You never know who is going to respond to an email...I didn't fully appreciate how fortunate I was when Mic responded...but I certainly did as the process moved along. Mic picked some great properties, offered flexible meeting times, and communication was excellent. Mic is a down to earth guy, not pretentious in the slightest, and somebody I would READILY work with in the future.

Mic is true professional. His calm demeanor and level headed approach to selling our home took what could have been a stressful situation and made it a painless and enjoyable one. He was always quick to pick up the phone when we called and offer advice however he always let us make the decision. He was able to get us multiple offers and counsel us on how to get the most out of it.

Mic was incredibly helpful with the whole process, and he did a good job of staying in contact with me even though the process of finding my new home and closing took months. I would really recommend him as a Realtor for finding a home in LODO or Highlands, he is very knowledgeable about the area.

Mic helped us buy a condo on LoDo in a high rise. He knew the area well and could advise us on the hot areas of Denver to buy, and why this purchase would be a strong one going forward. He has an easy, low-key manner and is prompt in his response time.

Mic really knows the Highlands/ Sloan?s Lake neighborhood of Denver. He had great advice before during and after the sale of my home. He works in a great part of town and sold my home in one day. I?d say those are great results!

Mic helped my wife and I find the perfect home in Denver. We were moving into the area from out of state, and had little to no knowledge of the area, or housing market. Mic spent several afternoons with us taking us around to different neighborhoods that fit our price range and needs. He was never pushy, and kind of let us 'do our own thing' as we looked around. If we had any questions, he was very good about answering them, or getting back to us quickly with a response. He was exceptionally good at communicating with us, as we were still out of state while going through the purchase of our new home. He has a very calm demeanor, and helped put our mind at ease when unexpected things arose during the process. We would recommend Mic very highly to any of our friends! Less ... More

When I decided to sell my home, I knew I would ask Mic if he would like to help me. Mic knows the area extremely well and has a good handle on the current housing market. We listed my house and I got an offer the next day. Mic was always available for questions via e-mail or phone and was really clear when explaining all the steps. He was there for me every step of the selling process, providing advice and comfort for those anxious moments. He even provided references for contractors I needed to get my house ready to sell. I was really pleased with the whole experience. Mic made it simple. He is very personable and professional. I would definitely recommend working with Mic! Less ... More

Mic was a great realtor for us. He was extremely responsive, always willing to meet me to check out a property within a few hours after emailing him. He allowed us to make our own decisions and opinions, but interjected his expertise when he noticed something concerning. He continues to send me emails about helpful for our first homeownership and consistently checks in on us to see if we have questions or concerns.

Mic is awesome! Worked hard for us day and night, and his advice was spot on every step of the way. He never let us waiting for answers, and fought hard to get us the price and contract structure we wanted. We've been in our new home for 3weeks now and couldn't be happier. He's continued to help us with recomendations for contractors as well as connecting us with other great home owner resources. I honestly couldn't ask for anything more from him. Our experience with Mic has been fantastic, and we would recommend him to anyone! Less ... More

I contacted Mic with a unique buying situation and he was flexible in working with me to figure out our arrangement and took care of everything with regard to the sellers. When that house fell through, Mic stuck with us and helped us to find the perfect home for us. We are now in that home and as happy as could be. He also provided us with valuable advice that helped us rent our old home, quickly and for a great price. Mic was professional, responsive and always willing to answer questions. He was much easier to deal with then my past real estate agents and appreciated that he did not try to force anything on us. We would use Mic again in a heartbeat. Less ... More

My fiance and I were looking to purchase our first home. Mic was recommended by a friend and I am extremely happy we worked with him. We did not know exactly what we were looking for in our first house. Mic was patient, he would point out anything that needed work and made sure we were aware of any re-sale issues that we would have never thought about. After looking at 20+ homes we decided to place a bid on a house and he had documents ready for us to sign in under an hour. It was a great experience and we are recommending him to anyone that will listen. Less ... More

My wife and I had tried out many realtors before finding Mic. You could say that we are a bit selective and only settle for the best. Mic was very interested in finding out exactly what we were looking for and was ever vigilant and and the lookout for houses that matched our criteria. He patiently visited many houses with us until we found the perfect one and gave us his honest and valuable advice. If I ever decide to move I will definitely use him again and I will and have recommended him to friends. Less ... More

Mic is a great realtor and my wife and I will definitely recommend him to anyone we know house hunting in the Denver and surrounding areas. Mic listened to our wants and needs to help us find not only the perfect home, but the perfect neighborhood too. We are 100% satisfied with our experience with Mic. He was extremely attentive and always responsive when we had questions or wanted to see different homes. He is an extremely hard worker and will do anything it takes to make sure his clients are happy. We bought from him almost 6 years ago and are still friends and will continue to be for a long time. -Cori and Claire Less ... More

Mic is very knowledgeable about the Denver area and how to get your house sold! We were needing to move our house quickly, so Mic took the time to get everything right and the house was under contract after the first day on the market. Mic was very prompt and diligent throughout the process in working out all the kinks in getting a house to closing. Mic also did a great job finding the perfect home for us to buy. He really listens to your wants and needs and shows you what you like, not just what he would like you to be in. Mic pays attention to what you like in a property and finds you just what you want. I highly recommend Mic if your looking to buy or sell. He really works for you to get just what your in need of. Less ... More

I've been a Mortgage Banker in the Denver area for over 13 years, but have had the privelege of working with Mic many times over the last 6 years, as a lender for his clients. He has always struck me as a great student of the industry. Whether his clients are listing their home for sale or purchasing a new home...Mic understands the market and provides them the education and insights necessary to insure they are making solid decisions. His business philosophies and focus on customer service are a welcome benefit for those he serves. Mic's professional demeanor and integrity insures a positive experience for each and every client transaction. Less ... More

We worked with Mic Ortega for a recent condo purchase. He negotiated our price point well below the asking price, was great with guidance during our decision-process and walk-through, and could put difficult wording in our contract into language we could understand. As first time home buyers, this was a huge weight lifted off our shoulders. I think the quality of service was best represented when we had a dispute with the building at signing. Mic said he would talk to them about a price issue we uncovered, but recommended that we also contact the building. The representative at the building, unknowingly to Mic, forwarded us Mic's email about the situation and then her response to him. Even though he didn't know we'd be seeing his email, it was spot on and represented how we were feeling perfectly. Pretty impressive. Less ... More

I highly recommend Mic as the go to real estate professional for the downtown Denver area. As a first time home buyer, I inundated Mic with endless questions about every detail of the home purchasing process, and he always responded promptly and effectively. I was most impressed by his knowledge of the local market, his prompt correspondence and his flexibility. As far as flexibility, several times when my schedule was incredibly hectic, he would arrange walkthroughs later in the evening; which made me feel as if I was his number one priority. As for his knowledge of the market, he impressed me with his familiarity with even the minute details of future city plans. His knowledge and experience helped me weigh options ranging from amenities to HOAs to zoning issues that could affect my purchase. Over the course of 2-3 months, he showed me 15-20 different condos; and while each building had its own nuances, Mic?s knowledge and experience in downtown Denver helped guide me to the perfect condo in the perfect location at my price point. As for his prompt correspondence, since I am typically busy at my job, I prefer email correspondence rather than phone, so that I can send and receive the messages on my personal time. Mic was very accommodating with my request, and he would respond to my emails promptly, often times later in the evening! Again, this made me feel as if I was his number one priority. One final comment about Mic has to do with his personality. Probably the thing I enjoyed most about working with Mic was that he was laid back. As you can glean from the description above, he was laid back, but at the same time, very attentive to my needs, proactive and helpful throughout my search. His laid back approach really put me at ease during the whole process, and I never felt rushed or pushed into anything I wasn?t ready for. I plan on recommending Mic to all of my friends who are looking for property in the Denver metro area. Less ... More

Mic Ortega was a joy to work with. Buying from another state was made painless as Mic had a real breadth of knowledge about the entire Denver area. His response to emails and phone calls was unbeleivably fast. He negotiated our very first offer, and made it happen. No dickering. We would highly reccomend him to all our family and friends.

Mic Ortega helped me find a small condo for my son. Our budget was small but you would never have known that from the attention, patience, creativity and plain old help we got from him. I have and will recommend him to anyone! We could not have closed this deal with out his establishing a good rapport with everyone involved. And I was working from out of state! He is great!

Mic Ortega, was second to NONE, for Denver and the surrounding area. He showed honesty, integrity, humility, humor, grace and perseverence in his work as our realtor. I sincerely doubt a better real estate agent exists in the entire city. Seriously. Easy to work with, prompt to return phone calls/emails, exremely hard working and professional, trust Mic with the task of selling your home. Period.

Mic Ortega was extremely helpful and flexable with our needs when purchasing our first home. We had a strict deadline we were aiming for to make a decision and our experience with our previous agent left us stranded and bitter. But, Mic was right there to quickly help us pick up the pieces and find exactally what we were looking for. He answered all of our questions and helped keep things in perspective, even when we had our "freak out" moments as first-time home buyers. Overall, Mic is an excellent and knowledgable agent and in general, a very pleasant person to work with. He is willing to go above and beyond and has even continued to stay in contact and send helpful information after our purchase. Less ... More

My husband and I have worked with Mic Ortega for 5 years now. We?ve sold a home, bought a home and (often) consider our next real estate move/transaction. Mic is always there to answer our questions, offer potential properties, show us homes, and explain and discuss our various options ? this has been especially helpful as we consider renting our current home when we purchase our next. Whenever we have questions about financing, zoning, the status of a house on the market, etc. ? we can count on Mic to not only respond in a timely manner, but he goes well above and beyond by researching options, providing resources and recommending other professionals that could assist us in making the best buying decision for us and our lifestyle! Thank you Mic! Less ... More

Mic was a perfect fit for me. He is very laid back and didnt pressure me at all. He had detailed knowledge of the denver market and always made me feel like a priority. He has a stong network of business associates that assisted him and me throughout the process. For example: Mic set me up with a mortgage broker that got me the lowest rate possible and Mic used his network to gather information on the seller, builder, and developer of my property. My purchase was not an easy process and involved a lot of back and forth between Mic and the seller. However, Mic persisted through it with my best interests in mind. I love the home im in and wouldnt change a thing about how mic helped me. Less ... More

I have recommended Mic to family and friends in the past also. Mic is not a high pressure salesman, but gives you the facts that you need to make the right decisions for yourself.
