The *BEST* person you can have on your side! We faced multiple hurdles with our purchase and Mike saved us every single time. He worked every curve possible from negation,contingencies to lender options and contract extensions. He even offered to fax and copy paperwork on multiple occasions and opened his office to our use to help us with the process. I do not believe anyone else would have gone as far out of their way to help us like Mike did. Truly an extraordinary and fantastic agent!

After having my house on the market for 4 months during the summer/fall season with very few showings I contacted Mike upon a friend's recommendation when my contract ended with my previous agent. I signed with Mike on a Friday over the phone and via email the day after New Year's and had a fair offer within 3 days. Mike is a solid agent who knows the business and gets his clients solid results. You can't do better than that. Fair and honest, he gets the job done. (and I had not even had a chance to meet him face to face yet!) I rated 5 stars because that is the highest available. I won't hesitate to recommend Mike to anyone! Less ... More

Mike Raivala is awesome! He was kind and patient while I toured every house on the market looking for my home. He helped me to make the right decisions by being honest and fair. His knowledge and expertise helped me to understand the purchasing process as I am a first time home buyer. Mike is a professional realtor and he takes pride in his passion for helping his clients find the perfect home. I often forgot Mike had other clients as I always had his undivided attention. I recommend Mike Raivala to be your realtor! Less ... More

Mike is a great person and a terrific real estate agent. We recently purchased a home through Mike and can definitely say that he is one hard working young man. He consistently went above and beyond the call of duty to answer questions, show us a TON of houses (some several times), and generally make himself available whenever we needed him. After we made an offer on a house and the home inspection uncovered a problem, Mike arranged for a contractor to take care of the issue and negotiated on our behalf with the seller to make sure everything was taken care of to our specifications. He worked quickly and efficiently right up through the closing, taking care of last minute glitches and paperwork in a calm and businesslike manner. He was incredibly patient with us and always treated us with utmost respect. You will be very lucky if you have Mike working for you on a real estate transaction of any type. Less ... More

Mike took on a difficult house selling situation (distressed property with out-of-town owners) and kept working on it until the house sold. He brought his extensive contacts and knowledge of the local housing market, and especially his positive attitude, into getting the house sold. His confidence really helped us through the whole process. Actually, this is the second house Mike has sold for our family.

Every time I contacted Mike about looking at properties he would get a bunch lined up and call me back quickly even on short notice he would get my wife and I in to see them. He worked good with the sellers and was always on time for every appointment. We were not the easiest clients to please but Mike was very patient and did everything we wanted and expected of him he made the home buying experience fun. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Mike was FANTASTIC! He treated us like we were his only client! He sold our house in record time! I highly recommend him since he grew up in the area. He knows all surrounding areas as well if you are moving into the area. Mike as well has followed up with us post sale which shows that he is not all about the sale of your home. He truly wants to ensure you are happy and stay happy. If you are new to the area or local he is a great asset to the Remax name.

Mike was very responsive to all of our needs and he did such a great job generating buzz about our listing, that once the house actually hit the market, it sold in 1 day!

Mike has closed over 20 houses for us and sold 3. He is absolutely the best realtor around. We love the fact that he is licensed in Minnesota and Wisconsin, too! We have been working with Mike for the past 8 years and as investors we have been very happy with Mike's great communication, excellent negotiating skills and knowledge of local homes. He has also helped us buy our own personal home that we love.

Mike helped us sell our house. We placed our house on the market during a bad time of the year, yet it sold within 4 months. We are also in the process of purchasing a new home with him. And, we are using him to sell a different piece of property. I've recommended him to several friends. He answers phone calls and text messages, returns phone calls promptly, and responds to emails within the same day. He knew all the answers to our questions, and he continues to provide us with new listings almost every day, We are very pleased with his thoughtfulness, integrity, hard work, and compassion.
