Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Randolph, MA.
We reached out to Mike to help us sell our house based on the stellar reviews we found of him online, and I could not be more thankful for the opportunity to work with him. He's extremely knowledgeable and honest, and took the time to carefully outline the steps to prepare our house for sale and how he was going to market the property, which ended up garnering more interest than I imagined. He works harder than anyone I've met. Even though he's busy, he was always available for us and supported us throughout the entire process, keeping us closely in the loop every step of the way and answering all questions we had. And, he's extremely personable, yet professional. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and we highly recommend him without reservation.

Bought a home in 2014.
Working with Mike is the absolute best decision you can make when looking to buy or sell a home. He gave us honest and excellent guidance at every step along the way, always advising as to what he would do if he found himself in the same situation. Mike has built up a great network of various professionals, which definitely helped us navigate through some rough patches in the buying process. He's very busy during peak seasons, but was always able to make time for last-minute showings and oddball questions.

Bought a home in 2014.
We would highly recommend Mike to any other first-time home buyers like ourselves. We had a lot to learn about the process of purchasing a home and Mike was there every step of the way, going above and beyond his responsibilities to make sure we had a good understanding of what was going on and making sure we felt comfortable with the decisions we were making. Mike is the expert when it come to South Shore MA real estate, which is why we sought him out in the first place when we decided to explore the area, after reading his reviews on Zillow. He was not at all pushy, allowing us to go at our own pace while looking at homes, yet at the same time preventing us from wasting time looking at properties that would not be good investment choices for us. He is very accessible and available to his clients, as well as being flexible with scheduling. His unique approach to showing a house shows that he is not only knowledgeable in real estate but also in home construction and maintenance, guiding you from the outside-in to ensure that you not only choose a house with a layout and design that suits your style and needs but a home that is of solid and secure build. He is very honest and up-front about the condition of a home and any updates it may require. He is not only concerned about finding you a place to call home, but also ensures that you are making a wise investment in your home purchase. As a result of his diligence, we were able to make our closing date deadline despite frustrations and delays on the part of our mortgage company. This man leaves no detail overlooked and is very effective in getting the job done. We are now happily settling into our new home and community and feel without a doubt that we made the best decision, thanks to Mike's advice not to pass up a good thing when you find it and it feels right. We can tell you from experience that if you work with Mike you will not only find and obtain the South Shore home you are looking for, but also a professional that you can trust. We will definitely be staying in touch with him and consulting him for all our future real estate needs (and probably some home maintenance advice from time to time as well!).

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in North Weymouth, Weymouth, MA.
Mike just recently helped my wife and I buy our first home on the South Shore. I can't stress enough how responsive and knowledgeable he is as a buyer's agent. We were looking for over a year, and Mike was always available to show properties and guide us with his expertise (even with little advanced notice). He was always fast to reply to an email, text, or call. With his contractor background, working with Mike is like having a home inspector with you at every property. He pointed out potential issues on places that we would have never picked up on on our own. He knows every aspect of the real estate game and is the gold standard of what a real estate agent should be. Great guy and excellent at his job. I cannot recommend him enough. Truly a pleasure to work with throughout a usually stressful process. Mike is a true professional and goes over and above for his clients. A+ across the board!

Bought a Condo home in 2014 in East Weymouth, Weymouth, MA.
Mikel expertly helped me navigate through a rather lengthy short sale process. Although the journey to closing was at times aggravating and challenging, Mikel's professionalism and quick responses to my questions kept us on track. We finally arrived at closing date and everything went smoothly.

Mikel is knowledgeable and reliable. He quickly returned any texts and emails and kept me up to date throughout the entire process.

One day before scheduled closing I noticed that I had the wrong kind of smoke detector in my home, Mikel went out of his way to go and purchase the correct kind so that I could pass the inspection. (paid for out of his pocket). This is just one example of the way he goes above and beyond the call of duty. Highly Recommended!

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Abington, MA.
Although I was referred to Mike I conducted interviews and met with each candidate to discuss their specific plan to sell my property. Mike, by far, was the most personable and prepared for the interview and sales meeting. His sales plan was the most complete and one that he would be personally involved with. He at no time relied on the "big company" machine to do his job. Mike was available at all times leading up to the sale, during and since the close. In less than two weeks I recieved multiple offers, the offer accepted was for asking price - done! Although I was nervous through the waiting, Mike kept a watchful eye on the transaction making sure all steps were completed correctly and timely. For me a very important piece was that Mike took care of my home and presented it as the high end property it was. My property sold for more than any other listing in the town over more than a year. It was a pleasure to work with Mike.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Stoughton, MA.
Mike was very well prepared, thorough and responsive. He blew the other two agents that I interviewed out of the water. His recommendations on listing price, staging and other marketing ideas were spot on. He is confident, personable and always professional. We had almost 20 people look at the condo during the one and only open house and accepted a cash offer less than two weeks later. I would not hesitate to recommend Mike to friends and family who are looking to buy or sell property, in fact, I already have.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $550K in North Attleboro, MA.
My wife and I cannot say enough wonderful things about Mike! If we have to choose a few words, Mike is just awesome and a fantastic agent! As first time homebuyers we had no idea what we were doing and am so grateful to friends of ours who pointed us to Mike. He was always just a text, call or email away for any questions. For over a year Mike provided great support that spanned various towns. We started searching in Sharon but we could not find the one that fit our wants. He was patient till we found our ideal home. He walked us through in every step that a buyer would need to know. I greatly appreciate his highly a efficient and he put us in touch with he's worked with time and time again that helped make the process as seamless as possible. During house tours Mike provided valuable insight and expertise that was extremely helpful. I can't imagine not working with the team he recommended to us ( Nick Zannelli - Reliant mortgage and Law office of Doug Mercurio ) because I knew they were always talking to each other so that when a problem did come up they already had a plan in place to move forward and it was 1 phone call instead of to 3-4 different people. Mike who is also contractor licensed helped us really assess each home we looked at. We had complete trust in him and couldn't be happier in the home we ended up in. With Mike's help we purchased the perfect house and we were grateful to have worked with him. We highly recommend Mike - you will not be disappointed!

Bought a home in 2014.
My wife and I had been renting for years, but with rents going up every year, we decided it was time to buy a condo. We found Mike because he had such glowing reviews online, and we were not disappointed. Finding that the real estate market has gotten increasingly competitive, we were concerned that we were not going to find something we wanted in the Quincy area, that would be in our price range. But Mike would not give up and we eventually found something that was perfect for us. This was our first time as home buyers, and Mike helped make it a pleasant experience. We didn’t want someone who would give us the hard sell, and what struck us about Mike right off the bat was how easy he was to talk to, and his honesty. I’m sure the entire process would not have been such a positive experience if we hadn’t found him. We recommend him highly.

Bought a home in 2014.
My wife and I started real estate investment more than a year ago and met Mike then. His knowledge, professionalism, responsiveness and objectivity have impressed us ever since. We just bought our 3rd investment property from him and we are very pleased with the deal. He told us about this property before it went on the market hit MLS listing, we were able to give an offer way ahead of the game.

We found Mike through random chance searching online listings, therefore we always feel very lucky to have found a professional like him. There were other realtors approached us through various occasions and none of them can come close to the confidence Mike has given us with every encounter.

It is our pleasure to have Mike as our realtor and we are lucky to have come to know him. We expect to work with him for many years to come.

Thank you, Mike, for all you have done for us.
