Mike was extremely helpful, responsive and knowledgeable when it came time to buying my first home. Mike worked around our schedules to show us homes (nights and weekends) and was very patient as he walked us through the process of first-time home ownership. I had always heard about how stressful buying a home is, especially if you are new to the process, but I never felt stressed or overwhelmed things to Mike's steady approach. He listened to our precise qualifications of what we were (and were not) looking for in a house and consistently showed us homes that were within our budget and parameters. It was a very smooth process. I couldn't be happier with Mike's representation and will be happy to have him sell our house when the time comes.
Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $150K in Boulevard Heights, Saint Louis, MO.
Mike was a HUGE help when my Fiance and I were getting ready to purchase our first home. He pointed us to all the people we needed to talk with, helped up work out a budget for what we could afford and always was enthusiastic to show us houses no matter the price or location. Mike found us our perfect home! It was not even in our budget but he helped us make an offer that would be accepted and was just as happy as we were when the sellers said yes! He continues to stay in contact with us and I would reccommend him to anyone who is looking from a first time buyer to a mansion in Ladue! He is professional, personable, and well informed!
Thanks again Mike!!
Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $600K in Wildwood, MO.
Mike helped me and my family with our relocation from Chicago to St. Louis in late 2009. We were able to spend some time in corporate housing while looking for our permanent residence and got to know Mike and his ability very well. Mike was extremely professional, very punctual, and had a vast knowledge of the market and neighborhoods in the St. Louis area. Mike was able to share key insights on schools, churches, parks, activities, traffic patterns and other key considerations critical when buying a house. Mike was also very patient with us as we were determined to take our time so we could find the perfect house. He worked very well with our company’s relocation team and he keeps the process fun for you. Mike helped us to find homes that met the requirements and prices that we were looking for, which means that he is a good listener and does not try to show you houses beyond your budget or means. In the end, Mike found our perfect home. I can say that with complete honesty. We found a neighborhood in Wildwood that met exactly what we were looking for and I have to hand it to Mike. Without him, we would not have found that dream home.

Mike is awesome. He only showed us houses that were in our budget. I refered him to a friend of mine and he also had a great experience with Mike. I would refer him to anyone buying a house in the Saint Louis area.
