Mike was a fantastic agent for us. We had various awkward and potentially conflicting requirements --horse property, something that could be turned into a professional wood shop, multiple commute radiuses-- that he not only accepted as challenges, rather than obstacles, but took the time to really fine tune his own knowledge of what each of those requirements meant. He really learned what we needed, and then went out searching for the right thing. It was an epic search --such properties as what we needed don't appear every day-- but when we did find the right place, his negotiating skills moved us quickly and smoothly through the purchase process, and won us several immensely valuable advantages. Throughout it all, his personal and professional integrity were absolute; his guidance was lucid, diplomatic, and honest, even when it might not have been something we wanted to hear. We recommend Mike wholeheartedly, without qualification.
