Matt Blashaw and Russ Evens provided excellent professional service from day one. My wife and I felt at ease working with Matt and Russ. They are a great team. We didn’t hesitate to ask many questions for Matt and Russ during the sale of the home. Answers came timely and always addressed the  issues. Matt was great at helping us address structural items of the home and was present during home inspection process providing his expertise. Russ was great, fielding the questions from my wife and I and the buyer and kept us informed of all results in a timely manner. Matt and Russ were amazing staging the home and worked with a great photographer who presented a brochure with great images and specifications in a professional manner. The whole family loved the brochures provided by the McMonigle Team. Inviting the neighbors to the first open house was fantastic. We have talked to a number of neighbors who loved the hospitality. The whole process was conducted in a professional manner. Russ presented a great market analysis of similar homes in the area. All this hard work resulted in a full price offer the first day the home was listed. The 30 day escrow was perfect. Matt and Russ were great at providing timely communication each step of the way. My wife and I would gladly refer these professionals to a future buyer or seller.–John B.


Matt and Russ provided for an excellent experience. They went out of their way to make sure I understood all aspects of purchasing a home in California. They helped me choose the right home for me, even if it meant it would take more of their time. They are the most personable and honest realtors I  have ever met. The experience was stellar. In fact, they will be our realtors for the purchase of another future property. Amazing!–Rey S.


Russ was extremely professional and patient. We had experienced a few negative interactions with several other realtors prior to Russ. He was knowledgeable and would obtain information on whatever questions we inquired regarding the property that he was not absolutely sure about. We would highly recommend Russ to anyone buying or selling a home.–Kim B.


Matt and Russ were very professional and guided us through the house sale process. Whenever we had questions they were quick to respond.

“HIGHLY recommend! Russ and Matt’s expertise combined with their supportive, professional and enthusiastic approach made a stressful transaction fun. They did a fantastic job showcasing and marketing our property to the masses. And we got an offer in less than ten days, and closed weeks later. Look no further! They’re the best!”Colleen O.


“Hello all. Based on this rating system, I see a problem. Great people deserve the highest possible rating that you can give them. It’s not about stars or any symbol you want to come up with. It’s about honest individuals doing what they say they’re going to do, so that the percentage you give for them for all of the professional attention, just feels like great value. Matt and Russ are truly a wonderful team and will make your real estate experience something you’ll want to share with others. But to play by Zillow’s rating system, I’d have to give Matt and Russ, 6 Stars. They sold my home in less time than I could have hoped for and for that, I am grateful. Just stop looking and go with these guys, their simply the best. Good luck and happy house hunting.”  –Ric M.


“I had some friends moving to Orange County from Manhattan, NY; they were in a frustrating situation with a lazy agent and after weeks of struggles finally reached out to ask me to step in. I gave all the details to Russ so they could get connected; literally, within a week, they were filling out an   application on a beautiful place to call home.  Russ never missed or phone call and he is diligent about understanding the needs of the client.  Most importantly, he’s honest and is someone you can count on to get things right.  I highly recommend Russ for any of your real estate needs.” –Sam H.


“Matt has been a great connection for me to Orange County real estate. He asks the right questions and takes the time to really connect the dots. He’s not afraid to get creative, easy to build rapport w/, and I really trust his familiarity w/ the area.” –Adam


“My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Russ Evans with our recent relocation from Manhattan to California. He was in a word “outstanding”! Patient but guiding, offered his opinions as a “pro/con” for each property we expressed interest in and never left our side during the whole process. We are thrilled to have found our perfect place and we have Russ to thank! It’s all about the right person to help, and for us…Russ was spot on! We found our forever real estate agent!” –Mark T.


“It was great working with Matt. I highly recommend him for your next real estate transaction.  He understands the market and trends; he provided sound advice.  He treats you as a longtime partner and not a one-time transaction.  Huge difference from other people I have worked with in my past.” –Sanjay P.


Matt knows homes, and he knows what it takes (and more importantly what it costs) to make improvements and repairs, which makes him extremely effective in negotiations. If you are looking for someone to lead you to the home of your dreams, at a price you can afford, Matt is your guy. He makes the process fun, and won’t waste your time.” –Client


“Having moved 18 times in my life, it’s important to me that my real estate agent is not only knowledgeable, but personable as well. My husband and I have been guided by Russ Evans for several years and find him to be a brilliant negotiator with our best interest at heart. Russ is easy to work with, willing to spend the time, an expert in the field, and extremely responsive. I just can’t say enough.” –Criss S.


“We have just moved from Manhattan to Orange County and after our original agent was not able to provide the time in seeing rental properties we happened upon Russ Evans….luck was with us that day as he was everything we needed and more. He made the process of finding a rental property not only easy but fun. If I could give him ten stars I would. We will definitely be using him once our lease is over to purchase our home.” –Cherise T.

With Matt Blashaw’s background in construction and yard design and his industry knowledge and contacts I wouldn’t buy a house from anyone else.” –Client
