Mike went above and beyond when it came to selling my house, and continues to do so in helping me find my next home. When we encountered a problem during the sale, he came up with a quick and creative solution which resolved the issue. I am impressed with his attention to detail and how quickly he gets things done.

Mike's knowledge of the Richmond real estate market is unparalleled. We found him to be a very honest and reliable realtor to work with, which unfortunately is rare it seems amongst realtors. We will definitely use Mike again and HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking to either buy or sell a home.

We are still in the process of looking so we have not settled on anything yet. We haven't really found the right one but we appreciate Mike communicating with us and sending me updates on new homes every day!

When my wife and I were ready to look for our new home we interviewed three different realtors. We really liked Mike's personality and his resume speaks for itself. He assured us that we would be dealing with him the whole time, and that he could provided contractors and referrals for other services. I'm glad to say that he is a man of his word. While we were house hunting Mike was very responsive, whether it was by phone, email or text message. This was very important to us because we work long hours and are not always available during the day. He returned phone calls and text messages almost immediately at all hours of the day.
During showings Mike provided information when we asked, but was really good about just letting us see the house. Very easy going, never pushy, but provided insight or opinion when solicited. He was happy to add houses for us to see while we were out, even if we had not scheduled them. Now that I think about it, I don't think he ever said 'No' to anything we requested of him.
Once our contract was submitted Mike provided constant updates and seemed to negotiate well. He is well connected in the industry and seemed to have a good working relationship with the other agent. We feel like Mike provided good guidance during the negotiations.
During our final walk through before closing we encountered a minor problem. Mike was quick to get on the phone and work with the other agent to provide an acceptable solution. What could have delayed our closing for another day or more, only cost us a few hours. Mike was present all the way through closing, and checked on us after a few days in the house to make sure all was well.
Overall, Mike has been great. He was exactly what we were looking for in a buyer's agent.
Mike is very pleasant and helpful. Was very accomodating in meeting to see the house. Got in touch with the sellers immediately to fix needed repairs. When I had a question, he was quick to respond with an answer. He is good with following up.

My wife and I were very familiar with the buying process. This was not our first or second house. Having dealt with other "professionals" in the the business, I can tell you that Mike is the person and professional to utilize if you are looking for a home. From the other reviews I have read, he understands how to take the reigns and lead if need be. Well, we can tell you that he also knows how to handle the other side of the story. My wife and I were very aggressive at finding and looking. Mike was always there when we asked to see a house and as he got know us, brought great properties to the table. Bottom one is that we got a great deal on a foreclosure because he was there when we asked him to be! Also a great representative on our behalf with the bank. Would recommend him highly and in fact already have to a couple of our friends. Thanks Mike!
