I cannot recommend Michael highly enough. He helped us with a cross-country home buying experience that ended up being very tricky and was always at least one step ahead of the game. He answered all our questions quickly and efficiently and was an absolute saint when we had 2 days to look at close to 30 houses. He was intuitive to our needs and wants and helped us find a wonderful home in a perfect location. I will recommend him to everyone I can and will not hesitate to use him again in the future should we be in need of a realtor.

It is an injustice to try and describe just how great Mike is on a limited online review. My husband and I are very particular and extremely thorough with every detail of the home purchasing process. (aka, we are annoying) Every question was answered and every request fulfilled immediately. Mike takes you through the entire purchasing process with ease and makes the process of finding a home a joy.

Michael came highly recommended to me by several friends who had used him to sell their homes. They told me just call him, if there's anyone Tampa that's going to get your house sold, it’s him, and they were right!
My house was being sold due to divorce, and had been on the market for more than a year with another realtor, with no results, and my X was being less than cooperative to say the least. At the end of my contract, I contacted Michael and asked him to take over the sale of my property.
From the start he was courteous and professional, always ready to answer my many questions. And more to the point, he was able to get my X on board with selling the house. Within days of contacting him, we had a solid plan in place to get the house sold. He conducted a full inspection of the property, and provided me with a concise “to do” list of things I could do in and around the house so it would show better to potential buyers. All I know is that as I was getting everything done, the house was being shown often, and that resulted in an offer and eventually a sale.
I know that without Michael’s knowledge of the real-estate market, and his professionalism in working to bring everyone to the table to close this deal, it never would have happened.
I can’t say enough about Michael, he’s the real deal, if you’re looking for BEST realtor in the Tampa Bay look no further, he’s your man.

Working with Michael was the best experience I've ever had with a realtor. He quickly understood what we were looking for, he was patient as we looked at house after house, he gave us honest feedback about the problems of each of the houses we looked at, and gave us negotiating guidance. In the end, we found just the right house at just the right price with Michael's help.
During closing, Michael said there was "something wrong" with the HUD document, and stayed up until midnight to find the problem. His discovery saved us almost five thousand dollars. He said we probably paid too much in points - I wish I had taken his advice on choice of lending institutions; we probably could have saved even more.
