George Matthews is a premier New York City luxury real estate salesperson with an extensive and successful background in finance and a devotion to client service that is truly unparalleled.
Described as a consummate professional, George's real estate success is driven by his deep understanding of the New York City market, attention to detail and sharp negotiating skills, coupled with a friendly and engaging personality. His passion for the business of New York City real estate began earlier in his career as a banker transacting deals with developers and investors. It was further nurtured by his family’s success in the development of high-profile luxury rental and condominium projects in downtown Manhattan.
As a real estate professional, George is devoted to providing a consultancy approach, maintaining laser-like focus on exceeding his clients' expectation through hard work, creative problem-solving and strategic thinking. Diligent, punctual and unerringly attentive, clients praise his ability to concentrate on the task at hand. An overseas client looking for an investment property in the city remarked, "He always had purpose behind each particular suggestion and the properties he would bring forward to us — rather than simply flooding our inbox with properties which fit our budget. He really served as our eyes and ears on the ground in New York City and offered a personal yet professional touch, which is hard to come by."
Over and over again, peers and clients alike praise George's meticulously thorough approach and his willingness to take a deep dive into relevant market data. A fellow agent remarks, "George comes from a finance background, and it shows. He distinguishes himself by demonstrating an understanding of market data that is far beyond the norm." But rather than spewing dry data without context, George guides clients through the meaning behind the numbers. As another successful peer describes, "George has a profound capacity to research, absorb, digest and present data in a way that’s user-friendly for those who don’t have the same level of sophistication he possesses."
George focuses on providing concierge-level, end-to-end service throughout Manhattan's varied neighborhoods. From pricing to marketing, from first call to closing table, no task is beyond his ability.
George received a BBA in Finance from George Washington University. He began his finance career in the highly regarded credit training program at Chemical Bank (now JP Morgan Chase), before ascending through roles in real estate advisory, loan underwriting/origination, workouts and restructurings, and real estate capital markets/commercial mortgage-backed securities at KPMG, UBS and other prestigious firms.
George has called Tribeca-North Battery Park City neighborhood home for more than a decade. A self-professed fitness enthusiast, in his free time, you might find him at one of the city's best boutique studios, including Barry’s Bootcamp, SoulCycle and CityRow.

I connected with George over one year prior to listing my apartment with him for sale. During this entire period, George kept me abreast of the sales activity in my building and comparable properties in the neighborhood. When it came time to actually list my Upper East Side-Yorkville condo on the market, George recommended a marketing strategy which involved an upfront investment for necessary cosmetic upgrades as well as apartment staging. This combined with a smart pricing strategy resulted in multiple bids and a quick sale well over ask. George brings a hands on and analytical approach to the transaction process, which resulted in a successful outcome that far exceeded my expectations. I would recommend George to other prospective sellers and buyers who need a good real estate agent/advisor to navigate the NYC residential market.

As first time home buyers, we were certainly overwhelmed with entering the highly competitive New York City real estate market. Luckily we were referred to George Matthews. We were initially interested in pursuing a home purchase in Brooklyn and were especially open to exploring a number of emerging market neighborhoods with good subway access to Manhattan. George made the strategic decision to partner with his Warburg colleague, Jamie Fedorko who is Warburg’s resident Brooklyn expert. After about two months of consecutive weekend searches, we realized that we needed to increase our budget in order to find the right apartment to meet all of our specific requirements, including a private outdoor space. George had recently represented a buyer in Long Island City (LIC) and realized that based on our price range there was more value to be had in LIC vs. Brooklyn. We joined George to preview about five properties and found our ideal residence, a ground floor two-bedroom/two-bath duplex with a large private outdoor patio space in a boutique new condo development in the up and coming Queens Plaza area at a price well below comparable units in many of Brooklyn’s trendy neighborhoods. We were immediately attracted to LIC for its great transportation network of subways with easy access to Manhattan as well as the waterfront Gantry Park and esplanade. Both George and Jamie are well informed regarding the market and have a clear vision of where this Queens neighborhood is heading. We got everything we wanted within our budget; a great value opportunity in one of NYC’s top emerging neighborhoods! Even though the process took longer than anticipated, due to some issues with the Sponsor, George and Jamie along with our counsel stayed focused and monitored the transaction very closely. We eventually made it to the finish line and couldn’t be happier! George guided us through every step of the process and continues to loop us in on the rapidly transforming neighborhood and market. We will certainly be working with George in the future!

As an overseas investor with no plans to visit NYC in the near future, it was comforting when we met George Matthews through a referral. My husband and I had confidence in George’s recommendations given his market knowledge, access and most importantly, his understanding in our goals. The entire investment process took over two months from initial search to closing and George single-handedly aided in every step of the way. We are delighted with our recent investment and highly recommend George as a top notch agent who will always go one step beyond what’s expected!
