Mike Carney Of ReMax served as my Realtor in a sale that closed in December 2019. A good friend of mine hired and recommended Mike several years ago, and while I personally knew of at least a half-dozen transactions since that time for which he had received excellent feedback, I was not in the market for his services until October 2019. My high expectations were exceeded at every level. Mike’s listing process was collaborative and based on his extensive research and preparation. Mike was a wonderful combination of creativity and optimism with a healthy dose of realism to manage expectations while maximizing results. His listing description for my property as well as the photographs was outstanding and spot on. Mike was sensitive to my scheduling needs and was available by many different forms of communication and accommodated my technical capabilities. Mike’s industry experience no doubt allowed him to anticipate pitfalls and quickly resolve the inevitable disputes present in all such transactions. Hiring Mike proved to me that a full-time Realtor is the best option when selling a house; I had used part-time Realtors long ago and the difference was astounding. Mike’s “every step of the way” motto is so true; in fact, I would say “every step of the way AND BEYOND.” For example, several weeks after the closing, I had a question related to the sale that I described as “non urgent” in a voicemail. Mike called me back the same day with a detailed response. Refreshingly, Mike’s exceptional customer service is unrelated to the value of a sale; I have been witness to him treating all clients with the same degree of attention. There are so many reasons why I would recommend Mike as a Realtor, but perhaps the one that stood out the most for me, and kept me confident throughout the process, was that Mike does not answer a question with “I think,” “I believe,” “I assume…” Instead, he either gives a straight answer or advises that he needs to talk to the subject-matter expert and get back to me. That drive to get it right was invaluable to me, personally, and so important in an industry whose success relies on attention to detail, timing, and coordination of efforts. It doesn’t take long into a meeting with Mike to see that giving him a call for your real-estate needs was a prudent decision.
