Michael has sold two of our homes and we wouldn't use anyone else! He far exceeded our expectations by going above and beyond to get the price we wanted. The entire Michael Kaim team showed great professionalism by making the entire selling and closing process easier on us.

It was a very easy experience, much less stressful then I had imagined. Our realtor was great and gave us good advice. He helped us find a broker who was amazing. It was a very good experience and we wouldn't hesitate to use them in the future.

Michael was a pleasure to work with. From the moment I contacted him, Michael was very responsive and helpful. Michael met with me to do a home appraisal and provided me a dollar figure and time frame I could count on to sell my house. Michael and his team kept close contact throughout the process and was always available to answer any questions. In the end, I achieved the dollar figure desired and sold the house in the specified time frame.

I attempted to contact on several occasions. Even prior to the drop in price of a home I was interested in seeing . The priced dropped , I feverishly attempted to contact and the next day under contract. Never responded , but I receive garbage e-mail from them constantly. Definitely would not recommend!

Michael Kaim and his team do an excellent job in all aspects of helping to purchase or sell your home. I have had multiple homes that they have assisted me with and the process was seamless each time. The most recent sale was of one of our rental properties which they were able to see within 10 days of us listing it on the market. It's great having so many people helping to get things done. It seamed like there was at least 5 members of Michael's team that were dedidcated to helping us get things done as efficiently and effective as possible. Everyone was very knowledegeable and their response time was great each time we had a question. I would highly recommend the Michael Kaim Team in your next home transaction. Less ... More

Michael and his team did an outstanding job in marketing and ultimately selling a home which other realtors were unable to sell. The extensive marketing effort on the internet was the key to getting the house the attention needed to make it stand out from the competition.

Michael and his team was OUTSTANDING! They have sold two houses for us in the past 10 years and would recommend them over and over again! They sold our last home in less than 30 days. The response to any question were immediate and always honest and on target. They are professional but understand its personal. The expertise is unmatched!

We were very impressed with Michael Kaim and his team. He was highly knowledgeable of the local market and able to set accurate expectiations with regards to activity and price range for our house. Several issues arose during the close process and Michael and his team were able to answer questions and provide guidance throughout the process. I recommend Michael Kaim to anyone seeking to sell a home.

Our Real Estate Agent, Diane Koury, went the extra mile and then some. We dragged her through every house on the market and she stuck with us until we found just the right one. I would strongly recommend her to my family and friends, and in fact have !!!!

We?ve purchased and sold several homes during the past 12 years, and have interviewed and worked with many Realtors. Of these, we firmly believe that the services provided by Carolyn Holtzhauser were phenomenal and beyond comparison. During our first email contacts, Carolyn queried our tastes in home style, community preferences, work locations, and our projected price range. She next developed a portfolio of homes that were perfectly suited to our tastes and budget. Since we were relocating from a different state, Carolyn arranged a series of viewings to permit us to tour almost 40 homes over a very limited number of days! During those viewings, she was simultaneously handling viewings/listings/closings for multiple clients. Yet, she treated us as if we were her one and only clients. In addition, Carolyn maintained the utmost professionalism, respect for properties we were viewing, never rushed us, as was exceptionally courteous to all homeowners and agents that we interacted with. We were also very impressed with Carolyn's in-depth knowledge of many cities and counties we visited. It was that level of personalized treatment and extensive knowledge that will bring us back to the Michael Kaim team when we outgrow the home we?ve just purchased and need to buy another. Thanks to Carolyn and her colleagues, we?ve found the perfect home for our family. Our sincerest thanks, Dr?s Michael and Debbie. Less ... More

We had a great experience with Michael and his team. They were very professional, freindly and responsive and make the experience very easy for us. In addition, in a 6 month period of time, they brought 10x more people through than we had in all of the prior 12 months with 2 different realtor agencies. I'd highly recommend them!

We worked with Missy Nord to buy our first house in Chardon, Ohio and had a fabulous experience. She was very patient and answered all of our questions. Missy responded right away and was very knowledgeable about the area and market. She was flexible with appointments and when we could meet for showings, inspections, signings, etc. We couldn't have asked for a better experience and highly recommend the Kaim team. They were with us every step of the way to make it a seamless experience.

...although we were very happy with the Michael Kaim team, we would not choose the auction option again. Our realtor, Brenda Niemi was very good. We do not feel that we benefitted in any way from the auction portion and it was an additional expensive commission-yes the lower price brought more people in to view the property, but then they expected a low price and we were sort of stuck... Also, the people that came could not afford to pay what we actually were looking for price wise. We believe the auction was an expensive mistake on our part :( ... But Brenda and the Michael Kaim team were very good. Less ... More

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
I have been waiting for a "call back" for over two weeks from a member of this team. I was blown off to see a home because the member had something come up. The next time I heard back from this member she said it was out of her way to show me the home because I had not chosen to get a pre-approval. It should never be an issue to show a prospective buyer a home if there is not a bank approval on the table.

Listed home, but didn't sell
Very bad experience with Michael Kaim Team. He was aggressive in trying to encourage us to purchase a more expensive house and equally aggressive in insisting we repeatedly lower the price on our house. He assigned one of his team members to come to show our house, but the guy was very late in showing-up and the prospective buyers walked away. His "team" did such a poor job, we had to fire them. Don't be fooled by his "glam" shot!

Buyers agent from Michael Kaim had shown me homes one day the past summer. Asked me to get pre-qualified before asking to show more homes. I decided to continue to rent since I did not see anything I liked. Finally found a property I wanted to see. I look on Zillow every day. Requested a showing through Michael Kaim on Zillow. This time I am pre-approved for a loan. Same agent contacted me. Since I wasn't ready to purchase in the next few months, buyers agent from Michael Kaim Realty refused to show me home. Referred me to sellers agent. Sellers agent was more than happy to show me the property. Did not ask for pre-approval and also is showing me other homes in neighborhood. I recommend going directly to the selling agent. Less ... More
Response fromMichael Kaim
Dear User3549031, I am very sorry that you were not satisfied with the service you received from one of my business partners. I want to assure you that we are very client-focused. Our company motto has always been "Customer Excellence". And, I think our track record shows this to be true?of the 350+ homes we will sell this year, 159 were for Past Clients or Personal Referrals. Regarding the two points mentioned in your review... 1) Pre-approval: I too believe it is in all parties best interest, buyer and seller, for a buyer to be pre-approved. 2) Referral to a listing agent: We will refer a client to a listing agent IF we are unable to properly service that client?we do not yet specialize in all areas and/or price ranges throughout the State of Ohio. I realize that it is too late to make this a better experience for you. And, again, I personally apologize for us being unable to service your needs. Good Luck with Your Home Search!

Had a poor interaction with the Kaim Team. When selling a home, the team will work hard to get you to sign with them... Then you will get automated letters in the mail telling you to drop the price. They basically just kick these off to you at certain time periods, you don't get a call and explanation of why to drop the price from your team member. Then when you get an offer on the home, the team steps back in to try and tell you to accept the offer, even if it is extremely low. On the buying side, the role of the team should be communication. I had a poor experience here, as well. Their idea of being a buyers agent is sending you automated listings, opening the door for you to look at houses, try to convince you it's right for you, and then try and get you to accept any offer the buyer has. I saved over $10k by not accepting offers that they told me I should. Less ... More

We were moved here 5yrs ago and the company set us up with your team. We were very satisfied with how welll they acted in our behalf, when it came to retire this year we had no reservations in calling the team back to handle our sale. Both Michael Kaim and Mike fergus went the extra mile to see we got the best offer for our home and the sale went off with little stress. I highly recommend your company to anyone with confidence they will receaive the same attention and care we found here. Sincerely Cheryl & Dan Less ... More

Michael and his team did an excellent job taking care of my needs during this sale. I was an out of state seller and they were very helpful and available for any appointments that were needed at the property. His team was very professional and handled all of the transactions smoothly.

We used Michael Kaim to sell one of our houses in Painesville on Liberty street and he was great. He did everything he promised and more. I would recommend this Realtor if you want your house sold quickly and negotiated to the price you desire. Plus the people he has working in his office were knowledgeable and super friendly. We are using him once again to sell another one of our properties since we were so pleased!

Michael and his team negotiated an incredible deal for us to stay in the home we were selling while our other home we purchased closed through short sale. He was able to sell our home quickly and professionally. He advised us well through both the selling and buying process. He and the Kaim team's connections help make us feel comfortable with the process. Tina was awesome to work with and went out of her way to keep us informed.
