Spring 2021 will definitely see a positive market despite lockdown, and while it’s easy to think any agent can sell, it comes down to working with an agent who will think outside the square to find extra buyers to ensure you truly maximise your success. Starting in 2002, I have been through multiple rising markets in Sydney and excelled beyond for my clients.
A high performing sales agent on the Lower North Shore, Matthew Smythe has sold over $1 billion worth of local property and has personally set records in Cremorne Point, Mosman, McMahons Point, Kirribilli and Cammeray.
With the addition of being a Principal of a trusted boutique real estate group, Matthew’s commitment and dedication to ensure all clients achieve their real estate goals is stronger than ever.
An approachable and strong communicator, Matthew thrives on the competitive nature of real estate, the enjoyment of putting deals together and building longstanding client relationships. With a strong team behind Matthew, they are all able to leverage off each other’s strengths and experience, ensuring that every transaction is a positive and highly successful one.

Matthew was recognised at the Real Estate Institute Awards for Excellence in Auction Marketing, is ranked in the Top 100 Agents in Australia at the REB Awards for 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 and still holds the highest $/sqm record ever for Cremorne Point and McMahons Point.

Working with Matt and his team at Belle Property has been an absolute delight! The team has a great energy and I couldn't be happier with the result! Thanks again!
Matthew was a pleasure to deal with throughout the campaign. He provided great advice pre-sale, marketing recommendations, styling advice, and local market knowledge and price guidance.
Matthew negotiated a great price we were happy with pre-auction and he kept up constantly updated with how the campaign was tracking and interested parties. In a competitive area, Matthew proved himself to be one of the best in the business.
All the best to you and Jesse for landing us a winner. We are very happy here, but we need to downsize a bit more. Perhaps we can just throw out all our belongings and start again! Thanks again Matthew, we can't wait to use the present you gave us.
Selling our property through Mathew and his team was easy. Great communication, always on time and expert knowledge of the Cremorne area gave us a great result, more than we had expected.
Credibility, trust and confidence underline our dealings with Matthew, who we have known for over ten years. In that time and have now had three direct business dealings with him since 2011.
The recent purchase went very smoothly from the first open house to the final auction success. While he knew we were interested, he never pressured us to make pre-auction offers as he believed the seller preferred to take it to auction. Thus, while trusting his advice, knowledge and judgement re his client we also had absolute confidence that if there was any activity by other interested parties pre-auction we would be advised so we could participate in purchasing if we so desired.
Previously in 2011, Matthew was our preferred agent who sold our property and was also the agent for the property we purchased. There were no issues with potential conflicts of interest in these transactions which occurred within 7 days of each other and we appreciated his openness in discussing this and his clarity in explaining his clear position that he always represented the seller’s best interests.
We have no hesitation in recommending Matthew and his team to potential clients.
Matthew was a great guy to work with. He was always well presented, polite and convivial to all parties - my sale went through very smoothly with Matthew at the helm guiding me and giving me regular feedback and much need advice. I would recommend Matthew if you want the best!
Matthew and the Belle Property team were exceptional before, during and after the sale of our home. His knowledge of our area and the market were excellent, as he guided us through the sale process. He was not pushy or over the top and displayed an enormous amount of common sense and genuine alliance when considering our personal needs. We found him completely professional, trust worthy and ethical and would highly recommend Matthew when either selling or buying. A genuine 5-Star agent with the communicating skills and credibility to back it.
Matthew is a highly professional, responsive and well-informed agent. He made it easy to work with him and Belle Property Neutral Bay. He has a fantastic positive style and his years of experience and knowledge are a standout. I would highly recommend Matthew as an agent of choice.
Matthew did a great job as our agent. He gave us consistent messages from the start and did not over-promise and under-deliver. His communication was excellent throughout and his consistency and manner really helped us to feel reassured during the whole campaign.
Matthew was easy to deal with, proactive with follow-up and realistic in all our discussions. He took the time to understand our requirements. His colleagues were all professional, courteous and worked as a team, being informed and up to date. As a purchaser, we were impressed by his calm disposition, excellent local market knowledge and flexibility with securing access outside regular opening times.
After interviewing several agents, we chose Matthew at Belle Property Neutral Bay to sell our apartment. Matthew is very “down to earth” and we felt very comfortable with him almost immediately. His professionalism, mature and friendly manner and extensive real estate experience and knowledge of the local area ticked all the boxes.
Matthew guided with preparation and styling of the property, which was ideal for us as we no longer lived local to the property and this minimised our travel. He kept us informed with regular updates, phone calls, emails and reports during the entire process and achieved a successful sale in a short period of time. We have no hesitation in recommending Matthew to anyone wanting to sell their property.
Matthew was the first of the Belle Property team to view our property before we had made any firm decisions on selling and who to go with, but he immediately appreciated the potential and caught our attention as a person who understood what our home had to offer.
He was very easy to work with and once we confirmed with Belle Property he formed a formidable team with Tim Foote from the Mosman office. Matthew was prompt with any feedback or the need to ask questions on behalf of buyers and was always confident we would secure a good outcome throughout the marketing, attending every open home and progress meetings.
I would confidently recommend Matthew and Belle Property as professionals and easy to work with, and I have been very satisfied with the working relationship and the result on the auction day.
In choosing Matthew to sell our property we found someone whose professionalism was without question and who provided us with support, guidance and continuing updates, both written and verbal, throughout the marketing campaign. We were able to have confidence that Matthew was always prompt in responding to questions and had a genuine interest in achieving a successful sale for us.
Matthew and his team have made a number of sales for us and we've been very happy with every part of the process, from the negotiations to the end results. Matthew is able to put himself in the shoes of both the purchaser and the vendor and enables everyone to feel satisfied with the ultimate sale.
Matthew brought his considerable depth of experience and market knowledge to our sale. His professionalism was complete, from managing the buyers to smoothing out the details of each stage of the negotiation. He was an integral part of our very pleasing result.
Suffice to say he delivered far more than he promised - very impressed - seamless from start to finish.
We met Matthew on our many visits to open houses. Over the years he has maintained his professionalism. His knowledge of the area and price range was spot on. We put our trust in him and it paid off.
Matthew is calm, quiet and a high achiever. Selling my Cremorne apartment was stress-free with Matthew in charge. I would recommend Matthew and his team to anyone who was selling in this area. Right from the beginning, we felt we were in a professional’s hands.
Matthew came recommended to me and I cannot speak highly enough of my recent sale experience with Matthew and the team at Belle Property Neutral Bay. Professional from my first meeting, I was part of an exceptionally well-run agency that was totally in tuned to my needs as a vendor. Further comment is not required, they don't come any better than this.
Matthew is a very polite and knowledgeable. We felt no pressure at any stage from him to agree with his suggestions on methods of marketing. The selling price estimate he gave us was very accurate. We were always kept fully informed of the results of each inspection. We have already recommended Matthew to some of our friends; as we found Belle Property Neutral Bay to be very professional in organising marketing material, accounts etc. We also thought very highly of Jesse and Veronica.
Matthew Smythe took over the marketing of my $4 million penthouse in late December, after another agent had struggled unsuccessfully with it for several months. Matthew presented it better, was full of ideas for marketing it and was very positive generally about the property.
He generated a great deal of interest, with dozens of people shown through, He engaged with the most interested prospects and with the successful purchaser, negotiated an increase of $200,000 on their initial offer. He sold it prior to auction for a very good price. My penthouse was the third property that Matthew had resold in the six-month-old building. I would not hesitate to use Matthew again and would strongly recommend his services.
I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you all for your efforts in selling our home. It can be quite a stressful time for all those involved; buyers, sellers, agents, and you all contributed to making it smooth and successful.
It was nice to see it go to a young family who I know will really enjoy the home, the street and the Neutral Bay location. I particularly appreciated your honesty in the price guidance and buyer interest levels and was also impressed with how quickly our marketing photos were turned around with the property available online 24hrs after the shoot and the sign board installed shortly after.
Matthew, I did get benefit speaking to your reference and am happy to provide the same should you require it at any time in the future.Thanks again.
Matthew has extensive knowledge and experience in Lower North Shore real estate. We found this invaluable in planning and implementing the marketing strategy for our home. He communicates very well, providing detailed feedback on the progress of the sale. Matthew is a very adept negotiator and achieves satisfaction for his clients.
From the very first meeting with Matt, we knew we were in good hands. We have sold a number of properties over the years and from the get-go, Matt understood our requirements and expectations. He worked with us to develop the best campaign for the sale of our house and provided us with the best advice we have experienced to date from an agent. Once the campaign was underway the whole Belle team were 'boots in' and it was a pleasure to work with them all.
Of course, the proof is in the pudding and our auction result far exceeded all expectations. I would highly recommend Matt and his team to any prospective vendors.
We found Belle Property's Matthew Smythe extremely professional in all aspects of the sale of our apartment. Matt has extensive knowledge of the real estate market and is a person of great integrity. He gave us excellent advice as to what minor updates would bring the best price for us and communicated regularly on potential purchasers, always keeping us in the loop.
Most importantly Matt was very caring and compassionate towards our mother which helped alleviate the sadness of having to sell her home of 50 years. We would strongly recommend Matt as an agent for anyone who is thinking of selling their property.
