★★★★★
"We used Michael to buy and sell. He was very professional, helpful, knowledgeable, and responsive. We enjoyed the process and would recommend him as a realtor."

★★★★★
"Michael was very professional and made an effort to understand what I was looking for in a home, and to target places that met those needs. He brought a lot of knowledge about construction to the process, and was very helpful to me, as a first-time home buyer."

★★★★★
"Michael assisted us in finding a home to rent when there was a tight rental market. He listened to what our needs were and did not waste our time showing us properties that did not meet that criteria. He also called out the very difficult landlord with whom we were dealing when he refused to make certain repairs prior to our moving in. Michael is the ultimate professional in his knowledge of the market. He is also conscientious, has exceptional attention to detail, and returns calls and emails promptly. Working with him made a difficult task much easier and much less stressful."

★★★★★
"Michael was careful to understand the things I wanted out of both the house I bought, and the area I would end up living in. Throughout the process of finding a home, he was proactive in finding properties that suited my needs, especially as new options came on the market. He made sure to understand how I felt about the homes we looked at and adjusted his own searches accordingly. It took time to home in on a home that I felt good about, but by the time we found the right one, he and I both knew it, and we moved quickly to close on the property. As a first time home-buyer, I had a learning curve to get up, and Michael was careful to answer any questions I had, as well as to point out things I hadn’t thought to ask about. This included bringing a lot of experience to finding potential issues with construction of the homes we looked at, as well as the condition they were in when we walked through the houses."

★★★★★
"Micheal was excellent and very helpful. He made this process as smooth as possible. Definitely would recommend to anyone."
