Thank you for working so hard for our family to find just the right house. We had many bumps in the road but you sure knew how to deal with them and us. Being a first time homebuyer we were very nervous but you knew the inís and outís and were the best person to help us get through this stressful time. We love our new house and it is finally home.
I just want you to know that you are not only great at what you do but a great person too!
Thanks for everything,
Alissa and Travis - Maplewood
We were so stressed about relocating from Chicago- until we met Michael. The energy and time he devoted to finding us the perfect home was incredible! We are so grateful to have found such a great realtor to help us in our search, and we will use him again if we should move in the future! Thanks Michael.

We want to sincerely thank you for providing us with stellar service in the sale of our home this winter. Having been involved in several real estate transactions these past few years, we have had the opportunity to work with a number of different realtors. We must tell you that your service far exceeds the level we have received in the past. We believe your thorough marketing plan and unique creativity helped us sell our home in such a short time. We will be certain to refer your services to our friends and family.

We want to express our gratitude for all of your help in our home search and purchase. You made an overwhelming process go smoothly. Your professionalism and desire to understand our needs was apparent. Your efforts were beyond all expectations. We will recommend you without hesitation!

Phil and I are so grateful to you for all the hard work and dedication you showed us throughout our family's relocation to the Minneapolis area. Considering we knew nothing about the housing market and were on a limited time schedule, we were greatly impressed by how organized and thorough you were. You quickly honed in on our family's interests, wants and needs for our surroundings, and in doing so, we found the perfect home and location for us.
Thank you for putting our minds at ease during an otherwise stressful time. We have a friend in you and therefore have our recommendation anytime!
Phil and Leslie-Blaine
We wanted to take the opportunity to say "Thanks" for all of your hard work in our relocation. You went above and beyond! You didn't just help us find a house, but also made the relocation so much smoother by offering many business and personal recommendations to make our new house a home. We've truly never worked with a real estate agent that was so accommodating, dedicated and fun! We enjoyed the experience. We will recommend you over and over again.
One of the things that most impressed us was that you were just as courteous to sellers and selling agents as you were to us. You always kept us on our timeline and were prompt with each appointment. We had a short time frame to find a home and you really focused on and understood what we were looking for from the first moment.
You really put the "Integrity" in the Keller Williams Integrity Realty. It was fun and a fabulous experience. We consider you a friend. Thanks so much!

Sonya and I really want to thank you for all of your assistance in finding us the perfect home. With time being of the essence in our relocation from the east coast to the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area, your experience and professionalism was most appreciated. You asked the right questions, listened to our responses, and quickly zoned in on our preferences in an efficient manner. This enabled us to find our new home within the timeframe of an extended weekend.
Among the contributing factors to the success of finding us the right home was; (i) your expansive knowledge of the residential market place within the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area; (ii) a user friendly website; and (iii) timely responses to our emails and phone communications.
In addition, we truly appreciated the fact that your assistance did not stop once our offer was accepted by the seller/builder. You helped us coordinate the home inspection, you put us in contact with an insurance agent and a window treatment company, and you even went out of your way to send us home furnishing catalogs from a local store. Truly amazing!
Michael, please feel free to use us as a reference, as Sonya and I would highly recommend you to friends, family, and colleagues. Thanks again!

Having moved over 12 times in the last 15 years, I knew I had encountered the perfect agent for my relocation from the moment Michael and I began working together on my move to the Twin Cities. Michael's professionalism, courteous manner, and unbelievable organization surpassed all of my expectations.
Due to time constraints, Michael helped me find a great home in a quaint neighborhood close to work within 3 days. No small feat, in part expedited by Michael's hard work prior to my arrival. During my brief home search, Michael accommodated my schedule constraints, and with his amazing organizational skills we toured almost 40 homes in two days. Despite the frenetic pace, I never felt hurried or pushed into making a decision.
Furthermore, his skills in mediation and his accurate assessment of the market helped me avoid purchases that would pose too many challenges in the future. Michael's professionalism extends beyond the sale of the house as he continues to be an excellent source for getting around and getting help in the Twin Cities.
Michael understood what I needed in a home. We initially spoke on the phone to get to know each other and through subsequent conversations he brought up some great ideas and concerns about what we were looking at. He understood my concerns as a single woman as to safety, and the "fix-up" level I was willing to undertake. I would recommend Michael to any of my friends and know he would do a great job with their best interests in mind.

One of my biggest apprehensions about the home buying process was thinking about the chore of finding just the right home. A process that's supposed to be fun and exciting, I knew it was also going to be exasperating. Michael took the chore out of the experience, in fact, the chore turned on him as I turned out to be quite a picky buyer. Michael's perspective on the home-buying event, quick wit and ability to make light of almost every situation with maintaining his professionalism made for a very pleasant experience.
As a Twin Citian with an active schedule, I thought it would be difficult to find common times; however, Michael's availability and resources were a key advantage in our REALTOR-buyer relationship. Michael is a full-time real estate agent- available 24/7, so I knew he was out there and in tune, as opposed to many REALTORS who "dabble" in the business; the market is just too competitive and inundated with 'part-timers', which is why he worked out so well.
When Michael picked me up, he was well prepared. For each day we set out, he had a well-planned driving map of the houses we had chosen to visit. The schedule optimized the trip for minimal car time. We were able to hit 10-12 properties comfortably in a morning with enough time for pre-lunch coffee.
One of Michael's talents is his ability to read a client. Through discussion he learned what I liked and disliked. After a few properties, he would learn my reaction and was able to tailor our searches to my preferences. He was dedicated to only finding a home that I wanted and liked.
Throughout our relationship Michael's concern was me, not his agenda - I was a real person. I finally settled on a South Minneapolis rambler in the heart of the Kenney Park area. I would certainly use Michael again and his card has already been forwarded to acquaintances of mine.
We recently moved to the Minneapolis area after relocating with our jobs. We knew we wanted to stop renting and finally purchase a house to call our own. We had never purchased a house before and did not know where to begin or how the process worked. We asked our family and friends for advice and we were referred to Michael, as we were informed that he specialized in relocations.
We had to make special trips to Minneapolis to look at houses whenever we had free time and Michael was very accommodating with our less than ideal schedules. He is very knowledgeable about the Minneapolis area and always answered all of our questions. We were so glad to have someone on our side that knows so much about all the different areas and neighborhoods in the area since we had very limited knowledge about the city where we were going to be living.
After several trips to Minneapolis, and seeing what seemed like a million houses, we finally found Ďthe oneí. We were definitely pickier than we could afford to be, but we knew that Michael was going to work hard until he found us something, and he did. We needed to move quickly and get into the house as soon as possible and Michael stepped up to the plate and helped us line up everything in between the inspection and closing. He made the whole process easy and painless, even with our ridiculous schedule and circumstances.
The best thing about Michael and the whole process was his service after the sale (I normally hate that term, but that truly is what it is). He came over to the house after closing to check up on the repairs that the sellers agreed to fix (thanks to Michaelís negotiations). The weekend we started to move in, Michael came over with a fabulous house warming gift and checked up on us to see how we liked the neighborhood. We could not be happier with our house and we really look forward to all the things that come with owning our own home, even mowing the lawn and shoveling the driveway! Thank you Michael!
