Sold a Single Family home in 2010 in Cleveland, GA.
I contacted Michael prior to my relocation to Georgia in 2008, and it is rare in this day to find a person with impeccable work ethic and honesty, someone who possesses a sincere desire to strive and deliver exactly what his clients are searching for in a home. He provides the highest quality of service and is extremely well versed of the real estate industry as a whole, brings remarkable knowledge of the Georgia/North Georgia market. What I like most about Michael is his honesty and attention he gave to my housing needs and his knowledge of the properties in this area. His experience is such that he not only acts as a realtor but also has the skillset of an appraiser and most importantly an inspector. He points out property details in a positive way while has an eye for details from an inspection perspective. It’s been 5 years and now time to downsize and I am looking for Michael to help sell my beautiful home. He has advised me on what the “true” market value is on my home and the best listing price to create interest and look forward to working with him. This letter of gratitude and appreciation is year’s delinquent, but still want to recognize your professionalism and character. I am most thankful for your attention to the selling of my home as well as my future housing needs. Your name is the only one on my list for friends or co-workers who may buy or sell a home and yes your welcome for the referrals!!
It was a pleasure to meet and work with Mike. I really liked his style, and he did a super job for us. We were almost ready to give up on our search for a second home, but Mike found us a great little place and we couldnt be happier. We feel we were well represented, and Mike helped us through the purchase from beginning to end. He helped us with Inspectors, Utility companies, numerous contractors for the small problems we found with the Home and even found a great attorney for us. There were trees that needed to be taken down on the property, and he oversaw the whole process for us. I know he must have driven out to the house countless times to check on things. We were so grateful for all he did. I am so glad we found Mike, and I would recommend him to our friends, actually we already have. Thx Mike! (btw...its hard for me to give anyone 5 stars for anything, but if I could Mike would definitely deserve it.) :)
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Lawrenceville, GA.
Michael has listed and sold 2 of my properties so far. Very detail oriented, and I trust him completely with the handling of my affairs. Could not think of anyone else that I would be willing to use for my Real Estate transactions. He has helped me tremendously and has the necessary skills and education required to be successful in this industry.
Would not recommend. Missed our original closing date due to his not scheduling our appt, yet he told us he personally spoke with the closing attorney and we were "scheduled as planned".
We weren't local and had to make trips to look at homes. He didn't take that into consideration and acted as if we should work around his schedule.
His unprofessional conduct such as texts and emails over actually speaking and even more so after he knew we spoke to the closing attorneys office ourselves and found out that he lied about our closing date. His concern (in a text) was "what did they say about me", NEVER an apology for the lies he told for not scheduling our closing, which we found out about via our lender 3 days before closing. We pretty much took over doing everything ourselves as to not have to deal with him at all.
Holy recommend using the listing agent if the only other option is this realtor!!!!!!!
"Since we were long distance buyers, we really appreciated Mike's website and the ability to communicate with Michael via e-mail. Based on the information we received, we scheduled a weekend showing and then made an offer on a property. During the negotiation process, Michael provided us with valuable advice, and helped us make a clean deal, with everything being taken care of at closing. Very cordial, very cooperative, well organized."
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Demorest, GA.
Michael did a great job for us. We had been searching for a property for over 2 years, and he had probably shown us over 20 properties Im sure, before we actually decided on one. The purchase was smooth and Michael helped and guided us through the whole process. He was always available, even late in the evenings when we had a question. We are pleased with the Home we purchased.
Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $100K in Cleveland, GA.
We Purchased a home using Mr Fain as our realtor and he seemed to working with the person selling the house more than working for us. When we were finally able to move into our home, we discovered that there were more problems than what was reported to us and Mr. Fain knew about a lot of them. When we contacted him about the problems with this home we were put on hold indefinitely. We have spent $20,000 dollars on this house so far and it will probably take another $15,000 to complete what needs to be done.
The sad thing is, my wife, daughter and I lost everything we had to a fire in March of 2010 and we totally trusted Mr Fain to find a descent home for us but we were duped.
Our experience with him was something we wish no one would have to deal with.
Michael helped us with our purchase of a Cabin in the Helen area. He was a true professional and really looked out for our best interests. There was so much we learned from Mike during the process and he made us feel very comfortable the entire time, from our offer up until closing. And he found us a GREAT Cabin for our weekend getaways. I would definitely recommend Mike, it was a pleasure working with him.
