Working with Michael and his team was an incredible experience for my wife and I as we navigated the complex process of buying a new home and selling our first one. Michael's extensive experience in the Pacific Northwest and his background as an appraiser made him the perfect guide for our journey. From our initial conversations, Michael helped us understand our financial options and connected us with knowledgeable contacts. His detail-oriented and diligent work ethic was evident as he devised a step-by-step plan to address potential selling issues, utilizing his professional and cost-effective network. We opted for a buy-first, sell-later strategy with a one-month turnaround goal. Thanks to Michael's preparation and guidance, we executed this plan smoothly, maximizing our home's potential and ensuring both a happy seller and buyer. When it came to purchasing a new home, Michael was with us every step of the way. He pre-filtered options and provided initial feedback on properties, allowing us to focus on homes that met our criteria. Michael scheduled tours according to our availability and provided valuable insights during visits, respecting our space and listening to our feedback. His expertise was evident in his analysis of resale value, neighborhood dynamics, material quality, and pricing competitiveness. When we found our ideal home, Michael offered expert opinions on its appraisal, supported by detailed notes and data. His communication was perfectly balanced—neither overbearing nor insufficient. Even when personal obligations arose, Michael's team ensured we were always informed and prioritized. Their efficient communication and teamwork prevented any issues from slipping through the cracks. Overall, working with Michael and his team was a seamless and enjoyable experience. Their knowledge, support, and efficiency made our home buying and selling journey stress-free. We highly recommend Michael and his team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. They truly go above and beyond to ensure their clients' needs are met and expectations exceeded.

I worked with Michael to buy my first house, and it was exceptional. He provided thorough guidance, patiently explaining every aspect of the properties we toured. His dedication to educating us about the process was invaluable, ensuring I felt confident and informed throughout. Being out of state, he went above and beyond to tour houses virtually and gave us detailed video commentary about the houses so that we could easily shortlist the ones we wanted to see in person. Even in person, he never rushed us from one house to another and answered all our questions. He was very knowledgeable about the market and provided us with multiple strategies on structuring the offer for higher chances of success. We were debating between a few houses and one had an offer review date with a tight deadline. Michael was always available to negotiate/update offers and he never pushed us to sign a contract that we weren't comfortable with and I really appreciated that. In addition to buying a house at a price that we really liked, we are grateful to have built a relationship with Michael that allows us to be confident in any future real estate transactions with him.

Michael was my agent when I was buying my first home. As a first-time home buyer, I was quite nervous, but Michael made the whole process incredibly easy. I had a very limited geographic area I wanted to buy my home in and he helped me understand the market conditions and the kinds of homes I would find in my price range. When we toured homes, he helped me understand the state of the home and get a ballpark of any big repairs that would be needed. When I found a home for sale I really wanted, he moved fast to close the deal within hours and navigate a low appraisal contingency to get a big discount on the price after the offer had been accepted. Thank you, Michael!

We have been Michael's client for years. Michael helped us buy and sell our primary house. We couldn’t be happier with his service! He is very knowledgeable about market trends, locations, and he’s great at marketing. We have properties in a few cities, and we have experience with multiple highly-rated agents. Michael stands above the rest because he invests his time to make sure everything runs perfectly. When we last sold our house, Michael coached us on what to improve / tend to before listing, then he coordinated staging, pictures, video, 3D tour, and marketing materials. This all ensured we received great offers, and sold our house for more than we expected. Michael is for sure our go-to guy for real estate needs in the Seattle area.

Michael made navigating the first-time home buying journey a breeze! As complete rookies in the real estate market, I honestly don't think my wife and I could have landed our dream home without Michael's expertise and unwavering support. From day one, his communication was exceptional. He patiently explained every step, keeping us informed and confident throughout the process. His knowledge of the market and negotiation skills were truly impressive, securing us the perfect house despite the fierce competition. But Michael's impact went beyond just the technical aspects. He instinctively understood my anxieties as a first-time buyer, always available to answer questions and calm my nerves. His dedication to making us feel like his top priority never wavered, even during the busiest season and while facing personal exigencies. His responsive team seamlessly backed him up, ensuring swift action whenever appropriate. Without Michael, I truly doubt we would have had the confidence or knowledge to navigate this complex process. He transformed a potentially stressful experience into a smooth and empowering journey. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone searching for a knowledgeable, dedicated, and truly exceptional real estate agent.
