Agent Reviews

Patrice Dell- Sanctuary Cove

We have now both bought and sold through Matt and on each occasion we found Matt to be very knowledgeable and professional. In our recent sale transaction he effectively marketed our main river property and qualified potential purchasers to ensure a timely sale. We would use Matt again and would recommend him and his team for your real estate transaction. Patrice Dell

Mariana & Ross

He is the most professional and likeable agent I have dealt with.


He was efficient and genuine


Matt and his team really could not have done a better job. I am confident that Matt did everything he could to obtain the best possible price for my house. The level of service Matt and his team provided was exemplary. I will definitely be using his services again in the future and would have no hesitation in recommending Ray White Sanctuary Cove to my friends and colleagues.

Colin and Sue - Sanctuary Cove

Matt was great to work with and he was positive at all times. He seems to have a good client base which he calls on and the results are positive. He achieved a good price without vendor bashing to get the deal done. His assistant, Jodie Dart was professional and a delight to call on. Deborah Forbutt was equally positive and professional.

Sharyn and Gregory

Matt went above and beyond our expectations for a real estate agent.

Glenn and Erika Macgregor-Davies- Gold Coast

It was a pleasure to work with Matt who we found to be one of the very few true real estate professionals here on the Gold Coast. Matt delivered on every aspect of the sale, from appraisal through to marketing, showcasing and final closing, all within 10 days. The entire process was stress and pressure free. I would highly recommend Matt to anyone who is looking for an honest and professional real estate experience.

Brian Silvester- Sanctuary Cove

Matt sold our house for an acceptable price and also acted for the owner of the house that we bought. In both transactions we could not fault Matt's ethics, dedication and communication skills. He was always made himself available when we needed him and promptly responded to questions and provided information in a timely manner. Matt conducts himself in a very professional manner and I would not hesitate to recommend him for any real estate requirements whether buying or selling or just obtaining an appraisal.

Peter and Claire

Outstanding agent

Marilyn Morgan- Sanctuary Cove

I had the pleasure of meeting Matt around 7 years ago, and have no hesitation giving an inkling as to what a kind and trustworthy young man he is. I have dealt in real estate for many years all over Australia and I can say with confidence that if you are looking to sell or buy Matt Gates is your man. Oh that’s if you want to put your mind at ease over the huge decisions and transactions which you will incur. Matt goes beyond the call of duty. He assisted me in buying a car. How's that for service!

Paul and Glenda Morgan- Sanctuary Cove & New Zealand

It is with pleasure that we provide this testimony for Matt Gates of Ray White Prestige Property. We first met Matt in September 2012 when we were looking to buy a property in the Sanctuary Cove area. Within an hour, having looked at only three properties Matt was astute in gleaning the type of property we were seeking. Subsequently we did buy a property, thanks to Matt's untiring work on our behalf. Not only is Matt enthusiastic, unphased, friendly and a good listener, nothing was, or has been, too much trouble for him to deal with. As owners who travel a lot, Matt has provided enormous comfort keeping an eye on paperwork and the property in our absence with no gain for himself. We look upon Matt as a friend really who is excellent at his job. He is professional, consistent and he works tirelessly, we are sure, for all of his clients. We would be more than happy to expand on this testimony and highly recommend that Matt Gates be rewarded for his excellent work in the Real Estate Industry. Glenda & Paul Morgan

Dee Bounds- Sanctuary Cove

The selling and buying of a home will more than likely be the most important transaction one will be involved in, during one’s life…to have a trusted advisor, honest arbitrator and effective negotiator is an absolute must. Matt Gates has availed himself on many an occasion, to provide honest feedback, no nonsense strategy and all the while work for the vendors best interest. A skill that he takes very seriously and understands intimately. I would recommend Matt, in any and all of my real estate transactions and would not hesitate to convey this to any potential client.

Claire and Peter Ball- Sanctuary Cove

We have been dealing with Matt for the past 9 years now. Having sold 3 properties and also bought 3 properties through Matt, we know that we are always getting the best advice without the nonsense. His professionalism, passion and determination to achieve the most rewarding results are exceptional. Moving is such a stressful time for everyone involved and Matt really goes over and above all expectations to ensure each experience with him is as stress-free and smooth as possible. Matt has established himself within Sanctuary Cove and is highly recommended throughout the community thanks to his genuine and honest approach. When it comes to real estate, whether you are buying or selling, there is no-one we trust more or could recommend higher than Matt Gates.. Claire and Peter Ball


Moved quickly and proactively. Greatly assisted in overcoming our reservations as we weren't willing sellers initially.

Dennis and Lorraine Benbow- Sanctuary Cove

Matt - Thank you for the successful sale of our former home. Lorraine and I were impressed by your professional approach to the sale through the auction process and especially the diligent and thoughtful way you negotiated the terms of sale on our behalf after the auction. We commend you assiduous attitude and honest efforts in resolving a difficult contract, and wish you well in your future endeavours.

Brendan Heslin- Sanctuary Cove

Matt Gates has been the agent involved with selling several of my latest properties in Sanctuary Cove. Over the last 8 years I have been a resident here in Sanctuary Cove and have been constantly active in either buying and/or selling properties in that time. As a consequence of this, I have come to know and deal with every Real Estate Agent (both past and present) that has operated within "The Cove". It is from this broad experience base that I can most confidently compare and attest to Matt's exceptional professionalism and ability to achieve results. Matt is ethical, honest, hard working, and without a doubt, the best of the lot in keeping you informed, returning your calls and genuinely works very hard. As a consequence of this he has achie
