“ Mike was very easy to get along with, very friendly & helpful. I got feedback almost daily on progress. Very satisfied, Mike worked very hard to sell my house in a difficult market. ”
“ Mike's marketing campaign was totally professional and outstanding. It resulted in a sale well prior to auction (after only two open inspections) with a very good offer which I accepted. The results of Mike's online campaign were spectacular to say the least. Throughout this process, Mike has been tireless in his efforts on my behalf and generous with his time. He has acted totally professional and it has been a real pleasure to deal with someone who is so unfailingly pleasant and courteous. ”
“ After a chance meeting at an open inspection Mike promptly came to look at my mothers unit which we were selling. Instantly we were impressed with Mike's demeanor and professionalism. Throughout the whole process Mike kept us up to date with the process. it only took 3 open inspections to sell. We would recommend Mike to anyone wishing to sell a property. Summing up an absolute pleasure to deal with. ”
“ We were very fortunate to have chosen Mike to sell our house. He worked very hard for us as vendors to achieve a very quick sale with a positive outcome. He kept in constant contact with us and was very helpful with suggestions to help achieve that outcome. He was truthful about expected costs involved and made sure we were aware of all avenues open to promote and advertise our property. He knew we were on a fairly tight time frame and acted accordingly with maximum "open inspections" and contacting any potential buyers that he knew of. Our house sold in under three weeks and achieved the price we wanted. Mike was courteous, and professional and was an excellent representative for his company who went above and beyond for his clients. ”
