Ratings & Reviews

I just got off the phone with Mike. I was interested in a rental and explained that i was a disabled veteran. After that all he did was try to find out how much money I made and kept repeating things about proof of income. I do well enough to support myself regardless of my disability. However for the 5 mins or so I was on the phone with him, he didn't even ask for my number. He only kept repeating proof of income and whatnot. This made me feel entirely uncomfortable.

zlaegel, I am sorry that you felt uncomfortable. It is standard practice for realtors to check employment history, verify current employment/income and run credit checks. This is the major reason rental owners hire real estate agents. Every person I speak with, I go over these things with them so they know what the owner will be looking for when they submit an application. I have your phone number as you called my cell phone and it was saved in my call log. I have tried to call you back many times but your phone always goes directly to voice mail. Please give me a call anytime as I am truly sorry your were upset in anyway.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Charlestown, RI.

Michael expertly guided us through the home buying process. We depended on Michael's extertise as we live in another state. The process was professional and timely. He was considerate of our input, made intelligent suggestions, and ultimately resulted in us purchasing a second home that we are thrilled to own.

Helped me rent a Single Family home in Narragansett, RI.

I was in the position where I needed to find a two month rental at the last minute during the much coveted time of July and August in a beach resort community. I feel so fortunate to have dealt with Michael who was able to make a few phone calls and find the perfect home and spot immediately and within the desired price range. He proceeded quickly, thoroughly and professionally and we were able to move in on time. Highly recommend!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Exeter, RI.

My husband and I just bought our first home and Michael was our agent. He made our lives so much easier! We didn't know the process or what to expect and Michael made us feel so comfortable asking him anything, he assured us that we weren't expected to know anything and we could ask him as many questions as we needed, at any time. I knew if I called or emailed him, I would get a response almost right away. We found our house and we're so happy that Michael was our agent. Like I said, he made our lives much easier. I would definitely recommend Michael to anyone looking to buy, rent or sell.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $250K in Charlestown, RI.

Words can not describe how lucky I was to work with Michael Himmel. I was a first time home buyer and he guided me through the process with such professionalism and care. He was attentive to my needs and spent time to get to know me. I was treated with great respect throughout the entire process and i can honestly say that he knew exactly what he was doing. He kept me informed the whole step of the way and made me feel great about my decisions. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a honest realtor with integrity, commitment, and excellence.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $275K in Saunderstown, RI.

Overall, I had a great experience working with Michael Himmel. It felt very personal and was dedicated to my schedule. As a fisherman I have a straining schedule and Mr.Himmel accommodated my every need and worked with my schedule. He was very detailed and helped my first home buying experience to be smooth and successful. I called him many times with questions and he was always available and ready and willing to help. I have and will contiunue to recommend him to anyone looking for real estate.

Bought a Other home in 2011 in Newport, RI.

My husband and I purchased two properties through Michael. Although the purchase prices were fairly low, Michael treated us no differently than any other client. He was professional, made appointments at times that were convenient for us and was always easy to get in touch with. When it came time to rent one of our properties we again turned to Michael who found us fabulous tenants. I highly recommend Michael Himmel and will use his services again if and when I need an agent in the Rhode Island area.
