"Mike worked with us on two different transactions, once as sellers and once as buyers. Both times he came armed with a solid grasp of the market, and a can-do attitude. He is fastidious and pays attention to every detail. Mike employed very creative and outside of the box marketing techniques that most realtors would not consider. He is very personable, honest, and easy to work with. Bottom line is he gets the job done. We will definitely reach out to him again the next time we buy or sell."
