Save yourself the time reading this and just hire Michael and you won’t regret it, but if you must know some reasons feel free to read my review.

My first email to Michael was at 9pm and he replied within 15 minutes, the longest it ever took Michael to respond to us was 2 hours during a weekend ski vacation for his birthday because he didn’t have reception on the slopes. During our first visit, despite us telling him we likely wouldn’t buy for 4-5 months, Michael spent two days showing us properties and taking us on a tour of the area to help us get a feel for the different neighborhoods while learning about what was important to us in a home. We lived out of state and on multiple occasions Michael visited new listings and sent us video walk throughs pointing out various items he knew from working with us could be concerns, saving us more than a few trips to see houses that looked great in photos but wouldn’t have been a good fit for our family. His responsiveness and dedication to clients is simply incredible.

Michael was always very candid about what homes he thought were overpriced and what he thought would sell quickly while never making us feel pressured to make an offer.

In every step of the process it was clear he was acting in our best interest and not just trying to make a commission. He even attended every inspection, appraisal, etc. and provided us with instant updates when we were unable to be present. Buying out of state in an expensive and quick moving market could have driven us crazy, but Michael’s experience, calm demeanor and excellent communication gave us confidence at every step that we were in good hands. I would recommend Michael to anyone and will certainly use him next time we are buying or selling a home.
