I had lots of doubts and questions about buying my first house. So when it came to deciding on a realtor who would help me, I definitely wanted someone who wouldn’t be so pushy about making the sale, but take their time and educate me as well. When I first talked with Mike, he helped me realize that’s normal and begun laying out the process in a way I could easily understand. Mike is a very customer-focused agent and through the entire process he answered all my questions and kept me well informed. I had a pretty strict budget and he had no problem finding properties in my range and in the areas I was looking in. He kept a detail journal of my requirements and didn’t force anything I wasn’t looking for. With each visit, he was honest, detailed, very thorough and explained lots of things about each property. He was diligent in following up with seller agents and once we settle on a house the escrow process was painless. I had heard horror stories about things stalling or things falling through but Mike was on top of everything. During this experience I had some health issues that required surgery but I didn’t want to hold up the process. Mike went out of his way to come to my house to go over papers and sign any documents that needed to be . Mike is an extremely savvy and knowledgeable real estate agent and couldn’t have made this purchase any easier.

Mike worked with me and my wife to help us find the perfect home in the area that we desired most. He went with us to countless open houses, and private showings until we found the perfect property. He made himself available at all times of the week to make sure we had an edge in the market, and always came prepared in terms of knowledge about the properties. Once we found the right home, he was able to negotiate with the sellers and get us a price lower than asking which is very difficult in this area! He stuck by our side through the entire escrow process, and explained every step to us ensuring that we felt comfortable with the purchase, and he was able to answer any and every question that arose. I would definitely recommend working with such a profession in the Real Estate market. He will move mountains to get you where you want to be!
