and she will always be my Realtor."
Traverse City, MI
"My wife and I recently bought a house Hannah Matthews was our Realtor. She was up-front and never pushy. When we found a home that we liked, Hannah pointed out short comings and recommending that we move on even though she could have made a sale!
When we finally found a house we liked, it wasn’t even on the market. She negotiated a price with the sells at our first meeting which was far less than the seller wanted to sell for.
My wife and I are living in the home our dreams and we feel fortunate that Hannah was our agent. In our opinion, you can’t do better than Hannah Matthews."
Traverse City, MI
"When we contacted Hannah Matthews we had a downstate home to sell. One of the homes she showed us fit perfectly and we made a contingent offer. She encouraged us and good fortune shined and the downstate home sold.
We smoothly moved through the process and closed on our new home. Upon moving we encountered glitches hiring local movers. Hannah came through and found us help. She was a pleasant business partner and she knows the community."
Traverse City, MI
My wife and I would like to thank you and Keller Williams for the outstanding work put forth during the selling cycle of our home, and previous buying cycle as well. Your commitment to excellence showed through, as your hard work building the website information detail and providing excellent pictures (42 total) which showed searching buyers a close-up view and a bird’s eye view of the entire property and setting. Your steady hand of guidance and giving recommendations gave us the assurance that we needed to make the right decisions and make the entire selling process successful and rewarding, in more ways than one.
Hannah, you became a personal friend to us as well which made us very comfortable in knowing that you are the person we could trust and depend upon, without a doubt. Your integrity, trustworthiness, loyalty, work ethic, and kindness all come together to make you one of the best Realtors today, that we have ever been associated with. Thank you again, for helping buy and sell our home, as it has been a pleasure working with you and Keller Williams.
Kind Regards,Tom and Bev Gilbert

Hannah really helped us find exactly what we were looking for in our new home.
We relocated from the Detroit area to Traverse City and she not only assisted us with finding our perfect house, but also with learning more about the area in general. We couldn’t be happier with our experience of working with her and would definitely recommend Hannah to anyone looking to buy or sell a house!
We would recommend Hannah to anyone who is looking for a Realtor who understands what the buyer is looking for, is professional, has great knowledge of and years of experience in the area and is current on new properties hitting the market. In our year long search for a house, she was always available to us, nonjudgmental and sensitive to our needs. As out of town clients, on occasion we had to trust her judgment to make offers on houses we didn’t have time to see directly before they received offers. She’s simply the best!
