Michael Klein is one of the best real estate agents in Hoboken, NJ. My husband and I met Michael at an open house about a year before we were ready to move. Most agents we met at the time either bombarded us with emails for a week before disappearing or completely disregarded our questions since we were not ready to buy right away. Michael stood out by actually listening to our needs, advising on both our financial goals and real estate options, and kept an open dialogue as we approached our move date. When we did begin our search, Michael sat with us to review “must haves” vs “nice to haves” and pointed out nuances to different buildings we had never anticipated – such as inefficient floor plans, risky flood zones and potential challenges re-selling in the future. In the end, Michael was able to guide us to make the best decision possible and put in a very strong offer. Even after finalizing the purchase and having our offer accepted, Michael and his team made every effort to guide us through the closing process. As first-time homebuyers, we never questioned next steps, who to contact or how to schedule inspections, mortgage assessments, etc. Not a single question went unanswered in a timely manner throughout the entire process regardless of time or day. I would highly recommend Michael as THE real estate agent to use if you are moving to or within Hoboken. When it is time for us to move again, Michael will certainly be selling it for us and finding us our next perfect home in Hoboken.
Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.0M in Hoboken, NJ.
Michael is the best Realtor I have ever worked with.
- Hoboken expert: I've leaned on Michael for recommendations in town that go well beyond what I would normally expect from a Realtor.
- Final home walkthrough: incredibly thorough, creating a list of fixes that I would have missed.
- Accommodating: when a parking garage issue arose he went out of his way to step in and find an interim solution for me.
My former landlord was so impressed by Michael that he decided to utilize Michael to find a new tenant when I left.
I will definitely be using Michael when I decide to sell my property in the future.
Sold a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $1.0M in Hoboken, NJ.
I have now worked with Michael on multiple purchases/sales. He is very informative and goes out of his way to make everything easier on you. He is also very familiar with the area. I would not use or TRUST anyone more then him when buying or selling a place.
When I first met him, he was seller's agent when I was buying a condo in Hoboken, NJ and I realized I chose wrong agent for myself.
Without hesitant when I decided to sell my condo, I chose him and it was great decision. He thinks and acts in your shoes with his expertise. Responsive, reasonable with great attitude and pleasant manner.
Michael got our listing by keeping me up to date on not only the Hoboken market but more importantly on the current value of apartments in my building. He did this for several years prior to us even thinking about selling.
Once we decided to list, he did an excellent job helping us get our apartment ready for sale.
As we no longer lived in town he handled all of the important details.
Our experience with Michael was outstanding through the negotiation process as well. He consistently went above and beyond the call of duty.
Found a tenant for a Multi Family home in Hoboken, NJ.
Michael has provided unparalleled service and support since 2010 when I decided to rent out my condo in Hoboken. Even though he specializes in high-end sales, he has treated me as a top client. My condo has never been vacant since I moved to the Maxwell Place and Michael has assisted me with finding tenants and also in writing and amending leases. Couldn't ask for anything more from a realtor!
We worked with Michael to sell our property in Hoboken. From the first day we met him when we started interviewing realtors, to the day we closed (and beyond), We found Michael to be extremely knowledgeable, professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. He kept us upto date, gave us great advice through the process, and never tired of the numerous phone calls and emails from me! He was great in negotiating with our buyer, and even helped us with the property we were purchasing in another county, even though we were with a different realtor there! (Only because we had signed up with that realtor before we had met Michael!) We would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone who was looking for a realtor. He will make your buying and selling process easier and less stressful.
When I was looking for a rental in the area, I met with several brokers (there are a ton in the area) and Michael was by far the most knowledgeable and helpful. He found us a great deal on a 1-bedroom that satisfied all of my requirements. If you're looking for an experienced agent who really knows the area, I'd highly recommend Michael.
I've used Michael to find tenants for rentals and to sell a couple condos. Michael is always very professional, responsive, and helpful, but most importantly RECEPTIVE to our input and goals. He is upfront and honest with his advice and has a great support team around him at all times. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a trustworthy advisor in such a crazy market.
