We had a tight budget and a long list of things we were looking for in our first home. We went through a bunch of brokers before someone recommended Michael to us. He worked diligently with us for over two years, taking up many of his Saturdays, showing us a range of properties and unique options that would meet our needs. He really listened to what we were telling him at showings which allowed him the focus our searches as time went on. He is very connected to the island and its community which gives him the knowledge of the market, the process, and the properties that is unparalleled. We have already recommended him to anyone who asks us and we would definitely continue to do that in the future. I'm pretty sure that without Michael's dedication to his job and us as clients we would not have celebrated our one year anniversary of homeownership last week!

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $675K in Nantucket, MA.
Nantucket is a niche market and a fairly tight, closed market. You need someone who can give you the big picture as you shop for a house there. Michael did that for us, making sure to show us all options but helping us understand the entire market there. Michael's been there for a very long time, too, and he knows all the houses and all the lawyers and bankers. He also understands the contract/closing process very well.

If you are looking for an agent on Nantucket, no one is better than Michael. Michael help us purchase our dream house on Nantucket. He is outstanding in all respects. Michael takes the time upfront to really understand and prioritize what is important to you -- the specs of the house, location, timing, price -- and does his homework to only show you properties that meet your requirements. His knowledge of Nantucket and the real estate business is a huge asset, especially in terms of negotiating and guiding the process. Most important, Michael is a warm and caring person. He values your business, makes you feel your deal is the most important, and he is responsive to any questions. And his attention doesn't end with the deal. After buying our house on Nantucket, he has been a valuable resource for other local resources and follow up on rental issues. Michael will guide you through the real estate process, not push you into something just for a sale. He is someone you can trust and we are proud to know and refer him. And now have him as a friend. To repeat, you won't find a better real estate agent.

Sold a Single Family home in 2005 for approximately $1.4M in Nantucket, MA.
I have worked with Michael for over twenty years. Over the years Michael has presented properties to me to purchase always with good location and value. Michael has marketed and sold countless properties for me in a timely manner after advising me on realistic pricing. That cycle continues today.

Mike was our realtor in the sale of our house a year ago. Mike was great to work with, and very knowledgeable of the current real estate market. It was nice having Mike, with his experience and positive attitude, help us with what would have been a really stressful situation, turn out to be a very pleasant experience.Mike was always available to answer any questions my husband and I had, always going the extra mile and making us feel that we were his priority. Mike also helped us with creative ideas on how to stage our home to sell. My husband and I would surely recommend Mike to anyone who is selling their home !!
