Matthew Rathbun Listing Specialist

About Matthew Rathbun

Hi, I’m Matthew and my family and I have called Fredericksburg, VA home for over 40 years.  For well over a decade I have served clients throughout the Fredericksburg region.  I see my role as a support character in your life story.  For most people selling a home is a significant life event and represents a notable mile marker in your life.  My responsibility to is to give you straight-forward advise on how to best navigate the process.  What my clients have most appreciated in the past has been my ability to marry the most current industry tools and resources with a strong understanding of real estate law and negotiations.

Every agent has a different philosophy about why they choose this career.  It can mean many sleepless nights worrying about your clients and a lot of hard work to make sure that client gets the best results.  For me, my “why” is that I have seen how damaging choosing the wrong agent can be.  I know that when I seek for help from a someone, I want to know that they are treating me as they would their own family.  I want to ensure that the Seller that I am representing gets the best protection that they law contract can provide and that we use the latest tools, resources and technologies to ensure that the best possible results are realized.





About My Family

I’ve been married for over 20 years and have three daughters who we’ve raise and homeschooled in the area.  Our oldest daughter is attending Pensacola Christian College.   We’ve been members of Grace Church of Fredericksburg for over 20 years and continue to serve in various roles.  Raising my daughters is the most important thing that I’ll do in my life.  I strive to do it well.  I love gadgets, technology, cooking and photography (although I’ve got a lot work to do to be as good as I think I am).  Beyond all of that, my golden retriever, Jett is amazing and makes me happy every day!


In addition to my experience I not only have achieved many speciality designations, I am a national instructor for many many of those programs.  I hold several national designations including the Seller Representative Specialist, Counsel Residential Specialist, Graduate of the Realtor Institute and Negotiations Expert.

I’m just a guy who loves life… I grew up in #FXBG, has raised a family here and who loves my home town. Together with my wife of over 20 years, 3 daughters and my golden retriever Jett. I love meeting and engaging new people, so feel free to connect with me!
