Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Alamo Farmsteads-Babcock Road, San Antonio, TX.
We couldn't expect a better buyer's agent than Micah. We found him on Zillow after reading his reviews and the comments were absolutely right. He was extremely knowledgeable and gave the best answers to every question we had (location, contruction materials, landscape, etc).
He had eyes to observe the details that we didn't see and offered his honest opinions. He had a great sense of humer when commenting about the houses. He never rushed us to make a decision. It was very fun and easy to go house-hunting with him.
After we got into a contract, Micah had the best resouces for home inspection so we knew everything that needed attention in our home. With the inspection Micah helped us negotiate with the seller to get money back to take care of all the little problems.
His background as an atterney was very helpful in the process of negotiating and closing. It was great to have him on our side!

Micah was a great realtor. Our house sold after being on the market for one weekend. We had 5 offers and were able to pick and choose who would be the best buyer. He handled the negotiation process with ease and was very professional. From start to finish the process was seamless.

Micah Harper is the utmost professional. I can say without equivocation he was the best realtor we ever used. We were relocating from New York to the San Antonio area. I can’t begin to tell you all the things Micah did for us. Since I flew back to NY immediately after the closing there were things I couldn’t do. Micah had a locksmith come, cleaning person, attended to our pool and many, many other above duty items. He even drove me back to the airport. His easy going, calm demeanor coupled with his knowledge suits him extremely well to his profession.He was not loathe to point out negative factors on properties which I found refreshing in a realtor. I ran into a few hiccups regarding a variance I needed and if it wasn’t for Micah this sale wouldn’t have gone through. He did the work that the sellers realtor should have done yet never mentioned anything. He took it upon himself to get everything in order.
Micah’s background as an Attorney was extremely helpful in this transaction. I was actually using another realtor via the internet while in NY. She was very pushy and insisted I sign papers to use her as my agent. Needless to say I had to find another realtor. I then checked each realtors background very closely (something I should have done the first time) and then chose Micah.
My wife and I plan to use Micah again in purchasing a rental property. He is a huge credit to the real estate profession. If you want the best use Micah Harper.
BTW, Cathie, Kerri, and Kylie all agree your the BEST.

Welcome to Texas, I know you'll love it here. I can't wait to watch your girls thrive in the Hill Country.
Micah was wonderful from the get go. He was knowledgeable, attentive to detail, and so very accommodating in every way. He went out of his way to help us in our search, even going to a home that we missed seeing while we were in town and making a very detailed and informative video of the property for us. I cannot express how great he is at what he does. I have never been more comfortable working with a realtor/broker before. His only agenda was to help us in any way he could.. I would highly suggest to anyone interested in property in the San Antonio area that they call Micah.
PS he is an expert on the local restaurant scene. Just a perk of the relationship with him!

Thank you so much, I really enjoyed working with you two. Meeting friends like you is one of the best perks of being a Realtor.
We've worked with Micah several times now! Would highly recommend. He spent quite a bit of time looking for houses, never pressuring us for a decision. Always has good suggestions and advice. I prefer a realtor who works hard and doesn't make you feel that you are wasting their time, even if it takes months to make a final decision. Thanks Micah!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Vance Jackson, San Antonio, TX.
Micah helped my husband and me find the perfect home for us. He patiently hung in there for us even though it took over a year to find and close on it. It was a short sale and it presented a number of obstacles but in the end, it was all worth it. I will recommend him with no hesitation.

Micah was very responsive to show us properties we were interested in. He impressed us so that we decided to list our house with him. He noticed all upgrades and suggested a selling price that was high but competitive to other listings in our area. He also made suggestions to be able to show the house well. He immediately took steps to insure that our listing had good exposure. He did such a great job that we had 4 showings within the first 2 days! We also received 2 offers from those showings and had the contract signed within 3 days of the MLS listing.
Then we had to find a place to move to pronto. He worked with our busy schedule and was able to show us homes for either rent or sale. We decided on buying a house. Even though we had less than a month to sell and buy ( between thanksgiving & X-mas) he coordinated with all those involved ( mortgage companies, title companies)to make the transactions go smoothly. He went with us to the closing & even caught a mistake at my closing that saved me some money.
Next time I have any real estate transaction i am making sure he will be representing me

Thank you Sandra, it was my pleasure working with you and your family and I look forward to the next time I can assist you.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Legend Hills-Crownridge of Texas, San Antonio, TX.
Micah is an excellent Real Estate Professional. He helped me find my home and negotiate a price I am still quite happy with. He coordinated the offers that left me confident in the purchase, and continued to help resolve the inevitable small issues that arose before moving in. He's very responsive and knows his stuff when it comes to real estate law and the best areas to buy in San Antonio. And even better... he patiently answered all my questions and concerns as I was very inquisitive throughout the buying and selling processes. Not just anyone can deal with such an anxious client! I would definitely recommend Micah to anyone looking for a real estate agent/attorney in the San Antonio region.
