Matt Skehan

Buyers Agent

Matt is a Buyers Agent at Empower Wealth and believes listening to what the client wants, combined with an ability to understand what they need, is paramount to achieving a successful outcome.  As a qualified Property Investment Advisor (QPIA) with an investment portfolio spanning across multiple States, he understands the requirements of today’s investor/home buyer and welcomes the opportunity to act as an adviser to achieve his client’s goals. Matt holds an Agent Representative Certificate (REIV).

Today’s property market demands are complex and stressful, but Matt believes with the right tools and knowledge that Empower Wealth can offer, he can deliver a seamless, stress-free property buying experience, whilst helping his clients navigate the pitfalls and risks involved in such a large and often emotional transaction.

Graduated from the University of Melbourne as a Physiotherapist, his previous life includes running a successful Private Practice for 8 years before jumping ship and pursuing his love of “all things property”.  He is interested in design, build form and architecture, is passionate about his property journey and is an active investor – in the near future he is keen to try his hand at Property Development.

Matt previously played high level AFL Football in his earlier years, but now still loves to keep fit, through running, gym and cycling.  He loves spending time with his young family especially Sundays which is normally the only work free day for the week.  On a typical Sunday you will find him at a local café for breakfast then at a park, beach, market or simply exploring the great outdoors.  He is lucky to call the Bayside suburbs of Melbourne home and loves living close to the beach to pursue his outdoor and active lifestyle.

Matt is passionate about and enjoys continually learning, believing that knowledge is power.  How he approaches his daily life can be summarised by one of his favourite quotes from Jim Rohn:

“Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines practiced everyday”

After working with Empower Wealth's property investment team earlier in the year, we knew we were in safe hands as we moved to work with the BA Team. However, we still had nerves about making the first step in purchasing our first property, but they quickly disappeared as we worked with Matt and his team. The communication throughout the whole process was excellent. Matt has invaluable knowledge of the property market, close working relationships with local real estate agencies and went above and beyond to ensure we were well informed and happy with the end result. Would absolutely use BA service in the future and recommend to others.

I now call Matt our "Covid19 buyers agent/counsellor"! He went above and beyond to assist us to purchase a property in a time of great uncertainty and change. Matt respected our decision to pull back when the time was not right for us and then followed up at a later date with an excellent opportunity which was perfect for us and our situation at the time. He understands that each person in a partnership (in this case myself and my husband) have different personalities and therefore needed individualised information and support in order to "make the jump" so to speak. We are extremely happy with the outcome of our second property purchase, thank you Matt!

As a Property Couch listener, Matt is the epitome of what Ben and Bryce's teachings, the fundamentals of property investing etc, for me that is huge because as a new property investor I am getting a consistent message on how it should be. I really like on many occasions that Matt goes above and beyond on giving us tips and tricks on how to go about not only the buying side of things but beyond property ownership (that is super helpful). You got a happy and a soon to be return customer right here. Well done Matt and team!

5 stars! Ben and Bryce have been my ‘virtual Gurus’ for the last two years so the decision to use Empower Wealth Buyer Advisory was an easy decision for us, especially as we were investing inter-state. Working with our buyers agent, Matt Skehan to identify potential target suburbs and asset selection in line with our property plan was fun and educational as it helped us connect the dots between theory and practice. Additionally, the support we received right from the initial meeting through to settlement and in identifying a high calibre Property Management team was exceptional.  We signed our purchase contract just prior to the COVID-19 pandemic hit Australia . Matt worked with us through the uncertainty to help complete settlement and secure tenants. Our conveyancer, Kylie Forbes, completed VOI electronically (JPs were unavailable for face-to-face appointments) and the PM, Natalie South was able to secure tenants prior to settlement. Exceptional team work and open communication through out were key to a smooth settlement and renting out the property. Thank you Matt S, Natalie S and Kylie F for helping us through these uncertain times.
