Helped me buy home
Mike helped my husband and I buy our first home in November of 2013. We were looking for a home in South Reno and found our dream home. Mike was very attentive and answered my texts and phone calls promptly. He did an awesome job and would recommend him to my friends and family!
Response fromMichael Wood
Ana, Thanks for taking the time to review me, I very much appreciate it. You were both wonderful to work with and handled the tense situations wonderfully. I know it was all worth it, you have a great home and I'm sure you will make many happy memories in it. Thanks again. All the best, Mike

I feel that my wife and I were extremely fortunate to have Mr. Wood representing us in our real estate transaction. He has tremendous knowledge in the local market(s) and he is very attentive to his client's needs. Michael showed us several properties before committing to our purchase and he made us feel like we were his only clients. He is very professional as well as confident, and I was very pleased to receive his honest opinion at times. At the end of the day I feel as though I found a new friend, and I will be calling him for assistance with our future real estate needs. Less ... More
Response fromMichael Wood
Libor, it's always a pleasure when my clients are as well informed about the market as the two of you are. You did what you set out to do, get a great deal on a really nice home. It took a while to find the right diamond, but it was worth the wait. I very much enjoyed our time together, you should buy some investment properties so we can do it again!!! I'm sure we will see each other soon. All the best, Mike

I contacted Mike to sell a rental house we had. We were very pleased with his knowledge, guidance, and honesty throughout the sale. He assisted us every step of the way. I would highly recommend Mike for your real estate needs. Mike and Karol Courtney
Response fromMichael Wood
Thanks Karol (I know Mike didn't write it), You both were a pleasure and I appreciate the opportunity to work for you. You had a great house to sell and were realistic about value, I can't ask for more. Next time we won't have to deal with the tenant issues either. It went just as planned though and it was very enjoyable. Thanks again and if I can be of any help in the future, just let me know. All the best, Mike

Mike was referred to us by a family member when we were simply thinking of moving to Reno from out of state. Mike was more than willing to take the time necessary to show us all over the Reno area so we could make the best and most informed choice. His laid back, no pressure approach helped us make the decision easy! He truly has his clients best interest in mind and went the extra mile to ensure we were getting exactly what we wanted in a home. He was available to answer any question, any time of day. Mike is a true expert in the real estate market-- we asked him to tell us what to offer on the home we purchased and the seller/bank accepted all terms right away. He made purchasing a short sale easier than we could have ever imagined and we will refer him to everyone we know. Couldn't be happier! Less ... More

Michael was great to work with in selling our home in northwest Reno. We got an offer soon after listing. He went "above and beyond" (literally - he climbed an extension ladder to change the battery in a smoke detector!), and helped us close our deal easily. Thanks Mike!
Response fromMichael Wood
L&P, I wish I had someone with me to take a pic of me on that ladder....who puts a smoke detector there?? Thanks again for your trust in me, it's tough when you live out of the area to expect someone else to take care of all of the details. We did it together and I appreciate you guys being so responsive and proactive when we needed anything. All the best, Mike.

Michael (Mike as he became known throughout the process) came to me through a mutual friend's recommendation, and partially due to how highly he was recommended on Zillow itself. Throughout a difficult, 2 year process where I went from being 2nd home buyer, to renter, to short seller, Mike stayed with me despite ups, downs, lefts and rights. He became more than my realtor, he legitimately became a friend that I could send listings to at any hour of the day, ask questions of, bounce ideas about neighborhoods off, and just chat with if it came to it. Each and every real estate transaction I make in the future will involve Mike Wood. You will not regret every choosing him. Thanks Mike! Less ... More

My husband and I just happened to get in contact with Mike through Zillow and he was absolutely incredible in helping us find our first home to buy. He is completely genuine, dedicated and not pushy or pressuring at all! He worked his butt off in searching for the perfect home for us, and once we found the right house, he went through a lot of effort in dealing with a very difficult seller in order to make our dream house a reality. Not only do we highly recommend him for his knowledge of the Reno area, but he will do everything in his power to make sure that his clients are totally happy with their decision. Mike is a solid real estate agent and now we consider him a great friend. Less ... More

Being a military family we have moved numerous times, buying and selling houses at all our duty stations. Mike is, by far, the best realtor we've ever worked with. He is very knowledgeable of the housing market, very attentive and responsive to our many questions and requests. My husband and I highly recommend him.

Mike was able to short sale our house and deal with ALL of the hoopla that came along with it. As the banks continued to stall and make the process difficult, Mike stuck it out, followed through on everything, and was able to get us out of a know win situation free and clear.
Response fromMichael Wood
Lindsay, I need to thank you both for putting up with all of the stalls and requests from the lender.

Our home sale in Sparks Nevada was unbelievably awesome! Michael Wood listed our home (conventional home sale) on a Friday evening in mid-August, 2013 and we had 3 showings on Saturday (the following day)! The third showing resulted in an offer (full price + extra for our appliances which were sold separately.) We accepted the offer and closed escrow exactly one month from that date. Based on Michael's professionalism, expertise and honesty, We would highly recommend Michael for your Real Estate needs! Less ... More

Thank you Gayle! You guys were a pleasure to deal with. It's tough enough when you have to uproot and move across country, the last thing you need is more stress over the house.

I'm glad we had found Mike through Zillow. All the great reviews indicated in Zillow are absolutely true. We looked to Mike to sell our house in Reno NV. We had our doubts of being able to sell the house because the market early this year was not so good. Mike however was always confident. He not only sold the house, but sold it for a profit. Our house was only in the market for 1 week when we got the offer, even when other homes in the area were selling for much longer time frame. Thanks Mike. If you are looking for an agent, Mike is the guy to go to.... you won't regret it. He is very customer service oriented, prompt to reply, & goes above and beyond to keep your best interest in mind.

Response fromMichael Wood
I have to admit that your technical ability with online resources helped. It just goes to show that the public has as much access to what's on the market as the agents (almost). I think my value comes in after the property is identified actually, getting the deal done is where I have the most fun. Yours was challenging, especially with the move, but it all fell in line like it was designed to. Great agents on the other end always helps. Glad to have you guys here!!! Thanks again, Mike

My husband and I had been looking at homes in the Reno area for well over a year before we met Mike Wood. We had worked with two other Agents before we met Mike. At the time we met Mike we were ready to give up on Real Estate Agents and wing it on our own. I called on a property in Summerset and Mike responded within 10-20 minutes. With Mike we found an agent that loves what he does, is dedicated to his clients, has integrity and goes 100 plus miles above and beyond to help his clients find that perfect home. He responds to all concerns with knowledge, follow through and ALWAYS a positive attitude, no matter what time of day or night it is. Buying a home is stressful, Mike Wood listened to what we were looking for in a home and did his homework before presenting a property. We appreciated that fact that he didn't waste our time pushing homes; he is a true Real Estate Professional, and we are thankful that we had the oppertunity to work with him. Less ... More

Thank you so much Pam for the review (I'm assuming it wasn't Tim) and thanks for allowing me to be in the journey.

You guys had done your homework, so when the opportunity presented itself, your decision was quick and well supported. Your both great people and I look forward to a long friendship.

Mike is a top notch realtor, and individual. I met Mike by reading these same Zillow reviews, and have used him both as a selling agent (where he was able to secure a buyer for my home, over the value I anticipated, and within 3 days!), and as a buying agent. Mike is knowledgeable, flexible, and most of all honest. What better traits can you ask for in your realtor. I would not hesitate to recommend Mike in any portion of your real estate transaction needs.
Response fromMichael Wood
David, thank you for the kind words. Nice of you to not mention that you were homeless for a week between houses. It makes my job that much easier when my clients know where the market is and what to expect from it. Your expectations weren't out of line, there just wasn't a lot out there that met them.

Mike is the best realtor I've worked with. He was able to succeed where others came up empty. I had my home listed for a short sale with another only to be disappointed, by having to come up with $70k at closing. This was not possible for me so I contacted a true expert in this field (Mike Wood). Mike was able to have an offer to the bank within the first weekend of showings. Three months later I signed off at title with no money out of pocket. I wish I had called Mike first, he is the Best! Thank you Mike for all the work you did. Less ... More

Thank you sir. I had forgotten about the $70K thing. Just glad we were able to get it all buttoned up for you. Thanks for referring your dad also, he is a kick.

I sold my home as a short sale in 2009. Mike was professional and assisted to negotiate with the banks throughout the process. He was very knowledgable about the area and priced the home appropriately for a quick sale. Mike is very easy to work with and has a very calm, laid-back personality. He always returns calls in a timely manner and is willing to answer all questions big and small. I have since referred several friends to Mike and they have all been very happy working with him. I look forward to working with him again in the future to buy our next home. Less ... More

MB, Thanks for great review, I appreciate it. Let's be honest, you haven't referred "a few", you've referred "a ton"...and for that I am grateful. It's a cliche to say "the best compliment I can receive is a referral....", but it's really true and I am appreciative of your referral business. I'm also grateful for the referrals I receive from your referrals....good people tend to surround themselves with good people. Thanks again for the opportunity, I look forward to looking at homes with you both again soon and I will always return your calls (maybe even answer the phone???). Thanks again!! Less ... More

I was in a bind, and needed assistance making the leap from eminent foreclosure to short sale. I had many concerns, and fears. Each and every time I spoke with Mike, he was knowlegeable, provided me a helpful perspective on what was happening, and let me know that no matter what happened - he had my best interests in mind. He held my hand through setting up the short sale, including; all the disclosures and paperwork, dealing with the lender, dealing with the prospective buyers, and dealing with the title company. I received regular updates on the process, with a professional and worry-free approach. He's great at well timed jokes, in order that I could laugh a little and feel positive about the whole thing! In the end - I sold my home, satisfied all parties to the transaction, and I have a new start in a very cute rental. I am happy and relieved that I chose Mike to help me with this crucial transaction. Thanks Mike! Less ... More

Mike helped my partner and I through a very trying shortsale. The bank was difficult to work with, but Mike was always upbeat and encouraging. He worked hard to find buyers for the property and helped us with the endless paperwork. He had a great sense of humor and was always a pleasure to work with. He got back to us right away whenever there were any questions or concerns. I have recommended him to our family and friends and hope to use him again when we are ready to purchase house in the future. Less ... More

We contacted Mike Wood based on seeing reviews about him and we are so glad that we did. Mike took the time to really get to know what we were looking for. We gave him our wants, likes, dislikes and after 1 meeting with Mike, He compiled a list of homes for us to look at. He really did listen. We were ready to buy but were not in a rush. He was very patient and wanted us to be in the right home. We are now living in a beautiful home that fit all of our needs and wants! Thanks Mike!!! Gary & Sheri Less ... More

Mike was very professional through the whole process of buying a house and made buying a home easy. We searched and searched for a new home for about 9 months and he was always available to take our calls. We would call him at 8 am on a saturday and he would meet us an hour later. He would even entertain our daughter so we could explore the houses. Thank you Mike for all your help, patience and expertise!
Response fromMichael Wood
D, Anything for you and your family. Sorry it took so long and that the short sale we started with held us up. If it hadn't, the "right" house would have come on after you closed. Sometimes the "difficulties" give the opportunities time to present themselves. Your daughter is a pleasure by the way.

Mike short sold my home for me and he did an incredible job negotiating with the bank. Once he had it on the market it only took a couple of weeks to get an offer, from there Mike worked diligently with the bank to have the offer accepted. Mike always returned all of my calls and made the process easy for me. I always recommend Mike to everyone I talk too.
Response fromMichael Wood
I appreciate the review and the referrals. A friend of my friend is a friend of mine.....and I'll always return your calls! Btw, when clients are as diligent in getting me what the bank needs as you are, short sales aren't so hard to get through. You are a great example. Thanks

Short sale purchases in Reno can get tangled, even if all parties are working to close the sale. If you intend to buy a short sale in Reno, choose a Realtor to represent you, the buyer, who is willing to chase away all of the obstacles and motivate all of the agencies that must, begrudgingly, perform tasks on your behalf. Mike Wood is pleasurable to work with, and despite the challenges facing the real estate market, seems to thrive on anticipating and clearing the trail on behalf of buyers. Pick a Realtor you'd share a foxhole with ... I'd recommend Mike Wood in any red tape battle. Regards, Tar Heel on Talon Pointe Less ... More

Never responded to my inquiry

Response fromMichael Wood
Unfortunately, people like you come in to a professional venue like Zillow and try to disparage hardworking people like myself. I see by your account that you joined on Christmas eve...so about 10 days ago?? I've gone through each inquiry for the last 12 months your email is nowhere to be found. I don't know who you are or what your motivation is, but it won't work. Fraudulent reviews, and those who write them, will always be dismissed by those with higher intelligence. In other words, my clients (past, present and future) are smarter than that. Feel free to call me direct should you wish to discuss this at length. Less ... More

MIKE WAS WONDERFUL!! After going through 3 other realtors who seemed more concerned about lining their pockets and throwing me into any home that was available, I finally found Mike! Mike listened to exactly what I wanted in a home and went above and beyond my expectations to find me a home that I never dreamed would be in my price range. Mike was courteous, knowledgeable and professional throughout the entire process and most of all his integrity surpassed anyone I have ever worked with in the past, he fought to make sure I got the best deal and wasn?t taken advantage of. I can?t say thank you enough and how much I appreciate everything Mike have done for us, I have already recommended Mike to everyone I come in contact with because I know he will take care of them with the same level of phenomenal service I received. I have nothing but extraordinary things to say. THANK YOU, MIKE. Less ... More

Mike was always available to answer questions and for house showings. He helped us with a short sale and also a purchase of a new home. He was knowledgeable and helpful in both of these processes. I would recommend Mike to anyone needing help finding or selling a home.
Response fromMichael Wood
Carrie, Thanks for the kind words. I had a wonderful time with the 2 (now 3) of you through everything. You made the short sale process easy with your promptness and understanding. Maybe you could put on a class for other sellers on how to make the process go quickly. I wish you many years of happiness in the new home and an invitation to a bbq or two. Thanks, Mike

An exceptional REALTOR like Mike Wood makes all the difference when it comes to selling your home. We did a short-sale on our home and the process was long and very stressful. From beginning to end, Mike was amazing! He was very respectful, had tremendous follow through and did not hesitate answering even the most difficult questions. Without him, I don't think we could have made it through the process successfully... but we did! Thank you Mike, for everything... We adore you!

I live out of the area so I began looking for a home in the Reno area I was not sure where to start. I reached out to several agents in the area based on recommendations and their web sites but after 3 days of no return calls I decided to go back to the Zillow web site and call the first agent who was listed, it happened to be Mike. He actually picked up the phone and the the rest is history. Mike accommodated my schedule, listened to what I wanted, understood my needs and found me the home of my dreams. He was honest and cared about my decision. He continues to support me with issues I am having with the builder and has recommended people in the area he trusts to help me finish my home. Thank you Mike! Less ... More

I have been working with Mike for almost a year watching and waiting for the right house to come on the market (he watched while I waited). We had seen several homes and some multiple times. Finally the right home did make it on the market and Mike was fantastic in helping me with the purchase...he made it happen!! Mike is Marvelous! He truely was looking out for ME!

P, The lesson learned is "dead landscaping does not a foreclosure make". Thank you for the wonderful review and the solar charger and the referrals and the laughs. It was a wonderful, long, sometimes challenging transaction, but at the end of the day everyone got what they wanted. Sometimes you just have to wait for the opportunity to knock. You are a wonderful person and client and I appreciate being your REALTOR.
