Mike and his team deliver excellent service. “I want my clients to know they’re in the best of hands. I am a good businessman and confident negotiator,” he says. “My job is to ensure that they have the latest market knowledge and understand the entire transaction process. After closings, I stay in touch and am honored to be the “go to” for all their real estate needs.”
In 2013, HAR recognized Mike’s service to the community with the John E. Wolf Community Service Award. Charitable giving forms an integral part of Mike’s business model and he donates to each client’s charity of choice after closing. Mike also links philanthropy to his passion for athletic competition, specifically Ironman triathlon events. In a recent Ironman, he guided a blind triathlete through the competition (a 140.6 mile race), raising more than $25,000 for the C-Different Foundation and Cherish Our Children International. In 2013, Mike raised more than $110,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
“Mike and his team were outstanding to work with. They were organized, had a thorough plan, analyzed the market well, priced our house accordingly, assisted with staging and had very good feedback on improvements needed to increase the curb appeal of our house pre-sale, and then worked the pipeline of buyers hard and always had good intelligence on who was viewing the house. Post offer they were highly involved in inspections and other buyer diligence to ensure that we got across the finish line successfully. We could not have been happier with the outcome and the level of involvement and expertise from Mike and his team and would absolutely work with them again and refer them to friends / family.“ - Zaid
“Mike and his team went above and beyond our expectations. We had a property that we knew would be difficult to price and to sell. We were guided every step of the way and couldn't be happier. Mike and his teams knowledge of the market and their negotiation strategies were exceptional. I truly don't think we would have been able to get our property sold if not for their guidance. Staging advice, color choices, landscaping notes, all were greatly appreciated. We will definitely refer "The Mike Mahlstedt" team to all our friends." - Steve W.
“Mike Mahlstedt is an extraordinary professional and brilliant negotiator who expertly navigated us throughout the entire process. Mike was always extremely responsive, and his advice was supported by thorough comprehensive research and data. Communication was always timely, but we were most impressed by the accuracy of his response and the insightful recommendations that were always spot on. What also makes Mike stand out is his in-depth solid understanding of the legal terms & conditions behind the transaction. His real estate expertise is unmatched and gave us considerable leverage during negotiations. Mike found multiple outstanding offers for us in a short amount of time. Beyond the real estate transaction, Mike connected us with exceptional professionals in other areas to service our home. We never knew we could have such an enjoyable experience with a realtor while obtaining such stellar results. Mike goes the extra mile and beyond to deliver the best results for his clients." - Kristen B.
