    I cannot say enough about Michael!!! from being super responsive, to answering my thousands of questions, he is the best of the best. He is extremely easy to work with, and is very knowledgeable. He even recommended a great insurance company for me to work with and ended up with a phenomenal rate. I highly recommend him, I wish I could give more then 5 stars for his service.

    My husband and I worked with Michael on the purchase of our first home. From the beginning, I can't say thank you enough to Michael for his quick replies and responsiveness. He made the entire process for us so smooth and easy, and was available right away for a phone call any time we had any questions. He helped us understand the documents needed and couldn't have been more professional throughout our entire process of buying the home. I can't thank him enough for all he did to help us. We are now settling into our forever home and couldn't have gotten to this point without Michael. Thank you so much - Katie and Max

    Mike was great to work with and had all the answers we needed as first time home buyer. He helped us with everything from getting pre-qualified up until the end when we closed. He was always available when we had questions and always made sure we knew everything that was going on. I would recommend him to everyone!

    Couldn’t believe Michael got me approved for my first mortgage. He was there every step of the way! Straight shooter , tell you how it is to get the deal done with the bank. Communication throughout the process was excellent. His knowledge and professionalism make the experience less stressful and exciting. Would recommend him to anyone for any situation! Me and my family now have a place to call home thanks to the help from Michael.
