Michael Riese is radically professional, strategic, and sophisticated in identifying creative options and finding optimal solutions.
Our story: my husband decided to retire, and we immediately wanted to begin the next chapter of our lives in Sonoma or Napa.
My career in professional services has taught me the value of client service, but life has also revealed how rare excellent service is. Michael is extremely professional, AND has an amazing attention to detail and care for his client's mental health! He also has a network of excellent service providers (home cleaners, stagers, contractors) that sustain his high exceedingly high quality of client service and made our move a breeze.
Here's the the reveal: We met Michael in September, listened to his thoughts on the market (which reflected ours) and took his advice to wait until October. We never made it to market, accepted a great offer in early October, and closed on November 9.
Michael made what could have been a chaotic, even traumatic, time for us as smooth and even an enjoyable experience. I appreciate having met and worked with Michael. He completely altered my previously not so wonderful perspective on the profession!
