Listed home, but didn't sell
Mike listed or home and is helping us search for another residence in our cities of choice. We are still early in the process but Mike has shown an abundance of expertise in the the current and likely future market conditions along with a detailed marketing plan. He has a lot of knowledge about the history of market areas and properties along with how to effectively utilize that knowledge to assist us to accomplish our goals. I would highly recommend.

Helped me buy home
It is an absolute pleasure working with Michael Smith. As a first-time homebuyer, I was pretty nervous and "in the dark" about the whole process. Michael made me much more comfortable within the first 20 minutes at the first property I looked at. He is very thorough and extremely honest which made me really trust him. I was quite pleased with the way things were handled throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Michael Smith to anyone who is considering buying a house. Less ... More

Michael was recommended to me by (of all people) my mortage customer service agent. He approached our situation by learning about what WE wanted and tailored everything to what our needs were. This was a fantastic approach. He then found us a good variety of inventory and with his help, we narrowed it down to just two. That was when his expertise in the industry really helped us. He was able to help us make a decision on which house was a better home and a better deal. He then was able to assist us in negotiating a great deal. Thanks Michael, I will (and have) continue to recommend you to anyone looking to buy a home. Less ... More

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
I contacted Michael when we were looking to sell our house and upgrade. Unfortunately, the news wasn't good (we're going to have to spend time saving up a full 20% on an upgrade since we have lost almost all the equity in our house) and we're not engaging his services at this time. But we'll definitely be looking him up again when we're ready. Took the time to fully learn our circumstances, did his research and gave us an honest assessment of the situation. Highly recommend.

Response fromMichael Smith
In this tumultuous market, it is imperative to examine every home in a micro aspect. Homes have to be in ?perfect condition?, from improvements, repairs, and even decorating. If not, the price will need to reflect those deficiencies. Competition is fierce and buyers are extremely persnickety. Too often I see homes that are just ?thrown on the market? in below average condition, priced way above market value, and not promoted correctly. This is a receipt for failure. The result is a frustrated Seller and a disenchanted agent. Moreover, the negative exposure to the market can cause lastly negative effects when the market turns positive. Nearly everyone can look into the market price of a home that was listed a year or more ago. This weakens the leverage for the Seller. Some of the best advice I give Sellers is to stay put. Better days are forthcoming. I look forward on serving you in the near future. Less ... More

Michael Smith is one of the true professionals in the real estate business. He has several years of experience and will help get your house sold as well as find the house of your dreams. Michael has an eye for details and his market analysis is second to none which means you won't over pay when buying and you will have your home priced correctly when selling. I have worked with Michael for over 7 years and he treats his clients like family, you will not find a Real Estate Professional that does a better job of looking out for your best interest. Less ...

I have worked with Michael on many REO Assets in the last 3 years. Michael is proactive, knowledgable and very skilled in the REO field. Michael is a pleasure to work with!! He always performs his tasks/duties timely, efficiently and makes my J-O-B effortless! I never have to worry about an asset I assign to him and they are almost always sold within 30 days, or in most cases much less! He holds my fastest sold record for my inventory! I will continue to send Michael all the business I can in the greater Cleveland and surrounding areas as I know they are in good hands!! Less ... More

Listed and sold a home
This gentleman and his staff relentlessly worked, way above and beyond, to get my house sold. My home was on the market for only a few months before an offer was presented and accepted. Many stumbling blocks followed when it was time to close, but he never gave up even when I wanted to. My house needed a huge amount of work and I didn't think it would even get an offer. Mr. Smith and his staff are masters at marketing and advertising properties that they list. Thank you for selling my home!! Less ... More

Helped me buy and sell homes
From our initial meeting, we were impressed with Mike Smith. Mike was the second agent to list our condo. He came prepared with research and a detailed agenda on selling our condo. His plan worked, because we began having a host of showings followed by an offer within weeks. When it came time to buy, Mike provided us with all the information necessary to make the best decision. We chose a bank owned property which was not the easiest buy, but Mike was there with us, navigating the process from start to finish. He was very responsive to all of our questions and forthcoming with information. I would highly recommend Mike Smith to anyone interested in buying or selling a home. Less ... More

Response fromMichael Smith
I often find myself becoming friends with my clients...Working with Audrey and Frank had a similar outcome. We used a great marketing plan to sell their home quickly and turned around and found them a home that will grow to be great investment for the years to come. Congratulations, Audrey & Frank! By the Way, I'm never too busy for your referrals.
