Michael was a fantastic partner through helping me buy my first home at age 23. He was always responsive, no matter what time of the day. He was able to meet me for showings around my tough work schedule; squeezing in time during lunches and after 6pm. His clean and honest process from our initial meeting through closing was fantastic. He was clearly not pushing me to buy just any house so he could collect a commission and move on to his next client. He, from the beginning, wanted to make sure that I was ready to buy, and was buying a property that fit both my time horizon and goals. 4 months after closing on my house, I am still in contact with Michael, and will continue to use him as my preferred realtor as I pursue further real estate purchases in the near future.
Michael offered a unique experience being both an architect and realtor. He was able to guide me through the pitfalls of purchasing an older home, showing potential issues only someone with knowledge of the building process would notice. He helped select areas that met my criteria and showed great patience in taking me to a number of houses before finding the right fit. As a final bonus, his negotiating prowess resulted in me getting the home below market value with a new roof and sewer line included. I have recommended him to several individuals since and will continue to use him as my agent moving forward.
Michael is FANTASTIC. He's always in your corner and makes you feel like his only client. He fought for us on a number of properties. Michael's a licensed architect, so he understands the structural, pragmatic and aesthetic elements are involved in buying/selling a house. He's not pushy and his patience is unmatched. He did a very good job at not telling us "no," so we were able to explore ALL of our options (at the expense of all his weekends). I will continue to sing Michael's praises; he made our home-buying experience an absolute breeze.
Michael was amazingly helpful through the entire process. This was our first home purchase, and Michael was able to find my fiance and I the perfect house in our price range in a great neighborhood. He was able to negotiate the price to below asking, in a market where everything else was selling at 10% or more above the asking price. He is also very well versed in building codes and practices. He would recognize many potential pitfalls on a house without us wasting time and money on home inspectors and frivolous offers (Before we found Michael, we spent some time with other agents who didn't know anything about what to look for structurally/electrically/mechanically). He also knew all of the obstacles and steps involved with the purchase and walked us through all of them very patiently. Michael clearly wanted the best for us and wanted us to be happy with our purchase for many years. We couldn't be happier with our experience with Michael and certainly hope to do all of our future real estate transactions with him on our side.
As a first time home buyer, Michael was incredibly helpful through the entire process of understanding how to qualify for a home, what was in my price range, all the way to negotiating bids and finally closing. He has stellar negotiating skills and was always immediately responsive with questions and next steps.
