Matt is the number one agent in the cove


Matt is really helpful, excellent service


Matt went above and beyond for us and worked well with us and communications with the Vendor. Very patient...

Darren & Janette

“We engaged Matt after having our property on the market for over 90 days with another agent. We accepted Matt’s recommended marketing strategy and were impressed throughout the sales process by the manner in which he kept us fully apprised of all inspecting parties, their direct feedback and an insightful view on where they sat in their decision-making process. A contract was secured in 39 days at a price which was consistent with our expectations. Well done and thanks Matt. Thanks also to the Ray White Sanctuary Cove team who assisted in making the process seamless.”

Peter Edwards - Sanctuary Cove

Matt was very professional. Upfront and honest. He was easy to deal wiith because he was intelligent and didn't play games.

David and Anita

Matt went above and beyond to sell our house for us. His communication and professionalism are next to none. Our house was sold in just over 24hours above what we expected to get for it. We highly recommend Matt!!!!

Thomas and Lauren

Matt did a great job of marketing the property and in contrast to other Agents I have tried in Sanctuary Cove, targeted the prospective buyers, rather than just bulk inspections.


WHile it took months to sell, and many people being shown through, Matt and his team displayed absolute commitment to getting the house sold.

Bill and Kerry

The whole process with Matt Gates ~ buying or selling has been handled impeccably. No hesitation in recommending Matt Gates, assured success in his hands.

John and Paula

We have many years in the real estate market and can honestly say Matt Gates is second to none. In our view Matt is the best agent on the Gold Coast. Thanks Matt, you have done it again! The ultimate professional, ethical and enthusiastic. As a buyer and seller, you have looked after each position impeccably. 4 out of 4 and more to come. Clear, honest communications, worry free, stress free, and does what he says with style. We have no hesitation in recommending Matt. J. & P. Hofstay

Matt provided great communication and advice.

Benjamin & Kate

We have recently sold our home through Ray White in Sanctuary Cove and Matt Gates represented us as the Real Estate Agent during that sale. We signed a Sole Agency with Matt in March this year and what ensued was an extremely professional marketing campaign covering the full spectrum of online, newspaper and pertinent magazine exposure both locally and nationally. Matt also managed to arrange a live TV interview and feature on the SKY national real estate show. Matt’s approach, presentation and attitude was second to none. His professionalism is beyond reproach. All of the above allowed us to achieve a record sale price for a golf course property in Sanctuary Cove. We are extremely grateful to Matt for his efforts.

Well done Matt, Jodie and Ray White Sanctuary Cove, with all your assistance Re: Sale of 5908 Muirfield Place. The sale of Muirfield Place was subject to the sale of the purchasers property in Sydney. This proved to be a well-coordinated success story with Matt’s communication between ourselves and the purchaser. Advising and updating sale advancement. We put our complete trust in Matt to progress the sale. Thanks to the team at Ray White. Pat and Sandra Buckley.

Hastle free negotiations with a good result for vendor and purchaser

Mr. Kilpatrick

We have now both bought and sold through Matt and on each occasion we found Matt to be very knowledgeable and professional. In our recent sale transaction he effectively marketed our main river property and qualified potential purchasers to ensure a timely sale. We would use Matt again and would recommend him and his team for your real estate transaction. Patrice Dell

Matt Gates has gone above and beyond to ensure there was transparency, and communication at every level. His ability to respond is exemplary


He is the most professional and likeable agent I have dealt with.

Mariana & Ross

He was efficient and genuine


Matt and his team really could not have done a better job. I am confident that Matt did everything he could to obtain the best possible price for my house. The level of service Matt and his team provided was exemplary. I will definitely be using his services again in the future and would have no hesitation in recommending Ray White Sanctuary Cove to my friends and colleagues.


Matt was great to work with and he was positive at all times. He seems to have a good client base which he calls on and the results are positive. He achieved a good price without vendor bashing to get the deal done. His assistant, Jodie Dart was professional and a delight to call on. Deborah Forbutt was equally positive and professional.

Colin and Sue - Sanctuary Cove

Matt went above and beyond our expectations for a real estate agent.

Sharyn and Gregory

It was a pleasure to work with Matt who we found to be one of the very few true real estate professionals here on the Gold Coast. Matt delivered on every aspect of the sale, from appraisal through to marketing, showcasing and final closing, all within 10 days. The entire process was stress and pressure free. I would highly recommend Matt to anyone who is looking for an honest and professional real estate experience.

Glenn and Erika Macgregor-Davies - Gold Coast

Matt sold our house for an acceptable price and also acted for the owner of the house that we bought. In both transactions we could not fault Matt's ethics, dedication and communication skills. He was always made himself available when we needed him and promptly responded to questions and provided information in a timely manner. Matt conducts himself in a very professional manner and I would not hesitate to recommend him for any real estate requirements whether buying or selling or just obtaining an appraisal.

Brian Silvester - Sanctuary Cove

Outstanding agent

Peter and Claire

I had the pleasure of meeting Matt around 7 years ago, and have no hesitation giving an inkling as to what a kind and trustworthy young man he is. I have dealt in real estate for many years all over Australia and I can say with confidence that if you are looking to sell or buy Matt Gates is your man. Oh that’s if you want to put your mind at ease over the huge decisions and transactions which you will incur. Matt goes beyond the call of duty. He assisted me in buying a car. How's that for service!

Marilyn Morgan - Sanctuary Cove

It is with pleasure that we provide this testimony for Matt Gates of Ray White Prestige Property. We first met Matt in September 2012 when we were looking to buy a property in the Sanctuary Cove area. Within an hour, having looked at only three properties Matt was astute in gleaning the type of property we were seeking. Subsequently we did buy a property, thanks to Matt's untiring work on our behalf. Not only is Matt enthusiastic, unphased, friendly and a good listener, nothing was, or has been, too much trouble for him to deal with. As owners who travel a lot, Matt has provided enormous comfort keeping an eye on paperwork and the property in our absence with no gain for himself. We look upon Matt as a friend really who is excellent at his job. He is professional, consistent and he works tirelessly, we are sure, for all of his clients. We would be more than happy to expand on this testimony and highly recommend that Matt Gates be rewarded for his excellent work in the Real Estate Industry. Glenda & Paul Morgan

Paul and Glenda Morgan - Sanctuary Cove & New Zealand

The selling and buying of a home will more than likely be the most important transaction one will be involved in, during one’s life…to have a trusted advisor, honest arbitrator and effective negotiator is an absolute must. Matt Gates has availed himself on many an occasion, to provide honest feedback, no nonsense strategy and all the while work for the vendors best interest. A skill that he takes very seriously and understands intimately. I would recommend Matt, in any and all of my real estate transactions and would not hesitate to convey this to any potential client.

Dee Bounds - Sanctuary Cove

We have been dealing with Matt for the past 9 years now. Having sold 3 properties and also bought 3 properties through Matt, we know that we are always getting the best advice without the nonsense. His professionalism, passion and determination to achieve the most rewarding results are exceptional. Moving is such a stressful time for everyone involved and Matt really goes over and above all expectations to ensure each experience with him is as stress-free and smooth as possible. Matt has established himself within Sanctuary Cove and is highly recommended throughout the community thanks to his genuine and honest approach. When it comes to real estate, whether you are buying or selling, there is no-one we trust more or could recommend higher than Matt Gates.. Claire and Peter Ball

Claire and Peter Ball - Sanctuary Cove

Moved quickly and proactively. Greatly assisted in overcoming our reservations as we weren't willing sellers initially.


Matt showed great creativity to present my property in an unique way and then close the sale .

Mark & Phillipa

Matt is a very professional young man who always does his best for his clients.

Clare and Wayne

Matt - Thank you for the successful sale of our former home. Lorraine and I were impressed by your professional approach to the sale through the auction process and especially the diligent and thoughtful way you negotiated the terms of sale on our behalf after the auction. We commend you assiduous attitude and honest efforts in resolving a difficult contract, and wish you well in your future endeavours.

Dennis and Lorraine Benbow - Sanctuary Cove

Matt Gates has been the agent involved with selling several of my latest properties in Sanctuary Cove. Over the last 8 years I have been a resident here in Sanctuary Cove and have been constantly active in either buying and/or selling properties in that time. As a consequence of this, I have come to know and deal with every Real Estate Agent (both past and present) that has operated within "The Cove". It is from this broad experience base that I can most confidently compare and attest to Matt's exceptional professionalism and ability to achieve results. Matt is ethical, honest, hard working, and without a doubt, the best of the lot in keeping you informed, returning your calls and genuinely works very hard. As a consequence of this he has achie
