Michael is a true professional with years of experience, a canny ability to evaluate and understand how to stage a house and market it to best effect.
We had never sold before, so when we embarked on our sale we were hoping for the best but prepared for the worst - we were of the opinion our place would be difficult to sell.
We really felt like Mike really cared about us and wanted to do everything possible to help in the sale of our home. He handled the sale of our home with professionalism and honesty. We felt very good trusting his comments and recommendations. We were very happy with his service as he did an excellent job. He also was who we recommended to our friends who were selling and they loved him too.
Mike is so efficient and so helpful. He is a pleasure to be with, absolutely honest and thorough from start to finish. He’s also very well versed in the strategies of pricing and negotiation. I would recommend him to anyone interested in buying or selling a home. He is absolutely the best!
Thankfully, someone recommended to us to Michael and he was amazing! Incredibly supportive and communicative, honest and hard working. We ended up being under an extremely tight timeline, and Michael managed to get our property sold just in the nick of time. He rocks!!
Mike was absolutely wonderful and we would highly recommend him. By the end of the whole process, he felt more like a friend than a business partner. We will certainly use him when the time comes to sell our home again.
