Broker-Associate, Team Leader (18 years experience)
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Wilkes Barre, PA.
He always kept me up on what was happening. a call was there. He helped me though every part of the selling of my sand. If I wasn't sure what was going to happen, he was very willing to help me to understand. I felt very at ease with him. I would recommend him to anyone. When I am ready I will have him find me a condo. Things went smooth at closing. He walked me through it before hand. Thanks to God I had the right person. I hope this helps. P.S. He even let me shed a few tears. ONE GREAT REALTOR in my book.

Jan, it was my honor and pleasure to sell your property! Thanks for putting your trust in me and my team to get the job done. I know this was very emotional to sell your beach land after your home was destroyed by Sandy. You did well throughout the process and were certainly a pleasure to work with! I am looking forward to helping you find your condo and turning the page in life! Thanks, Mike and Team
Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Toms River, NJ.

Thanks for choosing to work with our team. David was thrilled to help you with your real estate purchase! We were very happy to assist you! Thanks, Mike, David and Team
David Scalese assisted me in finding a home as a buyer's agent. He works for Michael Minervini's REMAX Generations Real Estate office. David made the process simple and relaxed. The house that I actually purchased was only listed for 1-day on the MLS. David was amazingly quick getting my appointment setup with the seller's agent so I could view the house quickly before another buyer snatched it away from me (something that happened on the prior house he found for me). We put in an offer on the day of the viewing and it was accepted. This was my first time buying a house and first time ever house hunting. He's from the county that I was searching in, and thus is familiar with what the towns offer. He was always quick to get viewing appointments arranged, typically within 1-2 days of my request.
David also managed to convince the seller's agent to arrange a face-to-face meeting with the sellers so I could get to know them and some questions about the house that only they would know. He said it was high irregular for buyers and sellers to meet like that but did his best to accommodate my request and the sellers agreed! There was an issue with a known buried underground oil heating tank which took around 5-months to resolved and David stayed on top of the issue the entire time right up into closing keeping me informed of the progress.
The main office offers follow up services at no cost after you purchase a house. They research local comps to build your case if you wish to petition the town to lower your property tax by lowering the assessed value of the home. They will help you with a list of local utilities that service your new address. And they can recommend service professionals, such as contractors, electricians, plumbers, etc.
I'd recommend David Scalese and REMAX Generations where he works to any home buyer (especially a first time buyer) or someone looking to sell as well. Thanks for a terrific job David!

John, What can we say, but THANK YOU! Thanks for choosing our team and David to work with to find a great home. We are so glad that you are happy! Best wishes and let us know how we can help you in the future! Thanks, Mike, David and Team
David Scalese first took time to explain the entire buying process to me as a first time buyer. He then helped me choose homes that met my requirements and scheduled showings when it was convenient for my work schedule. And David kept the ball rolling throughout the entire process, surpassing all my expectations. Thanks to the team, I bought the home I was searching for without being stressed.
David takes a personal interest in enabling customer success and his feedback was critical when making difficult decisions. His expertise in the home buying process and attention to detail made for a seamless and professional experience. Team Super Mike sets the standard for excellence. I would recommend to friends and use their services again in the future.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Old Bridge, NJ.
Primary point of contact: David Scalese
David Scalese came highly recommended to us and we're so glad that he did! He is not your typical salesy realtor that will sell you anything to make a buck. He truly took his time with us and told us his honest thoughts about each house we visited with him and walked us through every single step of the process. Team Super Mike even sent us a packet of information to know about the town we were moving to and things to do in the days leading up to closing - they are truly full-service. Honesty and Integrity is so, so important to me and if you want that out of a realtor, then David Scalese is the man to go to! Thank you, David and Team Super Mike for all of your help and direction through what is one of the most stressful processes in life. We will be forever grateful!

Showed home in 2014 in Mechanicsville, Hazlet Township, NJ 07730.
Mike showed me quite a few homes in the Hazlet area. I was really impressed with his knowledge and motivation. I didn't decide to buy a home in Hazlet but I would highly recommend Mike to anyone shopping for a home in Hazlet or the surrounding areas.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Matawan, NJ.
From our first phone conversation with Mike to our initial meeting with him the same day, Mike impressed us. We met with other agents but none of them compared to Mike's professionalism, expertise and his incredibly positive energy and desire to sell our house.
Mike is truly passionate in what he does and goes above and beyond in all he does. He is very responsive and a great communicator through phone, text and e-mail. He is really on his game and we couldn't be happier that we found him.
The house selling process is not always easy but Mike's kind and positive nature helped us step by step. We highly recommend Mike to anyone selling or buying a house!!
