Sold a home in 2014.
Mikel de Francesco is the best realtor in the industry I had ever met !!! I just sold my condo after dealing with difficult lawyers , trying to sell condo that is located in the building that is not FHA approved ! Mikel took the matters in his hands and made the whole process smooth ride :) I was borne in Poland and trust is very important to me. ! He is the first realtor that I met that is truly honest , personable and is not only all about business !!! It was actually nice to keep meting him , asking questions simply being taking care by him . After the business is done I actually miss talking to Mikel :) His knowledge is amazing and people he works with are exceptional too. If anyone wants to buy or sell , Mikel de Francesco is the person you want to go to and actually he will make the whole process such a nice experience !!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Braintree, MA.
My husband and I just purchased our first home through Mikel. Choosing to work with Mikel was the best decision we made. He is thorough, knowledgeable, diligent, honest, personable, responsive, and hardworking just to name a few of his qualities. Mikel goes above and beyond for his clients. He doesn’t just look at the aesthetics that a house might have; instead he digs deep to make sure that the bones of the house are sound (through the eyes of a contractor), the location is right, and that his clients will be happy for years to come with their new purchase. We purchased our home during a sellers market where homes were selling faster than they were coming on the market. Mikel made sure to contact us as soon as a home was being listed if he thought it was something we would be interested in. He also attended open houses with us. Often times selling realtors would be surprised that our realtor was meeting us for an open house, but because this is a normal practice for Mikel we thought it was strange that buyers’ realtors didn’t attend open houses. This is just another example of how dedicated Mikel is to his clients. From the first meeting to closing on our new home, we know that we made the right choice in choosing Mikel to be our realtor. We highly recommend him, and if life ever needs us to sell our home, the first call will be to him.

Thank you so much for putting your faith in me, working with families like yours is literally why I do what I do and it's never felt like work a day in my life. Tell Scott I'd be happy to chat with him about heating systems anytime and we'll keep in touch :)

Bought a home in 2014.
Mikel was awesome from start to finish. He was very responsive to email and texts, always getting back to me very quickly. That was so valuable to me since I entered into a competitive housing market where houses in my price range were gone often before I had a chance to react. He also knows the South Shore well and is able to let buyers know about things like school systems and resale values in various areas. We found our dream home in the location we desperately wanted but thought we could never afford. The deal almost fell through due to difficult sellers, but Mikel was able to negotiate with the sellers and their agent to make sure that we were able to get the home that we so much wanted. After the closing, he has continued to follow up with us to see how things are going and has even given us a referral for a great floor guy! I will recommend him to any friends and family that are selling or looking for a new home.

So glad you guys are settling in and I couldn't be happier for you. Fong said the floors came out great ( I just hired him for my own floor job ) so I'm thrilled for you and Mike and it's well deserved.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $525K in Franklin, MA.
I recently purchased my first house and worked with Mike as my agent. From the very beginning of the process all the way to the closing, he was extremely knowledgeable about every step and took the time to explain what was happening and what my options were along the way. His expertise and years of experience really helped to put my mind at ease and make the process as smooth as possible. Because he's been so active for so long, he also has a great network of professionals that he was able to recommend to me for anything I needed along the way, whether it be help with my loan or a great home inspector. He really went above and beyond to turn my dream of purchasing a home into a reality. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a Realtor, confident that they will experience the same level of service and professionalism that I have.

Sold a home in 2014.
Mike was a fantastic agent and worked diligently and professionally on a consistent basis to sell our house. It was not an easy process but he reassured us it would come together and it did! He was responsive and efficient with all communication attempts and follow-ups throughout the process. He was a pleasure to work with and got our house sold when other agents in the past didn't deliver! I would highly recommend him to any potential buyer or seller, he gets it done!

Bought a home in 2014.
As a first-time buyer, I had many questions about purchasing a home and what to expect about the entire process.. Mikel's expertise in the home-buying process coupled with him being a multiple property owner himself proved to be an invaluable combination. Mikel would always answer any questions I had about the properties plus ask additional questions to the sellers that I would have never known to ask as being my first home.

Mikel's qualities also include being very accessible and responsive to any email or phone call, always able to set up showings when wanted and often at short notice, understanding what I was looking for and patiently showing me one property after another while I looked for that perfect place.

I couldn't be happier with the home I found with Mikel's assistance and guidance from beginning to end. The services that Mikel provides is truly remarkable and anyone even slightly interested in buying a property needs to work with him.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Mansfield, MA.
My wife and I were first time home buyers and Mike was our 2nd agent. We were original working with an agent, whom we did not feel comfortable with. After speaking with Mike for the first time we knew we had the right Real Estate agent. Mike listened to our every need, and provided great feedback to every question we had. In fact, on the night we found our house, Mike offered to go (on his own) to personally take a look at the house on a Sunday night at 7:30 pm., now that is first class service.

During the P & S, inspection, financing and closing portion of the home buying process, Mike was in constant contact, and answered every one of our call no matter the substance, urgency or time!! Mike made our first time home buying experience, a complete breeze!!! We went from P & S to closing in less than 6 weeks!!!

I would highly recommend Mike for any/all Real Estate representation. What a pleasure to work with....

Thank you,

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $550K in Milton, MA.
My husband and I were first time home buyers and met Mike at an open house that he was hosting. We were immediately impressed with his warmth and knowledge, so decided to set up a time to meet with him to talk more about our house search. Not only was Mike incredibly informative, he also was incredibly patient, taking the time to answer our many, many questions throughout the process, from searching for a house to putting together an offer to getting through the inspection to the closing. More impressive was Mike's responsiveness -- neither my husband nor I have ever worked with anyone, in any capacity, who responds to emails and phone calls as quickly as Mike. Without exaggeration, it was unusual if Mike didn't respond to us within an hour, even during the evenings and weekends. Given all of the stressors of the house buying process, knowing we could quickly get our questions answered was definitely reassuring! Similarly, we ended up putting in offers on two houses (before our third was accepted) and each time Mike completed the necessary paperwork for us almost immediately (again, despite the fact that we submitted each offer after attending an open house over the weekend).

Mike grew up in Milton and continues to live with his family in the South Shore, so he knows the area very well. However, in addition to his expertise and knowledge about neighborhoods and property values, one of the reasons we loved working with Mike was because he also has his contractor's license. When he accompanied us to open houses, he was able to speak knowledgeably and give advice about structural aspects of the houses (things like condition of the roof, types of wiring, potential plumbing concerns, etc.) that we would have no idea how to evaluate on our own.

In addition to Mike's responsiveness and knowledge, he also is very personable and very well-connected within the local real estate communities. Knowing that he had good relationships with sellers' agents, lenders, our home inspector, and others also eased our minds and helped the buying process go smoothly.

Ultimately, we can't say enough good things about Mike. We feel very lucky that he was there to guide us through buying our first home and if we decide to move at some point in the future, he would without a doubt be the first person we called.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $900K in Milton, MA.
I have worked with many realtors over the course of my life and Mike is in a league by himself. He is extremely knowledgeable about the market as a whole and individual property issues. My wife and I found his advice and insight to be sound and based on good data. He is extremely responsive as well. Finally, he is a personable individual who is a pleasure to interact with. In short I have absolutely nothing but positive things to say about my experience with Mike.
