Sold a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $500K in Westlake, OH.
Michael did a great job in marketing our property, which turned out to be a short sale. Michael looked in on the house at least weekly since I had to move away, kept in contact regularly with buyers who were interested, and managed to get multiple offers on the table after the house had been on the market for several years (I had gone with a different agent initially). Did not push me to lower my home price, which I eventually did on my own; not sure if he SHOULD have forced me to lower it a bit, but felt no pressure to make pricing changes at any point. Always called me back within a reasonable time frame whenever I called. Helped coordinate contracting for painting, lawn, air conditioning work that needed done on the house since I had moved away. Helped me negotiate a short sale with my bank. Would definitely recommend this responsive, friendly, hard-working and knowledgeable agent to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home. Great knowledge of "the competition" and is probably one of the two or three more visible, high producing agents in northeastern Ohio. The only thing I would possibly fault him for is to fail to motivate me to lower my price sooner; I only did so after an exact model-match home was about to come on the market three doors down that had gone into foreclosure.

An ideal Real Estate Agent should know the local market and trends, be able to respond to your needs and concerns in a very timely manner, respects your wishes, guides you through every process including staging, contract execution and closing. They should also be experienced and tech savvy to maximize your exposure to the community near and far, and above all be personable.
Michael Della Vella is all of the above and more. He was able to help sell our home in less than 5 days in these somewhat uncertain times due to the right pricing, marketing and knowing the reality of real estate market. He was able to give us all the contacts needed to have the best transition to our new home. He was honest and a true professional throughout the process. I had purchased a home from him 10 years ago and my experience was very positive then and only to be reaffirmed again 10 years later. I recommend him without reservation for your real estate needs.
Mr. Della Vella is very professional. He is extremely knowledgeable regarding the real estate market and quickly responds to your questions and concerns. We would highly recommend him as a choice for a real estate agent.

Mr. Della Vella was honest from the start. He absolutley had my famlies best interests in mind. His knowledge in this market is second to none, and his contacts were invaluable. I interviewed several agents prior to meeting Michael and I knew within the first few minutes of our initial conversation that he would deliver. The housing market from a sellers prospective is a bit stressful, and from our first offer to the actual agreed upon price Michael was there to guide us and help in our decision.

Michael helped my husband and I purchase our home and we could not have been happier with the process. Michael's knowledge of the west side of Cleveland as well as his knowledge of homes available in our price range was amazing. He knew what we were looking for and delivered for us in a timely fashion. I would recommend Michael to anyone looking for a home.
