Michael was great. Quick to respond, easy to talk to, and very knowledgeable of the area we were looking to buy a home in. We would recommend Michael to anyone looking to buy a home, we were told to use him buy a friend and we were not disappointed.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Skyland, Denver, CO.
Very professional, and has a sincere, vested interest in identifying the right home. He has a very high knowledge of neighborhoods, and will not settle for a property. Commonly, Mike will express his honest opinion, even if it may be contrary to yours. His honesty, commitment, and enthusiasm is what makes him a great realtor, as well as advocate.
Mike is an amazing broker. My husband got a promotion and we had to relocate fast. Mike go our house on the market quickly, sold it in 3 weeks for above what the market was dictating. He has an amazing photographer that makes your house look great for all the marketing he does. Mike is VERY responsive, knowledgeable about real estate, and patient (as selling a home can be an emotional experience). We are also using Mike to help us purchase a home in the mountains where we are relocating to. With our move up to the mountains there were A LOT of unknowns (septic, well...etc.) Mike has extensive knowledge of the Winter Park area and mountain real estate in general. With not much inventory on the market he worked hard to find the right fit for us. I highly recommend him and would use him again and again.
Mike has helped me buy and sell my condo and buy land. I would absolutely continue to use him for my future needs. He has continued to provide me advice, contacts, and shows me property even when I am not actively buying or selling and all of the transactions I have completed with Mike have gone swiftly and without a hitch. He has provided invaluable advice during negotiations on how far I should push a buyer or seller.
Mike was our agent when we purchased this home 8 years ago and since we live across the country and could not be on site to handle details, Mike did an impressive job of being there every step of the way for us. When we decided we needed to sell the house in 2013, Mike handled all of the details and the transaction was one of the smoothest and with no hiccups along the way. If we ever want to purchase another house in Colorado, Mike is our first choice for an agent (and friend!).
Mike helped us buy a house recently and he was just great. Some of the things we really appreciated:
He explained everything very clearly
He was very up front about the pros and cons of our purchase, and always put our interests ahead of his making the sale (unlike some other realtors we've dealt with)
He negotiated hard to get us a price we could handle
He worked hard to nail down all the many loose ends and details
I would very highly recommend Mike for anybody buying or selling a house.
Bought a Vacant Land home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Golden, CO.
Mike was excellent to work with. He showed me as many lots as I wanted to look at. He is very honest, and hard working, even after we went under-contract. I will continue to work with Mike on all my real estate needs!
I will be using Mike when it comes time to list my home. I feel it is rare in this industry to find a realtor that will go the extra mile for you. I am having a few little issues with trying to get a permit on this project, (to build a new custom home), and Mike is stepping up and still working just as hard as he did in the beginning to make this project go through.
When you are putting up a lot of money, you want a realtor that will guide you in the right direction. It is very important to have this trust with someone. I feel that I can put that trust in Mike, and get the right, accurate, and honest answers that I need in order to make the right decision for me.
I would recommend Mike to anyone the needed a great realtor. Honesty is what I hang my hat on and I feel Mike is the same way!
