  • I would highly recommend Matthew for his experience, professionalism, dedication, friendliness (2021)


    "After a long search in a steady drizzle, Matthew was able to find my wife's ring! It had been lost over a year ago in one of our flower beds and someone else had attempted to find it to no avail. As we were discussing sifting mulch and dirt that was in the middle of a window well as a last-ditch effort, he did one final search nearby, and VOILA! there was the ring! We surprised my wife and got some photos. I would highly recommend Matthew for his experience, professionalism, dedication, friendliness and care, and understanding. He is the kind of person who gives me hope in this world and we are blessed to know him."
