Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $600K in Admiral, Seattle, WA.

I’ve bought and sold a house with Michael, and I’m in the process now of buying again with him. I truly can’t imagine working with any other real estate agent in Seattle. He has such deep expertise about the business of real estate – from pricing strategy to offer strategy to negotiation tactics. And he provides the best customer service I’ve ever seen, in any business. When you call Michael, he picks up the phone. When you text him, he calls you back immediately. He is on top of your business and is always working hard on your behalf.

Michael is never just trying to sell a house to make a commission. He truly cares about his clients and does everything he can to match you with the house that fits you perfectly. And because he’s so knowledgeable and knows the ins and outs of every neighborhood, he gives you great advice and makes sure you’re thinking about the right things.

He has great relationships with other agents and developers in the business, so if you’re ever in a competitive bid situation, it’s likely that he knows the selling agent and can help make sure your offer stands out from the rest.

On top of all of that, he’s just a great, fun guy who makes a stressful process a lot easier. You feel confident that he has your back and is going to take care of you. I really can’t recommend Michael highly enough.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $450K in North College Park, Seattle, WA.

Michael and Hania Younis were our 'realtor team' for our recent home purchase in North Seattle--I can't say enough good things about them, and have recommended them highly to many friends that are currently in the home search process!

We found our new home on the first day viewing houses, which was incredible, but a little sad, because we really enjoyed hanging out with Michael and Hania! They say kids have a sixth sense for people, and it was only a few minutes after my two year old daughter met them that she was asking to hold their hands or wanting them to pick her up; she's not like that usually, either. They both really are just radiant, kind people.

We ended up with a house that we still can't believe we found--and we truly wouldn't have even gotten it without Michael and Hania. There's no way we could have gotten anything better, it's an amazing place, and the circumstances around the purchase were just one amazing 'coincidence' after another--and I say 'coincidence' in quotes because, really, it was because of their expertise and hard work that it worked out!

One of the craziest parts of the process was that, as we were preparing for the first home tour, we were narrowing down properties to look at; Michael threw in a few of his own recommendations, and I looked through them and 'vetoed' a few of them for various reasons. But Michael actually called me and said he really wanted to leave one of them on the list, because he 'wanted us to see a new build, and it is just new a sexy and I just have a feeling about it.'

Well, we didn't end up buying that house--we bought another unit in the 4-unit setup, and it was NOT EVEN LISTED on the MLS. Michael called the realtor of the front units while we were viewing the front one and found out that the back units were also for sale and got us into that house to see it. So, when I say there's no way we could have gotten this house without him, you know I'm not kidding. It was crazy all over the place. They were reviewing offers on the two back units the very next day, and if we had not been able to submit our offer right then, we would have lost it. Michael and Hania were on top of it every step of the way and everything just...worked. It was more than a relief when home-buying is usually so stressful and messy.

Can't say enough good things about them--they are the Real Deal.

Sold a home in 2014.

We worked with Michael to sell our condo in Seattle and Michael is amazing. He is SUPER responsive, always on the top of the progress, very easy to work with. There were some unexpected roadblocks during the close and Michael was able to work with us and seller's agent to tackle the issue without jeopardizing our selling price. Would recommend Michael to our families and friends.  More Less
