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”

Matt S was available on hand via text or call at most hours, even into the evening, which was appreciated at the "moment of truth". With a unique perspective as both an ex-employee and now a client, I can say with confidence that there is absolute congruency between the company principles and staff advice — the experience truly felt client focused.

It was a pleasure working with Matt. He came on board after our initial Buyers Agent left; but from day one, hit the ground running. He quickly came up to sped with our requirements, was not afraid to make adjustments, as was able to secure for us the perfect property, which ticked all the boxes. Would not hesitate working with him again,.

The team at Empower Wealth were extremely helpful, professional and delight to deal with. Would certainly use again and recommend to family and friends.

Empower Wealth gave us a full service, research to tenant purchase of an investment property to suit our needs and compliment our existing investments. Their expertise allowed me to continue to work and do what I do best while they researched, inspected and negotiated the purchase of an investment grade asset that will help us retire comfortably, early. Our Buyers Agent Matt was patient in a time of low stock and ensured that he purchased the best asset to suit our needs. The team at Empower work seamlessly together to ensure that at any phase of the purchase you are dealing with an expert in that field. Once the property was purchased, at a discount to the asking price, Empower put us in touch with a local agent where the property was rented for almost 1 % over the average yield for that suburb. Following our experience with the Empower Team we recommended their services to family who have just started on a full investment plan to secure their future.

We originally had doubts on whether a Buyer's Advocate would be value for money (as it's not cheap!) but after experiencing the expertise and professionalism that Matt bought to the buying process, we are so happy with our desicion. We have no doubt that we couldn't have bought a property as good as we did if we were acting alone.
