Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $700K in Issaquah, WA.
We met Michael through his Zillow listing that was associated with a house that we were interested in looking at. We called him sight unseen, and found him to be incredibly responsive, insightful, thoughtful and understanding. He arranged a viewing of this particular house.... and even thought the house turned out to be not exactly what we wanted, we were so impressed with Michael, that we told him we wanted to work with him to find other properties that we might have an interest in. Michael went to work right away.... Without bombarding us with things to see, he would from time to time point out houses that he thought we might be interested in. Over time, we got to know Michael really well.... and he got to know us really well. So when he called us one day, while we were out of town on vacation, and said, "I think I've found the house you'll love," we listened with great interest. Michael went and visited the house while we were out of town, and sent us videos that he took with his cell phone. We could immediately see that this was INDEED the house. Michael made sure that the owners didn't consider any offers until we had a chance to get back to town to see the house.

Bottom line, we did get an opportunity to make an offer on the house.... Michael and his father Loren, guided us through the competitive bidding process.... and lo and behold we were able to get the house.

Then, Michael became our agent as we sold our old house.... He was fabulous... both in giving good advice and in being available to help with the little things that had to be done when work or travel made it impossible for us to do them. We sold the house in less than 60 days.

Michael is a tremendous realtor... and the Landmark Group is a wonderful, family-owned company. They may not be the biggest real estate company in town.... But for my money, they're the best.

I can't recommend Michael, or the Landmark Group highly enough.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Genesee, Seattle, WA.
We can not speak highly enough about our experience with Michael. We were in the process of buying our first home, and had an ok idea of what we wanted. Michael did a great job of listening to our goals and priorities, and asked thoughtful questions to help us clarify our parameters. Based on our needs, Michael developed a strategy and discussed with us how to move forward.

All through our process, Michael's expertise and confidence consistently put us in a competitive position, and he was able to successfully negotiate a great deal for us.

Michael is excellent at his job, but also a genuinely good person who honestly cared about getting us into a home we love. We are extremely pleased with the outcome, and consistently refer friends to Michael.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $550K in Madison Valley, Seattle, WA.
Working with Michael was an amazing experience. In a market that required a very hands on, quick and nimble approach, he gave us everything we needed to be successful. The market in Seattle is very frustrating, but Michael was able to coach us to be patient and this allowed us to get our dream house. When we started our search I never thought we would find a craftsman home in a good neighborhood, but that is exactly what he delivered. When you go with Michael you not only get a team on your side, you get a family and that meant a lot to us. And he is just a really super guy!

Michael was fantastic throughout the real estate transaction involving the sale of my home. He is very knowledgeable with Seattle neighborhoods and is able to expertly negotiate for his client. I would use Michael again on a Seattle home transaction!

Michael was wonderful in every aspect of our transaction. He is knowledgeable, kind, attentive, responsive and professional in every regard. I would recommend him whole-heartedly. The process of selling our house required patience, perseverance, and a thorough knowledge of the industry. Michael possesses all of these skills. He truly made our experience as joyful as it could be.

Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $400K in East Queen Anne, Seattle, WA.
I was extremely fortunate to have Michael help me with my first home purchase and would gladly recommend him to my closest friends, family, and others.

At the beginning of our search, I told Michael my requirements and that I didn't want nor have the time to monitor listings myself. From there, he never failed to let me know personally about listings he thought I'd be excited about and graciously shuffled his schedule around to make sure he could scramble to an exciting new listing at a time that was convenient for me.

After seeing a few houses, Michael was sensitive to my changing requirements and was patient and unfailingly helpful answering questions which I'm sure he's had to answer many times before. This was greatly appreciated as a first time home buyer.

After a few months of searching, we found exactly the home I was looking for and I was able to submit a competitive offer due to Michael's persistence and appreciation for being in first position.

After our offer was accepted, Michael helped with everything from inspection and financing details to finally closing the deal and acquiring keys. Even now after living in my new home for a few weeks, I still feel comfortable asking Michael for help and he is happy to respond.

Michael helped find the right home for me. I have no doubt he can help you find yours as well.
