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 have been fantastic from day 1. Matt was very transparent and kept the communication seamless. I would prefer to have Matt as my BA in my future. I am super pleased with the property that is shortlisted and also all the stakeholders (Property Management Company, Conveyancing Company etc..). Well Done Matt & Laura!

Matt took the time to understand my needs and expectations, and was able to follow through in delivery of an excellent service.

The whole process was seamless, a total pleasure. Matt is very knowledgeable, thorough, approachable and was readily available when I needed to ask questions. Will use the service again in the future and would wholeheartedly recommend to friends and peers.

Matt Skehan, my Buyers Agent, was a great communicator, honest and professional. He was discerning with property selection, quick to act when required and showed a genuine desire to achieve the best outcome. I feel that Matt went above and beyond what I was expecting and he still helps to this day. Thanks Matt.

The entire team at Empower Wealth have blown our expectations out of the water!!!! From the beginning, when I contacted Ben on LinkedIn, I was impressed he promptly returned my message where he directed me to contact his team at Empower Wealth. I firstly spoke with Brad and he advised that in order to reach our financial goals sooner, we should buy into the market at a higher price point. Given buyers agents are a flat fee, I was surprised at the honesty, given this would put a 6-12 month delay on our purchase. Even though the famous Ben would not be the one sourcing our property, I was following Matt Skehan on Instagram and requested for him to be our BA and he exceeded all of our expectations. Matt is next level up when it came to Buyers Agents services. We have previously used multiple Buyers Agents and never have we worked with one who was as passionate, driven and generally excited to talk all things property. Along with Matt's enthusiasm his extensive knowledge on the Melbourne property market, led to our first blue chip property purchase in Williamstown. We were then ready to buy, along with me being 7 months pregnant and APRA tightening lending criteria. We reached out to our mortgage broker, being two PAYG high income earners, historically pre-approval was a 48hr turn around. I won't go into details, but basically I was fed up with the excuses from our broker and reached out to the Empower Wealth broker team where I spoke with Simon, who had Westpac pre-approve us a week later. Simon sourced us the best lending, performed a financial health check and provided us with a non-bias view on our portfolio. Post having baby Remy, I decided I did not want to be a rent-vestor any longer nor did I want to drive around in a cheap small car that I share with my husband. I wanted a house with a lap pool and a Range Rover. I phoned Simon to talk all things lending and he shared some of his own personal information about being a rent-vestor, which led me to changing my mind on buying a new Range Rover and throwing in the towel at being a rent-vestor, my husband is forever thankful lol. I have recommended friends to use your services and I look forward to working with the Empower Wealth team for future investments.
