Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Northwest, Reno, NV.

Mike is an amazing realtor, honest, and knows the market. I consulted with him before listing my home and he told me what he thought I could get for the house. I consulted and listed with a different realtor at first who promised me 20,000 more. It was all lies, I fired that realtor and went with Mike. He sold my house quickly and for what I was needing. His listed was very attractive and he bent over backwards to make the sale happen. Great guy and great realtor.

TW, Thank you my friend for the kind review. It was a pleasure working for you and I'm just so thankful that we were able to get it done in time for you to make the contract date on the new place. We will miss you in Reno! If you're ever back in town, shoot me a text and we'll grab a drink! All the best, Mike.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Northwest, Reno, NV.

Listing took place the last part of November. He was very knowledgeable of the area and we set a sale price. Within 3 days we had 3 offers only one of which was below the asking price. The acceptance of one of the offers from a buying realtor other Michael went well. From that point on the closing process commenced. Michael had a Holiday commitment and was out of the country. His staff carried on the necessary personal contact very professionally while he was out of town. He made it a point to stay in personal contact to assure that things were going well. He was even available for a couple of phone call for which we had some questions. All went well during the Christmas holidays and escrow closed on December 31st. His personal attentiveness to the process was impressive even though he was out of town for some of the time. He is a good realtor.

Thank you both for the kind review. Your house was in perfect condition and the kitchen remodel you had done was just what buyers are looking for. Just another example of doing the right things to attract a buyer. Or in your case "buyers". Thank you both for allowing me the opportunity to represent you and your tips on risotto. Hope you have many happy years in your new home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in South Reno, Reno, NV.

When I first met with Mike Wood, he spent over an hour going over the house hunting process and answering the many questions I had going in. Mike asked how I wanted it to go, and I explained how I was in no hurry to buy immediately, and that I tended to be more methodical in my approach to things. Over the course of a couple months he (and Aleksandra) showed me over a dozen pre-owned homes and at least five of the new building communities in the South Reno area.

Throughout the process, Mike displayed a great deal of knowledge about the areas I was looking in, not only in regards to the houses themselves, but the current and past state of the market.

What I appreciated most was Mike's patience, he was never heavy-handed or overbearing, allowing me the time and space to make my own decisions while still providing solid advice or suggestions. Even during the negotiating process he never pushed me to go higher than I said I wanted to.

In the end, I came away feeling that Mike provided me with the opportunity to get a comprehensive feel for what kind of homes were available (new and pre-owned), find one that suited me, and get it at a price that I felt was fair. When dealing with such a big decision, coming away with that peace of mind is paramount. Thanks for all your help.

Thank you so much Keith. You made the process smooth because you didn't mind my long presentations of market trends and current conditions. You also took the time to really study what the market had to offer, both new and resale. I believe you made a great investment in a great home that was priced slightly over market value. That higher asking price kept other buyers from seeing it and making a reasonable offer. You saw the opportunity and seized it. To the victor go the spoils. Thanks again for letting me and my team be part of your purchase, we appreciate it.

Bought a home in 2014.

Mike was awesome through the whole process. We had a unique situation where the process of buying the house took much longer than normal, Mike was patient through the process and never once forgot about an appointment or an important detail. He kept us informed of everything without suspense. Mike is a true proffessional, we are glad that we were able to have him as our agent. Thank you Mike Wood.

Lopez family.

J, Thanks again for the great review and for letting me assist you and your wonderful family. Excellent choice of homes and although the building process was longer than we thought originally, I think it all worked out for the best in the end. Hope you enjoy your new neighborhood and have many years of great memories in that home! All the best, stay safe.

Joe, My sincerest apology for not having returned your voicemail. At first, I thought "Nobody called me about Verdi, this is fake". But as I was clearing out my old voicemails yesterday, I realized you had left me a voicemail. You left it at 10:27am on Christmas morning. I actually took that day off. In fact, at that moment I probably had my 7 year old niece on my shoulders and was chasing her brother around my sister's house. I don't think I even realized there was a voicemail until much later in the day. I know I "meant" to call you the next day, but we all know about "the best of intentions". None of those are legitimate excuses for me not returning your call. I left you a message a few minutes ago apologizing for my being unprofessional. That's certainly not how I run my business. I take what I do very seriously and I apologize for not showing you that level of commitment. Again, I am sorry and if I can ever be of help, you will have my utmost attention. All the best, Mike.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Sparks, NV.

We were a little hesitant at first going into the process of selling and then buying a new house. We knew we didn't know a lot and wanted to make sure we were doing what was best. That's where Mike came in. There is no one more knowledgable about the northern Nevada realty situation. The great thing about mike is he will always be on your side and he is accessible 24/7 for questions or requests. He makes you his number one priority and this put us right at ease going into the process because we knew Mike had it under control and had our best interests in mind. In the end we got exactly what we wanted as far as selling and then some to accommodate when we were moving. We then had him show us many houses as we were not sure what we wanted at first but he was very patient and wiling to go let us look at any time. It also helped that he was constantly sending us houses to look at online that we're what we were asking for. We would change our minds on what we wanted from time to time and Mike would change with us and accommodate our needs. Not only is Mike the upmost professional but very personable at the same time. I always felt I could let him know what we wanted or what fears we had and he would listen and not only give us the facts but do everything to help us meet our needs. I wouldn't want anyone else selling or buying houses for me again. Simply put he is the best. The peoples champion of real estate.

Michael was very honest up front about the existing market. He knew right away what the market could sustain and knew right where to list the property . Michael was there from listing to walk through .

Sold a home in 2014.

My husband and I sold our home of 28 years with Michael Wood. It was an experience we had not dealt with for some time. Mike was absolutely the most sensitive to our feelings. His knowledge and handling of all aspects of selling our home could not have been more appreciated. He definitely is someone we have and would recommend to anyone buying or selling a home in this area.

Thank you Dawn, Yours was a testament to what can be done when the home is far and away nicer than anything an appraiser can find in the area. The fact that they buyer came in with $40,000 cash over the appraisal is proof of that. In the end, we got you where you both wanted to be in the time you needed. Enjoy being closer to the grandkids and I wish you the best in the next 28 years in the new home. Thanks again for allowing me the opportunity to work for you both!

Gina, Thank you again for your trust and faith in me. Neither the purchase nor the sale went without some type of hiccup, but you managed them both perfectly. All the drama has been put to bed, just in time to enjoy a carefree winter. Go enjoy yourself and call me if you need anything. Thanks, Mike
