Ratings & Reviews

If you are looking for a real estate professional that will exceed any and all of your wants and needs, Mike is the Realtor for you. My wife and I recently transferred into the area from Phoenix and we were recommended by an associate to Mike Gupton. We needed to find a home quickly and only had a two day window for a house hunting trip.<br/><br/>Mike cleared his schedule to spend an entire day looking at homes. We were able to quickly decide on a home and then Mike really went to work to get us the best deal from the seller. When it was all said and done, we ended up closing at 81% of the original asking price. This was due to Mike's excellent and professional negotiation skills.<br/><br/>Most Realtor's would have stopped there, but not Mike. The house we were purchasing needed some repairs before we moved in. I was still in Arizona, so Mike took it upon himself to line up the contractor and get the work done before we arrived. In addition to this, he even negotiated with the contractor for a lower price on the repairs. He is amazing and will do everything in his power to make one of the largest purchases in your life a seamless and stress reduced process.<br/><br/>My wife and I are planning on purchasing several more homes in the years to come, and only one person will be getting our call...Mike Gupton!

Bought a home in 2015 in Gretna Green, Littleton, NC 27850.

March 13, 2015

WE MET MIKE IN NOVEMBER OF 2007. WE CAME IN FROM OUT OF STATE BECAUSE NORTH CAROLINA SEEMED LIKE A PLACE WE WANTED TO BE. WE SPENT THE DAY LOOKING AT PROPERTIES WHILE MIKE GAVE US THE LAY OF THE LAND. WE WERE EXCITED BUT THERE WERE SOME THINGS THAT NEEDED TO BE CONSIDERED. I FELT WE NEEDED A LARGER CUSTOMER BASE FOR OUR BUSINESS SO WE WAITED. I DECIDED TO GIVE IT SOME TIME & MIKE UNDERSTOOD & THANKED US FOR THE OPPORTUNITY.

FAST FORWARD TO OCTOBER OF 2015 I CONTACTED MIKE & WE MADE AN OFFER ON A HOUSE THAT MET OUR NEEDS. OUR OFFER WAS BELOW ASKING & MIKE DID NOT BLINK. HE IS TRULY HIS CLIENTS AGENT. WE EVEN USED A LOCAL LAW FIRM TO CLOSE UPON MIKES REFERRAL. HIS SOLE BUSINESS PLAN AS IT SEEMS TO ME IS TO REPRESENT HIS CLIENTS TO MEET THEIR NEEDS FIRST & FOREMOST. A FRIEND OF MINE ONCE TOLD ME YOU CAN'T CHEAT AN HONEST MAN. WHY, BECAUSE HE CHOOSES TO BE HONEST. WELL MIKE IS THE MOST TRUST WORTHY MAN I CAN THINK OF AT THE MOMENT & THAT IS A RARE THING FOR ME TO BELIEVE ABOUT ANYONE. WHEN IT COMES TO ONE OF THE LARGEST INVESTMENTS YOU WILL LIKELY EVER MAKE WELL THEN TRUST IN YOUR AGENT IS EVERYTHING TO ME.

AS SOME OF THE OTHER PEOPLE HAVE SAID WE WERE FROM OUT OF THE AREA AS WELL & THE MOVE TOOK A FEW MONTHS. MIKE SUGGESTED CONTRACTORS FOR WORK WE NEEDED & WAS ABLE TO EVEN SECURE THE HOUSE & MAKE SURE THE HEAT WAS WORKING DURING THIS RECENT ABERRANT WEATHER LAKE GASTON EXPERIENCED. WE COULD GO ON & ON ABOUT WHY MIKE IS NOT ONLY THE BEST CHOICE BUT THE ONLY CHOICE FOR ANY AND ALL REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS NO MATTER WHAT THE SIZE. MIKE IS A FRIEND OF HIS CLIENTS BECAUSE HE CHOOSES TO BE. MIKE GETS TO CHOOSE HIS CLIENTS BECAUSE HIS SERVICES ARE IN GREAT DEMAND SO I SUGGEST HIS FUTURE CLIENTS REMEMBER HIS VALUE & LET HIM HELP YOU ACHIEVE YOUR GOAL OF GETTING DREAM YOUR HOME:)

Bought a home in 2014 in Gretna Green, Littleton, NC 27850.

We contacted Mike on a property that he had listed on Zillow. Sadly that property had already been sold. However, Mike found several other properties that met our criteria. He spent a couple days showing us the options available in the area. Mike was with us every step of the way, including sending reminders of duties that needed to be met during the closing process. I highly recommend Mike Gupton if you are looking in the Lake Gaston area for either land or a house.

Bought a home in 2014.

We wanted to buy some vacant land and met Mike and chose him as our buyer's agent. We found a property that we liked and he negotiated a price much better than we thought was possible! Mike is the man!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Henrico, NC.

Mike is an excellent agent. He guided me through the buying process from start to finish. We were buying a vacation home in an area that we didn’t really know all that well. Mike’s knowledge of the local culture, rules/regulation, and real estate market let us to a wonderful neighborhood and a beautiful home. He is also an excellent negotiator and got us the house for well below the asking price. During the buying process, Mike did lots of extra things for us (since we did not live in the area) and never gave us the impression that it was not supposed to be part of his job. Some of the extras he did for us include dealing with our inspectors, helping with bids for contractors (which included flooring, roofing, general contractors, cleaning service, and lawn care service), and helping us to furnish the house. Even after closing, he went way beyond what an agent needs to do to help us get settled in. I would highly recommend Mike Gupton. After closing, even the sellers said “We wish we used Mike instead to list our house.” That speaks volume when the seller wished they’d used the buyer’s agent.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Littleton, NC.

Great Agent! Mike is very professional, always answers calls and goes above and beyond expectations. Mike helped us through the process of buying a second home. We were able to close in 30 days. Mike handled everything with the inspections and scheduling of the pre-Closing work that needed to be done. We had a great experience with Mike and would definitely recommend him.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Bracey, VA.

I am a retried real estate agent and set a very high bar for anyone I worked with when it comes to buying or selling a home. Mike had no problem meeting that bar. I worked with Mike to purchase a summer home on Lake Gaston. He was very professional , very knowledgeable about the area. I would not hesitate to recommend Mike .

Bought a home in 2014.

Awesome Broker! We came from out of state for the weekend to buy a house at Lake Gaston and had chosen several houses to look at and ended up buying a house in 24 hours! We bought a house that Mike had "picked" out for us to see! Mike knows the Lake like the back of his hand! We also wanted a realtor who could show us property on Lake Gaston in both VA and NC and of course to do that you need a license in both states, very few realtors have both VA and NC! So make sure you get to see everything on Lake Gaston!! Mike handled all the details and was in constant contact and took care of everything, we pretty much just showed up for closing! He's AWESOME!!

Bought a Mobile / Manufactured home in 2013 in Warrenton, NC.

Mike handled our long distance purchase with professionalism and patience. From our first conversation Mike made it clear that he was willing to assist in any way possible, from meeting on holidays to recommending local experts he was able to guide us through our purchase with a minimum of stress. Mike is one of those rare individuals who performs like a professional but acts like a friend, he has a vast knowledge of the area and the local contacts and even went as far as to meet with us after the closing to introduce us to a contractor and ensure he had answered all of our questions.

I would recommend Mike to any family or friends looking for real estate in the area. He is a great representative for South Shore Realty.
