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 went above and beyond for us, he is genuine and caring. We could not be more happy with our first investment and will definitely look to him for the next one.

Engaging with a Buyers Agent through Empower Wealth was absolutely the right decision for my circumstances. Beforehand I was in a state of analysis paralysis, and was getting too emotive for an investment purchase. My Buyers Agent, Matt Skehan, was fantastic in understanding my needs, and opened my eyes to potential suburbs and properties, which I wouldn't have previously known were viable options. Matt's knowledge of the areas I was looking at was so helpful, and his regular contact was greatly appreciated. The fact that Matt was able to organise the Building and Pest inspection, and put me in touch with a great conveyancer and fantastic property manager was a pleasant surprise — throughout the whole process I barely lifted a finger and it was all so easy and stress-free.

Outstanding service with Matt (Buyers Agent)! He was passionate about what he does, and was very helpful and had good communication throughout the entire process and afterwards. The house he chose for us was rented within a week and a half after settlement. Very pleased!

It's been an absolute pleasure working with every team I encountered. Everyone has been very friendly, professional, knowledgeable and caring. I couldn't have wished for a better experience. Special thanks to Joel, Dean and Matt, who had all the patience needed. Also a huge thank you to the support team, who make the transactional stuff easy.

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.
