Unparalleled Service with Uncompromising Results
"I recently sold a home through Michael. It was my parent’s home and full of decades of family memories. As such, it was an emotional and personally a difficult time. What I appreciated most is that Michael took the time to listen. Sure, he covered all the bases regarding the marketing strategy, negotiation and successful sale but over and above that, he took the time to consider the person selling the home and what the transaction meant in human terms. I would recommend him." Jay Richardson
"Michael has a ton of experience. Knowing that he has experience in selling and buying houses in the Seattle and surrounding area during multiple high and lows on the market made me feel more confident about the information he was giving us. His experience is valuable in helping to not buy a house that will be difficult to sell later, having insight as to why a house is still on the market and when we should move fast.
We were able to find a beautiful home and make an offer that was immediately accepted. Michael sat down with us ahead of time and took us through the process of what we needed to do in order to successfully make an offer on a house. He helped make sure we were pre-approved and verified we could make an offer on the house we wanted. We were able to buy our dream home at the selling price and without a bidding war.
He was incredibly responsive and was able to get us into our house as the first people to view and make an offer. We found a house within 3 days of physically looking.
Michael is very thoughtful and had great insight to the houses we looked at. He was well connected and as we moved forward in the process was able to answer all of our concerns, connect us with professionals to help move us to the next step and put us at ease with some of our concerns. Michael helped everything move smoothly and quickly through the process." - Michelle Sundquist
"Michael has been my "agent of choice" for several years. I have always found him to be honest and encouraging, both when selling and buying my homes. He is knowlegeable, and always has my best interests at heart. One of the most appreciable qualities he has is the ability to explain your options in a practical, easy-to-understand manner, and lets you make your own decisions without pressure. I would highly recommend him, and I will personally never use another agent!" Liz Ford
"We have bought two houses with Michael and sold one. All of them had difficult circumstances that made them a chore to close. Michael was patient, extremely knowledgeable about all of our options and we always felt taken care of. No type of commission pressure. We feel like Michael really cares about us and our situation and works hard to help us get what WE wanted. He is the BEST. We will never use anyone else." Alan Combs
"Michael was very helpful to us even though we had specifications that we demanded be met. This meant that a lot of time was required, some of it just flat waiting for places that met our requirements, during which time Michael was always positive and encouraging. When it came time to sell our home he was instructive with suggestions about what would help most without being pushy. His sense of humor made him a pleasure to work with for us." Kevin K
"After interviewing several real estate brokers we chose a team that seemed most familiar with the areas we were interested in, had a track record of experience, and also happened to be personally recommended to me by an old college friend. Michael was great throughout the process and continues to call me. He dealt with hiccups and my demands of having many contractors come in and bid on potential repairs during the inspection process. I liked him so much I invited him to a party I was having. He still calls and keeps in touch. I looked for over a year on various websites before I took the plunge with a Realtor. I recommend him highly" - Joe M. Guerricabeitia
"My husband and I really appreciated Michael's professionalism, personality and patience as we set upon the sometimes anxious task of buying our first house. Our market search lasted more than a year, with several breaks in between. Michael held our hands through the parts of the process where we most needed it and let us provide direction where we felt most confident. I recommend hiring Michael if you'd like a real estate agent who knows the ropes and is responsive to your real estate needs. Besides being a knowledgeable professional, he has a sense of humor and is a pleasant person to work with." - Andrea James
"I was looking for aprofessional and competent real estate agent. Michael far exceeded those expectations by the professional way he presented his marketing plan and credentials, including the detailed explanation of how you arrived at the correct pricing of my condo. He answered my interview questions over and above what I was hoping for as far as technical expertise. He spent a large amount of time on the details of prepping my condo for the best entry into the market with his visual tour, internet exposure, staging flair, and taking photos that showed the place at its best. Michael was very friendly and caring through the process, even asking for my input on the verbiage of the flyer and visual tour and staging ideas. I thought our collaboration made for the perfect product . . . evidenced selling my place in only two days for $1,000 above asking price!!! I highly recommend Michael as a professional and knowledgeable real estate agent." - Dorothy Malinski
"I was absolutely thrilled with the way you treated me during my home sale and my new condominium purchase. It was a lot less painful that I thought it would be and I was especially appreciative that you came when I signed closing papers. That was above and beyond the call of duty...Thank you for your professionalism and gracious service." -Kay Adams
"The most positive part of our experience was that things happened exactly as we were told to expect. Patricia and Michael sold our house in ten days!" - Virginia and Charlie
"Our first real estate experience was smooth and care free....thanks Patricia and Michael for making our home buying experience an easy to understand process!" - Bill and Lori Hundhousen
"I would like to thank you for your professional assistance in helping us locate a home. I am very impressed with you and your professional knowledge in your field. Your efficient use of time and organizational abilities were outstanding. We look forward to working with you in the future." -Tom Rasmussen
