Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Redwood Heights, Oakland, CA.
Mike is a great agent to work with. He has an "on your side" work ethic and a thorough knowlegde of the east bay real estate market. We have bought and listed with Mike and we would do it again. Oakland is lucky to have a fabulous real estate spokesperson like Mike.
We worked with Mike on two transactions and have been extremely happy with his service and results! Not only is he a very nice person who is easy to work with but is also ...very thorough in all of his responsibilities and is willing to ask the tough questions or do the "dirty work."
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $250K in Frick, Oakland, CA.
Mike Rickey listened to my and my husband's needs carefully. It was very important for us to have a real estate agent that helped us find what we were truly looking for, and not what they wanted us to buy. He was respectful of our wishes but also gave us great advice and opinions. He looked tirelessly- and I mean exhaustively- with a positive, can-do attitude. I can't imagine any real estate agent providing so much effort and heart into the process.
Mike's knowledge of the are where we eventually bought was invaluable. He negotiated every detail for us and we always felt he was 100% on our side. After many months searching, we finally closed on the house of our dreams at an amazing deal. Thanks, Mike!
Showed home in 2011 in St. Elizabeth, Oakland, CA 94601.
Mike knows the Oakland area like the back of his own hand. He is incredibly friendly and willing to try anything. He has shown me one house so far. He wanted to know what i thought about every aspect of it. So i am sure he has a good understanding of what i like and don't.
As for this review, i've left the Process Expertise category empty as i haven't actually made any bids with him yet, so have no basis to evaluate. For this same reason i put the overall recommendation at level Likely.
Mike sends out weekly emails with houses in my price and interest range. He is available on a moments notice when ever i've tried to reach him. Mike is a very fast, no frills, let's do it type of Realtor.
Mike did a fantastic job. We ran into a lot of snags while purchasing our home and Mike was always on top of things and 100% reliable. This was my first home purchase so I had a ...lot of questions and Mike did an excellent job giving me clear explanations. He was always quick to respond to my emails and answer my phone calls. I would recommend Mike to any of my friends or family interested in buying a house.
