Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $350K in Durham, NH.
We started working with Michael back in October on a deal that eventually closed in January. He served as our agent as part of the purchase of our home. It was a complicated process that was on the verge of falling apart on more than one occasion but Michael held it (and us) together and we got it done. He was (and remains) a huge asset, not just on the home purchase, but helping us find other contractors/service providers in the area. I'd highly recommend Michael without hesitation.

When selecting a real estate agent it is important to ask yourself: "does he/she care about my expectations, desires, and goals?". I find too often that agents only care about their bottom line. Some only want quick sales, quick negotiations, and quick decisions. Michael Allen is one of the agents that does NOT fit that bill. The first time he contacted me, he asked me about my aspirations and goals. He asked me to tell him about myself and what exactly I was looking for. Since I was new to investment property real estate, I had a lot of questions and some butterflies. Michael answered all my questions, provided very knowledgeable and experienced advice, and counseled me through the whole process of purchasing a home. Michael Allen wasn't just my real estate agent...he was my real estate MENTOR. I will only use Michael in the greater Sea Coast area in the future. He is the best.

Michael helped me every step of the way, going above and beyond what traditional Real estate professionals do. My hunt for the house I ultimately bought, took a while to find but michael still did all the leg work and really made the whole experience pleasant.
Michael talked me through the process as well as what I could afford and pinpointed the things that were important to me as well as the experience.
I highly recommend Michael, I hope to down the road do business with him again

We purchased our home with Michael's expertise two months ago, and he is still very helpful. Michael has always made us feel like we can go to him with any questions that arise, and that includes the present time (two months after the closing).
We were interested in two main areas and he helped to compare the two, give us additional information about the towns that we weren't familiar with, and essentially find the perfect property for our family.
Michael is a wonderful realtor and we feel confident in his knowledge. He worked around our short window of time where we were both available to house hunt. He responds to our calls/emails/texts in a very timely manner. Even when he was on vacation during the time frame between negotiating and closing, he was able to make arrangements (that he didn't have to) for us to get into the house.
Without hesitation, we highly recommend Michael Allen.
I worked with Mike for many months as this was my first time going through the process and I was not very familiar with everything. He was not only extremely knowledgeable about the process and what is important to look for in a house, but also detail oriented and took the time to explain everything whenever I had a question or concern. He was responsive to my questions and helped to keep me calm throughout the closing process. Mike checks in to make sure you're on the same page and everything is going alright on a personal level as well. He has become someone I can trust and I would definitely recommend him to any friends/family that are looking for a house to call their home.

We highly recommend Michael Allen to anyone with real estate needs in the seacoast area of NH. He was a true professional who is knowledgeable and very easy to communicate with. He did an excellent job of getting us into see houses that had just come onto the market, as quickly as possible. He is very responsive and knowledgable about all aspects of home ownership and home maintenance, and is helpful in determining fair market value. He has our highest recommendation and we will gladly work with him again in the future.
Mr. Allen organized visits to all the homes we requested to see in the area. He was knowledgable and shared insights about Portsmouth and the surrounding area. The schedule he prepared allowed plenty of time to see each property and we were not rushed. I highly recommend him!
Michael helped my wife and I buy our first home this summer in Dover, and we are extremely happy we contacted him. We were brand new to the area, and weren't even sure what town we wanted to live in. From the very beginning he was easy to talk to, professional but laid-back, and was very thorough in walking us through the entire process and helping us to weigh the pros and cons of the the different areas and homes we were looking at. We always knew he was looking out for our best interests and was extremely patient with us. In the end we ended up in the perfect place at the right price, and a huge amount of that is due to his work and knowledge. We can't recommend him enough!
Came to know Michael thru Zillow reviews and found all of them to be true & even exceeded our expectations. Bought our first house & the entire process only took 2 months but could've closed in just 4 weeks if not for circumstances beyond Michael's control. All our dealings were based on RESPECT and being FAIR. He has the character that brings faith and good image to whatever field he may be in. We felt that Michael is "in for the long haul" and would love to do business with him again.
Michael was the buying agent for a house that I was selling. He is very knowledgeable of the local real estate market and was extremely helpful in guiding the whole sales process. I could count on Michael for timely, open and honest communication.
Michael is a kind, down to earth person who always conducts himself in a professional manner. He is the type of person you enjoying working with and you want to represent you as you navigate buying or selling a home.
I highly recommend Michael Allen and his associates to assist you with your next real estate transaction.
