Michael, who came recommended by family friends who had run him several times around town for nearly a year before finding their dream home, lived up to and exceeded all expectations (though we "only" ended up needing about four months of his time, with all of our demands!). His patience, responsiveness, and honesty throughout won our respect and lasting loyalty. Michael responds within minutes to texts and a couple of hours to emails. (And yeah, my wife and I might be Millennials, but we sometimes pick up the phone to call as well, and Michael picked up immediately each of those two or three times). There were several homes we liked but Michael pulled us aside and pointed out that the quality of renovation something in which we'd never consider ourselves experts just wasn't what he'd want for us. And there were homes Michael liked that we didn't, and he took that inpatient stride as well. There were days we saw five homes spread across three neighborhoods and we didn't fall in love with any, and there were days we visited five homes and absolutely loved four! In this market, it was crucial to have an expert like Michael in our corner, walking us through the process of making offers and eventually closing as first-time home buyers. My wife and I unreservedly recommend him to our friends, and you an anonymous internet friend reading this should believe us when we say we think he's right for you as well!
