    "I worked with Michael and his team on the sale of my mother's home. After more than 30 years in the house, it was a big and stressful step for us. Michael was very patient and took extra time to answer all of our questions and set expectations of the process. He was very attentive and concerned that my mom was ok every step of the way. I also needed extra help getting the house ready and the folks he recommended to me were just as fabulous to work with and caring as he was. We took his recommendation of staging and professional photography, and along with his team, they made the listing looking unbelievable! His understanding of the area, the market conditions and the value of the home resulted in a full-price offer within 4 days! The closing process went just as smoothly. I can't thank Michael and his team enough for the support they gave both of us during this life transition! Highly recommend!"

    "My wife and I have known Michael and his wife Stacy for several years as friends. Over that time period, we grew to appreciate Michael’s integrity as a real estate agent. It was clear he put his client's interests first and was not just interested in making a sale. When it came time for us to consider moving we selected Michael to represent us in both the sale of our existing home and the purchase of our new home in Bothell. This was a lengthy process, lasting several months, but Michael stood by us all the way and helped us make informed sound decisions during the process. Buying or selling homes can be very stressful. We are glad we had Michael there to help us navigate through the turbulent waters we encountered through the selling and buying process. Perhaps what I appreciated most is that Michael didn’t pressure us to make offers or make decisions just so the deal(s) would close. Several times he pointed out potential issues (e.g. structural, lot limitations, etc.) with homes we were interested in or raised concerns over homes that didn’t quite meet all of our criteria. Again we wanted to make sure we purchased the “right” home, not just “a” home. We appreciated Michael’s use of technology in the buying and selling process which made everything go much smoother and more efficiently. He created customized MLS filters and sent us MLS listings that met our specific criteria. He utilized an E-signature tool that helped us process the paperwork or forms much more effectively. He put together a 3D Virtual Tour of our home that really made our house stand out and “pop” when it entered the market. Michael also did a great job of running interference for us and was in frequent contact with other real estate agents, banks, escrow agents, contractors, etc. to make sure any issues or concerns we had were addressed and that we stayed on track to meet our closing dates. He did a good job of keeping us informed along the way. The world of real estate can be very frustrating and stressful. There is a lot of decision-making, planning, and hard work involved when buying or selling houses! Michael’s professional knowledge, demeanor, and style helped to calm us down every time we were feeling overwhelmed by either the buying or selling process. That enabled us to keep on track and stay focused on all the things we needed to do to prepare our previous house for sale and for buying our new home. Michael was with us, and for us, the entire time we worked together. His efforts and service were very much appreciated!"

    "Michael has a ton of experience. Knowing that he has experience in selling and buying houses in the Seattle and surrounding area during multiple highs 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 into 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."

    "Michael came into our lives in June 2018 when we purchased a home on Camano Island that was going into foreclosure. We didn't know anything about the process. Michael was extremely knowledgeable and handled the transaction quickly and smoothly. He even stopped us from offering over the asking price! Plus, he was fun to work with. In Feb. 2019 our son found a condo in Seattle he was interested in. We suggested that he deal with Michael Smith. He was going to offer less than the asking price but Michael articulated why he felt the unit would sell immediately at the asking price and suggested that our son offer full price. He got the property. A month ago an elderly friend of ours was looking to buy a condo in Marysville. She was going to use the listing agent. We wanted someone that she could trust and who would look out for her best interests, so we strongly suggested that she use Michael. He went above and beyond to help her get her new home. She, like us, now considers Michael a friend. Note: We do not recommend business people to any of our friends or family. It seems that it always comes back to bite us. Michael is the one exception. Use him. You won't regret it."
