"Michael and Joelle made all the difference. This unit suffered several hiccups along the way but they worked through each one. I already had an agent and once I switched to Compass, then the "true selling" began. So pleased with the outcome. Thanks a billion ."
"I worked with Michael to facilitate a sale. He was always willing to have 830am calls with me before my work hours, prompt in returning text messages and help ease my anxiety throughout the entire process. The sale went through without a hitch. He helped me find a great lawyer, locate a great electrician, and handymen when I needed their services. Considering the times we are living in with Covid and all the precautions we need to take o never felt concerned for my health/ well-being. I would highly recommend Michael if you are seeking a Realtor who can carry you through the entire process without you losing your mind ??"

"Michael was awesome! Up until our latest move we had a bit of goldilocks syndrome with our rentals...we wanted this one to meet all of our qualifications! Michael was a huge help in organizing viewings of several different home types and bringing full transparency to the process. Once we had landed on the right home for us, Michael assisted through the entire process, even up until move-in day. Always responsive, friendly, and a problem-solver. Thanks again, Michael!"

"Very happy we met Michael, he supported us from the beginning guiding us all the way through the process. As firsthome buyers we had a lot of questions and we knew nothing about the process. Michael was very proactive , kind and helpful. Thanks to him we landed the house we wanted, he gave us some tips and everything ran smoothly."

"Mike couldn't have made this process easier for me. He knows everything there is to know about the local real estate market, was always in touch when he needed to be and made the process smoother than I ever expected. He got my condo sold on the first day it was on the market for over asking price."

"Michael was an absolutely amazing real estate agent to work with and I highly recommend him. He was super responsive, helpful, and honest when it came to sharing his thoughts on locations/areas, as I was not as familiar with the neighborhoods. Beyond that, he listened to the feedback my husband and I gave him and pivoted accordingly when we wanted to continue our search. I will definitely work with him again and would recommend anyone who is looking for a seamless and easy real estate experience!"
