As first-time home buyers, my husband and I were anxious to navigate the complicated and lengthy home buying process. However, Mike and Michelle were there every step of the way. They answered our many, many questions and helped us understand every aspect of the process – from the market environment to the inspection process. They were both there day and night with a quick response and always made us feel like a top priority. In addition, they are incredibly knowledgeable of the Tampa area and helped us to narrow down what we were looking for in the most desirable neighborhoods.
Most importantly to us, they helped us through the ups and downs that came along with the home-buying process and were always there to encourage us and let us know we would find the right home for our family. And they were right!
We could not have asked for better advocates for us during this process. We would recommend Mike and Michelle to anyone who is looking to list or buy a home!
Mike has helped me a great deal. I moved to Tampa recently and didn't know the area. Mike was very instrumenral in finding a perfect home for me. He was very knowledgeable, helpful and responsive - a perfect combination in a realtor.
They were very helpful and attentive and it was a pleasure to work with them! They took great photos of our condo. They pulled a list of the local sales in the area and told us what a reasonable price would be to sell our place and they were spot on! We sold our place in just a few weeks for the price we wanted. They were very competent and made what could have been a very stressful process, really easy. I definitely recommend them!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $925K in Golf View, Tampa, FL.
Mike & Michelle are the best team that you could wish for on your side. We were searching South Tampa for a family home (moving from Chicago) and from the initial contact all the way through to the final closing they were amazing.
They pride themselves on being responsive and it shows, they respond to emails and return calls incredibly fast. They are also proactive and very on top of the whole process - whenever there was a problem, or whenever we had a question, they would take care of it as quickly as they could. At one point we had a problem with our appraisal from the lender and Michelle jumped on it, she quickly wrote up an email for the lender pointing out the issues and listing alternative comps, called the lender, and then helped us search for alternative lenders just in case. They also helped us negotiate with the sellers (helping us save some money) when it came time to close and walked us through the whole process, answering our many questions and figuring out the best way to approach different issues.
Outside of their professional ability they are also just great people. We can't recommend them highly enough and we wish them the best!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Oakford Park, Tampa, FL.
We recently left our previous Realtor in hopes of finding someone who was willing to listen to exactly what we were looking for and not to rush us into anything and that's when we ran into Mike Grizzell at a showing in Tampa. He was calm, knowledgeable, and extremely fast at responding to any our questions (sometimes very dumb questions) with very detailed answers ANY day of the week.
We are overly pleased with how easy Mike and Michelle made the contract-closing process for us as I am in school and my wife works over 40hrs a week. We recommend them to anyone who wants a professional real estate couple who are also tech savvy enough to get you best deal in an increasingly cut throat market.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Lithia, FL.
Mike helped my fiancé and I sell her home and buy my first home. He basically held our hand through what we consider a hectic and confusing process. He was always available and responded immediately to questions and concerns. I just started a new job which prevented me from attending a few important meetings but Mike was always there in my absence.
I absolutely love our new home and don't wish to move ever again but if I had to Mike and Michelle would be hired right away!
This was our first time buying a home. Michelle was so patient as we learned the process of searching for a home and discovering what we did and did not like. She answered all of our questions right away and made sure we understood all our options.
There came a point in our search where we were hoping for some home features that are hard to find in the area we were looking. Rather than just replying "no" to my email, she called me to let me know that these features were rare - but offered great suggestions on how we could potentially add them to our home. We had tried another realtor before who simply told us to change our criteria, but Michelle understood that we really had our hearts set and helped us find a solution!
Once we were ready to make an offer on a home, she offered guidance in negotiating price with the seller and was even able to get us seller concessions.
Throughout the whole process, she communicated regularly and on time and was an advocate for our needs. We definitely recommend her!
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Old Seminole Heights, Tampa, FL.
We were referred to Mike from a friend of ours, and we were overly impressed with his skills and knowledge as a Realtor! Effective communication is something I feel is beyond important when buying or selling a home, and Mike could not have done a better job doing just that. Every phone call, email and text message had a timely response! The thing we appreciated most, was his honest and professional opinions. Not knowing the industry, values, and a lot of protocol during the selling process, Mike made sure we understood all of our options, and had our best interest in mind. I have could not recommend a better team for buying or selling!

The Mike and Michelle Team were able to sell my home even with all the opsticols associated with a Short Sale. They were professional, kept me informed and never gave up. I would work with them again in the future.
