A professional and capable buyer's agent with a strong reputation in the Asheville area. He's a capable negotiator, and handled our contract with authority. He's very active as an agent, but made time for house visits each time we were in the area. We were happy to work with him and the Mosaic team.

In my experience of having bought or sold 5 homes, Mike Figura is the best agent I have ever worked with. He has impressive local knowledge of the Asheville market and is a true expert on Green homes. He has a high sense of urgency and is extremely responsive and available at all times of day and night. He is NOT pushy as some agents can be. I trust him whole-heartedly and would highly recommend him and use him again in the future.

Mike is the consummate professional. He knows his business , he knows the Asheville market, and he is attentive to the desires of his clients. Was especially impressed with his patience and words of wisdom as all family members voiced differing opinions on what we thought we wanted. Bottom line, came out with the right place at the right price and everyone is happy! Thanks Mike

We can't say enough about Mike Figura. Purchasing our home, with Mike as our agent, was the most positive experience we've ever had with a realtor. We immediately felt his honesty and professionalism. Mike is truly invested in the community and it showed as he helped us navigate the tricky Asheville real estate market. He does his research and asks good questions. We recently closed on a wonderful home and couldn't be happier. We highly recommend Mike to anyone buying or selling. Thank you Mike! Less ... More

Straight shooter, transparent, knowledgeable, data driven, intuitional. Mike is very professional and pragmatic. He takes his responsibilities as an agent to his clients seriously. He's not afraid to tell help clients with information and analyses, even if that means the client deciding to take a pass on a property, because he's not in the business for just a quick transaction - he's building his business and reputation.

Mike is the best broker you will ever work with. I am a real estate investor who has worked with Mike to purchase three properties in Asheville. I have worked in the Real Estate business for 15 years in the US and Asia. I can say that Mike is the best real estate broker I have ever dealt with in my career. He is honest, professional, friendly, enthusiastic and patient. What is very important is that he shoots straight. He will tell you if a property is not suitable or if the price is too high. On the other hand, he'll tell you if you need to move quickly to get a property he thinks is great. He is not simply looking to make a commission but truly wants to find the right property for you. Mike goes above and beyond in order to deliver you two important things: 1. He finds the right property for your needs and 2. He gets the deal done. In my case, I came to Asheville, like many people, without knowing a lot about the market. Mike listened to me and then steered me in the right direction to get me a great property despite my not understanding the market that well. In addition, he worked to get us a good deal and to get the deal done. Mike is someone you can really trust. In addition, as an investor, I needed help finding service providers for home repairs, etc. Mike not only found us great people but helped me to hire them and describe the work that needed to get done. And he continues to follow up with us to make sure everything is going well. I continue to work with Mike as we expand our business in Asheville and am sure we will maintain a long and fruitful relationship. He continue to work very hard for us as we look for additional investments. I highly recommend that you contact Mike if you are looking for a broker in Asheville. He is fantastic! Less ... More

We began searching for a home in Asheville a year before we finally found one that fit our needs. Though we had an initial showing with a different agent, we decided , based on previous reviewers comments, to contact Mike Figura to show us around town. As avid Amazon shoppers and Trip Advisor groupies, we believe strongly in the power of consumer reviews. We also understand that everyone has his/her opinion and can express it in a subjective or objective way. We try to exercise caution when purchasing a product or trying a hotel or restaurant based solely on positive or negative reviews, but as you will note, Mike?s reviews are consistently positive and strong. Being from out of state, this increased our confidence in Mike?s abilities and also gave us a pretty comprehensive overview of his work ethic and demeanor. From the first phone call, Mike was friendly, professional and enthusiastic to help us find the perfect house to call home. He took the time to share a meal with us to better understand who we are and what matters to us, not just in a home, but in life. We began seeing homes together in January 2013. When Mike had a conflict, he enlisted the help of his real estate team to accommodate our schedule, as we were only able to view homes on weekends in the beginning. We quickly learned that the market in Asheville is robust and fast-paced. (Potential out-of-state buyers, please note . . . if you find a house that you like, don?t think twice. Make an offer . . . your highest and best!) Mike kept us in the loop on new listings via his on-line portal and sent us updates as new, suitable properties popped up in the MLS. On numerous occasions, we called him up on short notice to schedule a listing for the next, or even same, day. He was always available to help us and very prompt in responding to calls, emails and text messages. After a year and at least a few dozen viewings, we finally closed on a home. Mike?s professional advice and patience were consistent throughout our search. Not only did we find the perfect property for our needs, we also found a new friend in Mike. Less ... More

If you're looking for a serious agent who will shoot you straight and not blow smoke up your @$$, Mike's the guy. We looked at a lot of houses, and a few he immediately said "you don't want this one." I really appreciated that - I never felt rushed, and it took us a while to find the right property. I never once felt like he was pushing for something that wasn't a good fit just to get his commission. When we did find a great spot, he acted quickly and got me under contract. He navigated me through what proved to be a labyrinthine closing process due to a variance and a subdivision. He answered my dumb texts at 10pm during the closing week and got everything organized. Young, savvy, honest, and in tune with other realtors and service providers. Couldn't have asked for better. Thanks, Mike! Less ... More

Mike was a helpful advocate throughout the process of buying a home. He is invested in our local community, as well as very informed about what is going on here. He's easy to work with, flexible, and readily available to answer questions and talk through what can sometimes be a stressful process. He also knows about some listings before they ever get posted. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a house!

I have been buying and selling properties for over 40 years. I have had the good fortune to have had more positive experience than not. Our recent purchase was of our retirement home - the home we will spend the rest of our lives enjoying. We planned everything just as we had before and were in for an interesting surprise: our lender was holding up our proceeds for closing. Based on their promise, three trucks and a large trailer were loaded at our previous home and we all headed to our new home in Asheville, NC. Upon arriving, we learned that we had to change our closing date, then we were told that we might have to put all our belongings in storage while we waited to close, or worse, had to start all over again with a new home search and lender processing. Mike was on vacation, our sellers were on vacation and we were in a hotel attempting to figure out how everything was going to shake out. Mike took time away from his family's vacation to coordinate with our seller's agent, their closing attorney and he also gave us important plan "B" information. Mike had also helped with all our due-diligence items before our arrival. Without Mike's help this would have been an impossible move. He and his firm went well beyond the call of duty. We owe him a deep debt of gratitude. I have already recommended him to dear friends who will also be moving to the area. I highly recommend his abilities and his teams outstanding coordination.

My husband and I relocated to Asheville and bought our dream home with our realtor Mike guiding us every step of the way. We knew nothing about the area or the market and had only a vague sense of what we wanted. Mike ?got us? right away and patiently worked with us until we found the perfect home. We ended up with a home we love, in the perfect neighborhood, and for the right price. He negotiated our deal like a pro with professionalism and great skill. Mike was truly the dream agent for us: knowledgeable, patient, intuitive, skillful and in high integrity. He worked expertly with the seller to keep the deal in place when the loan was delayed, going above and beyond the call of duty. We will definitely highly recommend him and will use him for all our realtor needs in the future. Thank you, Mike! You are the best!!! Less ... More

You cannot surpass Mike Figura in terms of state-of-the-art tools to monitor, evaluate, and act upon the best values in Asheville real estate. In a hot market, you had better be equipped to move decisively and confidently. Mike makes that possible because he has helped you properly analyze what can be a confusing array of listings. In a nutshell, he has prepared you to seize the moment. He also has college training in environmentally smart construction techniques, and he understands building materials so that you will not dive into a Money Pit. We had been looking to buy for two months, looking from the Grove Park and Lakeview neighborhoods to South Asheville. When the house that best met our needs appeared in the multiple listings one day at 12:33 p.m., Mike had us inside the house by 2 p.m., had a contract in the hands of the seller by 4 p.m., and had the deal confirmed the next morning. When we returned to the house at 5 p.m. the day the contract was accepted, three realtors and their clients were hovering in the street. Too bad, too late. Mike Figura beat you to the deal. There are some Baby Boomers who cannot fathom a young-looking Mike Figura having the savvy and experience to represent a buyer or seller in a substantial real estate deal. Have you ever checked Mozart?s age when he began writing symphonies and operas? Do you think Bill Gates was ?too young? to create Microsoft? Did you know Mark Zuckerberg had his first million users of Facebook by age 20? Not saying that Mike Figura is Mozart, just pointing out that youthfulness does not necessarily restrict expertise. There are some realtors who can brag of 20 years experience that, unfortunately for them, equates to one year?s experience 20 times. So we have snagged our nearly ideal house in the ideal neighborhood at a better than ideal price. But before we could make a great decision on a new home, we made a great decision on selecting Mike Figura. Bob and Pam Kearney South Asheville Less ... More

Mike Figura is an absolutely wonderful realtor. I would recommend him to anyone. Here are the main reasons why I rated him so highly: 1. He sells houses fast. My house was sold within less than two months of being on the market. A house in my neighborhood that is almost identical to mine and roughly the same cost has been on the market over 2 years now. 2. He knows how to stage a home and will help you do it. 3. He brought in a professional photographer and videographer that was able to accentuate the good aspects of the home while minimizing the lesser desired features (such as it's smaller size). The photographer even came multiple times to get the house at its very best sunlight. 4. He marketed the house according the latest research on what sells homes (for example strong internet marketing and a realtor open house). 5. He explained each step of the process clearly and thoroughly. 6. He is exceedingly easy to work with. Less ... More

Many testimonials are written about Mike Figura?s wonderful abilities as a realtor. My experience as a buyer is that he had deep patience with me as I dabbled, looking for a home for more than a year. Then when I decided it was the right time to buy, he provided effective guidance resulting in a purchase agreement within days and closing within weeks. If it weren?t for Mike, I probably would still be wondering about buying. I feel that Mike was respected by all involved--the seller?s realtor, the seller, the banker, the home inspector, the attorney--attesting to his knowledge, integrity and ability to communicate. I know Mike put full effort into making sure I got into the house I wanted, all the while making it very easy for me. I highly recommend Mike as a trustworthy, effective, intelligent realtor.

When we were contemplating a move to Asheville, we read the online reviews and comments concerning real estate agents that had been posted by other buyers and sellers of real estate. The comments about Mike Figura were uniformly positive. We then reviewed Mike's description of his background, and we were impressed by his obvious commitment to the environment, both in his undergraduate education and in his career since graduation. We asked Mike to be our buyer's agent, and we could not be more pleased with him, both as a person and as a highly competent professional. After reviewing numerous online listings of homes for sale in and around Asheville, we sent Mike our "A-list." He prepared a very efficient itinerary of home visits, and we were able to see all of the houses on that list in the course of a day. Mike's insights into the qualities and drawbacks of the various properties were extremely helpful, as was his understanding of the home buying process. Further, because he's quite knowledgeable about home construction and materials, Mike can provide information that other agents (without such in-depth knowledge) can't offer. We focused on a specific house and arranged for a follow-up visit. By that time we were extremely interested in purchasing our number one choice. When we had a follow-up question about an aspect of the house, Mike immediately called the owner, and he learned that two other couples were also quite interested in the house, and that an offer was expected from at least one of those couples. Mike worked with us to structure an offer that ultimately resulted in us purchasing a home. Throughout this process, Mike has been extraordinarily responsive and helpful. He returned calls and texts in record time, and the fact that he stayed on top of the process was, we believe, the reason we were the successful bidders. We would not hesitate to recommend Mike Figura as a buyer's agent, and we are certain he would perform equally well as a seller's agent. Less ... More

5 out of 5 for Mike Figura and his Mosaic Realty. We have moved all over the US, dealing with many realtors, and Mike is the best. He thoroughly researched the market, took great pains to understand all the green features of our house, gave us good advice on how best to highlight them, and invested considerable time and resources to develop excellent marketing materials, including pictures and videos. Last but not least,Mike is a great guy, a good communicator and has the highest integrity.

As an out of state buyer with significant real estate experience I required an objective professional to assist me in identifying a house that met my personal and investment criteria. Mike Figura exceeded my expectations for every step of the process. After providing me with an overview of the Asheville market and its neighborhoods, we we able to narrow my search to West Asheville as the most appropriate location for my goals. He selected the houses for us to see that represented my criteria in order to make the process as efficient as possible. His professional approach to identifying the pros and cons of each house and location helped me to narrow it down to the house I selected for purchase. As a result of his thorough research and analysis I trusted his judgement and advice. Based upon that analysis of the recent sales comps I became comfortable with the valuation and made an offer, which was accepted by the seller. He was there for every step of the process until and at the closing. I strongly recommend Mike Figura to anyone looking into the Asheville market. Less ... More

A relative passed away and her house was located 600 miles from the rest of the family in Illinois. Mike provided some preliminary information regarding the properties in the area and some "ball park" numbers for the us to work with. The attorney handling the estate took over the selling process and chose an agent in his office. However, Mike was right on the money with listing/selling price information and neighborhood facts.

Mike earned 5 stars all around! Our house was in great condition so he recommended not to worry about touch up painting or other minor maintenance but focus on staging and decluttering. I think this was excellent advice and made our house show great, according to the other agents. His photographer took great looking photos which made all the difference in making our listing stand out online and attract potential buyers. We had four offers on the first day of showings and Mike ended up negotiating a higher than asking sales price. I don't think we would've gotten more or sold as quickly with a higher asking price either. This was the smoothest house sale I can imagine thanks to his knowledge of the process and negotiating skills.

I highly recommend Mike! He took over a listing that had been on the market through another realtor for over 2 years and negotiated a contract in months. The property was in a tough location that required some creativity and extra effort. Mike found a special financing program for which the subject property qualified. Using this program Mike was able to secure a contract in a short time. Mike is not a realtor that gets a listing and sits back and waits for another realtor to sell the property. Even in a difficult location Mike found a good marketing tool which he used to close a win/win deal. Job well done Mike! Thanks! Less ... More

We just purchased our home in Asheville, NC and Mike patiently walked through each step with us. Mike Figura was an absolute joy to work with as our buyer's agent. From the beginning, Mike helped us to narrow down housing lists according to our needs and desired locations, he helped us to work with lenders, and walked us through to the closing. We had looked at houses with other agents in the last few years, and never felt cared for --- but Mike was the exact opposite! I cannot express enough how much Mike helped to make our home search and purchase a low stress, fun and creative experience. We felt entirely comfortable working with Mike and he was extremely open and honest with us. His knowledge of building codes, the local housing market and market trends really made us feel safe and secure.

We recently purchased our first home in West Asheville. When we first started the home buying process we were scattered to say the least. After a couple of internet searches, it was clear we needed help. We scoured the internet for agents, reading reviews and checking out websites. It didn?t take long for Mike Figura to rise to the top of our list. His reviews were phenomenal, website thorough and he answered the phone the first time we called. Mike made what could have been a stressful and confusing experience fun and simple. He was completely honest with us; we never felt he was just after a sale.

I can't recommend Mike highly enough. I've bought a number of homes over my years and though most of my realtors have been nice, and many have worked with me on my terms, Mike went above and beyond to really listen to us, get to know us and help us find an amazing house that we LOVE! He even handled a situation where my husband and I didn't quite see eye-to-eye on what we were looking for with ease. He talked to us both, listened and gave us excellent advice about what he thought would work best for us and satisfy both our goals...and he was right...we couldn't be happier. We ended up building a house and he worked with us and our builder (which he helped us find) to ensure that the house had all the elements we were looking for and at a fair price.

Helped me buy home
Mike was a fantastic realtor from start to finish. The fact that he has a lot of knowledge and experience with construction and green building was a big plus. We had a very hard to find set of criteria and Mike was extremely helpful in focusing our search, and then - Eureka! - after we found what we wanted he helped us do expert due-diligence, and he negotiated a great purchase price, and advised us on our extensive renovation plans.

Listed and sold a home
I HIGHLY recommend working with Mike. After some not-so-great experiences with realtors, we tried to sell our house ourselves for several months, and I finally realized the benefits of having an agent.

He's very professional, he knows green building, and he knows how to negotiate on your behalf. I planning on working with him in the future, and I'd recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor in our area. You couldn't do any better. Less ... More
