George Matthews is a premier New York City luxury real estate salesperson with an extensive and successful background in finance and a devotion to client service that is truly unparalleled.
Described as a consummate professional, George's real estate success is driven by his deep understanding of the New York City market, attention to detail and sharp negotiating skills, coupled with a friendly and engaging personality. His passion for the business of New York City real estate began earlier in his career as a banker transacting deals with developers and investors. It was further nurtured by his family’s success in the development of high-profile luxury rental and condominium projects in downtown Manhattan.
As a real estate professional, George is devoted to providing a consultancy approach, maintaining laser-like focus on exceeding his clients' expectation through hard work, creative problem-solving and strategic thinking. Diligent, punctual and unerringly attentive, clients praise his ability to concentrate on the task at hand. An overseas client looking for an investment property in the city remarked, "He always had purpose behind each particular suggestion and the properties he would bring forward to us — rather than simply flooding our inbox with properties which fit our budget. He really served as our eyes and ears on the ground in New York City and offered a personal yet professional touch, which is hard to come by."
Over and over again, peers and clients alike praise George's meticulously thorough approach and his willingness to take a deep dive into relevant market data. A fellow agent remarks, "George comes from a finance background, and it shows. He distinguishes himself by demonstrating an understanding of market data that is far beyond the norm." But rather than spewing dry data without context, George guides clients through the meaning behind the numbers. As another successful peer describes, "George has a profound capacity to research, absorb, digest and present data in a way that’s user-friendly for those who don’t have the same level of sophistication he possesses."
George focuses on providing concierge-level, end-to-end service throughout Manhattan's varied neighborhoods. From pricing to marketing, from first call to closing table, no task is beyond his ability.
George received a BBA in Finance from George Washington University. He began his finance career in the highly regarded credit training program at Chemical Bank (now JP Morgan Chase), before ascending through roles in real estate advisory, loan underwriting/origination, workouts and restructurings, and real estate capital markets/commercial mortgage-backed securities at KPMG, UBS and other prestigious firms.
George has called Tribeca-North Battery Park City neighborhood home for more than a decade. A self-professed fitness enthusiast, in his free time, you might find him at one of the city's best boutique studios, including Barry’s Bootcamp, SoulCycle and CityRow.
