Michael helped us find a house when we relocated from the Chicago area to the Atlanta area. He took the time to show us several different areas over the course of a few months and was very knowledgeable on the differences in the areas in terms of schools, commuting times, and the nuances of the different types of houses and locations within neighborhoods. We felt like he treated the purchase of our house no different than if he was buying it for himself. He was very responsive and worked with our hectic schedule. We have been in our house for about a year and are very happy with the house and neighborhood Michael helped us find. We recommend Michael wholeheartedly!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $300K in Dacula, GA.

From the first appointment it was clear Michael was a knowledgeable professional and he would represent us. He toured our home and recommend areas for improvments that would have the most value and impact on the sale of the home. During the sales process it was clear that we were at the top of the price range and the appraisal might be an issue. Michael researched the similar homes in the area and tracked down the apprasier and as a reference, presented his own report. This above and beyond effort lead to the sale at our price in about two months. He was prompt and dependable and frankly one of the most professional businessmen I have worked with in my 30 years in the business world. I would highly recommend Michael! He is a great person, great realtor, and a pleasure to work with!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Virginia Highland, Atlanta, GA.

Michael assisted us with the purchase of our new home. One of the reasons we were originally attracted to Michael was his knowledge and work with foreclosures. We were extremely interested in purchasing a foreclosure, as the area of town we wanted to live was extremely difficult to find something in our price range. Although we did not purchase a foreclosure we purchased a home that had over 10 offers including ours. When the selling agent asked for final and best bids from all of the individuals with offers Michael sent us an email with thought provoking questions for us to ask ourselves. These questions really forced us to analyze the purchase of this home, had Michael not sent us that email we may not be living in our dream home now. We know without a doubt had we not had Michael guiding us every step of the way we would have never closed on our home in the neighborhood we have been wanting to live in for years. Michael’s extensive knowledge of the industry, his business mentality, communication skills and strong negotiating skills are what won us such an amazing opportunity. Michael also provided us with an incredible reference for a mortgage officer. The mortgage officer closed our deal without a hitch. We are forever thankful to Michael for all that he has done for us. We have only known Michael for a few months, but it feels like years. Any future home purchase or sales we have we will without a doubt use Michael! Michael is truly the best realtor in Atlanta!

Sold a home in 2013 in Buckhead, Atlanta, GA 30305.

Michael is truly a one-of-a-kind realtor. We would without hesitation recommend him to our friends and family. Prior to finding Michael we were working with another realtor. We really didn't think there was a difference between a good agent and a bad agent. We were wrong. Selling our home had become an extremely stressful process. Our first realtor was non-responsive to emails, phone calls, text messages, etc., and their "go-to" solution for obstacles was for us to spend more money. This would have cost us thousands. We were already under water in our home, so this was not an option for us. Needless to say after a very discouraging experience we scrubbed the internet for the perfect realtor. We found Michael by reading a review just like this one. We read hundreds of reviews on realtors before we came across reviews on Michael. Michael’s reviews stood out as genuine and sincere. I remember the first time my husband met Michael in person, he immediately called me after Michael left the house and said “he’s our guy!” This was the best decision we could have ever made! Michael takes a different approach to selling. He’s not just a realtor, he is a negotiator, communicator, marketer, and businessman letting no detail go unnoticed. Even when we presented the many obstacles our home had Michael never hesitated in the ability to sell our home. In fact, Michael had our home under contract within the first week of putting it on the market for $1k less than we were asking! We even had several homes in the area that were distressed sales, meaning that it was difficult for our home to appraise at the value we had to sell. Michael’s negotiating skills are incredible and we always felt like he was on our side of the table, working to get the best deal for us. Michael keeps you very involved in the selling process, constantly updating you along the way. I know without Michael we would have never sold our house for the price that we did. Words can’t express how thankful we are that we found Michael Brock. Michael is truly a one-of-a-kind realtor. We would without a hesitation recommend him to our friends and family. Thank you Michael for all that you do!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Mableton, GA.

Michael was wonderful to work with!!! He is friendly, knowledgeable, and easily accessible. He listened well to our desires for a home and never pressured us to look at homes outside of our budget or comfort zone. He was not only interested in finding us the perfect home, but a home that was also a great investment. Michael worked hard on our behalf during negotiations and was able to get us everything we wanted! He also helped us out with the inspection, gave us lender recommendations, etc. Since we were first time home buyers, we had many questions. Michael answered them all in detail and walked with us every step of the way until closing. He worked well with our lender and made this process extremely enjoyable and memorable! I would highly recommend Michael Brock to all of my family and friends. He's great!!!

Bought a home in 2013 in Hammond, Sandy Springs, GA 30328.

Michael Brock of Foundations Realty Group was exceptional. We are first time home owners. Michael helped us find the perfect house for us. He was incredible with the negotiations and at the closing table. He has a very pleasant and peaceful way about him--- not putting pressure on us as sometimes found in other agents. However, Michael also has the ability to be a bulldog when need be to fight for you and get you the best deal possible. He is extremely thorough throughout the entire process. We've recommended Michael to all of our friends and anytime we hear of someone looking for an agent. We highly recommend Michael Brock of Foundations Realty Group.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $300K in Paces, Atlanta, GA.

Michael was a superb professional throughout our entire process. We worked with him for both the SALE of our townhome and the PURCHASE of a foreclosure property.

In selling our townhouse: we were in a multi-unit complex that had significantly lost value and where we were one of several dozen units available for sale. After analyzing our circumstances, Michael proposed a seemingly radical idea: list our home for considerably less than other units on the market. At first, we were shocked. However, Michael explained to us that there were several pending foreclosures in our complex that would soon hit the market at an even lower sales price. If we didn't sell before those foreclosures became available, we would have to settle for a much lower sales price (as we would be beholden to those "comps"). By taking his advice, we had an offer on our townhouse within 36 HOURS! And looking back several months after the fact, there have been numerous foreclosed units that have hit the market in our old complex that have driven the average sales price down over 25% from where we sold. Michael's strategy saved us TENS OF THOUSANDS of dollars and months of being frustrated hopeful sellers!

In purchasing our current home: we were looking for a great deal on a foreclosed home in a great neighborhood... just like everyone else! However after several conversations with Michael, he was able to select only the homes that met our very strict criteria so that we knew when a home became available that made it through those filters, we needed to be ready to move and move fast! We found a great home with tremendous potential that was currently in bit of disrepair. Michael showed a terrific imagination for what the home could be. And he was an absolute SHARK during the negotiation process. You want him working for you at that table; not the other way around! We’re now in a great home for a great price in a neighborhood that should have been WAY out of our league.

Michael is a no-nonsense, business-minded professional. If you want someone to take you on tours of Open Houses to sample finger cookies and lemonade, find someone else. But if you want someone to who's wisdom and strategy will help make you money and save you money, Michael will exceed expectations.

Sold a home in 2012 in Brookwood, Cumming, GA 30041.

Wonderful agent! We worked with Michael to sell our house. Within a few months of listing, we had multiple offers. He advertised well online, and was prompt to respond to any potential buyer interests. We closed on time. We felt Michael's professionalism, knowledge of the market, and diligence was exactly what we needed to sell our house. Now we are working with Michael to find a new home. And he is keeping consistent with his professional and caring approach. He has taken his time to show us many houses that we have been interested in. We appreciate his determination in helping us to find our perfect home, and feel confident that we will very soon - thanks Michael!

Sold a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $125K in Ellenwood, GA.

Michael Brock is an outstanding real estate agent who has represented me in this capacity since 2009. He is an agent with punctilious character, integrity, and masterful knowledge of real estate. What I respect most is that if he doesn’t know the answer; he is upfront in letting you know; and will work diligently to find the answer. In unison we have discussed and analyzed at least 50+ houses, in addition to having purchased and sold a few. Without any reservation I HIGHLY RECOMMEND him and am appreciative of all he has done to contribute to our successful real estate related dealings.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $350K in Alpharetta, GA.

I have enjoyed working with Michael as much or more than any other professional I have ever dealt with (attorney, CPA, real estate agent, etc). He knows his stuff cold and he will be completely honest with you in all aspects of listing and selling your home. I never once felt like he put his interests ahead of my interests (and trust me I was watching him like a hawk). He is a genuinely nice guy and I can say that after our home was sold I missed speaking with him on a frequent basis.
