      Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Palmer Woods, Detroit, MI.
      Austin is a complete professional and incredibly knowledgable about Detroit. We found his expertise, positive attitude and willingness to advocate for us to be both refreshing and comforting. We would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Detroit.

      Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Dearborn, MI.
      I was referred to Austin by a friend when a new job brought me to Detroit. Austin is very personable, knowledgeable and fun to work with and he knows the market. He was personally there for numerous showings, offers, inspections and closing. He answered myriad questions expertly (I previously practiced real estate and finance law) and took care of the whole process. He is a person I completely trust and I strongly recommend him to others.  MoreLess

      Bought a Condo home in 2012 in Lafayette Park, Detroit, MI.
      Austin worked with us on a co-op purchase in Lafayette Park, Detroit. Co-op deals are significantly more complex than a standard single family home or condo sale, and I think he did a great job.

      Austin has a great knowledge of other units in our development and neighborhood, and also took the time to introduce us to the owners of a number of units. This made us feel very comfortable purchasing in the area that we did.

      If you are looking to buy in the downtown area, then I think Austin is your best shot. We had a difficult time even finding other qualified Realtors. 3 months later, we couldn't be happier with our decision to buy with Austin's help.
