“Working with Michael was fantastic. His personality made the home-buying process so much fun! His extensive knowledge of the area including schools, neighborhoods, hiking trails, and dog parks helped me find a home I love"

"Working with Michael was fantastic! Mike has the ability to leverage his knowledge and expertise to get a home sold quickly. When we sold our townhome, an identical unit around the corner sold just the week before at $100k below what we were hoping for. Mike's ability to market and sell the property totally paid off. We had our fist showings 2 days before we went active on the MLS by using the 'Coming Soon' to advertise the property and build interest. Ultimately, we sold our townhome for well above what we were expecting. And because of Mike's marketing/sales skills, it took only 16 hours to sell it. Truly amazing how quickly it sold. We couldn't be happier working with Mike! And we 100% recommend him to anyone and everyone."

“Michael’s history and knowledge in rental real estate has assisted me in obtaining a very profitable rental property. He helped me run the numbers on income and expense. We also discussed 1031 exchange and various financing options. He went above and beyond to visit an out-of-state property so he could provide advice and first-hand knowledge.” Rajeev J.”

“Michael and I have been working together for many years to buy and sell single family homes. His advice and guidance was invaluable when shopping for a home and his thorough understand of buying process was instrumental in my success.”

"My husband and I are now first time homeowners and Michael made the process super fun and obviously successful! Sitting down with Michael the first time, he asked us questions that helped us hone in on what we were really looking for. We are so happy to have found a house - and thankful that Mike was with us during the process."
