Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Ohio City - West Side, Cleveland, OH.
I couldn't recommend Sean highly enough for any process but ESPECIALLY if you are looking/selling in the Ohio City area. Sean has an intricate knowledge for the area that we leaned on heavily during the process of finding a home. He knows everything to look for, has a great feel for pricing, and a good understanding of how transactions will evolve.
The nicest thing I could say about Sean professionally speaking is that he is both a low-pressure but highly responsive agent, which is a difficult combination to pull off.
Personally, Sean is just a really good guy, the type you'd have a couple beers with after looking at houses all day. We felt like we were the only clients he had at that time, which, judging by the number of signs around the neighborhood with his name on them, clearly wasn't the case.
The only thing I couldn't comment on personally is 'negotiation skill' as we founds such a great home so early in its time on the market that we needed to be fairly aggressive. I would say though that Sean offered his pricing advice on other properties we looked at and he turned out to be very accurate in hindsight.

Sean was very helpful and responsive to our inquiries and requests during a home-buying process that had some quirks due to multiple inspections and mortgage re-negotiations. We would definitely recommend him again.

he got the job done. we closed and it took us about 3 months from finding to getting our keys. he is knowledgeable about loan types areas and even the houses themselves he is awesome and i would recommend him to everyone and i actually have to 3 people so far :-)
Sean, was great and always responsive through email or phone calls. Sean knew the area and was upbeat and positive regarding the sale of my house. He was always professional and willing to answer my questions and listen when I had doubts. I would highly recomment Sean especially in the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood if you are looking to sell or buy.

As first time home buyers we didn't quite know what to expect. Sean walked us through the entire process and answered all of our questions thoroughly and promptly. He never pressured us to compromise on what was important to us and never tried to "sell" us on a house that we weren't interested in. In one case, we pulled up to a house and knew we didn't like it. He could tell from our expressions that we weren't interested and he told us right away that we didn't even need to check out the inside, we could just drive to the next house. Our search took longer than expected but he was with us the whole way, ultimately leading us to a house that was everything we wanted and more!
Through my housing search I was contacting each agent as they appeared with each house on whatever site I happened to be on. The first house I went to with Sean was definitely not for me and he didn't sugar coat the place just to sell it. This honesty and his easy to talk to nature made me go back to him for every house I looked like from then on. Sean was always available and got back to me every time I contacted him in a timely matter. I could not be happier with him as an agent and if I ever buy a house again I will definitely see if he is still around to help me.

Sean helped us in purchasing our first home, and we felt completely at ease throughout the process as a result of his knowledge, attention, and tenacity. Sean showed us a variety of homes based on our needs and wants and constantly adjusted his search based on our feedback in order to help us find the perfect home. He was available any time we needed him, and we felt like he made us a priority at all times. Should we move at any point in the future, I would absolutely work with Sean again, and I highly recommend his services to anyone looking for their new home.
