Bertha L. Schaumburg, IL (formerly from Hanover Park)

A few specifics would be; your listening skills, taking my worries seriously, talking through each step until I really understood you, telling me what I needed to know even if I didn't ask but should have, being 100% reliable with follow through and keeping me posted (daily) on everything - or nothing. You never judged me when I was emotional or brain weary or scared. Your sense of honesty and fairness was my foundation, your skill and professionalism were the walls, and you covered it all with good humor, and filled the inside with a lot of heart. It may have all been standard procedure for you, but it got me through a difficult time in my life. Thanks."

Virginia K. Lostant, IL (formerly from Schaumburg)
“Mike, we realize a seller needs a realtor as they have the know-how & tools helpful in selling homes. You were informative – you called about every week or ten days to update us on what was happening and told us how many showings there had been and found out what the people liked or disliked about the home. Some other people we know would not hear from their realtor unless they made the call. Anyway, thanks for your help.”

Reshma & Keyur
“Hi, Mike. You are a very special kind of person that transcends into your work. I think that you have a special gift with people…Any salesperson can list a house; it’s what comes after that counts. That’s why people will always come back or refer you to others.”
Kathy S. Indiana (formerly of Elgin)
“Mike, No words can express how grateful I am to you for selling my home and negotiating to get me a “higher than market value” price. You went out of your way to work with my schedule and respect my privacy. I didn’t know real estate agents even cared about those things. I’m so glad that you do. The circumstances under which I sold my home made me anxious at times, but you put me at ease by explaining the whole procedure. You quickly responded to all of my phone calls and emails, which also helped to keep me encouraged that the deadline would be met. Mike, I will gladly recommend you to anyone I know that is seeking a good, caring real estate agent. Thank you again.”
Maureen D. Justice (formerly of Bridgeview)
“We were leery about using a Realtor located in a somewhat distant suburb for a sale. Your market research was very good and your working relationships with fellow realtors were excellent…we also appreciate you making one last phone call during negotiations that resulted in getting that last $1000! We would absolutely recommend your services to others.”

You took care of me by returning all my phone calls and voice mails sooner than expected. You kept me informed about every detail, as I wished. Your high level of professionalism was appropriate and comforting to all involved. I am a very satisfied customer and will do my best to find you when I am ready to relocate again. Don’t you move, Mike! Thanks again.”

“Mike is an “exceptional” Realtor. He explained everything one step ahead of it happening and answered all our questions in a timely and efficient manner. Mike brought qualified potential buyers through our home and worked closely with other Realtors. Our home sold for the expected price within 2 weeks! He put together an excellent sales brochure which drew a lot of attention, both online and on the curb through his signage and information box. Mike explained all costs, which helped us, estimate what we would need to borrow when buying our new home. I would definitely use Mike again, and recommend him to others with complete confidence. Thanks for everything, Mike!!!”

Your service is above and beyond. And while out of town you were excellent. Prompt return calls were expected & received. While both of us are in the mortgage industry & work with realtors on a daily basis – We would highly recommend you to anyone that needed realtor services.”
Ralph & Sharie B. Angola, NY (formerly of Roselle)
“I can’t thank you enough for all of your help! You were very honest with me and explained everything I didn’t understand. You worked around my schedule, and kept me up to date on the info. You gave me your input on the houses we looked at, and the ones we didn’t even waste our time looking at! I found the perfect townhouse with your help, I cant thank you enough! Next time I decide to move, I will definitely use your help! Anyone that I know who may be looking for a house, I will give them your name and number. A++ job!”
Shawn M. Aurora, IL
“Mike, Before working with you, I believed Realtors are expensive and do not provide much benefit. However, you again convinced and proved to me in the purchase of my home that a professional like yourself is able to put in a bid and use tools to negotiate a lower purchase price. Thanks!

We pray so that you will sell a lot of houses in the coming months. My daughter's family is still renting a house in Hoffman Estates. I definitely recommend her and anyone I know to get a hold with you when they want to buy and sell the house. I strongly believe that you are the best and talented realtor who always work with the whole heart to serve the benefits of the clients, not just working for money as many other realtors in the market.

Mark & Vanessa H. Elk Grove Village, IL
“You were awesome. Priced right. Sale in 18 days. The reason I picked you in first place is I because I could see this wasn't your hobby, and you knew the market.

Chuck W. & Bethany C. Aurora / Bloomingdale / Glendale Heights, IL
“Mike was great throughout our entire house search. My wife and I looked at a lot of houses before we found the perfect fit. When we found the house of our dreams we got into a bidding war with another prospective buyer. Mike knew how much the house meant to us and he did everything in his power to try and get us the house, which he ultimately did. Mike was patient and honest with us and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great realtor.”
Spencer B. Wheaton, IL
“We were really pleased with all the effort you put forth to sell the house.

Mitch P. Formerly of Hawthorne Woods
“Being first-time home buyers, our biggest concern was not only finding the right home for the right price, but also finding a good/trustful realtor. We believe working with you was one of our best experiences. You never looked like someone who just wanted to get a house sold to us. You had patience, you always listened to us and more importantly, you valued our needs; some of which went as specific as the direction of the front door.
I remember a few houses that we saw in Roselle and Palatine where you showed us not only what is good in the house, but also what is “not good’ and needs a fix; things which we may not have noticed or [knew] about. Being first-time home buyers that gave us a lot of confidence. You have always answered all our questions no matter how small they were and helped us understand [the] real estate process.
We probably saw everything that happens in a real estate deal, and without you it would not have been a comfortable process and great deal as it turned out. You constantly engaged us with the discussions happening with the seller’s team and suggested the right way of price negotiations. We believe your true professionalism and experience showed up in your dealings/negotiations with the seller’s agent and helping bring down the asking price.
What we also liked about this whole process is that you never forced your opinion or suggestion on us; you gave us your view-point, talked about the pros-cons and then let us make the final decision. We never got an impression that you were trying to hurry us. You gave us time and space to think and make a decision.
We learned a lot in this whole home-buying process and I can tell you that you made it look easy and comfortable for us even though we had to go through many days of negotiations. We would for sure recommend your services to our friends and for all the reasons above, Thank you for helping us find our first home. We truly appreciate everything that you have done for us in finding a home.
Warm Regards and wishing you, your family and RE/MAX a spectacular new year!!!”
Nagendra M. Hoffman Estates, IL
“You have remained professional, patient and respectful in the process of buying our home. From educating us on the process, answering our questions at any hour and supporting our objects in any way possible you remains always helpful. You will be recommended to anybody in the home buying position we come into contact with. As working professionals we recognize good service & want to truly thank you for everything.”
Antoinette & Mike Bartlett, IL
“We would like to say that you had a confidence that made us feel at ease working with you on selling the house. We also liked that we were not going to be held to a contract. You gave us run down on all the cost associated in selling, which helped us decide how much we could spend on a new home. We have had experiences with selling our other home that were not good, but we were held to a contract. You came in and told us what you thought needed to be done to make it more appealing for potential buyers. We did most, if not all, and it worked because out home sold in only 3 days. You were always available to us when we had questions. We never had to leave a message and wait for a call back. We would definitely recommend you to anyone who wanted to sell their home.”
Marty & Kathy Huntley, IL
“I think I speak for Kelsey when I say, thank you for helping us find our dream home. You made our search really easy and painless. The list you were able to make for us made searching for homes a breeze. I think the hardest part of finding a home to buy, is doing the research and actually finding something in your perimeters, and you made that so simple. We feared that a realtor would try and be pushy or forceful, caring more about creating a sale, than listening to customer needs, but with you we never felt that way. You were always within reach when we had questions or concerns, and your negotiation skills were top notch. We got the home we wanted, for less than our lower limit of budget all because of you. And to be honest, I already have let a friend know that if he's going to be looking soon, I've got a guy, so we'll be recommending you to anyone that asks. Thanks again.”
Kyle & Kelsey Wauconda, IL
