Sold a home in 2013.
Mr. Stone is a great realtor and a good person. As a seller, I could not have asked for better thru the process. Mr. Stone is always very respectful and courteous as would be expected from a man with an extensive military service. He never oversteps his boundaries as a legitimate realtor and is very careful to avoid offering legal advice.

For the new age folks - Mr. Stone is a good dude.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Kempner, TX.
I am in the military stationed at Ft Hood, TX. I was stationed at Ft Bragg, NC when I came down on orders for Ft Hood. I was looking at real estate in the Copperas Cove/Kempner area, and requested information on a house in Kempner from the Trulia Website. I received a call from Mike Stone within minutes, and we discussed my housing requirements. He identified several options, and recommended that I come to Texas in advance to find a house. As he pointed out, that would allow me to have a house ready upon my arrival.

I have bought several houses before and was very picky, looking for that exact house. Mike sent quite a few listings that fit my requirements, and I would sit down with my family and review pictures and descriptions. In short, by the time we were ready to take the trip down, we had narrowed the list to 5 to 6 houses. Mike set up appointments and made sure all the houses were available for viewing. However, my vehicle broke down on the trip, and we had to reschedule the showing for a couple of days later. When we finally arrived, he had rescheduled everything and took us to the perfect house on the first showing. This house exceeded my expectations in location preference, price, quality, and additional work spaces, i.e. additional carports and workshop. He had an offer ready for us to sign the next morning, and we were on our way back to Ft Bragg, NC. After a counter-offer, we were on to closing. Mike supervised everything along the way, including putting us in touch with an Outstanding Finance representative. Our arrival to Ft Hood was delayed because the movers at Ft Bragg kept changing our move date, so Mike arranged for a mail-out closing, and also conducted the walk through with the sellers and accepted the house for us.

When we arrived to our new house, he met us with the keys to our new home. I have lived here for six months, and this home and community where I live are everything that I expressed to him that we were looking for.

Mike was always prompt to return a phone call or e-mail. Mike is also a retired First Sergeant in the US Army, and I believe his experiences with moving have given him a unique perspective. In short, I consider Mike an expert in relocation and an expert on the Copperas Cove / Kempner area. I highly recommend Mike Stone to anyone buying or selling a home in this area.

Bought a home in 2013.
I have moved to over 6 different states in my career and he is the best realtor I’ve worked with.

He not only hunts for what you say you are looking for, but he UNDERSTANDS what you are looking for. Doesn’t just send you blanket list of homes that meet your price range. He analyzed ALL of our preferences and helped us to prioritize them for our perfect home.

And when we decided what home we wanted, he walked us through the whole process.

He doesn’t just answer your questions, he learns your concerns and provides sound advice. Did not push in the “make a sale” sense, but rather advises if there are other potential buyers or if the home is priced to sell or better yet…if it wasn’t worth the time. He knows this is a purchase that will last years and not just a sale of the day. And when it comes to negotiating….he fights for you. He truly represents YOU.

No matter the time of day or day of week. He was available to provide feedback and meet. Just one awesome example was an email I sent to him while I was overseas. Because of the time difference, it was almost 1100pm here so my intent was for him to see it the next morning. He replied in minutes and we ended up “talking” via email for almost hour.

When I refer to my previous realtors, although they got the job done, I can’t remember their name. I always say, “remember that one realtor we had.” Mike on the other hand, I will remember for a long time. And I’m willing and have used my credibility to refer him to my friends and family.

Don’t be fooled if another realtor says “that they work this area” You can get any realtor you want. Whether you’ve purchased a home before and especially if this is your first home purchase, Mike is the realtor to get. Just make the call. He will take care of the rest.

Bought a home in 2013.
Michael Stone, helped us find our dream home even with all the pre-requisites (specific schools for our children, nice/quiet/close to work location with beautiful views of the Texas sky) we gave him. He is a very knowledgeable realtor of both the local area and the processes. He was always readily available to meet us; a dual military family with 2 children, 3 dogs that were PCSing from overseas. He was also very responsive whenever we needed something even if it wasn't business related. He ensured to keep us informed and provided us any information/documents we needed in a timely manner. His negotiations skills were put to the test when the builder of our house decided to raise the price just as we were going to put an offer on the table. He made sure that we got the original asking price and that everything in our contract was met. He was very friendly and a pleasure to work with. I will definitely recommend him to all our friends especially my military friends.

Bought a home in 2013.
Phenomenal, superior expertise, unbelievable support. Within 3 days he showed us so many houses within what we were looking for...which led us to finding one we wanted to buy. Since we won't be in Killeen for a few months yet...Mike made everything so easy and happen via constant contact (phone / email). He made our first home purchase so smooth it was amazing. I definitely recommend Mike to anyone, especially military moving to the area (or retiring to the area). He truly is dedicated to providing first-class assistance and support to everyone. So if you want a real estate expert and professionall...call on Mike Stone...FIRST!

Sold a home in 2013.
Michael Stone is your guy! He sold our property quickly and we were beyond pleased with his professionalism. We did most communications and transactions by phone or email, as I reside out of state. Michael cared about the needs of our family and made this sale happen. He is the best realtor I have ever worked with!
